Another Night, Another Barely-There Armani Catsuit for Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga exploded onto the American Idol stage last night donning a dazzling fishnet ensemble from Giorgio Armani while performing her hit new single, “Alejandro.” The Italian designer is a clear favorite of the statement-making star, whose out-of-this-world Grammy dress and stellar Monster Ball tour costumes were Armani’s creations. “To complement the spirit of Lady Gaga herself, I have let my imagination run free, and the outfit I have created for her for American Idol is pure fantasy,” the designer said in a release. The ever-busy chanteuse–who also performed at the Met Gala in a sheer Armani catsuit earlier this week–took to the stage in a silk mesh bodysuit, featuring embroidered Chantilly lace as well as sparkling crystals and jet beading. The look was completed with a silk organza cape, a dark hood and matching black patent stiletto boots. Though Lady Gaga looked absolutely amazing with her skin-tight look, we have to wonder if the dramatic ensemble was approved by the judges or deemed to be a “little pitchy.” Tell us: What do you think about Lady Gaga’s Giorgio Armani costume?

Lady Gaga is a talented singer and isn’t afraid of taking chances with her look. But she isn’t as original as people make her out to be – Madonna did this exact same thing in the early 80s!

Idol is pathetic. This is the second time they’ve had her on. They won’t let gay Lambert win but then they have gaga! ha

I predict that she will be washed out pretty soon.
Why does evil equal creative? She is a dark character.

The burning angel was not necessary

I absolutely believe that Gaga is the most interesting, entertaining performer out there right now.

However, I do think it is tiresome the people who are ready to crown her the “Queen of Pop” already. In MY day, we didn’t crown them until they had proven themselves with many years and many albums of exceptional work. She has potential, certainly, but she is more of a Duchess or maybe Princess. She’s not the Queen, yet.

There hasn’t been a true Queen since Madonna. Sorry, youngsters :) Someday, maybe.

Is it just me or does she look like she got in a fight with a fisherman’s boat…

Poor Armani… this is a classic case of why you should not drink and operate motorized machinery… (ex… sewing machine)

If you don’t like her then don’t watch her on TV. If you like her music then don’t listen. That’s very simple. No need to say bad things about others. Lady GaGa is hot and current, so deal with it. Either you like her or not, she’s making hit after hit and earn big money… I like her music because I’m young and fun and I love to dance. I enjoy my life and her music makes me happy. I’m going to her concert this summer, can’t wait…

I think she is totally awesome and inspiring in a world that lacks alot of diversity…YOU ROCK LADY GAGA and we need you to inspire the young ones and let them know that being new and different is truly a great thing, as long as no one is getting hurt or put down!

I love her music, she’s the only artis who doesn’t slang the words, she pronounces words correctly when sining. She has a European style when it comes to music and being ahead. As for her dress style & behavier at times, I just don’t get it. But Love her Music!!

Lady GaGa’s outfit and performance were obscene. The American Idol producers should be aware that so many of their viewers and audience members are young kids. Yes…the my t.v. channel can be changed…but I feel that a show geared toward family should be more responsible.

This performance reminded me of when Adam Lambert kissed a guy on stage during a performance. Anyhow I think Gaga is one of the best entertainers out there right now. She really delivers through her live performances and everyone knows her sense of style-it’s bold, creative and very sexy. However, there’s a time and place to show off those sexy costumes and I thought that she could have toned it down a bit that night. Many kids and young teens are tuned in and probably watching with other family members who might have felt somewhat uncomfortable. I didn’t feel good about that part but we all know Gaga feels more than comfortable in her own skin and no matter what her album sales always go through the roof!
