After that, Gaga dedicates her next song to Meredith. But she is only halfway through her hit “Paparazzi” when she stops the show again. And Gaga’s mind is obviously still on Meredith, as she instructs her crew, “Make sure to get that girl a backstage pass!” Meanwhile, one Twitter user in the crowd had captured the whole episode on camera. And when they uploaded the video that same night, it spread like wildfire across the internet.
The fan-shot footage also came with a caption that read, “A fan was hit in the face [and] started bleeding during tonight’s show, so Lady Gaga stopped the show to make sure [the fan] was fine [and] gave her a backstage pass!” And the tweet itself would eventually rack up 2,858 retweets and 7,821 likes. Four days after the video was posted, however, the focus of Gaga’s attention that night commented on the tweet and made herself known to the world.
