Gaga has made a name for herself with her hardcore work ethic – among other things – and her recent concert in New Zealand demonstrated this excellently. The 26-year-old singing sensation was performing her hit song “Judas” when one of the background singers accidentally dropped a pipe on her head. This sounds like a problem that only someone with a stage show like Gaga would encounter.
Gaga was in Auckland, New Zealand, on June 10 as part of her Born This Way Ball tour. Video taken by a fan has gone viral, showing the incident and how well Gaga powered through what must have been a screaming headache. She simply grabbed her head for a moment, but kept right on singing. Most people at the show likely had no idea anything had even happened.
The pole was dropped by accident, of course, and Gaga did not seem angry about it. She told the crowd, “I want to apologize. I think I may have a concussion, but don’t you worry, I will finish this show.” She did more than just finish the show – she rocked it singing sixteen more songs!
After completing the concert, Gaga tweeted to her 25 million Twitter fans positive comments about her tour, not mentioning the little mishap.
“I’m having a blast in New Zealand!! The last couple shows have felt like festivals. Just so free, wild, happy. What music is all about it,” the Mother Monster tweeted.
She also tweeted later, “And much gratitude to the New Zealand press for the lovely reviews of our show. My dancers, band, crew, Haus and I than You Xoxo <3,”
Although Gaga didn’t mention the concussion on Twitter, but her make-up artist did, tweeting, “"Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay.She wants u to know she loves u. I'm taking care of her.cant believe she finished the show."
This isn’t the only drama Gaga has endured on her current tour. She was also recently forced to cancel her shows in Jakarta, Indonesia, after the Islamic Defenders Front, a religious group, protested. The group claimed Gaga used “pornographic” dance moves in her shows, and her outfits were immodest enough to ruin the country’s morals. They even went so far as to call her “a messenger of the devil.” Yikes!
"There is nothing Holy about hatred," the singer tweeted after announcing the cancellation. "We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I'm so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more. You are everything to me. I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown. #GagaSendsLoveToJakarta and all its people."
Let’s hope things settle down for Gaga on the rest of her tour, so she can finish in one piece.
