Lady Gaga Explains Exploding Tits

Lady Gaga made her breasts explode at the MuchMusic Video Awards last night.

The fired-up funbags were part of a surreal live medley performance of “LoveGame” and “Poker Face” that involved an erotic subway ride dance sequence which devolved into a fight between her and some transit cops all flanked by bondage-geared backing dancers.

GaGa later said at a press conference the reason for the boobie blast was because there was some doubt MuchMusic would be able to put together her elaborate subway car set.

“The bra, actually, it was a funny story,” she said. “When I was speaking to MuchMusic, they were having problems figuring out how to build that subway train and get it on and off the stage. And I said, ‘Well, if you can’t build my subway train, I’m going to blow my tits up on stage.’

“I was in Hawaii, and I said, ‘We need to blow my tits up on stage — I’m thinking conical bra, ode to Madonna, fire.’ And David LaChapelle was in the background screaming, ‘Lactate! It should lactate!’

“It was inspired by Helmut Newton. So we built the bra as an in-case-the-subway-wasn’t-built, but we decided to use both anyway.
“My new name is Hot Tits.”

Earlier in the evening, Gaga won the best international video by an artist award for “Poker Face.” Her acceptance speech featured her yelling “To God and the gays!” while hoisting her trophy in the air.

Here is one of many YouTube clips of the performance.

As anyone who lives near Toronto’s Queen West district is fully aware, the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards just happened over the weekend, dramatically disrupting everyone’s lives for the sake of a giant teenager-baiting street party/live television event.

I’ve been to a number of these over the years in a professional capacity so I wrote about some of the best and worst MMVA performances for Huffington Post Music Canada.

While Sarah was on the MuchMusic Video Awards red carpet this year she got to speak to electro-rocker Diamond Rings, who was debuting a new look he called “Max Headroom meets Klaus Nomi.”

Being big Max fans in this household we’ve been entirely amused ever since.

MMVA 2012: Carly Rae Jepsen Day

Sarah was assigned to cover the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards on Sunday for AOL Music Blog.

This was mostly fine because it was basically a Carly Rae Jepsen coming out party and she’s relatively onside for the CRJ.

She was somewhat less onside for the latest crop of Much VJs (who are these people?), but whatcha gonna do? MuchMusic is firmly demographic television these days.

To read her recap, click here.
