Lady Gaga’s Visit With Julian Assange: Just Her Latest Effort To Keep Us Guessing

Lady Gaga and Julian Assange

We admit it, we have no idea whether or not to side with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange — on the one hand, he is a renegade fighter for free speech; on the other, he’s released a lot of documents that some say have compromised national security; on the other, other hand, he’s been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London to avoid extradition on rape and assault charges. But interestingly, the Australian hacker now has a couple of high-profile supporters: M.I.A. and Lady Gaga, Atlantic Wire points out. The former tweeted at Gaga on Sunday:

And apparently, Gaga took her up on the invitation, donning a very witchy getup and snapping the above photo with Assange. It’s interesting to see the Mother Monster take a stand on something like this, straying from her usual messages about bullying and gay rights. But you may recall she has an indirect connection to WikiLeaks — U.S. Army Pvt. Bradley Manning reportedly used CD-Rs labeled “Lady Gaga” to download the classified diplomatic cables he handed over to the site.



M.I.A.’s Son Sports Matching Polka Dots


Always the daring fashionista, M.I.A. donned a proud-to-be-pregnant polka dot ensemble to this year’s Grammy Awards, ON her due date might we add. Son Ikhyd entered the world three days later, and now at five months old is making fashion statements of his own. M.I.A. posted the above photo to her Twitter account on Monday, showing off the bold onesie designer House of Holland made for her adorable baby. Next step: mini Ray Bans.
