Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE!!

Everyone knows that a truly legendary pop star makes a career off integrating obscure pop references with his or her lyrics and image. Just ask Kanye. For his music video for "Stronger" he chose to incorporate various allusions to the classic anime staple "Akira", making that five-minute piece likely the closest thing we'll ever come to seeing a live-action version...with Kanye playing Tetsuo...(sigh) Anyway, I've run off course. Ah yes! That is why I am absolutely elated to see Gaga giving her own take on the 1980s cult-classic Beetlejuice at one of her concerts, however unintentionally. Tell me that make up (especially the eyes) isn't the spitting image of the ghost with the most:
Now take a minute to let that sink in.
As for the rest of her outfit, it appears to be from the underappreciated "I, Robot" line from Victoria's Secret. Or something. Go figure.
