A couple of things this story proves: first, Lady Gaga does, in fact, have a poker face. And 2nd, she does not use an invisible forcefield at her concerts to protect her from being hit with flying objects.
In recent months, there was a conspiracy theory floating around social media that Lady Gaga's Chromatica Ball tour stage design included an invisible forcefield to protect her.
However, over the weekend, the Chromatica Ball tour made a stop in Toronto and many fans posted videos from the show of the singer getting hit in the head by a flying object while she was performing “Hold My Hand” from the “Top Gun: Maverick” soundtrack.
Like a total professional, the pop singer continued on with the song as if nothing happened.
Many fans flocked to the comments section to share their distain for anyone who would throw anything at an artist, but other internet warriors may have come up with a strange reason for the incident.
It appears the latest trend of throwing stuffed toys on stage may be linked to a new concert tradition meant to show appreciation for the performing artist.
Sleuthing social media users apparently tracked down the fan in attendance who tossed the plushie, which turned out to be a stuffed "Dr. Simi" doll.
This required a little research, but, Dr. Simi is a beloved Mexican symbol and the mascot of the Mexican pharmacy chain Farmacias Similares.
As fan accounts pointed out how throwing anything on stage, even gifts, could be a fire hazard, the responded on Twitter explaining that he tried not to throw it too far, and had no intention of hitting the singer (BELOW).
