A Lady Gaga fan at a recent concert suffered a blow to the face when the crowd started fighting over a rose the singer had thrown. Gaga noticed and immediately stopped her show to help out the injured fan. The exchange was captured in a fan-recorded video that was tweeted out a few days later.
“I just looked over and I saw,” Mother Monster said onstage at her Connecticut show. “Are you alright? Do you need some extra help? Yeah? OK, so do you need a paramedic? They’re on their way? OK.”
“Meredith,” the singer continued. “I’m so sorry that you got hit in the face and that you’re bleeding.” The crowd let out a collective “aww” at the news, while others applauded Gaga’s sincere reaction to the injured fan.
“We’re going to make sure that you’re OK, alright?” she continued, as Meredith was ushered away by medics. “OK, I think she’s going to go off now to see the doctors. What we all need to remember is that there are things more important than show business.”
“So, we’ll do this one for Meredith, alright?” she added, before singing an a cappella version of “Paparazzi.”
Gaga added in between verses, “Make sure to give that girl a backstage pass, too.”

Also during that show, Gaga read a fan latter that was thrown onto the stage for her.
“You made me feel like it was OK to be myself, love handles and all,” Gaga read from the letter, adding “Girl, love handles are in” to cheers from the crowd.
“You taught me I was born this way, and self-love and positivity are a good thing,” Gaga continued. “You brought the best people into my life. I felt alone for years, but now I’ve found home within this community we’ve made for one another.”
