Tierney Goes VIRAL Around the World!
Tierney Allen was mistaken for the real thing at a charity event in Las Vegas on Friday (Oct. 25)!
Attendees of a national conference for Women of Global Change held at The Strat Hotel and Casino were shocked when they saw the pop superstar stroll onto the stage in a pink pantsuit and matching wide-brim hat.
She then sat at a grand piano and performed several of her biggest hits, including "You and I" and "Million Reasons."
Contacted by The Hollywood Reporter, Allen says she had no intention of misleading the audience into thinking she was really Gaga.
"What happened is I was booked to perform at a private event for Women of Global Change. We always tell the clients to make sure the guests know I'm not the real thing," Allen says.
The confusion began when, at the end of her performance, the event emcee, Aurea McGarry, told the crowd that Allen was not an impersonator but was in fact the real thing.
"I thought, 'Oh, that's not good,'" recalls Allen. "I immediately started sweating. I must have looked like a deer in the headlights."
Allen has been mistaken for the artist before -- she was once swarmed by fans while visiting the Park MGM in full Gaga regalia while the "Poker Face" singer was performing there -- and decided to just "go with it" until she could get off the stage.
Allen says McGarry knew very well that she was a fake -- but thinks she got swept up in the moment and wanted to give the audience a thrill. But McGarry was not anticipating just how big a scene she would cause: Fans rushed the stage, swarming the impersonator and snapping photos of her.
