LADY GAGA has been ordered to take a month off work, after almost collapsing onstage during a recent show in Georgia.
The singer, real name Stefani Germanotta, has been globe-trotting in recent months, promoting her album The Fame, and her jet-setting lifestyle has taken its toll on the Just Dance hitmaker - she had a terrifying health scare during a gig in Atlanta earlier this month (Apr09).
Record company bosses are worried for the workaholic star - and have told her to take August (09) off work to relax and recuperate, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
A source tells the publication “Stefani has been working relentlessly since last summer. She has criss-crossed the globe on numerous occasions promoting her album... and the pressure has now started to get to her.
“At a recent show in Atlanta she nearly collapsed on stage the day after a particularly wild night out. Her management have spotted the warning signs and do not want her going off the rails.
“They’ve scrapped all her commitments in August to give her time to get her head straight.”
