Trump takes credit for Lady Gaga's stardom?

According to Politico and The Washington Post, Donald Trump writes in his new book that he helped make Lady Gaga “a big star.”

In “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again,” the mogul muses, "maybe she became a star because I put her on the Miss Universe Pageant. It’s very possible, who knows what would have happened without it, because she caused a sensation.”

In case you didn’t catch that particular beauty competition, Lady Gaga performed at the 2008 Miss Universe Pageant. A latex-clad Mother Monster sang her hit “Just Dance” as contestants shook their stuff in bikinis.

Trump, 65, adds of the pop star’s current fame, “I really believe I had at least something to do with it."

“Time to Get Tough” hits shelves this week.

    I have to admit that when I watched Miss Universe 2008 as a 21-year-old native Southern Californian and Lady Gaga was introduced as an internationally
    renowned singer, I had never heard of her or her songs aired in California. It's true that the pageant is not widely viewed in the US as it was in the past, but it is increasingly
    watched overseas where others may perceive it as popular American entertainment or now have a contestant representing their country. I'm sure Lady Gaga was known by a number of people prior to her Miss Universe performance, but it is also not unlikely that she became increasingly known internationally and domestically post-Miss Universe.

    First, yes, Trump has created jobs. Many, with his business, which can't be hurting the economy. Despite the downturn, he employs people. And people are employed for his terrible shows. So, at least there is some lasting good from the next in the "rich old white men" group. Second, leave his hair alone; so he has no dignity. He can buy and sell dignity, as a member of the group our founding fathers started: see prior. And, I'd be horrified to actually have to sit, with a straight face, and admit to the hot mess that is Lady Gaga. I give credit where it's due, and it's not to her music. But I'm fairly certain that when she was wearing that dress made of meat, it was just to hide the sausage underneath.

    Heard that "The Don" has a new show coming out that he calls "The Apprenti." He was touting it on an interview about his moderating a Republican debate. Apparently the show will use kids instead of adults in this spin-off of The Apprentice. So now he's going to start using child labor to make even more money while the poor kids are plastered all over the "idiots lantern" making nothing probably except being exploited. And what's he going to do, make them sell lemonade and then say "You're fired?" Kids don't need to be doing that crap, just like they don't need to be on these so called reality shows like that little kid modeling show. Hurts the kids.

    Anyway, this guy needs to quit taking credit for everything. Has he created jobs?

    Trump no longer makes any money from his own real-estate activities, instead, he licenses his name to developers who know that there are fools who will pay more to live in a building because it has "Trump" on it. The way to defund Trump is to start a "Spit on Trump" campaign. Whenever you see a building, hotel, casino etc. with "Trump on it, just spit in the street in front of it. Once people know that putting "trump" on a building will produce river of spit out front, he will lose his last source of income other than being a TV host. Without any illusion of being a successful businessman, that should fail too, and we will be free of this blowhard's idiocy!

    Sure, Donald, because everyone watches the Miss Universe Pageant! It's more popular than the Super Bowl... I think it's more like Lady Gaga rescued the Pageant from going into obscurity forever.

    "I in fact, control the waves in the ocean," said Donald Trump. Poseidan could not be reached for a comment.

    Oh Donnie. You are hilarious! No one watches your silly pageants, you big silly! You had as much to do with Gaga's fame as my cat did.

    She didn't get to super stardom until after that. He's got a point. Look at her. She is heavy in the legs and she doesn't have many moves....Not like what she has now. Like him or not, he can make you or break you.

      Of course NONE of her improvement from early on is due at all to her own work. Nope. It's all been Trump all along.

      I'm not much of a Gaga fan, but to claim credit like this just seems silly.

      @Lewis: Guess again you fool! Trump is a total self centered arrogant flake with zero class – one look at his ultra uber dumb hair style should clue you in right there...

      He can't make or break anything. The guy is a human dog and pony show. He claims he is far more rich, more powerful and more important than he actually is. He sued a guy that exposed his financial background and how much he is actually worth.
      And someone needs to tell him to either lay off the fake tanner or ease up on the makeup b/c every time I see him on tv he looks like a 60 year male version of Snooki.

    That pageant seems to get a lot of acts before they become famous. Gaga was one, NSYNC and Jonas Brothers are other examples. I don't think this is always the reason why they become big but the pageant does reach a lot of people internationally even though it isn't popular in the US

      Couldnt agree more :) He needs to realize everything in this world that has become a multi-million dollar business does not mean he is the cause of it because of a suggestion he has made or a foot in the door for someone. ! ! You have your own $$$ use your own 14k gold toilet paper and shove it!

    If Trump wore a cross he would he would lay claim to Jesus.On the other hand, he can have full credit for that hair of his,

      I'm pretty sure he would claim thathe's more important and more powerful, so doesn't need Jesus. He makes me sick.

      Yes. He would claim he was really John the Baptist, and with him and the baptism, Jesus would have faded away into obscurity.

      He takes credit for Lady GaGa?! If anything he should say he takes the BLAME for GaGA! I personally believe she stole the whole shock thing from Madonna and that GaGa's 15 minutes i hope will be over soon! Either way, Trump is a pmpous egotistical idiot who should keep quiet!
