Hm, maybe we’re warming to Lady Gaga. At first we thought she was just Christina Aguilera with an overexcited 1980’s stylist, and her lunatic interview pronouncements didn’t help. But appearing on the UK’s Paul O’Grady show she put on a fierce performance and came across as quite sweet. Dressed in one of her reliably insane looks — thigh high laced-up white leather boots and china-doll style black lipstick, anyone? — she revealed that what makes her unique look is pretty cheap.
“I [used to have] more of a beer budget so I used to buy rhinestones and beads and find things in my apartment that were really cool and glue them onto three dollar bras from Conway,” she said.
The host also told us the only thing she asked for on her dressing-room rider was houmous. Aw. She’s like an exotic pet, really. A cockatoo.
