Did Lady Gaga Go Too Far?

Lady Gaga is obviously unafraid to push the envelope, but her latest antics have fans wondering if she's pushed it a little too far.

Hours after a cab driver shot and killed 16 people in the English county of Cumbria on June 2, the singer simulated being murdered by a psychopath during her concert at Manchester's MEN Arena.

As the audience looked on, the 24-year-old New Yorker who previously faked a gory death while performing "Paparazzi" at last year's MTV Video Music Awards - was attacked by a man in black, who bit her neck and left her "dying" and dripping in fake blood.

"I was absolutely sickened at what I saw," a mother of a 14-year-old told the Daily Mail. "We know Lady Gaga is not exactly mainstream performance for all the family but she really crossed the line this time."

Lynn Costello of Mothers Against Violence was equally appalled, telling the newspaper that "celebrities need to think about how their behavior influences young people. They're role models, they need to take responsibility. It's tasteless."

    As long as idiots listen to her and idolize her, she'll continue to do some really classless stuff.....

    The woman is nasty! Lady Gaga looks like a man dressed up like a woman!!! it may not be her responsibility to be a positive role model for the younger people, but I tell you, Parents are fighting a losing battle in raising their children, there is so much filth out there. There is no way to keep it from the children!!! It doesn't just take parents to raise a child, it takes everyone!!! It is easy to make the remarks about the parents responsibilities of raising a child because you don't have any or you just don't care. You don't think you should be concerned, but you better be, because these performers will have more influence over your children than you will!!!

    This mother isn't being a good parent if she hasn't done enough research to find out what type of show is put on by Lady GaGa BEFORE she takes her 14 year old to go see it. All you have to do is look at a concert review website to get the details. Come on mother, it's your fault on this one.

    Let's see....Lady Gaga...I like some of her music, don't really like watching her. But that's my choice. If you have a problem with her, just don't watch or listen to her. Parent's if you have a problem then it's your job to keep your kids away. Just because a person is a preformer doesn't mean they are there to be a role model for your kids. Wake up. There have been MANY more bad role model's than good over the years. Pick and choose.

    I was sickened by the photo I saw of her on stage wearing an outfit that revealed a tampon string hanging out of her crotch area.

    I love Lady GaGa, but I definetely don't think it's appropriate to take a 14 year old to her concerts! I've seen a couple of her performances on tv, and not for anyone under 16!

    Did that mother of the 14 year old do shots of brown liquor with the 14 year old prior to concert? Just curious.

    lady gaga has a choice to be or not be a role model, just like that moronic mother had a choice whether or not to take her 14 year old kid to a lady gaga concert. which she definitely should NOT have taken her to.

    Ok, first of all. We all know how theatrical Lady GaGa is, so this shouldn't come off as a surprise to the fourteen year old child's mom. Second order of business, I read a statement that sickened me beyond belief. "She/he is transgendered. (Lady GaGa)" This has nothing of significance importance to the type of performer she is. That statement is showcasing hatred and that it is acceptable to put hate in people's minds because of what a person is or isn't. There has been performers for ages that "push the limits." John Lennon, David Bowie, and the incredible Michael Jackson. A great entertainer will push the limits and put on a show. This is ridiculous!! I suspect people should become more "open" to new things and stop being so judgemental. Lady GaGa will be around for quit sometime and reguardless if you like her not, give her credit for her bravery and outstanding talent.

    No, I don't think she went far enough. I think she should have really let someone kill on her stage.
