We’re obsessed with Lady Gaga‘s bizarrely beautiful outfits – from her tiny top hats to her Alexander McQueen heels – and we’re always eager to see what strange look she’s put together. Say what you will about her weird fashion pics, but Lady Gaga always manages to pull it off. The starlet sat down with VH1 for the first installment of our web series Pop Couture, and dished about her avant garde wardrobe in the “Bad Romance” video, the “creative family” behind her outfits, and the inspiration for her giant arm tattoo – all while wearing a blond Cleopatra-inspired wig and a neck brace-like contraption that is totally bad-ass, of course.
Thanksgiving is a time for us all to sit ’round a table of turkey n’ pie and express what we’re thankful for. Naturally we’re grateful for our family, friends, and health, but we’ve also gotta hand it to Lady Gaga for spicing up our lives in 2009. From memorable performances to political activism, Gaga has inspired us all to take risks, stand up for our beliefs, and accessorize with teacups. Here are nine reasons theFABlife is thankful for Lady G’ this holiday season.
9. Lady Gaga’s fashion choices, oft-scrutinized but always eye-opening. When Gaga showed up to a German interview in nothing but black tights and a Kermit-laden coat, some thought she’d lost her mind. When the interviewer inquired about her froggie get-up, she replied “I dress this way all the time because it inspires my life. I dress this way because my whole life is art and my whole life is performance.” Say what you will about her risk-taking style; you can’t deny her influence. How many Gagas did you see this Halloween?
8. Her vagina has feelings too. Despite consistently wearing nothing but a leotard and tights, haters continue to speculate whether Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite. When asked about the rumor during a radio interview, Gaga comically responded, ”I’m not offended, my vagina is offended.”
See the top seven reasons we’re grateful for Gaga after the jump.
Lady Gaga didn’t pull out all the stops at her Best Buy apperance in LA yesterday. After all, who wants to navigate Saturn rings and veils wedged to your face while signing records at a meet-and-greet? No, Gaga decided to go with a suit—a suit with gigantic shoulder pads and a plunging neckline. Pretty brilliant, really; probably gave some neck support while looking up at fans from her chair. Not that she was thinking only of herself—she wound up ordering 80 pizzas to share with those who waited. Aww!
Dr. Dre was there to hawk his and Gaga’s headphone line, though he didn’t have a new album to sign himself—dude’s last one came out ten years ago. Get on that already, Dre. Gaga made two in two years!

Lady Gaga and Rihanna each gave eccentric, visually captivating performances at last night’s American Music Awards. Gaga donned nude undergarments, fishnets, and an Alien-esque light-up skeleton. During her performance she gyrated, smashed glass, set a piano on fire, and broke bottles, all while delivering stellar vocals on “Bad Romance” and “Speechless.” Rihanna made one helluva comeback in a white-banded bodysuit with a laser-emitting bolero, and a “Rated R” chest tattoo. Whose performance was more stylistically shocking? [Photos: Getty Images]

We don’t know if Lady Gaga had her shirt open the whole time she flew from London to LAX yesterday, but we appreciate the effort she took to reward the paparazzi who welcomed her home. Hustled through the airport by her handlers, the singer looked suitably fatigued in her makeshift fatigues. Between Gaga’s new video and her upcoming Gossip Girl cameo, we wouldn’t blame her for looking beat even if she’d stayed stateside.
Christmas is practically around the corner and we’re starting our annual panic search for what to buy our loved ones. But thankfully, resident lunatic-slash-fashion icon Lady Gaga is here to help! Not only is she “reissuing” her The Fame album as The Fame Monster, for the very special price of $114.98 you can get it plus a very special art book including a real bit snipped off your favorite pop star. Bargain!
Yes, stalkers and weirdos rejoice because Gaga is giving away a “lock of her hair” with every purchase of the “Book of Gaga”! Woop! So, while leafing through Gaga’s “journey into pop superstardom” and wearing those inclusive so-next-season 3-D glasses, you too can develop an unhealthy attachment to a few bits of hair. However, Gaga’s clarified it won’t be her actual hair, just pieces from her many, many wigs. “Some people are saying it is creepy – but they don’t know my fans. My fans love my hair and they want my hair,” she says. [Photo: FilmMagic]
Don’t try to eat a powdered donut through a veil, y’all! Grr! Lady Gaga accepted a Stylemaker award at the 2009 ACE Awards in NY, dressing the part in a predictably absurd ensemble. Compared to this camera hog, fashion world freaks like Betsey Johnson, Agyness Deyn and Marc Jacobs almost look normal. Ok, they still look outrageous. Check out their flamboyance and flair in the gallery below.
Everything seemed fine with Lady Gaga at the launch of her Heartbeats brand headphones in New York last night, but you wouldn’t know it from the rumors concerning her upcoming “Fame Kills” tour with Kanye West. Yesterday, MediaTakeout shrieked that Gaga could announce her departure from the tour at any moment (which is true, in the sense that anyone could announce anything at any moment). Today, Ryan Seacrest dropped a coy twit on the subject and MSNBC says West may be off to dry out in rehab. Between Gaga’s relatively undramatic public outing and Kanye trying to make “perf” happen on his blog today, neither camp is admitting any drama. But even if the rumors turn out to be true—and don’t expect them to end anytime soon—we’ll always have that kind-of-NSFW tour ad.
UPDATE: LiveNation has announced that the “Fame Kills” tour is being cancelled. Let the blame game begin.

Call us crazy, but right now we’re totally goo goo for Gaga! Whenever we see a photo of the Lady she is sporting one absurdity after another. Her fashion choices are bold, risky and always questionable; however, that’s all part of her charm. Sure, she’s purposely trying to push the envelope. Let’s be real, who would wear a coat of frogs? (Answer: No one!) Nonetheless, Lady Gaga still has us intrigued. Check out 40 of Lady Gaga’s hottest and quirkiest looks on stage, on the red carpet and on the street and tell us what you think. Are you a fan of her other-worldly style or do you think she should get on a space ship back to planet trying-too-hardsville?
Can’t wait to see what Lady Gaga will rock next? Fortunately for you, the wait won’t be long. The VMA nominated diva will be performing tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards. And we’re positive she won’t disappoint. Check back here later for our exclusive VMA coverage, including a live chat and plenty of photos from the red carpet and the big show.
