By now you might of heard that Lady Gaga likes to be vomited on, as throw-up specialist Millie Brown tossed her cookies all over the pop singer at this year’s South by Southwest Music Festival.
For one, I didn’t know there was such a thing as a throw-up specialist or a vomit artist, nor did I know that vomit and art could share the same space.
But hey, you learn something new every day and according to Gaga the whole disgusting thing was in the name of self-expression.
“We both really believe in artistic expression and strong identities,” she said during an interview on the Today show.
“I support her and what she does. ARTPOP, my new album, is about bringing art and music together and the spirit of creative rebellion. For us, that performance was art in its purest form. But we totally understand that some people won’t be into it.”
The blonde singer also said she’s not really surprised the performance received so much press and that a lot of people were turned off by it.
“I guess we weren’t completely surprised. Millie and I know that not everybody’s going to love that performance,” said Gaga.
Additionally, the Applause singer said the throw-up stunt was for a very specific audience, and the fact that she didn’t do it on television or in front of children means that people should chill-out a little, and not be so close minded.
And Gaga didn’t deny that the vomiting thing was just to get everyone’s attention.
“Did we want the controversy? I suppose it doesn’t matter,” she stated. “Either way, 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.”
