A Little Monster's dream turned into a nightmare last night when Lady Gaga invited him onstage to dance during one of her Las Vegas Enigma shows. The fan understandably got a little bit carried away, picked Gaga up for a twirl, then promptly fell off the front of the stage. They tumbled inelegantly down into the crowd together, people obviously filmed the whole thing, and Twitter is now making jokes about him going into witness protection.

Psychological trauma aside, Gaga and the fan (reportedly named Jack) came out of the incident unscathed. After being helped back onstage by security guards, Gaga even offered words of comfort to her accidental attacker.

"Could you promise me something? Could you forgive yourself right now for what just happened?" she told him while sitting at her piano. "It's amazing. We love each other so much we fell off the damn stage. We fell into each other's arms. We're like Jack and Rose from Titanic."

Throughout the rest of the night, Gaga seemed genuinely concerned over Jack's welfare. "If anybody on the internet is mean to you tomorrow about this then I'm going to be very upset with each and every one of them," she told him. Hate to say it, but not every diva would be so generous!
Gaga actually has a history of stage injuries. She broke her hip in Montreal during the Born This Way tour in 2013, underwent major surgery, and was forced out of action for six months.
