Lady Gaga recently had her YouTube channel taken down due to copyright infringement, which should be no surprise. Last week in Sydney, Australia Gaga rolled out on the stage in a mermaid outfit and in a wheelchair. The audience responded by throwing eggs at her after the show.
The original mermaid in a wheelchair, Bette Midler, didn’t get the same angry reaction from fans, but she did have an angry reaction of her own to Lady Gaga’s stealing of her act. She tweeted:
"I’ve been doing singing mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980 – You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker tits – mermaid’s mine."
It used to bother me that Gaga would say her creativity was original. I’m not a fan of liars.
