There’s nothing that Lady Gaga won’t do, but really — is there anything she won’t do? The ‘Art Pop’ singer willingly let a woman puke all over her during her SXSW performance last night. Click to see the insane video!
File this one under gross-out moments! While Lady Gaga was performing her hit song “Swine” at the SXSW festival on Thursday, March 13, she got covered in vomit by a performance artist, Millie Brown, on stage. Gaga, you’re giving Miley a run for her money!
‘Vomit Painter’ Throws Up on Lady Gaga During SXSW Performance
Lady Gaga is no stranger to wacky performances, but last night’s display at SXSW took the cake — and then threw it right back up.
The pop star had “performance artist” — is that what they call this? — Millie Brown, 27, join her up on stage, while she belted out “Swine” from her latest album, Artpop, at the Doritos Bold Stage arena. But music isn’t all that was belted out.
Millie, who has been “vomit painting” her signature Jackson Pollock-style, canvas masterpieces since 2005 and has been recognized by Ripley’s Believe it or Not, stood at the front of the stage, chugging a bottle filled with a neon green drink, which is colored milk. Midway through the song, she walked right up to Gaga at the drums, stuck her fingers down her throat and puked up the green milk. All. Over. Gaga.
Gaga, who was wearing a white apron, which served as Millie’s canvas for her unique display of “creative rebellion,” kept on drumming and singing as she quickly became completely covered in green, milky vomit.
Things only got more interesting from there. Gaga stood up and started head-banging her dreadlocks and then proceeded to get up on a mechanic swine with the girl, and as she sang out, “Swiiiiinnneeeee, swiiiiineeee,” she got pretty up close and personal with Millie who continued to drink more colored milk, this time bright blue.
The stunned audience then watched Gaga lay back, as she was spit up on all over again.
This isn’t the first time the two have worked together. Millie, whose paintings sell for thousands of dollars, made an appearance in the “Exorcist Interlude” music video, vomiting all over Gaga’s white dress, during her Monsters Ball tour.
Did Gaga Go Too Far?
Earlier this year, HollywoodLife.com reported that Gaga told Harper’s Bazaar about her former battle with an eating disorder, but stated that she no longer was struggling was the illness.
“I am better with food. I don’t have an eating disorder anymore. I’m also better at not letting people take advantage of me….I should be around people who cherish my talents, my health, my time. I’m not a pawn for anyone’s future business. I’m an artist,” she told the magazine in early February of this year.
We applaud Gaga for being so honest about her widespread illness, but we’re not so sure about this puke-on-stage business.
