Did you know Semi Precious Weapons are coming to Xcel Energy Center on August 30 & 31? Did you know Lady Gaga will be with them? Yeah, you probably did. It was nice of those guys to let her hitch a ride on tour with them. They’re a great band, and did you know Semi Precious Weapons had an inspirational role in the creation of Borangutan back in 2008 when they played a Tuesday evening show at the 7th Street Entry? No kidding. They’re just one of a few connections I have to Lady Gaga – not personal connections, mind you, but experiential ones.
With Lady Gaga coming to town next week it seems like a good time to lay bare another experiential connection I have to the Fame Monster. That connection is local POP INC artist Brooke Aldridge who I’ve been acquainted with for many years and who possesses distinct Gaga connections of her own. What does Brooke Aldridge have to do with Lady Gaga? The truth is – not much, but there is one important sticking point that makes her connection to Lady Gaga tragically unoriginal. Brooke Aldridge (aka. Lolly Pop) is one of the many beneficiaries of Lady Gaga’s fashion piracy.
