Eyes Wide Gaga: Mother Monster Channels Kubrick
Lady Gaga did not blink for a creepy two minutes during her VMAs performance on Sunday night.
The pop star opened the show with her latest song “Applause,” wearing an all-white outfit with headgear that was basically a piece of cardboard with a hole cut out. The camera zoomed in, and Gaga stared into TV viewers’ souls in a way that could almost match Jack Nicholson. Almost.
How does Mother Monster size up in a stare-down against Stanley Kubrick’s iconic trademark? We put the pop star to the test. Heeere’s Gaga!
