AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Lady Gaga carried on singing despite suffering concussion when she was hit on the head with a metal pole by a male backing dancer during a concert in New Zealand on Sunday night.
Hard-headed or perhaps protected by her high yellow hair, the pop singer at first seemed unfazed when the dancer picked up the metal pole on stage and accidentally whacked her on the head with it, while turning and facing the other way.
Lady Gaga was in the middle of performing the song "Judas" but didn't let the hit stop her.
She briefly brushed her yellow hair in place, raised her machine gun prop and pressed on with the performance -- with the whole incident captured on a video clip posted on YouTube.
But later on she told the crowd at the Vector Arena in Auckland, "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," TMZ reported.
Lady Gaga's makeup artist Tara Savelo confirmed on Twitter the star had suffered 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," she tweeted.
Lady Gaga performed three shows in New Zealand over the weekend and is now headed to Australia.
The US singer -- who has over 25 million Twitter fans known as "monsters" -- tweeted Friday, "I'm having a blast in New Zealand!! the last couple shows have felt like festivals. Just so free, wild, happy. What music is all about it."
