Corset loving VMA awards are usually a quiet affair but this year’s MTV video music awards didn’t go unnoticed, and with Lady Gaga’s track record in fashion, her futuristic corset outfit seemed tame. However, it wasn’t her skimpy corset which made her attract attention; it was her fake suicide on stage.
The MTV music awards were established in the Eighties as an alternative to the Grammys and is held annually in the US. Held earlier in September, performances by Janet Jackson, Katy Perry, Green Day and Pink. Lady Gaga, who performed in a white bra and brief combo, stunned the crowd by faking her death during her performance on stage. The 23 year old singer, pretended to stab herself in the chest while covering herself in fake blood. She disappeared off stage before reappearing hanging from a cord suspended from the roof. Understandably, anti-suicide campaigners have been disgusted by the act. She went on to win Best New Artist award and sported the silver futuristic style corset.
Taking away the spotlight was rapper Kayne West and his little outburst. Coming on stage after Taylor Swift had been given the award for best female video; he grabbed the microphone away from Taylor saying that the award should have gone to Beyonce. If you want to add a little drama to your life why not take notes from Gaga yourself and invest in a corset.
