Lady Gaga: fashion is “unlimited” like jazz music – Music News
The ‘Stupid Love’ hit singer performed songs from her new album as a duet with jazz icon Tony Bennett, ‘Love For Sale’, and oozed old Hollywood glamor in a beaded feather number, before she quickly turn into a
elegant black velvet dress.
And the “Born This Way” singer recalled how her 29-year-old fashion designer brother created dresses that are “authentic” to who she “really” is.
Gaga is famous for her outrageous ensembles over the years, from the iconic meat dress to the chicken outfit, but the “A Star is Born” star says her true personal style is that of a jazz singer.
Gaga said: “In terms of fashion, I would say there is nothing that is a limit because when it comes to jazz music, jazz music is limitless.
In terms of chord figures, the way the music is structured, it is for me the most liberated music of all music. And I’m mostly inspired by family and my sister made the costumes that I wear during the show tonight and she’s watched me be a jazz singer since I was in my early pre-teens when I ‘was 11 and 12 so she knows how to do something for me that feels genuine to who I really am. I guess what I would say is that when we think of clothing in terms of jazz, we think of authenticity, we don’t think of an idea. And while there was jazz in the 1920s, jazz lived way beyond the 20s, like now in 2021. And we think it’s jazz too. “
