Katy Perry Pukes Paint In ‘Prismatic’ Tour — Copying Lady Gaga?

Sat, May 10, 2014 6:17pm EST by 50 Comments

Katy Perry began her ‘Prismatic’ tour in Northern Ireland on May 7, and part of her show is a tape of her puking up — and then playing around with — a whole mess of paint. Is she copying Lady Gaga? Click through to watch it happen!

Oh, Katy Perry. Why? The 29-year-old singer kicked off her Prismatic tour in Belfast in Northern Ireland on May 7, and part of the show features a tape in which you see her sticking her finger in her mouth in an almost sexy way, and then vomiting paint everywhere. Green paint! If you’re getting a sense of déjà vû, you’re not wrong for it — this was Lady Gaga‘s move during her performance at the SXSX Festival on March 13. Is Katy stepping on Lady Gaga’s game once again? And is this something that really begged to be replicated?

Katy Perry Pukes Up Green Paint During ‘Prismatic’ Tour — Did She Copy Lady Gaga?

Lady Gaga was roundly criticized for glorifying bulimia when she brought performance “artist” (not apologizing for those quotes) Millie Brown on stage during her performance of “Swine” at SXWX to chug a bottle of a weird green liquid and then puke it all over her fellow connoisseur of art.

Even Demi Lovato shamed the Artpop singer for what people were calling her “bulimia chic” performance!

Katy Perry Is Being Irresponsible By Glorifying Bulimia

Not only was Katy similarly irresponsible by showing her impressionable young fans that puking is easy fun for everyone, it was also similarly… similar.

This isn’t the first time that Katy has been accused of coping Lady Gaga — and the most recent, memorable time it happened, it was by Lady Gaga herself! She tweeted on May 8 that “It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now,” clearly referring to Katy’s tour which had debuted the day before.

Honestly, this part of Katy’s tour should really be pulled. We’ve always thought of Katy as a positive role model for her young fans, and this seems way out of character for her. We’re sure she didn’t intend to glorify a serious eating disorder, but it’s so important that she respond to these criticisms.

HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Katy’s rep for a statement but has yet to hear back at the time of publishing.

So, HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Is Katy copying Lady Gaga? And is she glorifying bulimia? Let us know!

If anything, Katy is mocking Gaga here and drawing attention to how ridiculous Gaga’s puking performance was. She does NOT copy Gaga; they are both extremely different artists–and they both have said so. They are constantly compared because they are two of the biggest names in pop music but they are not similar really at all. Katy wore green hair before Gaga every did (Katy has had just about every color of the rainbow hair) and Katy is on a mechanical horse because her song is CALLED Dark Horse. Lady Gaga was not the originator of performing with mechanical horses (Kylie Minogue happened to do it first) and therefore does not not own the sole right to use them as a prop. Stop comparing the two artists, and don’t blast Katy for doing things similarly to Gaga when about 95% of Gaga’s stunts have been “inspired” by Madonna.

Wow. The green wig, mechanical horse, seashell bikini and now the vomiting up paint….Katy Perry is the most unoriginal performer out there. She used to look like the boring girl next door…then Gaga showed up and she started to rip her off. Gaga has every right to be pissed off by this cheap copycat.

No, Mitch, Katy’s the fool for being so blatant. Did she really think no one was going to bust her on the vomiting stunt?

“We’ve always thought of Katy Perry as a positive role model for kids.”? LOL what kind of rock have you been hiding under? Her first single that made her famous was about kissing a girl & liking it. Her Teenage Dream album was all about teen sex. The self titled single was basically about an insecure girl giving up her virginity to an older guy “You think i’m pretty without any make up on – We drove to Cali, got drunk on the beach, got a MOTEL & built a fort out of sheets, i’m complete”. California Girls video was borderline porn with laying naked on a cotton candy cloud & cream exploding boobs. Last Friday night she played a 13 YEAR OLD GIRL at a house party who ended up, AGAIN, sleeping with an older man with lyrics about her skinny dipping, having a 3some, having photos taken of it & getting so drunk that she couldn’t remember any of it. Yeah you’re right – absolute positive role model for young kids, if you’re into pedophilia.

And what is your issue with girls kissing girls? Are you saying it is bad?
There is nothing to indicate the guy in Teenage Dream is older.
There is nothing stipulating that her alter ego in TGIF ‘Kathy Beth Terry’ is 13. Rather, she’s stereotypically awkward due to cliched social ideas (braces, turtlenecks). Yes, a teen but not 13!
Okay, so you need to do three things:
1) Stop hating,
2) If you’re going to hate, at least get your facts straight, and
3) Invest your time in spellcheck and perhaps explore some english syntax and punctuation.

Honestly, pop stars weren’t typically dying their hair and dressing like clowns until Lady Gaga popped up. Now, its become the norm. I’m not saying Gaga is the first to do anything! But, you’re in denial if you can’t see her influence. I think it is safe to say everyone is copying Gaga. In reality, Madonna never wore meat. Madonna never performed space. You can’t just put ALL of Lady Gaga’s hard work under Madonna’s name. I applaud Lady Gaga. I think Demi is a side piece that needs to shut her fat ass up, and its good for her too (2 cents)

Honestly it’s becoming sooooo obvious that Katy Perry is completely ripping off Gaga. It’s like….Gaga is actually the artist and originator (in the pop music sense), and I understand Gaga pulled some similar stuff as Madonna….but at least Gaga said Madonna was a reference and didn’t just pay her dust…and at least it was repurposed from stuff that was done decades ago. Katy is outright taking everything Gaga is doing and just making a boring watered down version of it. It’s embarassing, actually. I saw Katy fans on atrl were even admitting that they recognize Katy is “inspired” and “intimidated” by Gaga. I don’t get it. Katy would be fine by herself…no one is saying she is untalented…but she obviously thinks she can take what Gaga is creating and make it better…which to be honest….she hasn’t. At least there was some nuance to what Gaga was doing with the puke and the horse and the green hair and rave theme. Katy latches onto whatever Gaga does and it just makes her look pressed and unintelligent tbh.
