Lady Gaga vs Bette Midler: The Truth Behind Stealing Mermaid Performance

in Society

Lady Gaga is always the center of the public attention with a range of her extremely outrageous outfits. However, last week, she performed in Australia and surprisingly; the singer went up the stage as a mermaid in a wheelchair, annoying those who suffer from leg disabilities. Other opinion stated that her stage act seemed like a plagiarist to Kurt Cobain who also made the same performance. Whether Lady Gaga copied the idea of stage act designed by Bette Midler? Let's discover the truth behind stealing mermaid performance.


A few days ago, Bette Midler called Gaga a copycat on Twitter she has been doing singing mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980. On her Twitter, Bette Midler noted: "I’m not sure @ladygaga knows that I’ve performed my mermaid for millions of people—and many of them are still alive…..” and “Dear @ladygaga Ive been doing singing mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980-You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker tits-mermaid's mine.” However, Gaga then responded Access Hollywood's Billy Bush, "I had no idea that she did that and I'm a huge Bette Midler fan...Maybe we're just cut from the same cloth. I couldn't hop around in that tail so I just stuck myself in a wheelchair." Actress and singer, Bette Midler then toned down her message by tweeting to Gaga, "Fabulous mermaids can co-exist."

“Not in the beginning it wasn’t ’cause I didn’t know that she’d done [it], but I do now and I think it’s great,” Gaga said. “Obviously I feel connected to women in theater and women from the past.”
