Lady Gaga walked away with a trio of awards at the BRITS last night and set the Press all a-twitter with her look. She arrived looking as though she belonged on top of one of those tacky, frilly toilet roll holders, but then stripped down to a racy, lacy little number. Personally, I love this kind of showmanship. Whenever she appears you can expect the unexpected and last night’s Madame Pompadour-wigged look made me think back to someone else who isn’t too bad at a bit of a showmanship – Elton John!
I don’t mind admitting that I’m a Lady Gaga fan. Her track ‘Just Dance’ could well be the anthem for many young girls now – a good pop and dance track that tells it how it is. Yes, she’s a talented singer and songwriter of generally leave-your-brains-at-the-door pop, but I suspect there is much, much more to come from her. Clearly surrounding herself with an equally talented, creative and innovative team, I’m definitely reminded of pop icon Madonna. It’ll be interesting to see how things pan out for her.
