Lady Gaga Broke Her Hip, But ‘Nobody Knew’


Lady Gaga previously revealed that she suffered from hip injury but actually she was having a labral tear.  It was worse than she expected, she said, “My injury was actually a lot worse than just a labral tear.  I had broken my hip. Nobody knew, and I haven’t even told the fans yet. But when we got all the MRIs finished before I went to surgery there were giant craters, a hole in my hip the size of a quarter, and the cartilage was just hanging out the other side of my hip. I had a tear on the inside of my joint and a huge breakage. The surgeon told me that if I had done another show I might have needed a full hip replacement. I would have been out at least a year, maybe longer.”


Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, expressed that she had a hard time in recovering from the surgery.  She said, “I had six months to beef up my brain and my body.  I got to put a giant white or black sheet of paint over my whole canvas and I got to review ARTPOP again. I was given the time to really be creative because it’s a gazing process, it really is. I have to gaze into the work for long periods of time for it to be good.”
