Lady Gaga suffered a concussion while performing in New Zealand, after she was hit in the head with a pole by a crew member, the New York Post reported.

She was performing her song "Judas" at the time, during the last of three shows in Auckland. She is currently in the middle of her "Born This Way Ball" world tour.

According to Rolling Stone, the singer said "I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion but don't you worry I will finish this show."

Rolling Stone cited her fan site Gagamedia.net which reported the singer continued the show, after leaving the stage briefly, and sang another 16 songs. She "even met some fans backstage."

Tara Savelo, her makeup artist later confirmed on Twitter she was doing fine:

"Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay.She wants u to know she loves u. I'm taking care of her.cant believe she finished the show."

The incident follow what has been a rocky leg of the tour in Asia, with the canceling of her show in Indonesia earlier this month.

Her June 3 Jakarta had already sold out 52,000 tickets but police were concerned that they could not guarantee security at the concert after threats from Islamic groups.
