Lady Gaga strikes back at Madonna after suffering blow on the head during New Zealand “Born This Way Concert”
By DiMarkco Chandler
AUCKLAND, New Zealand—Lady Gaga received a blow on the head after one of her dancers allowed a metal pole to slip loosely through his hands and bounce off of the top left side of the pop stars head as they prepared to leave the stage during the end of her hit song Judas. Gaga had stooped to pick up a prop, and as she began to stand up, the metal pole was coming down, colliding and forcefully impacting her skull. After wincing with her shoulders raised, she appeared to be uttering an “I’m OK” to the dancer, and they both moved quickly off the stage as the song was coming to an end.
The incident was caught on camera by fans recording the show, so viewers can interpret events as they occurred.
TMZ reports that Gaga apologized to the audience saying, “I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion. But don’t you worry, I will finish this show.”
Following her Sunday “Born This Way Ball” concert, Gaga expressed that she was hurt by recent statements made by Madonna suggesting that the pop singer’s song, ‘Born This Way,’ was a near-copy of ‘Material Girl.’
During a moment in the Auckland concert, Gaga said that “things are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that’s what makes ‘Born this Way’ so relevant for me… we don’t have to all slice and hate each other anymore.”
It seems that Gaga is maturing with her music, and her reaction to some of the negative comments that have been hurled her way or maybe the concussion she received significantly transformed her mind.
