The sight of the singer wearing next to nothing isn't particularly unusual, given her penchant for controversial outfits. Last week she appeared on Good Morning America wearing a 'condom-inspired' outfit, having previously arrived at the Grammy Awards in an egg. But it was still slightly surprising to see Gaga casually strolling along New York's Lower East Side in the middle of the day wearing some skimpy black underwear teamed with fishnet tights, black platforms and a black leather jacket.

The eye-catching outfit brought traffic to a standstill as crowds gathered to catch a glimpse of the Born This Way singer, who was out filming a documentary for a HBO special documenting her Madison Square Garden performances this week. On Monday the clearly rather happy singer tweeted: 'What a dream come true! Filming my HBO special of the Monsterball today, and just finished editing Born This Way video! Announcement Soon! X' Lady Gaga evidently enjoyed the show, as she said after leaving the concert: 'Just pulled out of MSG, tears streaming down my face. 'Turned radio on + Born This Way was roaring. Believe, + catch your subway to destiny.' It wasn't the first time this week the singer had been moved to tears – Lady Gaga invited a ten-year-old fan to duet with her on stage, saying she 'couldn't stop crying' after hearing the girl's cover of Born This Way.

After Maria's rendition of the Madonna-sounding tune went viral (current YouTube view count: 9million+), a Toronto radio station invited her in for an interview and then got Gaga on the phone. 'Can’t stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future,' the Grammy-winning performance artist had tweeted of the Winnipeg native's skills. Talking to her on the phone, the 24-year-old told Maria she'd been having a 'bad day' until she witnessed her version of Born This Way and became 'overjoyed'. 'You have such a beautiful voice and you are so joyful to watch,' she told her. She then invited the overwhelmed fan to duet with her when she performs at a concert in Toronto next month. Last summer, Gaga pulled a similar stunt when she got in touch with 12-year-old Greyson Chance, another YouTube tribute-maker whose Paparazzi cover bagged him a spot on Ellen DeGeneres' chat show.
