NEW YORK (AP) — Lady Gaga is giving the gory details about her hip surgery that put her out of commission in February. She tells Women’s Wear Daily she had broken her hip, not just torn it. In her words, the MRIs before surgery showed “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.
” Her surgeon told her if she had done another show, she would have needed a full hip replacement and would be out for an entire year, maybe longer.
Lady Gaga says the upshot of not being able to perform is that she could devote more effort into her upcoming album, “ARTPOP.”
