Weasel of the Week: Lady GaGa

This one is a slam dunk pick for a very simple reason.

Lady GaGa, one of the hottest recording artists out there these days, decided to take in the afternoon portion of Thursday's day-night doubleheader between the Mets & the Padres at Citi Field, then made the front pages of today's New York Post & New York Daily News when she expressed her displeasure at the paparazzi taking pictures of her by flashing her middle finger not once, but twice.

According to the account in the Daily News, GaGa wanted to blend in with the fans at Citi, even though she happens to be a Yankee fan. One would assume she wanted to get a good look at the competition, considering that Subway Series '10, round 2, goes down at Yankee Stadium II next weekend. However, her idea of blending in was to wear a leather jacket over nothing more than lingerie. A bra, panties, and, as the papers neglected to note, fishnet stockings. That draws the shutterbugs like moths to flame. Casual attire apparently is a foreign concept to GaGa, who apparently aspires to ascend to the throne of Queen of Pop Schlock & Shock, an unofficial title held by Madonna for the last 25 years. At this time of year, she could've left the fishnets in the lingerie drawer and opted for something, well, normal, like a halter top, blue jean skirt or shorts, and sandals. Sorry, sister, you can't have it both ways.

It may have put a cap to a troubling 48 hours in New York for GaGa, though. She played a special concert at her old school, upstaging her sister's graduation by showing up in another of her already infamously outrageous costumes. While Madonna has mellowed in recent years (being a mother will do that), her stunts seem relatively tame compared to Lady GaGa's antics. At least GaGa hasn't tried to make a movie. Yet.
