Lady Gaga has canceled four upcoming shows because she CAN'T WALK. She explained the situation on Twitter…she says she’s been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for some time now. After her last performance she says “I could not walk and still can’t. It’ll hopefully heal as soon as possible.” Apparently, she has a case of "synovitis"…or a severe joint inflammation.
Meanwhile, we had previously heard that Lady Gaga wanted to buy the Neverland Ranch. Now there are rumors that Jay-Z and Beyonce want it. The property sits on almost 2,500 acres in Southern California, an hour outside of Los Angeles.

Obviously, this doesn't prove anything…and that moment represents one brief instant of the standing ovation. I mean, Taylor could have already stood up and then sat back down…but it sure doesn't look like it.
