Lady GaGa is no Ashley Dupre. But she does dress like one.

Who can really blame Russian police for a misunderstanding in which mistook Lady for a streetwalker while she was posing for photos in Moscow’s Red Square.

GaGa, who was wearing a leather leotard at the time – do you even need to ask why? – asked her driver to stop at the landmark to take some pictures of her.

That’s when suspicious cops arrived, out of nowhere, and called a halt to the dubious operation. Apparently in the Russian capital, people wearing leather leotards while posing in front of historic sites is not as commonplace as you might think.

Pretty much your standard Lady GaGa fashion choice.

Eventually, Lady GaGa was able to clear up the terrible misunderstanding and get her barely covered ass out of Russia. She continued on to Australia, where more people surely will mistake her for a prostitute, but will likely be less surprised.

How could the dance-pop diva possibly be mistaken for a lady of the night? It’s quite obvious if you browse through our gallery of Lady GaGa pictures
