Lady Gaga's speech inspires us all to 'wear the pants'

TWENTY ONE PILOTS-2018-altpress

One person wrote on social media, "her message is powerful, but did she really have to wear that suit?"

"We are voices", the singer added and described the way in which women feel they fight with one another for the entertainment of others. "As a sexual assault survivor...who is still not fearless enough to say his name, as a woman who lives with chronic pain, as a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today I want to take the power back".

"I felt like me".

Though the event's priority was to celebrate some of Hollywood's most notable and accomplished women, fashion was on full display, as well.


Lady Gaga announced her engagement to Christian Carino. This was an oversized men's suit made for a woman. Today I wear the trousers. To resist the standards of Hollywood, whatever that means. And felt shame even still today standing in front of you. I avoided it myself. I feel shame for what happened to me. The pair were together for five years, having begun dating in 2011, after meeting on the set of her music video You and I. And then wondering what I wanted to say tonight become very clear to me.

Last night, Lady Gaga was honored at Elle's 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration at the Four Seasons Hotel in L.A. -and during her speech Mother Monster confirmed that she was engaged by thanking her "fiancé Christian".

Rumors that Gaga and Carino are engaged have been floating around since this most recent summer, when Gaga was spotted wearing a big ring during her press tour for A Star Is Born, according to the AP, but her mention of her "fiancé" confirmed the rumors.
