Always & forever, many repeated thanks to Getting Through Anxiety & The Melodramatic Confessions of Carla Louise for creating this fantastic monthly challenge!
August 12th is a “Band/Singer that starts with the letter ‘L.'” I’d like to say that this one took some time & careful consideration, but I’m a terrible liar. I knew at the beginning of the month that August 12th would be “Lady Gaga.”
OK, granted, she’s a bit of an odd duck, but, c’mon! What performer/famous person isn’t at least a little weird! I also have a theory (which is probably 100% wrong, but what the heck) that she might have wanted to avoid being a stereotypically attractive pop singer, so she does some weird stuff to detract from her looks.
All that postulating, hemming & hawing, & theorizing aside, I got to see Lady Gaga in concert. Not only did I get to see the Lady who calls for self-love worldwide herself, but I got to see her perform with the legendary Tony Bennett!! She had a bit of a sore throat (we could tell), but she was still on point the whole time.
There were literal chills throughout the performance. I then spent over $100 on souvenirs I could buy online for 1/3 the price, but I had to commemorate the experience (& bring a DVD back home for Dad).
So, who did I miss by picking Lady Gaga without considering anyone else? Do you have any thoughts on her antics?
