Lady Gaga Helps Fallen Photographer in True “Mother Monster” Moment

by Carmella D'Acquisto

In a move that could have won “the sweetest gesture” award, Lady Gaga ran to the aid of a photographer on the red carpet during the 95th annual Academy Awards. Captured on a viral clip, Lady Gaga was walking the carpet before the ceremony when she heard a thud and concerned gasps from the audience. 

The Oscar-nominee turned around and rushed back to help the fallen photographer, who was just getting back on his feet when she arrived. In true “mother monster” fashion, she helped him regain his composure before continuing down the carpet in her stunning sheer Versace gown. 

As the tweet circulated, fans praised the singer and affectionately reaffirmed that she is, indeed, “mother.” 




Gaga, who wasn’t scheduled to perform during the ceremony, showed up to the red carpet with BloodPop, the co-writer of the nominated song, Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick.

The singer ended up giving a surprise performance of the song completely bare-faced, with ripped jeans, a t-shirt, and a pair of black Chucks.

Before she jumped into the song she gave a shout-out to BloodPop and explained that the song was deeply personal and that “we all need each other, we need a lot of love to walk through this life.”
