There's An Important Reason Lady Gaga Didn't Walk The Oscars Red Carpet
She was busy, OK?
The Little Monsters were praying to the “Father, son, and House of Gucci” for a show-stopping Lady Gaga appearance at the Oscars red carpet, but it just didn’t happen. Though Gaga’s movie House of Gucci was up for Best Makeup and Hairstyling at the awards show, Gaga didn’t appear on the official red carpet. She had a good reason for skipping the big pre-event.
As was previously announced, Gaga co-hosted the annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards viewing party alongside actors Billy Porter and Eric McCormack, as well as Elton’s husband David Furnish. They filled in for Elton, who couldn’t host his annual party this year. He is in the middle of his Goodbye Yellow Brick Road tour and had a show in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Oscars night.
“It breaks my heart that I can’t be there because it’s an event that means so much to us,” Elton said on Good Morning America on March 21.
Lady Gaga wasn’t too far from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles where the Oscars were held. The party occurred simultaneously at West Hollywood Park in West Hollywood. Of course, Lady Gaga being Gaga meant that she still served a look on the party’s red carpet. Wearing a strapless yellow dress, she posed for photos with her co-host Furnish.
Inside the event, Gaga posed with another co-host, Billy Porter. He looked stunning in a black ensemble and silver jewelry.
Both Elton and Gaga tweeted about the event on Oscars night. Elton tweeted a photo of Gaga posing on the red carpet with Furnish and their two sons, and Gaga responded saying she loved her family.
“I love my family. So proud of these bright young men, as well as David and Elton’s incredible work with @EJAF fighting HIV/AIDS. We’re cheering everyone on tonight and see you @TheAcademy SOON!” she wrote.
As her tweet suggests, there’s no reason to worry the Little Monsters won’t get a glimpse of Gaga during the Oscars telecast. She is still expected to appear as a presenter. Here’s hoping she walks on stage serving us a second stunning look of the night.
