Lady Gaga was that you?
I was walking down the street here in NYC and I heard someone yell out, "Hey, Lady Gaga!" and it did look like her. Who knows...only Lady Gaga knows. TMZ has a racy video of her body surfacing with fans and their hands moving her like Niagara Falls...the movements rough, rapid and full of life.
I got the new Vanity Fair Issue to read the piece on disgraced money manger to king Mike Bloomberg but of course I read the cover story on Lada Gaga.
Lady Gaga is the star of The Vanity Fair cover, the name of another posting on VF.
For Lady Gaga fans the issue of Vanity Fair is a must have. For those waiting for more corruption to be exposed at City Hall reading the Steve Rattner article is a must not only for what is reported but mostly what is not reported including Rattner and Bloomberg shifting some of Bloomberg's money to the Cayman Islands. If Steve Rattner gets banned by the SEC for three years than it will mean a third shift for king Mike Bloomberg's 5 billion Steve Rattner is suppose to be money managing. You see the first shift was out of Quadrangle because denial is Steve Rattner's cocaine, along with every corrupt politico and Rattner thought Quadrangle would take the fall not him. Wrong. So denial still in play, Rattner shifts Mike's 5 billion to a new created company. If and when Steve Rattner gets banned by the SEC the money will have to be shifted yet again or Rattner can sell the company yet again like he did Quadrangle but will Mike Bloomberg still be able to stand by his man? Ditto for the owners of The New York Times and The New York Daily news both very good friends and I believe both have had their money managed by Rattner. The Vanity Fair title "The Smartest Guy in The Room" but truly if you look at the big picture, perhaps the dumbest. From Albany to City Hall denial is the new crack cocaine. How ironic under Mike Bloomberg heroin is cheaper to buy and sell than cigarettes but denial is the new crack cocaine -- because it's free... most used and abused by politicians, rich people and celebrities in trouble with the law or those lucky so far to avoid getting busted.
Anyway, if you just want to think happy thoughts than stick to the Lady Gaga article and enjoy. Vanity Fair even smells delicious. For depressed people you might want to read Christopher Hitchens piece on his battle with cancer. There is a photo of him and it is shocking.
Lady Gaga may be the way to go. Her meteoric success is something I think she is still trying to absorb but one thing is very clear. She loves her fans and deeply appreciates them. Gaga spends time with them...there are peeks "peaks"" in to this love affair in the fun piece. This issue of Vanity Fair has something for almost everybody.
