After that, Gaga dedicated her next selection to Meredith. But she is only halfway through her hit “Paparazzi,” when she stops the show again. Gaga’s mind was obviously still on Meredith, as she instructed her crew, “Make sure to get that girl a backstage pass!” The rest of the Uncasville concert passed off without further incident. But her little monsters were hugely impressed that Gaga had taken the time to pay close attention to one of their number in trouble. And one Twitter user in the crowd had captured the episode on camera. When they uploaded the video that same night, it spread like wildfire across the internet.
The fan-shot footage came with a caption. It 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!” The tweet quickly racked up 2,858 retweets and 7,821 likes. And then, four days later, the focus of Gaga’s attention that night commented on the post and made herself known to the world.
