Lady GaGa’s Bloody Controversy
While one should expect to see a little outside the ordinary during her performances, fans in England feel that Lady GaGa crossed the line at her gig in Manchester on Wednesday night (June 3).
As the “Paparazzi” singer faked a murder scene complete with gushing blood, members of the audience weren’t in the proper mood for the theatrics.
The reason behind the sour dispositions is that a horrific shooting spree killing twelve took place just hours before the concert in Cumbria, which followed the murders of three prostitutes in Bradford a few days prior.
A mother who took her 14-year-old daughter to the show told Daily Mail, “I was absolutely sickened at what I saw. We know Lady Gaga is not exactly mainstream performance for all the family but she really crossed the line this time. ‘The scene may have been part of her show but it could have been toned down give the violent events of Bradford and Cumbria.”
The concerned concertgoer adds, “It was extremely tasteless to see her pretend to be attacked in such a gory way – especially in front of young children. What happened in Bradford is very fresh in people’s minds and given all the violence which happened in Cumbria just hours earlier, pop stars should be more a lot more sensitive and not be featuring scenes of murder in their shows. Several of us were aghast when Lady Gaga appeared to be covered in blood. There were lot of the kids there who were sickened too. Many had their hands over their mouths in shock.”
