Lady Gaga Hospitalized for Altitude Sickness in Denver: Report

Lady Gaga performed in the Mile High City on Wednesday, but was briefly hospitalized afterward due to altitude sickness.

The pop singer, famous for megahits like "Just Dance," "Bad Romance," and "Applause," appeared to be in good spirits despite her ailment, taking to Instagram with a picture of her shiny new oxygen mask, TheDenverChannel.com reported.

"Altitude Sickness is no Joke!" she captioned her photo, adding a cheeky, not-so-subtle drug reference: #hitThatHospitalS***.

Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous and often avant garde outfits — including a dress made of raw meat and a hairdo that incorporated a full-sized telephone — and several commentators, including People magazine, noted that the mask could have easily been a stage prop of hers.

Sitting at 5,280 feet above sea level, altitude sickness is common among Denver's visitors.

Oxygen is less plentiful up where the air is thinner, and a lack of it can be hard on those used to getting more with each breath. Because of this, it's not uncommon for athletes to train in the Rocky Mountain states, as the tougher conditions force them to toughen themselves up. Moreover, some of the toughest ultra-marathons on earth are run in the Rockies.

The next stop on Lady Gaga's artRave tour, Seattle, is expected to remain on schedule for this Friday. Her new duet album with Tony Bennett is expected September 23.
