Video: Lady Gaga Bites Head Off Santa Doll at Concert

Singer dedicates decapitation to 'those of you who are feeling lonely this Christmas'

December 17, 2010 10:15 AM ET

Lady Gaga opened her two-night run of shows at London's O2 Arena Thursday evening — and she  brandished her own twisted brand of Christmas cheer.

While greeting fans in the front row, Gaga found a Santa doll that had been thrown on the stage. She picked it up and scrutinized it. "I do like Christmas," she admitted. "But for those of you who are feeling lonely this Christmas, just to keep everyone happy..." It was then that she bit the head off the Santa doll.

The head fell to the floor, and she squished it under her stiletto heel as she yelled, "I hate the holidays! I'm alone and miserable, you fucking dumb bit of toy!"

Gaga then looked at the doll's body and somberly declared, "He was pregnant ... with chemicals not meant for children," before launching right back into her Monster Ball Tour spiel.

On Wednesday night, Gaga took the stage at London's 250-capacity O2 Academy Islington 2 to help out on drums for Semi Precious Weapons, who were headlining a show at the tiny venue that night. Semi Precious Weapons opened last night's Gaga concert.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
