Lady Gaga took a shocking tumble Thursday at her Las Vegas residency show at the Park MGM.
The "Poker Face" singer jumped into the arms of a fan she had invited onstage. Afterward, the Little Monster lost his balance and the pair fell into the audience.
Fans shrieked and rushed to help as the man landed on top of the bisexual pop star, who was briefly pinned under him on her back. There was reason for concern. Gaga has grappled with a number of health issues in the past. She suffers from a pain disorder, fibromyalgia, and fractured her hip in 2013, which required her to obtain a replacement joint.
Thankfully, Gaga assured the crowd she was fine as she got back up and walked the length of the stage through the audience. “Everything’s OK,” she said. “The only thing that’s not OK is we need some stairs for the damn stage so I can get back up.”
The A Star Is Born actress brought the fallen fan back onstage with her, gave him a hug, and assured him he was not to blame. “It’s fine. It’s not your fault,” she said. “I suppose we should have some tea after that, huh? That is a fall!"
"Can you promise me something? Would you just forgive yourself right now for that happening?” she told the fan, who appeared shaken by the incident. Gaga also warned trolls on social media: "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."
To the cheers of the crowd, Gaga invited the fan to sit beside her at the piano for a song, where they shared another hug. The incident was captured on video by various audience members who posted clips to social media.
It is not confirmed if Gaga or the fan were injured at all in the fall. Gaga is set to perform her next "Enigma" show Saturday with no news of cancellation at present. The performance is pop-based and includes stunts like a zip-line arrival to the stage. Another set, "Jazz & Piano," is less physically demanding; it features a 30-piece band and standards from the Great American Songbook, and is still scheduled for Sunday.
This is not the first time drama has made headlines from Gaga's Vegas show. Earlier this year, the "Bad Romance" singer took Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence to task for their religious hypocrisy.
"And to Mike Pence who thinks it's acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ [people], you are wrong," she said. "You say we should not discriminate against Christianity, you are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian. I am a Christian woman, and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and you can look yourself in the mirror and you'll find it right there."
