Lady Gaga Goes Hannibal Lecter in a Bizarre Cage-Style Headpiece

Lady Gaga has been known to wear some unusual headwear — remember her lobster hat? beef beret? — but over the weekend her look was rather chilling.

The 26-year-old seemed to be channeling iconic psycho Hannibal Lecter when she stepped out in Manhattan wearing cage-style headgear. Dressed in black, including dangerously high platforms, Gaga exited her New York City hotel on Saturday wearing the attention-grabbing contraption. The bizarre accessory, which must have been extremely uncomfortable, featured strips of metal, which mostly obscured her face, and gold chains. All eyes were on the fashionista as she walked to her waiting car in the bizarre apparatus — and she knew it. She played up the moment, keeping a serious expression on her face and her eyes big and wide.

One marked difference between Gaga's look and Lecter's however? Gaga's headpiece featured a cherub on the front right between her eyes. So angelic!

So where was the "Born This Way" singer headed looking like Lecter? No, not the set of the upcoming NBC drama "Hannibal." That would almost make sense. Instead she was off to Newark, New Jersey, where she took the stage during the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary concert.

Leading up to the show, which was telecast live via pay-per-view on Saturday night, Gaga was excited to be sharing the stage with the music legends. "Can't wait to sing with the Rolling Stones on Saturday Night. In 2007 i was stripping to them," the one-time go-go dancer posted on Twitter. As for how she was convinced to do the show, Gaga tweeted, "He had me at 'hello, it's Mick.'"

After singing "Gimme Shelter" with Jagger and company, Gaga was on cloud nine. "I had a life dream to be transported in a time machine to 1973 NJ, beer + badboys, she tweeted. "Someone heal me it happened + then I sang with the Stones."

No word on how Lady Gaga spent the rest of her night after the show, but we'd venture to guess it ended with a dinner of fava beans and a nice Chianti.
