Lady Gaga checked herself into the hospital on Wednesday to undergo hip surgery.

The 26-year-old pop superstar announced the news to her fans on Twitter. "Going in for surgery now. Thank you so much for sending me love and support," she tweeted. "I will be dreaming of you," she added.

The so-called Mother Monster announced earlier this month that a hip injury sustained during a performance had forced her to cancel the remaining dates of her Born This Way Ball tour.

A press release explaining the injury clarified that Gaga had sustained "a labral tear of the right hip" that needed surgery to repair.
