Quite the “costume”, there, Gaga! Although, I’d find it rather dangerous to stage dive at your level of fame wearing, basically, nothing.
Lady Gaga’s first Lollapalooza performance was on a small side stage in 2007, where she received more than a few bewildered stares and was unapologetically called a “trainwreck.” So when she headlined the first night of this year’s Lollapalooza, wearing the same silver-jeweled bra she wore at that first performance, she wasn’t going to let anyone forget where she started.
“I had no record deal. No one believed in me,” she said, tearing up. “But we did it. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for coming to this show tonight.” When she wasn’t singing, dancing, or soaking herself in blood during her own set, Gaga preached about her self-esteem struggles and her rough start in the music biz. “I didn’t used to be brave,” she said. “I was made fun of in school. I got told ‘No,’ but you have made me brave, little monsters. I’m gonna be brave for you.”
