Oh Lady Gaga. Oh my my. Oh my. (There’s really nothing else to say …)
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course, but we prefer to remain silent as to the veracity of this particular label.
Lady Gaga proves yet again that there is such a thing as trying a mite too hard to sound ostensibly creative/eccentric/what-have-you. (Note: by “a mite” we mean “a vomitous amount.”)
“I often feel like my shoes are the only part of me that know what I’m doing all the time because they’re always with me. There’s this one pair of boots that I always wear, and sometimes when I’m so alone in my hotel room, I look at them and I think how they really are the only things in my life that know exactly what I’ve been through all day.”
When Lady Gaga fell down in a London airport wearing super-high heelless platforms, didn’t you think, “Geez, what I’d give to have shoes that make me fall like that as well”?
You didn’t? Well, then you don’t have to worry about scraping together the $6,500 semolians to buy these cutie-pies — designed by Noritaka Tatehana, the guy responsible for Gaga’s beauties. These are possibly the most, um, heel-less and also the most gold-cleated platforms we’ve recently seen. And, for the price, they’re also certainly the most ridiculous. Not to mention stupidest.
Of course, if you’re a purist, you can always go for the ol’ basic black pump . . . well, basic a la Tatehana, natch.

“I promise you, I’ll never let you down. And not for nothing — the album’s finished and it’s fucking really good. So whatever this is, whatever you just did for all of us… I promise to give you the greatest album of this decade, just for you. The funny thing is that some people have reduced freedom to a brand. They think that it’s trendy now to be free. They think it’s trendy to be excited about your identity. When in truth, there is nothing trendy about ‘Born This Way.'” — Lady Gaga talking about her new album during a concert in Poland
To which we say, “Huh?!?”
(She says all this in the below video at about 3:00)
How, you may ask, would one go about really, really enhancing one’s musical creativity? (You may not ask, but we’re going to answer anyway.) By wearing silk underwear, of course. Duh!
This is what Lady Gaga is reportedly doing. According to Contactmusic, Lady Gaga has told her “people” to throw away her cotton, lycra or (shudder) polyester undies and replace them with silk and only silk. Said an assistant:
“She’s so in love with the way it feels on her body, she’s demanded every piece of lingerie be made from 100 per cent pure silk . . . Polyester, cotton and Lycra are all banned . . . She really believes this will help her creativity because if she feels comfortable and her skin is able to breathe properly, she’ll be able to concentrate on her music.”
Mmmmokay. Silk bras and panties = musical genius. Of course, this is also the person who said she thinks that people can steal her creativity through her vagina. So there’s some sort of peculiar logic here, isn’t there? (Maybe not.)
Lady Gaga — who wore a dress made out of meat (deftly accessorized with a meat hat, meat shoes, and a meat purse, natch) when she accepted the Video of the Year award at the MTV VMAs — gave the following cogent explanation for the prime outfit:
“It’s certainly no disrespect to anyone that’s vegan or vegetarian. As you know I’m the most judgment-free human being on the Earth. It has many interpretations, but for me this evening it’s [saying] if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones.”
She later shared a different interpretation, saying that the dress was supposed to show that she is “not a piece of meat.”
