Britney Spears' teen heartthrob-inspired outfit was expected to blow everyone away on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet, but instead, a relatively unknown star stole the show: Z LaLa! Her garish black getup had everybody talking — and not necessarily in a good way.
But while the world now knows that Z LaLa has a taste for the unconventional, everything else remains a mystery. Clueless about this red carpet phenom? Here's the scoop:
In 2011, she released her debut album, Zilosophy, which was jam-packed with club-style hits.
Language is clearly Z LaLa's forte. While the average pop singer struggles to sing in just two languages, she's able to flawlessly execute songs in 14 different languages — including American Sign Language! Her very first single was performed in Hebrew, Urdu, Korean and several other languages.
Not only do their names rhyme, but both stars also have a thing for crazy outfits. More importantly, however, both are musically gifted and intent on honing their craft.
In 2013, Z LaLa famously covered the Eurythmics hit "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)." She definitely did the song justice!
Like Lady Gaga, Z LaLa is no stranger to criticism. In 2013, a ton of publications featured her on their worst-dressed lists in response to her odd look at that year's Billboard Music Awards. Additionally, she attracted a ton of negative attention for her decidedly unique look at the 14th Annual Latin Grammy Awards. More recently, she made quite the red carpet entrance at the 2015 American Music Awards, as evidenced in the interview clip below:
Z LaLa may not be the most popular lady on the red carpet, but she certainly knows how to get people talking. When it comes down to it, isn't that what the Billboard Music Awards are all about?
