Lady GaGa is going to finish every concert she puts on, even if it kills her. The "Telephone" singer, who crumpled to the floor and had to lie down during the last song for one of her recent sold-out performances New Zealand, thinks the shows must go on -- no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
Speaking on an Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O, she said: "I was so jet-lagged. 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."
The 23-year-old star, who was forced to cancel several shows in January because she was suffering from exhaustion, insisted that she'd since had a rest and felt "completely rejuvenated and excited."
However, according to those close to the singer, the exhausted hitmaker is reportedly on the verge of a breakdown because of her hectic schedule. A source told People magazine: "She's on the verge of tipping. She's only human."
Gaga is currently in the middle of a world tour, which will see her perform 100 shows in 10 months by the time she finishes in September.
