10-year-old girl upstages Lady Gaga
The 10-year-old girl whose rendition of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" made her a YouTube sensation joined her idol onstage Thursday night - and stole the show.
Maria Aragon of Winnipeg, Canada, walked onstage to wild cheers from the concert audience at Toronto's Air Canada Centre. Gaga picked her up in a hug and spun her around in the air.
Maria, wearing shiny black tights, a pink top and a tiny leather jacket, then sat on Gaga's lap on the piano bench and poised her fingers over the keyboard.
"I'm really excited that Maria is here today, because Maria represents what this song is all about," Gaga said, according to CNN affiliate CBC . "It's all about the next generation and the future, and no more divisiveness."
Maria began to play "Born This Way," the Gaga song she sang on the YouTube video that has drawn 17.7 million views in 15 days. Gaga worked the pedals. The crowd went insane.
At the end of the song, the little girl thanked the crowd, Lady Gaga and her family and friends.
"I am a 10-year-old girl from Winnipeg, and I came here to sing to you guys, and I hope you enjoyed it," she said.
Gaga was tearful as Maria left the stage.
"Lady Maria from Winnipeg!" the megastar announced.
Maria later returned to the stage for an impromptu dance during the concert's post-midnight encore, CBC reported.
The whirlwind started on February 17, when Gaga saw the video on YouTube and tweeted to her 8.5 million followers: “Can’t stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future.” In the past two weeks, Maria has appeared on "Good Morning America" and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and her video was posted on Perezhilton.com.
“I’m getting kind of tired, but this is for people and people’s entertainment,” Maria told the Toronto Star, which reported her school chums have been asking for her autograph.
“I have a signature, actually. I’ve been practicing it for quite a while because I do art, too. I didn’t know that I would have to sign it for other people, like my supporters.”
Friday morning, Gaga tweeted: “Myself +10 year Old Lady Maria of Winnipeg. She signed my t-shirt, she ate my heart, just like you.”

Yes there should realize the opportunity to RSS commentary, quite simply, CMS is another on the blog.
We are over a decade into the 21st century. Is this as far as the human race has progressed? (well at least as far as one has-been-comic of dubious psychological fitness has progressed) Why does this nobody's opinion matter anyhow? A gay kiss on TV! OMG! It is being shoved down my throat! I am chained to a chair and unable to change the channel. My eyes are propped open with toothpicks and my head is held in a vice so I can't turn away (a la clockwork orange).
wow, most of the people on here dont get it. i garuntee in real life she isnt like that. its called entertaining. look @ all the people before her...mariyln manson for god sakes. he did the same thing. it doesnt matter how talented she is, its entertainment. no different then goingt o the circus or something. in that sense i would definatly say she is way more intelegant then have the people on here cause guess what? shes making millions and well your not!
I know this is a late comment, but the article is incorrect about CBC being an affiliate of CNN. The CBC is a public broadcaster paid by the Canadian Taxpayer. CNN is neither Canadian or a taxpayer in Canada!
Are you kidding? Gaga could be upstaged by a friggin yoyo. Sad that music sales are driven by the shock value of her public appearances. Keep MUSIC alive.
Why, oh, WHY is that child on stage with an adult woman sitting in her UNDERWEAR????? While I agree that she sounded great, the whole thing was disgusting and in poor taste. Sure, she gave a child the chance of a lifetime, and the child shined, however, if this had been an adult MAN and a ten year old BOY.... well, it never would have happened. As a mother (who happens to like Lady Gaga's music) I am appalled and hope that we haven't gotten to the point where civility and decency have been washed from our psyche due to pressure from the "In America we have the right to be Stupid lobby.
Seems this little girl is a better copycat than Gaga.
I agree with @ A Parent. Does anyone know the story about why she wears underwear on stage? It's because she was at a gig before she got a record deal and the audience wasn't listening. She couldn't get their attention & they were all talking. So she took her clothes off and voila! They payed her attention. Did you get that-not because of her music-because she was naked. She is desperate for fame, desperate for attention and everything she does is because of it. It's not a 'feel comfortable in my own skin thing'. Lots of makeup-wigs-and 'outrageous' costumes like a lamp shade? If she didn't care what people thought, she would have continued to sing with clothes on UNTIL her music was good enough to garner the RIGHT attention. Now, she's preaching to kids? Why, because she's famous and supposedly successful? However, look what she had to do to herself? Born this Way? NOOOO WAY! How does she look in the mirror at night? I mean, I have an excellent sense of humor but I find her so transparent. At least Katy Perry laughs at herself & has fun. This one? Nah. Full of herself.
are you sure lady gaga isn't a lesbian. I don't know if i would want my daughter on her lap.
Yaba Daba Doo
Just happen to see this,it is very sad and can't belive it was even allowed to happen.anyone who watches this video will probably get sad its horrible!
I personally dont like gaga she isnt much of a lady an has some serious issues. I am a mom an i would never let a 10 nor 17 yr old near that trash. I respect myself enough to go out lookin like a respectable women. Does she NO. I DONT HATE GAGA. i just think she has no talent an her dressing all freaky like is just to get ppl to focus on her look so they wont pay attention to how fake or bad she sings. does she care how we feel bout her more then likely not she wants to be hated. i admit i have some songs of hers as my ring tones. but trust me its just the melody her voice is not to be heard. k
Lady Gaga is exceptionally talented. She has written songs for many artists, as well writing her own music. Her voice is big and beautiful and in every interview I have seen she is so humble and posesses a sweet disposition. What she has done for this wonderfully gifted little girl is amazing and truely genuine.
Look, just because she sings ans cna play a piano-does not make you talented, or your songs good." The truth hurts, her songs have no harmony or discerning melody. They are fluff non-sense songs. If you say she can play piano on acoustic pieces, then great so can alot of people. Fact is , it is not on her albums, there is nothing different or redeeming about her sound. She is not original, so what is the point if churning out sub- par music that is stuck in all the usual trends. She was discovered because of luck, and because music is so pitiful these days that the songs and music dont really matter. Saying rama whatever a whole bunch of times is merely irritating not talent. If you do not understand this go listen to CSNY or Elton John or Exile on Main street by the Stones
I think that any crazy parents who would let their 10YR old daughter perform like that circus clown that is know as Lady Gaga r completely out of their own minds. There is just no rhyme or reason 4 it 2 happen. I sure hope that this does not bother the little girl phsyology n years 2 come.
Even if you don't believe in the Bible it's completely ridiculous,backwards and against nature for people to be "united" in thinking that it's good to teach our young girls that it's cool to be a word that starts with w and rhymes with door (I put it that way so it gets posted)...but you might realize that if you weren't figuritive eunuchs meaning if you had the brains to think for yourselves and the courage to stand against mass culture. If anyone in Hollywood Miranda Cosgrove's a good role model for young girls.
Sad, a 10 year old girl idolizing Gaga. If this is the future, God help us. Stupid parents who allowed their daughter to be associated with such a circus act as Lady Gaga a.k.a. Dodo-caca.
hate lady gaga sucks
I LOVE God. he is so awesome. lady gaga just cant stand him she has money and all that but she is leading children to the devil aka satan. gaga is really pushing me and my temper thats all i got to say. and u devil worshipers out there take the narrow road not the wide. wide will leave to sin and narrow will leave to the one and only GOD
This maria gurl is way better than that madonna copy catter lady gaga. i love what maria did with gaga's song it was awe$some!!!!!!!!!
She was great
Why is it that certain people cannot spell or say "ask", and instead say "axe"? It sounds totally dumb. Also susan, bible, devil, gathering souls etc. Thanks for the laugh. Try reading a book a little more relevant to modern society, or even just keep quiet if you only have non-sensical comments to make! A belief system is just that – you have to believe based on zero evidence. Why don't you embrace the wonders of the modern world we all live in, and move on from that 1000 year old gibberish?
Damn, people must HATE Lady Gaga for these bad blogs. Yo, trolls, wanna know some good advice? Ahem, Get. A. Life. I'm not a fan, but, hey, Gaga got da' cash, and the girl got her 15 min. of fame? right, right?
Lady gaga is a bad influence for our youth. her songs have hidden messages and she is teaching them to do the wrong thing. her album cover has a pic of her with horns! she is worshiping the devil and all her fans are blind... read the Bible and you will see she is just gathering souls for satan
This girl is amazing.she has a god given talent.I think she will become famous one day and she will be in a song with lady gaga
I'm not a huge fan of Lady Gaga, but I am a musician who has learned to not refer to music I don't like as bad music. I'm not a huge fan of Elvis, but I recognize the importance of his music on the industry. Lady Gaga has revitalized a portion of the industry that's been sleeping since Madonna (appeared) to go into semi-retirement. Gaga is relevant to her fans, interesting, provocative, and frankly, entertaining. Her music is a little 'packaged' but you can't deny, she has style. Not my cup of tea, but then again, I listen to jazz and progressive rock so I'm a bit of a dinosaur. Different tastes for different people? Works for me.
lady gaga is a horrible person and does not truely believe in god. People were no born this way and god doesn't make mistakes but people do : )
Gaga has a WEINER!
I come here to read real news, not lady gaga. let TMZ report such things not CNN.
see this is what is wrong you have people who have nothing better to do than bash on other people due to not enough love when they were a child or the way they were raised obviously not model citizens and never will be but its ok bash all you want all in all you are the ones still sitting at home with a crappy job and a remote in hand on a couch watching famous people make millions for the guts and will to pursue dreams
If I was in a space ship flying by earth and picked up the transmission of this music I would keep right on flying.
Why are people who are less talented then a 10 yr old even considered famous anymore. Shouldn't this trannies 15 minutes of fame over yet.
This she man isn't hard to upstage, if you can sing you can upstage him. He is a lip singer that sold his soul to Satan and the illuminati to be famous. He also thinks that he owns the rights to the word gaga, he's suing a company for making breast milk ice cream because he's jealous he couldn't ever produce milk. He's a man guys.
In my opinion, Bozo The Clown could upstage Gaga, and his make up would be better...
Many of these comments remind me of Madonna in the 80's. Just sayin'
Just love listening to all of you!! she is a person with a great voive and she made one little girl very happy. end of story as far as i am concerned!!
U know lady gaga is manufactured garbage the way CNN is always shoving her down our throats.... the craziest part is ive never even met anyone who likes her...then again I never met a drag queen
ooh, I also looooove the "self-righteous" people who tear apart other people, too!! =) I just think if you want to take the "high road", actually take the high road! That is all 🙂
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! This is hilarious!!! Wow... okay, my opinion, lady GaGa sucks. Bad. But this whatever has got some great business tactics. She (or her marketer) needs to make even more money than they do now because they're brilliant!! She's creepy and ugly yet she's a huge hit!!! That's pretty impressive!! Secondly, people know that the best way to market your product is with little children. You see a little kid, and it's like, aww!! i'll take 2! You don't even know what the product is!!! So brilliant business move to the psycho lady!!
Im friends with maria
A donkey taking a SH!T in your mouth would be more talented than LadyBoy Gaga.
Frankly, I wouldn't know a Lady Gaga tune if a 10-year-old girl from Winnipeg came and sang it to my face. But the fact that Gaga DID let "Lady Maria" come up on stage and do just that...well, that's pretty cool! Best of luck to that rock star AND, especially, to that talented little girl who stole a bunch of hearts!
Sans all the strange outfits and bizarre publicity stunts, I find Gaga's music to be pedestrian. I am not a hater, nor do I have anything against LG. Sure there is talent there, but I just don't see what the big deal is about LG. And by the way: I am not a jealous nobody. I am a very happy (middleclass) husband and father of 2 great kids who loves his life and wouldn't trade with anyone regardless of money or fame.
Were missing the underlying theme here. A 10 year old was copying Lady Gaga. Why is she a role model for anyone? Seriously, between her, Miley Cirus, Brittny Spears, Lindsay Lohan and countless other role models that our young girls look up to, expect lots of inappropriate behavior later in life. Once their teen years hit, they will try even more to follow their idols by preforming like them. Smoking weed and getting drunk, sending nude pictures of themselves to any random Joe, and wanting to ride said Joe's disco stick. These people are not role models and I the parents of this 10 year old girl should be highly ashamed for letting GaGa be one
Honestly I think Lady Gaga represents a lot and I think she's a unique human being with a great talent 4 good music, dance and lyrics, she's her own self and no matter what the next person says about her she continues her thang and I support her 100%
I am so pleased to find out that Miss. GaGa actually has a heart. Outside of hearing her music, everytime I see or hear about this Woman was just negative B.S. Finally... 'She's Alive', She is ALIVE!
She probably always was but it would be nice to see that side of her all THE time.
Justin bieber is a waste of space people won't rember him in 10 years just like n sync
NOT A FAN OF LADY GAGA...... BUT!!!.... those of you calling her untalented have alot to realize. I mean for her to make that much money she must be doing something. People see something different and either complain or say really messed up things. The "haters" are the ones who are paying her bills even more so than her fans, the more times you mention her name the longer she will stay relevant. I mean who are some of you to judge who she is or not none of you know who she is outside the media. I may not be a huge fan but I give her props for being herself. without lady gaga there would be no 10 year old fan singing with her. remember that.
Lady Gaga actually is actually not my cup of tea. But she has my respect as an actual Musician. There are Musicians that had to work their way to fame and airtime through hard work and creativity. Then there are kids like this girl and Justin B. that imitate other originals. Just like any band that only does cover songs at their gigs. They would not get the same respect as those musicians that strike a chord within their peers with actual original music.
I have seriously missed the show everyone is speaking of. Going to have to look it up and watch. Lady Gaga is my goddess! I love her to pieces. She's more than talented. She's herself. Much like me. It's so amusing to let others wonder. There will always be some kind of conflict. Everyone has their own taste. Lady Gaga definately tastes good 2me 🙂 And not only bc im a lesbian. Anyways...*high 5* to mi goddess! Keep up the amazing work and smile even louder for these lil a$$wipes 😉 I love you!!!!! and kudos for writing 'just dance' in 10mins with a hangovr! Totally brilliant.
All this satirical garbage is absolutely worthless and nobody cares. Gaga is a popular artist and just like all the other ones some people like her and some people don't. Either way who cares. Let people follow and support what they like and stop making everything into a societal detrimemt. What a bunch of childish alarmists. That's they way it is, always has been, and always will be.

And someone having more talent than lady gaga is news because, why?
I don't like gaga. She doesn't have enough talent to be successful, without being a freak. However, she is smart enough to recognize a marketable talent. Money! I just hope she doesn't turn a 10yr old into a freak like herself.
I like reading this.all of the ppl who are dissin get a life.there are ppl and kids who read this....duh!anyway luv what she did for the little girl im not a fan of ga ga though.truthfuly she cant sing.
Whats the difference really between bra and panties and a 2 piece swimsuit, jw? people i repeat....get off ur high, perverted horse
A woman in bra and panties with a 10 year old on her lap? yeah, nothing appropriate there....
A woman in ban and panties with a 10 year old on her lap? yeah, nothing appropriate here....
All of you guys are such a trip! what Lady GaGa does and what you say are perfectly different. I don't here you ever judging Beyonce or Rihanna so what makes her different. I have to agree with everyone that says you haters need a life. GaGa is trying to get rid of ppl just like you!! you don't know her personally so who are you to judge? I got so sick and tired of yyour nasty rude and prudent comments!! All ppl who talk bad about others, its only because you wish You were them! i hope u haters shut up!
it doesnt take much to upstage lady gag but maria does have talent
Some of u ppl need to have a psyche evaluation or be arrested for being so crude about a child! i pray none of u with such nasty minds have children
Ok, i read these blogs for entertainment purposes....mainly for the posts bc i have fun reading up on how pathetic some ppls lives must be, but i must say. its a wonder some of u people are not under psyche evaluation or being looked out for by authorities by being so sick towards children. nothing but a wonderful starlet night happened for that little girl! hello, they were on stage in front of god and everyone yet some of ur remarks go way beyond vulgar! i pray none of u with minds like that have children..
I don't understand all the negativity in these comments. First of all, Lady Gaga is very talented. Look up some of her acoustic performances. If that's not talent, especially when compared to most of today's pop stars like Ke$ha, or Katy Perry, and even Taylor Swift, then tell me, which pop star of today actually HAS talent? Because none of those I listed do. Second, I love how you're just ignoring what she did for Maria, and you're just going on about how much you hate her. She could have just left it at that tweet, no one was forcing her to be this nice. I'm not saying everyone has to like her, but she does deserve some respect, at least for the fact that she actually has talent, and because she's done something so nice for a little 10 year old girl (she's done countless other great things, for her fans, and even for some causes/charities, but tbh it'd take too long to list). Sadly, most of you will still not be able to look past the outfits, so I'm sure I'll get tons of replies talking about how someone like her doesn't deserve your respect and can't be talented and blah blah blah. :/
Love the Ladies!!!
No one saw the gush of fluid come out the bottom of the chair? They are both gushers, gaga came quickly and is a squirter!
I DONT BELIEVE MOST OF WHAT I AM READING HERE IS WRITTEN BY PEOPLE PAST PUBERTY. i dont particurlarly like Lady Gaga Or Canadians(and Dont Give A Damn If I Spelled That Wrong) I Couldnt Tell You If Lady Gaga Has A Winkie Or Not. I Can Tell You That She Must Be Doing Something Right,look At The Bank She Has Got. Mainly My Interest Is That For Unselfish Reasons,this Lady Gaga Has Taken The World By Storm,and Wasnt Too Busy To Take The Time To Give A 10 Yr Old Kid A Chance To Shine Her Light On The World. I Swear That Most Of The People Hatin On Lady Gaga Sound Like Parents Of Kids That Arent As Gifted As That Little Canuk Girl. STOP HATING PPL,AND GROW UP.
Does anyone else find it kinda disturbing that a grown woman in nothing but her underwear is straddling a 10 year old child?
Hate to say it not a fan of LADY GAGA but some of you people need to get a life instead of writing nasty Blogs leave the HE/SHE ALONE worry about yourself yaknow its called get a life -Remember people in glass houses shouldnt throw stones
GOOD THING I DONT LIVE IN A GLASS HOUSE.
I LIVE UNDER A BRIDGE-DUH!
I wonder while that girl was sitting on her lap if anything popped up?
Lady Gaga wears boxer-briefs and has a di c k.
Lady Gaga is just another English pop music drag queen look alike. But all you Americans spend all your money on her music and videos and make her what she is. Either stop spending your money or quit complaining. If noone bought her stuff then she wouldnt be what she is today. So thank yall very much for creating a monster. Yeah and because of yall shes gagging all the way to the bank with fists full of cash.
Wow! Upstaged the Gaga Guy? NOT hard to do! Any 10 yr. old could!!!!!!!!!
If this was a male singer in his underwear with a 10 year old boy on his lap, he'd probably be in prison by now.
maria? great! lady gaga?? who cares
Why do you say Toronto Canada? You don't say Los Angeles United States. Is it because the average Merican is too stupid to know where Toronto is? Just wondering
Goo Goo Ga Ga Goo Goo Ga Ga, Sjhe won funne man. So stopid I dwear hahe
Just as Eric Cartman's Poker Face surpassed the Gaga version. The Bliix remix destroys all. Youtube search: "Poke Her Face Bliix"
Anybody thought about the health issue before letting the little girl sit on Gaga's lap when she has nothing but the bikini on?
Well it is not that hard to upstage Lady Gaga....when will everyone realize that most of these musicians that you love are no talent hacks. Auto-Tune and synth....you call that music. So sad....this country is going in the hole. American Idol $ucks. I have played with some of the people that have made it in the top 3, and they have no talent.
Very gracious on the part of L. Gaga! Too many entertainers have huge egos that don't allow others to share in their fame."
So naive so so naive, Gaga knows how to use even kids for her personal gain. This is the state of America today right down the tubes
Hence the reason why music and our kids are going down the tubes fast
If lady kaka was born that way, that must mean she was born a talentless doosh. Gotta hate her!
I didn't realize garbage could walk and talk until lady kaka came along. She is so ugly all she could do was make herself even fuglier to sell her average music skills. What a hideous little turd she is, and all of you who love her are idiotic butt licking turd sukkers.
You guys are just saying the same things that have been said about pretty well every pop star that's come along since Elvis.
It's the flavor-of-the-month, kiddies. Styles change, tastes change...but talent doesn't change. Talent finds a way to stay relevant..talent finds a way to stay fresh. Ask KISS or Elton John...they had gimmicks initially – but they found a way to hang around.. If Ga-Ga is g-good...she's stick around. If not...well, there's always another spectacle in the wings.
Hat's off to the little Winnipegger! I'm originally from West Kildonan but now reside in Washington DC. Thanks for your talent, inspiration, and putting The Peg on the map – proving once again that despite the wasteland that it is, its people have a lot of spirit.
Wasteland? Don't ever come back!
Very gracious on the part of L. Gaga! Too many entertainers have huge egos that don't allow others to share in their fame.
I love Lady Gaga. She has more talent in her little finger than most of the artists today. Lady Gaga is more than just a musician, she is a performance artist.
She rocked, but this 'Born this Way' vid was truly the one to capture my heart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULXzZXgcCh4
Love that vid! Brilliant – completely!!!
she so nasty. she take my money from young girls. i hope she go away soon. ooooooooh selena
Strange to play the song on piano, when the actual recording is mostly percussion and synth.
She definitely improvised a lot of those chords based on the vocal melody.
Man why did I move out of nyc? I cant believe she used to play the elbow room.
doesnt take much to upstage this trash. i have more talaint sittin on the throne every mornin doin my thing. she has made her zillions off of 8 year old girls, so now she can fade into oblivion like sheila e.
she was born that way
Lady gaga is hot.
No need to get so nasty if you do not like Lady Gaga! I know you and Rev. Pleps minions have nothing better to do with yourselves but spew hate and lies! If you don't like Gaga that's fine, but there are ten of us who do like and respect her for every one of you! HA!
My cat using the litter box would upstage Lady Gaga goo goo!
I have nothing to say about her aesthetic choices, but if Stefani Germanotta (I refuse to humor her with that asinine and blasphemous pseudonym; Queen does not deserve this kind of shame) would stop trying to be such an "artistic ingenue" for five minutes, she might finally write some REAL music, not this mainstream, club scene, auto-tuned crap. I will give her the respect her talent deserves when she finally writes something original.
Who is this Lady Gaga dude? He's incredibly scary-looking and he sure can't sing! Yikes!
Lady Gag Gag
Gotta love all the people spewing hate at haters! Lady Gaga doesn't care about any of you little monsters, but she sure loves your money!
Way to go Lady Gaga....you are quite the Lady! I could be your mother and I may not understand all your music and the way you dress but at least you are not living in a closet like the people ( some on this blog) who secretly want to be more like you. Thank you for making my day with your selfless act for Maria ( for whom it is just the begining) God Bless you and others like you
Little Maria, wow is all I can say!
This thread should be a long list of praise for the little girl, It's sad that instead there are all these Lady Gaga haters and supporters posting. All that negative energy generating more negative energy! Try this instead:
"I'm not a lady GaGa fan but little Maria is..."
When a 10 year old girl upstages you, doesn't that mean that you're really not that talented to begin with?
I dont know Victor, how does it feel?
Very classy and good role-model of Lady Gaga to respond this way towards her young fan. Whatever us 'old folks' may think of her music and costume (is she really any more outrageous than KISS were in their day? Hardly. Then again I find her tunes a little catchy so I'm not exactly a critic) – she showed very good character in encouraging young Maria.
Regardless if you like Lady Gaga or not, it was very kind of her to allow this 10year old girl on stage with her!!! How many other stars are willing to share the spotlight???
you know, it never ceases to amaze and amuse me as to how many trolls there are on these comments. Lady Gaga obviously has talent, she sells music and does it well, Dont hate on her for having money in these tight times, vent it somewhere ele. Now normally an artist pays homage to artists of the past for their success, its not too often one looks ahead to the future, for that I tip my hat to Lady Gaga, and to Maria Aragon, she was just amazing, and I do agree, she could very well be a musician in the future. Now to you trolls, loose your venom elsewhere, cause it really isnt productive or cute.
Am not a GaGa fan, but anyone saying she lacks talent needs to watch this video from 'before she was Gaga' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM51qOpwcIM
Thanks! Seeing this, I can tell that she could have made a successful career out of being a cabaret singer, too...but I enjoy her wild side. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to see both !
I think Lady Gaga is very talented and brings something unique to the table. Her songs make my hip moves and she is pretty as well. She is setting a good example by allowing this little girl tosing with her. This little girl may or may not become famous, but at least Lady G put her name out there. It shows that her fame didn't turn her into a monster. I seriously doubt that you haters have any talent, let alone any campassion to help a child out. So honelstly, if you don't like her then get a life!!
Its amazing .it a miracale.
*yawn* lady blah blah making 'news' again. next story will be the 10year old discovers she's lesbian because she looked up to ...it?
Wait a minute...I was at that concert. I'm pretty sure it was Bieber sitting Gaga's lap.
I couldn't name a single song from Lady Gaga but I give her credit for being considerate and self confident enough to give this young girl a chance to shine. Probably not a lot of other artists and performers that would be willing to do it!
Don't like her songs. But gotta admit she's unique. NORMAL = BORING. That's why she's famous. She's willing to step out of the NORM. Still, I don't like her songs.
I'm not the biggest gaga fan, but I haven't heard of any other singers giving up part of their stage show for a 10 yr old fan, so I thank her for giving a Peg girl the opportunityto showcase herself. My only hope is that someone has also prepared Maria when the media bubble to bursts. She's very talented and I wish her all the best, but the attention she's getting will end. Hopefully she's ready for that moment.
What other Star in recent memory has taken the time to let a child live their dream? When was the last time anyone LET someone upstage them? Wether or not you like her music, fashion, or physical features her message is one everyone should have! Be who you are and love everyone. Get over yourselves. Instead of complaining about her why don't you find something constructive to do to make someone elses life happier
Lady Gaga is laughing all the way to the bank.
Haters will be haters of Gaga.. Most haters will return to the dull lives they live after reading this post.
Girl was born that way, Gaga was manufactured that way.
Who cares about Lady Gaga. That little girl is very talented and brave to go out in front of all those people and play her little heart out. WOW!
Articles like this are ridiculous. "Aww, a little girl played music on stage with a celebrity, how cute." Do you think we're all 5 years old here?
Apparently the article was compelling enough to make you blog about it. Just sayin...
It's too bad a story has to have blood in it for you to find it interesting.
said the moron who read the article. Richard, just go away you useless postule.
Haters abound. Sad.
While I don't care for GaGa I find it quite amusing to see all the bashing. Must be a lot of unhappy people out there who have to make themselves feel better by putting someone else down.
Woman who wears meat suit is upstaged by small child NOT wearing a meat suit (just a meat cover jacket)
However, regardless of the insanity of this singer (or whatever) It must have been amazing for this kid to get up on stage, sing and play the piano...
One thing for sure – A 10 year old that can play the piano by ear and sing in front of a large crowd has DEFINATELY got talent...
they both rock and thanks Lady Gaga for giving this young girl an opportunity to showcase her talent. Hoping that Maria further her career with humility. Good Luck.
I'm sorry her video is NOT mind blowing at all. Mediocre. Sure she can sing better than me and yeah she's only 10 but she's not with 17 million + hits.
The video with Bud Dwyer didnt get million of hits but it sure was mind blowing
Some day you'll have a kid and when they try to do anything I want you to abruptly stop them unless you feel they are going to be a professional in that field some day.
WOW are you ever a ignorant self-absorbed piece of feces. Glad to know your judgement is so on target. Go back to your cave with your worthless ignorant opinion. Daddy sure didnt love you enough.
If Lady Gaga was a no talented hack then why would this cute little girl be singing her songs? Lady Gaga is an inspiration to this girl and look what creation has become of it. You guys cant read an article and simply be inspired by a young girl living the high life because of something as simple as posting a video of herself performing. You want to make this about her looks? I'm 24 years old and my time in junior high Justin Timberlake was the popular guy to hate.. now it's Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga. Some day you people will grow up and realize how petty it is to find a trendy person to hate.
Last sentence wasn't clear.. it's become trendy to hate Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber. Maybe you should start thinking for yourselves and judge people on your own opinions and not a trend. Anyways that's all.
My only issue with Lady Gaga is that she seems very much a copycat. Her outfits and her acts remind me of stuff I saw from Grace Jones and Madonna back in the 80s. When she comes up with something original then I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.
Way to go Lady Gaga.................class act!
I am a huge GaGa fan and I understand everyone has their opinions from thinking she's a man to a non-talented, fame seeking artist. Truth be told, she is a very talented artist. She puts on a great show. I know people bash her fans and stupid and uneducated. I am in my Masters program and am aiming to get pursue a Ph.D. People will always have their opinions, and the only way for them to express it is to bash the artist herself. I love her and always will.
Such mean spirited people posting on this story. Lady Gaga & Maria ROCK. Kindness and goodwill look good on the two of them.
I'm guessing that the hateful posts are all one person, a troll that likes to talk to themselves.
I resemble that remark.
Yes our little Canuck girl is very impressive:) Look out Justin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really hope none of you are parents because this is the kind of ugliness that breeds bully and insecure people.
Why the extra 'a' at the end of her name (and I am not talking about Maria)?
I really hope none of you are parents because this is the kind of ugliness that breeds bully and insecure people. Kudos to Lady Gaga for her efforts and yes, she is talented.
I am so shocked. Lady GaGa is talented but if my baby sitter showed up in her underwear with freaky makeup and, I don't know.... is that blood smeared on her midsection, and said, "Oh, I'm just going to sit your little girl on my lap and sing with her...." I'd be calling 911 in a big hurry. It is amazing that she has so little respect for herself as 1) a human being and 2) a woman that she presents herself this way. She further disrespects each of us and especially that 10 year old girl for not putting on some clothes and taking herself seriously as an artist and let her music stand up on its own. As a society, we have become so quick to buy into the hype and few stop to think what the consequences are. I am not a GaGa hater I am just amazed at what we have come to accept as "okay".
Parent, I suggest you speak for yourself because I do not feel that Lady Gaga's choice of fashion is a reflection of me or any other female human on earth particularly as I've taught my children that we shouldn't judge people based on how they look. Gaga encourages others to be confident in their own skin, and to respect and love others. She's not seen with a different paramour every other day, she hasn't been photographed doing drugs, and she hasn't been arrested. Off the top of my head, I can think of several other young ladies who are/were specifically marketed to pre-teens and tweens like Maria and are guilty of offences far worse than wearing wacky/tacky fashions. Kudos to Gaga for making little Maria's decade!
What nasty comments about a singer...and someone who is doing what she can so that kids can be accepted for who they are. I really hope none of you are parents because this is the kind of ugliness that breeds bully and insecure people. Kudos to Lady Gaga for her efforts and yes, she is talented.
Nicely said Angel Eyes. You're obviously all intrigued enough to either read about her or listen to her music. She's done something for this little girl and others that not many entertainers would consider. Like her or not, try and remember that RESPECT is the only thing that matters. Try a little kindness and the world might just be a better place.
AMEN! I think that Lady GaGa (as a personality and a brand) is a brilliant marketing idea. I think the artist herself is smart enough to realize what sells and she has the talent to pull it off. I mean really. If she didn't have any talent then she'd just look like any other crazy loon – but she does it with such style.
I also agree that she is looking to try and show people that we're all the same on some level. We all eat, breathe, love, hurt, laugh... even if we don't LOOK the same... could you imagine how boring and "flat" the world would be without those little differences? Embrace diversity and a thirst for knowledge of a different culture so we're educated and not intimidated!
I think that is a great role model for young people – male or female!
She stole the show because she has talent and Gaga doesn't!! Maybe the kid should tour with her.... might draw a bigger crowd.
yes, not an ounce of talent compared to you........barbara. go away.
well, at least Gaga has a heart in this post. Can't hate her too much for giving up the stage to a 10 year old who stole the show.
not a fan of Lady Gaga – but well said!
You nailed it. I don't know squat about Lady Gaga and have never heard her music, but anybody who'll make that happen for a 10 year old kid has to have more dimensions than your average pop star.
Totally agree...a lot more narcissistic entertainers out there...she took this girl under her meat-wing and let her have her day of glory. You can not like gaga but she definitely has talent. You've obviously never seen the stuff before she created a 'character' for her shows.
She made that lil girl a star in 1 night.... And you can't see her power! I'm not a pop fan but from what I see 17.7 million hits TV appearances She has Star power now.... "SUCKERS"
For all you folks who continue to bash the likes of Lady Gaga and others, take a good hard look in the mirror yourselves. She's actually a very intelligent human being and stands for unity.......something you all should take lessons on.
YAH BRO LADY GAGA SINGLE HANDILY REPLEADED DONT AXE DONT TELL
Judging by her supporters, hopefully, she will focus on literacy and grammar next!
@ Raging – There are just as many bad-spelling-bad-grammar non-supporters on this board as there are bad-spelling-bad-grammar supporters. Let's just face facts. The internet has revealed the real ignorance of society in our generation.
Hate to break it to you – not just our generation.
So intelligent people wear meat dresses...if thats intelligence to you then take a hard look for yourself in that same mirror...and quit defending her like were talking about your mom and let people express how much lady caca sux truly to those with REAL intelligence
This girl is WAY better than that nontalented Lady Gaga!
Gaga is actually very talented.
I like her a whole lot better than Gaga.
Gaga is quite talented. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I find it amusing that commenters with no talent or popularity at all get so jealous. She's an entertainer folks. If you don't like her style then read about and comment on someone you care about.
Winnipeg trivia – Winnie the pooh was named after a bear in Winnipeg.
Actually, Winnie-the-Pooh was named after a black bear that the creator's son saw at the London Zoo (and subsequently named his own teddy bear after). The bear at the London Zoo was donated by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn during WWI. Lieutenant Colebourn purchased the bear in Ontario, while en route to England, and named the bear after his hometown – Winnipeg.
To be even more precise – Winnipeg was Lieutenant Colebourn's adopted hometown, he was actually born in England.
To paraphrase the leader of the group, "Smashing Pumpkins" the music industry was DESTROYED when they began catering to teen and pre-teen girls who have absolutely NO idea what good music is.
Me too!! I loved Maria's version of the song MUCH BETTER than Lady Gaga's!!!
Richard, and apparently Billy Corgan, don't know very much about the history of pop/rock music. Screaming teen girls were the ones buying 45's of Ricky Nelson and Frankie Avalon(and Elvis, then the Beatles) long before most of us were born. And the record companies sell to whoever is buying, especially now... There is plenty of excellent music out there that isnt featured in CNN entertainment blogs. Go listen to some...
I like Gaga and her music. She is the current version of Madonna with the fun whacky outfits and chenningans.. It seems every generation in pop culture has one. In my own 60's generation it was Cher Bono.
The music industry has been marketing to young girls since the young Frank Sinatra days (probably before, but I know all of the screaming crowds of teeny boppers and swooning young girls really took off in the 1940s. Who do you think made Elvis and the Beatles the megastars they became? How about MJ? Sorry, I appreciate the Smashing Pumpkins musical talent, but they're an alternative band that by definition is not a good fit for sustained top ten billboard charts. Pop music is fueled and sustained by the its base - millions of young girls. Nothing new here.
Gaga makes the time and effort to encourage a young girl...and all you get on this forum is small minded criticism. ...I am thinkin most of these comments are comin from fat @ss beatches eating twinkies sitting in thier dirty underwear in front of their financed note book in thier low end trailer trash heavily mortgaged mobile home while thier idiot husbands are out listening to Toby Keith fart his way through some red neck ballad about drinking beer in thier favorite truck stop.
I'll bet Madonna does at this point too.
Lady gag gag is a vatican warlock assassin with tigers blood.
I think at least half of us agree with you.....:)
