On Wednesday morning, FKA twigs posted a heartfelt letter (and accompanying dance choreography) on Instagram, informing her fans she underwent laparoscopic surgery to have six fibroid tumors removed from her uterus in December. She writes, in part:

“I know that a lot of women suffer from fibroid tumors, and I just wanted to say after my experience that you are amazing warriors and that you are not alone. You can get through this. And with this I let go of the pain…love always Twigs.”


Wise words from a typically private star—great to see her healthy again!

Then Judd Apatow appeared.

I’m so happy people are talking about having surgery for this kind of stuff. Fibroids are no joke and make life so hard. Women should know all the pain and bleeding aren’t normal and there is help.
