This is a follow up to my previous post “Our Haus” and an update on the world’s current, most famous/my favourite pop star, Lady Gaga. Gaga recently released two more of her Haus of U fashion videos where she expresses her artistic ways and dances to her hit You and I.
Also recently release on Tony Bennett’s album Duets II, is a duet she sang with the king of jazz himself, suitably titled, The Lady is a Tramp. I absolutely love this collaboration as the song embodies the pop diva and her love of New York perfectly. The song really shows off her true talent and ability which people seem to overlook as a result of her eclectic styles and statements, which I, (being a part of the “little monsters” cult), happen to deeply admire.
Another piece of incredible art featuring this fantastic woman, that was newly shown during Paris fashion week, is Nicola Formichetti’s video for the Mugler Spring/Summer 2012 womenswear line. This video is beautifully executed, pure art. Despite Gaga’s totally adorable rainbow pigtails and silver, bunny-like teeth in the film, she repeats the phrase “Don’t anger a Mugler woman, she will eat you,” typically, (for lack of a better word) breaking boundaries. This phrase amuses me as it shows how Gaga never conforms to any “socially acceptable” conventions and will say whatever completely, wacky things that she pleases.
It has also been rumored that Lady Gaga may join the band Queen (yes, that Queen, the Bohemian Rhapsody Queen,) replacing Freddie Mercury as lead vocals. Her joining Queen would almost be prophetic as her stage name Lady Gaga derives from the Queen song Radio Gaga and the fact that her theatrical presence and pianist skills resembled that of the late Freddie Mercury. Being one myself, I assure that “little monsters” around the globe would go absolutely gaga, for Gaga to sing with the Queen that came before this fabulous Queen.
