    Lady Gaga lives to perform, so needless to say, the Mother Monster was devastated when she broke her hip and canceled her 2013 winter tour to have surgery and to heal.

    She feared her live performance and stage career were dunzo.

    "I think the fear was more before (surgery) that I would never be able to do this again. I was nervous, sure. I mean, when the tour ended, I love my fans more than anything, I love making music and I surely love being a star for everyone, but I more love being an entertainer," Gaga told the BBC.

    She worked hard to recover, despite it being hard. "I was really good at rehab," she said. "I really focused and I worked really hard. Even when I was in my wheelchair, sitting at home, I wanted to dance, I wanted to perform, I wanted to sing, I wanted to go out and write music, I wanted to go see things for inspiration, so yeah, they had to kind of strap me down a bit, but it was good for me, it was really good for me. I needed that; sometimes God forces you to stop."

    Have you seen Lady Gaga live? If so, how was she?
