Lady Gaga gives the finger to Citi Field crowd

Jun 10, 2010, 10:54 PM EDT

gaga finger.jpgAssuming there are few Lada Gaga fans among the HBT readership, here’s come a bash session.

The supposedly controversial singer was in attendance at the opener of Thursday’s day-night doubleheader between the Padres and Mets in New York City and flashed her middle finger to the supposedly photog-filled crowd at one point from her luxury suite.  Classy.

Gaga, whose real name is Stefanie Germanotta, grew up in NYC as a Yankees fan and was back in town for her sister’s high school graduation.  She’s found an international following among teeny-boppers and club goers with regurgitated pop tunes, and has sold over 15 million albums in a little over two years to the mindless masses.

Let’s hope her experience Thursday at Citi Field will end any affiliation she ever hoped to have with Major League Baseball.  After all, you can’t really autotune the Star Spangled Banner.  Or can you?

    Michelle you do know that there are plenty of “autotune” programs that work in a live setting. Just because you saw her perform live doesn’t mean it was not processed. I haven’t seen her live, but I do know a thing or two about music production, and her recordings are horrendous.

    “has sold over 15 million albums in a little over two years to the mindless masses.”
    For real? The mindless author of this article needs to go back to 2nd grade. “Here’s come a bash session”?
    While I do not particularly like her type of music, I am certainly not going to judge her negatively just because I do not listen to it.
    Who said ‘piss off’? Roger that!!!!!

    Exactly what kind of behaviour did you expect from this “mindless skank”? The only good thing this waste of time will ever do for mankind is to disappear. She is nothing more than “trailer trash’ plain and simple.

    In my world, giving the finger tells you that you are #1. Couldn’t agree more. Go Ga-Ga.

    Was at citi field yesterday as the met batters watched gaga instead of the padres pitchers.Will she show at the stadium next week to do a replay?

    I’m mindless, who’s Lady Gaga ?

  7. Deville - Jun 11, 2010 at 3:40 PM

    Lady Ga-Ga is a performer who makes tons of cash using other people’s artistic abilities as writers. She takes their words, puts them to a beat and music, dresses half naked and lets the chips fall where they may. Have I explained this correctly PBH? If it weren’t for the people who love her final results, she would just be a half naked singer…….with a finger. Well, two fingers depending on whether she is right handed or left.

    what a piece of crap this drew guy wrote. i also am an admirer of gaga and her music. she obivously is a professional, knows how to target an audience, and has developed an apt for success at the young age of 24. i believe many people wish they could also be as successful at any age of their life. so what if i like half naked platinum blondes who can belt out a tune and make it stick. as a matter of fact i’m 56 years old and will be right there with her in AC on the 4th of july. for those of you that really missed the reason for the finger jab it supposedly was directed toward photgraphers who were more interested in taking her picture than that of the game. she felt the photographers were ruining the game for the fans. that’s why she moved to another seating area rather than stay in the seats she was assigned.

    MerkleBoner…be honest with yourself and everyone else and come out of the closet…

    GAGA is simply defining her level of class…..the game is more important

    “Lady gaga, like her or not, is hailed the most captivating artist since MJ… to deny this plausibility is just down right ignorant.”
    Putting her in the same sentence as MJ is just downright ignorant. How old are you, 15?
    You guys are all proving Drew’s point. You’re just a bunch of mindless sheep who think she can do no wrong. I am absolutely certain that had this been any other celebrity giving the finger you would tear them to shreds, but somehow Lady Gaga gets a pass because you all believe that she’s a “rockstar” of some sorts. You show up to a baseball game dressed like that, EXPECT for photographers to be focused on you. If she really wanted to be inconspicuous, she would’ve dressed appropriately for the occasion. She’s not dumb, she knew exactly what she was doing, she wanted attention, and she succeeded in getting it. That is all she cares about, getting attention. She makes crappy music, but wears garish costumes to fool everyone into thinking that she’s avant-garde. Only in today’s crappy musical landscape could a Madonna clone be considered edgy or groundbreaking.
    Props to Drew Silva for telling it like it is. Gaga fanatics can’t handle the truth? Oh well, too bad. The whole world doesn’t have to kiss her ass like you guys. Besides, she’s only been here for two years. Plenty of artists have experienced great success within a 2-5 year time span… and then they disappeared afterwards. Remember that.

    Who cares how well she sings it … she’s so HOT!!! .. I’ll just sit and watch.

    You hit the nail on the head . It’s ridiculous to give this douche bag any press at all .

    “Gaga tried to be the next Norah Jones, but Norah Jones doesn’t sell.”
    Exactly. Crap like Gaga sells because Americans love crap. How else would you explain reality TV?

    that’s what really gets me

    Gaga would be able to sing the Star Spangled Banner just fine, she can sing just as well if not better just using a piano. Clearly when you wrote this pathetic excuse of an article you didn’t do any research on her. Or have heard her sing live for that matter. She didn’t become famous due to her inability to sing. Clearly you don’t know talent if took a chunk out of your ass. Its because she CAN sing and is an icon in fashion and much more AND a role model in what she stands for. The people who dare to be different.Like the middle finger is the worst you’ll see in that arena? There are far worse and more grotesque things you see there than a superstar’s finger. Knowing Gaga she probably did that so idiots like you HAVE something to talk about. They wanted to take pictures of her so bad she gave you guys a pic worth taking. So be thankful she did or else your sorry ass would have nothing to write about. And judging by this article if she didn’t flip the camera the bird that woulda been the end of you. So really dude get a fucking life and get the fuck out of Gaga’s face.
    Forever Gaga’s Little Monster Antonio
