The bubble dress, the meat dress … just when you think Lady Gaga’s done it all, think again. The pop / rock sensation made quite an egg-citing entrance at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 13, showing up on the red carpet in a giant, semi-transparent egg carried by five scantily-dressed attendees. She “hatched” on the Grammy stage by cracking her shell and stepping out in all yellow to perform her new single Born This Way.
Gaga has always claimed Madonna is one of her influences, but critics have pointed out that the new song sounds eerily similar to the Material Girl’s Express Yourself. When asked about the comparison, Gaga claimed she “got an email from her people and her, sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single and if the queen says it shall be, it shall be.” Word on the street is that Madonna’s old record company Warner Brothers is getting in on the action—they’re set to re-release the 1989 single, along with a new live video featuring Madonna performing the song in 2004.
Lady Gaga’s contributions to the music industry have already given her numerous awards and achievements, including five Grammy Awards and an estimated sale of fifteen million albums and fifty-one million singles worldwide. She was Billboard’s Artist of the Year in 2010 and ranked as the 73rd Artist of the 2000s decade. Gaga’s also been included in Time magazine’s annual list of the most influential people in the world as well as Forbes’ list of the 100 Most Powerful and Influential celebrities in the world. Looking “powerful” and confident as always in these oversized Tom Ford sunglasses, it’s easy to see why Lady Gaga has so many “little monsters” at her feet.
