Lady GaGa made another jaw-dropping performance. When taking the stage at the first day of 2010 Lollapalooza music festival on August 6, the dance queen who wore ragged fishnet stockings did a crowd-diving with Semi Precious Weapons' frontman Justin Tranter and locked lips with him.

GaGa invaded the stage when the band sang "Magnetic Baby" hours prior to her own full set. "If anyone calls Lady GaGa a pop star I'll f*cking kill them," Tranter said in an accompanying message of the picture taken by Last Nights Party from Chicago where the gig took place. "She is a rock star, and she is helping, Semi Precious Weapons, bring rockNroll back. RockNRoll is back bitches!"
