Lady Gaga At Grammy Nominations Concert Reminds Us Of Taylor Momsen (PHOTOS)

Lady Gaga is obviously a style original, having basically invented the phrase "meat dress" and introducing us to more different kinds of headgear than we ever knew existed.

But there is the rare occasion where it seems like the pop star is pulling inspiration from someone else.

At last night's Grammy Nominations, Lady Gaga received her three noms and also performed at a concert benefitting The Grammy Museum's educational initiatives. But despite the light, happy cause, Gaga chose a super dark look consisting of head-to-toe black, including smudgy raccoon rings around her eyes.

With the dark eyeliner splotches, Gaga reminded us of a Dalmatian puppy... and of Taylor Momsen. Momsen, formerly of "Gossip Girl" but now known for trying to get her band, The Pretty Reckless, off the ground, is famous for her insanely dark eyeliner, the kind that extends inches above and below her peepers.

(She's also famous for flashing her audience and giving them lap dances, but that's a story for another time.)
