If you’ve seen shots of Lady Gaga making the rounds at New York Fashion Week, you might have noticed that her current hair/eyebrow/makeup game is—how shall we say this—strikingly familiar. Die Antwoord’s Yolandi Visser, certainly noticed because, um, Gaga looks exactly like her.
Just check out Visser’s totally legitimate response on Instagram:
Her bandmate, Ninja, was somewhat less subtle/shady with his response:
Honestly, as much as we dig Gaga and her many looks, it’s hard to see how she would have just naturally come across this particular mix of blonde Vulcan hair, sculpted, bleached brows, and very particular contouring without looking in the mirror and saying to herself, “Oh, hey, I look totally like Yolandi in just about every respect.” We mean, Gaga has been known for incorporating bits and pieces of Grace Jones, Madonna, and many, many, many others into her arsenal—but those are usually tributes to and samples of longstanding icons, not acts less popular than herself.
So what could have inspired this?
