Ouch! Lady Gaga suffered a concussion while performing in Auckland, New Zealand. But the Mother Monster didn’t halt the show, instead playing 16 songs after being smacked upside the head with a stage prop.

Gaga, who recently seemed to respond to Madonna’s onstage diss of her music, was performing ‘Judas,’ dressed in white, when Mark, who is one of her dancers, accidentally hit her on the head with a pole. She didn’t miss a note or get knocked off her game, despite get knocked in the skull. She rubbed her head for a second and kept going. What a trooper.

GagaMedia reports that while on stage, Gaga said, “I want to apologize, I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion but don’t you worry. I will finish this show.” And finish this show is just what the Mother Monster did. She likely had a pretty ripping headache as a result of the knock she took on the noggin, though.

Kudos to her for being so selfless. Concussions are dangerous things, and they’ve become prominent in the media recently due to so many NFL players sustaining them.

The singer’s makeup artist Tara Savelo, about whom Gaga often tweets, confirmed that Gaga was indeed concussed but that she is feeling better.

That’s great news. Below is Savelo’s tweet, where she assures little monsters that she is taking good care of Gaga.
