Singer Apologizes After Videos Of Her Urinating On A Fan On Stage Went Viral


When live on stage, people can get caught into the atmosphere that sometimes, the vibes can make things go out of hands.

And live rock music concert is among the most common places where these things can happen.

In this case, it's Sophia Urista, a former contestant at the 'The Voice' U.S. in season 11 in 2016.

Singing with Brass Against, a band known for covering songs by other bands, Urista was singing 'Wake Up' by Rage Against the Machine when she had to desperately relieve herself.

At the Florida’s Welcome to Rockville festival at Daytona National Speedway in the U.S., the 35-year-old frontwoman was seen telling the crowd that she "gotta pee" but won’t be able to make it to the bathroom.

So instead, a man was invited onto the stage.

The man who enthusiastically volunteered was shown laying down on his back, where the singer then proceeded by approaching him, pulled down her trousers and underwear, and semi squatted, hovering right above his face.

Urista then began urinating into the "motherfucker’s mouth."

The male fan also had with him a beer he put on his head.

After Urista was done emptying her bladder, the excited fan who received the 'golden shower' stood up, spewed up some of the urine he got in his mouth in the direction of the audience.

In the unsanitary scene, the man even scooped some of Urista's urine from the stage with his hands to wet at least some of the people below.

"I think I heard a shot!" as Urista sang a lyric from her Wake Up song.

Of course, the moment was recorded by the many who were there, who then uploaded it to the internet.

Soon, the singer received numerous backlash.

People said that what she did is disgusting, and not appropriate.

Urista then made a public apology in response to the backlash.

"Hey everyone," she said. "I want to speak to my performance at Rockville metal festival in Daytona. I have always pushed the limits in music and on stage. That night, I pushed the limits too far."

"I love my family, the band, and the fans more than anything and I know that some were hurt or offended by what I did. I apologise to them and want them to know that I didn’t mean to hurt them."

She also added that "I am not a shock artist. I always want to put the music first. I’m grateful for all of your continued love and support."

The band also apologized for the incident, saying that "it’s not something you’ll see again at our shows," and went on explaining that Urista simply "got carried away" and that they are "truly sorry. Not who we are as a band."

It has been for many times that rock bands on stage can be shocking to the audience.

There can be incidents, like elaborate staging, vile stunts, and gross-out moments.

And Sophie Urista's scandal here, is just one among the many.

The thing is, the act was caught on camera, and people complained about it.

Though there have been many tweets and videos of the event showing that the incident was not at all a sexual assault, and Urista actually cleaned up the mess afterwards, the act was considered "disgusting," "devilish" and "pure trash."

While many fans said that she did nothing wrong, according to police, the stunt has indeed broke several indecent exposure laws.

Following the backlash, the Daytona Police said that they are investigating the incident as it is unlawful to "expose his or her sexual organs in public or on the private premises of another, or so near thereto as to be seen from private premises, in a vulgar or indecent manner."

It's worth noting that Urista is far from the first vocalist who’s performed an obscene act while on stage.

Iggy Pop has vomited on his fans multiple times, while GG Allin used to throw his own feces into the crowd. Singer Donita Sparks infamously flung a used tampon into the crowd, telling fans to “eat it.” And, in 1986, musician Gibby Haynes had onstage sex with a backup dancer as the audience watched.

Multiple other musicians — many of whom are much more famous than Urista — have also allegedly emptied their bladders before stunned audiences, including rock legends Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons. Late grunge rocker Shannon Hoon even aimed his penis at fans in the front row of a show, splashing them with his urine.

Fergie, Shania Twain and Marie Osmond have also peed during their performances.
