New Yorker Lady Gaga had a dream come true performing in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. She began her medley of “Heavy Metal Lover,” “Marry the Night,” and “Born This Way” in a costume that I would describe as “black sequin Jabba the Hut.” What’s your best guess? (I’ve seen Pac-Man ghost on Twitter, which was my second thought.)
She soon enough stripped down to a relatively normal ensemble: a black sequin bodysuit and Catwoman mask with some kind of large wire globe structure around her head. We said “relatively normal.” Watch the performance below. Gaga later helped Mayor Bloomberg push the button to drop the ball after changing into an equally accessible Versace number.
