Happy Birthday Lady Gaga!
On March 28, 1986, she who would become the last of the Nazirites was born. Can you believe she's only 26? She seems older somehow... Halfway through her twenties and she's already conquered the world.
Anyway, so what do you give someone like her on her birthday? I know we aren't friends and only psychotic fans (which I'm not, just FYI) pretend that they actually know their idols. Kind of wish I was gay right now because I would totally come out on her birthday as a tribute if I could! Oh well, guess that's not really an option. Plan B - as far as I know, the only thing she loves nearly as much as the gays are her adoring fans. So for her birthday I will try and win her some more fans. Or at the very least turn some nominal fans into adoring fans.
Once upon a time, I thought of Lady Gaga as a pop star with some catchy
songs. Here is one of the performances that opened my eyes to the fact
that she was sooo much more. When she sat down at that piano in that ridiculous dress made of orbiting rings and started playing
it was transcendent and amazing! Anyone can do a medley of their hits,
but that freestyle busking bit about her life growing up in NYC was
something else entirely. Show me another major pop star that could do
this, if you can. In this performance she just shocked me with her
talent. I could never look at her as "just another pop star" again.

That was just sweet and beautiful and weird and ridiculous and astounding. That was a pretty fun episode of SNL for Lady Gaga btw. She not only gave that amazing performance, she also got to wrestle Madonna and tried to make out with Andy Samberg while both of them were wearing bubble dresses. She also dropped a s-bomb on live TV when she performed Paparazzi. I actually really like this version, it's just a few tiny changes but it makes a difference. Also she looked flipping fantastic performing it!
