Lady Gaga in a McQueen corset at the MTV Awards: sleek and fresh?

One complaint I’ve heard often about the MTV Movie and Music Awards is that the ceremony has been suffering from a lack of star power. That and the fact that Keeping Up with the Kardashians beat RuPaul’s Drag Race for Best Reality Show – but maybe that one is just my complaint. The network upped the ante with a surprise appearance by superstar Lady Gaga.

Gaga won the award for Best Music Documentary for her revealing Netflix doc Five Foot Two. She beat Jay Z, Diddy, Demi Lovato and HBO’s The Defiant Ones, about producer Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre (which I actually thought was going to win, until I remembered this was the MTV Awards). After receiving her award from host Tiffany Haddish, Gaga acknowledged her fans, exclaiming “Thank you so so much for giving five foot two the award for best music documentary. I love you little monsters so much!” And, of course, the woman who brought you “Born This Way” made sure to add “Happy Pride Month!”

The 32-year-old singer went on to share a revelation about the film. She confessed, “I just have one problem, I recently found out that I am actually five-foot-three and three quarters…I am so, so sorry, but thank you so much.” Gaga also had the honor of announcing the winner for Best Movie. She noted that “The five films nominated this year (It, Wonder Woman, Avengers: Infinity War, Girls Trip and Black Panther) filled our spirits, broke our hearts, broke the box office and led us on shiny-starred adventures that we are still coming down from.” As for the victor, it was, as Gaga enthusiastically announced, “Black mother f—– Panther.”

So, let’s talk about the look. I think it was quintessentially Gaga. The outfit, a red leather corset with harness detailing paired with a sheer, black skirt is from Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. I love, love, love the corset. I also like the slicked on one side blonde bob and her flawless smoky eye and red lips. She gave fans a sneak peek at her look via an Instagram story on Saturday. She definitely gets a toot from me. I’m also thinking Gaga ought to start planning her wardrobe selection for next year’s awards. With A Star is Born, she’s sure to score a nomination.

    It’s hard to tell because she’s always in a ton of makeup, but did she do something to her face?

    • A says:

      Thought the same. She looks a bit like Katy Perry.

    • Jussie says:

      Every time she’s out of the spotlight for more than a month she comes back with new work.

      This time it looks like she’s actually corrected some of the more obvious work she’s had done, but still, it’s just so much, and it’s the kind of work that eventually ruins your face. You can only change your nose or your brow arch or the position of your cheek fillers so many times before it ends in disaster.

      • SM says:

        I also first thought that it’s a new face of Gwen Stefani. Turns out it’s a new Gaga face.

    • Milla says:

      I thought it was Gwen Stefani… Why?

      • lautie says:

        cos she’s not the same person who did the movie A Star is born! two different faces!……..loool

    • Veronica S. says:

      I think a lot of it is the makeup and the hair changing her features. But she’s had a nose job before, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she altered it again.

    • Rebecca says:

      Maybe a chin implant?

  2. OSTONE says:

    For a second I thought it was Gwen Stefani.

  4. HeyThere! says:

    I had zero idea who this was! She face is totally different!

  5. Marnie says:

    Add me to the list of those who thought it was Gwen Stefani.

  6. KathNitenDay says:

    Whoa..never would be guessed Gaga from that header pic. I can see fillers..but what else is so different about her?

  7. jferber says:

    I love the corset!

  8. Naddie says:

    She looks artificial from head to toe.

  9. caffienatedwench says:

    If by “fresh” you mean debuted a new face, then yeah…

  10. KBB says:

    I know she was kidding about the five foot three and three quarters thing, but I don’t think she’s even 5’2. She’s 5’1 tops.

  11. Lucy2 says:

    I like the outfit, but who’s face is that?

  12. Other Renee says:

    The question isn’t “What has she done to her face?” It’s “What HASN’T she done to her face?” For a woman who preaches “Love yourself as you are,” she sure doesn’t live by it.

    I love the corset, hair and makeup.

  13. sza says:

    Hi, I am hear from the WTF Did You Do To Your Face Committee. I just wanted to welcome Gaga and offer her the Platinum Membership.

  14. Ellie71 says:

    I think her face is different because of a really good nose job. It is very sleek and straight. You notice it more in the side profile.
