After copping many pieces of Michael Jackson’s clothing during an auction last year, Mother Monster has revealed she puts them on when she wants to record for inspiration.
The ‘Applause‘ songstress won several items from the late King of Pop’s wardrobe at auction last year and tried to channel the legendary music star by wearing his sweater as she put the finishing touches on her new record, ‘ARTPOP’.
She said: ‘I recently bought a bunch of Michael Jackson’s clothes – his actual clothes from his tours. The idea was to keep them for him. I actually don’t really want to wear them; they’re Michael’s clothes.
‘[But] there’s a couple of pieces I have to the side and I have his sweaters that I put on – I wear that when we’re mixing and finish up a record. I feel something from the clothing.’ As well as keeping items for herself, the 27-year-old pop star says she has gifted some of the clothing to his relatives to remember him by.
In an interview with US radio show ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest‘, she said: ‘I gave one of the sweaters to his godson and he really loved that. I just feel through clothes you can feel things.’ Gaga snapped up 55 personal items from Michael’s wardrobe – including one of his famous Swarovski-encrusted white gloves – at a Beverly Hills auction house last December.
She said at the time: ‘The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived and expertly cared for in the spirit and love of Michael Jackson, his bravery and his fans worldwide.’
