|Lady Gaga in Chiba - June 2011|
Following her Toronto visit for the MuchMusic Video Awards last week, Lady Gaga caused a stir out in Tokyo in her visit to performing at MTV Video Music Aid Japan (held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba), lending her support to ongoing Disaster Relief. Despite rocking a variety of green Wigs during her Toronto stay which she wore upon arrival in Japan, she opted for a much shorter Blonde Do with trimmed bangs for her performance. She also painted on a pair of Anime-like eyes on her eyelids, giving the illusion that her eyes were open while they were actually shut.
Our Friends in Japan spotted her out in the artsy Rappongi district where she was coached by a Translator on how to tell Fans she loved them in Japanese and it would appear she’s finally mastered the term “Aishiteru”. Gaga appeared really to have been enjoyed her Shabu Shabu Meal (thinly sliced Beef cooked in a broth) that she is said to have returned again to the Restaurant later in the week before leaving, for a second helping.
Between greeting hoards of Fans, Rehearsals and a Press Conferences for MTV, Gaga also managed to slip-in some time for some affordably-priced Sushi and of course Shopping in the fashionable Shibuya district. She even visited a Pet Store near her Hotel to pass some time.
It is said the Gaga Security Team were quite strict during their Japanese stay and one Fan reports seeing her Bodyguard, speaking via a Translator, bar one unsuspecting Gentleman who actually was there to dine at the same Restaurant where she was dining, after being mistaken for an e-Bay Dealer. Wow, this isn't sounding familiar at all!
Thanks MiT as always for your generosity and fascinating reports. We love you!
