[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] makes some pretty interesting fashion choices. She’s worn a bra and panties to a baseball game, a meat dress to an awards show, and now she’s combining safe sex and fashion for her latest get up.
Earlier this morning she was on Good Morning America decked out in latex. Apparently she’s really loving the latex look because she also wore it on stage at the GRAMMYs during her performance. What do you get when you cross a latex condom and Lady Gaga?
She was up bright and early decked out in flesh colored latex and a big white hat. So what was her latest fashion choice about? She said she was wearing a “latex-condom-inspired outfit” as part of her bid to promote AIDS awareness. Check out her outfit here.
“I want to get people started at home at a younger age with their children talking about HIV, talking about AIDS, talking about safe sex,” she explained. “My mother talked to me about sex at a young age, and she always taught me to be self-aware — that’s in my new song, ‘Born This Way.’ I say ‘My momma told me when I was young …’ My first experience with my mother that I remember mostly was when she would put her lipstick on in the morning and she would talk to me about life.”
Staying on message, Gaga then tied in the theme of the song with her MAC line, saying it is shame and stigma around the difficulty of talking to children about sex and AIDS that makes people not protect themselves.
” ‘Born This Way’ is about self love, and MAC AIDS Fund is about self love. … It is so much bigger than me,” she said. “It’s not about me at all. The song, when I wrote it, I just knew it was destined to reach so many people all over the world. The most humbling this for me this past weekend is watching the fans harness onto the record and … really enjoying the music and feeing uplifted and a sense of positivity.”
I love Lady Gaga, but you won’t see me rocking a latex outfit anytime soon!!! 🙂
