Lady Gaga Calls Vomit Performance ‘Art In Its Purest Form’


In defense to her vomit performance, controversial icon Lady Gaga explained the act was “art in its purest form.”

Paparazzi hit maker was criticized for glamorizing eating disorder bulimia on stage when a so-called ‘vomit artist’ Millie Brown appeared and vomited green liquid all over the singer. The act happened at South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, earlier in March.

Her controversial act drew many comments, such as her colleagues Demi Lovato who said that the show could encourage young people to follow her example.

Gaga replied to critics, opening up to America’s Today show, saying, “I guess we weren’t completely surprised (about the controversy). Millie and I know that not everybody’s going to love that performance… But we both really believe in artistic expression and strong identities and I support her and what she does…. For us, that performance was art in its purest form. But we totally understand that some people won’t be into it… Did we want the controversy? I suppose it doesn’t matter.”

She added, “We don’t make things for any intention in particular other than in the spirit of entertaining the crowd and creating something that is really for the moment. It wasn’t meant for the Today show. It was meant for a club performance in Austin, and we had a great time.”

Her answer to a question about regretting decisions she made, she said, “I feel like everything happens for a reason. I think you learn every time there’s a challenge in your life. I wouldn’t want my fans to have any regrets in their own lives, so I would say no.”
