Maybe it was the fab food or the funky shops, but Lady Gaga chose to hang out in the Hub an extra day after her sold-out show at the Garden instead of making her way to the Midwest. And really who could blame her?
The uber pop tart, who rocked the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio, last night, stayed behind in Boston to shop on Newbury Street for vintage duds and slurp oysters at closing time at Jasper White’s Summer Shack.
Gaga, traveling with her pack of bodyguards, slipped out of the Mandarin Oriental late yesterday and spent a Monster-ous amount of cash on vintage clothes and boots at Rick Walker’s, which she proclaimed “the coolest store ever.”
“She said she and her boyfriend are all about cowboy boots and American-type clothes,” Rachel Walsh Walker told the Track.
Who knew? We thought she was more into the ovum and raw meat. But Rachel reported Gaga’s alter ego, Stefani Germanotta, picked up some vintage French gray leather pants, a black leather jacket, a shagadelic pair of ’70s London pink boots and two vintage rock T-shirts — Rod Stewart and AC/DC.
“She was really great,” said Rick Walker’s wife. “What a peanut.”
Later in the evening, Gaga’s gang ordered up two dozen oysters, crabs, oyster shooters, tons of veggies, and, for the Lady: a 3-pound lobster!
The staff was not only in awe of Gag’s appetite, but one reported that she was wearing a black leotard that showed every bit of her, ah, pop princess posterior. Wait a minute, didn’t she buy a pair of pants just hours before?
