Lady Gaga got puked on while performing her song "Swine" on the Doritos #BoldStage at the SXSW music festival Thursday. And there’s video! Nice!

The person booting on Gaga wasn’t a drunk fan, though. It was "vomit painter" Millie Brown, a part of the ARTPOP performer’s wild and provocative show.

In other words, Gaga kneeled mid-song next to Brown, who stuck her finger down her throat and threw up a slimy green substance all over the singer.

Which was somehow not surprising for Lady Gaga. Take a look:

Gaga later took off the apron she was wearing at the time of the hurling, but the 27-year-old performed covered in puke for the rest of her SXSW show.

Not that she was clean to begin with. "I’ve been having such a good time, I didn’t even shower!" she said at the start of the night, according to Billboard.

"I’ve been drinking a lot and eating. Are you f–king hungry? I’ve been having such a good time hearing music, I forgot to do everything this week!"


"Now let’s f–king celebrate! This is the moment now!"

"I won’t play by your f–king rules. This is our world!"

Words to live by. At another point, she urged the sellout crowd to put down their camera phones. "F–k your cell phone. F–k your friends instead!" she yelled.

She also opened up about her insecurities.

"Sometimes, when you’re not yourself it’s so much harder. It’s so much easier to be yourself than it is to be somebody else," she said before singing "Dope."

"When you have to pretend to be somebody else you do things you don’t wanna do. It eats your soul inside and makes you do stupid s–t," Gaga added.

As such, "I wrote this for all the things I’m sorry for. I’m so sorry to myself, that I don’t always be myself. But I’m just gonna be myself today."

We would have it no other way, LG.

Not everyone was pleased with the performance. Demi Lovato ripped Gaga for glorifying bulimia and sending the wrong message with this stunt.

Do you agree with Demi?
