Lady Gaga is in the midst of her UK leg of her Born This Way tour, and in typical style she was looking to court controversy with the local audience. At the London show over the weekend, it has emerged that the often off-kilter 26 year old pulled a female fan from the audience to sit next to her at the piano. Gaga placed a tiara on the audience-member-come-prop’s head before dedicating her new song ‘Princess D.I.E’ to her late (mostly) female muses.
Before belting out the emotional tear jerker the Born This Way singer told the crowd she anticipated that performing the song in London, that she wrote for Princess Diana, would generate controversy. No shit. Turns out nothing is sacred.
“Since I was a very young girl, the people’s Princess was the most important person in me and my mother’s life,” she told the crowd. “I swore if I ever had an audience like this in London, I would take a moment to appreciate her… This is for her, Amy Winehouse, Alexander McQueen, Whitney Houston and me.” Seems Lady Gaga is in a morose mood, including herself in a list of late greats.
The opening lyrics from the song give you a good indication of her current state of mind/marketing ploy:
“Leave the coffin open when I go/ Leave my pearls and lipstick on so everybody knows/ Pretty will be the photograph I leave/ Laying down on famous knives so everybody sees.”
Lady Gaga was also seen at the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympics on Saturday sporting a revealing wedding dress that looks pretty similar to her current muse/attention seeking technique. She below. You be the judge.
