Gaga slammed for copying Annie Lennox’s 1984 gender bender gig
London: Lady Gaga, who performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in drag recently, has been accused of imitating Annie Lennox’s 1984 performance at the same event.
The 25-year-old pop singer was slammed for copying Lennox’s gender bender performance from 1984 after she sang her track ‘You And I’ as her male alter-ego Joe Calderone.
She shocked the crowd, as she stepped out onto the dark, empty stage wearing a loose black suit and T-shirt with slicked-back dark hair with a lit cigarette.
However, many viewers, including Kelly Osbourne, felt the act was already familiar, as Lennox’s performance of ‘Sweet Dreams’ at the Grammy Awards saw her doing the same.
“I love lady gaga but I wish she would start giving credit where credit is due!” the Daily Mail quoted Osbourne as saying as she linked to a YouTube clip of the Euritymic’s performance, which saw Lennox perform in drag.
