"I've had a cold for a couple days and I've been pushing through it," she said. "I did my show last night and I loved it but I pushed too hard and my cold has gotten the better of me and as you can hear even if I did the show it wouldn't be very good.... I've enjoyed my tour so much and canceling shows is not something I've wanted to do and I've pushed through a lot of things, but I've been trying to sing all morning and warming up but nothing's really happening."
