Now here’s something no one saw coming: Last week, Lady Gaga crashed a jazz event hosted by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst to perform some Frank Sinatra standards. Y’know, just a casual Thursday night.
Mother Monster graced the stage of the Black Rabbit Rose lounge, where Durst has been hosting a regular jazz night every Thursday for some years now. She exuded old Hollywood glamor as she took the spotlight, sporting a lush fur coat and a platinum blonde beehive updo. “I’m here to ruin the party, I’m so sorry,” she said to rousing applause from the audience.
“My whole life, you know, I’ve been called irresponsible,” Gaga added, before segueing into a sultry rendition of “Call Me Irresponsible.” She then dived into a performance of the perennial classic, “Fly Me to the Moon,” which included a groovy instrumental break from the band, before ending her set with a literal mic drop.
Both songs are featured on the setlist Gaga’s Jazz and Piano shows, which are part of her Enigma concert residency at the Las Vegas MGM Park Theater. Watch her surprise performances below.
