Lady Gaga shows off bruises after pole mishap

Lady Gaga is sporting black eyes and a bruised face after a dancer accidentally hit her on the head with a pole during a concert in New Zealand on Sunday (10Jun12).

The Poker Face hitmaker suffered a concussion but refused to stop her Born This Way Ball show in Auckland, performing a further 16 songs to finish up her set.

Now Gaga has taken to Twitter.com for the first time since the accident to give fans an update on her recovery.

Posting a photo of her bruised and swollen face on Tuesday (12Jun12), the pop star told followers, "Thank you so much for all the thoughtful messages. I feel a bit woozy but a little better every day.

"Very happy to be in beautiful Australia. Emerging from hours of sleep. Still remiss if I should go outside, with this clonker I may be of questionable styling."
