The entertainer entered the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on New York’s Upper East Side on Thursday night on top of a convertible. She posed for pictures and interacted with some fans.

Inside, she laid in the bottle in a sparkly top, black skirt and red wig. Then she took off some clothing and a wig — now appearing in lingerie, including a thong — and began receiving a tattoo of the back of her neck (she had shaved the bottom half of the back of her head).

Lady Gaga applied makeup and played on an iPad inside the bottle, where she was joined by four others. Edith Piaf played in background, as did David Bowie’s “Fame” and various songs that featured Kanye West. She got her tattoo — and danced in her seat — as Mr. West’s latest hit “Mercy” blasted in the background.

The masquerade black tie event featured a few hundred people, mostly dressed with eye masks and headgear. Celebrity attendees included Yoko Ono, Marc Jacobs, Paris Hilton, Michael Strahan, Jason Wu and Lindsay Lohan, who arrived late for the event.

Lady Gaga also debuted a short film called “Lady Gaga Film” for the fragrance in collaboration with director Steven Klein.

Geoffrey Rush tired of finding scripts on his doorstep

Geoffrey Rush — who played speech therapist Lionel Logue in the Oscar-winning film “The King’s Speech” — has said he first found the script left in brown paper wrapping on his Australia home’s doorstep. Now, he said, he wishes he had kept that story to himself.

Mr. Rush said other aspiring filmmakers have followed suit, leaving all manner of projects at his front door in Melbourne since the movie came out in 2010. As he put it: “The brown paper package phenomenon continues.”

In a recent interview promoting his film “Eye of the Storm,” the actor asked that prospective Oscar-winners route submissions through his agent. He assured them that if their script has a “keen and interesting and enthusiastic” cover letter, it will be read.

Plus, Mr. Rush said, he might accidentally bury a doorstep delivery “under a pile of correspondence or something and forget about it.”
