Lady Gaga's final concert for her epic Chromatica Ball tour might have been cut short due to a thunderstorm, but a hilarious video is proving to be a silver lining and the drag queen involved is speaking out about the now-viral clip.

When the concert, held at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, had to end early, a drag queen and Lady Gaga impersonator who NBC News identified as Penelopy Jean was escorted out by fans and the pop icon's own security team.

"I'm a drag queen. I'm a drag queen," she can be heard saying in the clip that has been viewed nearly 750,000 times.

Speaking with NBC News, Jean, who is from Brazil and has been impersonating the "Rain On Me" singer for a decade, said fans who attended the sold-out show were "coming up to me for photos, because I'm in drag."

"It's totally normal. It wasn't until the end of the show that the crowds got huge," Jean added. "I was leaving with my friends, and when I turned around, I saw six security guards with me. I lost my friends, and I started to panic. I'm sure this is how Gaga feels all the time."

Despite telling Gaga's security guards and fans that she isn't Gaga, Jean said the crowd continued to follow her out of the stadium. She added that she hopes the singer sees the viral clip.

"I think she will laugh a little, and I think in this situation she would've said the same thing to the crowd," Jean said.
