Lady GaGa had flashed audience her g-string in the past and simulated sex with R. Kelly on stage, so the next logical thing was to be roasted and covered in vomit. The controversial singer displayed a series of intricate stage acts when performing at South By Southwest on Thursday, March 13 night.

GaGa kicked off the annual music festival and conference with "Aura", being wheeled out to the stage and hog-tied to a large roasting pit. She asked the crowd whether they were hungry, saying "I've been having such a good time all week. I haven't showered. I've been drinking all week. And eating." And by that, she threw links of sausages to them and showered the front row ones with beer.
