Fans clamoring to see Ariana Grande
perform songs from her brand-new album will have to wait just a little bit longer.
The pop star revealed Wednesday that she has to take some time off to allow a hemorrhaged vocal cord to heal. Grande, 20, announced the news the same week her debut album, Yours Truly
, reached number one on the Billboard 200 chart
"First day off in forever ... Vocal rest and watching movies in with my best friend @alexaluria dunno what I'd do without her," the singer and actress Tweeted Wednesday
Early Thursday morning she Tweeted more information
about her condition – and recovery.
"For those of u asking about my voice I screamed too much at my party totally irresponsible but it's better now, thanks for the well wishes," she said.

"ALERT: @ArianaGrande joins me next via #text2voice on @1027KIISFM! She's on voice rest, computer will do the talking!! Not kidding," DJ JoJo Wright Tweeted
