Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say.
But when the end result is a disaster, can the muse really appreciate the gesture?
Lady Gaga kept trying to walk in Cher’s shoes – literally and figuratively – disregarding the looks of those around her. The heavy make-up, sad wig, shiny bathrobe/dress just made it more clear that no one can pull off Cher, well, like Cher.
No wonder the Goddess of Pop became a trendsetter not a follower – she had a style, a direction, always adapting, never stealing from someone else.
While Gaga keeps showing up as an overwhelming Rio carnival puppet.
