Donning a hat with a telephone perched upon it and performing her single "Telephone" from a British-style payphone box,
"He was the kindest human being. I feel left with nobody to inspire me any more," she said of McQueen, who committed suicide last month. Not only were they friends, he designed many of her looks, including the lobster claw heels in her "Bad Romance" video.
Gaga admitted that she has very few friends in the entertainment industry, noting that when she attended the Brit Awards last month, where she paid tribute to McQueen, "I didn't speak to anyone at the Brits." She added that she feels disconnected from the industry. "I'm an outcast from the music industry," she explained. "I don't have any friends in the music business."
As for her outlandish appearance, she said she wouldn't have it any other way. "I would rather die than have my fans not see me in a pair of high heels. I'd never give up my wigs and hats for anything. You see legendary people taking out their trash. I think it's destroying show business," she said. "I feel completely detached from the celebrity world. You never see me falling out of nightclubs. Be whatever you want to be, it's not about emulating me ... it's all right to be different."
And in case anyone was wondering if Gaga is seeing anyone these days, the answer is no. She said that right now her only relationship is with her career. "I don't have time to get to know anybody. I'm single and alone ... nobody would put up with my craziness."
In addition to "Telephone," the BBC reports that she also sang "Brown Eyes" from The Fame. And Gaga shared her love for everybody British. "There is no greater lady than the queen," she said of meeting her last year. "People in Britain are the ones who've really been my friends."
