There’s just no stopping Lady 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?
