Mother Monster Lady Gaga was recently egged this past Wednesday. Sounds insane with all of the fans that she’s known for having. Apparently people didn’t like Lady Gaga rolling around the stage in a wheelchair. Gaga used the wheelchair because she had used it previously in her music video for her hit song “Paparazzi” as well as her performance on the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Her Australian fan base was not going for it though and proceeded to throw eggs at her on stage. Luckily, she didn’t get hit with any eggs but her entourage did. Go figure.
This wheelchair issue has really ruffled some feathers too.Â The founder of the quadriplegic advocacy group Life Rolls On, Jesse Billauer, has issued a statement saying “I invite [Gaga] to learn more about the 5.6 million Americans who live with paralysis. They, like me, unfortunately, don’t use a wheelchair for shock value”. Looks to me like she’s pissed off a few people with this stunt. While she’s expressed her love and stands up for the LGBT community it seems as if she’s got no heart for the disabled.
In addition to this, Lady Gaga also got herself into some additional trouble. Her YouTube account was suspended just recently when she posted footage of her appearance on a Japanese television show. Media Interactive ordered that she remove the footage and it was then that YouTube allowed Lady Gaga to use her official page again. Looks like it doesn’t matter if you’re Lady Gaga or the average Joe….rules are rules!
Do you think it was cool for her to roll around in a wheel chair? Do you think fans went over board by egging her?
