New Jersey native and Love Galore singer Sza had some pretty shocking news for fans. In a bizarre Twitter outburst, she announced that not only was her voice permanently damaged but that it “just won’t f**king work.” Those now deleted tweets were sent Tuesday, May 29th after she had taken days off of the TDE Championship Tour to rest her vocal chords. It was that Madison Square Garden performance that was the last straw for her with her saying “Tonight was the test. That settles that,” she wrote in a series of posts archived by Vulture. “I jus wanna be left alone my priorities are f—ed up. They been f—ed up. I need space goodbye.”

“For anyone who hasn’t seen this . I’ve been touring for 11 months. This didn’t happen overnight,” she continued. “I’ve been troubleshooting for a while now and Usually steroids and pushing through help. They don’t this time . I’m not sick my voice just won’t f—ing work. If I don’t pause now I’ll be forced to pause permanently . I’m genuinely sorry for every face, voice ,and energy field I won’t be touching ! I’m literally taking as many steroids as I can to speed this up!! Its a waiting game and super weird to be blamed for stuff outta my control but I get it ! again .. I’m sorry..I’ll be right back . Pray for me or don’t . Preciate u either way.”

Barely a year after her debut album came out, to be having these types of outbursts are both unprofessional and shows her inability to be either reliable as an artist or manage her career. I definitely sympathize with her because a grueling schedule can get the best of any of us but you have to not only make it work but in a way where you’re not sending out pleas for help in the middle of all of it. From a business standpoint this looks like a derailing train that the best thing you can do is stay far away from. For now, we’ll just pray and hope for the best.
