New York native Lady Gaga stormed into the Bronx Friday night wearing the mandatory pinstripes, but not much else. After her team lost to the cross-town rival New York Mets, Gaga apparently talked her way past security and into the clubhouse before press was allowed to visit with the team. The NY Post originally reported that Gaga was later banned from the clubhouse
A fuming Hal Steinbrenner informed Yankee Stadium executives that Lady Gaga is permanently banned from the team’s clubhouse after her boozy antics — including swigging whiskey and repeatedly fondling her boobs — during a visit to the house that Ruth built Friday night…
Since the initial report, it appears the Yankees are singing a different tune and Lady Gaga, like other celebs, is welcome to meet with the team.
“She’s not banned,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday. “Celebrities aren’t banned. If Michael Jordan showed up here he would have access (to the clubhouse), but not after a loss.”
While names of the players that visited with the new Queen of Pop, it’s rumored that both Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez visited with her.
Lady Gaga has been the fixture of much baseball drama in New York City over the past several days, starting with her visit to Citi Field on June 10th when she warmly flipped off Mets fans and photographers. ESPN.com is reporting:
This provided not only a treat for photographers but also a marketing opportunity for the Mets; they’ve designated this coming Wednesday’s game vs. the Tigers as “Go Gaga for Wright” night, to campaign for third baseman David Wright’s election to the National League All-Star team. The first 20,000 fans through the gates will receive a blue foam hand with the index finger extended — “the best finger,” according to a TV commercial for the promotion — and the words “Make Wright #1” printed on it.
Duchess Camilla Parker-Bowels, wife of Prince Charles, spoke out yesterday condemning Beyoncé and other artists for the overtly sexual and violent images they spread to young, influential children. The discussion took place between the Duchess and victims of sexual violence while Camilla was touring the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre in Croydon, South London.
The Duchess referenced Beyoncé’s latest project “Video Phone (Remix)” with Lady Gaga in which she dances around in skimpy outfits with toy guns.
While she blames the media for much of the overexposure to such images, Parker-Bowels also went onto say “…schools needed to become involved in teaching both male and female schoolchildren ‘the value of respect for each other'”(DailyMail)

The video for Beyonce’s “Video Phone” remix featuring Lady Gaga has finally been released after Sony pulled back its original November 5th release date. As expected, the fashion throughout the entire video is bright and exciting. The video was directed by Hype Williams who also directed Mariah Carey’s “I Want to Know What Love Is” on an earlier post. This remix will be available on Beyonce’s re-release of I Am…Sasha Fierce due out November 23rd.
Beyonce and Lady Gaga have teamed up in the studio on 2 highly anticipated and top-secret tracks. First up is “Video Phone Remix” comes from Beyonce’s I Am…Sasha Fierce which is set for a special re-launch this month. The song remains mostly untouched but does feature a new verse and some ad-libs from Lady Gaga throughout the track. The video for this song has been put together and was set for a November 5th release but Sony decided to push it back to coincide with Beyonce’s album re-release.
Next up is Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” from her The Fame: Monster release also scheduled for a November 23rd release.
Personally, I liked the original version of Beyonce’s Video Phone enough that I wouldn’t have changed it but I love the direction of “Telephone.” It’s typical Lady Gaga music and shows Beyonce’s versatility and her Sasha Fierce toughness.
Lady Gaga continues to inspire some and puzzle others with her latest video for “Bad Romance.” Her latest release comes off of the much anticipated album “The Fame: Monster” scheduled for a November 23rd release. The album is expected to have 8 new tracks including “Telephone” with Beyoncé which has already begun generating significant buzz.
