Lady GaGa in South Gate
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.
