Gaga: Middle finger is more NY than a corporate ambush

Lady Gaga brought more attention to yesterday's Mets game than the players themselves when she popped up at Citi Field and proceeded to get photographed flipping the bird to anyone and everyone looking her way.

Many have called the gesture obscene and/or "un-ladylike," but Gaga said on Twitter that she was simply being a New Yorker and showing love for her hometown.

On Friday, she tweeted, "A middle finger is more New York than a corporate ambush. I bleed for my hometown, and I'd die for my fans," followed by, "I guess I'm just a Bronx cheer kind of girl."

The Mets also reportedly issued a statement of apology to Jerry Seinfeld, who was dragged into the situation because Gaga was sent to his luxury box after she began to create a scene.

"We deeply regret that Jerry Seinfeld has been associated with this matter and have apologized to him," the statement reads. "The use of Jerry Seinfeld's suite was unauthorized and unknown to him at the time. We made a quick decision to place Lady Gaga and her group in the private suite because of issues related to her visit."

    Thank you for an additional fantastic post. Where else could anybody get that kind of data in these kinds of a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I'm around the look for these details.

    relax, everyone! you don't HAVE to like her, and no, this will not be the last publicity stunt at City field, and yes, flipping the finger is kind of NY, and oh, if you want to really educate your kids don't take them to ball games; maybe try theater, opera, travel abroad, nature hiking, read a book to them.

      GAGGING ON YOUR REPLY! That has nothing to do with educating kids. Baseball is a "fun" sport. It is a family affair. What that was is a perversion of anything good. If we do not get a grip on morality, we are strangling ourselves. What we are teaching children is that this is ok and acceptable. As for our kids, one is in college and the other is on the honor roll. I guess baseball games aren't that bad after all, huh?

    We can all be a bit eccentric, this is being taken out of context, you can't hold her accoutable, just because she is famous when in fact you are upset at the fact that she is. She is a very talented person with guts... she is paying her dues so let the girl have a beer and scratch her balls a little, point being she has a pair. 😀

      Is it out of context or is it down right nasty? How would you like it if she undressed in front of your kids and paraded around in the public the way that she did? If she wants to do that at her own shows, then by all means go ahead. I'm surprised that she was not charged for Indecent Exposure. Or do we even know what that means anymore?

    It is a very sad life that this girl leads. These types of celebrities feed off of publicity and it fuels their popularity. What's worse is that people watch and buy her stuff. People without real talent have to have a gimmick. Her gimmick is her raunchy lifestyle and flamboyant demeanor. Some people have their children watching this woman and when they're children mimic her, they think it's cute. It's a pathetic waste of life! Chasing money and fame this way will only lead her down the same road as people like Janis Joplin. The only difference is that Janis could sing!

    I have already posted my feelings about GaGa on Facebook and I aired my views to HLN through CNN. So here it is for those who have not seen my post.
    I cant believe that HLN is all for Lady GaGa flipping the bird in a bra and panties at a Mets Game. What a retard Lady GaGa is. She is not even a good entertainer unless you call flipping the bird in a bra and panties entertainment.
    Who does she thinks she is .... going to a Mets game or any game or anywhere in public and stripping down to bra and panties and flipping the bird to anyone she pleases? She is a trashy dork and should fall into the Hall Of Shame... not Fame.

    the fact that this is actual news is pathetic. does anyone actually care? it's just like the media to make a big deal about NOTHING. the fact that people are actually offended by this is completely idiotic. I'm not even a fan of gaga, but comon people, you've got to be kidding me.

    Lady Gaga used to be Tim Lively. I was his roomate. He was very flamboyant, as was I, but he was a great lover. He (she) forgot about me and how much I helped him become famous. He named himself Gaga after the fact that everytime we made coitus, he was gagging on me. Do a little research before you buy into this media travesty.

    Nada Lady Gagme sez: "I guess I'm just a Bronx cheer kind of girl."

    Well I'm a Bronx cheer kinda guy you stupid s lut! As soon as the rest of the koolaid drinkin dopes figure out that you're nothing but a flash hound – with each new episode designed for max exposure – they will finally see what I see and lose interest.

    So now I'm waving to you Beotch Gagme. Guess which finger.

      Wow in response to the, "she is young, she is suppose to be crazy" all I have to say is that she is young true, but she should be more respectful and realize that all ages attends these games.....well, I guess at least she wore more clothes than just a pair of panties and a bra

    She's disgusting and vile in every way so this behavior doesn't surprise me. I don't listen to her music and I change the station when she comes on. I'm hoping her 15 minutes ends soon.

    Precisely, Laura. If she were a true "Bronx cheer girl" she'd be at Yankee Stadium, not the Mets. And I'd be po'd if I were Seinfeld. He paid for that box, not Lady Gaga, and he shouldn't be having people shoved into his box because they are behaving inappropriately. If any other fan did what she was doing, they'd be kicked out, not shown to a private box.

    If I were constantly hounded by the press, I'd get a little uptight, too... it's just a simple gesture, that if made by anyone else, wouldn't draw a second glance. Rude, perhaps... actual news? I don't think so. Next!

      She's not exactly being "hounded by the press" if she decides to wear a leather bikini to a baseball game, something that is guaranteed to draw attention whether you're famous or not. She's not stupid, she clearly knew what she was doing. But of course, mindless Lady Gaga drones will defend anything and everything she does, when they would just as easily crucify another celeb for doing the same.

      I agree with r- if you are a fan of gaga, fine, but must you defend every thing she does? she doesn't need you to justify what she does, she knows EXACTLY what she is doing, a major part of her image is "shocking" people. She's not as innocent as many fans like you make her out to be.

      People that are in the entertainment industry are well aware of the exposure side. Trust me, this woman loves attention and it's getting really old. People can be creative and not have to be products nor enter the entertainment industry. She knew what she was doing and she still does.

    I am sure Jerry is cool with sharing his box for a quick minute. As far as lady Gaga sure she is a super freak but I actually enjoy a few of her songs...I am 47 born in Manhattan,raised in Queens NY.
