Lorde may be sick, but her sense of humor is still very healthy.

The “Team” singer announced in a series of tweets late on Monday that she had to postpone her Australian tour due to a “nasty chest infection.”

After explaining that she has been “non-stop” since January — when she won two Grammys — the 17-year-old joked that she needed the time off “to get back to full gollum girl fitness” before she resumed her tour in November.

Gollum, of course, is the “precious”-obsessed character from The Lord of the Rings, whom Lorde has often been compared to when she performs.

“When I’m onstage, I don’t think about how it looks, I just concentrate on really feeling what I hear,” she said in a Reddit Q&A in December. “But I totally know I look like Gollum when I perform, so it’s cool.”
