Lady Gaga is hardly known for her conservative ensembles, and yesterday she proved that she still has the shock factor as she attended a press conference sporting a black mask. When asked about the unusual choice of headwear she insisted that it's, "not just a mask, it's a contemporary art piece". She went on to explain how art and fashion are major influences for her music and her videos. I find it a bit unnerving that you cannot see her face and her expressions as she speaks, but she is certainly pushing boundaries with this unusual item. What do you think of Lady Gaga's arty mask?
