One would think that if the Queen of England were to look out her chamber window and see this at the front gates of the palace...
Her immediate reaction would be something like this...
However, that was not the case at all.
The Queen, evidently a big fan of Lady Gaga, actually invited her to perform at the annual Royal Variety Performance in Blackpool...
Gaga and Miley Cyrus were among the performers who put on a show for Queen Elizabeth II and her husband at Britain's Royal Variety Performance at an opera house in Blackpool, England, on Monday.
The ever-reserved monarch reportedly giggled when Gaga bowed and shook her hand, which is exactly the reaction most would have upon shaking hands with Lady Gaga!
The long red dress and 20-foot long cloak Gaga donned for her audience with Her Majesty looked almost Elizabethan, save for the fact that it was made from synthetic PVC, a material frequently used as the insulation on electrical wires. During Lady Gaga's performance of "Speechless," she sat atop a swing suspended 30 feet in the air as she played a piano held up on giant stilts.
Bette Midler was also in attendance with the other performers.
There was a time, back in the day, when Bette would have been the outlandish dame at a society function.
I guess the disco stick has been passed on to the next generation.
