I like Lady Gaga. Well, I don’t know her, so who knows if I’d like her if I ever met her. I’m sure she’s a very nice girl. But man, she’s just weird. I mean, she thrives on being weird. Weird is her middle name.

American Idol, Lady Gaga

She was the “mentor” on ‘American Idol‘ tonight, and while I really do like her music — who wouldn’t groove out to ‘Poker Face’? — I don’t think she should be mentoring kids on their music pursuits. First of all, her shoes were banned from the show. How can that be, you ask?

According to Ryan Seacrest, the shape of her footwear was of a ‘ladies tool.’ “She came in wearing broadcast standards sensitive shoes,”  he explained on his radio show this morning. “She came in wearing a very female tool on her feet. That is all I am telling you.”

Really, Gaga? These are just kids! Some of them are teenagers! What is wrong with you?! There must have been some fancy editing or something, because the mentoring clips they showed just had her in some sky-high stilettos, but they didn’t look like “tools.”

And she was even weirder, if that’s possible, during the mentoring sessions. She wore this Barbarella-type black leather outfit with short shorts, the usual bizarre makeup, black-and-white hair, and the stilettos.

And the contestants seemed like they didn’t really know what to make of her. She told Scotty McCreery to treat his microphone like it was his girlfriend who’d just told him to stick his tongue down her throat, otherwise she’d leave him. Scotty McCreery is 17 years old, people.

Did you watch ‘American Idol’ tonight? Did you think she was wildly inappropriate? Did it seem like she was drugged up? Or just being Gaga?


  1. Too bad I missed that. It sounds really, really weird. I like weird – in the right context. And this was definitely NOT the right context, it seems!

  2. Sheesh, that sounds weird to me. We stopped watching years ago after Adam didn’t win, then Paula left and Simon seemed tired, then he left. I don’t know, the show just seems too slick now, too commercialized (yes, it’s always been, but now it bugs me more after so many years). I’m wondering how much longer the show will/can last? What are your thoughts?

  3. I’m not watching Idol, but I’m horrified by what kids these days are exposed to. They hear/see this kind of stuff, and then we wonder why there are so many teen pregnancies.
