Boob Tube: Oprah Goes Gaga

There's just no stopping Lady Gaga. (Thank Jesus.) Despite having to cancel three shows this week after passing out due to exhaustion and dehydration on Thursday night, Gaga still made her date with Oprah as planned on Friday. The fierce phenom performed a medley of songs ("Monster," "Bad Romance" and "Speechless") off of her new hit album, The Fame Monster and sat down for a chat with O afterwards.

Up for discussion? The singer's preference that folks to drop the "Lady" and just call her "Gaga," her secret ambition to be a foodie, and a heartfelt message to her beloved fans to be true to themselves. Gaga's segments on the show also featured the first ever behind-the-scenes look she's ever given the world backstage on tour, including a shot of her dressing room, which was filled with concept art and the reference boards she uses for inspiration while plotting world domination.The disaster in Haiti also came up in conversation, at which point Gaga announced that all proceeds from tickets and merchandise sold both at her concert and on her website on January 24th will be donated to the relief efforts in Haiti.

Gaga's performance culimated with the singer standing on top of a taxi cab in her trademark stilletos, beating in the windshield of the car with a spiked morningstar during "Bad Romance." If you missed the performance or the interview, you can watch both below:

Lesbo Cheap Thrill o' the Week: If you missed the return of Grey's Anatomy Thursday night, you were robbed of the best 15 seconds of lesbian eye candy I've seen since The Hell Word kicked the bucket last spring. Little Grey barged into Christina's bathroom, interrupting a hot and heavy shower makeout session between Callie and Arizona. Arizona was sort of pinning Callie's arm up over their heads. Swooooon. Please, God, let them have a real actual humpy scene this season. We've been good little lesbians. Don't we deserve that much?

...good in anything she's in. The Dead Girl was one of her best performances...along with Brittany Murphy and Marica Gay Harden.

They said she was also nominated for Muriel's Wedding and Little Miss Sunshine.  She would have deserved it for either one if you ask me.

Need a vacuum straw...

The only time I was able to get through Grey's was when I was trapped, for over a month---in a little country house---in the west Texas area---on a dairy farm--- with no other living thing around, (besides dairy cows) for 20 miles  A friend let me borrow the first two season (no cable), and I appreciated the gesture, and I was desperate enough to struggle in getting through most of the dramatic vacuum of monologues with the consistency of maple tree sap. 

I'm glad we're getting out there, but Grey's has been see sawing with this whole "lesbian thing" and really needs to either shit or get off the pot.  Like the story line is trapped in a turtle shell and we're all waiting for the little turtle's head to pop out..."did you see it! I think I saw it trying to come out! Ah...maybe next week..."  The straights can have that show...seriously. 

In my personal opinion, of course. 

Not2Taem's picture

Ohh...Live...EeHa!

Dear sweet Olivia,

What do you do when not trapped on a farm? I do hope it has something to do with creative imagery. Such talent should not be wasted.

Laughing out loud

Olivia Mistelle Maxell's picture

I....

...make breakfast, put lunches in a batman lunch box, say "no and stop that! do your homework, make sure you wipe properly, so you don't itch your butt all day at school."-- video my dog, Einstein aka Little Fucker, masturbating and upload it on youtube b/c I'm a sick individual like that...and I write about things like being trapped on a farm and zumba instructors growling at my vagina on my site http://fallingfromtrains.com.  

I'm a single mom and try my best to write as much as possible whether it be, poems, screenplays or "blogs". 

I left no mystery...

It reflects more in my poetry manuscript. 

Thank you for reading and the compliment--:)

MacLass_19's picture

Hah...

Exactly. Have you ever felt that the network is using our sexual deliciousness to keep the bored hetero housewives watching, waiting, and wanting more? I'm afraid the semi-lezzie's will never do the deed on Grey's, unless of course, it's a cliff hanger at the end of a very drab season...

[edit to add]  To me, semi-lezzie's, are those characters that the network's love to tease us with. But they never go too far, as to not disturb the sensitive [homophobic] viewers...  

Olivia Mistelle Maxell's picture

ugh

The L Word, minus the masturbating-against-wall-Bette in  "jail"  episode of season 1, and most of season 6...was the only thing we had with substance. Well, we had sad stories like "boys don't cry" but who the hell wants to watch that twice? I'd rather give myself a really painful paper cut with cardboard than actually sit through that again. That movie was like a typical week in my hometown. You walk away going, "gawd damn another one of us got killed in another brutal horrific way. (Just had a gay 20-year old boy burned to death while trapped in his vehicle the other night here in my town). 

Movies/shows of substance that depict us in a less generic, campy, stereotypical way. Maybe have one when a gay doesn't die, but fights back!  We desperately search through all these channels to find something to grab on in hopes of intentify with and we get a two female heads in a shower going..."ohhhh you caught us having lesbian wet sex...or did you?"--and we got Logo...I mean?  I do like Desperate Housewives, though.....Smile That was off the subject but it's about to come on and I just remembered. 

Not2Taem's picture

Yes!

One strong queer female character who does not die physically, or mentally. Just once, let her kick the world in the bigoted ball and come out whole on the other side.

Not2Taem's picture

Users, one and all!

And yet, we lean in  like old hens round the knitting/gossip circle as gentle Julia serves up the weekly blow by blow.

Julia Watson's picture

Gentle?!

Gentle?!

Actually, geeky came to mind first, but I wanted a /j/, so I went with gentle, hoping your feisty self would come back.

Dissenting opinions are

Dissenting opinions are always welcome here in the Boob Tube nation. I am of the pitiful, lesbian crumb-grabbing kind, so I can totally appreciate where you're coming from on this one. The overwhelming self-righteousness of the characters and whiney monologues haven't yet chased me off, although most of last season and the one before it very nearly did. I'm so invested in the bedamned characters, though, that I can't give up the ghost on this one. (Although thank JESUS Izzie did. Dang.)

Who else plans to watch the Golden Globes tonight?  Who would be up for chatting about it on here?  We could talk smack about the outfits on the red carpet.  

Right now I'm watching "Holmes on Homes".  I love what Mike does but I wish he wouldn't have replaced these folks' black tile with a boring beige.

Me! I'm having some friends from my MFA program over to watch the whole shibbang tonight, from red carpet to closing credits. Poor CT will be relegated up to my office to watch her playoff foozball games.

It's a good thing Minnie called me.  I didn't realize what time it was and nearly didn't tune in on time.  Missed all the red carpet fun.  And I am so unprepared!  No bottle of wine to drink while I watch.  

Except the Two Hands Shiraz.  But that will only be opened under very special circumstances. Wink

Poor beleaguered CT. How ever will you make it up to her?  Wink
