Lady Gaga begs for attention with Ritz cracker hat

fp_3210844_barm_lady_gaga_062909

I’m still trying to figure out if I love or hate Lady Gaga. I know it is absolutely one or the other without any chance of an in between. But I have a lot of arguments either way. First, she’s quirky. And considering how much generic bubble-gum pop is out there, isn’t being a little off kilter sort of nice? She’s not some fake boobed fake orange tanned nitwit. On the other hand, you could easily say she’s just indulging ridiculous affectations in an attempt to seem strange and cutting edge. And she’s clearly trying way too hard – don’t tell me she rolls out of bed, spends 10 minutes figuring out her outfit, then just goes for it.

Yesterday Lady Gaga pranced around Manchester, England in a giant Ritz cracker. Made out of hair. Now when I find a hair on my Ritz, I get damn annoyed because I have to toss out a perfectly good cracker. Especially if I’ve already given it some nice peanut butter or what have you. Wasteful. Lady Gaga, clearly being more thrifty and less uptight than I am, grabs a bobby pin or two (and probably some Gorilla Glue) and plants that sucker on her head in an attempt to shill for Nabisco.

Lady GaGa sang to tens of thousands at Glastonbury over the weekend – and yesterday she showed she had other artistic talents.

The OTT American singer dropped in to help decorate a charity garden, and wore her most outrageous hairpiece yet.

As she painted away at Body Positive North West in Manchester, it looked as though she’d stolen one of the palettes and stuck it on her head.

But the wacky wardrobe went down a storm with workers at the HIV charity she was supporting.

She made her mark by dawbing the message ‘Love + Art + Kindness’ on to a picture of a herself on a wall as excited volunteers looked on.

Her visit to the charity was organised by Orange RockCorps, which gives people a chance to earn tickets to gigs in exchange for four hours voluntary work.

The Daily Mail pointed out that the Ritz did keep the sun out of her face – and since I make a big deal out of being pro-sun protection, I feel like I can’t criticize this ridiculousness. It’s a rather absurd argument, but honestly what bothers me about Lady Gaga is how wasteful her crazy outfits are. I realize you hardly ever see celebrities wearing the same thing twice. But she’s got some new extreme ridiculousness every single day. What happens to the Ritz when she’s done with it – does it go to charity? End up tossed in the waste basket? I keep hearing how these are lean economic times –how lean can they be when Lady Gaga has multiple unusually shaped hair pieces?

I think I’m leaning towards liking her, despite myself. Even though she refers to inanimate objects by randomly assigned gender and her headwear makes me crave carbs… she’s not Paris Hilton, and for that, I give her credit.

    I love her, I don’t care. She just does her own thing.

  2. HEB says:

    Its a button. DUH.

    I like her, and yes its true that she doesn’t roll out of bed and go with it–she plans out the art in every aspect of her life, I think it must be exhausting.

  3. PJ says:

    Gaga is pathetic and non-talented. She’ll be over in a year

  4. Trillion says:

    I’ve done an almost complete turnaround on Lady Gaga. I formerly couldn’t stand her and thought she was a complete phony. I do still think she’s partially phony and don’t buy her “eccentric artist” image that she’s pushing with such effort. However, I bought a few songs on iTunes and really listened to them. (this means a bong and headphones were involved) I’ve since concluded that in spite of her overt theatrics, she is musician’s musician and not just another over-sexed, over stylized front person. I could see her having some staying power and making a lot of records that show progression and variety.

    In a world of Parises and Lohans, I’m glad for her.

  6. I totally identify. She is original. When was the last time you had that to say about someone? Plus, what makes me like her is how apprecitive she is for her fame and how damn hard she works for it. She doesn’t take her success for granted like the Cheetoling or HighLo…..you see her sweat equity in every performance she does. The fireworks bra has been my fav outfit to date! Awesomeness!

  7. Tazina says:

    Can’t you see the four holes on top? It’s a BUTTON, not a Ritz cracker.

  8. gooniegirl says:

    I saw her on the Ellen Degeneres show and the girl can play the piano! So she’s musically talented and she was very polite and kind in her interview.

    For those reasons, I like her. What she wears and how bizarre she looks makes no difference to me as long as she’s a good person!

  9. Samantha says:

    Looks more like a button to me. Maybe she is trying to be more close-minded? Get it? Because her hair is buttoned…

    C’mon, climb aboard the crazy train. Its insanely fun.

  10. Samantha says:

    Oh, I should have said “Clothes minded”….darn it, what a waste.

  11. meeps says:

    ah trillion, you “really listen” to music the same way I do!

  12. JayBird says:

    I think it probably is a button Samantha. The Daily Mail called it a painting pallet, several sites compared it to a UFO (really creative), and lots of frisbees. I’m still going with hairy Ritz.

    I’ve decided I do indeed like her. As I said, sometimes I think it’s a little too obvious that she’s TRYING to be quirky, but think about the stupid things most celebrities do when they want attention. At least Lady Gaga is trying to get some for being creative and strange, instead of drunk and boring like everyone else.

  13. Marie says:

    When I saw that picture I was like: WTF?? This s**it reminded me of something…
    and I didn’t know what then I saw the title.. RITZ CRACKER!! LOL
    You can see that it is a button but ritz craker was the best way to define that thing!!

  14. bored says:

    I think she’s fresh and fun… hope ‘the fame’ doesn’t chew her up and spit her out… ha ha.

  15. Ron says:

    It’s so hard to keep that 15 minutes going when big, talented celebs keep dying….

  16. BlueSkies says:

    Have you seen her original face and that nose? Google plastic surgery.

  17. Meg says:

    She looks cute when she smiles.

  18. Valensi says:

    Not to be crass, but I always assumed that she dressed eccentrically to divert attention away from her face, which, coincidentally, is not very attractive. At all.

  19. gg says:

    I think she’d be really cute without the hats, but she’s damn good.

    She does wear her stuff over and over. I’ve seen that hairhat before. I think she recycles the crazy stuff far too often actually. It’s less fun if you see somebody’s brand new video, yet you’ve seen every one of the crazy outfits several times the month before walking around on the street. She needs a better street look, imo.

    LOL at trillion.

  20. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    She wears the weird sh1t to divert attention from the fact that ‘she’ is a man.

    Music is passable. Person is loathsome and try-hardy.

  21. Hieronymus Grex says:

    To all of Gaga’s camp followers: Madonna did it first and did it better. GTFO her.

  22. Lway says:

    :) ya’ll make me laugh! Some good comments :)

    Lady GaGa looks like a big CHOP walking around with an oversized button on her head.

    Jaybird – Loved your comment “Now when I find a hair on my Ritz, I get damn annoyed because I have to toss out a perfectly good cracker”

    LOL – Good One!

  23. gg says:

    She’s obviously not a man. I can always tell.

  24. I LOVE THA WAY LADY GA GA IS WEARING THE HAIR BUTTON THAT I MADE FOR HER!!!!!!! YES THAT’S RIGHT!! LADY GA GAS HAIR BUTTON WAS MADE BY WEAVEN STEVEN!!!! SHE ROCKS!!!!!!
