Last night was a Monday night. We decided to go to a concert… an hour and a half away, on a Monday night. Although it was not our best thought out plan, it was hands down one of the best performances that I have seen. We went and saw Lady GaGa in concert. It was amazing. She is more than just an artist, but actually a true performer. Therefore making the tired, heavy and aching eyes completely a moot point. I am not gonna lie. I would happily take another near sleepless night to see her in concert again.
The opening act was Semi Precious Weapons. The lead singer definitely made the performance interesting and worth watching.
Gaga took about an hour to come on stage (which was frustrating) but after the first song and seeing what we were going to be getting for two hours straight, it was hard to stay angry. She came out in 2008 just in time to see Madonna off. She is on the same level of extreme as Madonna was in the 80s which was WAY extreme. Madonna dies off (and rightly so… kinda like how the stones need to — not saying both artists are bad, just saying there should be a tour expiration, thas all…. but to each their own) and Lady Gaga pops up. And just wow.
And you know as controversial and provactive as her videos and outfits can be, she is doing a lot of positive stuff, not just for the LGBT community, but also for people in general. She said some pretty inspirational, albeit cheesy, stuff last night as she lived up to her full potential as a role model to the tweens of this world. She said to everyone: “This is for everyone who’s been told they weren’t pretty enough, or smart enough, or skinny enough, or talented enough, or a good enough singer or a good enough songwriter or a good enough dancer… because everyone told me I’d NEVER, EVER be a pop star…” – insert gutteral scream – “… but now I’m here to SET YOU FREE. When you go home, don’t love me more. Love YOURSELF more.”
Anyway. Every bit of a performance that I expected and then some on top of that. Oh and side note, I wore a fanny pack. It was awesome and I am SOOOOOO bring back the fanny pack! BRINGIN THE PACKS BACK!
