I’m anything but surprised when I see headlines like this anymore. But yes, it seems Lady Gaga is set to perform at an official White House Inaugural Ball. (Notice: I said “an.” There are like two dozen of these things.) That said, this “news” is coming to us from an “anonymous source”; so I suppose we should add a question mark to our headline. Lady Gaga to Play Inaugural Ball for White House Staffers?
Better? It could, after all, be nothing more than speculation. After all, who invites a crazy chick to the White House?
But let’s be real. She’s playing. And her appearance will no doubt give the LGBT community yet another reason to hope their chosen leader will use his post to solve what they see as the “Greatest Civil Rights issue” of our generation. And then she’ll perform, make some headlines, and the White House will go back to being mum on the whole “Same Sex Marriage” thing just like the rest of us until the next primary season. But she, and they, will go on saying he’s the greatest thing to happen to their community since unisex t-shirts.
The staff ball is typically a private affair. During the last inauguration festivities, Jay-Z reportedly performed at it.
Think she’ll wear the Machine Gun Bra to the party?
Yes, that is a link to the photo…of the bra. More accurately, a photo of her in the aforementioned bra. So click only if you’re truly prepared for the image to be burned into your retinas.
