After spending the past few years releasing album after album and single after single and touring non-stop, Lady Gaga has finally decided to take a little break and shut herself off from the world (until her Born This Way Ball Tour kicks off on April 27th in Seoul, South Korea). So good news! We can finally stop hearing Lady Gaga talk about how she IS the theatre. Yeah, you ARE the theatre. Feel free to trot out that gem at the Tonys, see how well that holds up. Us Weekly reports:
“Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time,” the pop superstar explains. “The latest thing I do is I don’t read a damn thing,” she adds about limiting her media intake. “No press, no television, if my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about?’ I don’t want to know nothing about anything that is going on in relation to music. I shut it all off.”
Yes, please, for the love of God, take a break. I want to like Gaga, I really do. Because at least she has talent and she does great work for equal rights. But holy crap, is she ever irritating at times. I really want to just like her for her, but every time she goes on some pretentious rant about art, I just want to point out that wearing a lobster on your head doesn’t accomplish much.
