If good artists borrow and great artists steal, Lady Gaga must be a truly great artist. In a new video for MAC‘s Viva Glam campaign, the Mother Monster admits that some of her best looks come right off the faces of her fans.
Gaga sat down with her friend and collaborator Nicola Formichetti to talk about the importance of AIDS awareness among women, something this particular ad campaign seeks to increase. And while the Lady says she appreciates the light MAC is shedding on the issue, she appreciates the company’s makeup, too. (We don’t know whether Formichetti appreciates either, as he spends most of the video just sort of looking at his nails and trying on lipstick.)
Meanwhile, Gaga is busy being inspired by her fans. She says:
“I always love when I see the fans with makeup on at the show. And they’re so good at it, too! I see looks, and I think, ‘I’m going to steal that from you! I’m going to do that!’”
Will she steal one of your looks next? Watch:
