Controversy has surrounded Lady Gaga after her Thursday night performance at South By South West Festival where performance artist Millie Brown vomited on her during her rendition of ‘Swine’. This performance has been criticized by many, including Demi Lovato, for “glamorizing” bulimia after Brown drank coloured milk before vomiting on Mother Monster.  Lovato, who has had her battle with eating disorders, took to twitter to express her discontent, tweeting: “Putting the word ART in it isn’t a free card to do whatever you want without consequences”. But now Gaga defends her performance. In an hour-long speech at the event, she explained, “Sometimes things that are really strange and feel really wrong can change the world. I’m not saying vomit is going to change the world. What I’m saying is it’s the idea of a moment where it’s truly just what we wanted to create and us just respecting each other as artists was enough for the performance to be worth it”. “I’ve known Millie for, I think like five years now, and we’ve actually collaborated before, she was just in town and so we thought we would collaborate again” she added. This is not Gaga’s first experience with performance art, as you might (or might not) remember, she collaborated with Marina Abramovic last year as part of her “Abramovic Method”.
