Lady Gaga must be as excited about the upcoming 75th anniversary 3D edition of The Wizard of Oz as we are: Mother Monster gave an Oz-inspired performance of “Applause” this morning on Good Morning America, quick-changing into Dorothy, Glinda and her ARTPOP persona, as winged monkeys, the Tin Man and Cowardly Lion danced around her.
“All of these outfits and wigs that I’ve been changing in over the years. This is my way of surviving,” she told GMA‘s Robin Roberts in a sit-down interview. “This is my way of getting to Oz to have all my dreams come true. Whatever we had to do to get past the evil monkeys and the Wicked Witch, Dorothy was able to transform in order to survive. By transforming into Glinda and then transforming at the end into the wizard who was just Dorothy herself—me.”
Hmm, is Gaga bucking for a role in the long-awaited movie version of Wicked? The could do a lot worse.
