“It” girl Lady Gaga is famous for two things: her chart topping dance songs and her wacky fashion sense.
Fashionistas have labeled the pop star a style icon and innovator in the fashion world, but Irish singer Roisin Murphy claims the only thing original about Gaga is that she doesn’t wear pants.
Murphy called Gaga a fraud, and says she stole her look.
The former British band Moloko frontwoman and successful solo artist recently told the Daily Mail: "She's copied my style. I met her about a year ago before she got really big and I had no clue that this was all going to happen. She wasn't wearing shoulder pads at the time, and I was."
The Arklow, County Wicklow born singer is furious that the American songstress claims her oversized hats, thigh-high boots and hooded cloaks are all part of her original style.
"Lady Gaga is just a poor imitation of me," Murphy said. "She has copied my style, she took my shoulder pads and all that. Mind you she doesn't wear the bottom half!"
