Jerry Seinfeld Gets It Right on “Lady” Gaga Skank

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

Good on Jerry. That scuzzy slattern gives ho’s a bad name!

Graty Slapchop on June 23, 2010 at 6:12 pm

jerry asked how the finger got to be “the finger”…

goes back to english longbowmen. whenever the french would carpture an english longbowman, they would cut off his middle finger so that he would never be able to draw a bowstring again. so whenever the english would line up against the french, the english archers would flip the french the bird to show they could still draw a bow.

and lady gaga is a total skank.

I didn’t admire Seinfeld much when I heard how he’d picked up school girl Shoshana Lonstein in Central Park while she was sporting her private girls’ school uniform one day with some classmates. I also didn’t admire him much when it turned out that he’d had an affair with the “fresh off her honeymoon newlywed” Nina Sklar Neiderlander a/k/a Jessica Seinfeld whom he apparently met at a pricey gym her new hubby’s purchased her a new membership to.

    Double Oy!

    He is beyond redemption!

P.S. My take btw is that the guy is just pissed she was in “his” box. When you encroach on territory you should not be encroaching on, you tend to be very sensitive about that being done to you I suspect.

Moi on June 23, 2010 at 6:58 pm

I hated the show Seinfeld and felt it was the most overrated comedy in history. That being said, Lady Gaga is a prime example of an entertainer who relies far too much on controversy and not enough on talent. Good for Jerry to call her out.

Richard on June 23, 2010 at 7:24 pm

I have never laughed at anything Jerry Seinfeld has ever said, nor have I ever been able to get through more than 10 minutes of that TV show, where the canned laughter always seemed to be going off at full volume even if nothing was happening on the screen.

To me, Lady Gaga is nothing but this face that keeps appearing on the cover of tabloids that I see when I’m standing in line at the grocery store. Other than that, I really have no idea who she is or what she does, but my show business instincts tell me that much like Nicole Richie, nobody will be talking (or thinking) about her a year from now.

Daniel H on June 23, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    Daniel H.:

    I agree–it boggles my mind that people consider Seinfeld or his show funny, or that it was on for so many years. Yawn!

    Lady Gaga isn’t the most original artist out there, but she *is* a talented singer/songwriter, and she’s not going away anytime soon.

    Scott Spiegel on June 23, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Oh–and when the most offensive thing you’ve done in a two-year career is give someone the finger, I’d say you’re doing pretty well, compared to most of the trashy 20-something celebrities out there nowadays.

    Scott Spiegel on June 23, 2010 at 8:51 pm

Speaking of fashion, Hamas is outraged by a fashion show in Beit Sahour. It turns out for the Religion Of Peace, Western fashion is… verboten! And I’m not talking about skimpy bikinis or tart hooker clothes. I’m talking about yes, haute couture!

If a woman isn’t wearing a burqa, she shouldn’t been seen. That’s how extreme they are.

NormanF on June 23, 2010 at 9:48 pm

Scanning the web, there’s one commentator in some forum who has a more appropriate moniker for this overrated, talentless skank: “Lady Garbage.”

ConcernedPatriot on June 23, 2010 at 10:12 pm

Lady Gaga has tested positive for Lupus (as stated on Larry King). This will probably shorten her lifespan and career. She probably just wants as much publicity as she can get, whenever she can get it.

btw, JS is right!

Lee in IL on June 23, 2010 at 10:13 pm

I thought Seinfeld was pretty funny, although the show lacked likeable characters (main reason I never watched Friends) no one that you’d really want to hang with, you know? Mostly annoying people that you laugh at but want to avoid. And the finale really, really sucked egg.
Lady Gaga, no matter what anyone says, looks like a man in drag…..lalalalaLola…..about as feminine as dOprah, yuck!

theShadow on June 23, 2010 at 10:40 pm

Drudge report has funny pics of the dumb bitch falling on her ass at Heathrow airport because of those weird shoes she wears. And, of course she had a cell phone in her hand.

Well the New York Mets do stink as a team. Many People I know are embarrased to be Mets fans.

Matthew on June 24, 2010 at 12:19 am

Okay everybody, take a deep breath (including you Debbie!)…

I’ll admit Lady Gaga is a publicity-seeking, overtly-sexual, fashion-disaster…BUT….

The girl (she’s just 24) is NOT WITHOUT TALENT!!!

She writes nearly ALL her own songs, sings better than most pop princesses out there (Miley Cyrus?) and plays the piano quite well. If you’ve never heard her sing the “acoustic” versions of some of her songs, you wouldn’t know how talented she is. She’s also written hits for many other groups out there that you know very well, BEFORE she got famous!!

What I can’t stand is people who can’t sing a lick, or play any instrument at all, much less WRITE lyrics and compose a super-hit pop song…bashing someone who is a HUGE SUCCESS, just because they don’t like her music or what she wears!!!

Lady Gaga has worked her butt-off (no pun there at all!) to get where she is today. Yes, she is influenced by those who’ve come before her (madonna, bowie, etc.) but so what! There’s very little that is truly “original” in today’s pop universe…but Lady Gaga is doing things HER WAY and that way is original enough for most people…even if it disturbs the heck out of most all of you!!! Which…btw, is what most great artists have ALWAYS done at the beginning of a LONG and SUCCESSFUL career…made “fools” of themselves and gotten ridiculed for it (Bowie, Elton John, Madonna…)

And don’t think I’m a big Gaga fan…because I’m not! I’m a 57 yr. male, who has been a music fan most all his life and knows that someone who has had hit after hit after hit is NOT a talentless fluke.

Lady Gaga will be around for years and years…get used to it, people!

Dave on June 24, 2010 at 12:44 am

    Thank you for the press release. There are plenty of talented people who do not act like small children at 24, and any talent that Stefani Germanotta has does not justify such conduct. Lady Gaga is in the same category as Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton in terms of talent and personality. At the rate she is going, she will be very much like Amy Winehouse in the not too distant future. I would say that your fawning support of this person tells us more about you than you would probably like.

    Worry01 on June 24, 2010 at 1:25 am

Dave, you bore me as much as lady gagas b.s.

samurai on June 24, 2010 at 1:01 am

I’m surprised Seinfeld is fussing about this.

Shy Guy on June 24, 2010 at 2:57 am

Dave, I refuse to believe a damn word you just said about yourself. I don’t give a damn if she has 10% talent. This piece of white trash is only glorifed because of her acts and her uninteresting music.

Why don’t you kiss her dirty ass if you ever catch her in person.

Squirrel3D on June 24, 2010 at 3:24 am

Once again, a Jew, or Jews give up territory and get no respect or thanks for it.

Do I sense a pattern here, or am I just…

P. Aaron on June 24, 2010 at 3:36 am

Debbie, I recently read that Jessica Seinfeld WON her suit. Now if that was the power of her celebrity husband fine but saying she lost is not accurate. Legal commentary, please.

mk750 on June 24, 2010 at 4:43 am

    According to Reuters.com, she alleged Jessica was guilty of copyright infringement, trademark infringement and trademark dilution. But ultimately, ***the judge ruled that the two works were different enough to dismiss the claims:*** “Stockpiling vegetable purees for covert use in children’s food is an idea that cannot be copyrighted.”

    No one said life was fair. What a travesty!

    As goes Israel - so goes the World on June 24, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Dave, are you sure you aren’t some militant queer?! Lady Gaga is a talentless waste of all human matter everywhere. And I do not believe her name is Stefani. I think she is a TRANNY!!! I mean in pics I have seen of her…SHE IS FLAT CHESTED!

Jerry is right on this. And she even behaved poorly at a Yankees game making the pinstripes look VERY weak.


Bob Porrazzo on June 24, 2010 at 5:36 am

Gaga is nothing more than a talentless attention whore. She uses the crazy wardrobe to take attention away from the fact she has no talent. She couldn’t even give her sister the benefit of one day, upstaging the entire event at her sister’s high school graduation recently. She needs to go away. NOW!What is even more ridiculous is the people who find her appealing. The taste in the country is in the toilet.

Musiccgirl on June 24, 2010 at 9:20 am

I am no fan of Jerry as a person but the remark was hilarious. I only have generalized idea of who that GAGA idiot even is.

Brian Cuban on June 24, 2010 at 9:49 am

Lady Gaga is just another overrated celebrity who is cheerfully
degrading the society, doing her best to downgrade religion and culture. So she writes her own songs, they are pretty mediocre. We live in a strange nation, it’s strange that Obama still has 42-43% approval rating, it’s strange that Jennifer Anniston is on so many mag covers, it’s strange that Lady Gaga is considered some kind of sensation, it’s strange
that so many folks think Arizona is some kind of fascist state
for trying to enforce laws that the Feds refuse to do. Are we
in the Twilight Zone?

Daniel K on June 24, 2010 at 9:57 am

Rest assured, no one will be listening to Lady Gaga’s music in 10 years. If we’re lucky… her music will be passe in 5.

Janne on June 24, 2010 at 11:59 am

    When I think of real musical talent, I think of K.T. Tunstall. The Scottish singer writes her own music, plays guitar, does her own sound effects on stage and sings with passion while hardly wearing any makeup and hardly any controversy.

    Richard on June 24, 2010 at 8:53 pm

Funny…I knew I would get flack here from those who don’t like Lady Gaga…but it’s really not that suprising since most here don’t even know her music or have followed her career.

Bottomline…you don’t win award after award, gold record after gold record, get to sing on stage with the likes of Sting, Elton John, and Bruce Springsteen without some (large)modicum of talent…the public (for what it’s worth) has spoken and she is a STAR…period!

Who knows where anyone will be in ten years…but I’ll bet she’ll have had another 5-8 big hits in the next 5 years, easy.

And I’d also bet most here were saying the same thing about Madonna and Bowie when they first got big … it figures.

Anyway, it’s not like she’s some racist, jew-hating, terrorist-plotting, commie-wacko…she’s just a pop star, for heaven’s sake.

Leave the hating for something that REALLY MATTERS!!!

Dave on June 24, 2010 at 12:50 pm

You were not supposed to like the characters on Seinfeld. You are supposed to laugh AT them and enjoy watching them receive their comeuppance. Even their occasional little victories are supposed to be meaningless, of the nature of the crabs in the story who pull down the lone crab trying to escape the trap.

It’s supposed to be a show about nothing.

luagha on June 24, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Dave, take your own advice and take a deep breath.

You think no no talent hacks have hit it big? Uh, Milli Vanilli, remember them? Or, are you counting lip synch as a talent?

How do you trash Miley Cyrus who fits the big star qualities you listed?

“What I can’t stand is people who can’t sing a lick, or play any instrument at all, much less WRITE lyrics and compose a super-hit pop song…bashing someone who is a HUGE SUCCESS,..”

It’s called having an opinion, Dave. If you are an adult as you claim maybe you have heard of one. It’s quite common.

Our culture is full of untalented people becoming famous. Britney Spears can’t sing and she’s big time.

Ahem, speaking of, what makes you Mr. Culture Pope? What’s your big qualifications to lecture eveyone on their tastes?

Grow up, Dave.

Jeff_W on June 24, 2010 at 3:13 pm

As for Lady Garbage (love it!), I agree she has some talent. Yeah, she has some nice little dance tunes.

But, I can only take listening and not seeing her. I get so tired of the phony “I’m weird!!!!” image she constantly pushes. I know the gays and stupid bimbo girls think it’s edgy but to me it just takes away from the music. Just like Debbie said, it’s Madonna Marketing 101.

That’s what I loathe about Lady Garbage, everything about her is so fake and I hate phony stunts trying to fool me into liking someone. That’s why I don’t watch reality shows, everything is so cliche’ and scripted.

Whatever, I’m sure her stunt made her and her fans’ day because she pulled the wool over the gullible public’s eyes yet again with another phony publicity stunt.

Jeff_W on June 24, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Yeah, but what did she do to garner so much hate? Did she show support for muslims or do or say something anti-israel? Is she a flotilla supporter? Does her skimpy outfits, or bad singing or flipping off some heckler infringe upon your rights as Americans?

Who cares if she flipped someone off or wears outlandish skimpy outfits – what, are you people sharia law supporters now? Do you think that American women need to be “modest” and covered or they’re worthy of your derision and hatred? Sounds like you people spewing hate against this girl should have no problem adapting to sharia law once it takes hold here. You mindless haters are no better than muslims.

here’s a helpful hint on how things work in America – if something bothers you, but doesn’t infringe upon your liberty, just ignore it. You don’t have to go on a hate campaign to abolish it just because *you* don’t approve.

DS_ROCKS! on June 24, 2010 at 4:51 pm

Worry01, what is the point of bagging on Amy Winehouse in a thread about Lady Gaga? Winehouse may be a disfunctional drug addled, falling down drunk who dresses like a street hooker and can’t wait to flash her new fake boobs for the paparazi, but the lady can sing.

Richard on June 24, 2010 at 7:59 pm

I too am not a big fan of seinfeld. His wife was with her boyfriend of 8 years. His name was neaderlander of the famous theatre owning family. After 8 years she finally married him and his family paid for a million dollar wedding and and expensive honeymoon. Three months later she wants a divorce.

The papers said she was hanging out at the gym that Seinfeld goes to. May guessed correctly this woman was a gold digger. What many call a typical jewish american princess. Many said that while jerry may have interfered with their marriage. She wanted jerry because it was better to marry a wealthy guy than to marry a guy who has a wealthy family.

After she was divorced she married jerry pretty quickly and had her first child.

As for Seinfeld, he is a big METS fan like me and is always on WFAN since he likes one of the radio hosts named steve sommers. HE is always at the METS games and was doing the game Wednesday night on TV. He talked about Gaga and kind of backpedaled on his coments. Although he said he liked her he hopes she stays out of his private box.

spaceship22 on June 24, 2010 at 11:36 pm

I forgot to mention that Jerry and his wife tried to stiff an orthodox Jewish woman out of her real estate commission. They claimed they saw the house they wanted and bought it without her help. The court ruled she was entitled to her commission because she originally showed them the apartment. The only reason she didn’t come the last time was because they went to see the house on the sabbath.

Also Gaga was a failure under her real name. She had an album and it did very poorly. She only reached stardom after she came up with the lady gaga schtick.

spaceship22 on June 24, 2010 at 11:39 pm

Gaga is publicist’s creation. But, a successful one.

She was a homely girl who found a way to make huge money and attract millions of fans. I admit I like “Poker Face,” but none of the rest. Her fanbase is so weak that her arrogance will cost her some of it.

See her in an early incarnation. She does have stage presence quality. Not much else.


Splank on June 25, 2010 at 12:26 am

Seinfeld is a major dick and about the most unfunny person I can think of. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time. That said, even a major dick like Seinfeld is right now and then.

abob on June 27, 2010 at 4:38 pm

I liked her when she first came out. Her music was fun to listen to. BUT, nobody, not even if its the US president, deserves any type of respect for defacing classic works of art like those Hermes Birkin bags -fake or otherwise- that gaga owns. It’s only a matter of time before she gets labeled a “has been.” I just can’t believe she’s really THAT trashy in real life.

passing thru on August 17, 2010 at 2:10 am

Nobody will read this because this is an old essay but, let me tell you about Seinfeld. My wife and I went to Madison, WI to visit my son’s family. His in-laws were also visiting so, my wife reserved a hotel room in downtown Madison. She was an advertising executive before the Democrat-inspired housing and economic crisis cost her a job so, she made the reservation using her “points” on the concierge level (Hey! We’ve worked hard for decades – so we splurged a bit). Well, when we arrived at the hotel they informed us the entire concierge level had been “booked” and we were given much less comfortable accomodations. I came in after all this and was not aware of what happened until we got into the room at which point, I didn’t care and just wanted to crash.

Anyway, guess who’s in the restaurant the next morning at breakfast – Seinfeld, of course. The liberal “man of the people” had bumped my poor wife off her reservation. When I’d had a couple cups of coffee; I told her, “I’ve got a great idea for ‘Seinfeld’ episode I’d like to pitch to him. ‘You see, Jerry. Some poor middle-aged couple travels 8 hours to se their little granddaughters but, some smart-assed, second-rate comedian snags their upgraded reservation.'” She dissuaded me and, I figured he just wasn’t worth it.

Only a jerk would do something like that and, of course we never went back to that hotel again.
