Janet Jackson has responded to rumors that she’s undergoing procedures to see if she has throat cancer. The singer posted on Twitter late Wednesday night, in true Janet fashion, about the rumors, which have been circulating over the last couple of days.

Jackson, 49, posted a short, lyric video featuring her song “The Great Forever,” which had a note to fans at the end.



“Remember … believe it when you hear it from my lips. The rumors are untrue,” the message read. “I do not have cancer. I am recovering. My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for your prayers and love.” 

Although Jackson did not state what she was recovering from, last year her tour was rescheduled because of health issues.
