Lady Gaga’s “You and I” Video Is Too Trippy for Me

Last night, I got a headache, so I took a couple aspirin. Then, a couple hours later, I got a tummy ache, so I took some Pepto-Bismol. A few hours after THAT, I took some Benadryl because I was itchy and stuffy from allergies. Just a few hours later, my BFF called to see if my boyfriend and I wanted to go get some happy meals. So what I’m trying to say is that I’ve had a real loopy day.

And then, in what felt like a cruel, directed attack on my senses, Lady Gaga decided that today was the day to post her new music video, featuring mermaids, Gaga in drag, Gaga in minimal makeup, and what I can only interpret as some creepy human robot who has no right being seen by me in this state. Needless to say, I didn’t love it.

What about you guys?

Lady Gaga Hugs a Fan

This just in: people are nuts. Here’s a video of Lady Gaga trying to graciously maneuver through a crowd of fans and paparazzi. Yeesh. I don’t envy that kid’s career choice for one second.

The real pudding comes in the second half, when Gaga pauses to hug a hysterical, weepy fan. It’s kind of a creepily long embrace, too. (“It was on my bucket list to meet you!” the fan wails. Aww!)

Quotables: Lady Gaga’s Shoes Are Her Only Friends

“I often feel like my shoes are the only part of me that know what I’m doing all the time because they’re always with me. There’s this one pair of boots that I always wear, and sometimes when I’m so alone in my hotel room, I look at them and I think how they really are the only things in my life that know exactly what I’ve been through all day.”

- Lady Gaga doing what she does best: talking out of her crazy ass head.

Truthfully, this is the first time that I’ve ever really felt bad for Lady Gaga. When we found out that she might use Rogaine, I was like “eh, she has money for good wigs.” When she started spewing out so much pretentiousness that it became obvious that there’s probably a little something off in her crazy ol’ head, I was just incredibly irritated. But now that she’s gone and revealed that she doesn’t have anybody as close to her as her shoes? That’s just plain heartbreaking.

Love It or Leave It: The Cover of Lady Gaga’s Latest Single

Did you honestly think I was going to let an entire weekend pass without talking any smack at all about Lady Gaga? Were you born yesterday?

This is the cover for “You and I,” Gaga’s latest single. If you’re not familiar with that handsome fella pictured, that’s Jo Calderone, her male alter ego, and he is looking rough. Like, severely rough. Like I want to get this man a physical, stat, because something is not right with him. Probably it’s the whack attack inside him.

What are your thoughts, pals?

Who’s Excited for Lady Gaga by Terry Richardson?

Have you heard about this book? It’s a book of photographs, 350 photographs, to be exact, that Terry Richardson took of Lady Gaga during a magical period in which he followed that crazy bitch around for ten whole months. Are you interested? Well, then let’s let the Lady herself give you a more solid synopsis:

“I didn’t hold anything back from Terry. He was with me every minute, every moment,” Gaga said. “He has photographs of me waking up in the morning, brushing my teeth, in the bathroom, in the bathtub. And the thing about Terry, if you know anything about his photography, is that nothing is staged.”

“What I love so much about Terry is that he thinks everything is so beautiful. I’m always, ‘Oh Terry, get out of here,’ and he’s like, ‘Oh, it’s so beautiful, let me just shoot it,’” she added. “I felt so comfortable with Terry. I love him so much. He’s a really close friend, and I feel honored that he traveled with me.”

“My favorite thing, honestly, is that he loved the fans. He shot the fans the same way he shot me: with no pretense. No ‘Well, she’s put out records and they haven’t.’ None of that. The music was all of ours,” she said. “He would come backstage and he would say, ‘Oh my God, the fans!’ And I’d say, ‘I know what you just photographed.’ And he’d say, ‘Baby, wow!’ And then he’d film me, like, peeing in a cup and, like, ridiculous things.”

Here’s a thought I never thought I’d think: “Wow, it might be kind of neat to see Lady Gaga pee in a cup.” But you know what? I thought it. I kind of love Terry Richardson, that fabulous, fabulous man, and if he followed Gaga around for ten months? I’m sure he shot something that will change the world.

Are any of you guys planning on picking up the book?

Love It or Leave It: Lady Gaga Looks Sensible?

I know, I know, what a crazy notion, that Lady Gaga actually has some some sort of sense. But with this outfit I think that she might. I think the shoes actually look a little all right, you know, like they don’t have penises on them and they don’t look like they might kill her at any given moment like her shoes usually do. And, uh, the dress isn’t made of flesh? I don’t know, have I said enough positive things yet?

I think I have, so it’s time to get real. Because I know that I’m sensitive about David Bowie, I’m well aware of that, but Gaga’s lack of eyebrows, or rather the makeup covering her eyebrows? Is that a blatant Bowie ripoff, or have I just missed all the musical artists throughout the years that have done such a thing? See, I’m ready to listen before I go off on a rant about how Lady Gaga needs to back up before she tries to come anywhere close to the magic of Bowie. So let’s help each other.

Quotables: “Don’t Kill the Superstar.”

“It’s really devastating and I think it’s a lesson to the world – don’t kill the superstar. Take care of her. Take care of her soul. I loved her and I just remember feeling like I wasn’t alone because she was so different and she was so special.”

That’d be Lady Gaga on the death of Amy Winehouse.

While I totally dig the “take care of your brethren” thing that she’s trying to get across here, she also sort of makes it seem like the general public is responsible for other people’s actions as a whole, and you just know that can’t be right. Plus, the entire putting the “superstar” on a pedestal thing? Come on. “Superstars” are just like everyone else – they’ve just had a different set of circumstances or opportunities presented to them. Let’s maybe stop doing that and the same “superstars” will stop feigning invincibility.

RIP Amy Winehouse. I miss you, girl.

And Gaga? Just … I don’t even know anymore.
