Demi Lovato to Lady Gaga: Stop “Glamorizing Eating Disorders”
Many Lady Gaga fans were grossed out by an on-stage vomiting stunt, but at least one Little Monster isn’t taking the performance lightly.
Demi Lovato is blasting Gaga for hiring Millie Brown, a professional “vomit painter,” to puke neon green vomit on her during her SXSW appearance, “The Huffington Post” reports.
Lovato took to Twitter to voice her feelings about the stunt in a series of posts.
“Sad… As if we didn’t have enough people glamorizing eat[ing] discorders already. Bottom line, it’s not ‘cool’ or ‘artsy’ at all,” she wrote in one, adding, “So it’s cool if I do a speech about self-harm and then proceed to watch someone cut themselves on my stage?”
The former Disney star’s primary point appears to be that fans are influenced by these artists and could misunderstand what Gaga is calling her art.
Lovato added, “P.S. I’m still a little monster myself.” Mother Monster has chosen not to respond to the criticism, even going so far as to retweet a post Brown made of one of her “vomit paintings.”
