Lady Gaga gifted a box of Oreos to her dad for Father’s Day this year

Lady Gaga returns to her hotel after performing at the Apollo theater

My dad passed away nearly nine years ago. I tried not to think about him on Father’s Day and I tried to ignore all of the Father’s Day stuff in general, but this story crept up on me, probably because it’s kind of funny and I related to it. I was horrible at gift-giving for my dad – he had a lot of interests, but there are only so many World War II books you can give your father, you know? So I ended up buying him dumb stuff he didn’t need for his birthdays and Father’s Day and Christmas. He would rarely use what I gave him, the one exception being the time I got him some locally-made ceramic bowls from a farmer’s market. He f–king loved those. Everything else was just put on the bookshelf and never read or opened. Lady Gaga must be like me – she never knows what to get her father. So she ended up getting him something small, something she knew he would like: Oreos.

Multimillionaire Lady Gaga sent her father a box of Oreos for Father’s Day, he revealed Monday. Although the star is said to be worth $275 million, restaurateur Joe Germanotta seemed perfectly happy with the cookie gift — which usually costs about $4 for a box.

He told FOX Business’s Dagen McDowell: “My daughter Stefani, you know, aka Lady Gaga, she sent me a box of Oreos. It was a great day.”

As he prepares to ready his uptown Manhattan restaurant Joanna Trattoria for New York City’s return to outdoor dining, Germanotta said he spent the day working. But he said his second daughter, fashion designer Natali Germanotta, planned to take him on a “long bike ride” to celebrate the holiday.

Maybe this is a coronavirus-specific thing? Like a lockdown thing, and Gaga is in California and she couldn’t be with her dad on Father’s Day so she sent him Oreos? I went through a phase for like 15 years where I never touched Oreos, but then I tried the golden Oreos and those really hit differently, right? So do the Oreo Thins, it’s like a completely different taste with less of the cream filling. While I can still go months without touching Oreos, every now and then I do get in the mood for some. Maybe Joe is the same way.

    I hope they were double stuffed pun intended.

    I was never that big of an oreo fan until I tried the pistachio thin ones, and my god they were SO good. I bought a bag of the dark chocolate ones the other day on a whim, and they aren’t really what I was expecting. They kind of taste like brownie batter in a way, and they’re a lot messier. But I enjoyed those as well.

    I’m willing to bet that papa Gaga rarely wants for anything – with both daughters careers, I think they’re probably well set up with the things they want or need. I think the oreo gift is cute, and while I’m sure she could have gotten him something more impressive, she probably knows her audience pretty well too.

    I’m sorry you lost your father, Kaiser.

    But this made me laugh:
    “ there are only so many World War II books you can give your father, you know? “

    Yes, yes I do know.

    I did the same as GaGa, I bought him a couple of bags of his favourite candy.

      I always bought my Dad WWII books and then started getting specific with Battle of the Bulge(his big battle)books. I did it through Christmas 2008. Dad passed away on January 20, 2009, shortly after calling his four daughters and all his grandchildren to remind them to watch the inauguration. Like I would’ve missed it!! But I did miss it. One of my sisters called just as it was starting. I left work, threw some clothes and my dogs in the car and drove 600 miles as fast as I could. I have most of those books now.

    My father would have been thrilled with a box of Oreos. He was on a pureed diet for the last few y ears of his life due to Parkinson’s and he would get up in the middle of the night to steal Oreos.

    I get my dad red vines. He has interests that I could make gifts out of but he also voted for trump so a $10 tub of red vines is good enough.

    Oreos are vegan, so it’s a thumbs up from me.

    • Jerusha says:

      Good to hear. I have a package of pistachio thins, chocolate creme, and lemon creme, but I haven’t opened them yet.

      • bettyrose says:

        TBH, when I first found that out, I was like “wtf are oreos made with if not animal fat?” They’re the proof that vegan doesn’t always equal plant based (it’s a lot of artificial ingredients), but dayum good and guilt free by that measure (if not by calorie standards, LOL).

    I’ll share my Father’s Day gift story. My three oldest step children, all college age, have been staying with us through quarantine. To say that they have an incredibly privileged life would be an understatement. My husband pays all of their college related expenses and gives them a quarterly living stipend. He has also been a very caring and involved parent. The Saturday before Father’s Day, I asked them if they had bothered to get their Dad anything as a gift. They had not. I didn’t want my husband to have nothing to open from his older children, so I gave them my credit card and a list of fishing equipment that he would like from Bass Pro Shop. I made sure they had their masks and sent them on their way. Not half an hour later, I received a call from AMEX asking if I was authorizing a charge for $14k for an off road vehicle at Bass Pro. I was livid. Not only had they not gotten him a gift, they tried to charge something insanely expensive to my card. They spend their Father’s Day moving their things out of our house and back in with their Mother. Maybe not a gift for him, but certainly for me!

      Ugh. I hope your step kids evolve emotionally at some point.

    • Erinn says:

      Wowwwwwww. If you’d like you can adopt me (I’m 30, and well-trained lol), and I’ll kick their butts. I can’t even IMAGINE.
