Lady Gaga?s appearing live and in the flesh all right. The ?Applause? singer?s performance Sunday night on Britain?s The X Factor has drawn more than 260 complaints from viewers who weren?t thrilled to see her cavorting around in nude-colored underwear and a pair of seashells for a bra while she performed ?Venus? and ?Do What U Want,? two anthems off her latest album, Artpop.
Per the Guardian, the U.K.?s TV watchdog Ofcom confirmed it received a ?high volume? of objections, as did executives for ITV, and that it was evaluating them to determine whether or not to investigate.
A spokesman for the network defended Gaga.
?We do not believe Lady Gaga?s performance was inappropriate for the family audience of the X Factorresults show, which has an established tradition of featuring performances from the biggest music stars. Lady Gaga is well known for her highly individual performance style,? the ITV rep said.
