BTW saw Perez Hilton on the plane yesterday and although I'm not a fan or anything it was tempting to get a picture with him. My own internal "fame monster" clamored for me to do it but I resisted. Is it right to take a picture with someone whose business practice you loathe just to borrow some of their fame for a second? I don't think so. On the other hand, he was flying coach which tells me that even he doesn't think he's that precious - which actually was a point in his favor. Still, remembering what he did to Dustin Lance Black this past summer and how he's postured himself to be a spokesperson for the community, no I'll pass.
As for the Gaga concert at the Bell Center, well, even though the show itself is entertaining (great songs, great costumes - love the Alien headdress and the machine gun hat is nothing short of brilliant - and some cool-nerdy choreography) but it is still in a bit of rough shape and it might be why she's not letting press review the her til after the third show this Sunday in Ottawa...although the Montreal press simply bought a ticket and reviewed it anyway. I dig her and as I've kinda gotten into her like most guys my age have 'gotten into' Madonna, I was just glad to be there. She can sing, she plays the piano, she's clearly got some great ideas and she's got quite a bit of an edge (did I mention the machine gun hat?) Anyway, by the time she makes it to NYC, the show should be flawless.
I will leave you all with this thought though: this Gaga chick has managed to take classic drag and mix it with circuit party music from the 90s and has brought it and sold it to straight women. Seriously I looked up at one point and thought - is this the Red Party or the Imperial Court? Why am I still wearing my shirt? Where is my X? :)
Anyway, this Wizard of Oz video is making the rounds today even though it was posted two and a half years ago.. it answers the question "what if the Wizard of Oz was made today, what would the trailer be like?" It's not quite as brilliant as my all time favorite of this general type of genre, the infamous "Scary Mary" trailer but it's still pretty good.
Have a great Saturday night everyone!
