Lady Gaga shares photos of bruised face after suffering concussion
Lady Gaga shared photos of her injuries after suffering a concussion obtained during a performance in New Zealand on June 10.
"Emerging from hours of sleep. Still remiss if I should go outside, with this clonker I may be of questionable styling," Gaga Tweeted on June 11, along with a photo which shows the pop star lying down, with an orange-tinged bruise on her left cheek.
Gaga thanked her fans for their support, writing, "Thank you so much for all the thoughtful messages. I feel a bit woozy but a little better every day. Very happy to be in beautiful Australia."
Gaga was performing "Judas" during the concert when she was struck on the head by a pole by a dancer who was removing the prop from the stage. The performance occurred during the third of her three shows in Auckland and was seen in several clips on YouTube.
Just after the incident, Gaga can be seen holding a fake machine gun and briefly pauses after getting struck and later rubs her head before leaving the stage.
The singer continued singing the song and even finished the show. Gaga's, makeup artist Tara Savelo, wrote about the incident on Twitter.
"Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay.She wants u to know she loves u," Savelo wrote. "I'm taking care of her.cant believe she finished the show."
The 26-year-old singer is currently on her world tour. She was recently forced to cancel a show in Indonesia due to threats of violence and other security concerns for the audience in attendance.
Fellow pop star Justin Bieber also recently suffered a concussion, after walking into a glass wall during a secret show in Paris. He passed out for a few seconds but finished his performance.
