Lady Gaga made lots of news over the weekend. Aside from giving what many considered an incredible keynote address at the SXSW festival, she also performed. And while the speech was her finale, her Thursday night performance is getting as much – if not more – attention.
Why? Gaga got puked on. On purpose. During her performance of “Swine,” Gaga invited ‘vomit painter’ Millie Brown on stage. Brown drank a bottle of green liquid and then stuck her fingers down her throat so she could regurg the substance onto Gaga as she played drums.
Mother Monster and Brown then straddled a mechanical pig (which had a keyboard for Gaga to play) and after she finished performing on the pig, Brown then began…um…”painting” Gaga with black liquid. The concert was held to celebrate her Born This Way Foundation with fans only earning entry by completing a Doritos Bold Mission. During another – and far less controversial – performance of the song, “Dope,” Gaga offered a remark that no one could disagree with: “It’s so much easier to be yourself than it is to be somebody else. Because then you have to pretend to be someone else and like things that you don’t like and do stuff that you don’t want to do.”
