As if she weren’t enough of an icon already, Demi Lovato further proved her role model status after blasting Lady Gaga for “glamorizing” eating disorders at South by Southwest (SXSW). Here, let us bring you up to speed…

While singing her song “Swine” at the music festival, the Gagster (which is very fitting name at the moment) allowed “vomit painter” Millie Brown to, uhh… perform her craft on her; as in, Millie stuck her finger down her throat, and puked green juices that used to be inside of her onto the “Applause” crooner. LG then performed the rest of the show cover in throw-up. K.

Fortunately, Demi, who has become renowned for speaking up about body image and eating disorders, didn’t hold back on the disgust she felt for this particular event:

D.Lo, we applaud YOU. What do you think of Lady Gaga’s quite literally vomit-inducing performance? Are you on Team Demi like we are? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below, or on our Demi Lovato message board.

    Ohgod! Words can’t describe how much I love Demi for each day that goes by. She’s really a true definition of a rolemodel! So happy we have famous people like her standing up for what really matters in life. There should be more and more celebrities like her out there. It’s about standing up for what you mean is right, and Demi sure is using her fame for the right thing :)

    Anyone who enjoyed and commended Lady Gaga’s performance must be mentally ill, because that was one of the most sickening displays I have ever seen. I wish I could personally thank Demi for sticking up for what’s right! :) Eating disorders are serious and harmful, and I would have to agree with Demi that Lady Gaga’s performance attempted to glamourize them. I don’t know how anyone could consider that performance art, and I feel sorry and concerned for the vomiting performer Millie. I hope that she can receive a wake up call to stop her “art” and get some help.

      Millie is a professional vomit painter. It shouldn’t be counted as the glamorization of eating disorder in the first place because:

      1. Millie needs to starve herself for at least 1 day so that what will come out will only be colored milk. This milk is edible but i should count this as an instrument rather than food.

      2. This performance is not fully visual. People never argue about the music, which is what Gaga does as a recording artist. The song “Swine” itself reflects Gaga’s annoyance towards a particular person who is regarded as disgusting and harmful in the past. This perhaps links to the performance itself. Art is not equal to visual beauty all the time. If you do study art, any forms of art has a personal intention of creation, and it is always up to the artist on what to convey and the actual meaning behind it. So here, being literal does not work.

    Good for Demi! Celebrities get criticized when they stand up for things they believe in, especially if it has to do with an incredibly popular celebrity. Miley gets criticized for doing wild, out there things, yet Gaga gets away with it because “it’s art.” Gaga was just trying to be provocative, but she did send a bad message. Demi was totally right on calling Gaga out, and she doesn’t deserve to get hate for it.
