Performance artist Millie Brown vomited on Lady Gaga during her concert at the SXSW Festival in Austin, and fellow pop singer Demi Lovato was not afraid to show her disapproval.
The singer spoke out on Twitter, saying Gaga glorified bulimia, according to E! News.
"Sad… As if we didn't have enough people glamorizing eating disorders already. Bottom line, it's not 'cool' or 'artsy' at all," she tweeted. “Would you let someone bring a needle and shoot up on you? Addiction is addiction.”
Gaga’s Little Monsters were quick to attack the former Disney singer, defending Gaga’s actions. Lovato wasn’t afraid to respond to the fans that her comments were not hateful but, “if someone has to come forward and say it…I’ll take the heat for it. Putting the word ART in it isn’t a free card to do whatever you want without consequences.”
To further prove her point, Lovato tweeted the controversial singer with kind but firm words.
During a keynote speech at SXSW on March 14, Gaga admitted the stint had gone to far.
According to Digital Spy, Lovato suffered from bulimia and entered rehab for an eating disorder and other issues back in 2010. Thus why she felt so strong about the incident.
Do you think Lovato was in the right to speak her mind or should Gaga be left alone to create her "art?"
