How many jobs has Lady Gaga created? Let’s see, there are all the dancers, camera people, hair & makeup artists, wig makers, sunglass makers, costume designers, set designers, producers, musicians, back-up singers, lights & technical support, shoe designer/maker, egg maker, egg carriers, bus drivers, public relations folks, managers, CD producers, CD manufacturers, photographer, videographer, paparazzi that follow her, surely more are missing from the list.
Kudos to Lady Gaga, she’s her own little stimulus package. Publicly, let’s ask her if she will continue to create jobs by becoming a clothing designer. Perhaps a telephone hat is not desired except at Kate & William’s anniversary party but a telephone purse walking down at the Haymarket at 10th& P Street in Lincoln, NE would turn a few heads.
While Lady Gaga’s costumes are frequently over the top and bare more than would be acceptable at South Pointe Pavillions, http://www.southpointeshopping.com/stores.asp, it is the same as haute couture fashion shows. Rarely would the average person wear the clothes or the combination from the fashion show on the street but take a watered down version of part of the garment and voila, something wearable!
Lady Gaga’s version of a little black dress is something a lot of people would like if the train was shortened or removed, the coverage of the girls a little higher and the spears turned to grommets or at least something less dangerous. She also has a biker look that from the torso up looks pretty cool. Passing on the hat and glasses that make the outfit look a bit stern and 1950’s German and swapping them for a motorcycle helmet and going for a scenic drive many a biker chick would like this style. She’s really not all that different from Cher or Madonna. They probably all showed the same amount of skin but Lady Gaga added some really tall shoes and multicolored wigs. It shows her sense of humor, her wit, and her choice not to show her complete true self to the public.
So, what do you say Lady Gaga? Add a few hundred more jobs to the US?
