Lady Gaga “You and I” – PITTSBURGH Version!

30 Aug

“There’s only 3 men that I’ll serve my whole life – it’s my Daddy and Pittsburgh and Jesus Christ!……So put your drinks up for Pittsburgh……Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh I love ya! Pittsburgh, I’d rather die without you…and I…” ~ Lady GaGa

I am a “Little Monster” — that is, a Lady Gaga fan. That being said, she got on my nerves BIG TIME by doing the Jo Calderone alter ego ALL NIGHT at the 2011 MTV VMAs (not to mention “Jo” stealing my girl BRITNEY’s spotlight during her lifetime achievement award….)

Anyway, despite my slight annoyance at this obnoxious character (please stop, Gaga. Please…)  this song almost makes up for it! It’s pretty sweet. Naturally, she did it for a handful of cities across the country,  BUT, it’s pretty cool that she chose Pittsburgh as one of them. According to the 96.1 KISS fm Freak Show page, Gaga is a fan of Pittsburgh because 96.1 KISS has broke a few of her singles — and, they were one of the few stations that she called in to when she dropped this one.

Enjoy – she makes quite a few references to Pittsburgh & Pittsburgh guys! Kinda cool.

 

Lady GaGa: You Either Love Her or Hate Her…I Love Her. Check out her new video here

5 Mar

Lady Gaga is a walking set of contradictions – and I LOVE it, because, after all , so are so many of us. Her well-rounded character makes her, well, as close to human as Lady Gaga can be.

She is deeply religious but also does and says so many things that blatantly go against her faith – after all, she’s imperfect like the rest of us…..and God makes no mistakes! She has been called a Madonna and Grace Jones  copycat, however, in many aspects of her life and her career, she is boldly original and often oddly unique. She understands the fame game and is both defined by it yet also the definition of it. She often practices celibacy while having music videos that are oft racy and sexed-up. More than just a “pop tart” like many of her counterparts are, Lady Gaga is deep, and very intelligent. Both shamelessly living her life in public and sharing her thoughts with the world, she’s also intensely introverted and private. She lives for her fans and the “character” of Lady Gaga isn’t a character or a facade at all – it’s just her. And I love every awkward bit of it

Nothing if not intriguing, Lady Gaga has sparked many a debate, and is one of those polarizing figures who you either love or hate. I love her, and the fact that I was both  appalled and amazed by her new video proves why. More than just a singer, Gaga is truly a creative mind and a real performance artist. If nothing else, she’s someone who knows how to keep us talking about her!

Feast your eyes, Little Monsters …. ‘cuz she was Born This Way:

Gagaloo Update: Ms. Gaga will perform 2nd show in Pittsburgh… in FEBRUARY 2011; XTina in August 2010.

10 May

Attention Lady Gaga fans: yesterday’s blog post was accurate: my suspicions were confirmed this morning. Lady Gaga will be adding a 2nd Pittsburgh show to her Monster Ball tour. She’ll be swinging by Pittsburgh again in February, 2011. Tickets go on sale THIS FRIDAY, May 14th, 2010. Her September 5th show is already sold out — and sold out in under one minute — so if you’re attempting to get tickets this week, be prepared – for you’ve been forewarned. (Just a sidenote: 96.1 KISS fm will also be giving away tickets all week long, so you can also tune in to them for your chance, as well. Gaga’s camp certainly isn’t giving us fans much of a chance to prepare to have to spring for a ticket! I mean, what’s the rush? The 2nd show’s like 9 months away! Sheesh!)

Additionally, today Christina Aguilera also confirmed her tour dates for her Bionic tour. It turns out that the Wexford gal will be performing at Pittsburgh’s First Niagra Pavilion on August 3rd, 2010. Tickets for her show will go on sale May 21st and will surely be (sorry XTina) in lesser demand than Gaga’s.
