If you watched this year’s Oscars, you’ve probably seen Lady Gaga’s vocally perfect tribute to the Sound of Music. And if you’re like everyone else, you were probably blown away by the performance and thought, holy shit, Lady Gaga can actually sing.
Just like her many infamous performances in the past, Lady Gaga’s Oscars performance was shocker—but it was a shocker for a different reason. For one, Gaga was fully dressed, she seemed really happy, and she wasn’t trying to preach about being “born this way.” Oh, and there weren’t any blood, bathtubs or grinding during the performance.
As it turns out, that number is part of a plan–a long term plan that sees Lady Gaga reinvent herself. (Gaga also took the stage at this year’s Grammys, performing a nice duet with Tony Bennett.)
