We know Lady Gaga is competitive and ambitious and all, but we were surprised that she felt the need to outdo Justin Bieber in the onstage puking department, throwing up not once but three or four times in the middle of “Edge of Glory” and then finishing the song. OK, we’re just kidding that she did it on purpose, but we’re only making light of it because Gaga herself poked fun of her reversal of fortune, which happened on Saturday night in Barcelona.
“Was praying nobody saw but actually it’s quite a good laugh if u need one! Check out Lady PukeGA doing Swan ‘Vomit’ Lake,” she tweeted this morning, with a link to the above video, shot by a fan. “I still hit my routine, Mom!! Thank goodness for the Dorchester… I need some tea, I think I just cried a little watching that.”
You’ve gotta love a pop star who can bounce back like that AND laugh about it. Gaga possibly provided clues to the source of her temporary illness — similar to Bieber’s unfortunate spaghetti-and-milk pre-concert meal:
Yep, eating paella until it comes back at you isn’t an uncommon occurrence. I believe I once puked my guts out in Barcelona too. What is uncommon: Being able to sing while projectile vomiting. (The skeptics out there might be pointing to a backing track right about now, but we can’t determine anything based on a Youtube video.)
And all of this reminds us, you need to go see Pitch Perfect now. You’ll know why.
