After resting and consulting with my doctors, family and staff, I headed to Europe in an effort to continue the tour. I did six live shows, but it cost me a lot. Last weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and gave my all to people in Brazil. After leaving the stage, exhaustion took over me and I realized that I need to make my health a priority now. So I’m taking a break from touring for now. I’ll be fine, but I need time to rest and get better. I am so proud to bring this show and our message of justice to the world.
Thank you for your prayers and support through all of this! Love you all”.
