Lady Gaga is never one to shy away from controversy.

During an SXSW Festival performance in Austin last week, the singer got puked on by artist Mille Brown while singing "Swine."

It was both an unusual act and a scandalous one, with Demi Lovato calling Gaga out for glorying eating disorders.

"We both really believe in artistic expression and strong identities," she said. "I support her and what she does. ARTPOP, my new album, is about bringing art and music together and the sprit of creative rebellion. For us, that performance was art in its purest form."
