Is Lady Gaga worried that Miley Cyrus out-stunt- queened her at the VMAs?

Here are some new photos of Lady Gaga arriving in London. Literally, this is what she wore on the plane and these are pics of Gaga arriving at Heathrow. She pretty much flew to London the day after the VMAs – she has some shows in London and she’ll be doing some press for her new album. Am I supposed to be shocked by her outfit? It’s not shocking. At all. And I think it’s funny that she keeps wearing that one great wig – looks like she doesn’t really want to be “grotesque” after all. She wants to be pretty and wear her pretty, flattering wig and have everyone admire her body. Which is fine, except that she promised to be more, didn’t she? She promised to be a true ARTIST.

Isn’t it surprising that we’re really not talking about Gaga’s performance at the VMAs at all? Gaga was barely mentioned in yesterday’s coverage. Over the weekend, when Bedhead and CB and I were trying to figure out our coverage before the VMAs aired, I honestly thought Gaga would be the most controversial person there, I thought her performance would be the most talked-about. But that was before Miley Cyrus and the tongue of doom and the twerking of nothingness. Miley’s tongue trumped Gaga. Have you checked Gaga’s Twitter lately? She tweeted a lot about the VMAs, she praised Justin Timberlake and Macklemore and One Direction… but there is NO mention of Miley whatsoever. Very telling. Personally, I think Gaga is just jealous that Hannah Montana out-stunt-queened her.

Also – Gaga had Terry Richardson photographing her the whole time while she was getting ready for the VMAs. You can see those pics here.

    I love that hair color on her.

  2. Taylor says:

    She should be worried, I didn’t even remember that she was there!

    • Andrew says:

      If anything she should be thankful. Miley’s performance totally made GaGa look normal and lots better. I actually thought Gaga did ok. Not a huge fan, but she can definitely sing and entertain live. I mean she did all that choreography and costume changing without missiing a beat. After her performance I thought “she is definitely talented, just a little weird and annoying”. After Miley’s performance I thought “Oh Dear LORD!! My EYES! My EARS! WTF was that? Bless her heart! Give me the bleach and get the food away!! Cuss word, cuss word, WTF?” As a side note, I am loving that wig and her makeup lately. The problem is she just can’t stick to one weird thing to promote her album. I wouldn’t mind her being bizarre if she’d stuck to a theme or something.

    • LeilaD says:

      I liked some parts of her performance..I mean it wasn’t groundbreaking or something…but you guys must admit that she didn’t sound that good live even though she sang only some parts of her song..Plus her dancing Was all kind of meh..if you guys want to see a real artist go check pink’s live performances

  3. Amory says:

    I don’t care about either, but Gaga has the better butt by far! Miley’s flat, soft butt looked so gross in her outfit.

  4. Julie says:

    Why does it look like it’s so hard for her to smile? Well, at least she tried.

  5. Yelly says:

    I hate Lady Gaga but her body is looking good these days. Gives me hope!

  6. mia girl says:

    You go away for “hip surgey” and this is what happens…some little twerk steals your thunder.

    Fun fact- yesterday one of the EntWeekly editors who covered the VMAs said that the picture making the rounds of the Smiths reacting to Miley was actually them reacting to Gaga, but that someone spliced the two together to make a point.

    If true, that’s just insult to injury. Miley’s even stealing her reaction shots!

  7. Tapioca says:

    I would have thought Gaga would be more worried about being outsold 2½:1 by Katy Perry.

  8. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    The seam across her foreead from her wig: haha.

  9. sarah says:

    I didn’t think I’d ever ever say this but I’m really digging this look on Gaga right now. I think she’s exhausted all her “shock” value and now we’re just like “eh, it’s Gaga”

  10. Nev says:

    You know what won it over for me and why I don’t really mind Miley’s act a fool-ness?!!


    It reminded me of Madonna back in the day when she was carefree and devil may care. Gaga is too serious. It takes any fun outta it.

  11. LadyMTL says:

    Well, her performance was kind of forgettable so I’m not surprised that no one is talking about it. Compared to her earlier VMA’s (especially when she did Paparazzi) this was all rather…ordinary for Lady Gaga.

    • NM9005 says:

      Yup she was just super boring. Compared to her Paparazzi performance AND her general image: she didn’t bring it. Her dancing was lazy and sloppy as usual despite her hours of training.

      And hy did she change wigs so much? At some point, the visuals need to take a backseat when you do not have the time to pull them off correctly. Ending practically naked didn’t contribute anything to her performance as it was just a re-enactment of her video and honey, we don’t need a vma performance for that. We can just go to Youtube. Give something new!

      Cyrus definitely overshadowed her fine ass :D and you know she hates it. JT and Bruno Mars also got positive attention. Mars for me was really the star of the evening. I could see Prince and Jackson for sure, I wish he was more popular :( .

  12. junegorilla says:

    She would be right about that! I hope that she doesn’t get her rabid fans after Hannah Montana!

  13. Jayna says:

    She showed her whole ass full on with a thin g-string strip in her crack and then wore it out in the audience mingling with celebs on commercial break with her full ass showing, not just cheeks like Miley, and I think she thought that would get a rise out of everybody, but just some mention and a few photos.

    She’s just thinks I’m an artist. I do performance art and can actually sing. And Miley got no recognition for artistry or singing so looks down on her. It is shocking how little interest there is in Gaga compared to Paparazzi era VMAs.

    • Mirna says:

      Yeah, I thought it was hysterical how Gaga thought she was going to be THE center of attention with her bits hanging out at the VMAs and she got shown up by a little girl on drugs.

    • NM9005 says:

      I think that’s why she left, she wasn’t the centre of attention not because of 1D betting booed.

      I bet SHE wouldn’t mind being booed instead of being ignored. In between all the T Swift, Rihanna and 1D cutaways and Cyrus foolery, there was no room for Gaga to shine in any way whatsoever. The best performances were done by Mars and JT so even there she failed to make an impression.

  14. Adrien says:

    Even the Smith family reaction was credited to Miley’s performance even if it was Gaga they were looking at.
    The only time people talked about her was when they thought no one was talking about her.

  15. Skins says:

    Don’t worry Gaga. People saw Miley for what she is, lowlife trash. I doubt she will be selling out arenas any time soon

  16. Madpoe says:

    Probably makes the TSA jobs of a pat down easier with this outfit.
    Not the outfit I’d want to be found in if my plane went down tho’.

  17. Franziska says:

    I think the whole Miley thing made her look BETTER. She should be thanking the tongue of doom for making her look like a true performer instead of a sexed up teenager.

  18. Twirl says:

    The Twitter tantrum with Perez and add that wig she is wearing, Gaga is starting to look like Amanda Bynes.

  19. gatinha523 says:

    I am a Gaga fan, for sure, so think of my comments what you will – BUT, Gaga is on a completely different level than Miley…Gaga is an accomplished pianist and songwriter. Have you seen any of her a capella performances? She is truly musically talented. Miley is just…not.

    • Emily says:

      She is extremely talented. Her a Capella performances are actually my favorite. She has always gone the extra mile for the shock value, so I don’t think that this has anything to do with Miley. Gaga has always dressed “different” and there was a stage when she was in the news every day because she was going out without pants on all the time. This is not new.

      Also: please refrain from acting like Miley Cyrus’ pathetic little meltdown on the stage was anything she tactfully planned. I read two articles today trying to give her credit as being “the new shock factor queen.” Let’s not kid ourselves as though that was some ingenious plan for recognition and to boost her career. There was no depth to it. She’s about 5 minutes away from a full on Britney breakdown.

    • Minnie says:

      Gaga fans keep saying this. I just dont see this hailed talent. Her voice and Mileys are probably the same callibre in terms of range and pitch. Miley can hold notes too, when she isnt rolling on Molly. I dont get why the Monsters think she is so talented.

      • Steph says:

        Um have you seen videos of both of them just singing? No theatrics and dancing? Miley scream sings and gaga sings. Hands down Gaga is on a different level.

      • Andrew says:

        Have you ever seen Gaga live? That woman can sing AND entertain let me tell you. She can also dance. I’m no Monster, but she is definitely talented. I highly doubt Miley can do the same…but I do think Miley has talent, just not with the auto tuned crap music she’s doing. She could always sing well. But I will firmly say that GaGa has way more talent and shouldn’t be compared :)

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I think Gaga has a great voice, and she actually uses it in different ways (especially evident in early music). She can sound like a growly lounge singer or a sweet bubble gum pop tart. She does jazz with Tony Bennett, etc., so she does have some range.

        I think Miley has potential, but her vioce is very reedy and she has a drawl. It sounds good on country-esque songs, but I find it grating on pop songs.

      • Kylie says:

        I’m with you Minnie. Gaga’s talented but only as far as average people go. If you compare her to vocalists, she’s way behind.

    • lisa says:

      i saved a bunch of different gaga performances of just her and her piano. i love them. this tryhard thing she does is beneath her. but i guess if she believed it, she wouldnt do it.

  20. Lucybelle says:

    I can’t imagine traveling on an overseas flight in this outfit. It looks itchy and like it rides up in all the wrong places. Ouch, but you know, ART.

  21. CC says:

    I’m not a music lover (or even a music liker) but Lady Gaga looks like such a hack.

  22. MissMoody says:

    I think Lady Gaga is just learning what Miley eventually will too…that hype can only get you so far. I like Applause but it’s just not single material. With that said, all she really needs is one massively good song and everyone will be like “OMG Gaga’s back ya’ll!” I hate the world sometimes

  23. m says:

    Courtney Stodden called, she wants her outfit back

  24. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Isn’t it interesting that much of this discussion revolves around appearances,etc. and not the quality of the music – if gaggles had confidence in her music, she wouldn’t even be concerned about this twerked out stripper, but her music is average at best, without the hype,
    I agree Maria with you on Bruno Mars, he’s way better than gaga – and he has an interesting bio, unlike gaga’s fake bio.
    BTW, supermodel Christy Turlington, in the late 80s, were her hair like gaga’s, but there’s no comparison as to who looked better – Christy hands down.

  25. MeowuiRose says:

    The fact that she is as thick as thieves with Uncle t
    Terry upsets me. I used to be obsessed with her and loved everything she wore, sang and did. I even made a poster collage and hung it in my bathroom for inspiration. Now I’m so over her try hard behavior and insincere attitude. :(

  26. LaurieH says:

    Is GaGa jealous that Miley took home the Shock N’ Awe award and that her “comeback” performance was brushed aside with hardly a mention? Absolutely!! Wll she admit it? Absolutely not! What I expect is for GaGa to step it up a notch with the weird and half-naked outfits and take subtle digs at Miley by reminding us how original she (Gaga) is and how she’s an avant garde artiste and how she’s an icon.

  27. Trillion says:

    She’s full-on Paul Stanley here.

  28. Eleonor says:

    Her first time at the VMA’s was decent (not great to me but decent yes): she was the new thing. The second one, the one “that was going to change history of pop” “the biggest thing after Thriller” she names drop MJ every time, was the one with the giant Egg, and was a “meh”. Third one she was oushined by Miley Cyrus, that says it all.

  29. KatieD says:

    I realize this applies to more celebs than just gaga, but I can’t imagine needing attention SO badly that I would go out in public looking like that. It must be exhausting to always be “on” like that and have to constantly try and outdo yourself to make sure people keep noticing you. I see infinitely more confidence in laid-back celebs (or even regular people) who always make sure they look put-together and polished before leaving the house, than I see in celebs like this. Gaga’s not fooling anyone- well maybe some people, but regardless of whether you think she’s talented or “has the body” to carry off certain looks, the things she does come from a place of deep fear that she won’t be noticed or will fade away. And that is both sad and tiring for me to think about.

  30. Nev says:

    UM Madonna wore that bra in the insert of her MDNA album….just saying.

  31. Paige says:

    Miley was talked about in a horrible way, not great at all, so if I were Gaga I wouldn’t be worried, I’d probably would be laughing. Gaga has talent, something to back her antics up unlike Miley. Actually Miley’ s thing helped Gaga because it made her look tame and she needs the GP good reception.Miley was tore into pieces yesterday, I’d rather be gaga right now. People werent laughing with her, but at her.

  32. randmanrandy says:

    I always do a double take when I see Lady Gaga’s nose ring. I keep thinking she has post nasal drip.

  33. Tiffany says:

    I think all the crap overshadowed the fact that MTV made such a big huff about Daft Punk not performing on the Colbert Report and all they did was stand there to present. That is what I want to talk about.

  34. Catalina says:

    “Applause” was such a letdown. Gaga was egging her fans on to pre-order and watch the video desperately. Homegirl wore a thong to the VMAs and no one could give a f-ck. Maybe we’re starting to get use to Gaga’s antics. It’s not “different” anymore because every pop start seems to be doing it: Miley, Rihanna, Nicki. It’s sad because I know Gaga has so much to offer.

  35. celine says:

    Puh-leaase y’all are talking like this is the first time Lady Gaga stripped almost bare naked for a performance. I think at this point she doesn’t care anymore – the whole world has seen what she looks like naked already, and I think that’s the way she wants it.

    At least Lady Gaga intentionally invoked Boticelli’s Birth of Venus in her performance; Miley Cyrus’ performance on the other hand may or may not have invoked syphilis.

  36. alee says:

    No one has noticed that’s the same bikini that Leann Rime’s trashtastic red-haired friend was wearing in the vacation photos? Right?

  37. MegG says:

    The title of this thread is what I thought when I watched Mileys performance lol

  38. MissB says:

    @TrustMOnThissays: I still say it looks like she found Beyonce’s old weave out behind the dumpster!”

    Dark blonde wigs looks better on a white woman that it does on a black woman who tries to whiten/lighten herself everytime she gets a chance.
    As another someone else pointed out supermodel Christy Turlington had that hair back in the 80′s, so Beyonce ain’t exactly doing anything unique. Seriously, I’m so sick of seeing black women die there hair blonde and wear blonde wigs or try to have hair types and textures they can’t naturally have, it looks so trashy and tacky, just like those white women who use that nasty spray on orange tan.

    I will have to agree with others that I don’t think lady gaga is as talented as her fans want us all to believe, she’s average all around in both her voice and music, she’s mostly nothing but weird costumes and attention whoring. I hope popart fails because I’m sick of her.
