Gaga for Lady Gaga!

Welcome to a new week everyone!  For those of you who had to work, take today off. Haha.  I was luckily able to find a sitter for my little girl and head to downtown Ft. Lauderdale.  My head and liver are still hurting.  Anyhow, over the weekend the Human Rights Campaign dinner took place in Washington D.C.  For those of you who have ever had a chance to speak to me, you know this is an important issue.  I do not put up with ignorance from anyone and feel these issues need to be addressed by someone. 

One of the most noted performances of the evening was Lady Gaga with her rendition of the classic John Lennon song "Imagine."  According to OMG!, "Gaga's version changed John's lyrics to reference Matthew Shepard, the 21-year-old college student whose tragic 1998 murder in Wyoming inspired government legislation against hate crimes which passed earlier this year."  Gaga herself has been surrounded by much controversy with people questioning her sexual orientation. Check out her performance in the video posted here.

 As you can tell from all of my blogs, I focus on controversy.  The world is boring without it, isn't it? ;-)    The National Equality March was set to take place the next day, to which OMG! added, "Gaga also addressed the crowds in a speech at the march's rally on Sunday, as did 'Sex and the City' star Cynthia Nixon, the cast of Broadway's 'Hair,' and Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. The rally was carried live on C-Span and cable channel Logo went dark in honor of the march."

To me, Lady Gaga is an amazing talent despite her eccentricities which can overshadow her abilities at times.  For anyone wanting to be a singer, take notes and realize that's what it takes.  Leadsinger Karaoke System
