Backstage at Lady Gaga's interview with Jay Leno on Valentine's Day there was some undiscovered footage of their conversation behind the scenes. Although he had questioned her publicly about her outfits and get-up at the Grammy's one day prior to the interview, the full story remained undisclosed.
"I'm horrible with secrets", Gaga admits herself "And, I really want my little monsters to trust me and take me for who I really am, so I decided I might as well explain the story." Although that was of course not a real egg Gaga hid out in reportedly for three days, her original plan was unsuccessful.
"My grandparents live on a farm in West Virginia where they raise chickens and peacocks; since I am an all around nerd who loves science, music, and fashion I felt I could combine all my smarts together to form a stage set at the Grammy's. I asked my granny if I could perhaps try cross-breeding her beloved peacock, George with Graecie, a hen and see what would occur as a result. She turned to me and asked "Well, what do you want to do with that egg?' then I replied 'Granny, it's going to be the size of my entire body and I am going to stay in there for 3 full days, then emerge from it when I perform.'" Apparently her grandmother was bewildered by Gaga's desire, but they both decided it would be alright.
Approximately three days later, however her science experiment failed and the chicken ended up eating the peacock- as a matter of fact she swallowed poor George whole. Gaga's grandmother was not too pleased and yelled "That's it! No more breeding my animals, you make your own fake egg and stay inside that for three days, weeks, months, years! And no more meat dresses either! I've had it with the animal abuse!" "Yes granny," Gaga replied.
Fortunately Gaga's failure to cross-breed two different species did not interfere with her three Grammy awards she won, where her grandmother eventually... did... congratulate her.
