John Mayer has been diagnosed with a serious throat condition. (And, no, it’s not gonorrhea. Color me shocked.)
The singer announced via Tumblr that he has granuloma, an inflamed nodule close to his vocal chords, which renders him unable to perform at his upcoming singing obligations, like the iheartradio Music Festival and an accompaniment with Tony Bennett in L.A.
John wrote that after “several months of going week to week monitoring and hoping to correct the condition,” he’s finally decided to put the kibosh on singing until he gets better. His latest album will be released next year rather than later this year as a result.
There’s no word on his recovery time, though he calls the situation a “temporary setback,” so I’m not too worried. In fact, I have little doubts that he’ll be making his ‘O’-face on stage again in no time!
