NEW YORK (AP) - Lady Gaga launched her debut perfume while being inside a life size perfume bottle.
The avant garde pop star was in a large bottle - a replica of her "Fame" fragrance bottle - at New York's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, appearing in a transparent glass where attendees took photos of Gaga and watched her get a tattoo on her neck.
The entertainer entered the museum Thursday night on top of a convertible, where she posed for pictures. Inside, she laid in the bottle in a sparkly top, skirt and red wig. Then she stripped her clothes - now appearing in lingerie, including a thong - and began receiving a tattoo (she shaved the bottom half of the back of her head this week).
The masquerade black tie event featured a few hundred people, mostly dressed with eye masks and headgear.
