'American Idol' Censors Lady Gaga's Explicit Footwear

The pop star rocked black stilettos with penises on the heels -- but they were edited out of the family-friendly show

Lady Gaga may have made some of the American Idol contestants blush with her over-the-top comments on Wednesday's show. But what we didn't see was apparently a lot more provocative!

According to TMZ.com, Idol producers had to censor almost everything about the 25-year-old pop star -- from her potty mouth right down to her shoes! Producers were forced to cover up the heels of the Grammy winner's black stilettos with an American Idol logo -- because each boasted a Lucite penis!

It's kind of a shame that the shoes needed to be altered, especially since the Void of Course pair cost more than $4,500 a pair.

But Idol big wigs could only do so much to keep Gaga's blatant sexuality under wraps. She still managed to grind with now-eliminated contestant James Durbin and tell religious country boy Scott McCreery to imagine the microphone was his girlfriend who wants him to stick his "tongue down (her) throat."

We're pretty sure the behind-the-scenes Idol crew knew what they were in for when they asked Lady Gaga to appear on the show. (Isn't her outrageous behavior one of the main reasons she's such a phenomenon right now?) But it still seemed like some the young contestants were slightly weirded out by the Mother Monster's antics!
