Cellphone footage has emerged of the moment pop artist Lady Gaga stopped a show to comfort a fan who had been struck in the face and required medical help.
Gaga was performing in Connecticut as part of her Joanne World Tour on Saturday night (local time) when it is believed a stray limb struck the fan in the face, leaving her bleeding.
Gaga was speaking to the crowd when she noticed the woman's injury, and immediately leapt into action.
"Are you all right? Do you need some extra help? Yeah? Okay, so do you need a paramedic? They're on their way? Okay," Gaga can be heard saying to the distressed woman.
"I'm so sorry that you got hit in the face and that you're bleeding," she added, to audible empathy from her fellow audience members.
After trying to calm the woman and establishing her name, the 'Alejandro' hitmaker waited until paramedics offered medical assistance before continuing with her performance.
"Okay, 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," she said.
Gaga then launched into a soulful rendition of hit single 'Paparazzi', pausing mid-song to request the injured woman would be given a backstage pass for a future concert.
