Apparently Lady Gaga will not be outdone by Justin Bieber. She vomited onstage during a concert over the weekend in Barcelona, one week after Bieber did the same thing when his tour opened in Phoenix. Unlike the Biebs, Gaga booted and rallied during “Edge of Glory” without leaving the stage even once. She also tweeted the YouTube video of the incident, and referred to herself as Lady PukeGA.

Fliers have been posted on storefronts. Detectives have gone door to door. An Amber alert has been issued to sound the alarm that a girl is missing. The disappearance of 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley from this Phoenix suburb on Oct. 11 has, in some ways, stuck to the script of what occurs coast to coast when children cannot be found.
