The answer? She gave her fans the many faces of Gaga. And…also the backside of Gaga.
Gaga's much-anticipated comeback — her first televised performance of "Applause" — started with her looking like the Flying Nun, surprisingly covered up by VMA standards (and by Gaga standards). A round of canned boos — a nod to her many critics — accompanied her entrance, but the real audience was soon gasping when, after a series of costume changes that paid tribute to her past awards-show looks, she ended her performance in the barely-there Venus seashell outfit from her "Applause" video, wearing little more than a teensy, tiny thong. Gaga was definitely back — pun intended.
