But it’s just another piece of evidence to add to the ever-growing collection of ‘Is Gaga that creative?’ Which has really turned into ‘God, Gaga is annoying’.

I didn’t watch the MTV movie, music? awards. I can’t imagine anything interesting happened, but I have seen pictures of Lady Gaga…oh I’m sorry, Jo or whatever quirky name we’re going with. Is it just me, or do her/his facial expressions, and the entire concept just make you want to punch her? I have yet to listen to her entire cd because Gaga, you fell off.
