LONDON - Pop icon Lady Gaga caused her fashion designers to stay up all night preparing costumes for her Grammy performance.
The singer threw her design team into a panic in the run-up to her performance at the Grammy Awards - as she scrapped all the costumes two days before the ceremony because she didn’t like them.
The ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker played her recent single, ‘Born This Way, live for the first time at the prizegiving.
She admitted that her own sci-fi inspired look during the set and the nude-coloured outfits her dancers sported onstage were last minute decisions causing her fashion designers at Haus of Gaga to stay up all night preparing the costumes.
“I actually designed all the clothes for myself and the dancers, and it was two days before the performance, I changed everything because I didn’t like the clothing,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying in an interview.
“And I felt so bad because the Haus of Gaga was all red-eyed and up all night and I would be like, ‘I hate it, we have to change everything!’ And they would be like (squeaking), ‘OK, OK,’” she said.
But Gaga insisted she only changed her mind at short notice because she wanted everyone to look part of one big team to emphasise the meaning behind ‘Born This Way.’
She said, “You know because they looked like dancers in the outfits we had and I’m so close with them, and Laurieann Gibson, my choreographer, everyone that’s in the Haus of Gaga, all the creators, we’re so close, everyone in the band, and I don’t want them to feel like, the band and dancers behind me, because the performance of ‘Born This Way’ is nothing without all of them, it’s about togetherness.” (ANI)
