Lady GaGa: “Christina Aguilera Style Stealing Boosted My Fame”
Well what do ya know, Lady GaGa has admitted that her burgeoning career got a big boost when Christina Aguilera was accused of stealing her look earlier this year.
The multiplatinum-selling singer performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in September wearing platinum blonde hair extensions, a black catsuit, and a mask, leading many critics to claim she was swagger jacking Lady GaGa’s signature.
“Well, it was very flattering when it happened. She’s such a huge star and if anything I should send her flowers, because a lot of people in America didn’t know who I was until that whole thing happened.
“It really put me on the map in a way, though of course I don’t just want to be remembered for the Christina Aguilera scandal.”
“There are no hard feelings with Christina at all,” Lady says. “What it showed me was, even though I’ve only been on the commercial market for seven or eight months, I’ve really burned graphic images of my visuals onto the irises of my fans.”
“They saw a huge, Grammy-winning star who’s been around for years and they recognized Lady GaGa. That to me is quite an accomplishment.”
