Lady Gaga and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu look totes adorbz here... OR IS IT?!?!?! Wait.
So, we already know that Lady Gaga is the music world's queen of pop cultural references, from her various Grace Jones-meets-David Bowie style moments to the Hitchcock allusions in the lyrics of "Bad Romance" -- oh, and shout-out to "reverse Warholian expeditions," duh.
But with this latest Instagram that the "Applause" singer posted yesterday, we're beginning to wonder if she's starting to sprinkle some of Japanese pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu into her postmodern potpourri. Obvs, Gaga has been rocking her hair bow for years now, but there's something about the styling and stuffed animal "Swine" that we just can't put our finger on... But we think it involves a plot for world domination. Just go with us on this one.
Check out our super plausible theory involving Lady Gaga and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, plus more photos after the jump.
If we learned anything from the movie "Mean Girls," it's that you can't just ask people why they're white. BUT, if we learned two things from the movie, it's that big hair? ALWAYS FULL OF SECRETS. Notice any similarities between Gaga and Kyary's monstrous hair bows-gone-feral below?
Find out what happens when hair bows stop being polite, and start getting real.
Call us crazy, but we think that it could indicate an secret alliance between the two performers. Could they be part of secret, world-dominating society that eats hip-hop's beloved Illuminati for breakfast? (Illumi-Nutty Bunches Of Oats? New World Order-Os??) Are they the eastern and western representatives for a Dracula-obsessed cult of monsters, bent on conquering the planet through super infectious dance-pop? #ChecksOut
Or no... What if Mother Monster and the singer behind the aptly titled "Invader Invader" are really THE SAME PERSON. They do both have a penchant for outrageous makeup and clothing, not to mention identity-concealing forty-pound wigs...
The evidence grows stronger and stronger! Gaga, what do you think about this BRILLIANT theory? ARE YOU REALLY ALSO J-POP STAR KYARY PAMYU PAMYU, AND ARE YOU TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD?!?!
GAH! She's escaped!! #TheTruthIsOutThere
