Lady Gaga has reportedly received some friendly advice from A-Rod.
Alex Rodriguez is rumored to have given the pop star a pep talk prior to undergoing hip surgery on Wednesday. The baseball star is currently recovering from a similar procedure.
According to ANI, sources said Lady Gaga and A-Rod showed up around the same time at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery. The the singer and the athlete are under the care of Dr. Bryan Kelly.
Although Gaga was reportedly nervous about having hip surgery, Rodriguez sat down with the pop star for a quick chat. It’s unclear what A-Rod said to Gaga during their conversation, but sources say he was able to calm her nerves prior to going under the knife.
The New York Daily News explains that doctors expect Lady Gaga to recover completely from the procedure. However, it’s currently unknown when she will be able to perform live again. The singer’s manager remarked that she will require “strict downtime” in order to heal.
The surgery essentially threw a wrench into Lady Gaga’s recent tour. While A-Rod may have been able to calm her nerves about the surgery, the reported $30 million in refunds she will have to dish out is probably still weighing on her mind.
Alex Rodriguez is expected to be down for the count until midseason. The baseball player had hip surgery back in January.
A-Rod recently said of his recovery:
“I am conducting two rehab sessions each and every day in an effort to get back on the field and rejoin my Yankees teammates. I think we have a great team, and I want to be a part of it.”
What do you think about Lady Gaga receiving a pep talk from A-Rod? Are you disappointed that the singer has been forced to cancel so many of her tour dates?
