“It just wasn’t the right timing,” she continues. “I don’t want to embellish on it too much, because I want to respect Kanye’s privacy. But we just had our own reasons.

According to the New York Times, the tour will kick off November 27 at the Bell Center in Montreal and wrap up January 20 and 21 at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Her revised and expanded deluxe re-release of her 2008 debut The Fame, entitled Fame Monster, is due November 23.
