Lady Gaga Lays an Egg at the Grammys

Lady Gaga loves making an entrance, but her red carpet arrival at the Grammys was distinguished by what wasn't seen — namely, Gaga herself. Instead, the mercurial singer was carried inside a semi-translucent egg down the carpet by a coterie of blank-eyed attendants. Inside, she appeared to be breathing using an oxygen mask.

When Gaga took the stage to sing her new single, "Born This Way," she emerged from the egg (you could say hatched) — thankfully not shrouded in afterbirth — wearing a yellow rubber dress, matching wide-brimmed hat, and what appeared to be pointed shoulder implants.

To be sure, the birth metaphor wasn't subtle, but it was a spectacle worthy of both the Grammys and Gaga's publicity stunt-heavy career.
