Lady Gaga visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk fashion — not of how she’s the new face of Versace, or how she was dressed as a bizarro Baby Spice, but how she was inspired to purchase iconic pieces from Michael Jackson‘s wardrobe.
The ARTPOP diva recalls an auction where she purchased pieces that Jackson wore for “Thriller” and “Billie Jean,” including a glove. She also gravitated toward items that MJ wore on tour, because of how pieces from her own touring wardrobe end up being her favorites to wear. “I imagine that he felt the same way, because I believe that the fans’ energy gets stuck in my clothes,” she says. “They’re just going [shrieks] and I just imagine that when I open my little pocket it goes [shrieks].”
Then, after she lists items that she’d wear and situations when she’d wear them, Lady Gaga casts out a disclaimer: “For any Michael Jackson fan that is watching, shit is pristine.” See her talk about the King of Pop’s wardrobe up top, then watch her talk about her boyfriend, Elton John‘s kids and her ballad “Dope” after the jump.
