What Will Lady Gaga's Next Mythical Creature Obsession Be?
By Noah Michelson
Last year Lady Gaga introduced us to what would become an ongoing obsession with mythical creatures when she revealed a unicorn tattoo on her thigh. Months later the horned beast became a central figure for her sophomore album Born This Way, which even featured a song called "Highway Unicorn." And you know what? We loved it. What self-respecting homo wouldn't?
But that was only the beginning of the pop star's penchant for imaginary animals. Last month Gaga performed "The Edge of Glory" on Le Grand Journal dressed as a mermaid (see video below), and lately she has been tweeting about a half-fish alter ego she's named Yuyi who was supposed to star in the video for "The Edge of Glory," but ultimately didn't. Rumors abound that Yuyi will finally make her video debut in a clip for Gaga's fourth single from Born This Way, which is still being determined.
In the meantime, Gaga has been making a splash around Australia, where she is currently on tour. Earlier this week she turned up on stage in a wheelchair with her scales showing once again.
So, with all this attention and attraction to mythical creatures, we're wondering which one will be Gaga's next muse? A sexy troll? A couture Medusa? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
