She's back! Lady Gaga isn't exactly hitting the ground running just yet (literally, anyway), but the singer gave fans hope for her eventual return to the stage on Tuesday, April 2, when she was photographed back on her feet in NYC's East Village.
Gaga, who turned 27 on March 28, decided to forgo her trademark towering heels and outrageous outfit for a relatively demure fur shrug, black pants and low black kitten heels for her first jaunt through the city.
The "Born This Way" singer was photographed in a Louis Vuitton wheelchair less than one week ago during a birthday trip to Chicago on Thursday, March 28, as part of her month-long recovery from a late-February hip surgery.
The pop star was wheeled into Chicago's Spiaggia eatery, where she enjoyed the restaurant's six-course tasting menu with beau Taylor Kinney, 31.
