Rock stars. Always pushing the envelope. Always living on the edge. Always daring. If you want to stay current, baby, you’ve got to look at what those on top are doing and ride that wave. And right now? That wave is vomiting all over the stage.
In the last few days both Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga have decided that what audiences want is more of them – more of them hurling during concerts. I’m sure Bieber puked super cute, and Gaga threw up in way that was totally outrageous and dared to be different, but they both took it to that next level. I’m sure it was all because of something wholesome in Bieber’s case – like he ate too many s’mores at the pre-concert cookout or put too much glitter on his Cheerios – and something weird in Gaga’s case; nothing tawdry or typical rock-indulgence stuff. No sir.
Once the legerdemain of extreme acts like GG Allin, The Sex Pistols and hardcore metal acts, now The Beebs and The Gaga have brought stage-barfing in to the mainstream. And I for one, say it’s about time! No longer bound by conventional rules of entertainment, these pop pioneers are keeping it real. Really, really, un-hygienically real.
It’s exciting to think of the possibilities this opens up.
