Lady Gaga is used to fending off those hermaphrodite rumors.
Exhaustion rumors, though? That's a different thing altogether.
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.
