When we first saw these photos of Lady Gaga outside a studio in London we were a little disappointed. A spiked purse is fine enough, but a short black suit jacket and bra? That hasn’t blown anyone away since Madonna sported the look everywhere twenty years ago. Is this the end of Gaga’s wild and crazy outfits? Has she finally run out of ideas?
Then we saw the shoes and went on a magic carpet ride we’ve yet to return from. First we wondered if they involved some kind of optical illusion with extra material that made her appear to wear half-platforms when really her feet were on the ground. Then, finally, we admitted it: she was walking on platforms with no heels. Our apologies to fashionistas who have seen this trick before, but if her mission to was to melt our brains: mission accomplished. Now the accessory makes perfect sense: this outfit is all about pain. See more photos of the shoes—and shot from her O2 arena show this weekend in the gallery below.

Never one to blend in with her surroundings, Lady Gaga attracted a mob of fans as she left NYC’s Carnegie Hall. The always-outrageous pop star took time away from her hectic tour schedule to perform at the Rainforest Concert alongside Elton John and Sting. Can you spot 10 differences in this pic of a silver-haired Gaga signing autographs for her little monsters? [Photo: Splash News Online]
We’re Lady Gaga fans, but we admittedly don’t really care much about her eccentric artist schtick. She’s a singer who acts and dresses crazy, something singers have been doing for years, she just takes it to a higher level. So the news that she locked herself in her dressing room at the Met Costume Institute Gala and refused to walk the red carpet the other night is not surprising, but it does garner an eye-roll and a yawn from us. Despite her best efforts to be a drama queen, her presence was required because she was featured performer at the event. So what finally convinced Gaga to come out? Why, Oprah, of course. Okay, Oprah and Gaga’s friend, artist Terence Koh, who had to be called in to coax the delicate flower that she was wanted, no, needed, at the event.
When she finally took the stage, Gaga returned to her jolly old self, telling the audience “I’ll never forget when Anna Wintour called me to play at this event, she called me and said, ‘I would like you to play at the Met gala, but I just want to make sure, because I’ve seen you perform before, that you won’t be swearing during the performance.’ So Anna, I will do my f*cking best!” Gaga wore a Prada tux to the event, and was photographed with Miuccia Prada, who we hope was not offended that her look didn’t get photographed on the red carpet.

Lady Gaga isn’t just denying the charges in ex-manager/boyfriend Rob Fusari‘s $35 million lawsuit—in fact, she says he owes her money for letting her sign that damn contract in the first place. “The…arrangement was structured in such a way as to mask its true purpose—to provide [Fulsari] unlawful compensation for their services as unlicensed employment agents.” Fulsari’s lawyer contests he wasn’t required to be a licensed agent in order to be Gaga’s pre-fame svengali. “Rob was no more of an ‘agent’ for her than she is a Roman Catholic nun.” Zing!
Thankfully, the “Telephone” singer doesn’t seem too concerned over whether her ex will succeed in taking a slice of her profits, instead sharing a look at her new “vampire grillz” with fans. “Early birthday present from the haus, gravediggaz! i’ve been begging for these.” As long as she can keep from fainting on stage again, she should have no problem raising whatever money Fusari winds up getting…if he gets anything at all.

Lady Gaga, she of the weird outfits, recently asked 80’s singer Boy George to sign her vagina. The pair met backstage at one of her shows, and Gaga, in her desperate quest to always be the most alternative girl in the room, requested the his John Hancock on her genitals. Sadly, the once-hip pop star has turned into a grandfather, and would not oblige.
“It was very brief when I met her, there were a lot of people in the room, it was all a bit chaotic,” Boy George told British paper The Mirror. “I haven’t been around that kind of circus in years! I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ You know, I’ve been that woman! So it was very interesting to be on the outside looking in. She was very sweet. She asked me to sign her vagina.”
Boy G. signed her hat instead, foiling the Lady’s attempting at alterna-coolness. But for reals, Gaga’s “I’m so weird, look at me!” shtick is tired. We all saw Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club…been there, done that. Isn’t the weirdest thing for the singer to do now is just act normal? [Photos: GettyImages]
Lady Gaga touched down in Australia today rocking a look straight from the “Telephone” set. She greeted fans at the Sydney airport with Diet Coke cans in her hair and Chanel shades over her eyes. Logistically she must have had her hair done mid-air, as there’s no way she got that ‘do through airport security. Gaga is never one to shy away from outrageous outfits while flying, but is this look too much, or just her version of travel chic? [Photo: Splash News]
Lady Gaga showed off her latest fashion casserole outside of the Buddha Bar in London last night, having pre-recorded a performance for the Jonathan Ross show earlier in the day. We’re not sure what to make of this one: the metal frame is a skirt, yeah, but the wire fencing coming out of her radio antenna headgear? The jacket over the underwear? This just seems sloppy compared to Gaga’s lobster mask last weekend. Now that was a concept.
