Um, Does Lady Gaga Have an Emotional Support Ostrich or Is This an Accessory?

It’s 2019 and emotional support animals are everywhere (planes, the workplace, restaurants). So when Lady Gaga stepped out last night with a bouquet of black and gold feathers, we immediately wondered: Is that an emotional support ostrich?

It appears her bundle of plumes was merely decorative—although, if weighted blankets are an anxiety-soothing tool, bundles of feathers can be too.

Aside from her ostrich-inspired UFO (unidentified feathered object), Gaga wore a Ralph Lauren tuxedo gown festooned with more than 23,000 jet crystals and carried her newly procured 2019 National Board of Review award like a clutch.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Lady Gaga’s signature Mother Monster style coming back after a brief “Goddess Gaga” hiatus, and we love it.
