Lady Gaga has canceled the remainder of her "Born This Way Ball" tour after suffering a hip injury.

"After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip," tour promoter Live Nation said in a release. "She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour so she can heal."

So I guess after the surgery, her hip will no longer be able to say it was born that way.

Initially, the singer thought she'd only have to cancel four dates. But apparently her hip disagreed. There's no word on when shows may be made up.

The Chicago Tribune reported that the 21 canceled concerts could cost Gaga and the concert industry more than $35 million in lost revenue.

Among the shows canceled were dates in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Atlanta and Miami.
