... Gaga was the only artist to perform with a mask?

From all the performances (which was very few compared to previous years) that we had during the pandemic, I can only recall Lady Gaga's VMAs where everybody was wearing a mask, including the artist. I keep seeing these performances where only back-up dancers and back-up singers are wearing it, yet, I feel like the point is to make it a focus. She even wore them to accept her awards, and made it fashionable. I'm lowkey disappointed in other artists that didn't do the same, or didn't even cared.

What do you guys think?

wearing masks is a kindness act to those around you, so of course gaga wore one.

even though the dancers and gaga herself obviously got covid tested previously, i think its pretty great how they're all wearing masks, like they're encouraging others to do the same.

Ariana was standing right next to ha :ohhh:

With a mask :ohhh: and I don't think Ariana is the problematic type concerning COVID-19, but I see your point.

No I meant Gaga wasn't the only artist to perform with a mask, Ariana did too, technically :katy:

Sorry, you're right :icant: In my mind, I included her talking about Gaga's VMAs since it was her only performance. Mess!

I was about to say that indeed, if there is physical touch and proximity, it's kinda whatever wearing a mask, but anyway. :icant:

I still love so much that she took time out of her speeches to implore people to help protect one another.  Seems like it didn't work but I'm glad she tried

What?? Who criticised it, the media loved it and it was the headline of the night 

People accused her of using a mask just so she could "lip-sync" and were saying the mask hindered her from singing well. There was a whole debate around the mask whether it had a bult in mic on or not. Seriously, people were talking about her not singing live,  meanwhile, the other artists who performed that night (besides The Weeknd) were actually the ones that lipsynced.

People really tried it.

Let's not forget that the performance mask had a huge hole in order to allow her to sing live

But, yeah, it's clear that here the important thing was the projected image, as it's clear that they all had their tests done for sure :oscar:

I do think it's nice that Gaga chose to portray that image.

Spoiler

some of the masks she was wearing wouldn't be very effective in real life though if we're being honest :billie:

As a few have already said, although some of them probably wouldn’t be effective, it still was an important, kind and smart move of awareness for the pandemic situation at the moment. Who knows how many selfish people, specially gays that are basically the biggest part of her fanbase, changed their minds and started using it after that? So that’s that! You go, Gaga!
