Lady Gaga was reportedly set drive on stage in a beat up car and perform a medley of her hits while wearing a never-before-seen “water dress” at tonight’s Brit Awards, where the singer is nominated in three categories. But MTV UK and The Sun now say she may just opt to do an acoustic rendition of Fame Monster album track “Dance In The Dark” while wearing all black.
So what’s got Gaga feeling so blue?
“The whole performance was ready to go. But when she turned up for final rehearsals on Monday she announced she is too upset about Alexander McQueen to do that performance,” a source said to The Sun. “She says she’s changing everything. She wants to wear an all-black outfit and do sombre versions of her music as a tribute to him.”
Fashion staple McQueen, whose designs appeared in Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video, was found dead in his home last week. The next day Gaga posted a photo of herself with McQueen via Twitter. (See other artists who’ve worn Alexander McQueen’s outfits here.)
Meanwhile, the Sun claims farmer Howard Baines of Crofton, England, received a phone call over the weekend asking if Lady Gaga—who has been rehearsing for the UK leg of her Monster Ball tour nearby—could borrow his barn for a few hours.
The reason? The singer wanted to have a romantic Valentine’s Day breakfast with boyfriend Matthew Williams.
“Sure enough, the following morning a blacked-out van pulled up. I couldn’t believe it,” Baines told the paper. “They went into the barn and sat and had their champagne breakfast.”
