L.A. Loves Lady GaGa At The Staples Center

The little monsters of L.A. expressed their inner GaGa at the Staples Center Wednesday night for the first installment of the superstar's stop two-day stop in town.

Lady GaGa's much anticipated Monster Ball tour arrived in Los Angeles Wednesday night, and fans couldn't be more excited. The first night of GaGa's show was nothing short of explosive, which is what everyone expected from the pop icon. It's safe to say that Gaga never disappoints.

After the outrageous glam rockers of Semi Precious Weapons warmed up the antsy crowd, GaGa emerged with wild stage outfits (we can't get enough of them!), and danced her ass off with a slew of back up dancers. We felt a tinge of Britney when we watched her -- circa 2001's Dream Within a Dream Tour, pre-meltdown, of course. GaGa got theatric as she played a piano decorated with a spiral of fire, and delivered us dramatic versions of our favorite tunes. It's clear form her performance why she's owning the music scene -- girlfriend's got talent AND gives everyone a reason to let their inner tranny run wild.
