Sorry Lady GaGa, but if you go to the game dressed like a two-bob trollop...

Some pop stars go to baseball in their underwear and are so surprised that the media is not just there but clicking away that they give them the finger:
Lady Gaga was so fed up with the photographers hounding her during a New York Mets game at Citi Field yesterday that she showed them the middle finger.

Apparently she didn’t take kindly to the prime seats she was given right behind home plate, and was caught on camera flipping off any onlookers while receiving a chorus of boos from the crowd. Not surprisingly, her random appearance drew the attention of New York fans, photographers and one confused bat boy, who all flocked to her premium seats near home plate...:

If she didn’t want to stand out in that crowd of T-shirt-wearing, baseball-capped fans, why in the world was she dressed in her “Telephone” costume? A metal-studded black leather bra and matching knickers are bound to be noticed, no matter who is wearing them.

Lady Gaga and her group relocated to Jerry Seinfeld’s luxury box later in the game, where she continued to give any onlookers two middle-finger salutes. If she wants to go unnoticed, maybe wearing pants would attract less attention. I have been to many baseball games and have managed to put ALL of my clothes on for every one of them.
But this is how Western culture now works. Such stupidity, such exhibitionism, such vulgarity, such barbarism - it’s all rewarded with attention (like this) and increased wealth. Unless more of us start laughing and stop buying.

Do your bit.

The harm done to other brands may yet help us:
Gaga was watching the New York Mets play the San Diego Padres at Citi Field in New York, when she flipped cameras the bird.

The singer happened to be sitting in Jerry Seinfeld’s VIP suite, and so The Mets issued an apology to the comedian.”We deeply regret that Jerry Seinfeld has been associated with this matter and have apologized to him,” the organisation said in a statement. “The use of Jerry Seinfeld’s suite was unauthorized and unknown to him at the time. We made a quick decision to place Lady Gaga and her group in a private suite because of issues related to her visit.”
America really is different. True, it’s actually the cutlrue which gave us Lady Gaga, yet at the same time it’s the culture which gives us media outfits that pixilate the extended middle digit, as you’ll see in the clip above.
