Lady Gaga passed on the opportunity to perform her 2020 hit, “Rain on me” while the sky opened up on her Saturday night performance in South Florida and the entertainer would later explain that she felt forced to cut the show short due to the “dangerous” weather conditions.
“We really tried to finish the show tonight in Miami, but we couldn’t, because even when the rains sort of stopped there was lightning that was striking right down to the ground so close to us,” the 36-year-old singer said in an emotional Instagram post after the show.
“I know that for a really long time I’ve always wanted to be that hardcore bad b–ch,” she said while trying to fight back tears. “But what I really want is to also be responsible and loving, and I don’t know what I would do if anything happened to anybody in the audience, or to any member of my crew, my band, my dancers.”
“I’m sorry that we didn’t get to – you know – do the epic performance of “Rain on me” in the rain,” she said. “But what’s more worth it to me is life.”

Fans posted clips on social media from the Chromatica Ball where Lady Gaga apologized to her fans for canceling the show midway through.
“I’m sorry that we can’t finish, but I don’t want to put your life in danger, and I don’t want to put our life in danger,” she told the crowd of adoring fans. “Thank you for coming to the show.”

In a separate Instagram post, the New Jersey native offered another apology to her fans.
“I’m sorry i couldn’t finish the show it was too dangerous the lightening was being unpredictable and changing moment by moment,” she wrote. “Look, for years some of you have called me ‘mother monster,’ in my heart I knew it was better to keep you safe. Thank you for believing in me.”

“OF COURSE, I wanted to sing rain on me for you in the rain,” she lamented.
“‘I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive,'” she quoted her own lyrical premonition.
“I guess somehow I knew this moment would happen and I am so grateful to you, my dancers, my band the whole crew everyone my family and friends,” she continued. “Safety first. Love you.”
“Thank you for the flowers and the cheers and for understanding. Life matters,” she concluded.
