Lady's Gaga's Hip Injury Was Worse Than Announced

The injury that knocked Lady Gaga off the road earlier this year was worse than she let on. Rather than a "minor tear" in a muscle, she actually had a broken hip!

The Mother Monster tells Women's Wear Daily that she went in for an exam after feeling pain back in February and got the bad news from doctors -- but decided not to tell the whole truth to fans. She says, "When we got all the MRIs finished before I went to surgery, there were giant craters, a hole in my hip the size of a quarter, and the cartilage was just hanging out the other side of my hip. I had a tear on the inside of my joint and a huge breakage. The surgeon told me that if I had done another show, I might have needed a full hip replacement. I would have been out at least a year, maybe longer.”
