SNL Lady Gaga/Lady Gaga OAD 11/16/13

No thread yet? I didn't think it was so bad...

Cold opening was hi-larious!

When the drug dealer came up to Mayor Ford during the press conference! I about died laughing! So funny!

Then when he went on "60 Minutes?" OMG-I didn't expect that! That was smart and funny!

Lady Gaga's monologue was cute-"I'll take your fake applause..applause...applause..."

Waking up with Kimye was cute-the Kardashian orchestra was funny-triangle, triangle, box of rice, her own hands....

Gaga 50 years hence was surreal but I loved the "Empress Beyonce" line...

I loved the Rose Zone -

Others' thoughts?

I thought Gaga did very well. She clearly had no issues poking fun at herself. Really got into the characters and seemed like she was really enjoying it all. All nicely done. But I didn't really like her first real musical act all that much. Her monologue performance was much better.

Is GaGa GayGay? I honestly don't know. Is that what she means by "Born This Way," or is she just admitting to being kind of strange? Either way, I like her.

I've always dismissed her because of the awful outfits. But I surprised, she's actually got a great voice. Most of the female singers now are so over-processed that you have no idea if they can really sing or not. But I was impressed.

I thought she did a great job hosting. She was very comfortable in the skits and had perfect comedic timing. She was better than many of the actual cast members. You can tell she lives to perform.

I loved the skit with Taran Killam as the snarky speech reviewer. I wonder what the last joke was supposed to be? Something about FDR's Pearl Harbor speech.

Do a search on youtube for her appearance on Howard Stern's show that was IMO her best performance ever. She's amazing on the piano.

She is bisexual, currently dating a man, the song has become an anthem for the LGBTQ community and in larger context anyone who doesn't feel they 'fit in'.

I'm still chuckling at "laser toilet bowl cleaner" from the final sketch.

Yep, I'm not a big fan of most of her songs but she does know how to tickle the ivories and keep you entertained. Forget Britney in Vegas, throw Gaga the $$$ to entertain and draw people!
