TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Pop megastar Lady Gaga says she is toning down her provocative image during her first trip to Israel and is excited about seeing "sacred and holy" Jerusalem.
The songstress born Stefani Germanotta says her visit to Jerusalem will be "an emotional and spiritual experience." She also has plans to swim in the Dead Sea.
In a nod to local fans at a press conference Monday, Lady Gaga covered her skimpy top with a black leather jacket emblazoned with
a Star of David made of silver spikes on the back.
Lady Gaga said she is more excited to see Jerusalem than to "get drunk in a bar," though she also said she might "get drunk in Jerusalem."
Lady Gaga will perform the last show of her Fame Ball tour in Tel Aviv on Wednesday.
