Lady Gaga Drops By ‘The View’

Lady Gaga was back on television today, but this time the pop star left her comedic chops at home. The “Born This Way” singer (who just released her album world-wide) spent the morning chit-chatting with the gals at The View. Rocking a whacky wig-on-wig (or sideways mullet) hairdo, the heavy metal lover opened up to the ladies about her tough times in high school, her real hair color and her advice to fans: “Be yourself and love who you are and be proud, because you were born this way.” Head below for show highlights — plus see the Mother Monster’s own mother in the audience!
