Lady Gaga recently threw up, puked, ralphed, right at the opening to her song "I'm on The Edge". Her backup dancer noticed and looked a little concerned, but when Gaga immediately continued with her performance, they both jumped back into action. It was kind of .... very cool and professional.
Now a lot of people are trying to say she got busted for lip syncing because clearly you can hear her voice over the PA while she is throwing up. I have two comments:
- Since when is it unacceptable to lip sync during pop music performances? The show/performance as a whole is usually much much more than just their singing or instrumentation
- Some of her fans are claiming that the beginning vocals where she sings "I'm on the edge" are actually supposed to be on a track, as they're just background before she gets into her actual singing
Whatever you think you've got to credit her for jumping back into character so quickly. I haven't seen that happen since I was 16 years old puking into my friend's toilet at 11am Sunday morning after a high school party with my mom pulling up in the driveway 5 seconds later to pick me up. HA.
