Yes, that’s a video of Lady Gaga performing her song “Judas” at a concert when one of her dancers bops her on the head with a gigantic metal pole. As you can see, he bopped her pretty damn hard, but she didn’t miss a beat, and she performed another 16 songs before the show was over. Oh, and at some point, she 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.”
After the show, Lady Gaga’s makeup artist confirmed via Twitter that she actually did get a concussion:
“Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay.She wants u to know she loves u. I’m taking care of her.cant believe she finished the show.”
Even if you don’t like Lady Gaga, you’ve got to admit that she has a crazy work ethic. I’m sure it never crossed her mind for even a second to stop performing after she, you know, got whacked on the head by a metal pole, and that’s dedication. Well, it’s either dedication or stupidity.
Have you guys ever gotten a concussion? It’s the worst. A few years ago, I was sleeping over at my dad’s apartment, and he has these really hard floors. I woke up early in the morning because I was thirsty, and I remember heading over towards the kitchen to get a drink, and the next thing I knew, I was sitting on the floor, and my head hurt so bad. I just sat there for a minute because I couldn’t even believe that it hurt so much. I tried to stand up, but I couldn’t really manage it, and most of this is kind of hazy, but I think I crawled to the couch and went back to sleep. I still don’t remember what happened, but if I’m pretty sure I tripped over my pants and busted my head on the floor. I never went to the doctor because my 20-year-old self didn’t have health insurance or a job or common sense, but I’m fairly certain that was a concussion. And I’m completely certain that I wouldn’t have been able to put on a show immediately afterwards.
In addition to discussing concussions, a popular theory floating around the internet is that Lady Gaga’s concussion was a sign from God that she needs to stop singing such devilish songs. You can tell because she got hit right after she sang the name of “Judas.” Eerie stuff, you guys.
Just in case anything happens to the video, you can watch it over at TMZ. I wouldn’t want you to miss this.
