Lady Gaga

Tuesday sees the Dallas leg of Lady Gaga's latest attempt to put some relevant words in front of the word "Ball" and successfully market it as an event. To be fair to Lady G, she's one of those rare pop phenomenons who managed, at least for a while, to successfully unite critics and a rabid fanbase, and she certainly knows how to put on a show. At the very least, and with no basis whatsoever in experience, I can guarantee you glitter, flames, Auto-Tuning, bizarre and unwieldy costume changes, probably some sort of wheeled contraption, PETA protesters and a good-to-great Madonna impression. Coming soon to an American Airlines Center near you.
