Lady Gaga says 'I do' to CNN cameraman

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.

    Last paragraph was unnecessary? It was a fun story and you all ruined it with all your negative comments. What was so wrong...he said absolutely nothing negative. I laughed when I read it. Lighten up!

    Poor cameraman not knowing in what kind of mess he is putting himself. Not knowing whether he will be sleeping with a man or a woman, because until now no one knows what it is! Half man half woman, weird and a total mess in a global time of chaos. These are the last days, just follow doctor David Owuor. God will shake you US for making these evil idols arise!

    I like her new eye makeup application. Conversely, I would like to see her walk in those shoes. Maybe they're more sensible.

    Before everyone gets caught up in all the "originality" of Gaga's meat dress, know that she had a predecessor, a woman artist by the name of Jana Sterbak some 25 years ago. Here's a link:

    Maybe I took it the wrong way, but I think it was kinda rude of her 2 think that you wanted 2 put the ring back on her finger. I would've just handed it 2 her.

      It's a blog post. Posted by a CNN camera man. Which should be pretty apparent if you're paying attention. If you're looking for real news stories written by "professional writers" then perhaps you should stay on the glittery tourist strip of and not wander into the dark alleyways. 😉

    >> Good story except for last un-necessary paragraph
    I don't think the last line is necessary at all... I love my wife too (she's my little bunny 🙂 and I wouldn't know what to do with out her) and I would want to proclaim my love right here too if I was writing this article. It's very romantic!!

    Anyway, I've got a feeling you don't have the qualifications for the "evil Lord Gaga" type. Lady Gaga has, however, gone up several notches in my estimation. She sounds very down to earth and sweet which is very refreshing these days.

      And 24 hours after this, she brought a 10-year-old fan, Maria Aragon, on stage, picked her up and swung her around, sat down at her piano with Maria on her lap, played and sang a duet with her before a sold out crowd in Toronto. She's not only far more down to earth than people realize, she's also much kinder and more compassionate. But that's not what gets the press.

      I don't know if Gollum would be willing to put up with you, but I'm sure Lady Gaga wouldn't give you two minutes of her time. She's too busy to waste it on rude losers like you.
