Demi Lovato -- who's struggled with an eating disorder for years -- says Lady Gaga's puking stunt at SXSW was despicable because it glamorizes a terrible disease in the name of art.
Lovato just laid a thick amount of shame on Gaga via Twitter ... saying "Sad ... As if we didn't have enough people glamorizing eat [sic] disorders already."
Demi adds, "Putting the word ART in it isn't a free card to do whatever you want without consequences."
One Twitter user quipped back ... Gaga has struggled with an eating disorder herself and spoke about it before the performance ... but Demi insists that doesn't give her a pass.

Dear Common Sense, the English Language and Rational Thought,
We at TMZ apologize for the following video. We apologize for our photog's silly question, for Macy Gray's, non-sensical response ... and especially for Macy's reference to blue testicles.
We promise to do better next time. We make no promises, however, for Macy.
All the best,
P.S. Macy is hilarious!
BOTCHES 'WE DIDN'T START THE FIRE'
'One of My Worst Songs Ever'
3/14/2014 6:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Billy Joel HATES "We Didn't Start the Fire" ... at least he sure made it seem that way during a concert in Toronto, when he screwed up the lyrics and then RIPPED the song apart.
The Piano Man was performing at the Air Canada Centre on March 9 when he tripped up over the lyrics right around the time he was supposed to sing about Rosenberg's H-Bomb.
That's when he stopped the band dead in their tracks ... and went off -- saying, "All you gotta do is f**k up one word in that song and it's a train wreck."
On the video, unearthed by RollingStone.com, Joel continued to gripe, "It's the same thing verse after verse ... Just the words change. It's one of the worst melodies I ever wrote."
JFK ain't the only one blown away ...
During SXSW Show
3/14/2014 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lady Gaga's antics are sometimes vomit inducing, but this is ridiculous ... last night at her SXSW show, she actually let some chick VOMIT ALL OVER HER while she performed.
The vomiter is no amateur ... she's actually a "vomit painter" (actual profession) named Millie Brown, who is known for drinking various liquids and then vomiting them up onto a canvas. In this case ... the canvas was Lady Gaga.
Gaga was playing drums on a song called "Swine" when Brown, after drinking neon green liquid, proceeded to stand over her, stick her fingers down her throat, and vomit the green liquid all over Gaga.
Watch the performance for yourself ... it's sick. Literally.
Master P Divorce
My Husband's Filthy Rich
And I Need Welfare
3/14/2014 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Master P's estranged wife claims he's worth $200 MILLION ... yet she says he's left her and their 4 minor kids so destitute ... she needs welfare.
Sonya Miller says she's indignant ... because she helped Master P create one of the most successful labels in hip-hop -- No Limit Records -- yet he has cut her off like a bad habit.
Sonya says things have become so desperate ... she had to move in with her adult son, Lil Romeo.
Master P hasn't even responded to her divorce petition. The judge fined him $10K for ignoring the case, but he doesn't seem to care.
Sonya explains in her docs she hooked up with Master P when he didn't have a pot to pee in ... back in '89. They started the label together, and when it exploded, they built an empire, which include clothing manufacturing, sports management, toy manufacturing, and film and TV production.
Oh yeah, they also created an adult erotic phone chatline.
She may be working the phone line if Master P doesn't ante up.
'DWTS' Has Stripped Me Of My Privacy
3/14/2014 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Cody Simpson has lost his right of privacy while doing "Dancing With the Stars." He cannot remove his mic while he's on the phone, while he's talking business, while he reveals his most inner thoughts. The only exception -- taking a dump.
The contract Cody signed makes the NSA look like child's play. We got a copy because Cody's only 17 and the doc has to be filed with the court.
Cody agrees to wear a mic during rehearsal's and training, with only a bathroom break out.
The Australian singer gets a guaranteed $125K ... which goes up the longer he stays on the show. It caps out at $50K per week if he's in the finals.
And, "DWTS" cleverly figured out a way to block Jimmy Fallon from hijacking ABC stars. Cody specifically agreed to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Good Morning America," and "The View."
Here's how onerous the deal is ... "DWTS" has final cut on Cody's hairstyle.
4 Baby Mamas
Pop Out Reality Show
3/14/2014 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Boosie's 4 baby mamas have another bun in the oven -- a reality show.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ, Boosie's babes -- Walnita, Tracey, Trivia, and Gerlissa -- have been putting together a pilot episode over the last few months while the rapper's been locked behind bars. Together, they've mothered Boosie's 7 children (aged 4-11).
FYI, Walnita's the baby mama who was arrested back in 2010 for trying to smuggle Boosie drugs in jail.
We're told the reality show will focus on the ladies' unusual friendships that formed as the result of their ... peculiar circumstances. It's unclear if Boosie -- née Torrence Hatch -- will also be participating now that he's free.
According to sources, the producers behind the show are currently shopping it to several networks -- including Oxygen, WE, and Fuse -- but so far, no deal is in place.

I Had a Chef in Prison
Best Microwave Cook Ever
3/13/2014 4:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Petey Pablo had a personal chef while he was locked up for his firearms conviction ... but picture less Wolfgang Puck, and more Miss Claudette.
Pablo tells TMZ ... he paid another inmate to cook his meals -- dishes like chicken, pizza, and rice and beans. Wolf ranges are not available in the big house, but microwaves were readily available.
The "chef" would buy ingredients from the prison commissary and whip up the meals. Pablo's favorite -- a spicy rice bowl with jalapenos and available meat. Pablo boasts, "It was some of the best food you could ever make in a microwave."
The rapper says he learned a hard lesson behind bars ... and vows to never carry a gun again.
Phoned Lil Boosie in Prison
Day After National Championship
3/13/2014 12:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Boosie got some high-profile support during his stint behind bars ... telling TMZ Sports he got a phone call from Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston the day after FSU won the title.
Here's how it all happened ...
Famous Jameis is a HUGE Boosie fan and during his Freshman year at Florida State, he would often quote Boosie's lyrics to his team, on social media and sometimes during interviews with reporters.
In fact, Jameis said he listened to Boosie in the locker room right before he took the field on Jan. 6.
Word got back to Boosie, who was serving time in Angola State Penitentiary on drug charges, and the rapper tells us he sent a message to JW that he'd love to talk with him when he had the chance.
So ... according to Boosie, Winston phoned the rapper the day after FSU won the National Championship and the two got along like old friends.
"We chopped it up ... I told him I was a fan of his also."
Boosie says he told Jameis to "stay focused" and let him know that he'll be continuing to root for the guy ... even though he's a die-hard LSU fan.
Moral of the story -- win a Heisman and a National Championship ... and you too can meet your hero.

... for Adulterers

The $4 MILLION apology ring Kobe Bryant gave to Vanessa screwed things up for cheaters everywhere ... so says Marlon Wayans who says Kobe set the price of forgiveness way too damn high.
Marlon dished out the knowledge after we asked if Robin Thicke's apparent flower offensive would help the singer win back his wife after she broke things off.
"Robin's trying to bring it back to simplicity," Marlon said ... "Kobe changed the game."
"How is any man that f**ks up ... and we all f**k up ... how am I gonna compete with that?!"
For the record, Kobe didn't just splurge on a ring ... he also gave Vanessa 3 MANSIONS!
... and they're still together.

Don't Pay that Bitch a Cent!

Chris Brown claims an Orange County nightclub is hanging him out to dry by settling up with a woman who sued both Chris and the club ... claiming Chris brutalized her after his performance.
It's a weird lawsuit ... Deanna Gines claims as Chris was leaving Heat Ultralounge last June in Anaheim, he bulldozed through her path, knocking her to the ground and injuring her leg.
Chris calls BS on her story, and frankly he's got a point. In the surveillance video, she limps on one leg and when she appeared on TMZ Live she had a cast on the other leg.
Nonetheless ... Heat Ultralounge settled with Deanna for $15K, which means the only defendant left in the suit is Chris.
Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, thinks the settlement is grossly unfair to his client, because it will leave Brown holding the bag. So Geragos has filed documents asking the judge to block the settlement.
Now this is true love ... Karrueche filed a declaration standing by her man, saying that Chris never touched the broad.
