And then apparently she went to the Chateau Marmont to eat and her friend told her she looked like Amy Winehouse came back from the dead. You know, normal people stuff. From The National Enquirer:
It ain’t easy to shake up tough-as-nails LADY GAGA, but she flat-out freaked while dining at see-and-be-seen Chateau Marmont – rocking a long black wig, heavy makeup and mounds of dark mascara – when a pal passing by her table did a wide-eyed double-take and told her: “Wow, you really startled me – I thought AMY WINEHOUSE had come back from the dead!”
Stunned, Gaga ga-ga-gasped, literally dropped her fork on her plate – and dashed off to her room.
Half an hour later, La Gaga re-emerged sporting a red wig and subdued warpaint, and not looking at all like the tragic, drug-plagued British star she’d idolized before her tragic death at age 27.
What the hell is this, a Noel Coward play?
If you’d like to further mourn our dearly departed Miss Winehouse, you’ll soon be able to pay tribute at her memorial statue.

Elton John and Lady GaGa have been friends for ages and she’s already godmother to his and partner David Furnish’s son Zachary. Therefore, it made perfect sense for her to take on the same role with the couple’s new son, Elijah. Considering she’s apparently one of the most influential people on the planet, that may have been a wise choice.
From Extra TV:
Elton and David spilled the beans on baby Elijah’s godmother. It turns out Lady Gaga will be looking out for both little ones.
“She’s a great role model,” Elton said. “She’s been a great godmother to Zachary. She came to bathe him in Las Vegas. She was already dressed to go to the show, and she was sitting there and she bathed him, and she was like dressed like Audrey Hepburn… and she fed him… We’re all bonkers in this business, but we’re human beings at the same time.”
I’m torn on GaGa as a role model. The whole rampant drug and alcohol use isn’t so great and she does dress a bit inappropriately for children, but I guess her politics are pretty good and she’s pretty generous with her money and gold wheelchairs and the like, so hey, why not?
Here’s a video of Elton and David talking about GaGa:

TIME Magazine put out their “Most Influential Icon” (of the last decade) list out and take the #2 spot is Lady Gaga, with Barack Obama right behind her. The #1 Most Influential person is politician Aung San Suu Kyi.
It would help to know what their criteria is and what they consider “influential.” In terms of pop culture, music, and fashion, yeah Lady Gaga is definitely more influential than the President of the United States. They say it’s by who has “had the most impact on our world over the last decade.” Oh, okay, thanks for the specificities.
It’s worth mentioning that TIME didn’t exactly choose these on their own. They came up with a list of people they deemed influential and then asked the public to vote. So that explains a lot. She has a lot of fans who really love her, and she loves them right back.
And hey, it could be worse. At least they didn’t include Bieber this time.

Lady GaGa may be ten shades of f-cking ridiculous, but no one can say she’s not generous when it comes to giving to those in need. Take Little Monster Emma C, who suffers from scoliosis and hip dysplasia – she’s needed a hip replacement for years but has been unable to afford it. Somehow GaGa found out about it, contacted her and is personally paying for Emma’s treatment. Plus, she’s throwing in that gold wheelchair for good measure!
Emma wrote online:
“GaGa reached out to me and is hooking me up with her team that did her surgery in NYC as I have been needing a hip replacement for quite some time.
“We’re planning on flying out this weekend, all expenses paid, for a consult. The gesture is absolutely incredible… I broke down sobbing. Words can’t describe how incredibly Blessed I am.”
That’s definitely an incredibly kind gesture – and almost makes up for that Tony Bennett album she’s recording – but you know the other fans are going to be dead jealous of Emma and wonder why they didn’t get picked for special attention from Mother Monster because that’s the kind of shit people do. Regardless, this is a great story and moves GaGa a little further up on the bearable chart.

Social networking is a great tool to expand your brand and keep in touch with your fans when you’re a big time celeb (or want to be one), so it’s no surprise that mostly everyone in showbiz under the age of 30 is all over Twitter, sharing tidbits about their everyday lives, getting into feuds with fellow artists and/or hateful fans and quite often making us cringe.
When Justin Bieber was named the most followed person on Twitter last year, some people wondered how that could be. Well, I’ll tell you how: nearly half of his followers are from fake accounts. Ta da! Fake accounts are deemed such when they are following fewer than 50 people, have 1 or fewer followers and who have never tweeted. Justin’s fake count clocks in at an impressive 45% – impressively sad, that is.
Check out this infographic (I love infographics!):
Oh, snap! Even Katy Perry and Lady GaGa are doing better than the Biebs. No surprise, of course – you’d have to be a robot (or 12) to think Justin has anything worthwhile to say. He’s the worst. So, what do you say? Do you follow Justin? Which stars DO you follow? Do any of them actually have anything interesting to say?

And then left yoga in her stupid Louis Vuitton wheelchair. If you can wear high heels (and I don’t care that they’re not very high, they’re still HIGH HEELS) and go to Bikram yoga then why the HELL do you need to be pushed around in your golden or LV wheelchair?
Also not that I give a f-ck but that jacket looks like real fur, so I hope she’s ready for the PETA brigade. PETA’s taken issue with her before. Her monsters were very sad to learn that she wears real fur. DUH, of course she’s gonna wear real fur. She’s into fashion, gets free garments from major fashion houses around the world, usually goes for the avante garde side of fashion, and all of those things mean that real animals are going to be used. To all of those distraught monsters, Gaga said,
…i want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life…I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. “Animal Rights.” I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, “kermit” and not to mention meat, that I have already worn. This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan. I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially i have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat. I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.
I’m starting to think that’s what she sees her wheelchair as: a museum pièce de résistance.
