Meat Loaf's Video Message

'I DID NOT PASS OUT'

Meat Loaf
has recorded a brand new video message to let everyone know his health is FINE -- insisting he DID NOT pass out at a balloon festival in NJ this weekend ... despite photos showing the singer sprawled out on the grass while hooked up to an oxygen tank.

In the clip, Mr. Loaf admits his asthma was "bothering me a little bit" ... and points out "the heat index was at 106" ... but insists he only took a "little bit of oxygen" to alleviate his breathing problems so he could attend a meet and greet later that day.

Meat adds, "The brilliant thing is Pedialyte ... Pedialyte will get you through anything."

FYI -- Pedialyte is an "oral rehydration solution" for kids ... often consumed by children suffering from bouts of diarrhea and vomiting.

As TMZ previously reported, Meat had fainted on-stage at a concert just a few days before the balloon festival ... and blamed the incident on his asthma.

Meat has another 3 shows scheduled for this weekend ... hopefully, he's stocked up on the Pedialyte.

Meatloaf...dude...it's ok to pass out. You're acting life your c*ck is like half an inch long and it popped out on stage. It's really not a big deal to pass out. Charlie Sheen does it all the time after week-long coke binges. It's actually in style these days.

Is Meat Loaf aware that we saw the video of him passing out? What's he all upset about?

First off if it's hot don't wear Black wear white. It's cooler, and don't absorb the sun as muck. Plus drink lots of water, have a ice cooler on stage. Also he's done this in the 70's passing out after shows cause it wore him out. So maybe, just maybe, it's time to cut the show times down. Heck maybe even go back on the diet/working out like he was on in the 90's, & then he might be able to tour better. Age can play a major factor on stage, & he pushes himself way to much. Don't need ML having a stroke, heartattack, or even dieing on stage. Still not cool.

wow    

Hope he's alright because I really like him and his music. Summer is too hot right now. He should wait until fall to perform outdoors.

someone should tell Meatloaf not to wear a suit in 106* weather and he might not "not pass out" so often.
