Performance artist who puked on Lady Gaga during SXSW performance responds to Demi Lovato's claims it glorifies bulimia

By Gina DiFalco,

Following Demi Lovato slamming Lady Gaga for using her SXSW performance to glorify eating disorders, the woman who threw up on the “Swine” singer is coming to her defense.

Lovato, who has publicly shared her story of battling eating disorders, took to Twitter to claim what Gaga did on stage is “sad.”

"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.”

Performance artist Millie Brown told TMZ that they weren’t glamorizing bulimia on stage, saying, "there's a clear difference between using my body to create something beautiful, to express myself and feel powerful, rather than using it to punish myself and conform to society's standards."

As we previously reported, Brown was seen drinking a bright green liquid before vomiting on Gaga during her performance of “Swine” at her first South by Southwest performance.
