At 11:26 of this talk show segment (), Lady Gaga said, "I don't like it when fashion fails me."
Then the host said, "It rarely does...because it's always bought."

Does "fail" here mean "let her down"?
And why did the host say "because it's always bought"?
Did he mean "fashion always accepts Lady Gaga"?

Yes, 'fail' means 'let her down.'

I'm not sure the word he says is 'bought' but his sense is that she rules fashion and not vice versa.
