Lady Gaga’s entrance into the 2019 Met Gala was an extended high-fashion burleque performance in which she dramatically disrobed to reveal four different lewks in under a minute and that noise you heard is the ghost of Susan Sontag screaming “YAAAAAAAS GAGA!”
First look: Did someone say “camp”? I brought a tent.
Second look: Attending a funeral for your wig.
Third look: A fake-out final look with a Marilyn Monroe Moment.
Fourth look: Hey! Big! Spender!
Lady Gaga showing up to an event and then immediately taking off her clothes for fashion reasons is exactly the energy I’m trying to manifest at every social gathering from now on. “Thanks for inviting me to your wedding! Before you walk down the aisle, I’m going to just do a quick little prance in my underwear. As a gift to you. It’s called taste; look it up.”
I will also be attending all social gatherings with a group of bodyguards and hot models carrying black umbrellas. All my RSVPs will now be for 12. No low ceilings, please.
Anyone who’s been watching this season’s Project Runway knows that Brandon Maxwell loves a reveal. Well, honey, he delivered on that love in spades in the ensemble he designed for Gaga. She had more reveals than a lip sync on the season finale of a Drag Race. Somewhere in the multiverse, Lady Gaga is still taking off items of clothing until she has gotten down to a gown made of molecules and the tears of all your faves. Give Lady Gaga another Oscar. This is a performance for the ages.
