Youtube Spotlight: Lady Gaga takes to the air in ‘flying dress’ (Video)

Staff Writer

On the eve of her fourth studio album’s release, pop diva Lady Gaga lived up to her reputation for doing things on a grand scale on Sunday as she donned what she calls the world’s first ‘flying dress’
 
Lady Gaga, known as much for her off-the-wall performances and outrageous costumes as for her music, was strapped into a contraption mounted on a flat disk and fronted by a molded body suit. It hoisted her aloft before a horde of media and industry types.
 
The dress, which she dubbed Volantis, may only have risen a few feet off the ground and propelled her perhaps 20 feet before alighting. But no matter, Lady Gaga was, well, gaga, letting out a joyous screech after her “flight” in a warehouse at the decidedly unglamorous Brooklyn Navy Yard.
 
Calling Volantis “an amazing ambassador for creativity, Gaga, born Stefani Germanotta, said that while her latest sartorial statement “is a vehicle, she essentially is a metaphor for me.”
 
She explained that Gaga was serving as a voice for “the youth of the world,” especially those “who don’t think they’ll ever penetrate the corporate world.”
 
The event was one of many over several days that Lady Gaga has staged in conjunction with the US launch of ARTPOP, which was scheduled to be released on Monday after a delay owing to a hip injury.
