What in the actual fuck. OK this might actually be the most outrageous thing Lady Gaga has ever done. More outrageous than the meat dress. More outrageous than the Marina Abramovic nude art camp thing. For Mother Monster’s SXSW show last night (March 13), the star voluntarily got vomited on. Yup! During “Swine,” as the star was drumming, a woman came on stage, chugged a bottle of green liquid, shoved her fingers down her throat and regurgitated it onto Gaga. Several times.
Then, Gaga mounted a mechanical
bull pig and got the same treatment with black goo, but this time they were scissoring as it happened. She didn’t wipe the bodily fluids off her for the remainder of the set. And there was so much puke, you guys. The fact that this was all happening with a backdrop of giant neon Doritos logos makes it even more subversive.
By the way, she started the show in typical Gaga fashion, being roasted on a spit (because she was at Stubb’s BBQ!) and spanked for “Aura,” which in retrospect is Sara Bareilles-level tameness.
Watch videos and GIFs of her putting the “gag” in Gaga (or, perhaps you’d prefer, “Gaga, more like Gah!-ga”) below.
