Lady Gaga named best loved eccentric

Nov 27 2012, 5:02am CST | by

Lady Gaga has been named the world's best loved eccentric in new a poll beating Ozzy Osbourne, Russell Brand and Bjork to the title.

Lady Gaga has been hailed the world's best loved eccentric.
The 'Born This Way' hitmaker is known for her quirky outfits, which have included a meat dress and telephone hat, and often odd behaviour but her strangeness has landed her the title.
The 26-year-old singer beat a host of famous names to top the poll of 2,000 people, including third placed rocker Ozzy Osbourne, fourth placed Prince Philip and Russell Brand, who came fifth.
A spokesman for Nature Valley, who conducted the survey as part of their new 'Sweet & Nutty' bar launch, said: ''British people tend to have a soft spot for anyone out of the norm - anyone who doesn't conform to the ordinary. This is why celebrities such as Prince Philip, Lady Gaga and Russell Brand are close to our hearts.
''More often than not, eccentric attributes are harmless as they are often have the most brilliant personalities.''
Other stars to make the eccentric list include comedian-and-actor Stephen Fry (seven), cross-dressing comic Eddie Izzard (eight), Icelandic pop star Bjork, Hollywood megastar Johnny Depp (17) and quirky couple Helena Bonham Carter (12) and Tim Burton (15).

Most Eccentric Celebrities poll top 20:

1. Lady GaGa
2. Boris Johnson
3. Ozzy Osbourne
4. Prince Philip
5. Russell Brand
6. Janet Street Porter
7. Stephen Fry
8. Eddie Izzard
9. Vivienne Westwood
10. Bjork
11. Boy George
12. Helena Bonham Carter
13. Lembit Opik
14. Noel Fielding
15. Tim Burton
16. Chris Eubank
17. Johnny Depp
18. David Bowie
19. Jedward
20. Pete Burns

Lily Allen Needs a Reality Check With a Side of Sense

Jul 24 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party - Arrivals
It's time to feel sad and sorry and maybe just a little bit embarrassed for Lily Allen, guys, because she went and said a thing. Because, in case you didn't know, her latest album, Sheezus, didn't do incredibly well. It didn't do horribly by any means -- in its opening week, it was number one in the UK and number 12 in the U.S. -- but apparently it didn't do as well as Lily had hoped. And that's why she came out an ...

Katy Perry Media Call
Katy Perry's green hair was one thing. But now, according to various blogs and comment boards, KP has simply gone to far by rocking some sort of weird green body-stocking thing while touring a Canadian "pioneer village" earlier this week. Apparently, Katy was under the impression that being in a 19th Century-themed park north of the border meant she was free to toss on whatever freakish textile she'd been saving in her costume chest without ...

Lady Gaga Costume Changes are Good Music

The Lady Gaga Gallery Unveiling
I always knew it would be hard to tell when Lady Gaga’s career was taking a dive. It’s like knowing when yogurt goes bad. When I bought it new it was already rancid milk. Lady Gaga looked desperate onstage when she was on top of the world. She looks precisely the same with her Artpop album selling somewhere between The Best of the Oak Ridge Boys and a Criss Angel spoken word performance. The bruises on her elbows can’t be a good sign. Nor the dressing up like Sailor Moon ...
