More recently, she sat down with StyleList to talk about the elaborate makeup she'll be wearing on tour, but the conversation naturally turned to music, too. As she underwent a transformation at the hands of Make Up For Ever at their studios in New York, Love observed that her style has certainly changed since the early '90s. "One time Marilyn Manson said to me, in like, I don't know '99 or something, 'You can come to my Halloween party if you dress as old you," Love said. "I realized there's been a demarcation between, like, black eyes and smeary red lips [and the more glam, polished image she developed after that] and that had become associated with my look."
Reminiscent of the elaborate on-stage looks of Lady Gaga, Love got decked out in enormous false eyelashes, purple eyeliner and dark red lips. At the mention of the pop sensation, Love said at first she "wasn't sure" about Gaga.
But Love, who calls Elton John a friend, became a convert after watching his Grammy duet with the singer, and says she's only heard good things about her from mutual friend, photographer David LaChapelle. "[H]e loves her," Love says. "He really helped legitimize her by doing a Rolling Stone cover. He came in like, 'I met this girl and I love her, she doesn't have a mean bone in her body.'"
"She did something the other night," Love added, referring to the Grammy performance, "and I was like, you know what honey, take the cake, seriously."
But Love admits she's not a huge fan of Gaga's music. "I don't think her music is that compelling, but that's cause I listen to rock music. I'm an old hippie. You know what I listened to last night? Stevie [bleeping] Nicks."
