AceShowbiz - Doja Cat has canceled some of her upcoming performances to focus on her health. On Friday, May 20, the "Planet Her" artist announced that she has pulled out of The Weeknd's tour and a number of upcoming festival appearances due to tonsil surgery.
The 26-year-old shared the news on Instagram Story. "Hi guys. I wanted you to hear it from me first. Unfortunately I have to have surgery on my tonsils asap. The surgery is routine but the recovery is going to take a while due to swelling," she began her message.
"That means I have to cancel my festival run this summer as well as The Weeknd tour," Doja added. "I feel horrible about this but can't wait for this to heal and get back to making music and create an experience for y'all."
Doja was supposed to serve as The Weekend's "After Hours Til Dawn Tour" opener. The North American leg of the tour are set to take place between early July and September.
The "You Right" singer got candid about her illness on Thursday. "dr. just had to cut into my left tonsil. i had an abscess in it. my whole throat is f**ked so i might have some bad news for yall coming soon," she began sharing.
Detailing on how her infected tonsil got worse, Doja continued, "nah so my tonsils got infected before bbmas and i was taking f**kin antibiotics but forgot that i was taking them and then i drank wine and was vaping all day long." She added, "Then i started getting a nasty a** growth on my tonsil so they had to do surgery on it today."

"And then all the pus and the goop and the guck was oozing and there was poop in there and the poop was s**tting out of my big inflamed throat pimple and it was squirting and there was poop POOP N SQUIRTING BLOOD AND CUM AND PISS."
Noting that she will get them "removed for sure very soon," Doja additionally announced, "im quitting the vape for a while and hopefully i dont crave it anymore after that."
