Lady Gaga is ruffling some feathers with her stage antics. The singer — who is all about shock value — rolled out in a wheelchair during her performance in Sydney, Australia Wednesday night to the chagrin of some of some of her monsters and an advocacy group.
“I haven’t seen Lady Gaga’s performance, but respect her artistic expression as an artist. Since this isn’t the first time she has used a wheelchair in her performances, I invite her to learn more about the 5.6 million Americans who live with paralysis,” Jesse Billauer, founder of the Life Rolls On Foundation, told Radar Online.
“They, like me, unfortunately, don’t use a wheelchair for shock value.”
Lady Gaga is known her shocking stage antics and jaw-dropping fashions, but Billauer feels she needs to be more careful and sensitive to those who live with paralysis.
“I extend a personal invitation to Lady Gaga to attend one of our Life Rolls On events where quadriplegics and paraplegics surf, skate, and snowboard, so she can see how much is possible beyond a wheelchair,” Billauer added. “Maybe that will be most shocking to her of all.”
Lady Gaga may have already been punished for her insensitive performance.
After leaving a gay bar in Sydney, Australia, pranksters pelted her with eggs, Entertainment Weekly reports.
