Ga Ga for Gaga

I love a lot of things in life. Wizards, the Beatles, Paul, my family, the Disney Channel, Radiohead, white wine, glow sticks, get the point. Very recently, I have added one more item to this list. I must say, she was an unexpected addition and I pushed very hard against her when I first became aware of her, but the more I listen, the more I watch, and the more I am exposed to her, I am becoming a pretty devoted fan. Maybe it's an attempt to justify the $200 I spent back in May on the concert ticket for tonight, maybe it's the fact that I get to wear a ton of make up and sequins to her show and dance my ass off with lots of glow sticks and weirdos, or maybe it's just that I have finally found a pop star that I can truly love again...something I don't think I've experienced since MJ circa the Dangerous album. Whatever it is, or whatever it isn't, I am admitting to the world that I am a full-blown, all out, dressing up for her concert and making themed cocktails for the pre-party, Lady Gaga fan.

I truly believe she is a new kind of celebrity. In the past several months I have scene or heard or talked about at least one thing about her everyday. She is a performer on and off the stage. She is always coming up with exciting ways to either offend or enthrall her audience, and she never stops. Ever. Truth be told, my devotion was solidified just this morning when I read that she had stopped in OKC before her show to visit with a young handicapped girl who wanted to meet her. She is arguably the most famous person in the world right now, and she still makes time for people like that. It is truly amazing. I love her music. I love her clothes. And, most of all, I love her message. And, I can't wait to see her tonight in all of her weirdo glory.

Let's Play a Love Game,
