Lady Gaga Is Her Own Tznius Police

Lady Gaga is in Israel for a concert, and she has apparently made statements about not being quite so wild and crazy while she’s in the Holy Land. According to mtv.com:

At a press conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Monday, Gaga covered up her skin-exposing black top with a retro black leather jacket jazzed up with a spiky silver Star of David and declared that her maiden trip to Jerusalem would be a “an emotional and spiritual experience,” according to The Associated Press.

Promising to temper her provocative appearance and statements while on the trip, the “Poker Face” singer is set to close out her tour with a concert in Tel Aviv on Wednesday. She said she also plans to swim in the Dead Sea and looks forward to visiting Jerusalem, which she called “sacred and holy.”

Of course, the woman who’s known for wacky couture outfits and breezy statements about her own sexuality can’t erase all traces of the personality that has made her such a pop-culture sensation. Just as she said she’s more eager to visit Jerusalem than to “get drunk in a bar,” Gaga then said she actually just might “get drunk in Jerusalem.”

In case you were wondering what a toned down Lady Gaga looks like, behold, Gaga’s ensemble while touring the Old City:
