Lady Gaga's Latest Loopy Move! She Scrawls On Her $5,000 Birkin Bag With A Sharpie!

Ladies, I hope you’re sitting down! Not only does Lady Gaga get to skip the waiting list for a Birkin– but what does she do when she gets her hands on one? She doodles on it with a marker!

Lady Gaga’s crazy get-ups and costumes rarely phase me anymore, but her latest move has left me shocked — I would like to think even little Suri Cruise would have more respect for a classic Hermes Birkin bag! Don’t get me wrong, I always thought it was kind of weird that Lady Gaga, who dresses so eccentric, would carry a classic white Hermes Birkin bag (it doesn’t really match her get-ups) — but I never would have thought she would take a sharpie marker to the super expensive luxury item! When she arrived in Japan today, Apr. 13, she showed off the brand new graffiti on her bag, which said “I love little monster, Tokyo love,” in Japanese. Considering that the pricey purses start at around $5,000 and women wait for months to get their hands on one, I don’t know why Lady Gaga would opt to mark it up. Maybe it’s all the traveling she’s doing on her tour — although when I’m flying, I usually keep myself entertained with some music, a book, and a nap. Lady Gaga, once again goes to show you, how she’s so not like us!

Somehow I don’t think Gaga paid for that bag herself, especially not if it cost the $10k that one of the other commenters claims it did. It’s very likely that as a huge celebrity of today, she gets sent things to wear or gets them at a very discounted rate, purely because she’s such a big name at the moment.

I can’t say I’m very impressed with KM’s derisive comment about her being *so* not like us. Whilst her taste may not be your taste, you cannot say the girl never looks good. Articles like this are what I point to when people ask me why I hate celebrity culture. Thumbs down from StumbleUpon methinks.

That promotional operation is worth much more than the bag…
I don’t think she did that present to Hermes. They paid her to wear that nurse bag she would probably never have chosen herself.

So lemme get this straight…you’re freaking out over what someone does with their own personal property? Aren’t there more important things to focus that anger on? Also, she can afford it, as unfair as it may be yeah she probs skipped the waitline, but what she did was personalize her purse, making it unique and something that she feelsadds to her style, instead of looking like every other white Birkin. I also never really got the whole Birkin obsession…it’s a boxy rather boring purse (I do understand the Hermes obsession, the leather quality is superb and they’re incredibly well made…but why fawn over something that looks like that?).

The girl is out of her mind in love with herself and will do anything to be the center of attention. Look people…. look at me….. it’s all about MEEEEEEE. Gaga is more like gaughhhhs….. gaughhhha. Self absorbed lost soul.

The bag is a size 40cm and it actually cost $10,450 not including tax. There is no waiting period, just pure luck and a very good relation with the sale person to get that phone call. KM, please check the facts before posting a blog.

It doesn’t actually say anything in Japanese – it legitly says “Ai rabu smohru monstah Tokyo(in kanji) rabu”. It’s just “I love small monster Tokyo love” rendered in katakana, which is the language used for loan words, among other things. It hasn’t been translated at all – it’s the equivalent of sounding out a Japanese word in English, basically. If she was going to graffiti an expensive bag in a foreign language, couldn’t she at least do it properly???

It’s still Japanese, regardless of whether it was written in hiragana or katakana and she did do it properly. Like you said, katakana is used for more than loan words. It’s sometimes used for emphasis, to be trendy, blah blah.

And before you try to ask how the hell I would know, yes, I’ve lived in Japan and I’ve studied it for years… I even majored in it.

Isn’t that essentially the same idea as the writing on the Sprouse x LV bags?

She made it hers and managed to have someone have to sort out what the bag says. It just paid for itself.

Have you not thought that, it might be worth a lot more the 5000, Once the Gorgeous Gaga has actually drawn on it? Another fact is that: Everyone craves for this plan luxury item, Lady Gaga likes to do it with a difference-She has the bag everyone craves and turns it into an indivisual item with a bit of meaning to it!
