Poor Lady Gaga has been having a rough time in Auckland, New ZealandÂ—she suffered a concussion and revealed to her little monsters that she might be mentally suffering because of Madonna.
Mama Monster was performing "Judas" on Sunday when one of her dancers nailed her in the head with a pole. It's obvious from the video below that the blow to the head had to hurt, but she kept right on performing.
According to Rolling Stone, she later said this to her fans:
"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."
Gaga did finish the show, and her makeup artist later confirmed that she did suffer a concussion while reassuring fans that the singer is doing fine. Hopefully she doesn't suffer any side effects like Justin BieberÂ—his eyebrow seemed to be paralyzed after he suffered a concussion from hitting his head of a glass wall.
Perhaps Madonna should send Lady Gaga some flowers (not hydrangeas, of course) and a Get Well Soon card since she hasn't been very nice to her fellow ambitious blonde. Madge seemed to be mocking Gaga during a recent performance when she mashed up "Express Yourself" and "Born This Way" with "She's Not Me"Â—it was likely her response to talk about how similar "Born This Way" and "Express Yourself" sound. Little Monsters were not happy about Madge's mashup, so they probably did their best to make Gaga aware of the mockery.
And Lady Gaga seemed to be responding to the Madonna diss when she made this speech during another Auckland performance:
"It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work. And that doesn't make me feel good at all. That just makes me feel like I'm not being a good human being."
She also talked about negativity and people tearing her down, but said that she doesn't want fight back because making music is what's important to her. She went on to say, "things are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that's what makes 'Born this Way' so relevant for me. We're socially in a different place and it's OK, we don't have to all slice and hate each other anymore."
She also said that there's no need for people to be shady or "c**t-y." So was she using the c-word to describe Madge?
It really does sound like Gaga was responding to the Queen of Pop's "Born This Way" performanceÂ—Madge's "Express Yourself" was released in 1989, which is a little more than 25 years ago. Gaga was obviously trying to take the high road with her speech, but she did kind of imply that Madge is old and out of touch.
You can check out Mama Monster getting hit in the head below, and her speech is in the second video. It starts around the 2:25 mark.
