Although I loved the show, “Seinfeld,” I’m not the biggest fan of its creator/star, Jerry Seinfeld. I didn’t like it when his wife plagiarized her cook book, and he savagely attacked the author of the original for suing over the theft. And I didn’t like it when–at a press event–Jerry Seinfeld yelled at me and got angry because I asked him why Hollywood is obsessed with Jews and Judaism, when we are a minority of the U.S. population and want to be left out of it. Plus his new NBC show, “The Marriage Ref,” is soooo annoying.
But Seinfeld is right on target in his comments about that talentless skank, Lady Gaga a/k/a Stefani Germanotta (except for the part where he says she’s “talented”). The first part of her showbiz name just ain’t accurate. Gaga is a creep. She gave fans at a New York Mets game a middle finger salute and otherwise acted like the spoiled, over-rated celeb that she is. And she was rewarded with a stay in Seinfeld’s box at Citi Field. And I’m not ashamed to say it’s schadenfreude that this fashion victim piece of trash fell the other day because she wears those stupid, absurdly high heels and couldn’t walk in them. Seinfeld hit the mark in commenting about it on New York’s WFAN-AM, Monday.
“This woman’s a jerk. I hate her,” Seinfeld said. “I can’t believe they put her in my box that I paid for! You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”
“It’s pathetic,” he added.
Seinfeld, 56, went on to say he was unaware at first that the fishnet stocking- and lingerie-wearing singer was taken to his seats after her public brouhaha.
“She’s a jerk,” he continued. “What is she giving the finger [for]? What’s the finger anyway? Speaking of interesting and new, how old is the finger? How did it even get to be the finger?” . . .
“Get an act,” he said. “Rhinestone bikinis and giving people the finger?”
Right on, Jerry. You’ve restored my respect for you.
Sorry, but there’s nothing interesting, nothing new, nothing original about Lady Gaga. It’s just warmed over, rehashed Madonna badly in need of a nose job.
What a GREAT “Seinfeld” episode this would have made. Kinda like the episode where Elaine wears an Orioles hat to the game . . . on steroids.
