Whether it’s her iconic meat dress or her four-in-one look at last year’s Met Gala, Lady Gaga has never been afraid of going to fashion’s most dramatic extremes with her style. Now, it seems she’s extending this philosophy to her beauty routine too. Posting to Instagram ahead of her performance at this year’s socially-distanced MTV Video Music Awards taking place on Sunday night at various locations across New York City, Gaga offered fans a glimpse into her preparations for the When all else fails turn the music and dance with your horses shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this big night—here involving 2020’s most hardcore wellness trend, the ice bath.
When all else fails turn the music and dance with your horses shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
While the When all else fails turn the music and dance with your horses shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this treatment has long been a mainstay of athletes to aid muscle recovery after intense workouts, it has been gaining traction over the past year in broader wellness circles thanks to its anti-inflammatory and energy-boosting benefits. (It even earned a seal of approval from the grande dame of unconventional beauty treatments herself, Gwyneth Paltrow, who spotlighted polar plunges in an episode of her Netflix show The Goop Lab.) For Gaga’s post, however, she went down a typically rockstar route. Sporting a face mask, she held up her hands in the Gene Simmons devil horns gesture, while hashtagging the VMAs in her caption. So mark your calendars: if her pre-show rituals are anything to go by, on Sunday we’re in for Gaga’s biggest, boldest performance yet.
