Lady Gaga has a reputation to keep up. She may be a talented, boundary-pushing musician, but it's really her style that defines her in the public eye. She understands better than anybody that if people start seeing her walking around in dresses not made out of meat, or traveling by taxi instead of by giant translucent egg, then her mystique of grotesque elegance will sublimate away, and she'll look less like the Queen of All Monsters than a privileged Italian princess from the Upper West Side.
