She nearly collapsed on stage in March and had to cancel several shows earlier this year citing exhaustion. Her latest health scare - lupus - is even more alarming.

Is Lady Gaga on the verge of a physical breakdown?

"I'm very connected to my aunt, Joanne, who died of lupus," the pop star tells The Times of London, adding that she's been tested. "It's a very personal thing."

Gaga did not elaborate, but doesn't "want anyone to be worried" about the disease, in which the immune system attacks the body and which can be genetic.

"I have heart palpitations and things. But it's okay. It's just from fatigue and other things," the singer, who said she fainted during her New Zealand concert.

Hey, at least the amputated leg rumors are false ... right?

Her most recent health emergency: "The other day," Gaga said.

In Tokyo, where she was "having trouble breathing," the accused Christina Aguilera copycat was fine after receiving "a little oxygen" and went back on stage.

"I was okay," she says, adding: "I don't want anyone to worry."

Too late, girl. Too late.

As for buzz about her thin body, Gaga insists she doesn't "have an eating problem," but has a busy schedule that doesn't allow "very much time to eat."

Is that not an eating problem then? "I really don't do drugs. I don't touch cocaine any more. I don't smoke," she says. "I do take care of myself."

But much like the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors, don't expect a break anytime soon. She's been touring so relentlessly, it's not even funny.

"People say I should take a break," says the singer. "But I'm like, 'Why should I take a break? What do you want me to do? Go on vacation?"

Lady Gaga is used to fending off those hermaphrodite rumors.

Exhaustion rumors, though? That's a different thing altogether.

Sad Gaga

Days after crumpling to the floor in the midst of a New Zealand concert, Lady Gaga explained her alarming performance simply: "I was so jet lagged," she said.

She told the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O that she's hurting, and "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."

Are the pressures of fame taking a toll on Lady Gaga?

This isn't the first time that Gaga's whirlwind rise to superstardom has taken its toll. Back in January, she was forced to cancel several shows, citing exhaustion.

One source fears that the pop star is suffering from the stress of her staggering fame: "She's on the verge of tipping," says the source. "She's only human."

Not only human, but both a man and a woman, we heard!

Still, the singer insisted that she's feeling "completely rejuvenated and excited." We're psyched, because that means more Lady Gaga pictures like these.

The incomparable Lady Gaga was forced to cancel a concert in West Lafayette, Ind., at the last minute Thursday night after falling ill and being advised to rest.

The cancellation was announced after the two opening acts had already performed, disappointing a sold-out crowd at Purdue University's Elliott Hall of Music.

It was no joke, though. Lady Gaga became dizzy and was having trouble breathing an hour before the show - a result of exhaustion and dehydration, she said.

"Can't apologize enough for how sorry I am. I could hear my fans cheering from my dressing room. I begged everyone to let me go onstage," Gaga Tweeted.

"My stage has complicated mechanical elements, everyone was concerned I'd be in danger during the show, since I had passed out earlier. I am devastated."

Lady Gaga had to cancel a show. That's gotta be killing her.

Just to further clear things up, she stated: "I have performed with the flu, a cold, strep throat: I would never cancel a show just based on mere discomfort."

"I hope you can forgive me,. I love my little monsters more than anything, you are everything to me. I will make-up the performance on January 26."

It truly must have taken something to knock this dynamic performer out, and it had to eat away at her inside. She's like the Kevin Garnett of music.

However, Gaga will rally in time for today's appearance on Oprah, her rep tells E! News. It's a good thing, too - Winfrey is PUMPED about the interview.

She wrote on Twitter: "Just saw Avatar. WOWEE KAZOWEE!! Interviewing James Cameron tomorrow and LADY GAGA. Can't sleep. So excited!"

Well summated, O.
