Lady Gaga, she hardly needs any introduction, always been impressive in whatever she did. And again the singer proved the same on Monday night when she stopped by "Late Show With David Letterman" to chat it up on the day her Born This Way album was released.
Wearing a black mask, barely there black boy shorts, knee-high lace-up leather boots, a black jacket over a black rubber bra, and another of her Morticia Addams-style black and blonde wigs, Gaga clearly put the late-night legend on edge with her odd behavior. She began by reaching out and complimenting his orange tie while stroking it, prompting the unflappable Letterman to quip, "Why stop?"
Dave, South African-American musician asked Gaga, "You have a mask on. Does this represent something or we don't care what this represents?" he asked her.
"I'm Batman," Gaga shot back, humming a bit of the Dark Knight's old-school TV theme. "What are you wearing, I mean, what aren't you wearing, I mean it's great, don't get me wrong," he stammered when asking about her revealing get-up. Gaga explained that she only liked the jacket, so that's the part she chose to wear. "You and I are very different in that way," Letterman responded. "I have never thought to myself, 'I'm just going to wear my underpants.' "
"Why not, I'm sure you'd look nice," Gaga said, taking off her mask. "You'd be surprised," she added, to which he cracked, "Yes, I'd be very surprised ... and you'd be surprised also ... and so would the local authorities."
When conversation turned to Gaga's famous egg, which she busted out of again on "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend, she wondered what it would be like to get the funnyman in one of her oval creations. "I don't think I'd fit," Letterman demurred. "Maybe we could get in together," she replied. "You could be the yolk."
After a series of inane questions, Gaga grabbed Letterman's sheet of notes and ripped it up. "I'm just so fed up with all of this," she grumped before handing back on half of the sheet and stuffing the other in her mouth to chew up.
