Lady Gaga Wanted To “Represent The Future” In Alexander McQueen Tribute

February 17th, 2010 // 1 Comment

In yet another awe-inspiring and shocking performance, Lady Gaga paid homage to Alexander McQueen in her set at the Brit Awards Tuesday. The singer changed her entire concept for the performance after news of the designer’s death, who was a friend of the singer. The more serious acoustic performance was set to all white costumes and background in what Gaga described to MTV News as a more futuristic performance.

“I wanted to do a very, very forward performance, something that I felt
was a true representation of the future,” she said. “I re-inspired my song ‘Telephone’ into an acoustic, sort of
jazz version, and then I went into a song called ‘Dance in the Dark,’
and I used a brand-new instrument that the Haus of Gaga has built named
Emma.”

Ah, so that thing has a name! But in all seriousness it’s nice to see that pop music doesn’t have to be pre-manufactured and that artists (hello!) let their inspiration change their plans. Gaga’s memorable performance shouldn’t overshadow the fact that the singer won all three Brits for which she was nominated, including Best International Album, Best International Female Solo Artist and International Breakthrough Act.

    Why in the hell did you have to include the picture of her cellulite/thigh? The performance was awesome and she’s a good person that did right by her friend Lee McQueen…how about a small bit of respect for that?
