"Brazil, I'm devastated that I'm not well enough 2 come to Rock In Rio. I would do anything 4 u but I have to take care of my body right now," she tweeted.

"I ask for your grace and understanding, and promise that I will come back and perform for you soon," the singer said in a subsequent post.

"I was taken to the hospital its not simply hip pain or wear & tear from tour, I'm in severe pain. I'm in good hands w/ the very best doctors," she added.
