Lady Gaga collapsed just before her concert last night at Purdue University, Indiana. Her rep issued this statement:
"Due to exhaustion and dehydration, Lady Gaga collapsed and passed out before her show tonight in West Lafayette, IN. Her physician has advised her to take a few days off to rest"
The announcement was made after her two opening acts had finished. Although an ambulance arrived to take her to the hospital, she refused and instead opted for being treated on her bus.
Those who were at the concert last night have the choice of a refund or to attend the rescheduled show which takes place January 26.
Call her a crazy fashionista, but Lady Gaga truly loves and appreciates her fans. She took to Twitter to apologize (read from the bottom up):
I hope you can forgive me. I love my little monsters more than anything, you are everything to me. I will make-up the performance on Jan 26
I am so devastated. I have performed with the flu, a cold, strep throat: I would never cancel a show just based on discomfort.
My stage has complicated mechanical elements,everyone was concerned I'd be in danger during the 2hr show, since I had passed out earlier.can't apologize enough for how sorry I am. I could hear my fans cheering from my dressing room, I begged everyone to let me go onstage
Paramedics came to take care of me, and told me my heart-rate was irregular- a result of exhaustion and dehydration.
I've been crying for hours, I feel like I let my fans down 2nite. An hour before the show, I was feeling dizzy and having trouble breathing
