Lady Gaga Likens Her Leather Jacket To Dorothy's Slippers In MTV Special

Lady Gaga loves herself some leather (she wears various versions of the skin quite frequently), and if you ever wondered why, all will be answered in "Lady Gaga: Inside The Outside" on Thursday on MTV. During the hour-long documentary, Gaga explains her love of leather and why it is so important to her life and her style.

"This is how I get home. My leather jacket is like my Dorothy slippers," she said, referencing that famous footwear from "The Wizard Of Oz." "That's why I changed when we sat down. You said, 'I want to ask you about New York.' I said, 'You'd better get my leather.'"

"I wrote so many songs on this new album about New York. I mean every song on all my albums has some relationship to New York City, but one in particular, 'Marry The Night,'" she explains in the special airing Thursday at 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. "That record was about my husband, New York."
