MANHATTAN — Lady Gaga skipped the pants in favor of a pair of fishnets and a black leather jacket during a chilly HBO film shoot on the Lower East Side Monday, according to reports.

The mother monster appeared to be channeling her inner Amy Winehouse as she strutted down Rivington Street wearing a pair of retro black sunglasses, a studded black bra and panties and her hair teased up into a bleached-blond and black-striped beehive, according to photos from Lady Gaga Now, a fan website.

The sky-high platform wedge heels were all Gaga, however, as were the razor-sharp black and red studded fingernails and fingerless black leather gloves with massive black spikes.

Gaga shot the footage for an HBO special slated to run May 7, according to the Lower East Side blog Bowery Boogie.

Later that night, the Manhattan native wowed a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden, giving several shout-outs to her hometown, according to published reports.

"My name is Lady Gaga, and I was born and raised in the unbreakable streets of New York City," the pop artist, who later donned a Yankee cap, said after appearing onstage, according to MTV.com.

Gaga also reportedly sent her love to the FDNY, the music website said.

"And God bless the New York Fire Department," Gaga reportedly told the crowd. "They told me I couldn't light my piano on fire."

Lady Gaga will complete her two-night stand at the Garden on Tuesday. Tickets for the sold out show are still available second-hand on StubHub.com. Prices ranged between $83 and $1,550 Tuesday morning.
