Lady Gaga crowd surfs at Lollapalooza

Over the weekend was the 3-day Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago.
This years lineups featured acts like Lady Gaga, Green Day, Soundgarden, B.O.B., Cypress Hill and at least 50 other acts.
The one band who had the most people talking after the 1st day was a band called Semi Precious Weopans.
They were the opening band on Lady Gaga's 'Monster Ball' Tour and even have a cameo in here 'Telephone' video w/ Beyonce.
Well this past Friday they took one of the many stages at Lollapalooza (supposedly the SAME stage Lady Gaga performed at 3 years ago at the same festival to kick off her career)
It wasnt the rocking-out performance of the band though that had everybody talking at the end. It was the surprise cameo by Miss Gaga herself.
During the bands last song 'Magnetic Baby' (to which she even got on stage and played the drums/sang backup to) Lady Gaga took it upon herself to literally jump into the crowd and crowd surf (along with singer Justin Tranter).
On top of all that it was more less what she was wearing (or what she WASNT wearing) that made the whole exibition more eyebrow raising!
From a distance she looks like she might be naked but shes wearing a one-piece straight-up fishnet outfit with pasties over her breasts.
If you notice she even straddles one fan who then goes ahead and LICKS her stomach. Weird.
Since Semi Precious Weopans were not an act slated to be on the trendy mainstage but yet a smaller stage far from it. Imagine going to see this band perform and being up close to the front and getting to experience this...
LADY GAGA CROWD SURFS AT LOLLAPALOOZA
Semi Precious Weopans singer Justin told MTV later about the experience: "She stood on the side of the stage, and then during the song Magnetic Baby, she started playing drums with Dan. Then she started singing backup vocals, then her and I made out, and then she stagedove and then I joined her while she stage-dove. And then we made out while stagediving. And then she left. It was pretty amazing."
Although this video pretty much captures just the stagediving element of all this. One fan has already uploaded a video of her crowdsurfing from a crowd POV (instead of the stage POV you got to see in the above video. That video can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ShJWMDLusE&feature=related
Something tells me in the coming weeks this little-known band will start getting more attention just based on Miss Gaga's antics over the weekend. And good for them, when youre friends with Miss Gaga...it SHOULD have its benefits!
