Lady Gaga has undergone surgery after suffering a labral tear of the right hip following a bout of severe inflammation to the joint. As previously reported, the injury caused her to cancel her US tour earlier this month.

Writing about the medical procedure in a message posted on her Little Monsters social network, the singer said: “Everything happened so fast, but when it came time to face it I reflected on the many stories and experiences you’ve shared with me about your lives … So I thought to myself, I’m alive, I’m living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road”.

She added: “I’m grateful because this is temporary, and for some it is not. You have changed my life. I love you and am proud to be a part of your lives. If you can do it, I can do it too, and if we stick together we can get through anything”.
