Lady Gaga Posts Pic of Her Concert, Except It Wasn’t from Her Show

Lady Gaga, known for her often outrageous stunts, probably didn’t plan this one. On Saturday she posted a picture on Instagram of what was supposed to be her outdoor show in Quebec.

“Those little dots are fans, and that’s our stage and lights beaming from the center. Unreal 90,000 ppl showed up! What a magical night #artraveQuebec”

Alas, she had the right venue, just the wrong performer and the wrong year. It turns out it wasn’t her show at all. As the folks at GossipCop point out, the photo she posted was actually from a 2011 Metallica concert at the same venue.

Social media being social media, her error went viral faster than, well, a Lady Gaga photo on Instagram.

She then headed to Twitter to correct the record and battle those claiming she did it to make her event look larger than it actually was.

But hey, why not use the opportunity to take a cheap shot at her nemesis Madonna: “Maybe the Madonna fans on your site can use a microscope to count the fans.”

Ouch.
