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."
