I'M GAGA OVER GAGA

Dear Atheists, Agnostics, Believers, Don't Carers, and Beliebers (oh my god I'm gonna throw up),

I've been trying out some different salutations. I need a change occasionally, and yes, that includes my panties. If you have a salutation you'd like to suggest, then go to hell let me know what it is, and I might try it. You get an extra one hundred points if you can include "drug" in the salutation where it should be "dragged," because replacing dragged with drug drives Andi Filante crazy. She blogs at delusions of ingenuity. She's very funny, and I think it will be hilarious if we use drug right now to make her so crazy that her husband, Philly's Done Hooters, will have drug her away to the mental hospital by midnight to get some real drugs.

My birthday was yesterday. I am 26. Oh, God, what will I do when I turn 30? I might as well die because I'm so old.

The Hurricane called yesterday to wish me a birthday happy. She gets everything backasswards. Interesting that she's 28, and I'm 26. People used to think I was her older sister. Maybe I am. Hmmmmm.

Now, let's Gaga, as in Lady. I've admitted before that I had to ask The Hurricane what a Lady Gaga was. She explained "more performance artist than just singer." I liked the Gaga, as in Lady. Her name is Stefani, and she's really into it's okay to be different. Rita Pita Pan of SoulComfort's Corner likes her, too. Recently I heard that Gaga, as in Lady, wasn't hot anymore, that her career was going down the toilet. I was shocked. Someone also said that Madonna is finally losing her popularity. I don't care about that, but I don't want Gaga to go away.

Then Gaga, as in Lady, performed at the Academy Awards on Sunday night. She sang a 50th anniversary tribute to The Sound of Music, and she knocked my fucking socks off. Here's what I can get online:




We have a new Julie fuckin' Andrews, but with tats. Thank you, God.




Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

P.S. I've tried to include a few Gaga videos from the Oscars because I'm afraid they'll take them away.

  1. So how's about: 'Glad to see all y'all drug yer asses over here, sit down an' yack a spell.' Tilt your hat back and chaw on a piece of hay, they might just think you're a Southerner.

  2. "To the drugged, drug dealers, drug makers, drug takers, drug free, and drug fakers (people taking placebos)..." There, does that salutation utilize "drug" enough? Oh, different use of the word. Damn homonyms.
    Once again, happy birthday. Hope you had a great time.
    I have no opinion about Lady Gaga, so, I support your support of her, because, why not?

    1. Thank you for supporting my support. I like drugs a lot. I had a horrible, lonely birthday. No one loves me. No one sent me money.

  3. SUGGESTION FOR NEW JANIE JUNEBUG SALUTATION:

    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    I'm Gaga over Janie Junebug! Remember, dear friend, 56 is the new 16. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and refrained from recreational drag use. (I engage in recreational drag use every time I don my Dorothy costume and ruby slippers.)

    I didn't see the Awards but was glad you showed me Lady Gaga's performance. It makes me very happy when a modern artist performs a classic piece with authenticity. It reminded me of Christina Aguilera's song and video which payed homage to the big band sound and girl groups of the WWII years.

    Happy Tuesday, dear Janie!

    1. If I refrained from recreational drug use, then what would I do with myself? Be allowed to introduce myself?

  4. I do not know the current music scene at all, but have admired Madonna and Lady Gaga from the get go. Madonna started a long time ago, and was the essence of doing it her way. Gaga, much the same.

    1. I didn't like Madonna at first when she sang Like A Virgin and humped the floor. She's become a little more interesting over the years. I'm in love with Gaga.

  5. She did an incredible job, Janie, and I'm all for anyone who can find a way to promote herself, then show everyone what she can do! Fabulous performance, and so cute with Julie Andrews coming out.

    1. Julie seemed touched. She's 79! I hope I look that good when I'm 59,

  6. I saw a recent picture of Lady Gaga as a brunette. She looked good, and I think that is her natural color. She should lose all of the costumes and go with that voice!!

    1. I think I've seen her with every possible hair color. Maybe she'll cut back on the costumes and make-up now that everyone knows she can sing like the Queen Bitch.

  7. I adore Lady Gaga. The entire time I was watching her Oscar performance, I kept expecting her to rip off that princess gown and start dancing in her underwear to a sexually suggestive technobeat version of "My Favourite Things." I was quite disappointed when she sang the whole tribute straight. But I was somewhat comforted by her fab tattoos.

    1. I thought her tats looked good, too. I'm not a lesbian, but I'm in love with her. Wait. Does that make me a lesbian, or lesbianish?

      Delete
    2. No, it just makes you a fan. You have to work your way up to being a lesbian. I could give you lessons if you want. Hahahahaha!

      Delete
    3. That reminds me of the episode of Sex and the City when Charlotte hung out with lesbians until one said something to the effect of "You have to eat pussy to be one of us." The problem is I don't have a cat.

  8. She stole the show, even managing a classy intro for Julie Andrews after she sang. If you're going to reinvent your career, do it big!

    1. Go down, us! Wait! That didn't come out the way I meant it. I meant good for us for getting younger.

  10. Like you, I was impressed with Lady Gaga at the Oscars. I had no idea she could sing with such range.

    1. I was already impressed by her showmanship and versatility. Now I am big-time impressed by her voice.

  11. I was never a fan of Lady Gaga. Then again, I was never NOT a fan of Lady Gaga (I do like 'Bad Romance,' though). Whenever the Gaga subject came up, I was..."meh." But, when I saw the You Tube of her Oscars performance (I couldn't bring myself to watch that thing live)....wow. Holy moley frikkin' WOW.
    I WAS a fan of Madonna, though. And we see how that whole thing is going. Grandma oughta have a seat.
    I saved her a seat.

    1. I've gradually come to like Madonna's music over the years, but she doesn't seem like the kind of person with whom one can be buddies. Gaga exudes warmth and acceptance.

  12. She did a great job! I'm impressed!

  13. hola Janie, she's a performance artist, I think she studied and major in that in college, don't know much about her though, liked that her name is Stefani, and happy birthday girl!

    1. She studied at the Tisch School for the Arts in New York, but did not graduate.

  14. Oh the humanity!

    I've never followed Lada Gaga, but wow...that performance. Impressive!

  15. So I drugged my hubby's butt to watch the Oscars and we were all blown away by her voice. She was excellent and the highlight of the night for me. Thankfully she didn't wear her dishwashing gloves

    1. Yeah, the first dress and the red gloves didn't really do it for me. She looked like royalty in the second dress.

  16. Happy 26th birthday this year & EVERY year!! Paul Johnson said, "I hear 40 is the new 30. I also hear 35 is the new 25 as measured by accrued net worth. I hear 20 is the new seventh grade in turms of speling abilitee. I hear 13 is the new fetus."

  17. It was great to see GaGa, as in Lady stripped down of all her nonsense and just singing. Her ensembles used to be a bit distracting...like she drug out all the bells and buzzers and stuck them on herself.

    How about...Salutations! Glad you drug yourself over!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gaga proved that she's just not a performing shock artist. She has a voice and range--wow! Impressed! I already liked her because of her be yourself and it's okay to be different messages. I FFed through tons of it but I guess I managed to catch all the highlights. :)

    1. I don't think she's Lady Gaga anymore. I think she's Princess Gaga, on her way to Queen Stefani.

  19. I love imagination and Lady Gaga has stomped her out a little hog waller and then stomped it dry. I'm not certain what that means, but my late friend John Elliott used to say it with vigor whenever he talked about Ralph Stanley or Toney Rice who are phenomenal bluegrass pickers and I could see Gaga with a banjo.
    I said all that to say this, i think she is a distant cousin twice removed.

    1. I've read that if we go far enough back on our family trees that we're all related to someone famous. Somewhere, someone is saying, Well, my farts and garters, will ya look at that? I'm related to Rick Watson!
