You have reached the Virgin Mobile Little Road Monster blog. Here I will be sharing tour stories, saying funny things, introducing you to Little Monsters around the country and eating a lot of poptarts...
“The Monster Ball will set you free!” proclaims Lady Gaga at her Phoenix stop on her Monster Ball tour. If you have been fortunate enough to experience her show, then you know that this is very well the case. All inhibition, prejudice, and insecurity’s are left at the door when you enter The Monster Ball. Though this was my third (and final) time experiencing The Monster Ball I still felt the same chills crawl up my spine as the thumping bass intro’d Dance In The Dark, just like I did during my first Monster Ball in December 2009. However, something was vastly different about this Monster Ball - I was able to experience the show as a Virgin Mobile Local Little Monster Blogger. As a VMLLMB (sorry, it’s 12am and that is way tooooo long of a title for me to spell out right now), I was able to extensively talk to and interview fellow Little Monsters about their experience at the Monster Ball and most importantly, about their outfits! As a self-proclaimed fashion-addict (as in I NEED fashion in my life to live + breath), I was highly interested in the inspiration and meaning behind some of the most creative and, dare I say, freeing looks of the evening. I was thrilled to hear about the glitter, studs, blood, sweat, and purple tear-drops that went into creating these looks. I was also able to capture the moment when a lucky Little Monster receives a call from Gaga in the audience! To top it all off, I was able to meet and talk to Gaga’s personal chef, one of her backup dancers, as well as one of her backup singers! I will be posting a comprehensive blog entry on my own fashion blog (www.chemisenoire.com) with photos and stories of all of the outfits from the show! Really, words cannot describe how amazing this experience was, and how fitting of a way for me to experience my final Monster Ball. I made some amazing Little Monster friends. Special thanks to Dannielle, Tracey, Talenthouse, Virgin Mobile, and Gaga! We are all superstars! Keep in touch, Little Monsters! Twitter or Facebook
