You don't have to have seen Enigma, Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas show, to know it’s a wild time. When Lady Gaga’s residency at the Park MGM’s Park Theater goes according to schedule, it’s two hours of glitter, pyrotechnics, and all of her greatest hits (plus some deep cuts). But when Lady Gaga had a dramatic fall off of the stage during her performance last Thursday, fans learned that Enigma is, somehow, even more of an event when things go awry.
Things took a turn for the dangerous at Lady Gaga’s Thursday evening Enigma performance when she a brought a fan onstage to dance with her. At one moment, the fan hoisted Gaga into his arms, and then the two fell offstage into the crowd below. And yes, it was all captured on camera.
Within minutes of tumbling off the stage, Lady Gaga was helped back up by security and returned to her performance, choreography and all. “We fell into each other’s arms,” she joked minutes later while playing the piano. “We’re like Rose and Jack in the Titanic.” Watch the video here.
But Lady Gaga’s best quip about the accident came after she headed to the hospital. On Instagram, the singer revealed that she had to get X-rays of almost all of her body following her fall.
This being Lady Gaga, she made her prognosis sound upbeat—and hilarious. She shared a shot of her hand’s x-ray, giving her followers the “okay” symbol. Her caption was nothing short of genius: “Just Dance. Gonna be ok👌,” she wrote.
Fans filled the comments section with supportive messages for the singer. “Love you funny, morbid Queen,” one wrote. “Queen of falling and getting back up 👑,” another said. No lie detected.
Of course, falling off of the stage wasn’t all jokes in reality. On Friday the Oscar winner shared an Instagram story from her friend’s bachelorette dinner. In it she said that she’s “in a lot of pain” following the accident.
Here’s hoping that Lady Gaga doesn’t have too long of a recovery ahead of her following her fall. Lesson learned: Dancing onstage with fans is a recipe for a bad romance.
