The singer also admits she “stole” the idea for the hat she wore on the ABC late-night show.

After a riot broke out in Hollywood for the Electric Daisy Carnival premiere, police were nervous fans could get out of control for Lady Gaga's Jimmy Kimmel concert Thursday.

Cops were dressed in riot gear, but the concert went on without incident. Lady Gaga wrote a note thanking police for keeping her safe, according to TMZ.com, which has a copy.

Gaga performed six songs instead of the scheduled three to thank her fans. Watch below.

During her interview with Kimmel, Gaga admitted to ripping off a style idea, which she has been criticized for a number of times. (Bette Midler called her out on swiping her wheelchair-mermaid routine earlier this month, and she's been accused of being very similar to Madonna.)

She donned a hat that spelled out GAGA in feathers. When Kimmel asked how she came up with the idea for it, she said, "This is a Philip Treacy hat. He made one for Isabella Blow many years ago, so you know, I just stole the idea."

Gaga also talked about cooking on the road.

 “I’m really great at making a traditional fennel red gravy, it’s a fresh pomodoro sauce. I make it for the producers a lot on the road, because they actually followed me on the tour bus- we built a studio bus with all of our equipment so that I could record," she said.
