Chan Marshall, better known as Cat Power, has posted a photo on Instagram along with a note explaing that she is considering canceling her European tour due to bankruptcy and health concerns. Full text of the post follows:

I may have to cancel my European tour due to bankruptcy & my health struggle with angioedema. I have not thrown in any towel, I am trying ot figure out what best I can do. Heart broken. Worked so hard. Got sick day after Sun came out & been struggling to keep all points of me in equilibrium: mind, spirit, body healthy, centered & grounded. I am doing the best I can. I fucking love this planet. I refuse to give up. Though I may need to restrategize for my security & health.

Cat Power will wrap up her North American tour on November 8th at Los Angeles' Hollywood Palladium. Her European tour is scheduled to start on November 26th in Amsterdam.

Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
