Lady Gaga is reflecting on her style journey.
The 33-year-old singer opened up about her career while discussing the launch of her new Haus Laboratories makeup line in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily.
“Over the course of my career, I’ve been called weird all the time. Even with my last album, Joanne, I wore a pink hat with every outfit. I used to joke with my stylist – Brandon Maxwell was styling me at the time – and he was like, ‘Do you have to wear it with everything? It just doesn’t go.’ And I was like, ‘Brandon, the hat doesn’t go with anything.’ I said, ‘That’s the point.’ I said, ‘This hat goes with nothing.’ I said, ‘This is Joanne.’”
She also talked about pushing back against expectations.
“I go, ‘Oh, you don’t like that? Let me do it again.’ Then I’m going to wear two. Then I’m going to go harder. Then I’m going to push it further. For me, this is about testing the limits, and I want to push the limits…I joke about how when I first started, if you passed Forever 21 you would never see a leather jacket in the window, and then 10 years later, there’s leather and studs all over the place when I walk by.”
While Haus Laboratories isn’t officially launching until this September, Lady Gaga is giving fans an opportunity to pre-order all the products through Amazon or Haus Labs on Amazon Prime Day, which runs from 12 a.m. [PT] on Monday, July 15th, through 11:59 p.m. [PT] on Tuesday, July 16th (while supplies last).
Haus Laboratories is officially kicking off with three products in six shades of each: Glam Attack; multi-use liquid eye shadows, RIP Lip Liners, and Le Riot Lip Glosses. Each product is meant to be multi-use. Lady said that she uses the lip liners all over as lipsticks, and the Glam Attack shadows can be used all over your face.
