Spotted: Lady Gaga Wearing Pearls On Her Face And Rihanna Channeling A Cheetah

By George Loomis III

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

Lady Gaga had bigger issues than love and fame on her mind last night when she attended amfAR’s Annual New York Gala Fundraiser at Cipriani 42nd Street. The singer and M.A.C Viva Glam spokesperson strutted down the red carpet beside fellow spokesperson Cyndi Lauper. After making her way inside, Gaga performed “Future Love” to a crowd including Meryl Streep, Sharon Stone and Anna Wintour. It’s hard to say if Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna approved of Gaga’s daring and futuristic fishlike ensemble, but alas the event was an undeniable success, raising $1.2 million for AIDS research.

There’s no doubt that Rihanna’s fans are wild about her. But now we can rest assured the feeling’s mutual! In keeping with the knack for animal reincarnations from stars this week, Rihanna channeled her inner cheetah at a fan meeting today in Seoul, South Korea. After attending Super Bowl festivities in Miami over the weekend, Rihanna jetted to Japan — and then on Wednesday to Korea — to promote her album Rated R. For those unsure if Rihanna’s as “hard” as she says she is in her music… now you know for certain she matches her roaring fans in the most literal sense of the word! The singer debuted her new video “Rude Boy” today, but it doesn’t look like this is the kind of girl who tolerates rudeness.

Check out who else MTV Spotted!, including Zoe Saldana and Eliza Dushku at the amfAR event and Ludacris performing in Tampa.
