The singer released a statement trying to explain to fans that it's been difficult balancing her personal life with what has been a tireless year. She's made the bill on some of 2013's biggest festivals.

"i am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was...but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record...I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family. I am so so sooooo sorry if Ive disappointed...... and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!"
