By calling her next album ARTPOP, Lady Gaga is fully acknowledging that her work is and will continue to be a pastiche — a collage of her many influences from the worlds of art and popular culture. In her latest video posted to LittleMonsters.com, she showed off two new parts of that collage. First was the fancy new fiber optic wig designed by the Haus of Gaga (and that really reminds me of the wands I used to buy at the circus as a kid).
“So the wig is made up of a mixture of real human hair and the finest fiber optics in existence — they move and feel like real hair,” she says. “It was handmade. The hair was inspired by taking a Disney Princess and putting her in a rave.”
It’s pretty darn cool, and we can’t wait to see what it looks like onstage. But we’re on the fence about innovation #2: The bizarre mixture of accents she uses when talking about the wig. Just listen to her say the words “handmade,” “mixture,” “putting her in a rave” and “plugged into a generator.” It’s some kind of blend of Madonna-esque British, Irish and American theatre diva. Which, Gaga has every right to use, of course, being the theatrical lady she is. When she finishes her presentation, though, and starts singing “Dance, too much booty in the pants” in her normal accent, she’s just so much more endearing.
It all kind of feels like the fake commercials we used to make during sleepover parties. And wow, making a fake ad during a sleepover party with Gaga sounds like the BEST. THING. EVER. We are officially jealous of Lindsay Lohan again.
