Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson team up for Met Ball afterparty

Lady Gaga and her collaborator Mark Ronson reunited to perform at a Met Gala afterparty on Monday night (02May16).

The Poker Face singer has been working with the Uptown Funk producer on the follow-up to her 2013 album ARTPOP and they teamed up in New York City to perform a short set at a glitzy afterparty.


Video footage taken from inside the bash shows them both playing electric guitars while Gaga sings a cover of Talking Heads' 1983 hit Burning Down The House.


In the clip, Lady Gaga, 30, is dressed an open black tuxedo with a white T-shirt and sporting the voluminous glam rock hairstyle she showed off on the red carpet earlier that evening. She kept to the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology theme by wearing a silver jacket inspired by a computer circuit board, futuristic corset, silver underpants and extremely high platform heels.


Mark, 40, also attended the main event in a black tuxedo with his wife Josephine de la Baume.


The producer had spoken about his recording sessions with Gaga in January (16), telling Britain's Evening Standard newspaper, "We worked together in London... I think she’s incredibly talented and kind of a muso at heart beyond all the giant pop hits. I would love to work some more with her - she’s an incredible singer/songwriter.”


Gaga told radio host Carson Daly in March (16) she has been working on her music "every single day" since her last tour ended two years ago. She said, "I promise you it will be worth the wait."


The A-list pair weren't the only Met Gala performers; The Weeknd was the official entertainer inside the main event and sang a string of hits, including The Hills and Can't Feel My Face. He also brought rapper Nas onstage for a surprise duet of The Weeknd's track Tell Your Friends.


Social media was banned from inside the event, but Kerry Washington and Kim Kardashian flouted the rules to share footage of his set on Snapchat.
