Lady Gaga

It was world-class pandemonium on 53rd Street, right up there with the visits by Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Paris Hilton, and Ben Bernanke.

Fans waiting for her arrival.  The street was closed to non-Gaga traffic.

Even without seeing her face, it's not hard to find the outrageous pop star.

Pictures only tell part of the story.  Here's a video that gives you a taste of the noise as she patiently went down the line signing autographs and posing for pictures.

Goodbye, Lady Gaga!  You've shattered our comfortable bourgeois assumptions about how to get into an SUV!


  1. And yet, the gum stares on, stoic, unmoved, above it all.

    BTW I think of her as Lady Gag Me. But that's just me.

    That may be Gaga, but that video is pure Dada. I swear to God, that should win some kind of an award... BEST...EPISODE...EVER! ;)

  3. The director's cut of the video is 32 seconds. I trimmed it down to make it more commercial.
