TIMBERRRRR! I’m sorry, but this is easily the funniest story of the week.
For most people, a long flight means donning floppy trousers, socks and earplugs that drown out the snoring and dribbling chap next to you. But not for Lady Gaga, who emerged at Heathrow airport fresh from New York dressed in an outfit that made her look like a cyborg from a sci-fi movie.
Not for her the hardy perennial Ugg boots or trainers. Instead, the pop star had squeezed herself into a bizarre mix of thigh-high black leather chaps and platform heel-less boots.
However, to her shame, the singer – who prides herself on her cutting edge and outrageous fashions made by her very own design team, Haus of Gaga – came crashing down as she lost her balance on the ridiculous boots. Although she tried hard to steady herself, the 24-year-old star still tumbled over as it became clear these boots, designed by Noritaka Tatehana, were most certainly not made for walking.
Jackass. It’s a damned shame she didn’t fall face-first into a toilet.
