Lady Gaga has been accused of copying pop icon Madonna for years. Now it seems the Poker Face singer has moved on to a younger fashion trailblazer: Selena Gomez.
The 27-year-old matched the black lace number with a shiny jet-black hook-studded pant suit that was fitted tightly to her thin frame. Selena went a more feminine route by having the corset peep through an opened royal blue dress that had a thigh high slit. The Love You Like a Love Song darling classed up her ensemble with oversized green earrings, red nails and pointy heels.
Gaga and Selena’s corsets aren’t exactly the same, however. Gaga’s corset appears to have been cut in half, missing the bottom half’s lace and patent leather design, whereas Selena’s covers her entire torso. This sartorial robbery comes at an important time for the multi-talented performer who has been promoting her new album ARTPOP furiously. Gaga’s album doesn’t drop till Nov. 11 and she has several appearances scheduled to support this new artistic endeavour.
On Wednesday she released a minute long snipped of her new song Swine. The lyrics include, ‘I know, I know, I know, I know you want me / You’re just a pig inside a human body / Squeal, squeal, squeal… / You’re just a pig inside, swine.’ She later added a few more Swine lyrics onto her Twitter account: ‘Maybe I should have a little more / Just to stay out of my mind? / ‘Cause it’s when I’m not thinkin’ with you / That I act like a swine.’
One of Gaga’s biggest appearances comes on September 1 when she debuts an hour’s worth of new music at the iTunes Music Festival in London. Expect her to raise some more style eyebrows when it comes to her upcoming appearances. If anything, Gaga is predictable for making unpredictable fashion waves. She was just Born That Way!
