Eating disorder specialist criticises Gaga vomit show

A leading UK consultant in eating disorders has criticised Lady Gaga after a video emerged online of her being vomited on during a live show at the SXSW festival in Texas.

The performer, or "vomit painter", named Millie Brown, is known for drinking liquids and vomiting them onto canvas - but on this occasion it was Gaga herself.

A US journalist who reported on the story tweeted a screengrab of the video.

Care UK Professor Bryan Lask, who works alongside the Child and Family Practice in London specialising in eating disorders, told ITV News: "It's appalling. Lady Gaga is obviously not a good role model - what message does it give to those prone to eating disorders?"
