Lady Gaga’s latest provocative performance on British talent show The X Factor had sparked a slew of complaints.
Officials at TV watchdog agency Ofcom have revealed they received more than 100 complaints from viewers after the pop star stripped to her underwear for a raunchy routine on the show on Sunday night – at the height of family viewing.
Parents have urged the authorities to take action against network bosses at ITV for allowing her to shock and stun in flesh-colored pants and a bra decorated with shells, similar to the outfit she wore onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, while children were watching.
Another 60 viewers have complained directly to ITV about Gaga’s provocative performance.
In a statement released on Monday, ITV bosses said, “We do not believe Lady Gaga’s performance was inappropriate for the family audience of the show, which has an established tradition of performances from the biggest music stars. She’s well known for her highly individual style.”
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Ofcom adds, “We will assess all the complaints received on this issue before deciding whether to investigate.”
The TV set ended a racy few days for Gaga, who stripped down to her bra and panties for a gig at a sex club in Berlin, Germany on Thursday and then bared all after stepping out of a flowing white dress during a surprise performance at a London gay club on Saturday.
