Lady Gaga spawn

Can you guess who is shown in this picture? I couldn’t. It turns out that it’s Lady Gaga herself, in the flesh, so to speak. She looks so… well, I admit it. Words fail me.

Lady Gaga, you have inspired me to spawn a new word.

gagaish – to look as crazed as Lady Gaga

In the picture Lady Gaga is speaking out against DADT so I have to give her props for that.

Here are a couple of YouTube videos showing vintage Gaga that you may not have seen. The latter video proves that she had a bit of celebrity attitude even before she was a big star.


Rap Sheet: Joaquin will rise again Phoenix

Game over, man. The cat is out of the bag. We now know that the Joaquin Phoenix rapper thing – the whole thing – and the movie I’m Still Here was a “hoax.” Remember Joaquin’s appearance on the David Letterman show? Letterman wasn’t in on it. Ouchies!

Twitter guru Roger Ebert has all of the fascinating details. According to Ebert the movie should be considered a work of fiction which means that Phoenix could be eligible for an Academy Award nomination. (Assuming, of course, that his performance so dictates.)

I haven’t seen the movie but my wife and I both like Joaquin so we’ll probably check it out.

Why do I get the feeling that this movie was born of an idea discussed over drinks where someone said, “You know what would be funny? Pretend that Joaquin drops out of acting to become a rapper. That would be hilarious! Then we could make a documentary about it.”

Someone else then presumably said, “I agree! That is one hella of a good idea!”

“Let’s do it!”


One thing is certain. I have little doubt that Andy Kaufman would have loved it. A lot.
