Lady Gaga sends Paris new rap song, Cake
PARIS (AFP) - Lady Gaga has sent a musical message to the Paris fashion crowd on Wednesday night, giving a preview of her first rap song at the Mugler show by Nicola Formichetti, who is also her personal stylist.
Entitled Cake, the track - on which the diva's voice is barely recognisable - has been doing the rounds on the Internet for the past 10 days, but the star had yet to acknowledge it as her own.
The song's highly offensive lyrics led Slate.com to write last week that it hoped Gaga - if confirmed as the author - was acting tongue-in-cheek, in order "to highlight the awfulness of certain rap lyrics."
Gaga was in Paris last week for her first concert in the country but was not at the late-night Mugler show - she was performing in Zurich at the time.
