NEW DELHI: Lady Gaga has endured the pain of her fibromyalgia condition for five years, which has led the pop star to postpone the planned European leg of her Joanne World Tour.

The ‘Million Reasons’ hit-maker has admitted that it has been difficult dealing with the widespread muscular pain for the past few years, but praised her fans for not letting her lose herself.
 
While speaking in a trailer for her upcoming Netflix documentary, ‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’, she said, “I have chased this pain for five years. But, when I feel the adrenaline of my music and my fans, I can f***ing go.”

The footage also shows medical procedures performed on Gaga, though the clip additionally touches on the creation of the singer-songwriter’s most recent album, Joanne.
 
The clip also includes a touching sequence involving Gaga visiting her grandmother, whose daughter inspired the LP’s title following her battle with Lupus, which resulted in her death at age of 19 in 1974.
 
Meanwhile, Gaga has postponed her European tour due to “severe physical pain”.
 
A statement from her label read, “Lady Gaga is devastated that she has to wait to perform for her European fans. She plans to spend the next seven weeks proactively working with her doctors to heal from this and past traumas that still affect her daily life, and result in severe physical pain in her body.”
 
Continuing, “She wants to give her fans the best version of the show she built for them when the tour resumes. Lady Gaga sends her love to all her fans across Europe and thanks them for their support and understanding.”
 
‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’ premieres September 22 on Netflix and in a limited number of theaters.
