Name Droppings: Going Gaga

Lady Gaga engaged

To a man? 

"Paradegoers came dressed in rainbow tutus and capes, bathing suits and full-leather outfits. Pop music blasted from floats, pumping up the crowd, while a band played songs like Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.”

I feel sorry for Gaga. What will she do when the applause stops?

Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga a perfect pair at Tanglewood

Will she still be slaving away for Satan just to hear the screams?

"Gaga is, at heart, an old-fashioned entertainer much like Bennett, and she’s also Stefani Germanotta, an Italian girl who grew in New York."

Same as ‘Party’ girl Lesley Gore, born Lesley Sue Goldstein.

Lady Gaga and Vince Vaughn

"Neither a hyper intelligent robot nor Vince Vaughn could save the box office this weekend, which was down 38.5 percent from last year, according to estimates from box office firm Rentrak. While Neill Blomkamp’s ‘‘Chappie’’ might have taken the No. 1 spot in its debut, its gross was a modest $13.3 million. Vaughn’s comedy, ‘‘Unfinished Business,’’ fared worse, opening at No. 10 to a dismal $4.8 million. In its second weekend, Will Smith’s ‘‘Focus’’ took second place with $10 million. Fox Searchlight’s retiree comedy ‘‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’’ was third with $8.6 million. (AP)."

He's the Boss:

"Patrons of a Jersey shore bar had a night to remember when Bruce Springsteen gave a surprise show that lasted for nearly two hours. The Boss performed 15 songs Saturday night at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park. He concluded the show with ‘‘Light of Day,’’ which he dedicated to the huge crowd of people watching from the sidewalk outside because they couldn’t get into the packed bar. Springsteen, 65, has long been known for his ‘‘drop-in’’ performances at various establishments in Asbury Park and other Jersey shore hot spots. But the rocker hasn’t done as many surprise appearances in recent years, making the events more special for fans. When he spoke-sang the introduction of his 1982 hit ‘‘Atlantic City’’ at Saturday night’s show, he paused after the line: ‘‘But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.’’ ‘‘Maybe Asbury Park is back?’’ Springsteen said, to cheers."
