From Gaga to a Lady: Singer transforms herself mid-flight

By Andrea Magrath

Lady: Singer Lady Gaga arrives in Los Angeles from Sydney looking elegant in a moody yet feminine outfit

She's never been one to adhere to the usual comfortable in-flight clothing most passengers travel in.

But after boarding her flight out of Sydney wearing a leather gown and enormous floppy hat with a peekaboo hole, Lady Gaga's appearance as she arrived at LAX looked downright normal.

The singer emerged from her flight in Los Angeles looking elegant and feminine in a form-fitting dress, pantyhose and heels after changing mid-flight.

Gaga looked rather sombre compared to her usual taste in the moody get-up, which included towering Christian Louboutin heels, a hat and Louis Vuitton case.

She looked like she was emulating the clichéd look of a Mafia wife with the black outfit, long red talons and oversize sunglasses.

It is a rare sight for fans to see the 25-year-old in such regular clothing; the bizarre get-up she wore leaving Australia was far more commonplace in Gaga's wardrobe.

The singer looked a little glum after her long-haul flight, despite telling her 11 million Twitter followers that she's landed to the exciting news that her Monster Ball concert special had been nominated for five Emmy awards.

The past 24 hours haven't been all positive though. The singer's account on YouTube has been shut down after she allegedly breached copyright laws.

Gaga's account, which has received a staggering 1.6 billion views, is currently creating fans with the message: 'This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube's copyright policy.'

According to Time Out Tokyo, it was the video that Gaga posted of her performance on Fuji TV programme SMAP x SMAP in Japan that caused the breach.

In addition, Lady Gaga is currently the target of disability groups who are outraged by her use of a wheelchair as a prop during her Sydney show this week.

During the performance at Sydney Town Hall, Gaga wheeled herself on stage to sing her song You and I. She has previously used a wheelchair in the music video for Paparazzi.

In a statement to RadarOnline, Jesse Billauer, founder of the Life Rolls On Foundation, fumed: 'I haven’t seen Lady Gaga’s performance, but respect her artistic expression as an artist.

Since this isn’t the first time she has used a wheelchair in her performances, I invite her to learn more about the 5.6 million Americans who live with paralysis.

'I extend a personal invitation to Lady Gaga to attend one of our Life Rolls On events where quadriplegics and paraplegics surf, skate, and snowboard, so she can see how much is possible beyond a wheelchair.

'Maybe that will be most shocking to her of all. They, like me, unfortunately, don’t use a wheelchair for shock value.'
