Also known as "Monster Paws."
1.) A term coined by singer Lady GaGa after the release of her song, "Bad Romance," in which she demonstrates a Michael Jackson a la "Thriller" hand motion. It is formed by spacing the fingers apart and contorting them, as if mocking the claw of an animal, or - more fittingly - a monster.
2.) A hand sign often displayed at Lady GaGa concerts by fans in which they mirror the aforementioned action.
2.) When she was live in Chicago, GaGa yelled at the crowd to "get those claws up, monsters! I wanna see your monster claws!"
