Gaga?

A few days ago, Barbara Walter's revealed nine of the ten people who made her list of 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009. I didn't make the cut. These people did:
  • Brett Favre
  • Sarah Palin
  • Michael Jackson's children
  • Kate Gosselin
  • Adam Lambert
  • Tyler Perry
  • Jenny Sanford
  • Glenn Beck
  • Lady Gaga
Lady what? Despite the fact that I am, like, totally hip, here, and now, I have no idea what or who a Lady Gaga is. My first thought was that it was some sort of Ladies Home Companion (if you know what I mean), but even the best of them don't usually attain personhood.

So, what or who do you think a Lady Gaga is? I'd be fascinated to know.

What a list. Mainly just people in entertainment news? She might be a singer. And who in the heck is Glenn Beck?

Fireblossom said...

Lady Gaga is one of those famous for being famous people, who has made a lot of capital out of being famously bisexual. She only ever seems to be mentioned as being with men, though. Maybe she's only "bi" when her boyfriend is around. *smirk* There's a lot of that going around.

Tbh, you couldn't pay me to sit with most of the people on that list. I don't know who Jenny Sanford is. I'd like to meet Kate Gosselin (she's CUTE and handy with a zinger aimed at dum-dum John!). Tyler Perry seems like he would be interesting. But the rest? Please. Security!

Nessa said...

I am so not hip, because although I know who all of these people are, I don't find any of them fascinating.

i love lady gaga - her songs rock, poker face and let's dance (great to run to). as for her crazy perfomance art and dressing. it is entertaining and at least it is someone new in the mix. giving madonna a run for her money.

perezhilton talked about her very eraly on....

Frau said...

Barbara please Lady G!! WOW are we really in that short of a supply of fascinating people.

Dawn said...

I don't know who lady gaga is either.
Sarah Palin is fascinating? Wow. Who knew?

Pacey said...

I guess I must have seen Lady Gaga perform, but not quite extraordinary...you know what I mean, hehehe...thanks for the visit. Namaste.

Sylvia said...

Good heavens! Half of those, I don't know who they are. Some others, I wouldn't consider them fascinating. Who, among those, did something really extraordinary to be considered fascinating? I wonder...

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

You will always be hip in these eyes, MZ! But there are so many more fascinating people in the world than those listed!

Back to Lady Gaga.
Michael Jackson got torn apart for his weirdness! I think his true bohemian spirit paved the way for those who are capitalizing on being different in the entertainment business. Whether it's all publicity or it's the real deal, one would have to be her fly on the wall, me thinks!

Fresh Mommy said...

Hahaha, yeah it's hard to keep up!! She's a musical entertainer. But this list just made me laugh... really?!?

jane said...

these are 2009 most fascinating people... must have been a slow year...

Matty said...

You have to remember that this is "HER" list. It isn't your list or mine. It's hers. So who is fascinating to her isn't necessarily to you or me.

starrlife said...

I expect a bit more from Baba Wawa. It would be nice to have someone with brains on that list. I guess I'm an intellectual snob! I do know who most are though- Lady Gaga is a Madonna clone- heavy muscular style dancing- rather mechanical and heavy on the sex objectification, singing incidental and over produced. Now if Leonard Cohen was on that list I'd be cool with that!

Akelamalu said...

I've just watched Lady Gaga on the X Factor!

Life As I Know It said...

Kate Gosslin? Really?

Blech.

LarryG said...

send her your pic in tee shirt regalia!
even ba-ba needs enlightenment from MZ!

Talon said...

The gaga I know about...but I have no idea who Jenny Sanford is and I doubt I'll watch to find out - lol!

otin said...

Lady Gaga is very popular right now. She could be this generation's Madonna. Glenn Beck is just a fool!

Alice Audrey said...

How dare she leave you out of the list! Humph.

StatMama said...

Lady Gaga is a very famous singer at the moment. I like her music, and she is typically not my preferred genre at ALL. But she's different, and I like that.

Glen Beck is a professional asshole.

Thom said...

Are you living in a cage woman? LOL. Lady Gaga is the bomb...but...I've heard she's a man...WOOT!!! publicity stunt I tell you. What shocked me even more is that Mama Zen didn't make the list. Now see, ya should have made more of a presence at the book singing...For sure you would have been in the top 10 if ya had done that :) Have a wonderful week ahead :)

Mojo said...

Okay, I've heard the name Lady Gaga, but that's about it. My impression was that she's another pop diva in the Speas-Aguilera-Pussycat Doll mold, which immediately dropped her off my "interesting" radar. I mean what's interesting about another carbon copy popslut? Seriously.

And when did Baba Wawa go to work for Fox News? Glenn Beck?? WTF?? I suppose he's interesting in the same way as a new strain of flesh eating bacteria might be. Sarah Palin? Interesting in the same way that a train wreck might be.

I note Katie Couric didn't make the list. Too bad. that could have made the awards ceremony very interesting.

Or perhaps she's the 10th of 10. Yeah, that must be it.

And you should have totally made the list. If Couric isn't the 10th, I hope it's you. then you can confront Hockey Mom Nazi with your... I forget what it says t-shirt. (But I'll make it for you if you tell me where to send it. I'm good like that.)

ali said...

Aww, I'm sorry you didn't make the cut MZ. There's always next year, right?

reyapot said...

she sang the song "just dance" :-)

thanks for dropping by my blog.. see u again!

Bengbeng said...

i am surprise lady Gaga made the list.. i know she is an entertainer etc but there r many others just as talented

Shadow said...

no loss to you that you don't know who lady gaga is. mind you, i don't know most of them...

LL Cool Joe said...

You don't know who Lady Gaga is????

***Falls flat on his face***

A Lady's Life said...

Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite.

I guess she hasn't decided yet on who she really wants to be and I mean I think that its rather grand of her to be and accept how she was born and to use it to her advantage.
It takes guts.

Brian Miller said...

all you would have to do is see her once, she has so little to hide...lol.

storyteller said...

Dare I admit how many names on this list I don't recognize??? Sigh!
Hugs and blessings,

Susan at Stony River said...

MZ, it's an honour not to be on that list, because it's frankly a crap list. I hope Barbra's joking.

I didn't know half the people on it so had to look them up, and honestly...it's more like a celebrity freakshow than a quality shortlist.
:-/

Cookie said...

I thought lady gaga was a singer. But there are others on the last that I'm afraid to admit, I have no idea who they are.

Jen said...

Huh, I would have had a different list.

Amanda said...

Crap. I didn't make the cut either.

Did Barbara weawlly know who Wady Gaga was?

The Absence of Alternatives said...

I can't tell Lady Gaga's song as any other trash on the radio either. I only know her because of her Kermit Frog outfit. (Oh my eyes...) Unbelievable how she repeatedly topped the Bejork's swan dress.

Pouty Lips said...

All I know about her is that she invented the disco stick. I think it's a personal toy or something. (I'm catching up on my reading today after 9 long weeks of graduate school hell.)
