VIDEO: Gaga visits Metro’s office

Gaga and Dutch "Little Monster" Jeroen Engelen

It was far from an ordinary day in the office. Lady Gaga swept into Metro International newspaper group’s head office in London wearing a strapless bra with diamante nipple-tassles, tall, pink beehive, and even taller platform heels. Between a packed promotional schedule of live shows and TV appearances to promote her second album, “Born This Way,” the world’s biggest pop star spent several hours at a desk to edit the world’s biggest newspaper.

"I’m sorry if my business attire is a little different," she quipped as she worked her way through the newsroom. “My mother used to say to me if you work in an office you should always wear whatever you want. She worked in an office and only had two suits.”

Gaga was in confident power editor mode as she led Metro World News’ daily editorial meeting. “I’m used to this, I have a column in V Magazine”, she commented as she discussed a range of subjects including the relief effort in Japan, bullying and equal rights, then answered a range of questions set for her by a panel of ‘little monsters’ elected in each of Metro’s countries. At her side was her editorial assistant, Jeroen Engelen, Metro Holland reader and Gaga superfan who won the global competition to help her out for the day.

Wowed by the pages that she was signing off, Gaga commented on how beautiful the red graphics are, “who designed this, she might get stolen from Metro!,” she laughed.She was impressed by Metro’s global readership of 25 million. “I hope that at least one tenth of your readers buy our album,” she joked.

Sitting at her desk, she wrote her editor’s letter as staff listened. “I really appreciate the opportunity…it’s a wonderful chance for me to show the world that ‘little monsters’ are not just a fan base but exist outside the music world altogether. I will show the world you can do so much today with one voice.”
