Pop superstar Lady GaGa is recuperating after undergoing dental surgery on Thursday (17Apr14).

The Poker Face hitmaker is set to kick off her artRave: The ARTPOP Ball tour on 4 May (14) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but took time to have her wisdom teeth pulled before embarking on her world trek.

She took to Twitter.com and wrote, "Wisdom teeth out. P-p-Percocet p-p-Percocet (pain reliever)."

The singer also posted a photo of herself sitting in a bed hugging a stuffed monkey, alongside the caption, "Chipmunk Cheeks. Wisdom Teeth out before tour. I can't eat. I'm gonna put some meatballs in a blender."
