When I saw Lady Gaga's Australian arrival on the news, I thought two things (my thoughts were loud, thus requiring capital letters in my transcription):
IT'S IMPORTANT FOR THE PUBLIC TO KNOW SHE'S IN OUR COUNTRY (rolls eyes).
And, DID SHE SIT IN A PLANE SEAT WITH THOSE GIANT SHOULDER-PADS AND COKE CANS IN HER HAIR DURING THE WHOLE FLIGHT FROM NEW ZEALAND TO SYDNEY (was she uncomfortable??), or did she wear a tracksuit and change in the loo before she exited the plane?
Lady Gaga polarises me.
I don't like her music except for the Kid Cudi version of Poker Face.
I don't think she's a pop-music genius.
I've never seen a video clip of hers except the new one where she's in prison wearing very innoative cigarette sunglasses...
...but I've heard she does raunch well, and errr...raunchily.
I don't really understand her because I haven't taken the time to do so.
I think her clothes are sometimes a little bit (ok, A LOT) ridiculous.
And who knew, with all of these dislikes, I would be writing a blog entry about her.
But I do love how she can get away with wearing the things she does. I'm not saying I LOVE the clothes/objects she wears. But I love the creativity and brazenness of it all. I love the excess.
There's something refreshing and humourous about seeing her take fashion to the extreme. That she doesn't save her outrageous outfits for the stage or her videos, but seems to do every day (for a famous person) things like exiting an airport in outrageous get-up.
Like these (click on the picture for image source):
I wish I could have my hair curled around coke cans and wear nothing but a bubble suit. Those outfits are probably personally restrictive - I don't know how she sits down in some of the outfits - but utter fashionable freedom.

Considering I was wondering why I was commenting on Lady Gaga on my blog, this has been quite fun to research!
