Lady Gaga sleeps with a full face of makeup, fake eyelashes


The Sun UK just pointed this out – Lady Gaga posted the above photo with the message, “Haven’t left the studio. Each song I write, I feel closer to you. Miss you little monsters, little inspirations. X.” Yes, it’s a little barfy and cloying, but that’s Gaga, the Stuart Smiley of pop stars. What bothers me more is that this is Gaga “resting”. She has a full face of makeup, and she’s wearing her false eyelashes to bed! What the hell? How she sleep like that? I feel weird going to bed without washing my face, and Gaga can do it with falsies and lipstick?

Also – I mentioned this in the links the other day, but Gaga is set to break some records for with her tour, Monsters Ball. She’s been on tour for forever, and she’s making a ton of money of it. Enough to buy her unlimited diamond-encrusted lobster headpieces, to infinity:

There’s a reason Lady Gaga doesn’t ever seem to want to wrap up her globe-trotting Monster Ball Tour: It’s a moneymaking machine.

Billboard is reporting that, by the time the curtain finally falls on the Ball — which kicked off in November 2009 and is scheduled to run until at least April 2011 — it will have grossed nearly $200 million worldwide.

It’s a huge number, to be sure, and it’s more proof that Gaga has ascended to the upper echelon of touring acts. In 2009, U2′s 360 Tour was the year’s top-grossing jaunt, raking in more than $300 million, according to Billboard. Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour was at #2, with receipts of more than $220 million. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band landed at #3, grossing more than $156 million.

In the nearly 10 months it’s been on the road, Gaga’s Monster Ball has made stops in North America, Europe, the U.K., Asia and Australia. And a spokesperson for Live Nation Entertainment, which produced U2′s and Madonna’s tours — and also serves as the producer on the Monster Ball — told Billboard that Gaga’s tremendous touring success only serves as further proof that she’s arrived on the scene and has seized the public’s consciousness.

“It’s an opportunity,” Live Nation global touring chairman Arthur Fogel said. “As an artist with that kind of talent and vision emerges, it creates a lot of excitement, and ticket sales worldwide demonstrate that people are really excited to see the show.

“Over the course of the next many months, we’re trying to play to as many people in as many places as possible,” he added. “It’s an across-the-board home run.”

I’ve heard time and time again that for musicians, touring is the best way to make money. The way the studio and album process works, artists aren’t making that much from sales of their records, unless the get some sweetheart deal, like Mariah Carey. To become rich rock stars, they have to go on tour. And it’s not even the ticket sales that drive an artist’s profits – it’s the t-shirts and all of the vending that goes on. Oh, well – I’m glad Gaga is making so much money. Even if it comes at the respect of Janice Dickinson.

    I like Gaga’s music and from what I’ve seen of her on shows and in clips from people at her concerts, she can actually sing. I’m not obsessed with her and I don’t think she’s some artistic genius. She found a shtick that works for her and is milking that to the last damn drop, so good for her. I’m going to her concert in February and I expect it will be a really fun show.

  2. poopie says:

    I love the way people criticize gaga’s singing; they are prob the same who think JLO, J. Simpson, Britney, Avril, can sing ! HA !

    TEAM GAGA!!!!!!

  3. kelbear says:

    That is the best she has ever looked(in the top pic).

  4. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I don’t think she was sleeping with her makeup on. I think she took the picture for her Twitter followers and Facebook fans which I am of both. Also she was at the studio and we know Gaga is dressed to the nines everyday so she would have makeup on. Which I can’t fall asleep in makeup either, but I am not Lady Gaga and I am not trying maintain fabulousity everyday. LOL

  5. Karen says:

    Katie, I became a fan after last fall’s MTV Awards and while I wasn’t obsessed with her then, I saw her show in Toronto in July and have become totally obsessed. You will have a great time. She is hella talented and gracious and remains in character as she battles the “Fame Monster”. With any other artist, I would be like, “Bitch, stop playing” but it works with Gaga.

    Ah, regarding sleeping with full makeup. I don’t wear a ton of it anyway but when I fall asleep after creating a smoky eye, I won’t lie and tell you that I didn’t wash it off and head to work the next morning. Why is next day smoky eye better than it looks the minute you finish applying it???

  6. SallyJay says:

    HOWWWWWWWWW can these people walk in those heel-less shoes, can someone explain to me please? Victoria Beckham has worn them too….I am perplexed!

  7. Cam says:

    I really like her music, it’s very catchy. I’ve never seen her live but I’m sure she can sing, and her shows are amazing, no doubt. I’m really happy to hear that the tour is going awesome, cause that means that it is possible for us South Americans to be part of it as well (Hope that’s the case, let’s cross our fingers).

    And about the make up: She must be used to it, going to sleep with fake eyelashes and everything, I mean. Me? I cannot go to sleep if I have eyeliner still on, it’s just uncomfortable and I feel like my pillow’s gonna have black stains when I wake up.

  8. RHONYC says:


    loves the ‘desert-bouffant’ do!

    wonderful pic girl. :-)

  9. LindyLou says:

    I wouldn’t want to wash her sheets if that’s how she sleeps every night. Yuck.
    SallyJay – I always think the same thing when I see her with those shoes. Mind you, there are photos of her falling on her face while wearing them.

  10. BarbieMiller says:

    I loved Lady Gaga, still love her music, she’s very talented. but since seeing her on a youtube clip where she just looks drugged out of her mind. I have lost much respect for the artist.

  11. annaloo says:

    Long live Gaga… for so long , I just got sickened with every Britney version 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 molded pop starlet out there….put a pretty girl in a studio, auto-tune her voice & give her some dance steps…BLAH!Boring.

    Gaga has vision and talent. I will not, could not bag on her.

    I’d put her in the same echelon of performers as Tori Amos, Karen O, Alicia Keys : unique, and the real deal for talent.

  12. The_Porscha says:

    Thank you, Katie (#1), for having the most realistic fanship of Lady Gaga I’ve ever heard. I think part of what bothers me so much about Gaga is not even her, it’s that my friends who are fans are obsessing over her like she’s the second coming. She’s just a musician, guys, relax.

  13. wonderful says:

    The caption under the pic clearly says she has not left the studio, therefore she is not at home in bed. Probably curled up with some pillows in the studio. This is getting ridiculous.

  14. M says:

    Before I was questioning the Doomsday… After gaga I’m sure it is coming!

  15. aloha says:

    She doesnt sleep or go to the beach in her make up.
    But maybe she should, since she really needs it as anyone who has seen the make up-free GaGa pics can atest.

  16. KellyBrynn says:


    you know john lennon was also just a musician. michael jackson too. the difference is we are a nation of icons, and when a musician comes out and represents themselves as an icon of something, people can relate. and i think lady gaga has tapped into that part of american culture that’s been dying for some in-your-face iconic performance art.

    i completely understand why some people don’t like her, but for now she’s popular and she will make a huge impact in the music industry, whether people see her as a flash in the pan or not.

    and if your friends see her as the second coming, is there really any harm? if they saw dr. laura or rush limbaugh as the second coming, then we’d be in an entirely different (horrible) predicament.

  17. Katija says:

    @ Karen

    Oh, I totes respectfully disagree. When I go to sleep with a smokey eye (liquor is always involved when that happens), the next morning I look like a Britney-Lindsay cracktastic disaster.

  18. mollination says:

    Yeah, agree with @Angelina. DOn’t think she probably really sleeps with falsies on, but even if she did I can’t blame her. Homegirl is probably so beat she just passes out on her bed at the end of the day/night.

  19. Karen says:

    @ Katija

    Perhaps I’m always still drunk from the night before and if I were sober, I wouldn’t think I looked so grand. *Making mental note for next work-week drinking binge*

  20. Kiska says:

    I like Gaga. She has talent and can sing.

  21. Cali says:

    Did she get a nose job? It looks totally different.

  22. Bill Hicks is God says:

    The States is a nation of icons because its a nation of icon-makers. When people come right out of the gate presenting themselves as icons its eaten up with a spoon.

    Who should be an icon just because they wear fetish wear out in the street? Worse, Who would want to be considered iconic for something so unsubstantial?

    Elvis and John Wayne for example are icons because they represent something in the collective American psyche that is valued and held as important and special in terms of defining who they are as a nation and a people.

    If Ga Ga is representing something in the American psyche, the psyche better get its ass on The Couch and analyzed.

  23. SashaVice says:

    She looks like Marilyn Manson, especially in the pic where she’s laying back in the sunglasses

  24. gg says:

    I seriously doubt she sleeps with all the slap on. The same as I would seriously doubt she would take a photo of herself actually waking up au naturel. In short, it’s a posed picture, what a concept.

    Re the hooves, the boots are cantilevered and weighted and I would assume they take quite some getting used to.

  25. skeptical says:

    Gaga can sing. She’s got pipes! But she’s not the Second Coming.

    I do respect her hard work ethic. She goes all out. Growing up in a tiny community theater I did occasionally see a type of person who absolutely loved the stage. These people thrive on the energy of making an audience happy, and having that audience cheer from that happiness. These people worked their butts off for their audience. They wanted to DESERVE to be cheered at and they loved it so much when they got that applause.

    I think Gaga may be someone like that. She inhabits the Gaga personality. She doesn’t take days off. She lives, breathes, eats and sleeps her performance. That’s serious work there.

    I respect her.

  26. Cakes says:

    I own some of her music. I had a friend who was a die hard gaga fan and he was borderline obsessive. Its like she could do no wrong. I like her music and she does bust her ass but Im not getting sucked into the hype of the gaga.

  27. Uh says:


    …actually, JLO and Britney really cannot sing. I know someone who worked with them both, and he is a miracle worker, but honest – they cannot sing.

    Do you have any idea how many studio tricks there are, how many musical processors for your average no-talent? Autotune is JUST the tip of the iceberg.

  28. ChinaCat says:

    Dont like her or her “music.” I think she is just gross and I wish she would go away

  29. Lila says:

    At least she can sing and play an instrument. She’s not just a silly sex kitten. She has style and personality.
    So I like her better than the rest.

  30. Liana says:

    I like some of her music, but I’m not a fan of the artifice she has created. And I have no desire to be a little monster.

  31. trashaddict says:

    Read the Vanity Fair profile on her. I’m sure she’s very talented, but the woman is a total nut-job. It will not go well when the Build-em-Up, Tear-them-Down celebrity cycle ends.

  32. Holly says:

    Am I the only one that thinks she’s utterly ridiculous? What exactly is she doing thats so artistic? Her music consists of the same melodic notes played again and again and again. Are her lyrics ahead of our time? Are they poetry? And seriously, she’s NOT designing her own costumes. While I’ll admit they’re an art form, it probably takes an entire crew to put the idea in motion. She’s got nothing to do with it. So she can sing. Ok. How does that alone set her apart from any other singer?

  33. Jenny says:

    …and still looks like the piece of talentless sh** “she” is.
