After opening the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards over the weekend with a live rendition of her lead single "Applause", Lady GaGa is getting ready for another show-stopping performance at the forthcoming iTunes Festival this September in London. The 27-year-old artist is again given the kick-off performance assignment, headlining the month-long free concert series that begins on Sunday, September 1.
GaGa, who arrived in London Tuesday evening, August 27 went right to rehearsals and posted a practice video online on Wednesday where she was seen and heard performing her new song "Swine" with a band. But unlike her VMAs single-song performance, she is slated to dish out more songs at the iTunes music fest, delivering new material that appears in her forthcoming album "ARTPOP".
Billing her gig as "#SwineFest," GaGa went on Twitter to instruct her Little Monsters as to what to wear to the show. "I will be providing a list of acceptable attire for #SwineFest throughout the week. Item 1: Seashells. Item 2: Seahorses 3: Starfish. I would also suggestion 4. Paint colored dreadlocks for securing 'under the sea' Boticelli-Punk accessories. More fashion updates to come! X," the Mother Monster tweeted.
Then, as she wrote, she soon followed it up with some final outfit directions in capital letters no less, "5: BEDAZZLED PIG NOSE 6: BOWIE MAGICIAN GARB 7: TRASHBAG or ARTCLOTHES (THERE IS A PAINT ZONE). #ARTCLOTHES are clothes you don't mind getting covered in live art!"
