The lady who vomited all over Lady Gaga during her Thursday South by South West (SXSW) performance has fired back at Demi Lovato’s criticism, saying that their performance was not intended to glamorize anything.
As ENTmanai! previously reported, Lovato slammed the performance as yet another stunt that glamorizes bulimia (eating disorder), but ‘performance artist’ Millie Brown insists it wasn’t what she and Gaga intended to do.
Instead, she told TMZ that the performance was meant to challenge the concept of beauty, adding that ‘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.’
And as for Gaga, she is apparently more interested in the buzz the stunt generated on the internet than in the gravity of her decision to get puked on in the name of art.
It was just exciting to see people talk about performance art on the internet,’ she said during her SXSW keynote speech on Friday. ‘We really just did it because we believe in the performance and we believe in what it meant to the song.’
