I assumed Lady Gaga would be making a grand entrance at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards given that she is on the brink of the release of her much-anticipated album Born This Way, but once again I am completely taken aback by just how grand.
Actually, “grand” may not be the appropriate word here. Words like bizarre or surreal would be more fitting to describe the pseudo-transparent egg-like sarcophagus in which Lady Gaga was toted onto the red carpet by four muscular dudes.
You can barely make out Lady Gaga inside the egg. She appears to be wearing black gloves and black sunglasses. (Surprise, surprise!) Here’s a photo I’ve slightly altered in Photoshop so you could see her better (Click to enlarge):
My guess is that the notion of an egg or cocoon is symbolic of Lady Gaga’s rebirth with the new album and its anthemic title track “Born This Way,” released on Friday. As of this moment I haven’t seen any photos of LG emerging from the egg, but I am guessing there will be some soon so keep checking in!
Here’s a view of the back of the egg, which appears to feature some sort of port/camera/breathing hole?
