Lady Gaga is “the creepiest singer in showbiz”


Here’s Lady Gaga at the 2009 Accessories Council Excellence Awards in New York last night. Where do we even start? The bra? The panties? The hair? The black lace veil? I don’t even know. But this sh-t is a mess. Anyway, she was presenting an award to Marc Jacobs (who must have blanched at the sight of her):

Halloween may have been over three days ago, but Lady GaGa clearly looked like she wanted to continue the spooky holiday last night.

As the singer attended the Accessories Council Excellence (ACE) Awards in New York, she decided to demonstrate why she had won an award by wearing bizarre headgear.

The 23-year-old singer wore a black lace veil partially covering her Marie Antoinette-style big hair, which was topped with a black beaded crown.

When it came to her outfit, onlookers could have been forgiven for wondering if she had recycled her Halloween night outfit.

Stepping out in a pink bra over a black shirt, pink hotpants, fishnet tights and killer heels, GaGa was covered in white dust, giving her ensemble a zombie-esque feel.

Clearly aware the impression her outfit was giving off, GaGa played up to the Halloween theme as she pulled scary poses on the red carpet.

GaGa, real name Stefani Germanotta, was one of the guests of honour at the 13th annual Ace Awards at the Cipriani restaurant in Manhattan.

She was presented with a Stylemaker Award by designer Marc Jacobs for her commitment to accessorising.

ACE President Karen Giberson said: ‘As an artist, she’s well-appointed in accessories. Just when you thought you saw everything in originality, there she is again. People anticipate what she’s going to wear and it’s exciting to see accessories as such a meaningful part of someone’s wardrobe.’

In other news, Lady Gaga was recently given a peculiar honor in the UK. MTV UK named her music video “Paparazzi” the “creepiest video of all time. The video, directed by Jonas Akerlund, is all about Lady Gaga killing people, and it is oddly hypnotic. The other artists on the top ten included Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” (at number 3), Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” and Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up” (at numbers 8 and 9). Go here for the full list.

Here’s “the creepiest video”:

    It looks like Lady Gaga got really confused after falling into a vat of cocaine or working in a bakery – I can’t decide. Plain and simple – this chick tries too hard to be edgy and just ends up looking ridiculous.

  2. Novaraen says:

    Agreed. This “style” of hers isn’t really edgy…its annoying.

    I do like her music though. lol..

  3. Anna says:

    I love the outfit. I didn’t like Lady Gaga when she first started getting some recognition but I have come around to her. I think it’s cool she’s such a living, breathing performance art project. And she’s not dumb either, I’ve read some interviews with her where she came across as smart and fully aware of what she’s doing and why. The woman might be hungry for fame (she said so herself) but she approaches it in a very unique way. If I had the figure she has, you bet I’d run around in similarly crazy stuff in my day to day life. Except for heels. Don’t have much love for heels.
    Anyway, I love how daring she is! We should all be so brave to wear whatever best expresses our personality and mood.

  4. Tammy King says:

    While I applaude Lady Gaga for being unique, I think she is now trying way too hard to be weird and different. It’s almost become cartoonish.

    I think she really is talented. I just wish she would rely a little more on her talent and less on her costumes.

  5. dizzybenny says:

    she’s good at the tuck game isint she?
    Tammy if it wasent for all the costumes she would be just another bubble gum pop singer and she would not get as much publicity.Once she gets to 3-4 cd’s then she will be an establish “star” and she will be able to pull back on all the craziness.

  6. Alecto says:

    either she had more plastic surgery or that’s not her. looks nothing like her under the lace.

  7. Ally says:

    Maybe Anna Wintour will hire a hitman to take this girl out. This broad is attention-desperate and annoying, she makes me long for the days of being subjected to an irritating deluge of Britney and Lindsay photos.

  8. Katyusha says:

    I don’t get a “zombie-esque” feeling at all from the outfit…she looks like she got into a fight with a bag of flour; and the flour won.

  9. wow says:

    She can be OTT, but I kinda like this particular “look” for her. It looks like it belongs in a fashion spread or something.

  10. almost dead says:

    I think they’ve misspelled a letter in the word “creepiest”. The first 2 “e” should be an “a”!

    I want to see the people listening to HIM in one line!

  11. CLC says:

    total try-hard. Amazing how talentless and unstylish you can be & still be successful.

  12. Peach says:

    She has a hell of a voice. Much of what she says is well thought out, she plays the piano while singing, knows who Andy Worhol is, champions gay rights and dresses like she’s insane.

    Works for me.

    And judging by most women’s Halloween costumes (i.e. slutty ____) I really am not sure where all the hubris is comming from. At least she’s interesting to look at. Can’t say the same for the endless parade of sexy cat/cop/delivery drivers we’re subjected to this time of the year.

    (and even if you take away the Halloween aspect, I’d rather see this then the endless parade of banal Hollister/Gossip Girl horseshit that’s excused as ‘in style’.)

  13. Victoria says:

    Oh! She DOES have flour/powder on her! I couldndt underdstand why people were making those comments. OK once again I will ask WHY DO ALL HER OUTFITS COVER HER FACE. Sorry to go Kanye on ya! ha ha ha!!!

  14. filthycute says:

    Love her.

  15. Firestarter says:

    I find her music awful and I don’t find her unique, ground breaking or talented. But that is strictly my opinion.

  16. jaundicemachine says:

    Her video was better than what I expected it to be – but I didn’t have very high expectations to start with.

    I’d never put it above Thriller. Ever. In any worthwhile category. It’s just too poppy and overly narcissistic for me to take it seriously.

    And most of the time I roll my eyes at Gaga’s antics, but I do really like her costume here. She moves up half a mark in my book.

  17. Leni says:

    I love the song. Not sure why it was considered creepiest though. She is clearly having fun with the whole media thing. The dead women just like the model shots, the using trusted person,etc. Clothes at bit odd at times, but she is an artist first, a singer second.

  18. Sumodo1 says:

    At this point in her career, Gaga should be seeking “credibility” not the “WTF?” factor.

  19. Obvious says:

    When i first read the headline I swore it said “crappiest” not creepiest and i busted up laughing.

    I like dhow fresh she was at first, but now she’s a cartoon and i find it kind of sad.

  20. Juice In LA says:

    Whew! so glad there are so many of you like me who do not “get” her. From the beginning of her rise, I have felt like the alleged “uniqueness” cutting edge crap was all mere fop and caracature. And I don’t see the musical talent.

    The straw for me was calling herself an “icon” while she stood on stage with Madonna during that SNL skit. It was soo forced and delusional. I just figured I was alone in my opinion.

    I don’t get her, I don’t want to. This does not make me less edgy, current or relevant.

  21. gg says:

    She wants to be different, so it’s working for her.

    My professional critique would be that her outfits all look fall-away cheap – even the pricier ones. They just look $hitty and un-road-tested. She needs some help from James Saint James.

  22. WTF?!? says:

    She didn’t give Marc Jacobs an award, it was the other way around:

    “She was presented with a Stylemaker Award by designer Marc Jacobs for her commitment to accessorising.”

  23. yadira says:

    I guess she found a new use for the fake halloween spider webs.

    Silly me, I just put my halloween decorations away in a box.

  24. For Sooth? says:

    It was insulting to watch that skit on SNL. She’s been on the scene for how long??! No way is she in Madonna’s category, or in the nearest realm of Madonna’s category. And speaking of category, she was categorically incorrect when she said she was hotter than Madonna. As if. I find her hard to look at.

    Don’t like her, don’t get her, don’t want her.

  25. Just Why? says:

    NOT………cleaver, fun, interesting, edgy, cool,(shoes are) sexy, trend-setting, creative, ect. …but she’s smart, people are talking and taking notice. When all of the hype begins to fade, all she has to do is dress…sexy, fun, edgy, cool, ect., and poof….a whole new Lady Gaga. …and that’s how it works!!! Shes creating legs for her career. Nothing new Madonna has done it for 30 plus yrs. I’m not saying that she’s anything like Madonna, because shes not! Madonna did it first and better because it is who she is. It came natural to her, there was on trying involved because it wasn’t an act! Lets all be honest, Gaga’s music is good, but her persona is getting old quick! If a painter(artist) tries to hard the end result will be a uninspired painting(work of art)….and there you have it!

  26. Essie says:

    If you have true talent, and confidence in that talent, there is no need for all this fakery and nonsense.

  27. Jag says:

    I love her! Don’t like the underwear on the outside look, but the rest of it is ferosh…

  28. dizzybenny says:

    it just hit me,do you know who she reminds off?
    Nina Hagen back in the early 80′s.

  29. Yae says:

    I found it entertaining. And I find most mainstream music boring and psychologically predictable.

    I’m a Dead Can Dance girl at heart. So anything in mainstream music that makes me sit down and watch is a miracle.

    Nicely done.

  30. Kat says:

    I can’t stand her! How nice it is to find other people who can’t stand her too.
    I felt like I was the only one while everyone was gushing all over her.

    Yes, she does remind me of Nina Hagen too, but there’s another girl singer from the 80′s, punk band, I can’t recall her name, Terry something?
    Anyone know who I’m talking about? haha
