Easily the most brilliantly bonkers video you’ll see today.
Protestors from Aran (Animal Rights Fighting Network) including Aoibhinn Gilroy (top with red hand) and Bria Ni Laoithe (above) outside the Avia Stadium in Dublin Saturday night ahead of the Lady Gaga concert.
Meanwhile, yesterday in London:
Occupy Gaga within the last few minutes.

From China’s most popular satellite channel Hunan TV:
…playing to an audience of hundreds of millions of Chinese people worldwide, a group of retired senior citizens (over)cheerfully beat out a version of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” in Changsha’s local dialect, accompanied by miniskirted Chinese musicians playing glass traditional Chinese instruments.
And by that, we mean parodying pop hits. Here he is (looking fabulous for a woman of 51) going full Gaga.
Lady Gaga is now demanding that photographers surrender the copyright of photos taken at her concerts – and photographers are incensed.
Washington, D.C. website TBD.com made this practice public on Friday when they published the release form given to their photographer Jay Westcott. In addition to standard release restrictions regarding the use of images shot at her concerts, the document states that any photos taken at the show become the property of Lady Gaga. This an especially bold demand as the government has established that copyright exists the moment when a work is created, which in this case is the moment when a photographer clicks their shutter button.
Good luck with that, Miss Germanotta.

Starting this spring, the University of South Carolina will be offering a class on Lady Gaga.
The original course, Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame, was created and will be taught by Mathieu Deflem, a longtime USC professor of sociology and Lady Gaga fan. To the best of Deflem’s knowledge, this will be the only full-time, university-level course of its kind in the country.

Sitting alone (in her rubber underwear naturally) at a piano she’s as powerful a performer as you’ll get to see or hear. Her comic side is never far away either. In a paen (sic) to her favourite whiskey Jameson she swears she’s not promoting drunkenness but “sometimes at the end of the night a bottle of whiskey is the only thing that won’t say no.” And wrapping a bandana around a hat she says that she is not actually a “fashion genius, just very crafty”.
