Sorry, Megatrons, but the MTrain has been temporarily derailed.
Meghan Trainor has announced that she’s been placed on “strict vocal rest,” forcing her to cancel the rest of her performances for the year. The 22-year-old singer broke the news to fans on Instagram this morning (December 8) with a heartfelt note.
“I posted last week that I wasn’t feeling great, but was powering through the best that I could,” she wrote. “Unfortunately, I am not feeling any better and after leaving the doctor today, I have been put on a strict vocal rest for the next two weeks.”
She continued, “This absolutely kills me because I was so excited to see all of you on the road. I’m going to go home as soon as I can. I love you so much and am so appreciative of your love and support that you constantly show me. You mean everything to me. Can’t wait to see you in 2017!”
This isn’t the first time health issues have plagued Trainor’s performance schedule. In the summer of 2015, she suffered a vocal cord hemorrhage and was forced to cancel the rest of her MTrain tour to undergo vocal-cord surgery.
Just last weekend, Trainor hit the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball stage in Los Angeles. She had several East Coast concerts and more Jingle Ball performances scheduled in the next few weeks in Connecticut, New York City, Florida, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta. While those sadly won’t go on as planned, at least she’ll be able to enjoy the holiday season with her family (and new boo Daryl Sabara) before hopefully returning with a clean bill of health next year.
