Lady GaGa Never Wears Pants, But May Launch a Pants Collection
Lady GaGa, who has made a name for herself for her wacky fashion choices and distaste for wearing pants (in addition to topping music charts with poppy singles such as "Just Dance"), is reportedly in the works of starting a fashion collection. She recently admitted that she "couldn't wait" to launch her own line - and some circles are reporting that the line in question is actually a pants line.
Or, rather — a rumored “pants line”. Don’t know what that means? Neither do we: in fact, we kind of thought not wearing pants was part of her shtick.
The singer is often seen wearing leotards, bodysuits, spandex, and other gawdy garments. She has a clear affection for monstrous shoulder pads, spikes, and similar types of upper-body adornments.
Akon, the rapper who discovered her, responded to criticisms on GaGa's wardrobe:
“People dissed her because of the way she dresses, but she’s hot. Everyone wants to look like her. She’ll walk around in London in her underwear and you watch, everyone will catch on.”
Lady GaGa recently likened her habit of going pantless to a form of art:
"I just don't feel that it's all that sexy. It's weird. And uncomfortable. I look at photos of myself, and I look like such a tranny! It's amazing! I look like Grace Jones, androgynous, robo, future fashion queen. It's not what is sexy. It's graphic, and it's art. But that's what's funny: Well, yeah, I take my pants off, but does it matter if your pants are off if you've got eight-inch shoulder pads on, and a hood, and black lipstick and glasses with rocks on them? I don't know. That's sexy to me. But I don't really think anybody's d--- is hard, looking at that. I think they're just confused, and maybe a little scared. It's more Manson to me than it is sexy."
Surely, if Lady GaGa is indeed set to launch a pants collection, it will earn top marks as the most ironic colletion of 2009.
