Lady Gaga wore sparkly Celine to the Grammys: actually quite lovely?

61st Annual Grammy Awards

I saw some people on Twitter suggesting that Lady Gaga was stoned out of her mind at the Grammys. Honestly, how can you tell? I think she might have smoked a little weed to take the edge off, but mostly I think she was just nervous, especially given all of the business at hand: she had to come out early and do a bit with Michelle Obama. She had to fake-cry during a speech (she’s so weird). And she had to perform “Shallow” all by herself, as Bradley Cooper was in London for the BAFTAs. Incidentally, “Shallow” won the BAFTA for Best Song, and Gaga was winning Grammys last night before the show even started.

For her red carpet look, Gaga chose this perfectly nice Celine gown. It’s pretty and notable because it’s just a pretty gown. No drama, no meat, no look-at-me fashion antics. I especially liked her loose red carpet hair. Gaga changed several times during the evening, and she wore a sparkly jumpsuit for her Grammy performance of “Shallow.” That was the part where maybe I believe Gaga took something or smoked something, because that performance was…not good. I’m saying that as someone who liked “Shallow” and thinks it should win a lot of awards. But her “edgy, rock” performance of the song just fell flat.

    Ok, I’m not totally crazy about the dress- from some angles I thought it was really pretty, others I KIND of thought it looked a bit like it was made from tinfoil!- but her head looked incredible. Best it’s looked at any awards show she’s done this year, I reckon.

    Loved, loved, loved her red carpet look! Her performance from the beginning was SO over the top, I couldn’t stop laughing. And I’ve never heard her so off-key.

      Gawd… That was so uncomfortable and awful!!! WTF was she doing?? Ha ha ha ha ha! That song is a stripped down song, it doesn’t suit crazy stage antics. They distracted from the beauty of the song and she did NOT sound her best – possibly because she was too focused on all the rando cr*p she was doing? Mark Ronson looked… bemused… At one point I was thinking “she looks like a super coked up 65 year old Liza Minelli here…” The “dance” movements were so so bad, nothing really worked and her vocals weren’t great. Bummer!

    • broodytrudy says:

      I think she was trying to give us vintage Gaga vibes with her performance, but that’s just not really who she is anymore. This is the best I’ve ever seen her look on a red carpet. Very pretty!

    • FHMom says:

      She looked beautiful, but that performance. Not good.

    • velourazure says:

      I don’t feel that I’ve ever seen the original songwriter/performer butcher their OWN song. That was really bizarre.

    • Bella Bella says:

      Did anyone see Melissa Villaseñor’s imitation of Gaga on SNL over the weekend? Gaga looked like she was imitating Melissa imitating Gaga. LOLOLOL

      That performance was awful!!! And that position of standing there over and over again with her knees bent in a sort of second position (in ballet speak) looked awful. Could she not stand up in her shoes?

  3. dogmom says:

    Did she do something to her face? It looks … different, although it could just be the angles.

  4. tegteg says:

    I just kept thinking that she looked like a bird while she was performing.

    The way she was strutting around in 8 inch heels. It was wayyyy too much. I got secondhand embarrassment and had to turn away.

    • EMc says:

      She looked beautiful, and I was rooting so hard for her but her performance was just crazy. My husband and I were planning on seeing her show in Vegas, until I discovered tickets were bare minimum $600.. and after this performance I wont be disappointed we will have to pass. I couldnt believe how bad it was, she has such an amazing powerful voice. She seemed like such a fake to me.

      • Idiotsgalore says:

        Agreed!!! I also wanted to see her in Vegas! But seeing last nights performance I don’t mind missing it.

  5. Elisa says:

    I like this, especially her make-up!

  6. Amanda says:

    Her hair looks terrific like that! Compliments the dress nicely too

  7. Alfiesmom says:

    Lady Gaga is National Treasure!! Love her too pieces

  8. Lucy says:

    I liked her dress, but my favorite part is the styling. Her hair and makeup look amazing. I’d totally try out that hairstyle.

  9. Mindy_dopple says:

    She definitely smokes to ease the pain of her disease. I’m not going to google it right now but In her documentary it did show her smoking a lot to help cope. She likes it better than all the other kids of drugs.

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, it can be incredibly helpful for fibromyalgia – at least for some people. It’s not a ‘fix all’ but it can really take the edge of the pain off. It’s a condition where typically the more stress you have, the more pain you have. So in her position I think it’d be pretty useful. I know for me, increasing the prescription meds for bad pain days puts me in a weird, zombie ish kind of state until I adjust. So I get why she’d try to avoid increasing/adding to prescriptions when she can find a short term solution that doesn’t leave her feeling so awful.

  10. Sasha says:

    Wow, this is the prettiest I’ve ever seen her look. The softly styled hair looks beautiful on her!

  11. Mira says:

    She looked SO good. Wow. Hope she does something similar with her hair at the AA.

  12. Anne says:

    Gaga looked SOOO good. She performed this “rock” version of shallow because the original one is for the Oscars!

  13. Chaine says:

    Sorry, I don’t like it. It reminds me of fish skin, and to me her hair is rumpled.

  14. JustMyOpinion says:

    That’s the best I’ve ever seen that girl look.

  15. Lizzie says:

    she’s never looked better. she’s never been more extra. it is crazy to think of someone who wore a dress made of raw meat could be more extra but here are…

  16. Feebee says:

    I think I’m the only one who liked the rocked up version of Shallow, as a one off. I liked all her looks but the massive platforms were a tad too much for me, kudos to her for not breaking an ankle.

    • Michael says:

      I liked it too

    • Div says:

      I didn’t care for it, but I can appreciate she has stage presence and is never boring even if it doesn’t always work. I don’t think you are the only ones who liked it-it was pretty polarizing and seemed to be pretty evenly split between love/hate.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      At first I was a bit WTF, but then when I realized where she was going I thought it was a lot of fun. I love that she can be a bit rock n’ roll like KISS. I can see why she wanted to do a version that was totally opposite of what she’ll do at the Oscars.

  17. mara says:

    Gaga looked beautiful, but that performance was cringe inducing.

  18. Adorable says:

    I’m torn…..I like this look on someone else,I just think it’s a little boring/safe for Lady Gaga at the friggen Grammy Awards.

  19. Sparkly says:

    I have never ever liked any of her looks, but she looks so pretty here. Absolutely lovely.

  20. Jen says:

    I cannot wait till I never have to see Gaga fake cry about winning an award for ASIB ever again.

    Chris Kelly tweeted “just followed Gaga on Insta and she walked up the stairs into my apartment SOBBING” and I dieeedd.

  21. Rose says:

    I’d love her to go darker with her hair, she was so pretty with the more natural look in the movie.

  22. Lennn says:

    I miss her old face

  23. Div says:

    This is the best she’s looked in a while, in my opinion. I didn’t care for her performance, but I kind of laughed at all that she’s so high or bizarre or fake comments-that’s just how she is…she’s super extra and she used to perform like that all the time back in 2009-2013. It was a bad match for the song, but the weirdness was one of the reasons she became famous so while it makes some folks cringe I get why she does it and I don’t really see it as fake because her performing style was bizarre like a decade ago. I’d also take her performance, no matter how nuts, over JLo’s mess any day and at least the vocals were good.

    And I actually really loved her speech, and sometimes she can be a bit too Anne Hathaway theater kid but it worked this time.

    • jay says:

      Her expression and experimentation used to be more organic, in my opinion. Her concepts were weird, yes, but they were purposeful and compelling. It was the kind of chaotic avant guard that is planned far in advance and executed with precision. Nowadays, it seems like she’s bought into her own arthouse hype and just slaps shit together with no rhyme or reason and expects to be received as some kind of genius.

  24. Malachite says:

    I used to find Gaga’s face almost unbearably gorgeous. So unique which made it even more beautiful. I would not have recognized her in these photos. She looks very pretty and very, very generic now. It is totally her choice and I hope it has made her happy. It makes me sad though which, of course, is my own problem!

  25. jay says:

    Can she suspend her quest to be *ePiC* for like a week? Give us all a damn break? I wish she had someone around to tell her to chill the f*ck out and stop trying so hard. Her doc on Netflix was PEAK insufferable; you want to watch quiet strength in the face of debilitating pain, watch Restless Creature. Gaga is becoming such a navel gazer.

  26. Mle428 says:

    Chica looks tired, not stoned. I can’t imagine how much work awards season is for someone like Gaga who is such a crossover talent.

  27. april says:

    She looks gorgeous. She’s changed so much that I wouldn’t have recognized her.

  28. Yes Doubtful says:

    I think I’m the only one who finds Shallow to be completely overrated. I thought there were other songs on the soundtrack that were much better…

  29. Ange says:

    Over the top is her thing, she can’t live unless she’s the most *interesting* person in the room with all eyes on her. She’d be a nightmare to spend any actual time with.

  30. Misty says:

    That slit is totally “look at me.” Her hair looks really fried.

  31. Blueskies says:

    She looks amazing. I love this look from head to toe.
