Weird styling isn't new in the world of pop music. Madonna, Rihanna, Cyndi, Cher and even Katy Perry try to sell their music with 'outlandish' clothes and accessories which essentially serve as crowd-pullers. But what makes Lady Gaga different is her indifference towards looking sexy.
Most of the singers don't try to pull off a particular style if it isn't exactly flattering, but Gaga seem to have no qualms about looking borderline 'androgynous.' Her most outfits are designed to distort her body, cover it partially or completely, or mask what she naturally look like.
