She's a lady, whoa, whoa, whoa

Edit: When I stopped over to Dirk Mancuso's place today I saw he had a post about Lady Gaga and her American Idol performance. I had forgotten I'd saved this post as a draft and never posted it until I saw his. Dirk's is better because he's got the video so head on over there. I'm too lazy today to put the vid on mine, not feeling too well.

Here's my forgotten post.

Who is this Lady Gaga? It seems like she's just burst on the scene. I started seeing her in Star magazine several months ago. Yes, I subscribe to that supermarket rag, it's my cheap entertainment plus I love the crossword puzzle.

I'd never heard her sing and wasn't sure I wanted to. Her look is over the top with the blond wigs, costumes and make up. Sometimes with all that glitz singers really can't sing. She reminds me of a cleaned up, blond Amy Winehouse. Then came my chance to hear her on American Idol. To my somewhat surprise I thought she was pretty talented. She sang Poker Face and I enjoyed the piano playing as well as her singing. Edit: Last night on Dancing with the Stars Melissa and Tony danced the Paso Doble to that song. Lady Gaga also reminds me of the drag queens in Provincetown on Cape Cod. I looked closely and she's very pretty. But the zippered eye patch was just weird. It reminded me of a picture I've had hanging around on my computer for a while that I didn't know what to do with.

This must be a long lost relative of eye patch.
