Lady Gaga was on bridesmaid duty this weekend for the wedding of her close friends Sarah Nicole Tanno and Tim Stewart. Both work with Gaga, Tanno as her makeup artist and Stewart as a guitarist. So how did Gaga dress for the occasion? She was as pink as possible: The singer wore a pink dress with bright pink hair. She shared two shots of her look on her Instagram, including one with another bridesmaid, makeup artist Phuong Tran:
Gaga debuted her bright pink hair on her Instagram last month when she celebrated A Star Is Born‘s album going six times platinum. “A year ago, A Star was Born, and here we are 6 times pink platinum,” she captioned the shot.
Gaga spoke to Oprah in this month’s ELLE about whether she feels pressure to outdo herself artistically these days. “Not anymore,” Gaga said. “I used to, though. Oprah, I’ve got to level with you 100 percent: I used to try to wrap my brain as heavy as I could around what I could do to…. Instead of being shocking (I used to say ‘shock art’ or ‘performance art’), I would use the word ‘bemuse,’ which is basically putting the audience in a state of confusion where they can’t look away. I used to just go, ‘What am I going to do next to get people’s attention?'”
Gaga explained her reasoning behind that meat dress and how she has always tried to be an activist on top of an artist.
“The meat dress, quite frankly, I didn’t think it was going to be as shocking to everyone as it was,” Gaga said. “But that’s just me. I have a sort of eccentric brain, so for me, I was like, Of course this makes sense. I’m showing up to make a statement about ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell.’ I went to the event with soldiers who were discharged from the army because they were out, or they were found out, and to me, if you’re willing to give up your life for your country, does it matter what your sexual orientation is or what your gender identity is? For me, it was like, ‘Flesh is flesh,’ so that was the intention of the meat dress. For me, that wasn’t shocking; it was shocking to the world. And I have to say, it was quite recently—after doing A Star Is Born, and working with Bradley Cooper, and my experience even with winning an Oscar—I sort of just went to myself, ‘You have a much greater mission on this earth than to freak the hell out of people. Your mission is to give people a form of love through your art that lifts them up.’”
