Come on, Lady Gaga’s Victoria’s Secret performance wasn’t that awkward

Lady Gaga apparently had a bad night at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but I watched the clip, and I don’t think it was as awkward as some are making it out to be.

Sure, Gaga hits a few bad notes, and sure, she seems a little bit like she’s unsure what to do with herself up on that catwalk, but all in all, she’s out there looking great and doing her thing.

In the clip, Gaga sang her rendition of “Million Reasons,” which might be the problem in and of itself. While “Million Reasons” is a great ballad we can all appreciate, it’s sort of an awkward song to listen to while naked ladies are prancing around. I need “Just Dance” or “Bad Romance” to get me in the mood. “Million Reasons” just falls flat on the mood of the show, in my opinion.

And if you’re Gaga standing on the middle of that catwalk with a bunch of leggy bombshells, what the heck are you supposed to do? Just stand there? At least Gaga tried to be interactive. At least she tried to become part of the show.

I think the fashion showrunners should have put her at the beginning of the catwalk with a big spotlight on her for this particular song. Save the catwalk prancing for a more upbeat tune, to be sure.

Personally, I just wish she could have done this on the catwalk.

Also, just because Gaga had one performance that wasn’t jaw-dropping doesn’t mean she didn’t slay the rest of the evening.
