There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

We have some bad news for Janelle Monáe fans!
The Electric Lady has been forced to postpone tour dates in Anaheim, San Diego and Phoenix this week after orders from her doctor to go on "mandatory vocal rest."
"Starting today, I am under strict doctor's orders for mandatory vocal rest. Not doing so could possibly result in damage to my vocal cords. Unfortunately, this diagnosis means I will have to postpone my coming concerts in Anaheim, San Diego and Phoenix, a fact which truly leaves me heartsick and shaken because I live for this: connecting with you and giving you a one of a kind concert experience. But alas, apparently even the most expertly designed android breaks down sometimes and must recharge…I promise to see you sooner than you think my friends, stronger than ever."
There is nothing to be sorry for, gurl! These things happen to the most talented of the talented and as much as you'd like us to think otherwise, you're not superhuman! LOLz!
Anyway, we're sure the fans would much prefer to have dates postponed then for that stunning voice to be permanently damaged.
Get well soon because we miss you already!!!!
