Lady Gaga's egg coffin, Batman bubble butt: EW.com readers outraged, confused at low shock value

Posted on

Scott FoleyLady Gaga threw a wrench into the peaceful fabric of Crazy Town, of which she is mayor, by showing up to Sunday’s Grammy Awards encased in a giant egg, then “hatching” in a solid-color latex number with zero — zero! — random patches of material calling attention to her genital area. “This is pretty tame for her; most of her body is covered,” complained dee123 in the comment section of EW’s Grammys Red Carpet photo gallery. Meg Mon agreed. “She did add a few little Klingon bits on her forehead and shoulders. But for someone who is being ‘born’ into a performance, I expect something — bigger.” According to Allison, Gaga failed in more than one arena of fashion: “Not crazy enough to be shocking, not sane enough to be pretty,” she laments. Luckily, Ethan stepped in as the voice of reason. “I can’t believe you’re calling her tame when she came to the effin’ Grammys IN AN EGG. I love what Lady Gaga has done to life.”

Meanwhile, my favorite Gaga-related comment came from loyal reader Madd: “The leather outfit (pictured, bottom) reminded me of the Arrested Development episode where Tobias buys a ‘Leather Daddy’ outfit.” Oh, does it ever.

Do you still love what Lady Gaga has done to life? Vote!
