She is known for her outrageous and eccentric sense of style.

Gaga’s hair was platinum and long, and she wore sweeping eye shadow, bright red lipstick and a beauty spot.

The singer was heading out to perform a concert in Hollywood on the late night Jimmy Kimmel Show.

She stopped and waved to the faithful fans who had been waiting patiently outside the Château Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood.

Earlier, the singer had sent out bags of McDonalds takeouts to the group, who she nicknames ‘Little Monsters.’
