The Paparazzi singer certainly turned paparazzi heads on Tuesday with a very unfortunate wardrobe choice.
On Tuesday, June 23 Lady Gaga (29) held a cozy concert at the Rainbow Room. She wore denim shorts with an open tan jacket showing a white lace bra. An outfit that already left very little to the imagination – but later that evening she ditched the bra entirely!
She was spotted after the wardrobe alteration when she was leaving Amadeus Pizza restaurant in New York City. Unfortunately for her, the paparazzi was waiting outside and when she went to block her eyes from the flashes, she ended up flashing herself!
Normally, this kind of situation would be quite embarrassing. But it is hardly the first time that Lady Gaga has shown it all. She`s quite commonly known for her risqué style choices and outrageously revealing outfits.
In 2013 she interviewed with Glamour magazine about her style. She essentially said that her outfits are a way to mask her insecurities.
“I would say that I am [insecure]. Maybe it’s from the things I experienced in my past, you know? Being beautiful is not so fun when you’re in a business with all men. (…) It can actually get in the way. So in some ways, the outfits—these creations are because I don’t want to face the reality of what people want from a female pop star. Everybody always laughs because I feel so much more comfortable with, like, a giant paper bag on my whole body and paint on my face. Sometimes I try really hard to take it all off. But inevitably what’s underneath is still not a straight edge. And I don’t think it ever will be.”
Not entirely sure I`m buying that. Even though I am a huge fan of Lady Gaga`s talent, I think in order to be wearing a mask you have to actually be wearing something. She says she is trying to live outside of the box of what we expect from female pop stars but this kind of completely avoidable “nip slip” sticks her right back into the box she`s trying to live outside of.
Malfunction is defined as a failure to work normally or to stop functioning altogether. As such, I don`t know if we can justify calling this incident a wardrobe malfunction. An open, unbuttoned jacket acted like a normal, unbuttoned jacket would – by opening up. From a celebrity known for this kind of thing, maybe it`s time we acknowledge attention seeking behavior when we see it.
I`ll certainly grab a Lady Gaga CD to put in my car, but I won`t be flipping through magazines to be inspired by her style.
