Lady Gaga kissed her fiancé for the Grammys’ backstage cameras

Lady Gaga showed some PDA with her fiancé, Christian Carino, by giving him a kiss backstage at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen them kissing at a high-profile event. They were caught lip-locked at last year’s Super Bowl. The pair announced their engagement in November of last year, and Christian proved his love by getting a tattoo on his arm of Gaga’s face.

Gaga gave us a double dose of FASHION on Sunday night, first donning a gothic Armani Privé ensemble, made up of a lace bodysuit and billowing (removable) maxi skirt on the red carpet. Her hair, according to her stylist, Frederic Aspiras, was not inspired by Game of Thrones, but rather by her gown. Says Frederic, “Gaga and I always wanted to do something special with hair braiding. When I saw the dress, it reminded me of gowns from the Victorian era and how women wore corsets. Thus, I used that as inspiration to incorporate in the hair and braiding.” Also clearly visible was the enormous pink diamond ring that may or may not be her engagement ring.

Later, she looked luminescent in an all while gown for the stage performance. Showcasing her piano skills (with the help of producer Mark Ronson on guitar), Gaga performed her hits “Joanne” and “Million Reasons” on a white grand piano enclosed in a pair of angel wings. She dedicated the songs to her late aunt, who was the inspiration for her last album, telling the crowd, “This is for my father’s late sister, Joanne. This is for love and compassion, even when you can’t understand.”

While she may have won over the crowd, she didn’t get the same result from the Grammy voters, losing the Best Pop Vocal Album and the Best Pop Solo Performance awards to Ed Sheeran. After the show, Gaga shared that her performance at the awards was “very emotional singing. Soul shaking and humbling.”

You know Gaga is gonna Gaga, and that she did on Sunday. I can’t help but like her, questionable fashion choices and all.

    I know we’re not meant to do this, but I find her face – or specifically how different it is from in the past – distracting and uncomfortable. She’s such a great talent, I find it sad.

    • LondonGal says:

      Agreed. Thing is, it’s no one’s business, but when you write a song on championing yourself and acceptance called ‘born this way’, you do rather invite a touch of commentary, surely she must know this? I thought she looked stunning for ‘AHS’ and she’s so different now I barely recognize her. Feel sad about it too. I don’t think with the the best will in the world we see anyone with lots of facial/body modification and think they seem happy, so we ergo feel sad for them.

      • Kitten says:

        This is how I feel, too. I mean, it’s not like she’s the first celeb to completely change her appearance through surgery, but you expect it from people like the Kardashians, not so much from a woman who has made self-acceptance a major part of her public platform.

        She looks strange to me –I thought she was uniquely pretty before.

        I also think this guy (superficially-speaking) is a downgrade from Taylor Kinney but many people speculated that was a showmance so who knows….maybe this relationship is actually real.

      • Bridget says:

        Have you seen Taylor Kinney recently? He’s not look so great either.

        But let’s just say it. Gaga is going full cat face. And yes, she does have the right to do whatever she wishes to her face, but we can also question the obvious work (and the obfuscation she’s done over the years). She’s always been someone that is more interested in paying lip service to her messages than actually living it.

      • Betsy says:

        Funny you mentioned the Kardashians; she looks like Kim in that long shot on the red carpet.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I mean, she’s been about self-love, but she’s also been pretty open about her insecurities. I dont expect her to magically have good self esteem just because she wishes it for other people, you know? I think she has good intentions, but she’s human.

        Her man makes total sense. Since “Speechless”, her Dad has been revealed to be such a strong presence in her life. She paints him as strong and stereotypically masculine. I think she’s kind of dating a version of her father. They look similar.

    +1, she’s really morphing into a younger Donatella Versace..

  3. Christina says:

    I think this guy suits her.

  4. Kitten says:

    People always talk about facial symmetry as being a key component when it comes to conventional beauty but I see these celebs who get all this surgery to get what they perceive to be a more conventionally-attractive, “symmetrical” face and it really backfires. Generally-speaking, I’m not super-judgey about this kind of thing–a bit of botox here, a little filler there, fine–but when it completely erases any trace of one’s previous facial characteristics, I think it’s gone too far. Olivia Munn is another woman that comes to mind..Megan Fox as well. They were so fresh-looking before, now they just look oddly generic….sad, honestly.

    • Willa says:

      I agree with everything you just stated. She was uniquely pretty before the work. I thought she had the prettiest bow shaped lips – in the Paparazzi era – but now they are so big and bloated.

    • Erinn says:

      I can’t quite place it with Gaga. I don’t doubt that she’s gotten SOMETHING done, but I can’t tell exactly what. When I look at old photos her makeup is done in such an over the top, costumey way that I think SOME of the difference is that she’s doing more traditional makeup now. And I think she’s been contouring the crap out of her nose – but maybe that’s the part that got altered. Some celebrities you can tell right away what they’ve done to their face… but with her, I’m not positive.

      I think Olivia Munn was stunning before. She’s still super pretty, but without the same kind of impact she used to have. Megan Fox is the one that I always think of when I think about people who’ve ‘ruined’ their look. She was so insanely fresh looking before – and she went too generic. It took away everything that made her unique – and it doesn’t look right.

      I think the key is really trying to maintain part of what makes your face YOUR face. I understand if you hate your nose – or have medical issues related to it – go ahead and change it. If it makes you feel better, that’s great. But Ashley Tisdale is someone who ‘fixed’ hers and her face is almost too empty looking now. Being able to balance the features is so important. But I also can see how easy it would be to adjust a bunch of things at once and lose focus.

      I got in an instagram wormhole the other day and found a Dr who does injections and skincare and things like that . The difference between her work and a lot of other work I’ve seen in INSANE. She is all about gradual changes – not overwhelming the lips with too much filler – things that should just be common sense. But the subtle changes in her clients profiles was impressive. And they still looked like themselves. I was actually kind of amazed by it because it just looked REALLY good. If I saw them I’d never have known they’d looked different before.

      • Kitten says:

        I’d say nose job (not a drastic one but she definitely had the slope straightened), chin fillers, Volumina in the cheeks, lip fillers, botox in forehead and masseter… to start.

        She also lost a lot of weight when she became really famous, which can definitely change the shape of one’s face.

        I guess I just think that “balanced features” shouldn’t always be the goal, you know? Like Kendall Jenner for instance; she got lip injections and it ruined one of her best features IMO. She has these long brown eyes that are fairly large and have a really pretty shape that slopes up at the end. The lip injections just totally detracted from that and basically made her eyes FAR less noticeable/striking. When her mouth was smaller, her eyes really popped IMO.
        So yeah, Angelina Jolie may have large lips and large eyes and amazing bone structure but just because that combo is beautiful on her, doesn’t mean it’s beautiful on everyone.

        Do you have the link to the dr’s IG? Curious to see it…
        But that’s the thing: PS can look good but a restraint and a light touch is so important.

      • Jayna says:

        @Kitten, you’re right about all the work she has had done and does. She admitted years ago she became so obsessed with filler in her face, going to some strip mall place getting it, that the director of an upcoming music video she was going to be shooting told her she had to stop doing it so she would look okay by the time the music video was shot. That’s how far gone she was.
        She said she realized then she was addicted to it. But that was years ago. And you can see she still does it.

        I thought her face looked weird at the Grammys. It makes me wonder did she lay off on all of the overuse of botox and fillers for her movie A Star is Born, because if not, it will be hard to watch her on a large screen trying to act with an immovable face and lips that have a fake look.

      • KicktheSticks says:

        I say she has not had a SURGICAL nose job. I am quite certain she’s had a non-surgical one. You guys need to google it, it’s pretty extraordinary to see the before/after. It’s done with fillers. You can still see traces of her original nose when she sings live on TV. Considering she has admitted to loving fillers, I am pretty sure she did the filler nose job. She’s also had them in her cheeks, lips, and chin plus botox. Fillers can seriously change your face to the point people think you’ve had surgery but it’s all injectables. She got slammed so hard for being ugly when she came out that I’m not surprised she did all this to her face.

  5. Myhairisfullofsecrets says:

    I really like Gaga. There was only one time I’ve really questioned her sanity. It was when she let someone vomit on her on stage during a performance. Yes, that happened. Google it if you dare.

    • Jayna says:

      It’s not questioning her sanity. It’s the need to do something so over the top and label it “as art,” but purely to get attention. It’s just pretentiousness is what it is. She truly believes it is an artistic statement, not the need for attention, and we peasants, who roll our eyes at the vomit performance, just don’t understand the deep meaning behind it artistically.

      • Myhairisfullofsecrets says:

        I totally understand what your saying about the sanity part.

        I have a severe vomit phobia so it would be insane for me to ever considered doing something like that. Also, the sanitary issue is a lot to think about for me. I just can’t wrap my head around that vomit artistic performance in any aspect. 😖

  6. Bridget says:

    Gaga is just one elaborate facade. That’s the problem with all of her work aside from her first album – it comes across as someone who is TRYING to be an artist and to have a voice, but doesn’t have one of her own beyond the construct created by the original Team Gaga. There’s something so contrived about her work, and sadly that now includes her face, which has been completely remodeled over the years.

    • Betsy says:

      I don’t expect anything other than artifice. Performers don’t owe me their soul.

      • Kitten says:

        No they don’t but I believe the point that Bridget was trying to make is that no amount of posturing or artifice can adequately compensate for a lack of substance and raw talent. Soulless music is, you know, soulless….

        And we all know that Gaga can sing so it’s not like she needs all the gimmicks.

      • Bridget says:

        Art should absolutely be soulful. If you don’t think so, then I sincerely hope you’re not complaining about an entertainment landscape full of Kardashians.

        And Gaga has spent years coming up with contrived ways to appear to be in turns shocking, as an artist, or a multitude of things, in order to cover up that other individuals were the architects of her early success and to try to figure out a formula for re-capturing that success. No thanks.

  7. Lala says:

    Gaga keeps her ticket prices in check so that her fans can afford to see her…and she’s passionate about her fan base…everything that I need to know about her…I got from that

    • mmmm says:

      Really? because when she came to my town tickets to her show were the most expensive we’d ever seen. she was 20€ more expensive than Britney and at least 15 more than beyonce. they were around 70€

  8. Dee says:

    Wasn’t she literally just engaged to someone else?

  9. Ozogirl says:

    Ugh…I just don’t have a good feeling about that guy.

    Her obsession with Joanne is a little odd…even her grandmother cautioned her about it in the Netflix doc.

  10. KicktheSticks says:

    Her makeup was so bad. It looked horrific on TV when she was singing.
