Lady Gaga restores harmony to D.C.'s Little Monster universe

By Sarah Anne Hughes

Whether you love Lady Gaga or can't stand her, this video of the pop star stopping an alleged fight at her D.C. show last night is pretty awesome. In the footage, Gaga is performing the song "Monster" when she suddenly says, "Stop the music." The music fades and the lights go black as she sternly commands: "Stop fighting. Do not fight at this show." The crowd goes wild.

Over at Click Track, Chris Richards has a review of Gaga's show at Verizon Center, complete with pictures. Please continue to tweet your fan photos to @washingtonpost or send them to our summer concert gallery. And check out our video of some of the outrageous fan looks from the show last night.

Does anyone who attended the show remember the incident that stopped the music? Was Gaga's cease-fighting command as cool as it seems on video? Tell us in the comments section.

I was at the show last night, and my friends and I were so amazed by the entire thing that we'd been wondering whether it was just part of the show. It was definitely one of the more interesting candid moments. I'm also very impressed by how quick the dancers and crew responded to her command (hence why we were wondering whether it was part of the "monster ball-themed" act). It was certainly a nice moment in the middle of an amazing show, and knowing from first-hand experience how annoying and aggressive it can be dealing with other people on the floor at a concert - it was very cool of her to stop the fight.

If you want the full story check out the facebook page of Farrah Malekzadeh. She is the girl who was attacked. The red duct tape girl.

I was there and I too wondered if it was part of the show. I don't think it was, but it happened really quickly and the music immediately stopped. It was just as cool as it seems.

I think a lot of people were wondering if it was part of the show but it was pretty impressive how she made a point to stop it. People may not agree with all she does but I think she her intentions are right on. She just has the guts to say the things that most of us are thinking.

Ditto to everything said above. It seemed genuine to me. She didn't seem quite sure how to get back into the flow of the show for a second or two.

The video "Telephone" has the movie, "Thema and Louise" twist to it.Ask Ms. GaGa if she'll call the next dress a xenophobian stitched in Universial Peace and go visit the Council of Foreign Affairs.Stand up for what you belive in ! "All Voices Count In America" and so does cultural diversity.Sing ,"Let's Twist Again." The Meat dress ? Does that say dry clean only ? Seriously creative with a message heard !
