Popular music singer Lady GaGa has a “thing,” and this “thing” is not wearing pants. Instead, she just wears underwear, or short shorts, and probably some leggings or stockings or something too. This gets her noticed! And people then ask her about it. Here are some of the things she’s said in re: her sartorial choices, which, by the way, involve not wearing pants. “The singer was recently stopped by police in Chicago who had some objections to her hot pants. ‘I guess they weren’t really pants at all, but it was really funny because all you saw was this half-naked girl on the street yelling at some cop,’ she told the Daily Star, adding that she tried to reason with the officer. ‘It’s fashion! I’m an artist!’ ” [MTV] “I just don’t feel that it’s all that sexy. It’s weird. And uncomfortable. I look at photos of myself, and I look like such a tranny! It’s amazing! I look like Grace Jones, androgynous, robo, future fashion queen. It’s not what is sexy. It’s graphic, and it’s art. But that’s what’s funny: Well, yeah, I take my pants off, but does it matter if your pants are off if you’ve got eight-inch shoulder pads on, and a hood, and black lipstick and glasses with rocks on them? I don’t know. That’s sexy to me. But I don’t really think anybody’s d- is hard, looking at that. I think they’re just confused, and maybe a little scared.” [EW “It’s not that I don’t like pants, I just choose not to wear them some days.” [Softpedia] “My grandmother is basically blind, but she can make out the lighter parts, like my skin and hair. She says, ‘I can see you, because you have no pants on.’ So I’ll continue to wear no pants so that my grandma can see me.” [OneSource Talent] And a bonus quote, about cocaine: “2005 was where it began, and I thought I was gonna die. I never really did the drugs for the high–it was more the romanticism of Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger and all the artists that I loved. I wanted to be them, and I wanted to live their life, and I wanted to understand the way that they saw things and how they arrived at their art. And I believed the only way I could do this was to live the lifestyle, and so I did. So it wasn’t about getting high–it was about being an artist. About waking up in the morning at 10:30 and doing a bunch of lines and writing a bunch of music, and staying up for three days on a creative whirlwind and then panic-attacking for a week after. It was one of the most difficult times in my life, but it was important for me to experience, since it unlocked parts of my brain. But I wouldn’t encourage people to do it for that reason–you can arrive at all those things on your own.” [ShockHound]
