Popstar Lady Gaga arrived in Japan's Narita Airport wearing an I-don't-know-what and sporting Japanese scribbled on her arm. And while her music videos might have game references (here and here), her arm does not.
Neither does that Hermes Birkin bag that has been defaced. (Named after popstar Jane Birkin, Birkin bags typically cost from $US6,000 and up. Birkin is also known for recording a really great song while having "simulated" sex with her then boyfriend Serge Gainsbourg.)
The temporary tattoo on Gaga's arm says "I love little monster" and the writing on the Birkin bag reads "I love small monster Tokyo love". These are not references to Pocket Monsters, but rather, her own fans, which she affectionately calls "little monsters". (It's also unlikely she is referring to this classic.)
It is not believed that Gaga wrote these messages herself.
Gaga is coming off releasing her newest album The Fame Monster last year and is currently on the Asia leg of her Monster Ball Tour, playing two shows: one in Kobe and the other in Yokohama. She might have Tokyo Love, but it looks like all she'll be doing there is shopping and sightseeing.
