Though she’s the biggest pop star in the world right now, even Lady Gaga can’t sneak a particularly suggestive piece of clothing past Fox’s Standards & Practices department.

The Mother Monster appears as a guest mentor on “American Idol” tonight, and as Ryan pointed out on his radio show Wednesday, her shoes were cause for concern for the editors at the show.

“She came in broadcast standards-sensitive shoes,” Ryan explained to his co-host Ellen K. “wearing a very popular female tool on her feet.”

We’ll leave the specifics to your imagination, but some may call the tool a “disco stick” that served as the heel of her very unique shoes.

“Only Gaga can put herself into footwear that is a device of pleasure,” continued Ryan.

Tonight, the 25 year-old singer will guide Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart through the songs of Leiber & Stoller, the prolific songwriting duo who penned many of Elvis Presley greatest hits.

Watch Gaga mentoring the Idols and look for how the show manages to edit around her signature shoes tonight at 8/7c on Fox!
