Lady Gaga's latest red carpet look is an orthodontist's nightmare.
At the YouTube Music Awards last night (October 3) in New York City, the ARTPOP singer appeared with a frightening accessory: a mouthpiece featuring what looks like actual human teeth, jutting out at garish angles.
To make the look even scarier, the Lady wore nearly-opaque black sunglasses and piled her curly, dark brown hair messily into a wide-brimmed black top hat.
Thankfully, the rest of her outré outfit was marginally less unnerving: a black leather shirt-dress and mile-high black platform shoes.
Surprisingly, this eerie ensemble is not an homage to her song "Teeth" — it's a reference to the cover art for her new single, "Dope," which features the singer wearing the same mouthpiece and a similar hat — although in that photo, she's rocking a huge blazer, skimpy underwear, and bruised legs.
Incidentally, the 27-year-old pop star released "Dope" today, just days ahead of the full release of ARTPOP, her third studio album.
We respect your avant-garde appearance, Gaga, but maybe you can put your "Poker Face" back on and hide those scary teeth!
