cat Power

As many of my fans know, I've been suffering from angioedema. It can attack at random & is extremely frightening and dangerous when it hits my throat, windpipe, or tongue, and I've been hospitalized for it eight times since the first attack, 2 DAYS AFTER MY RECORD RELEASE.

Since then, I worked very very hard with all the best allergists, cardiologists, neurologists, accupuncurists, homeopathists & renowned healers that I could find, Body Talk, Reiki, Yoga, etc. so that I COULD DO THIS AMERICAN TOUR.

I did my best & I want to do MORE & BETTER.

The American tour has been wonderful and amazing, and with me being unable to AFFORD to bring my show with full production, (which i helped create) to Europe, financially, really dumped a huge additional amount of stress on me as i was and still am fighting trying to get tour support.

I have to postpone my European tour until early next year, so I can return home and re-engage myself back into my health regimen.

I fucking love my fans.

Everything I do regarding my career, I FIRST, think of my fans and this world we all share.

But right now, I HAVE TO think of myself because I have to learn trough meditation & being clear from alcohol & cigarettes & red meat and lots of rest amongst my menagerie of doctors.... I have to think of MYSELF right now because I have to now LEARN to heal myself.

Through that, I can learn to help others to heal themselves.

I know my fans will understand and I thank them and love them much more than I believe they could ever know.

I am here and do what I do, for them and because of them.

You have kept me alive this long, I refuse to give up on you OR MYSELF.

And that goes to all the journalists who write a true story as well. To you all in the struggle. May light be on your path at every step.

Love always

Cat Power aka Chan Marshall Instagrammed the above picture and message which announces her European tour cancellation. She previously warned she might cancel, but then said she would go on with a lower budget tour. That obviously didn't work out. Feel better Chan!

Medically, is angioedema a real thing, or is it just a euphemism for crazy?

She needs her a mouthful of Gallo jizz.

7:42 as an MD I can assure you that angioedema is 100% real. One of it's chief causes is having your Hollywood Scientoligist boyfriend dump you and then two months later turn around and marry a fashion model 10 years younger than you are.

So self-indulgent.

^yup, incredibly. This 'press release' is record setting in terms of delusional self-righteous narcissism.

8:30 you're an MD like I'm Abe Fuckin' Lincoln...

I hear the cure to angioedema is stoping to CAP every third WORD.

Posted by ME | November 5, 2012 11:53 PM

lol at 11:50 pointing out that 8:30 isn't an MD

Chan, honey, I got love for you, but you're supposed to crunch the numbers BEFORE you book a tour. You don't book a tour and THAN figure out you can't afford it. PLEASE get someone in your life with some common sense. THANK you.

sadly, I think Chan is going to find out the hard way that no one is going to put up with this bullshit unless you're a smoking hot chick.

^c'mon we all know it's true.

what the fuck does a cardiologist have to do with it?

for the love of god, someone take twitter away from her. No one needs to read a nervous breakdown happening real time.

This chick needs to get over herself!
She's got talent but please stop this pity me crap!
Agreeed take her off social media forums!
If she had a good publicist or PR person we would have never heard about this.
This only makes her look worse than she really is!
Call the Wha-ambulance!

This is what happens when an otherwise nice person never learns necessary life skills, such as how the fuck to handle a breakup.

Chan, I love you (really I do) but honey you must stop this madness, take some time off, get a job on a farm or something and figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.

We'll wait for ya.
