While I was laid up something wicked on New Year’s Eve with food poisoning, there was at least one bright spot: Lady Gaga’s live Times Square performance on ABC’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seabreast (scripted by my pal Fred Bronson). Our Lady of G turned T.S. into a ticker-taped extravaganza with performances of “Marry the Night” and “Born This Way.”
Despite my stomach dyspepsia, I managed to laugh out loud at one of the funniest combos I have seen in my days: Gaga side by side with NYC Mayor Nanny Bloomberg. That’s an unlikely pairing, for sure.
On the other hand, you’ll note the closet queen is actually smiling in Ga’s presence: the first time I have seen anything other than a grimace on the billionaire’s mug. I have a feeling he’s twirled around Gracie Mansion a time or two singing “Born This Way” with a hairbrush in his hand, yeah? *
