There are no words for our reaction when we saw Lady Gaga's latest getup. Jaws dropped, eyebrows raised, minds boggled. All of the questions that flashed through our minds took a backseat to the most important questions of all: What is she?

Donning a costume that can only be described as sparkly silver spikes (or tentacles),  there was much debate at the PopCrush office as to whether or not Mother Monster was supposed to be a star or a sea urchin. Considering the fact that she will be performing at NYC's famous tree-lighting in Rockefeller Plaza next week, we're gonna go ahead and guess that she's vying to be the tree-topper.

Stepping out in Paris, Lady Gaga starts to inflate her iridescent costume.
