On her Twitter account Wednesday, Jackson posted a two-minute clip from her song "The Great Forever," followed by a personal message in which she said she's recovering but offered no further details. She said her doctors have approved her concerts as scheduled in Europe.

She denied having cancer, an apparent response to online reports that she was suffering from throat cancer.

The announcement came less than two weeks after Jackson said she was postponing her "Unbreakable" tour to have an unspecified surgical procedure.

Jackson had been next scheduled to perform Saturday in Denver. She was scheduled to perform in Europe in March.

Her "Unbreakable" tour has been in the Top 20 global concert tour listing compiled by Pollstar.
