Missing Persons

So, if Lady Gaga stole “Born this Way” from Madonna, and “Joe Calderone” from Annie Lennox (see Grammy’s, 1984), then she certainly snatched her overall look—peroxided mop and blowfish eye makeup—from Dale Bozzio of Missing Persons. The difference, of course, is that new wave goddess Bozzio and her MP band were groundbreakers of their day—no one looked like them or sounded like them, and, per their mandate, nobody ever walked in L.A. It was the first time we’d seen a plastic, transparent bra, and mental hopscotcher Bozzio had us convinced she was a sex-hungry alien direct from Planet Porn. Now they’re back for a long-awaited reunion tour, so grab your teenage know-it-alls and force them to worship one of the most iconic queens from outer space. Meat dress not required.
