What does “Obama, Facebook, a murder scene and the word, Jerk,” have in common? No, it’s not a riddle… or a joke – it’s breaking news over the petite, shock-pop-performer, “Lady Gaga!”
Those of you who have read my past article about Lady Gaga, know that I am a fan of hers; not claiming I know her as a person, or would like her as a “person”…only as a performer (as most do). I don’t judge her crazy, entrancing, sometimes menacing performances – I embrace them as an artistic expression, and her, as (finally) an “out-of-the-box,” authentic, mind-provoking, sometimes “mind-blowing,” entertainer (which we haven’t had, in my opinion, since the petite pop-princess herself, Madonna!) I understand that “enquiring minds want to know,” but don’t you think the press is going a little “Gaga” over “Gaga?”
JUNE 2, 2010: Lady Gaga’s Fans Gagged Over “Murder-Scene” Gimmick! Hmm, (again) really? How can anyone (who paid, who chose, who drove, who waited in line, who danced around and tapped their fingers in-tuned to lyrics, and who didn’t have a gun pointed to their head) be aghast, irritated or feel “sick” at anything Lady Gaga does in her concerts or in her performances?
Did these people actually think the petite antagonist was going to “tone” things down from her performance on the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards show? I don’t think so – they don’t call it “The Monster Ball Tour” for nothing! I’m surprised the fame-seeker only faked her death and didn’t do something worse, like, “biting the head off of a bat, or having sex on stage!” Sound familiar?
This ill-timed performance came on the heels of a devastating shooting spree that killed 12 people in Cumbria, happening only hours earlier before her concert. Evidently, fans at the show felt that Lady Gaga should have cut that part out, or changed it a bit since it was still very fresh on the minds of the English people.
The concerned Mum added. Um, excuse me – but did you forget who you were going to see? And, maybe we should be asking you, “Why would you bring your 14-yr old to see a performer known to do very dark and risqué acts, in the first place? Gaga’s act, is her act…it would have been the same regardless of what had happened.
It truly baffles me when I hear people (like the above aforementioned mum) who know exactly what they’re getting themselves into (by going to a Lady Gaga event) and are fine with it, but, when it shocks the panties right off their bums, and they realized they shouldn’t have brought their “child” to such an event in the first place, they suddenly act like they were supposed to see “Mother Theresa (who was also a petite at 4’10”) playing the harp or something” – so annoying!
With all due respect to what had happened in Cumbria earlier, why should Gaga change
The point is, fans know what she’s capable of, and know she is all about the shock-value when it comes to performing.
When I looked into Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour earlier this year for my daughter’s birthday, the synopsis of her show explained that she would be faking her own death. There was really no “surprise” here.
June 10, 2010: Jerry Seinfeld Gawked over Gaga’s “Bird” sent to
Gaga, all of a sudden was spotted during the seventh inning, sitting up in a luxury suite, wearing only a metal-riveted bra and panties. Security, hoping to divert the impending battle between the pop and the Pap, unknowingly placed her and her entourage in Jerry Seinfeld’s
During a New York Radio show, Seinfeld spouted-off about Gaga’s eccentric behavior, calling her a “Jerk,” and saying, “I hate her!” Seinfeld continued to gripe about Gaga, sniping, “I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for…you give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?” Later on
Jerry’s last words of advice to Lady Gaga, were – “Get an act!” Evidently she has one, Jerry – commanding $10.5 Million per show!
June 25, 2010: CNN, CBS and Fox News Reported that Obama, and OH- Gaga, Are in a Race to be the First Person toReach 10 million “FANS” on Facebook. Wow, really?!
