Lady Gaga knows more about everything than you do and she wants to make sure you understand that.
Well, maybe not everything, but definitely more about unnecessarily esoteric fashion facts than you. Here are some choice bits:
“Glam culture is ultimately rooted in obsession, and those of us who are truly devoted and loyal to lifestyle of glamour are masters of its history. Or, to put it more elegantly, we are librarians. I myself can look at almost any hemline, silhouette, bead work, or heel architecture and tell you very precisely who designed it first, what French painter they stole it from, how many designers reinvented it after them, and what cultural and musical movement parented the birth, death, and resurrection of that particular trend. So dear critics and bullies: get your library cards out, because I’m about to do a reading.”
And her take on that weird egg thing she rode in to the Grammys:
“There is no chicken or egg. It’s molecular. Cells give birth to cells. To put it more bluntly, the Hussein Chalayan vessel I wore at the Grammys wasn’t inspired by a chicken. It was stolen from an egg. But the transformation, the context, and the approach taken to reinterpret the meaning of birth and rebirth in terms of fame on a [expletive] red carpet — this is what creates the modernity of the statement. The past undergoes mitosis, becoming the originality of the future.”
But she does cite Lita Ford as an inspiration, so there’s that.
