Lady Gaga Discusses Pukey Performance on "Today"

Posted Friday March 21, 2014 10:05 AM GMT

She made headlines over her interesting performance at the SXSW Festival in Texas earlier this month, and now Lady Gaga is sharing details about her stunt.

During her interview with Savannah Guthrie on “Today,” the “Born This Way” hitmaker revealed the real reason behind her decision to let a performing artist vomit green slime all over her during the concert at Stubb's BBQ in Austin.

While defending the stage antics, Lady Gaga stated, “I guess we weren’t completely surprised. [Millie Brown] and I know that not everybody was going to love that performance. But we both really believe in artistic expressions and strong identities.”

She continued, “I support her and what she does. ARTPOP, my new album, is about bringing art and music together and the spirit of creative rebellion. For me, that performance was art in its purest form. But we totally understand that some people won’t be into it.”

In regards about the controversial performance as a whole, Mother Monster noted, “Did we want the controversy? I suppose it doesn’t matter. Either way, we don’t make things for any intention in particular other than in the spirit of entertaining the crow and creating something that is really a for the moment.”

“If wasn’t meant for the ‘Today’ show. It was meant for a club performance in Austin, and we had a great time,” she added.
