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.
