Mother Monster told fans she had surgery on her hip this week. In a post on her blog, she thanked her Little Monsters for their support and strength through her time of injury and cancellation of her Born This Way Ball.

"Monsters, You really gave me a lot of strength today. 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. Meeting you backstage, reading your letters, watching you communicate with fans from around the globe to form a community that supports one another--You have completely blown my mind. As they wheeled me into surgery today, I thought about all of your pain and perseverance,  your unique family situations, school environments, health issues, homelessness, identity struggles -- sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me. I wonder how it's even possible. So I thought to myself, I'm alive, I'm living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road. 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. Love, Gaga"

Due to Gaga's hip injury she had to cancel the remaining twenty-two dates of the Born This Way Ball. Lady Gaga announced via Twitter the troubles she was having on tour with her injury earlier this month.

Wishing Gaga a speedy recovery!
