Balancing act: Fashion slave Lady Gaga nearly falls off her NINE-inch heels in Istanbul

Always a slave to fashion, 5ft1in Lady Gaga nearly fell off her 9-inch platform pumps outside her Istanbul hotel in Turkey Tuesday.

After exiting her car, the 28-year-old pop diva wobbled and teetered on the outrageous white Mary-Jane heels, even with an escort.

Luckily, a second man swooped in to help steady the five-time Grammy winner so she could journey up a staircase.

Lady Gaga - born Stefani Germanotta - flaunted her back and tattooed thighs in a beige fringed dress featuring revealing side-slits.

Mother Monster donned a short platinum bob wig and soft subtle make-up.

That night the Do What U Want hitmaker performed at the Istanbul Technical University Stadium where she said I love you ('Sizi seviyorum') to her Turkish little monsters.

'I travel all over the world. Believe me, it is really hard to be gay,' she said onstage, according to the Daily Sabah.

'Be proud of yourself, it is no matter what you are. He (God) loves all of you.'

On Wednesday, Gaga landed in Greece and emerged from her private plane clad in a long wavy wig, silver bra, and sheer mini-skirt.

The Applause singer will next take her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball to the Olympic Stadium in Athens on Friday.

Interscope Records will finally drop her album of jazz standards with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek, on September 23.

According to Page Six, the 88-year-old music legend has called the outlandish songstress 'one of the best jazz singers I ever heard.'

Not seen with Lady Gaga were her two loves - French Bulldog Asia and her boyfriend of three years, Taylor Kinney, who returns on NBC's Chicago Fire this Tuesday.
