As Lady Gaga continues to recuperate from hip surgery, she is reportedly celebrating her 27th birthday today with a tea party of sorts. According to the Sun, she is hosting a “Mad Hatter Party,” because the star isn’t able to drink alcohol yet. She is still on painkillers though, which might explain the whole “Mad Hatter” thing. It would be so very Gaga if a caterpillar sitting on a giant mushroom administered her painkillers via hookah.

In honor of Gaga’s recuperation, we thought it would be fun to examine other musicians who have famously had to take a little time off.

Weezer mastermind Rivers Cuomo was born with one of his legs almost two inches shorter than the other. After the success of his band’s debut in 1994, Cuomo underwent a procedure to correct the difference. While he recuperated he worked on the songs that would become what is arguably Weezer’s masterpiece, their second album, “Pinkerton.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Tim Mosenfelder/Getty Images)
