Lady Gaga will take a month off from work because she is stressed.
The 'Poker Face' singer - real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta - will reportedly take a break from her gruelling work schedule to recuperate because bosses at her record label fear she will burn out.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Lady Gaga has been working relentlessly since last summer. She has criss-crossed the globe on numerous occasions promoting her album 'The Fame' and the pressure has now started to get to her.
"Her management have spotted the warning signs and do not want her going off the rails. They've scrapped all her commitments in August to give her time to get her head straight."
It is claimed the 23-year-old beauty - who is known for her party lifestyle - has been getting suffering from exhaustion over recent weeks.
The source explained: "At a recent show in Atlanta, US, she nearly collapsed on stage the day after a particularly wild night out."
Earlier this month, Lady Gaga was forced to cancel a string of concerts in America because she had a fever.
In a posting on her blog, she wrote: "I am so terribly sad about the postponed performances... I have had a high fever and some crazy virus for days, and I'm still sick.
"After weeks of not a day off my schedule, my team and doctor felt it imperative that I sleep for a few days."
