Bad news for synthpop fans in the Canadian prairies. Adorable musical pixie Grimes has had to cancel dates in Calgary, Sasaktoon and Winnipeg due to issues with hearing loss. Via Exclaim:

Boucher broke the bad news via her Twitter today (October 16), writing, “Hey guys, so sorry 4 the cancelled shows. im having trouble w hearing loss, tinnitus & am trying 2 stay away from loud music 4 a bit.” 

She then added, “The cancelled dates are calgary, winnipeg & saskatoon—am still planning to finish the tour and will try 2 get back 2 canada asap <3.”

How can Grimes have tinnitus? She’s like 15. How can she have screwed up her hearing so early in her career?
