Lady Gaga Day in Taiwan
People were celebrating this past weekend for a variety of reasons-Canada Day, Fourth of July and Lady Gaga Day? Yes, that’s right Taiwan was so excited for Gaga’s tour that they announced July 3rd as Lady Gaga Day and threw a more than ecstatic celebration. The pop star was celebrated in Taichung by government officials and of her course her fans. A group of Taiwanese school children performed a dance with chants of “Gaga! Gaga!” for the star. The mayor of Taichung, Jason Hu, presented Gaga with a key to the city, along with a painting of her ‘Born This Way’ album cover.
Gaga attended the festivities in a pair of red pants with a matching red animal-print blazer. She topped off this look with half black, half white hair which she’s been seen with as of late. She expressed her graititude for the gifts and celebration and stated, “I will always remember this day.” She performed a free nine-song concert in the city, where approximately 4,000 people attended, many who were dressed in Gaga-inspired outfits. She’ll continue her tour of Asia in Singapore today. As named by Rolling Stone magazine, the "Queen of Pop" is having quite a favorable effect on the Eastern hemisphere and mentioned she will be returning to the island next year for a concert with tickets on general sale.
