LADY Gaga’s latest hit came courtesy of a metal pole wielded by one of her back-up dancers during her last show in New Zealand and gave the superstar a suspected concussion.
The pop singer was performing hit Judas at the Vector Arena in Auckland on Sunday evening when she received the accidental thump to the top of the head.
Sporting yellow hair, wearing a white dress and holding a machine gun, Gaga could be seen staggering for a moment after being hit but quickly pulled herself together and continued performing, a YouTube clip of the incident shows.
TMZ.com reported that she later told fans at the concert: “I want to apologise. I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion. But don’t you worry, I will finish this show.”
Gaga, who has over 25 million Twitter fans known as “monsters”, praised New Zealand in a tweet on Saturday: “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”.
Gaga is now heading to Australia after performing three shows in New Zealand.
