Lady Gaga Thinks People Overreacted To Katy Perry Geisha Performance
"We were trying, actually, to steer the performance away from Marilyn, that was my attempt! Pretty terrible attempt," she told Carson Daly Monday morning (Nov. 25) on Los Angeles' AMP Radio (a Radio.com station).
"It's really more just about any kind of scandal. I mean, there's been lots of scandals in the White House, but you know, there's scandals everywhere else — in pop culture and celebrity life — so I was doing sort of a comment about that."
Katy Perry's geisha-inspired AMAs performance also made headlines for cries of racist undertones, but Gaga didn't see things that way sitting in the audience.
"Maybe it's because 'Unconditionally' means you're supposed to love no matter what and geishas are paid?" she questioned. "I think people are generally too sensitive and they should just leave her be, but you know, I'm not really the person to ask." She also discussed her tour plans.
