Lady Gaga Defends Passing Out on Stage

Lady Gaga came under fire recently after she appeared to have passed out during one of her concerts in New Zealand. But she's broken her silence on the issue, blaming it on all the traveling she's been doing for her tour.

"I was so jet lagged," she told an Australian radio show. "I passed out about three times on stage that night but I got myself to the floor. I'd rather die on stage than walk off because I was going to pass out."

Despite the explanation, many worry that Gaga has become overworked and undernourished in recent months. She looks drastically thinner than she did at the start of her career, and has been busier than ever. A source close to her tells People, "She's on the verge of tipping," says the source. "She's only human."

But in true Gaga form, her fatigue hasn't stopped her one bit. She told reporters she was feeling "completely rejuvenated and excited."

We suppose that's the price A-list stars pay for beig so famous! But it does worry us that more and more stars are having to check into rehab facilities for "exhaustion."

We hope after this world tour, Gaga gives herself a little break!
