Lady Gaga has already proven herself to be one of the greatest performers of all time, but in case there was still any question around the topic, on Thursday night Gaga once again reiterated that she is worthy of her Mother Monster title. In short, she invited a fan on stage, he picked her up, dropped her off the stage, and she kept going like nothing happened. Rah-rah-we’re not worthy.
Gaga was performing in Las Vegas on Thursday night as part of her Lady Gaga Enigma residency at MGM when she invited the fan up, a commonplace occurrence in a Gaga show. What’s not common is for the fan to then pick up Gaga, but she’s a pro and went with it. Unfortunately, the fan didn’t quite have the right footing for his bold move and quickly began to stumble, falling off the stage while still holding the Oscar winner. The say you should never meet your idols. We’d like to make an addendum: you should never pick up your idols.
The fall was captured on smartphones by many in Gaga’s audience, who, like us now watching the videos at home, probably thought she was either dead or seriously injured. We’ve seen popstars fall of the stage before, but this one looked especially bad.
Lady Gaga had an unfortunate fall off the stage tonight at Enigma after a fan picked her up and tripped.
Gaga crashed down first with the fan falling on top of her. She got right back up and continued the show. We hope both her and the fan are okay.

Amazingly Gaga, who has been forced to cancel shows and even tours in the past due to injuries, appeared to survive the ordeal unscathed. We feel like we need to book an appointment with a massage therapist after watching the video. The singer not only got right back on stage but brought the fan along with her. Seeing that he was emotionally distressed after dropping his idol (no kidding), Gaga invited the fan to remain on stage with her for her next song, even hugging him. And knowing that the internet isn’t always full of rainbows and butterflies, Gaga was quick to ask her fan to forgive himself and remind others to be kind to him. “Can you promise me something? Can you just forgive yourself right now for that happening?” said Gaga. “It takes two to tango.

Imagine after this fall, you stand up and go to the stage and immediately defend this kid and then you sing with him. Only lady gaga can do this, she is real hero, I am so proud. For the whole morning I feel so sad because this happened, I just hope she is ok. pic.twitter.com/NO8iqxO4ky

Gaga got a bit of R&R after the show in her standard ice bath, followed by a hot bath and compression suit, which is apparently a recipe for staying healthy after falling off a stage. We bow down, Gaga.
