Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga appeared in Hong Kong -- part of her "Born This Way" tour -- in a long dress made of purple hair on Saturday. Compared with some other get-ups she's worn -- like the famous meat dress -- this doesn't look too bad. It kind of reminded me of another Lady who went our wearing hair -- though in Lady Godiva's case it was hair and nothing else. [Catwalk Queen]

Azealia Banks tweeted that she is to perform at the Met Gala, which she is attending as designer Alexander Wang's celebrity date. But then the tweet mysteriously disappeared, leaving folks wondering, will she or won't she perform? [N.Y. Post]
