Classic Lady Gaga is back.

Welcome back, classic Lady Gaga! In a video clip to promote ticket sales for her upcoming ARTPOP Ball Tour in the UK, Mother Monster brought back a look from her "Poker Face" days with a platinum, full-bang hairstyle, her signature pointy shoulder pads, and indoor sunglasses (of course). Little Monsters will be pleased to know they can dust off their The Fame-era wigs. It's OK, Monsters, you can temporarily retire your smeared and white face- and body powder. It was too hard to copy on an everyday basis anyway.
In the video, Gaga dons a sequined black suit jacket and hotpants (which would be #NSFW at, like, a law firm) for a casual run through a warehouse dotted with metallic Gazing Balls à la Jeff Koons, who designed ARTPOP's cover. Given ARTPOP's lower-than-expected sales, it wouldn't be surprising if Gaga is using her old style to appeal to nostalgic fans who may have been turned off by the singer's recent high-art antics. Whether that's the case or not, we're hopeful it means that the ARTPOP Ball Tour will be part retrospective, with Gaga performing her older hits (and looks) alongside new ones. Though the video is for tickets in the UK, it's doing a great job of getting us amped about the other outfits she has in store for us come May 4, when the tour kicks off in the States.
