Leave it to Mama Monster to still look fab and fierce even with a huge black eye! Lady Gaga posted a pic to her Twitter today showing off her shiner, the result of an onstage mishap that happened this Sunday during a New Zealand concert. “Emerging from hours of sleep,” she wrote. “Still remiss if I should go outside, with this clonker I may be of questionable styling.” If you ask us, it just looks like some kind of funky eye shadow. Work it, Gaga!
For those of you just tuning in, a dancer accidentally gave Gags a whack with a metal pole right in the middle of “Judas.” Oh the betrayal! But ever the pro, Lady Gaga didn’t miss a note and kept right on singing. In fact, she finished the remaining 16 songs! “I want to apologize,” she reportedly told the crowd after the incident. “I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion. But don’t you worry, I will finish this show.” The poor pop princess was indeed left with a concussion, in addition to her bruised left eye and cheek.
Despite the setback, Gaga hasn’t slowed down much, continuing on to Australia in order to bring her Born This Way Ball to her adoring aussie fans, many of whom have been sending her well wishes and good vibes. “Thank you so much for all the thoughtful messages,” she tweeted on Monday. “I feel a bit woozy but a little better everyday. Very happy to be in beautiful Australia.” Watch the whole freaky moment in the clip above. If it doesn’t prove that Lady Gaga is the hardest working gal in show-biz, then we don’t know what will!
