Superstar songstress Janet Jackson released a video on Twitter Wednesday with a message dismissing the rumours that she had cancer.

On Christmas Eve, the singer announced that she would be forced to postpone her upcoming tour which led to reports stating her doctors finding a tumour on the singer’s throat.

The video showed the lyrics to her single “the Great Forever” off her most recent album before the statement began .

“The rumours are untrue. I do not have cancer. I’m recovering,” the statement read.

Jackson also stated that she will be able to return in time for the European leg of her tour which kicks off March 30th in Birmingham, England. The tour was originally supposed to kick off in Denver on January 9th.

“My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled.”

It seems as though Jackson will appear as scheduled at her two Canadian dates: Montreal (June 18th) and London, Ont.  (June 19th).

Jackson had originally announced the postponement on her web site on Dec. 24th.

“ I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced.“
