Meghan Trainor has been instructed to take the rest of 2016 off.
The “All About That Bass” pop singer has canceled remaining shows this year after being put on vocal rest by a doctor. Trainor had at least five scheduled shows in December, including gigs in New York, Washington D.C., and Atlanta. The 22-year-old had tried to power through shows last week, but could not push herself anymore.
“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. This absolutely kills me because I was so excited to see all of you on the road,” Trainor wrote in an emotional Instagram post. “I’m going to go home and rest so I can get back to see you all 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.”
“I don’t know how much I believe in all that stuff, but I’m doing it just in case,” she said. “I’ve got two humidifiers next to my bed. I do 40 minutes of vocal warm-ups. We try not to talk for the first two hours of the day. We’ve been working out every day, which is a blessing because nothing else makes me motivated to work out. We have all our throat sprays on the stage. And I drink a lot of water.”
