Meet the woman who inspired Lady Gaga.
‘Poker Face’ singer Lady Gaga’s outrageous outfits and crazy hairstyles have been attributed to a woman friend of hers, who is also her mentor.
New York party fixture and go-go dancing DJ, Lady Starlight, revealed how she created many of her over-the-top outfits and persuaded Lady Gaga to parade around on stage in skimpy PVC undies and Indian headdresses.
“It’s crazy knowing that the biggest star in the world was inspired by me,” the Mirror quoted Starlight, real name Colleen Martin, as saying.
Lady Starlight will be deejaying and performing at the Huxley in Washington DC.
And being Lady Gaga’s official deejay and mentor you never know who may show up with Lady Starlight (wink).
