Having changed into a mountainous black strapless gown topped, this time, by spiked Mohawk peaks, the singer needed help getting to the stage, and once there she let out a "Yeah!" The cast of "Glee," who presented the award, gathered around her.
With 13 nominations and the prospect of several trips to the stage, Gaga added, "I didn't really quite think all the wins through. This outfit is too heavy to walk in."
In the Best Pop Video category "Bad Romance" was, once again, up against serious competition, including B.o.B's "Nothin' on You" (featuring Bruno Mars), Beyoncé's swagged-up "Video Phone" extended remix (also featuring Lady Gaga,) Katy Perry's "California Gurls" (featuring Snoop Dogg) and Ke$ha's party anthem "Tik Tok."
Apart from dealing with her fashion fiasco, Gaga again thanked many of the people involved in the production of the video. She also paid props to her ever-faithful "Little Monsters," who she advised to embrace their uniqueness because, as she rocker-growled, "We were born this way, baby!!"
