Celebrated and slated in equal measure around the world for her unique style, outrageous dress sense and just being constantly weird, Lady Gaga is truly one of a kind. Here are her 14 weirdest moments EVER.
In what has become one of the most well-known images of the star, Gaga rocked up at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in a dress made entirely of raw beef. It was named by Time Magazine as the fashion statement of the year, while Gaga explained that the dress was "a statement about one's need to fight for what one believes in". It's now on display in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (Photo:PA)
Mother Monster decided to mark the passing of her close friend Terry Richardson's mother by shaving the back of her head - before getting it tattooed live on stage during her 'Fame' perfume launch in New York. Ow, but wow - sort of? (Picture: Littlemonsters.com)
The 'Marry The Night' singer designed her signature perfume in 2012, aiming to release fragrance notes of - rather unusually - "blood and semen". The promise of this scent did not put off buyers, as 'Fame' was a bestseller in several UK chemists. We're not going to be buying a bottle any time soon though.

Gaga nosedived merrily into a delighted crowd after joining the band Semi Precious Weapons on stage in Chicago. She looks every inch the rockstar in this picture wearing fishnets, tattoos and a scowl to match. (Photo:
What a muppet! Continuing her inventive mashup of the fashion world, The 'Telephone' singer appeared on a German television show dressed in a bright green dress made of Kermit heads. Whatever you do, don't tell Miss Piggy... (Photo:RF)
Woof woof, Gaga's latest mad idea is to teach her beloved pet dog to become an artist by "attaching pens" to his legs and seeing what drawings he comes up with. Who knows, maybe Fozzi will become the Picasso of the dog world? (Picture: Splash)
The star flaunts her alter ego Jo Calderone at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, sporting a simple black suit - a much more demure look than she normally goes for, except of course that she's dressed as a man. There have been many rumours suggesting Gaga is actually a hermaphrodite, but the 'Judas' star has consistently blasted them as "ridiculous". (Photo: Getty)
Cops in Chicago stopped Mother Monster to inform her that wearing her tiny hot pants in public constituted "indecent exposure", to which she replied "It's fashion! I'm an artist!" Good one. (Photo:PA)
Not content with wearing a Kermit or a slab of steak on her head, Gaga is rumoured to have instructed her designers to create a hat filled with live cockroaches. A study by students in New York found the bugs responded to her music more than songs by any other artist, causing Gaga to name them her "real life monsters".
What the cluck is that! Oh, its just Gaga being carried by a host of naked dancers in a giant glowing egg (in which she spent three hours "getting into character") before 'hatching' live on stage and playing on a dramatic organ with disembodied heads balanced on top. Standard. (Photo:PA)
During a Christmas show at London's O2 Arena, the 'Just Dance' star was thrown a santa doll by a fan - but instead of thanking her, Gaga bit into its neck and shouted "I hate the holidays. I'm alone and miserable you f**king stuffed little toy!" What a scrooge. (Photo:Getty)
Gaga famously made a case for celibacy, telling her fans "It's not really cool any more to have sex all the time. It's cooler to be strong and independent." She also was worried that being sexually active would affect her song writing, telling Vanity Fair Magazine: "I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina". Right. (Photo:Rex).
In just one of her many controversial videos, the star performs a dance routine in a wheelchair, crutches and a neck brace after being thrown off a balcony by her beau, sparking a discussion about 'the politics of disabilities'. Other videos see her poisoning a diner full of customers (Telephone) and being caught in a love triangle with Jesus and Judas Iscariot (Judas).
The star was accused of spreading "pro-homosexual propaganda" in Russia by Conservatives in the country after performing in St Petersburg, where such propaganda is criminalised. One politician demanded an investigation into Gaga, whose translator explained to the crowd she "was not there to offend anyone's religion or faith" but was there "to unite us".
