Jerry Seinfeld is right on.
While music execs, the fashion world and fad lovers may be goo-goo over Lady Gaga, Major League Baseball can do with out her. God forbid we follow the steroid era with the Gaga era.
Honestly, I can appreciate the spectacle that Stefani Germotta is, but she’s the last celebrity I would ever hope to see at a baseball game. Jerry Seinfeld made sure everyone, including the crew at the New York Mets Citi Field knew how he felt about her presence in his box with a few choice words.
If you’re curious how Gaga ended up in his private box on June 10th–she flew the bird to several photographers, and scoffed at fans who were interested in her presence. Maybe if she showed up to the game as Stefani Germotta, she wouldn’t have had the “problems” she encountered. I’m sure no one would recognize her if she just showed up in a Mets or Yankees jersey, ball cap and jeans. She really can’t cry foul.
Said Seinfeld, “This woman is a jerk. I hate her. I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for. You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”
Yeah, Jerry, it is the world we’re living in now. We’re greatly confused as to who should be famous vs. infamous. We don’t even realized that the word celebrity suggests a celebrated personality–as in someone to celebrate. So much amazing talent in the world of music and we’re still goofy over smoke and mirrors.
I maintain that people thought Germotta was actually Bruce Springsteen in a wig. I guess it was the studded bra that quickly gave that one away.
