Lady Gaga Heads to Yoga Class in Toronto

Posted on July 09, 2014

Because sure. That’s how one dresses for yoga.

Taylor Swift has thrown down the gauntlet this summer with her “Empty Purse & Sidewalk” tour,  and now everyone will be entering and exiting their gyms in the most ridiculous getups. Brace yourselves. It’s only going to get more ridiculous. Then again, wearing a wig to yoga may just be the pinnacle of ridiculous.

We dig the kimono, but it’s a shame to see it dragging on the wet pavement like that. We can’t really get behind the Edith Head head, though. That’s not your look, dear.

    this is embarrassing.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      The first word that came to me was “tragic”.

  • RussellH88

    This is Dollar Store Manila Luzon.

    • demidaemon

      Truer words were never said.

  • TheBrett

    It’s Gaga, though. If there aren’t any papparazi around with cameras in the actual yoga practice room, she’d probably just do it naked.

  • Lolo Andre

    She’s insufferable

  • I love those sunnies tho.

  • Paigealicious

    That wig is so horrible.

  • MilaXX

    The only thing I like here are the sunglasses.

  • Ashleigh

    seriously!! Like she doesn’t have taller shoes so that beautiful work of art wasn’t dragging thru the mud!

  • Beto

    Just don’t know what to say.

    • Cara

      I do, but it’s unprintable.

  • Denise Rambo

    She is just too weird for me.

  • bessann28

    Hilarious. Oh, Gaga.

  • frannyprof

    OMG–Gaga’s trying to out-troll Taylor Swift!

  • DKBB

    You totally won my heart with your Edith Head remark…god, I loved her!!

    • Beardslee

      Me too! Oh to be dressed by Edith Head…

    • kimmeister

      I’ll bet they’ve been dying to bust out “Head head” in a post.

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      I gasped when I saw the Edith Head reference! It was spot on! How very TLo.

      My God, that woman could design a gown. Absolutely gorgeous. Wonder if she won any Oscars for her work?

      • DKBB

        Nominated 24 times, won 7 times.

        • Coolekat

          I love people who answer questions. Thank you!

        • TheDivineMissAnn

          Wow. Just… wow! She deserved them, to be sure.

          Thanks for doing my homework for me.

      One year for Christmas when I was about 10 years old I got one of those dolls that is just a giant head and neck, with long hair you’re supposed to style and make-up that you can smear all over the head’s face. I named her Edith Head because I was a precocious child with a twisted sense of humor. I spent quite a few years enjoying her company, fixing her hair and doing all kinds of weird makeup art on her face. Her hair was synthetic, of course, so over time I was forced to keep cuting it until it was nothing but a pixie. I also performed a series of dye jobs on her with magic markers to stunning effect. Edith was lots of fun.

      I stored her at my dad’s house when I got married and left home, but then my dad’s house burned down and Edith Head perished in the flames, unable to get up off her neck and flee to safety. It was a sad day. Poor Edith Head.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        What a great plaything and companion Edith Head was for you! She lives on in your memory

  • Anna


    And I have to say it’s cool to see my hood on T Lo. Although I am sad that Steroid Picard didn’t accompany her here so I can camp out at the intersection where this yoga studio is at and I can accidentally-on purpose run into him.

    • Diane

      I had the same thought- she’s like 2 blocks from my place! I wonder why she’s up there though, surely she must be staying further south rather than up in Yorkville. Whatever.

      • Anna

        I could see her staying at the Park Hyatt, although I am surprised she specifically went to that area to do yoga. I figured she’d have something private set up. Maybe she’s been there before.

        Or she wants to compete with Tay Tay for the Summer 2014 Sidewalk-Workout Tour. And now I’ve spent far too much time thinking about this.

        • Sonja

          Where is this? It’s bothering me that I can’t figure it out.

          • Anna

            She’s at Yonge and Charles, south of Bloor.

          • Sonja

            Of course! I should have recognized the sketchy porn shop in the background. Er, I mean…

  • Danielle

    Lady Gaga channels Pumpkin the geisha. Did you know she only smokes Chesterfields now?

  • Emily Smith

    She could have at least worn the appropriate footwear (geta) at the appropriate height to keep the kimono off the ground.

    • boweryboy

      I know, right? Now is the time for her to employ those hideous sky high heels she’s so attached to.

      • Emily Smith

        I mean this woman has never seen a horrendously high precarious platform she hasn’t liked. Have some custom 5″ tall getas made and toddle in to yoga like a faux geisha.

    • shiibaru

      or closed it the correct way (left over right, so that it looks like a “y”)…

  • j regan p

    Impersonating an asian woman? She’s such a freak. Why can’t you be famous for your own talents? Why go around ‘dressing up’ as something you’re not? Are you afraid of what and who you really are? What’s so wrong with Stefani Germanotta?

  • quiltrx

    The only thing I’m putting thought into about these pictures is…where is my Hot Bald Handler? We need Steroid Picard! This guy looks like NO fun.

  • Amelia Ross

    i like to imagine under that she’s in lululemon

  • @Biting Panda

    She’s dragging a gorgeous piece of fabric, on a wet and nasty street. For that alone, she deserves a bitch slapping.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Way to ruin a gorgeous silk kimono.

    • marlie

      I said the *same* thing.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Great minds think alike! 😉

  • Gatto Nero

    Drifting along in a world of her own making.

  • Noah

    She’s such a fucking asshole.

    • @Biting Panda


  • Judy_J

    I really hate that she’s dragging the hem of that gorgeous kimono across wet, filthy pavement. Way to go, Gaga.

  • Joanna

    Yawn. What message is she even trying to convey anymore? I am not impressed or outraged or even curious about her next look anymore. I am indifferent, which is likely the exact opposite reaction she is attempting to elicit.

  • majorbedhead

    It must be exhausting to be her.

  • I miss the hot ginger handler she used to employ. 🙁

    • Denise Alden

      We all do, darling. We all do.

  • Sarah

    Shoes are nice? That’s all I got. Give me your kimono, Gaga. I shall wear it indoors, on a fainting couch, where it belongs.

    • @Biting Panda

      I will whisper all my commands to my children, in this kimono.

    • KES4K

      I was thinking outdoors on a lanai in a breezy tropical location, but either way, drink in hand and NO UGLY WIGS ALLOWED.

      • Sarah

        True DAT.

  • This kimono must be mine. I promise I won’t drag it on the street like that.

  • boweryboy

    I cringed when I noticed the kimono was dragging on the dirty sidewalk. I hope it’s not on loan. Also, she looks ridiculous as per usual.

  • Rhonda Shore

    It’s actually the least ridiculous i’ve seen her look in some time.

  • ChelseaNH

    Oh, I see the problem: She’s not hobbling herself with six inch platform soles. That would keep the kimono from dragging.

  • TinyDynamo

    Way to try to one up RiRi – and fail. Miserably.

    Although I kinda wonder if once inside, she sheds this costume & is so unnoticeable as a regular person that she can do yoga in peace?

    • Coolekat

      Someone with her gigantic need to be noticed couldn’t go incognito for five minutes.

  • Alyssa

    It is a travesty that such a beautiful kimono is dragging the streets and getting rained on. Now is the time to deploy umbrella holders and hoof shoes!

    • marlie

      A wig, and full makeup.

      • Alyssa

        I could understand the makeup under certain circumstances. I go to the gym at lunch, so I’m usually wearing makeup. Or if she went after a lunch date or something. But if it was just to go to yoga, then that’s silly. Of course, absurd is a usual adjective I use with Gaga, so no surprise there.

        • marlie

          You’re right. I guess I just assume that the the normal day-to-day doesn’t apply to Gaga, and she’s not squeezing in the gym during her lunch break or after work like we mortals.

  • queeniethebold

    She is so stupid. And lame. And tired.

    i am sick unto death of her. Just go away for a while. Please.

  • Denise Alden

    That smile seems kind of demented, doesn’t it?

  • Constant Reader

    Ugh. Can you imagine being her yoga teacher or a fellow student? It would be an hour and a half of Gaga demanding attention like a toddler. Way to ruin a good yoga buzz.

  • decormaven

    Is it a wig with wings? Then fly away, little troll.

  • Skippymom1

    Where’s the obi? And shouldn’t her feet be bound?

  • marlie

    STOP IT. And way to ruin a beautiful kimono.

  • Monica

    An uncharacteristically lazy choice for her: throw on a kimono and safety-pin it closed. (I mean literally! You can see where it’s pinned!)
    It’s like finding a fabric you like and draping a bolt of it over your shoulder.

    • Monica

      Also, the kimono’s dragging because it’s meant to be tucked and folded up into an obi. I’m not saying she has to wear a kimono the traditional way (because fashion), but she sure didn’t do anything interesting to it, either.

  • Shawn EH

    I give up. She still scores cute handlers, though.

  • GeoDiva

    People like her don’t go to a yoga class, the instructor go to them in their hotel suite.

  • kimmeister

    That kimono is so voluminous, it looks like she has it draped over a huge cardboard box.

    • @Biting Panda

      I hate it when my kimono gives me linebacker shoulders.

      • kimmeister

        That reminds me, I have a kimono or 2 that I haven’t used in years. I will dig them out and wear them around the house, looking fabulous, in protest.

  • GoryDetails

    Is that a skunk pinned to her head?

  • Tracy_Flick

    Her bodyguard is orange. Bring back Hot Ginger Handler!

  • Dreamwr8tr


  • MightyMarshal

    I smell…desperation. And it’s REEKING. Gaga went the way of Paris Hilton and burnt her star out super fast.

  • crash1212

    Cannot believe she’s dragging what I’m sure is a silk kimono through the rain soaked sidewalk. Where the hell is her hem holder and her umbrella handler? I am happy to see that she has shoes she can maneuver without assistance. Love the sunglasses. Otherwise…yawn.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    “Lady Gaga heads to a yoga class on her day off before her concert at The Air Canada Centre in Toronto.”
    She sings?

    I’m sure she puts on and takes off her wigs like hats. It isn’t like she makes the effort to cover her hair.

  • dash1211

    I’m so over her.

  • demidaemon

    Like Taylor Swift at the gym, I am officially at “I can’t.”

  • nannypoo

    She’s an ass. The kimono is beautiful and deserves better than this.

  • Laylalola

    I actually like this if she means it as satire of Taylor Swift.

  • what not

    I expect more from her. Not better, just more: lululemon straitjacket or yoga pants with spikes or something. Not a kimono and silly glasses.

  • fromanotherplanet

    Lady Gaga trying and failing at being Lady Gaga. Hilarious. And that unmoisturized wig on her head is literally on tippy toes. I just cannot. Not right now.

  • Imasewsure

    I kind of love the Edith Head head…that being said… yikes gurl… we’re sick of you

  • Jecca2244

    i’m just really over this.

  • beebee10

    Where’s your Ginger Man?

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    The kimono is such lovely fabric, I wish it could have been hemmed so that it isn’t dragging the ground. Although Gaga’s head does remind me of Edith Head it reminds me more of SCTV’s Edith Prickley in “Prickley Heat”

    • @Biting Panda

      Now, bitch can’t wear her stupid, sky-high, shoes?

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Word-isn’t this the time to be wearing a pair of her shooves?

  • swissgirl

    “That’s how one dresses for yoga.” Well that’s how GAGA dresses for yoga. What else would you expect? I have to admit it, I adore her, everything about her, may she never ever change. I wish she was my daughter!

  • thesevenendless

    Fresh New Yoga Styles from the Capitol!

  • cat772

    Doesn’t she get tired of all the work on these get ups? I want to see her in jeans and a tee.

    • Lamont Cranston

      She posts pictures of herself in regular clothes on facebook all the time.

  • Tricia

    I’m starting to hate her face. A+ on appropriating Japanese culture.

  • Phyllis Craine

    Did a minion carry her yoga mat?

  • Coolekat

    Letting that beautiful fabric drag on the ground – that ground especially – makes me sick.

  • WHO the F cares!

  • deech_sea

    Why no obi?

  • Richard

    I mean, wearing a kimono to yoga is really smart because her normal gym clothes could be underneath. Those sunglasses are amazing. That wig though..and the Swan Lake feathers are troubling.

    • Richard

      I mean, they probably aren’t feathers, but that’s all I can think about.

      • suzq

        They’re feathers.

  • d4divine

    She’s smiling and she looks happy. Gaga likes to dress in character and she doesn’t care what others think about it. I like that about her.

  • MoHub

    The kimono is not only too big; it’s lapped the wrong way. A kimono laps left over right. And it needs an obi, stat!

    She needs to be hauled before whatever the Japanese equivalent is of an Anti-Defamation League.

  • BitterOldQueen

    Oh give a crazy gal a break! The dragging kimono is a pity, of course, but overall I actually like this look. The kimono is a nice f-you departure from her usual skin display (“Don’t like me showing my ass all the time? Well then love me in a baggy kimono!”), and I’m actually really sorta into the feathery back-headband and the excellent (obviously unnecessary) sunglasses. Edith Head? Whatever; it’s Gaga swinging away from a how-ugly-and-ridiculous-can-I-be toward something interesting and, well, kinda pretty.

  • catsonmars28

    It pains me to see her wearing a kimono this way… You’re supposed to tuck it up under the obi so it doesn’t drag on the ground like that! And if I remember correctly, the way she has it folded in the front (with the left side tucked under the right side) is only supposed to be worn that way for funerals! Ugh.

    • Maria Photinakis

      You only wear it that way if you are the deceased themselves. “Backwards” is for a dead person.

  • Maria Photinakis

    Yeah, you don’t hem a kimono to get it to the right length – they are almost always VERY long when not “done” — you fold the fabric up into the obi (belt, for lack of better term) and adjust a zillion times until the kimono is at the correct length, ankle height. Disrespect to the kimono is just one part of it, in terms of how it’s dragging. The other is it’s not even “done” properly; clearly that wasn’t the intent here anyway.
    (And unless you are actually dead, kimono are always left over right and not right over left… but again, most of this kimono is just totally wrong anyway.)

    • catsonmars28

      My mother was a very superstitious person, she would’ve taken this as a “death omen” for the person wearing their kimono this way.

      At least she looks comfy? The times that I’ve been forced into a kimono, when the person dressing me notices that I can still breathe, they take it as a sign that they didn’t tie it tight enough.

  • Columbinia

    Everything TLo said.

    The amount of effort Gaga puts into what to wear while crossing the pavement from door to car is mind numbing.

  • HM3

    EVEN THOUGH I can barely see the entire shoe, that is the most sensible footwear I’ve seen her in thus far.

  • Ali2044

    I sometimes thinks she wears these ensembles as a form of disguise so if she ever wants to do anything in unwashed hair and sweatpants, no one would have a clue it was her.

  • rottenkitty

    Ruining a gorgeous kimono, bad wig, bad sunglasses, and really, to go to yoga? This is filled with an awesome amount of fail. Also, I’m weary beyond belief by her.
