Lady Gaga Shows Her Ties To France On ‘Taratata’

Before heading round the world to Japan, globe trotter Lady Gaga filmed a set of performances for French TV show Taratata. The newly appointed Queen of Pop kept things simple while playing piano for “The Edge Of Glory” and “Hair” (with her long blue braids tied to a mini model of the Eiffel Tower). She picked up the pace with a dance routine for “Born This Way”, but while wearing a baggy men’s suit, calligraphy-looking eyeliner, blue eyebrows and a short blue bob, Gaga looked like comedian Paula Poundstone as a Cirque Du Soleil clown in the 1980s. Watch all the performances (and her interview) below.

“The Edge Of Glory”


“Born This Way”

“I love French people, I love French fashion, I love French food, French music, French men, French woman,” says Gaga. “But most of all, the most exciting thing about being at Taratata is it’s such a theatrical environment and I am a woman of the theater.” She calls her French fans “mon petites monsters”, and it’s adorable. Most interestingly, she says the German she rattles off in the beginning of Born This Way track “Shieβe” is pretty much nonsense (though we suppose anyone who spoke German could have told you that).
