Lady Gaga stuns the audience at the MTV VMAs 2011: video

While the world’s fashion critics waited with baited breath for Lady Gaga to take the stage at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards no one had any idea what they were about to see.

The always eccentric and shocking star stunned the crowd as she performed dressed in drag, donning a scruffy looking ensemble of a white T-shirt and black trousers with a black Danny Zucco style wig and make up to draw out her masculine features.

Beginning the song at her piano, Lady Gaga then launched into the more up-tempo part of the track, which saw a surprise appearance from Queen’s Brian May on guitar. Lady Gaga won two awards at the ceremony – Best Female Video and Best Video With A Message for ‘Born This Way’.
