Lady Gaga is a diva now

Lady Gaga was invited to perform at the Costume Institute Gala this year but refused to walk the red carpet and locked herself in her dressing room the entire night. It took forever to coax her out. Why they did that is beyond me. I’ve been trying to lock Gaga in a room for the past year.

“She literally wouldn’t come out,” says a spy. “Friends tried, [Warner Music exec] Lyor Cohen tried, no dice. Eventually, Vito Schnabel came over and got [artist] Terence Koh on the phone to talk to her, which helped. Koh and Oprah were the ones who finally coaxed her out.”

Once on stage, Gaga told the 700 assembled guests — including Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Diane von Furstenberg, Barry Diller and Mayor Bloomberg — how she got the gig. “I’ll never forget when Anna Wintour called me to play at this event, she called me and said, ‘I would like you to play at the Met gala, but I just want to make sure, because I’ve seen you perform before, that you won’t be swearing during the performance,’ ” Gaga explained. “So Anna, I will do my [bleep]-ing best!”

Later, at an after-party at the Mark Hotel, Pharrell Williams, Sean Combs, Usher and Justin Timberlake ended up having an impromptu jam session with DJ Cassidy. “Pharrell first jumped in and started singing ‘Beautiful,’ and then Puffy jumped up and started rapping to ‘All About the Benjamins.’ He even grabbed Anna Wintour into the deejay booth. Finally, Usher and Justin joined in.”

Jude Law, Sienna Miller and January Jones were among those at the Mark, but it was Katy Perry who attracted the most attention. “She was out of control,” says a spy. “She was wearing a dress that had LED lights, and the switch was near her boobs. She was literally having people grope her to turn the dress on.”

Whoa. Hold on a second. Not to turn this into a Katy Perry post, but the switch for her LED dress was near her breasts AND she let people grope her there to turn the lights on and off? Why wasn’t I invited to this thing? I could have been her date. Her dress would have gone great with my LED suit. The switch for that is near my crotch and you have to use your tongue to flip it. Unless you’re a guy, in which case, I’ll flip it for you, thank you very much.
