Lady Gaga: 'If I wear black pants and a black T-shirt everyday, people might focus on what I write'
Lady Gaga believes wearing an all-black ensemble will make people "focus" on her songs lyrics.
The 30-year-old singer songwriter - who is known for her eccentric style and outlandish costumes for her performances - has admitted she has decided to drop the gimmicks with her recent album 'Joanne' and thinks if she was to don "black pants and a black T-shirt" fans will enjoy her music more.
Speaking to PEOPLE about her wardrobe choices whilst performing, the blonde beauty - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - said: "If I wear black pants and a black T-shirt everyday, people might focus on what I write."
And Gaga has admitted although others were bewildered by her outfits, the garments "made sense" to her.
She explained: "All the outfits, fashion and art pieces over the years made sense to me [but] they didn't make sense to other people."
And the 'Bad Romance' hitmaker - who has recently split from her actor fiancé Taylor Kinney - has revealed her latest LP has calmed down and she has opted for a more natural ensemble, which has seen her demand flat footwear instead of high heeled platform shoes.
She said: "This time, my style just stayed naturally at how I've been in the studio.
"I started vehemently saying, 'Get these clothes out! I'm not wearing this! I'm not wearing heels!' And some of that, too, is because I've been in the studio with boys. You can't make music with a bunch of boys who are staring at a lobster on your head. They are going to get distracted."
Meanwhile, the powerhouse thinks being a woman "ain't easy", and thinks all women share many of the same life struggles.
Speaking previously, she said: "Many women, no matter their race, colour, religion, go through the same issues with men, bodies, minds. A lot of women shut down, as they don't feel heard. It ain't easy. I know it is pulling me apart."
