Remember when Lady Gaga turned up carrying a white Hermes Birkin bag that had Japanese characters scrawled all over it? Well, apparently that was the handiwork of  performance artist Terence Koh. Turns out Terence’s vocal contributions to Gaga’s songs are similarly intrusive – i.e. doubtless tres arty and cool, but we wouldn’t mind doing without. We know this, because we’ve just been watching ‘Gagakoh!’ the genius film put together by our friends over at MAC, who sponsored Lady G’s Viva Glam gigs in Tokyo last month (you may recall some of the photos from the tour, not least because it seems Gagaloo has basically given up wearing clothes at all any more for appearing on stage).

And so we present, a glittery piano, an on-stage snowstorm, a giant bunny’s head that puts Gareth Pugh’s to shame, a corsage that makes Carrie Bradshaw’s effort look, frankly, half-assed, some surprisingly conventional ankle boots, quite a lot of Gaga’s ‘tocks, and Terence Koh on backing vocals (you have been warned).
Oh, and stick with it to the end, because you can’t even begin to imagine what Lady Gaga’s fans turn up wearing to her gigs in Tokyo…
