Lady GaGa in South Gate

with 3 comments

It’s always odd to hear of famous people or celebrities in South Gate, Huntington Park, etc. I don’t talk about Saúl Viera or Chalino famous, I mean well-known because the media has anointed them as such. I was amazed to read that Bobby Brown and Eazy-E were at the same Bell High School dance in 1986 hosted by KDAY and DJed by Julio G. It’s befuddling.

In that vein, Lady GaGa was in South Gate this past week. A friend posted that link on Facebook and while I was initially skeptical, I wasn’t after I saw the pictures. The first picture (posted below and taken from the article) shows her crossing Elizabeth towards Greenspan’s. Looks like she wanted to shop. I don’t blame her, Greenspan’s is a great place to shop.

The apartment complex in the background of the first picture is on Elizabeth, behind the parking lot for Giant Dollar (which in my heart will forever be La Barata). Here’s a link to Google Maps Street View for comparison. I’m guessing someone told photographers to come down with her because there is no way in hell they were so conveniently in the neighborhood.

To the right is a picture I took on Feb. 6th of the same apartment complex (there was something wrong with my camera, I apologize). While she possibly entered Giant Dollar, the pictures tell that she really went to Greenspan’s. Greenspan’s confirms her visit via their Twitter account. The picture they link to is this one.

Utterly befuddled.

  1. She is funky, edgy, unique, and so is her music – quite of the future! .. I like her lots. And people should sop saying she is trying to be like Christina Aguilera purely because they don’t like Lady Gaga and Christina appears to be the ‘good excuse’ for that.. I feel Lady G, brings something dynamic and fresh to music, and she totally ROX!

  2. Which stage am I in? I recognize that while the lyrics she sings are clearly more intellectual than a Britney Spears or a Christina Aguilera, and while she’s clearly read some philosophy and paid attention in Art History class, and while the music is catchy and can be fun to listen to at times, there just isn’t much substance to any of it, and if one is in search of good poetry there are better places to look, and if one is in search of good pop music there are better places to look. The world doesn’t need a new Andy Warhol. The first one was bad enough. I’m not sure the arts can survive the second coming. The Warhol/Gaga ethos is more dangerous and deadly to the arts than the entire Republican Party, not only because the Warhol/Gaga crowd what gives the Republican Party all of its ammunition, but also because the hard-on-for-fame idea embraces selling out, corporate capitalism, cheap celebrity, and manufactured drama with an abandon that not even Us Weekly and TMZ can keep up with.
