Lady GaGa thrilled to perform with Judy Garland’s ‘Wizard of Oz’ slippersApril 1st, 2011 - 7:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 01 (ANI): Looks like birthday girl Lady GaGa was over the moon after getting 25,000 pounds ruby slippers made for Judy Garland in ‘The Wizard of Oz’.The zany singer reportedly performed in the iconic shoes at a gig in LA on her 25th birthday.
Her management gave her the slippers, believed to have been made at the time of the 1939 movie, before she went on stage at the Staples Center this week.
Gaga told fans how she once lost out on the role of Dorothy to the school bully.”I wanted to be Dorothy so bad. I was in 8th grade and she was a senior. I definitely deserved to get it, but I didn’t get it. I was one of the people in the chorus, the worst role,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
“On behalf of myself and all of those bullied around the world, now these ruby slippers are mine,” she said.
“When you don’t feel like Dorothy today, maybe you feel like someone on the chorus or the Scarecrow - just know you will have opportunities in your real life to change things and maybe someone will hand you a pair of ruby slippers,” she added. (ANI)
