Lady Gaga Does 'Wizard of Oz' Version of 'Applause' on GMA: VIDEO


Lady Gaga put on a variety of Wizard of Oz guises from Dorothy to Glinda in a performance of "Applause" on Good Morning America this morning. She sat down for an interview with Robin Roberts and Lara Spencer afterward in which she explained the performance:

"All of these outfits and wigs that I've been changing in over the years. This is my way of surviving. This is my way of getting to Oz to have all my dreams come true. Whatever we had to do to get past the evil monkeys and the Wicked Witch, Dorothy was able to transform in order to survive. By transforming into Glinda and then transforming at the end into the wizard who was just Dorothy herself, me."

  1. Um... It's pretty clear she never read the book, or even saw the movie. Dorothy never had to transform to get back to Kansas... She didn't turn into Glinda or the Wizard. If you are trying desperately so hard to be our icon, you better get our fairy tale right. Fail.

  3. I liked her better when she wore masks. It's kind of sad to witness someone who believes their own hype and begin a "creative phase" to find themselves. Unfortunately, their true self is not interesting or entertaining to people.

  4. I love and commend Gaga for her commitment to the stage. She gives her performance all she's got. Applause well deserved.

  5. What a desperate way to pander to the gay community. She is NOT my spokesperson and she doesn't have any talent.

  6. As Glinda tell Dorothy at the end of the movie "You had the power all along, just click your heels three times" No transformation needed. The power to realize your dreams is within you.

    And what was the apple about? That's not the Wizard of Oz. Talk about your fractured fairy tales.

  7. I love her more than ever! She wants to inspire! How bad is that?

  8. @William -The apple was from when Dorothy and the Tin Man trick the trees to throw apples at them so they will have something to eat.

  9. Four wigs, one hook, zero inspiration.

  10. I am so waiting the drug overdose. This chick is OVER.

  12. evidence the singularity has happened

  13. I'm calling it. Gaga has officially ran out of costume designs. I mean I was okay with the white box, but the Little Mermaid? And the Wizard of Oz?

    Hause of Gaga needs to take a break... travel a little bit, get inspired. And come back refreshed with new ideas.

    Steve McQueen (may he rest in peace) couldn't have been the only creative genius in the world.

  15. Can't say I'm really a Gaga fan, but I think that without question this woman can SING---she does have decent pipes, unlike many of the other current pop stars. (Yes, there's plenty of autotune in her songs, but she doesn't need it---she has a good voice.)

    Loved the poppy hats for the audience---great visual.

  16. Yep, exactly the type of comments I expected to read on Troll Road whenever a Lady Gaga story is posted.

    Like her or not, please save your vitriol for our real enemies. Stop wasting time hating and trolling a pop star.

  17. I thought it was cute. Okay, so maybe she intended something deeper and missed the mark, but for what it was, not bad.

  18. I agree QJ201...
    Why are most people negative? What kind of world does that make. I do not own a single Lady Gaga album and yet I can appreciate that she is well spoken, polite, intelligent and coherent and she sings very well and is a great musician.

  19. Agree with a few posters here. It's amazing how much energy people have for vitriol. There are a lot of artists I don't care for (none that I can say I hate or would wish death on like so many people seem to do with Gaga and some others) but I would certainly never waste any time watching a video or commenting on one of those artists. Who has that kind of time to waste?? I choose to focus my time and energy on those things/artists/etc. that I enjoy. Life's too short.

  20. love her voice

  21. She has a face for radio.

  22. It was a morning show on network television. You expected her to bleed profusely on stage or something? You queens are relentless.

    Posted by: brian | Sep 9, 2013 1:02:42 PM

  23. I love her creativity and her energy. And she does have a strong voice when "unfiltered". Her version of "The Lady is a Tramp" with Tony Bennett is evidence of that. So, not every song is a perfect anthem, let's cut Gaga a little slack, and quit all the hatin'.

  24. I wish someone would drop a house on HER!

    Posted by: Johnny | Sep 9, 2013 1:08:38 PM

  25. She is an enemy to the gay community. She uses us as marketing pawns.
