We’ve seen a number of photos from last night’s MTV EMA Awards, and per usual, one performer’s attire stands out: David Hasselhoff!

Just kidding. It’s Lady Gaga. The melodramatic singer wore what looked from some angles like a satellite dish, and from others like a frying pan, on her head. She matched it to a few different outfits, one red, and two silver. The hat completely masks her face, which we have to assume is a commentary on the dual, public vs. private lives of the people who have single-handedly brought hats back this year: British royalty.

Very profound, Gaga. Very profound indeed.
