Lady Gaga Drops the Ball
But all seriousness aside, it seems our burgomeister is gaga over Gaga. “I have never met Lady Gaga,” Bloomberg sadly admitted at a City Hall news conference. “I saw her once perform at the Metropolitan Museum. I thought she was a great entertainer, but I do not personally know her and I’m looking forward to it!”
The dance diva will be Bloomberg's special guest on New Year’s Eve for the 2012 countdown. La Ga will push the Waterford crystal button at 11:59 p.m., signaling the start of the dropping ball and the final countdown to midnight. (A dropping ball is not usually a good sign except on New Year's Eve, as you -- and Gaga -- are, most likely, already aware.) M'Lady will also perform in front of about 1 million people in Times Square for New Year's Rockin' Eve: The 40th Anniversary Party. America's Oldest Teenager, Dick Clark, 82, will co-host again with Ryan Seacrest beginning at 10:00 p.m.
Seacrest gushed, "Lady Gaga is one of the most exciting and relevant artists of our time, and we're thrilled to have her join 'New Year's Rockin' Eve' this year in Times Square!"
Lady Gaga, you have ruled this burg this holiday season. In fact, you've recently been all over the globe, freshly returned from performing in India. From Bangladesh to Bloomberg, obviously world domination is your goal and you've nearly reached it. But welcome home, and I hope to tune in to catch you on the edge of glory once again.
