Lady Gaga just showed up for the Grammy’s encased in a translucent egg, ready to be Born (This Way) at the big event. For somebody who’s supposedly afraid of babies, Lady Gaga seems pretty interested in birth imagery. The flamboyant star was carried down the red carpet by a support team of scantily clad men and women in skin-tight gold lycra. And Uggs? The egg itself reminded me of those externalized amniotic sacs you see in sci fi movies where babies are gestated in mass uterus farms.
So what’s up with Lady Gaga and the whole birth thing? Is she obsessed? See the video after the jump.
Maybe she’s working out some stress, because she was quoted as being a little weirded out by babies. But my guess is she’s just onto the fact that birth is primal and weird and interesting, both conceptually and visually. Remember, this is a woman who wore a dress made of meat. Can a giant placenta be far behind?
