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.
Little bit true. I never heard about Lady GaGa before this performance.
More delusions from Donald Trump....someday people will see him for the snake oil salesman that he is.
be quiet toupee head
LOLOLOL He's insane. xD
Here we go again; this TOUPEE hair piece CIRCUS IDIOT.
Im surprised he doesnt take credit for the internet as well but that was claimed already by another wacko
I have this picture of the two of them side by side, but I still can't determine who is the bigger freak show. Hmm.
BREAKING NEWS! Trump had hand in Big Bang! Film at 11:00.
That will stay with me forever Donald.
Why would anyone take credit for her? It's like taking credit for the steaming dog pile in my front yard.
F Trump!!! I'm with team Paul!!! Ron Paul that is!
I've always disliked him. Just for the minescule chance he's right, I absolutely hate him now.
Just like Hassellhoff takes credit for bringing down the Wall because of his sad excuse for a concert on it...
So a show that had fewer than 6 million viewers and is regarded as an anachronism by what would be regarded as core Lady Gaga fans made Lady Gaga's career. Trump is, as usual, a self-agrandizing buffon.
Anything that looks good in a skirt Trump wants?
I never watch these pagaents, but I am a Gaga fan. I promise, it's not because of Trump.
He probably claims he could sh!t gold bricks! His hair is a rat's nest – crawling with baby rats!
Yeah. Thanks a lot for "Gaga".
We sure needed that.
Now who do we thank (blame) for Rapp music?
And how do we make Rapp music go away?
His hair style looks like he shaved it off a Yorkshire terriers as$.
She looks fat in that video.
once again I ask who is this man and why is he saying such terrible things about me?
I listened to her songs on YouTube. I really believe I had at least something to do with her success.
Chuck Norris answers to the Donald
You are so wrong Chuckie Baby anwsers to Noone
Donald Trump, please do America a favor and drop dead or go away!!!
I wonder how he really looks without his fake hair! Hmmmmmmmmm! His kids must be embarrassed of him or afraid of him!
This disgusting racist bandwagon jumper needs to just disappear entirely from the media machine. The Apprentice needs to be axed.
HAVE YOU NOTICE DONALD TRUMP STAYS IN THE NEWS FOR HIS STUPIED COMMENTS! HE LOVES TO CRACK ON OUR PRESIDENT! DONALD TRUMP GO WORK ON YOUR MARRAIGE. shut up and do your hair!
And this is news, HOW? come on, cnn. You can do better than this!
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.
Just a load his mom shouldve swallowed.
Now that's funny !!!! I don't care who you are
Come on Trump!! Lady Gaga didn't have to be on ur show to become famous. She is a great Artist, and a very creative Entertainer.
He's a carnival barker promoting his brand again. Throw this ploy in the same PR garbage can as talk of running for president. He's looking for the Gaga vote...
Whatever the hell is that thing sitting on the trumpter's head? A bird nest? A piece carpet or what? Even trump himself won't take credit for mess sitting on top of his scalp, I don't think?
Trump must have a joy stick controlling her every dance move behind stage... lol
Trump also designed the Pentagon and Niagra Falls. How dare we simpletons question his "brillance."
now i have another reason to despise him
send in the clowns... Trump clown that is.
and what happened to the artists from the other years? where are they now? is Trump going to take credit for their failures?
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?
like Trump were of had her on if he didn't think he was the one to benefit. get real trump. she was on every TV event she could get on at that time.
Lady GaGa should point out that while she was relatively an unknown he is such a pathetic joke all he could get was an unknown. He is lucky she breathed relevance into his dirty old man party he calls a talent contest.
I am not a fan of Lady GaGa but I dislike this sick sack of human filth called Donald Dump a hella lot more. He and his unjustified ego are murdering America.
Lol. Not a fan of hers but I'm sure she would still be where she is today without him. She would have made herself known one way or another.
Lada Gaga blows and so does The Donald... nuff said.
well ...he needed to do something for the talentless crew he assembled for the " pagent". Lady GG was well on her way before the trumpster got his hooks into her.......Donny grow up and get rid of the comb over.
Trump sounds as if he is proud of what he did. If he is in fact responsible for unleashing the attention hound on the public, he should receive fifty lashes and no less.
He has at least something to do with the economic downturn.
I don't care for her hair color. It's a weird blonde gray mix. She should just stick with her natural color.
nancy i'm sure he's reall worried about your comment...you get tough girl.
The one and only reason I'm here on this list is to dis that fool Drump. What a stupid and egotistical fool.
BTW, Drump means Dumb Trump, otherwise known as Idiot.
Lady Gaga is a freak WHO CARES
Nope, not your imagination.
I am sure he jerks off on her ... that's probably what he is trying to get ... to convince her to bang him .. you know ... after all he needs some fame boost, he is slipping into nobodiness
Trump is rich with no class – Gaga is rich with loads of class, as tacky as her persona may be.
Trump belongs at the dump. As for Gaga, she was born that way.
Suits always want to take credit for "making" artists, but suits are tone-deaf, and profiting from the artists' work is their only motive. Sometimes they "only" rip them off. Sometimes they go as far as pimping them to death. Charlie don't surf.
Isd it just my impression with these two, or are cebrities getting sleezier?
The Donald just lost a few points in my book for that one. I would never admit responsibility for that mess.
He talks nonsense ,his big ego and egomaniac self is outrageous,he talk about how much he hates China and all the jobs they are taking from Americans,and guess what? he buy and use chinese products what a liar,a man who insults a woman(Rossie Donell) is not a real man.Besides if he wants to run for President he has to remember he is a cheater ,he cheated at Ivanna , a cheater ,a liar we don't want this guy for our President for sure!
Maria, Not to defend the Donald, but Rosie ain't a real woman any more than he's a real man. That whole exchange between these two was the celebrity equivalent of a Hollywood cat fight. Some name calling, some more name calling, a couple of air kisses, have your people call my people and we'll do lunch and, botta boom, botta bing, all is hunky dory again. Everytime either of these two idiots opens their mouth the IQ of the entire world drops a few points.
The only thing we really ever got from Trump is how NOT to comb your hair!
he should be fired if he is responsible for bringing her into show buisiness.. aside from being very homely looking her music is horrible.
The fact that anybody likes or listens to lady garbage is beyond me. I can't wait til she gets pushed aside like britney spears, christina agulara, jessica simpson, ashlee simpson, mandy moore, and kesha.
Nobody likes or listens to?? Tell that to her accountant and bank (s). I'm ready for Social Security and I think she's great. Get out of your rocking chair and boogie a little.
I beleive Mr trump discovered the universe..if I'm not mistaken?
It has always been on the sly that the Donald is Gay! Just look at those lips and that rag-do!!! Don't take no African genius to realize it!!!
So donald is to blame for lady gaga with her adams apple and tucked back sack.
Gaga's First TV appearance was the LOGO's NEW NOW NEXT AWARDS in 2008! Sorry TRUMP, It wasnt you, it was the GAYS!
Thank you, Donald, for all your contributions to society. I'm particularly impressed with this meat wearing hag Gaga.
No, Gaga should thank Madonna.
Trump is a jerk because it stays soft even when he's hard.
I didn't know he wrote books??
Now now, Donald's a nice boy...at least the old rugkin doesn't use/need toilet tissue,right?
The man is completely full of it and has nothing better to do with his time.
At it again comb over?
I would say Trump is an idiot, but I don't like to put people up on a pedestal. I will just leave him at the level he belongs.
That should have been "ATTACHED to his head"...but then again, it actually sounds better the way I wrote it.
I'm sure Trump "truly believes" a lot of things...he no doubt believes that none of us have noticed that his hair isn't actually attacked to his head.
ANd he also had Heidi MOntage and others who careers went no where . . .
What an ego? I'm sure she would have roiled in obscurity and not had all of the other hits had that not happened? What a ridiculous statement.
Trump want everyone to thank him, but he never thanked his dad for all the money and businesses he left him. Trump, I think it's time to thank your dad before you lose them all.
Lmao, Kaylee, before 2008, I had never even heard the name before. If not for that damn pageant, SHE would have fallen into obscurity.
Ummm. I hate to tell you this, but she had a song writing career before she was an entertainer. Not only that, there were lots of other stars backing her. She would have gotten gigs. Trump is a moron who thinks he did every thing. And no one watches Miss America anymore. It sucks.
I made Ivanka
when Obama is re-elected, I'm sure he'll take credit for that too.
yep he probably will, so sad some Republicans even adore him and seek his endorsement
Wow, I can't imagine why he would want to take the blame for her career.
Whoever gave us Lady Caca should be executed.
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!
...in a perfect world.
I'm not a Gaga follower... but... Wasn't she very popular way before 2008?
Nope, it was late 2008 when she started out, officially...The Fame album released in Sept. 2008...... According to Donald Trump, if you're not a huge success or a billionaire, you're nothing... can you imagine what he'd do to all us working slobs in this country if he ever got into office? Shudder to think..........
Serious? I was in Europe for 10 months in 2006 & 2007, and she was all over radio stations...
no. the Just Dance single came out in April 2008. her first album came out in Aug 2008.
Did they transplant hair from his bottoks to his head? It's a masterpiece!
Buttocks. Or as Forrest Gump would say 'BUT-tocks'.
The sad thing is, that so called "serious" potential leaders of the free world have accepted to appear in a debate with this retard. It just makes a mockery of what has become politics in this country.
The New York Seconds also reported that Mr. Donald Tramp said he helpt navigate the Mayflower, and that without his skills, it would not have reached the Americas
This guy has an ego that is unbelievable!!!
OMG...is there anything that man doesn't claim to be a part of? Republicians are showing that they are cowards to allow Trump to even BE there!!! I'm sure at the end The Donald will claim HE won! GOP...you are slowing losing you base due to STUPID decisions. And don't even ask me about Newt (love child of a Cabbbage Patch kid) GAG.....
He will try to buy the naming rights to the white house.
Thank you Sir Trump for continuing to be _the_ shining example of humility. Where would the world be if you didn't have the financial capacity to teach all of us untouchables what it takes to be the master of the universe. We are all just bleating sheep awaiting yet another opportunity to read, watch and hear of your ever important contributions to our society and world as a whole.
Why don't he also take a credit for drunken Fakih Miss USA?
This is actually in the news. I can hear myself getting dumber.
N now that Newt is d front runner...hereeeee Donald....so I guess he'll soon take credit 4 his current poll ratings
So true!!!!! So true!!!!
Trump is trailer trash. I don't understand why the media keeps giving him the attention he craves. Gaga is a class act. Something Trump would never recoginize.
"Donald Trump created Chuck Norris."
best comment hands down
I knew it!
Only one person cried when Chuck Norris was born and that was the doctor.... no one slaps Chuck Norris.
NBC should fire the Miss Universe Pageant
THE TRUMP IS WAY BEYON EGO.
He is getting nuttier and nuttier as time goes on! I guess that's one of the symptoms of narcissism.
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.
I heard today he also created the Universe and God answers to him.
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.
Lol I think even your cat had more to do with gaga being famous than Trump did.
Trump is so delusional , he thinks he is source of all that is good and great in the universe !!!! He's just another egomaniac with a huge check book . And ....... Lady Gaga has way better hair .
I read........"According to Politico and The Washington Post, Donald Trump writes in his new book ....."
That's when I vomited.
When i see a picture of him i vomit
NO ONE CARES ABOUT MS ANYTHING PAJENTS AT ALL
This just in: The Donald's face seen on toast. Trump now claims to be the REAL father of Jesus Christ.
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.
ya he made her and the hair comb over is her idea lol u fool donald the dump trump fool
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
Trump is a neocon stooge. Guy needs to shut up.
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.
Well, he DOES think he's God, doesn't he?
Yes. He would claim he was really John the Baptist, and with him and the baptism, Jesus would have faded away into obscurity.
Um, ok no.
Oh shut your mouth, Donald! It's not all about you!!
She wasnt very known before that granted he didntdiscover her but he did push her carrier before anyone else cared???
I found my lost underwear and Donald helped me find it.
yea donald shut up for once.
Trump would take credit for the wheel if he thought he could get away with it.
LOL–give him time!! He's certainly old enough :)
Fan of Gaga or not, this guy is delusional.
Huhuhuh hi boys and girls....Donald gave me my first televisión show yuk yuk yuk, all i had to do was kill enough monkeys to make his hair piece yuk yuk yuk what a deal huhuhuhuh yuk yuk yuk.
Regardless of if this is the truth... Kill trump!!! KILL HIM NOW!!! Or else he will release Gaga V 2.0 upon the world and everything we know will be destroyed!!! The end is near!!! We must stop Trump before he kills us all!!!
I agree! Although I do think trumpf is like waaayyy beyond that at this point – perhaps a certified Nut Case???
Once again, Trump proves to be completely delusional!
What doesn't Donald take credit for?
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!
Finally we know who to blame for that obsenity called lady gaga. Fat, obnoxious but mostly insipid. They certainly are a pair, entertainments monument to bad taste!
joseph ERIC Fisk is dangerous and deluded
