Lady Gaga in spage-age chain mail at the MTV EMAs: too much or not enough?


Last night, the MTV Europe Music Awards were held at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I’ve already subjected you to Katy Perry’s 1950s-inspired, faux bobby-soxer, day-glo nightmare. Now here’s Lady Gaga, who struggled to hold all four of her awards (Best Song; Best Video; Best Female; and Biggest Fans) in her tiny little arms while wearing what I can only describe as a space-age chain mail getup. Here’s a clearer look at the dress itself, which is almost entirely see-thru but does take care to protect Gaga’s (nonexistent) modesty with some flesh-colored nip guards:


And of course, most of her ass was showing too. Sitting down in this dress must have made her cheeks look like Belgian waffles:


Justin Bieber took some time away from his enduring paternity drama to grab a few awards — Best Pop and Best Male — which goes to show everyone that European teens have equally horrific taste in teen idols as their American counterparts:


Meanwhile, Selena Gomez didn’t walk the pink carpet with her boyfriend, but that doesn’t mean anything. She was on hand to host the event and, from all accounts, performed her duties in a competent fashion while wearing a frou-frou mini-dress:


From the front, Selena’s dress was nothing more than a fussy affair, but it got a whole lot more interesting with a lovely back view:


Meanwhile, Bar Refaeli looked utterly disinterested (with hair to match) while wearing a hideous mullet dress. It seems like Bar really could’ve rocked this dress without the extra fabric hanging down behind:


Bar’s dilemma only grew worse when she poufed out the mullet, which someone really should’ve accidentally detached by stepping upon it:


Meanwhile, Hayden Panettiere was on hand to present Best Song and, while onstage, was interrupted by a fully nude male streaker. You can see the (obviously NSFW) video here. Hayden didn’t feign surprise very convincingly at the sight of her naked companion, and she also made the grave error of wearing a glorified Rorschach blot:


Jersey also represented by sending Jenni “J-Woww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. All things considered, Snooki looks pretty good here, and I appreciate that her rack isn’t hanging out all over the place. As for J-Woww, this one-shouldered, shapeless dress was weighed down by her girls and does nothing to flatter her otherwise (bolt-ons notwithstanding) amazing figure:


Then there was Jessie J, who I simply don’t understand. She wore no less than three equally hideous outfits for the event:




David Hasselhoff must have a contractual agreement to appear every year at the EMAs. Fortunately and by all reports, he wasn’t drunk this time. Unlike in 2009. Go Hoff!

    Selena looks gorgeous. She has really good taste. I love her dress. She is so cute! Im guessing she didnt walk with Bieber bc in those heels she would be a foot taller than him.

  2. Wildone says:

    Lady Gaga: I like the dress.

    Justin: looks like a girl

    Selena: looks cute

    Jenni and Snooki: look as cheap as the dress their wearing all that money can’t buy class or a fashion sense.

    Jessie J: might be bad but I give her credit for knowing what fits her body type.

  3. wunder says:

    Re GaGa, it’s both: Too much AND not enough!

    (Did her assistant spend the night before the awards show cutting up small pieces of coke cans then stapling them together early the next day?)

    The tacky black thong underneath: Is this a salute to the Jersey Shore? . . . She should at least put on a flesh tone-or perhaps a silver thong. . . but maybe I’m being too harsh and the black thong is just the right level for this whole outfit. Maybe one shouldnt over-expect with chain mail. . . The best thing about her outfit is the green glittery eyebrows. She shoulda worked off of that and expanded from there.

    Selena wins!! She looks so good here. Love, love the back of the dress. She shows Bar how to do it!

    Oh, and Gaga: who cares?

  5. JIL says:

    gaga and biber are the biggest “stars” today. THIS IS SO SAD. ARMAGEDDON IS COMING. THANK GOD I’M TOO OLD FOR THAT CRAP.

  6. Gee says:

    Lady gagas dress is ok, the rest of her is barf.

  7. Mr.Chang says:

    Love the Gaga dress. Her look is a bit cleaner than usual here. I like that.

    Who is this Jessie J Figure? I would have liked the second dress though, on Gaga.

    And is it just the image/angle, or does Hasselhoff have extremely skinny legs here?

    And could those lacy/Rohrschach-desaster dresses already vanish?

    Potato in Chainmail.

    November Rain wedding dress-inspired skirts are having a moment. I hope it’s a quick moment.

  9. Zigggy says:

    I don’t like any of those dresses. Actually, I kinda like that leopard print one. I don’t know who Jessi J is.

  11. sally says:

    I like GaGa’s make up.

  12. LisaMarie says:

    Thar first Jessie J look reminds me of Mila Jovovich in The Fifth Element. Looked better in the movie.

  13. RocketMerry says:

    There was a blind about a girlfriend dumping the boyfriend because the line reported form his hook-up/baby-mama was exactly the same he used on her (“Imma virgin! Let’s f+ck without protections!”), thus proving he actually slept around.
    If this is true, poor Selena.

  14. truthful says:

    Jenni and Snooki look horrible!

    GaGa couldn’t find nude underwear?
    hate her hair…dress not too bad, at least its not made of meat or pubic hair…at this point. smdh.

    Was Adele there?? or is she in treatment for her throat? I would have loved to have seen her.

  15. Day says:

    Gaga really is tiny, isn’t she? I would put her at 5′. I don’t even have an opinion on her wacky outfits anymore. Kind of predictable. And, I like MTN but the performance was dry to me. She needs a better choreographer b/c her routines, for the most part, look awkward.

    Selena looks so good. I absolutely love that dress.

    Bar’s body is the absolute TRUTH. She is gorgeous, so I will ignore that mess of a dress.

  16. maria says:

    I’m sooooooooo pissed!
    Why is Selena Gomez hosting the EUROPEAN Music Awards??????? They should pick a EUROPEAN presenter!!! Who is Selena Gomez??? I’m going to write a complain to MTV: you suck!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. original kate says:

    whenever gaga is concerned one need not ask the question at all; the answer is she is ALWAYS too much.

    you’re welcome.

  18. Franny says:

    Selena has great legs! I want.

    Snooki’s legs look good too.

  19. ShanKat says:


    ”Imma virgin! Let’s f+ck without protections!”


  20. Alexa says:

    Shid! I like all three of those Jessie J-girl’s outfits. They’re totally FIERCE, imho!

  21. Dreamy K says:

    The Hoff, putting the juice back in douche.

  22. harfang says:

    I ever thought Id say this, but since you asked, the Gaga level seems just Right with this particular showing. Kudos to Selena for the daring yet age-appropriate and truly beautiful dress.

  23. lee says:

    Ah, I LOVE Jessie J! And I actually think she looks awesome. Especially that first ‘fifth element’ style get-up. Love it with the doc martens.

  24. Hautie says:

    Did Selena forget to bring her ice skate’s with her? I swear that dress came out of Nancy Kerrigan’s closet.

    But it is nice to see those Jersey girls purchased their dresses… from the Mob Wife’s catalog of fancy clothes and sparkly shoes.

  25. Vera says:

    I liked Gaga’s dress, but the makeup…yikes. That makeup was meant for a crazier ensemble.
