Lady Gaga Hit by Pole During Concert
The clichéd saying “the show must go on!” certainly applied to Lady Gaga during one of her Auckland, New Zealand concerts on Sunday, June 10. During the set, the singer was hit in the head by a pole a backup dancer was moving. Rather than simply ending the gig then and there, Gaga, who apparently suffered a concussion from the blow, wobbled a bit and rubbed her head, and went off stage for a short period. She returned soon enough to finish the performance.
About the “Born This Way” singer’s condition, Gaga’s makeup artist updated fans, tweeting: "Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay ... cant believe she finished the show."
The pop star’s series of Auckland shows have, so far, been a success, with sold out tickets. Concussion aside, though, she responded to Madonna’s earlier passive jab at an Israel concert about “Born This Way” being a rip-off of “Express Yourself.” While not directly calling out Madonna, the Mother Monster made the following statement over the weekend in Auckland: "It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work. And that doesn't make me feel good at all. That just makes me feel like I'm not being a good human being. I feel like if you're a really good human being, you can try to find something beautiful in every single person, no matter what. […] [T]hings are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that's what makes 'Born this Way' so relevant for me. We're socially in a different place and it's OK, we don't have to all slice and hate each other anymore."
She told fans, as well, to not be negative and that she will keep writing music.
Do you think Gaga’s right, or is her statement in the same vein as her earlier reused disco beat defense of “Born This Way”?
