These are photos of Lady Gaga outside of the ABC studio of The View, where she was a guest panelist yesterday. She spent the whole hour with the ladies, which sounds pretty interesting. I’m trying not to give in to watching The View on any kind of regular basis, but if they continue to invite Lady Gaga on as the cokehead-version of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, I might have to start watching this junk. Anyway, the big news out of Gaga’s sit-down were her on-going thoughts on Amy Winehouse. She talked about Amy last week too, when she made Amy’s death all about GAGA. Guess what she did on The View? Yep. Gaga told the ladies that after Amy’s death:
“I am just so devastated and so sad and I really could not speak for 48 hours straight I was in such shock. I think the most unfortunate thing about it all is the way that the media spins things, like we can learn from Amy’s death. I don’t feel that Amy needed to learn any lessons. I felt that the lesson was for the world to be kinder to the superstar. Everybody was so hard on her, and everything that I knew about her was that she was the most lovely and nice and kind woman. You know, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t enjoy listening to someone sing sad songs about the blues and heartbreak and then not expect them to be truly heartbroken.”
Wait, what? Amy didn’t need to learn any lessons? We just needed to be nice to her and that would have made everything better? Ah, no. Amy was an alcoholic and addict who self-destructed over the course of years. She really could have used some lessons, but unfortunately for her, for us, for her family and her fans, she was never forced into a situation where she was anything but coddled, ignored or encouraged. But of course, Gaga isn’t really talking about Amy there. She’s talking about how she wants to be treated, and how no one is supposed to call her out on her drug and alcohol abuse. I swear, the part of the interview where Gaga talks about her drug use, it sounds like it’s coming from a Lohan:
Cokehead, please. STFU.
Here’s Gaga’s View performance of “You & I”. Um… this is the first time I’ve ever heard the song. Elton John much?
