A group of angry fans threw eggs at Lady Gaga in response to her recent appearance on stage in Sydney, Australia rolling around in a wheelchair.
Though the throwers missed Gaga herself, a few eggs hit members of her entourage. It is unclear why audience members had the eggs in the first place, however.

Being controversial and the freedom to have artistic control sometimes means you cross certain boundaries and don't realise. I'm a bit puzzled too, as to why people would take eggs to a concert - they obviously already intended to egg her before even knowing that she was going to take to a wheelchair, but then again, they have paid for tickets...

Maybe word got out that she was going to perform in a wheelchair ...

Bette Midler did the ol' 'Mermaid in a Wheelchair' shtick years ago.

I have always wondered where audiences in old movies got the tomatoes, lettuce, etc. they always throw at bad performers. I figured they sold the stuff in the lobby.

I think its a gag that pays homage to the old vuadville times where rotten produce and other things would be thrown to get bad performers off the stage(I think, Im not certain however and I'm too lazy to look it up.)

I'd egg her even if she wasn't in a wheel chair.

Though I don't listen to her at all, I know so many who do.  And they're not kids.  
I admire artistic expression, especially if it p**ses people off.   :thumbup: :teddyr:  But, they went there with that intent.  Nobody's got groceries at a Concert.

The audience tried to egg on Lady Gaga but the yolks on her entourage.

Would have been funnier if someone had egged her the time she performed wearing a bald cap.

As for what happened, I'm not seeing anything to indicate the egging in this case was because she was in a wheelchair. Seems more like some pranksters brought eggs with the intent to throw them regardless. And from a practical point of view, her reduced mobility in that situation would have made her a great target.

What I wonder is whether the media themselves made it about the wheelchair, or Gaga's own people spun it that way to play her up as a controversial and provocative artiste.

I wonder if this was all staged for extra publicity.  Why would anyone, let alone a multitudes of anyone, buy concert tickets just to throw eggs?

Yeah, it like I said earlier about those old movies/Vaudville shows. Did audiences go to the performances with bags of rotten produce or did the theater keep a suppy handy - just in case.

There have been enough examples of people getting their 15 minutes of fame by chucking something at a famous person for me to think it was just some pranksters looking to grab a headline and have something to brag about.

Now, the idea that it had anything to do with taking offense at what was on stage has no basis I can see. That might well have been spun to Gaga's advantage, making it about the show pushing boundaries and not about some group of people using the star to show off, or perhaps expressing their overall dislike of her.

I really don't think she is desperate for extra publicity right now. She's pretty much the hottest selling artist on the planet.

True.  She's so hot, she's hard boiled.

Ouch!  :bouncegiggle:

I wonder, given her new egg-throwing fanbase, is she going to move away from pop and start playing yolk music?

Lady Gaga is currently the toast of the music industry, and likes to ham it up on stage, making her a target for egg throwers.

She's not only a superstar, she's part of a complete breakfast!
