The music world is not exactly known for toned-down styles, and many fashion forward females in the biz have upped even their bra game! Whether they shoot fire, bullets or whipped cream, or are made from candy, cupcakes, shells or gold, these gals must shop in a very special section of Victoria’s Secret.

Madonna and Cher were particular trailblazers in turning underwear into outrageous outerwear, and the tradition has continued over the years thanks to the crazy concert attire and music video wardrobes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and (especially) Katy Perry. But our question is always: are they comfortable? Ehhh, we kind of think not, but these ladies suffer through in order to maintain their crazy crown.

Head up to the gallery above for bizarre brassieres of every shape, make and stripe! Whatever you do, don’t get too close to Lady Gaga’s machine gun one. Or her flame-shooting one, for that matter. That could end badly…
