LADY Gaga's make-up artist is looking after the pop star after she was hit in the head by a metal pole and concussed during her last New Zealand show.

The Born This Way singer was performing the song Judas about halfway through her Vector Arena show when a large metal pole fell and knocked her on top of the head.

She promised fans the show would go on - and she kept going, for another 16 songs.

TMZ.com reported the singer as saying: "I want to apologise. I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion. But don't you worry, I will finish this show."

Video footage of the incident shows her reeling and staggering from the top of a castle while holding a fake machine gun.

After the concert, Gaga's make-up artist Tara Savelo tweeted to say she was okay but couldn't believe she continued performing.

"Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay. She wants u to know she loves u. I'm taking care of her.cant believe she finished the show," she wrote on Twitter.

Gaga performed three New Zealand shows and is now heading to Australia.
