According to a slightly dubious British tabloid, Lady Gaga recently told fans she'd bought some counterfeit designer goods while in Japan last month. "In Tokyo, they have all these stores that have fake Chanel and Versace ... And I’m an Italian from New York, so I still buy it. This jacket is a fake."
