The performance artist who’s now BFF with Gaga isn’t crying over spilled milk that she’s just going to puke up anyway.
And she isn’t about to apologize for hurting Demi Lovato feelings.
Millie Brown is telling the world that when it comes to art and vomit, you should be able to puke wherever and on whomever you want.
Brown, who ingests a bright array of colored milk and regurgitates it over canvas (or in the rare circumstance, green goo all over Gaga at last week’s SXSW festival) to express herself…
Is directly responding to Lovato’s myriad of tweets ranting about her own disgust over the performance.
The 21-year-old singer left rehab in 2011 after being treated for substance abuse issues, cutting and bulimia.
Things got a little heated when she then engaged in a Twitter tête-à-tête with a fan expressing an opposing viewpoint.
Wilmer Valderrama‘s girlfriend wasn’t done arguing her point because she’s been through a “shit ton,” and ironically similar to Brown she just wanted to express herself.
“All I’m saying is, artists in pop culture have influence on people.. Some of which are people who aren’t capable of understanding the art that is that is expressed by their idols,” Lovato wrote March 14. “Young people who are struggling to figure out their identities are seriously influenced by the things they see their idols do. Whether we intend to or not, artists influence people of ALL ages and unfortunately what people see, people do. Hair, clothes and sometimes misinterpreting things, therefore using the excuse of art to engage in self-destructive behaviors.
“I’ve been through a shit ton.. More than any of you know, and I sympathize for everyone’s struggle. But people emulate what they see celebrities do or let happen,” she continued. “And that’s why I had to say something.. to let the people who don’t understand the art in it, that bulimia isn’t cool, and it won’t get you on stage with your favorite artist. I can’t NOT say anything because I stand up for what I believe in and speak out about mental illnesses. You’re right, nobody asked my opinion but pop culture is a huge part in leading our generation, we have to continue to strive to change the world. No hate, no shade, just love.”
