Is Bette Midler Glad That Lady Gaga Was Pelted With Eggs?
Looks like Gaga’s in hot water with The Divine Miss M.
While most fish lay eggs, one mermaid got eggs thrown at her. After leaving a Sydney club, UK Metro Online reports Lady Gaga dodged a barrage of eggs lobbed at her during an impromptu performance at the gay hotspot Arq. No, it wasn’t because of her outfit.
Halfway through her concert at the Sydney’s Town Hall, Gaga wheeled herself on stage in a black mermaid-like shroud. During an interview with Taiwanese talk show Channel V (subtitles not included), Gaga revealed her mermaid disguise was an alter ego, Yuyi, scheduled to be unveiled in her next video for an unannounced single from the release, Born This Way. “The relation of the video to my real life, as well as to my dream of the future, is really what makes it so special,” Gaga said. “Part of what Born This Way is all about is choosing to live halfway between reality and fantasy at all times, and how anyone can do that.”
Funny, Bette Midler AKA The Divine Miss M has been doing the mermaid in the wheelchair bit longer than Gaga’s been alive. Bette took to Twitter to express her displeasure over Gaga’s schtick.
