Last week at my old 'Home Away From Home'!!

We're not sure any torch was passed, but two generations of pop phenoms exchanged some admiration when Lady Gaga took in Britney Spears' Femme Fatale show Saturday night in Atlantic City.
Brit-Brit got the ball rolling from the stage by telling the crowd, "I have a very special guest tonight...Lady Gaga is here." Needless to say, the crowd went crazy.
But what did Mama Monster do in return?
Gaga, sitting up front in the floor section, stood and waved and a made a heart sign with her hands--and Britney hearted her right back. Awww, so cute.
Later, during "I Wanna Go," Gaga got on her feet and did a little fist-pumping. Clearly, she was enjoying herself as she double fisted drinks during the show.
During a break in the show, Gaga accidentally stole the show when the crowd started chanting her name and rushing over to snap pics.
Although she ducked out during the encore with security in tow to avoid the rush, her night wasn't over.
She was spotted hitting the blackjack tables at the Borgata Resort later that night.

T4P, Boomer. Gaga & Barney's teaming up is very exciting news.

The new video still looks interesting. I really am excited to see how the video will turn out. The concept sounds good:


The premise of the video is that I walked all the way from New York [to Nebraska] in this kind of almost wintry outfit to get to my man. So I’m walking down the highway and my feet are kind of bloody. There’s this fork in the road and it’s four different ways that I can go, but there’s lots of other things that can happen.

All sorts of strange things that occur and it has a lot to do with bridging my past and my future as an artist. Living halfway between reality and fantasy so there’s these sort of strange things that begin to occur in a barn in the middle of Springfield. ~ LG


Thanks for sharing, Teja.

You're welcome. I too love the last look, it's very reminiscent to her early 'The Fame' days where she added a dose of Gaga-ness to an already chic ensemble.

Blonde On Blonde: Lady Gaga Interviews Debbie Harry
Lady Gaga interviews Debbie Harry about her upcoming album, being an icon and that famous hair color.


By Lady Gaga


Debbie Harry: I'm just thinking about the first time we met. It was at Carnegie Hall.

Lady Gaga: I remember I was really nervous around you [laughs]. I listened to your new album, Panic of Girls [out September 13],and I love it, and I have some questions for you. After everything you've been through — so many albums, tours, the reality that you're the most iconic female in rock 'n' roll — what is the first thing that runs through your head when deciding the next album you want to write?

DH: I've never really done an album that's a set concept piece. It's a continuous thought process. Especially when I work with Chris [Stein, Blondie's cofounder], it automatically becomes encapsulated as a story from a particular time, but I guess it's not so easy to say that it is a concept piece. Mostly I want to reach out and share my experience.

LG: I love that answer, as I'm always obsessing with the concept. One of my favorite songs from your new album is "The End the End." My favorite lyric is "You're my one and only chance; let's walk before we dance." Is that about finding the person that you spend the rest of your life with, and is "the end" a representation of the end of life? I actually just put out a song called "The Edge of Glory" because I just had my first experience with death, but what does it mean for you?

DH: Yeah, I think you've nailed it. It is about having a long-term relationship. It is probably a romantic notion, but it's true that this is the relationship of your life. It carries on, and you're willing to stay to the end with this person.

LG: My other favorite, I think, is "Words in My Mouth." What inspired you to write this song?

DH: Somehow or other, I got hooked up with Shirley [Manson] from Garbage. I met her when she was a wee little girl, and we actually shared the same manager when she did Garbage.

LG: I am such a huge Garbage fan. When I was in middle school, I had a rotation of your albums and Garbage's albums. I used to put them in my Discman and walk around the block because my mom wouldn't let me walk more than one block by myself.

DH: That's so sweet. In any case, she told me that she was looking for a new song, so I wrote the song for her. They didn't use it in the end. So I did.

LG: It's hard to make records that you are happy with artistically and then be aware that you have a record label and it must be commercially sold. Tell me more about "China Shoes." I actually started to cry when I first heard it.

DH: You're an artist, and you're feeling things and giving them your own interpretation; we embrace it, and the emotion touches us, and then we apply it to our lives. I mean, even jokingly, you know how women feel about their shoes [laughs]. It becomes very important.

LG: It made me very, very emotional. It reminds me so much of my life, especially when you mention Brooklyn, because I live in Brooklyn. It reminds me of how sometimes I feel that moments in my life are interrupted because I'm so dedicated to my work. I often feel like my shoes are the only part of me that know what I'm doing all the time because they're always with me. There's this one pair of boots that I always wear, and sometimes when I'm so alone in my hotel room, I look at them and I think how they really are the only things in my life that know exactly what I've been through all day. So is that what the song was about, or was there a different meaning?

DH: I try to put a core of real sensitivity and make the words childish to just say simply, This person is going away, and I'm missing them very much. I'm not going to recover unless they come back soon, and I'm leaving this note in the back of a book because I know you're going to read it when you are traveling.

LG: That's so funny because I had a lover who was a writer, and I used to leave him notes in his book, so it meant a lot to me. I know it sounds so crazy that the lyric would fit perfectly to my life, but that song was just really beautiful.

DH: I'm loving it too, and we actually do it now in the show. I've seen one of your shows, actually. I went to the Garden. It was fantastic.

LG: Oh, you were at the Garden?Actually, it's probably best that I didn't know you were there because I would have been too nervous.

DH: I mean, that's an extensive show. That's a whole lot of work.

LG: I can't wait to see your show. I would say to all the readers that they should buy your album just based on the song "Le Bleu" alone. I just want to turn all the lights off and take a bubble bath and think about love.

DH: Ah, you take bubble baths!

LG: Sometimes [laughs].

DH:
I know your bubble dress.


LG: I would take a bubble bath in my bubble dress! Now, this is a more over-arching question, but are you aware of the tremendous effect you had on women when you dyed the underside of your blonde hair black? Because when I experiment with a different blonde, like I did that very yellow blonde and a teal blonde and a lavender blonde, I put a black root in because of you.

DH: I did it for practical purposes because I was always doing my own hair and I didn't think I could do the back. But I ended up really liking having the back be this sort of dark side of the moon. Because when I was in school, that was one of my nicknames: Moon. It seemed perfect, that here I was with the bright side of the moon and the dark side of the moon.

LG: Did that have anything to do with Pink Floyd?

DH: No [laughs]. Could have been; you know how things seep into our thinking.

LG: So are you aware of your legacy thus far? Do you have a perception of how the world views you?

DH: On my humble side, I feel like I'm an idea whose time had come, that it was inevitable. On my egotistical side, I know how stubborn and how committed I was to presenting an image--because I come from a time when women were less outspoken, and they had to follow along and not be as individual.

LG: So it's very personal for you. For me, you are the most legendary woman in rock. Your stamp on the universe opened a door for women, who now can create pop music that exists in a sort of rock sense. In that "I'm beautiful, but I'll kick your ***" kind of way.

DH: I can't really afford to walk around thinking that I was responsible for all of that. It would probably be too much for me. I'll just say that it was the only way that I could live with myself.

LG: Right, right.

DH: I mean, how do you do what you do? Because you're standing in a different kind of world and you're representing this physical world of girls in a new way. Not very many women have toyed with the idea of bringing out more of their animal nature in such a strong way and having a show physically.

LG: I have no perception of my public influence. I just know my fans. And I know what I want to create, and I know what I love, and I'm always terrified of not pushing myself forward. I don't really want to know or acknowledge or be aware of very much because I'm afraid that it will stop me.

DH: Yeah, you don't want to inhibit yourself.

LG: People ask me that question all the time, and I always sort of stare at them and don't really know what to say, so I thought I would put you on the spot!

DH: God knows where that comes from, but hold on to it desperately. It's the life force, and it's what makes you cook. It's like your food.

LG: How do you keep your voice in shape? Do you have a vocal regimen?

DH: Oh, yeah. I didn't always have one, and now I do. I work with a coach.

LG: Do you warm up every day?

DH: Oh, yeah. I have to warm up.

LG: Me too. Yeah, every day. But I'm not supposed to drink either. I do, but I'm not supposed to.

DH: Well, everybody's different. You have to find out what your balance is, and, you know, we all know when we're going to get ****ing toasted, right?

LG: Sometimes I'll tell my teacher, "I just want to let you know, I'm going to get very, very drunk in about five hours." He'll just say, "Make sure you drink lots of water for the next few days."

DH: The great trick of it all is water, water, water.

LG: So I was going to ask you, what is the song "Mother" about?

DH: "Mother" is about the club that was originally called Jackie 60. A lot of people went there, like Leigh Bowery. It was such an important part of my life — for entertainment, for joy, for friends, for distraction, for creativity. When it closed, I just felt so lost. I think the only time that I felt more lost was when Andy [Warhol] died, and it was just "Oh, my God. Wow. What do I do now?"

LG: The first three albums I made were all inspired by this one club in New York where we would all hang out and drink beer and spin heavy-metal records one night a week. Whenever I don't have time to go back to New York, I get this suffocating feeling, like the world is spinning way too fast and I need to go back. That sort of culture is not really alive anymore, and what makes you so brilliant is that you never really let it go. When I met you, you were Debbie Harry, you know? You weren't some new, modern version of yourself who had changed. I felt like I was meeting the woman I always looked up to. So thank you for inspiring me to make music and stay true to myself and always go back to that one club that gives me every source of inspiration that I could ever dream of [laughs]. I'm going to go scream now in the other room with all my friends about how I just got to talk to you for almost an hour.

DH: I'm inspired by you. I wanted you to know that because people have asked me repeatedly, "What do you think of Gaga?" One of the first times that question was asked, I thought for a minute and I said, "She encourages me."

I do think that they like each other as human beings but I wouldn't claim that Gaga cares much for Britney the performer especially not in her current state.

So exciting! Do I see Yuyi, the mermaid? So I guess they used the idea of a mermaid and operation that was originally supposed to be for the Edge of Glory video.
