Lady Who?

Apparently I slept through the Lady Gaga recruitment session, because I totally missed that phenomenon. I've yet to hop on the Crazy for LG Train; In fact, I've vehemently declared my aversion to all things Gaga. I don't get it. I don't get her. The headpieces leave me in a cloud of confusion and judgment. However (and this is a big "however"), thanks to Alexander Skarsgard in the Paparazzi video (hummena hummena), I've at least retired the g0-to "Lady Gaga is nuts" commentary. Apparently I'm very easily swayed. Throw in a hot, Swedish vampire and I'll go ga-ga (pun only slightly intended) for anything.

Fine, fine. I admit it; The music is catchy, and she may just be so "out there" that I respect her. I still don't get it, but she should be able to have her fun without my pithy commentary. And people love her. I mean, they luuuurv her. They are in fact coo coo for cocoa puffs, insane in the membrane, ga-ga for Gaga. So what I can't understand is...How can she be this ubiquitous pop entity, but
I can't even pick her out of a lineup? I have no idea what the Gaga looks like. I'm completely serious. If I ever see something loud and crazy with a Muppet muffler walking down a red carpet I just assume it's her. I mean, really? Do these look like they are all definitely the same person?

Am I the only one? Am I just missing some gene that distinguishes one costume from the next? I mean, I would have known that Michael Dorsey was Dorothy Michaels. Robin Williams never would have fooled me as Mrs. Doubtfire. I knew right off the bat that was Mike Meyers in Inglorious Basterds. I'm awesome at celebrity yearbook trivia.

Why is this so hard??
That's what she said...

I drank the Kool-Aid, so I love Gaga. I love the outlandish costumes, I love that she never looks the same, and I love the music.

I love that underneath it all, she has some serious talent. See her performance on SNL.

I love that she's a gay rights advocate. Anyone who wins an award and proclaims "This is for God and the gays" is alright by me!

I recently saw a Lady Gaga Takeover on Fuse (did not even know that channel existed) and I enjoyed the interviews with her about her music and her support of GLBT rights.

Faux bro! I'm actually growing to like her more, and I definitely love that she loves the gays :) I haven't really seen any of her interviews but now I'm going to have to! I'll keep you posted on my continuing Gaga Education.
