Singer Janet Jackson has denied she has cancer after postponing a US concert tour to have surgery.

On her Twitter account, the 49-year-old posted a two-minute clip from her song The Great Forever, followed by a personal message in which she said she is recovering but offered no further details.

She added that her doctors have said she can go ahead with concerts scheduled for Europe.

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

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

Jackson had next been scheduled to perform in Denver, Colorado, on Saturday. She is due to do a series of concerts in Europe in March.

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