But if that weren't enough, Gaga took it up a level when she came out wearing yet ANOTHER mask with studded tusks:
Yes, chile. If anyone was going to make face masks avant-garde, it would be Ms. Gaga.
But — and if 2020 has taught us anything — there were more (face mask) surprises up her sleeve.
Gaga gave a stunning medley performance wearing a mask that changed colors as she sung live.
TBH, I'm out of breath just thinking about it.
Ariana Grande also wore a mask during their "Rain on Me" performance, because safety first people. COVID-19 is still a thing!
Moments later, Gaga was back to accept her award for Artist of the Year. This time, in a metallic face mask.
She returned to accept the Tricon Award (an award for someone who is a triple threat in multiple fields) wearing the same mask but with a different outfit. She said, "I might sound like a broken record but wear a mask."
At this point, I'm just waiting to see what mask Gaga pulls out next!
UPDATE: Yup. Gaga wore ANOTHER mask at the 2020 VMAs.
Dr. Fauci would be proud.
