It wasn’t clear what she was suf­fer­ing from or where she was be­ing treated. She posted a photo on In­sta­gram of her arm with a nee­dle in it and a tube run­ning out­side the photo’s frame.

Rock in Rio, which starts Fri­day, is to fea­ture Ma­roon 5, Fergie, Aero­smith, Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chili Pep­pers and Guns N’ Roses.

Ear­lier this month, Lady Gaga post­poned a Mon­treal con­cert, cit­ing laryn­gi­tis and a res­pi­ra­tory in­fec­tion. She has pre­vi­ously said she suf­fers from chronic pain from fi­bromyal­gia.
