Lady Gaga Took a Dramatic Fall Off Stage
She may be far from the shallow, but she’s definitely met the ground.
During Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas Enigma residency on Thursday night, the performer invited a fan on stage. She then jumped into his arms and wrapped her legs around his waist. Clearly unaware of his proximity to the edge of the stage (and glory), the fan stepped backward, sending himself and Gaga off the deep end.
But Gaga, resilient angel of goodness and chart dominance, bounced back quickly, telling the concerned crowd, “Everything’s OK,” as she and the fan made their way back to the stage. “The only thing that’s not OK is we need some stairs for the damn stage so I can get back up,” she joked. She can also be heard consoling the fan who dropped her, telling him, “It’s not your fault,” and coaxing him back on stage.
After sitting down before her piano, Gaga made the fan promise he wouldn’t be sad about the incident. "And if anybody on the internet is mean to you tomorrow about this then I'm going to be very upset with each and every one of them," she told the crowd.
“We f—king love each other so much that we fell off the damn stage ... we're like Rose and Jack from Titanic,” Gaga told the shaken fan.
And then — break out the tissues — they sang together:
After the bodily traumatic performance, Gaga underwent her fairly intense “post-show routine” which consists of an “ice bath for 5-10 min, hot bath for 20, then compression suit packed with ice packs for 20.”
Gaga has another show on Saturday, so hopefully the fall doesn’t prove too debilitating.
