5. GREEN VOMIT

Lady Gaga was on the receiving end of public backlash when she attempted a stand against rape while on stage by having a hired artist, Millie Brown, vomit green liquid on her. She was criticized for not taking eating disorders seriously.

This performance was made even more bizarre because the "Paparazzi" singer was riding a mechanical bull during the entire ordeal making this 2014 performance one to remember.

4. JO CALDERONE

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards saw a strange appearance of Lady Gaga as Jo Calderone, her Italian alter-ego. Although her singing was spectacular as always, the crowd was left scratching their heads during the rest of her time on stage.

Lady Gaga then hopped onto a seat and placed her feet in a pair of stirrups where she birthed a golden liquid.

Her performance included a four-minute-long monologue that had the crowd wondering when she would switch from speech to singing and a peculiar tribute to Brittany Spears.

3. GLASTONBURY 2009

The pop singer had 50,000 eyes on her at the Glastonbury festival in 2009, where she managed to surprise fans with 5 attention-grabbing outfits within the short hour she was on stage.

She sported a wide spectrum of costumes, including a Union Jack number and a glass outfit that reflected her memorable performance all too well. The "Poker Face" singer also threw in a speech about the paparazzi as a bonus.

2. MEATY AFFAIR

One of her most outrageous moments that contributed to cementing her reputation as an artist that is willing to go to any length is the meat dress that Lady Gaga wore to the VMAs in 2010.

Franc Fernandez designed the unique outfit and confirmed that it was indeed made of real meat. The singer wore her interesting outfit the entire evening. Fernandez gave insight into the meat dress, saying:

"It was fairly heavy. She said it was the most comfortable dress of the night, though. I'm guessing it weighed around forty pounds."

1. GIVING BIRTH ON STAGE

Lady Gaga took her performance of her track "Born This Way" very literally as she had a mock birth on stage during the closing show of a "Saturday Night Live" show.

She started in a skintight PVC outfit, but as the song headed towards its end, the pop singer emerged from a circle that her dancers had made around her with a protruding bump around her middle.

Lady Gaga then hopped onto a seat and placed her feet in a pair of stirrups where she birthed a golden liquid connecting a new image to her hit "Born This Way," all while on stage.

There seem to be no limits to the extremes that Lady Gaga will go to shock her fans, keeping everyone on their toes with no idea of what to expect when she steps onto the stage and behind the microphone.
