|Lady Gaga in Toronto for MuchMusic Video Awards|
Despite it being Father's Day and also having received the unfortunate news of her Friend Clarence Clemons' passing last night, Lady Gaga demonstrated her consummate professionalism, soldiering through two Rehearsals today for the MuchMusic Video Awards, after skipping last evening's Run-through.
Gaga dazzled not only in one, but a total two Performances this evening both opening and closing the Awards. She kicked-off the evening with a Medley of The Edge of Glory (ft. Clemons) and Government Hooker, appearing in a leather-studded Bodysuit and a Turquoise Bob Wig, performing from a maze of Ladders. Watch it here.
She closed-out the Festivities by returning to the Stage in a Cocoon for Born this Way. Donning a long turquoise Wig and high-shouldered feathery Get-up seen prior on her The Monster Ball Tour, later removed to reveal a yellow Leopard-print Blazer. Gaga wound-up smearing blood upon herself, including her Wig by the end of it all. Watch it here.
Gaga was awarded International Video of the Year for Born this Way and also Ur Fave International Video soon during the Broadcast. Congagaluations!
Earlier in the day, Gaga was spotted leaving her Hotel on multiple occasions in her SUV, rolling down the window and waving to Fans. She at one point promised hoards of Fans-in-waiting that she'd return later to greet them, although this opportunity never came. Fans who camped-out at MuchMusic however, were lucky enough to get their Pictures taken with her and also get Autographs also. Yesterday she had greeted Fans at her Hotel.
Alas, after my eleventh try getting a Photo with Gaga - having tried all weekend - I remain one an unlucky Monster after witnessing many Fans around me getting their wishes fulfilled and I'm happy for them! Unfortunately, I was unable to hand Gaga bound Fan Book I made with love for her of Photos I've taken of her since 2008. One day, perhaps... where is the Justice?
Despite rumours of Gaga staying in the City another day, she is scheduled to visit Japan tomorrow, providing some cheer to a nation saddened by much Disaster of late.
