LandlineTV: Lady Gaga Fashion Inspired By Children's Nightmares (VIDEO)

Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" hits stores today, fresh off of her guest appearance on "SNL." So since we have Gaga on the brain anyway, it seems as good a time as any to speculate on where the pop icon gets her ideas.

Now, clearly, her music comes from a place that we dare not look because we'll find Mau'dib there staring back at us and who wants that? But thanks to LandlineTV, we can at least pinpoint the origin of her sense of style.

For everyone who has described one of her ensembles as being "like something out of a nightmare," congratulations, you were right!
