Snarling male dancers, sporting black dresses, grabbed her from behind as she strutted in a low-cut basque. One then dug his teeth into Gaga's neck, sending streams of fake blood running down her chest. Gaga then writhed in the gore before falling onto the floor in a death pose.
The act shocked many of the 15,000 fans at the MEN Arena in Manchester, especially since it came days after so-called Crossbow Cannibal Stephen Griffiths was charged with murdering three prostitutes in Bradford, West Yorks. "I'm a huge fan but was shocked like everyone else," the Sun quoted fan Lydia Haines, as saying.
The 24-year-old added: "It was sick, especially after what happened in Bradford and Cumbria. It was just over the top and gory." A mum who took her 14-year-old daughter to the show said: "I'm absolutely sickened at what I saw. We know Lady GaGa is not exactly mainstream for all the family, but she crossed the line this time. It was extremely tasteless to see her pretend to be attacked in such a gory way, especially in front of kids."
Gaga is in the UK on her Monsters Ball tour.
