Valley of the absurd

Lady Gaga meets Cruella de Ville?

Lady Gaga meets Cruella Deville?

Cruel fashion......

Cruel fashion......

I have always been fascinated with Lady Gaga. I love her music and find her fashion very disturbing but somehow it just makes me want to look at her even more. It’s almost like a crash scene — you know you shouldn’t look, but you can’t help it!

Nothing Lady Gaga does anymore surprises me either but still, I was shocked after seeing the image of Kermit the Frogs literally all over her, including in her hair. For me it was definetely an OMG moment! And this isn’t the first time she has worn muppets either. She always causes stares wherever she goes.

Her music is a great mix of pop, techno and urban, which is why her songs are on constant replay on my iPod, but for me it seems a bit odd that she is always “on”! It must be exhausting to always have to dress up in extreme outfits with your hair all crazy and your crotch constantly showing. She says her life is all about performance, but don’t we all sometimes have crappy days where we just want to wear sweat pants and veg out in front of the TV with a great movie and a gallon of ice cream? I know I am not the only one, so that is why Lady’s outfits always seem to attract attention because there is a deep fascination with the absurd. She might dress extreme but she definitely gets people talking, and isn’t that what pop culture is all about?
