One word: Fug.
Three more to add: Trying too hard
25 words : Poor hotel will never get rid of that pink glitter no matter how hard they try.. they will still be finding it 6 months later.
Steffi, have considered a new shtick?
You know what I think would be really radical for her? Jeans, a white shirt, and her real hair.
She just sings.
I love Adele, but I don’t think it’s a fair comparison because they’re completely different. One’s an entertainer who dances, while the other is just a singer, albeit an amazing singer. I’m fine with entertainers being outlandish as long it looks well put together, but Gaga hasn’t looked so well put together these days.
Oh that is classic! I don’t even thing Lady Gaga sings anymore. She just roasts herself on a spit and lets people vomit on her. Thank goodness for Adele and her pipes!
Saddest thing is that Steffi can actually sing; she’s just abandoned singing for gimmickry and fug.
Sing and play instruments. Coupled with her writing skills she should be a triple threat, but I think she’s too in her own head & trying to hard to shock. I wish she’d just pull back and focus on the music instead of making statements and being a spectacle.
I don’t think she’s the best lyricist, although she does know how to write a catchy hook. As I said in the last Gaga post, I think she needs to find a co-writer/producer who is to her what Patrick Leonard was to Madonna. Then I think she would be great. But sadly, I think it might be too late. Her head seems to be so far up her own arse that it’s irretrievable
I wonder when Gaga has time to write songs and record music with all her costume changes and street appearances.
I think she’s trying to get some interest in a cd that basically flopped.
Actually kind of digging the second look – it’s almost like a throwback to her “Just Dance”/”Poker Face” era. LOVE the platform rainbow creepers.
I hate those shoes, BUT they’re at least interesting, and not a potential cause of her falling and breaking her neck.
The second look had potential if only she hadn’t added platform on the creepers. They no look like bumper cars.
But it looks sweat-inducing. Bra stank.
How are her feet not completely covered in bunions and corns right now?
She’s probably wearing thick ass socks a la Beyonce.
I’m sure it took her 45 minutes to walk 3 feet in the first and last looks. I just can not. The more ridiculousness I see from her, the more embarrassed I am that I was once a fan (but never a “monster”, even then).
Her first album was pure pop fun. And then she got famous and wanted to be taken seriously as an “artist” and it was the beginning of the end. Still listen to the fame monster all the time. She is just another one in a long line of promising artists who lose all their charm when they become famous
True. Her second album had some good songs in their too–though nothing that hit the radio. The only song that seemed to get anything from this last album was “Applause.”
I couldn’t really listen to her music after her first album because who she was as a person got in the way if that makes sense
Totally. I have that problem with Miley and a few other artists, despite their skill as singers. On the other hand, who they are as a person sometimes inspires me to seek out artists I would normally ignore.
I just didn’t like how she tried to become Miss gay rights and her whole monsters thing and stirring shit up. She just came off as try hard and insincere
That did rub a lot of people the wrong way. I didn’t like how, despite being so into her fans, she was unable to corral them when they became overzealous.
The second and third looks are cute, but that wig is God awful. In fact, almost all of her wigs this era have been awful. Did her stylist get them at a Party City clearance sale or something? And I wish she would stop hobbling herself with those shoes.
Go back to Party City where you belong, bitch!
Her theatricality has been getting soooo predictable for awhile now. It’s old, it’s ineffective.
I guess her mom never taught her to keep her name off her accessories — you know, stranger danger.
So over this crap.
“Excuse me, they spelled “CaCa” wrong on your purse.”
The were going for “GAG”, but accidentally stitched an extra “A” on.
She has talent. It seems almost a shame that she thinks she has to resort to these costumes to get attention. She looks ridiculous.
I am so over her. She needs to re-invent herself pronto.
Gaga, you’re boring. Go home.
I feel almost bad for her, because no one cares anymore. Tough life, Gagaloo!
With those heels, I think it’ll be rather difficult for Gay Matador Gaga to keep from being gored by the bull when the Picadors aren’t stabbing it.
do the platform heels come with an instruction book or do you just pray you don’t fall and break something?
YAWN. And the ridiculous platform heels are back.
I thought they were moon shoes.
Whereas in the normal shoes of yesterday’s post, she was tilting. She must use the ridiculous platforms to improve her posture, because clearly you couldn’t lean in them without breaking an ankle.
From ugly performance art to just ugly.
Does she do anything anymore besides walking around places?
She looks like a Gelfling. Sorry Steffi, when it comes to 80’s Henson, people liked Labyrinth more. Move on.
That last outfit has convinced me that she secretly wants to be a My Little Pony.
I do believe her fifteen minutes is finally, mercifully, up.
I find it sad because I do think there’s raw talent in there, although not as much as she thinks she has. I wish Katy Perry’s 15 minutes would be up first because she has a lot less talent, but I think you’re right that Gaga is the first to go.
I agree with you completely!
I love that she’s holding onto her hat strap in one hand and her wig in another in the last outfit. If you have to grab onto that many parts of your outfit, you may need to rethink your outfit.
You know I applaud her for so forcefully making the point that high fashion does not equal style and that high fashion designers love to put out the sweet sweet crack. That said please go away for several months and possibly stay there.
Most Gaga watchers are SO over those shoes. She just looks plain stoopid in these!!! I would pay to see a video of her falling off these platforms. (I’m really not a bitch, I swear!)
It’s actually happened a few times. At least once was when she was at LAX. The *first* time that happened should have been a warning to retire those shoes.
I wish I had the courage of my convictions and would NOT click on any link to anything about her. She is such a try-hard and I shouldn’t encourage by giving her the attention she so frantically needs.
What is that second outfit? Though she probably walks better in those shoes than in the other ones.
I remain, as always, impressed by how she commits to the idea. The idea may be insane and a very very bad idea, but she commits to it like a boss.
Is it wrong of me to wish for a broken ankle and a wig mishap?..
Not with that username!
If they did a remake of “Misery”, Kathy Bates’ character could hobble James Caan by making him wear these shoes.
I actually have two different pairs of shoes that would go with that pink sparkle outfit. Tradesies?
I wish the pink sparkly one fit better. It’s actually kinda fabulous.
I have compassion for her. I have compassion for her handler, too. I wonder if the money he could make writing a tell-all would sufficiently cover the lawsuit for breach of confidentiality… I cannot imagine what it would be like to be in her employ…
I wonder if she’s like this behind closed doors and when the photographers are gone. Her bf seems to be a “normal” guy; does she ever just do “normal” as well?
Seriously, what is wrong with her? This is just stupid looking.
The sparkly pink pants suit at least has an “Effie Trinket” vibe. But again, the hair ruins everything.
I LOVE Effie Trinket!
I FINALLY watched both Hunger Games this past weekend. I never read the books. The movies were great! And I thought Elizabeth Banks did an awesome job as Effie. I liked Woody Harrelson, too.
I didn’t read the books either, but now I can’t wait for the next movie installment. Both actors were great in this, so much fun to see them. The costumes were fun, especially Effie’s.
You know, she’s been getting a lot of flak lately, and been accused of being an attention whore, but if someone gave me millions of dollars and told me I could wear whatever I wanted, you best believe I would grab the weirdest shit I could find and slap it on my body. Life is short, why not spend it wearing an entire outfit made of sparkly…whatever textile that is. It’s just the way the entertainment business works these days. You have to have some sort of attention pull or no one will remember you. People bring up Adele but when’s the last time we saw her out and about? Does anyone know what she’s even up to? And in a world where sometimes it feels like no one even tries, I’d much rather see a try-hard that misses the mark than someone who plays it boring and safe. Sure Gaga could put on a simple pair of jeans and a T-shirt, but if you’re Lady-Fucking-Gaga I expect you to bring the spectacle. She always brightens my day, whether I’m oooh-ing and aaah-ing over the pretty, or scratching my head in confusion, or laughing at how terrible everything is. She is an entertainer and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Does anyone know what she’s (Adele) even up to?”
My guess is writing and recording music, not attention whoring in ridiculous outfits.
I, for one, am not entertained.
This is fashion. This is couture. You all are just a bunch of middle class, middle-aged h8rs :^)
And you, I suppose, are the Queen of France. This is not couture by anyone’s standards. It’s costumed theatricality.
I was joking.
Thank you for that, then. I took it seriously (because some people really think that), but now your sarcasm is duly noted and appreciated.
My apologies. I thought the stupid emoticon would convey my meaning. That’s what I get for being middle-aged. BTW: Did you see the rant that some overzealous fanboy left in yesterday’s Gaga post? It’s high-larious.
No need for apology, JR. Oh yes, I did see that post, and I thought he was back.
I’ve got to get all the emoticons straight, but it’s hard — I really am middle-aged (and middle class).
We need a sarcasm font, TLo!
Oh please. You know, I always thought her boyfriend (Taylor Kinney) was a regular guy (I mean, he LOOKS like a regular guy) until I found out he was her boyfriend. Now I realize he must be a whacko too.
Triple NOPE. Why does her stuff look so cheap these days. It all looks slapped together with none of the artistry or humor of her earlier efforts.
In the first shot, she appears to have just exited from a door with a sign on it that reads DANGER RADIATION.
THIS EXPLAINS EVERYTHING.
I feel you, dude in the red and black checkered scarf. I feel you.
He must be a fan, or an attention whore himself, since he appears in the first and the third costume changes. (I hope it’s ok to point that out about a civilian – it’s just that he doesn’t appear to be an innocent bystander who happened to be caught by the cameras.)
I love that they’re denying her by putting her in the Whiteboard ghetto.
How has she not broken her ankle yet? All of those shoes are aggressively ugly. The outfits kind of work (only on Gaga, in full on “in-your-face-weird” mode), but the shoes make me cringe.
The top one makes me think John Lennon and Yoko Ono have merged into one.
Love me some Yoko… La Gags… not so much
My feelings, in three points:
1. cool, maybe?
3. She should have matched her shoes too but it’s by far the best of the three.
I look & I look & then I just feel stupid b/c all I can think is “seriously?”
Reminds me of a Bonnie Tyler song from the 80’s that said “They’re getting so excited, but I’m just getting bored.”
What else is new?
Her hat has a handle. ridic.
Honey, when I spend more time admiring your handlers than even looking at you, you’ve gone very very wrong as a star.
The last one kinda looks like an ode to Jem, so I’ll give it a pass (though those shoes are ugly and worrisome). Everything else is ridiculous as usual.
Back to being the lady Gagme I know and don’t love. One day, perhaps her “reinvention” of self will be a stripped-down version of who she was before she left her humanhood behind. Until then, yawn…
Looking good HBH, especially in the pinstripes!
Oh, and Steffi’s there too. Foolishness. Though I do have a sneaking suspicion that my life would be more complete with an orchid sparkly pantsuit.
Now, I would go to Easter Sunday service if I could wear that hat and that crazy orchid pantsuit-and have a pair of studly handlers to escort he to the pew.
Out and about? More like teetering and tottering. This is all gimcrack and flapdoodle.
If her goal was Edgar Winter in drag, she definitely scored…
Oh my, you’re right.
Love the photobomb in the first pic. That guy wins the internet today in my book!
This all just seems kinda sad– she is trying too hard now to get attention and it shows unfortunately.
Well, we’re back to the usual. Sigh. If she’s just give up the death shoes, I could try and appreciate these outfits.
typical Gaga! Yawn! Now get some more pics of her body guard thats is her best .
I can appreciate the vision with my gaga goggles on, Gotta give credit to her costume designer(s).
I never thought I could diagnose a personality disorder just through pictures until I saw Lady Gaga.
I am almost able to say that I’m over it. I’ll NEVER be able to say I’m over “The Fame” or “The Fame Monster” and even some of “Applause” (I pretend that “Born This Way” didn’t happen), because the first two were SO FUN and Applause has a few that I appreciate, but the “fashion” has lost me. Her concerts have been some of the most AMAZING performances I’ve seen (Sara Bareilles and Elton John put up a GREAT fight) but I could do without her self-importance at the moment.
Why does that hat have a handle? It looks like she’s wearing a giant drag queen’s ping pong paddle on her head.
Madonna did it better.
I really want to see video of her walking in those shoes. She can’t possibly be graceful.
I’m really sad that I’m over her. I wanted so much not to be.
She’s reminding me more and more of a cross between Tiny Tim and Yoko Ono, but with exponentially worse & dumber shoes than either ever dreamt possible. I am a micron from crossing the line into permanently bored with her public persona. (Not that she cares, she hasn’t founded her career or made her money from the likes of me.)
The breastplate outfit is hideous. The other two are hilarious/fabulous.
Forget Gaga. Find that guy in the upper right corner of the first shot and give him a fashion photo shoot! I want to know more about HIM.
I love the rainbow Doc Martins-looking shoes
That’s a cheap-ass wig there, Steffi.
I mean it’s probably an expensive as fuck wig but it looks like shit.
One day someone who couldn’t give two shits is going to tell her that all this attention seeking is having the opposite effect. This sort of stunt dressing only works if you don’t do it all the time. I’m tired of her.
I instantly thought of Gandalf the White for the first one.
I don’t know if that’s a testament to my nerdiness or her strange fashion..
One word, Asshat!
She’s comming to Las Vegas in august….yes august.
Lady Gaga – giving old school circa 1970 pimps a run for their money in the ticky-tacky over the top, ridiculous shoes and hats department.
