Rock in Rio released a statement saying that “… To ensure the party in Rock City continues, Maroon 5 will replace Lady Gaga’s performance…” [here].
Last month, Gaga announced a new Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two. She recently revealed that she suffers from a chronic illness called fibromyalgia, a disorder that causes muscle pain, fatigue, sleep issues, and more.

and… Selena Gomez revealed yesterday that she had actually undergone a kidney transplant this summer, which was necessary because of her lupus.
I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
