Going to Paris to shoot an interview with Lady Gaga makes for a good Facebook status update in its own right, but what happened in the 10 seconds as I went to put on her microphone made that update more interesting.
You see, I'm not sure but.... Lady Gaga and I may be married.
Okay, fine, not really - but here's what happened.
As Lady Gaga and fashion designer Nicola Formichetti (he designed Lady Gaga's famous "meat" dress) came in for our interview and I went to put their microphones on them, Lady Gaga's sparkly ring flew off her hand and settled into the corner. Being the gallant person that I am, I went and picked it up for her.
I was just going to hand it back to her, but as I approached, she stuck her hand out with her fingers extended. I thought for a second, and then asked, "Which finger?"
She indicated her middle finger and so I placed the ring back on her hand.
At that point she looked at me, smiled, fluttered her eyelashes a bit and said, "I do."
I smiled back and would have laughed, but I knew we were on a time crunch so I quickly set about putting on her microphone.
It was only later after the interview was over and we were packing up that I got to chuckle about it. When I revealed that the Lady herself had offered her hand, some questioned if marriage would make me "Lord Gaga." (It has a nice Sith Lord sound to it, like I am part of the brethren of Lord Vader, don't you think?)
My sister even admitted that even though she loved my wife, having Lady Gaga as a sister-in-law for one evening would be kind of fun.
Yes, that's right - I'm already taken. Sorry, Lady Gaga - as nice as it was that you said "I do," I'm already in love with my wife.
