Shubham Rawat dresses up as Jo Calderone, Saif Tinwala does a jester shoot and Charis turns redhead — all to meet Lady Gaga! HT City’s nationwide hunt for the five lucky fans who’ll get to meet and greet the international pop queen when she’s in Delhi later this week, has hundreds of readers sending in their whacky Gaga-inspired pictures and pieces. The contest, organised by Hindustan Times and entertainment portal Desihits.com, closes at 10am today.
“You are even greater than Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley,” writes Raghav Rajesh Tibrewal, 14, from Mumbai. “Her groovy dance moves, out-of-the-world lyrics, her trendsetting personality, her authenticity and her tracks that leave us ‘Speechless’ and grasping for more — I embody it all and respect her for who she is and who she wants us all to be — REAL!!,” writes Ritika Singh, 16, from Gurgaon.
Fans say they can’t miss this golden chance because Gaga’s a phenomenon like no other. “She has taken many bold steps for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) rights, which makes us feel she is a true idol,” feels Sanjana Chaudhary, who wants to be one of those to win this once-a-lifetime opportunity.While many diehard fans are choosing to write in on how they embody the spirit of Gaga, others have been flooding our inbox with cool pics of themselves dressed in true-blue Gaga style. Hair that’s blue, red, yellow and white, skull-painted faces inspired by the Born This Way video, cigarettes, 10-inch heels, makeup that bleeds and crazy outfits — Gaga fever in India has never been this high. "Meeting Gaga is on the top of my ‘10 things to do before I die’ list. And if I get to meet her this time, I promise the other nine things won’t matter!" writes Mini Sood, 20, from Delhi.
