After a report surfaced on Tuesday claiming that Janet Jackson had cancer, the GRAMMY winner refuted the rumor in a video tweeted on Wednesday.

The 2-minute clip is a lyric video to her tune, "The Great Forever," from her 2015 album, Unbreakable, which seems to perfectly sum up her feelings towards the report.

"Sources say, but where ya gettin' it? / Don't create the truth you like," Janet sings. "What you think, it don't mean nothing at all / Doesn't change who I am / Doesn't change who I love."

The 49-year-old singer announced on Christmas Eve that she needed to have surgery that would force her to postpone her Unbreakable Tour until spring. The tour was originally scheduled to launch Jan. 9.

Following her announcement reports claimed that the surgery was intended to remove a "tumor that could be cancerous."

At the end of the video, the text reads: "The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I'm recovering."

It is still unclear why Jackson had surgery.

In the video, Janet goes on to assure fans that she has a doctor's approval to carry on with concerts in Europe as planned, and she promises to reschedule the dates that were already canceled.

Get well soon, Janet!
