The rocker, who says she won't get the chance to view any other designers' collections, later joined the Fashion's Night Out festivities at Bloomingdales. "I've been in tour-mode, so to be dropped back in New York into Fashion Week feels like a Saturday Night Live skit...it's so hilarious and over the top," she said.
