Did Lady Gaga siphon off charity money that was supposed to go to victims of Japan's tsunami and earthquake? Who knows. But she certainly didn't let the controversy interfere with a trip to Japan last weekend to perform in a benefit concert and make a number of media appearances.

Here's a clip of the pop star dressed up as a panda on the Japanese talk show Sukkiri. Gaga doesn't do a great job explaining what inspired her bearish new look. ("I've been eating a lot of bamboo this week," she says.) But you'll quickly forget about the outfit as Gaga embarks on a seemingly never-ending journey of awkwardness with the show's many hosts.
