Gaga plans to go silent

And Finally

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is planning a self-enforced exile from the media after one last big interview with Oprah Winfrey. In a TV special due to air in the US this weekend, the Gaga-ster will tell Winfrey of her plan to cut herself off from Planet News for the foreseeable, ignoring everything the media says, and refusing to provide comment on anything at all. I suspect this voluntary silence will last as long as one of Jay-Z’s retirements, but we’ll see I guess.

Says Gaga in the Oprah chat: “Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time… No press, no television, if my mom calls and says: ‘Did you hear about…’ I shut it all off”. And the media can say whatever it likes during the voluntary exile, it seems, because the popstress says she doesn’t care what journalists write, and anyway “I don’t read a damn thing”.

So, if we can say whatever we like, did you know Lady Gaga was really an anteater in a dress who was discovered by Enrique Iglesias in a Canadian zoo and taught to sing by the one who played the foreign kid in ‘That’s 70s Show’, and that she only ripped off Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’ for her hit ‘Born This Way’ to remind everyone how Madge used to make pretty good pop music? Not all of that sentence is true, but it’s alright, the Gaga doesn’t care.
