Lady Gaga's a surfer?

If there was one hobby you’d never guess Lady Gaga would be into, it would probably be surfing. But ever the enigma, the pop star was snapped by TMZ catching waves in a black bikini on Tuesday.

"Yeah, that's me," the singer tweeted along with a photo on Thursday. "No heels, baby."

Gaga donned a standard wetsuit and teeny bikini to take on the surf in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Guess she figured a meat dress wouldn’t go over too well with sharks.

Gaga is getting back to work soon; she’s set to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 24.

    Yep she's a surfer all right. Just like I'm an astronaut because I looked at the moon and ate some space food at the Smithsonian.

    Who knew anybody still listened to Gaga? The same dull thud-thud-thud Eurodisco garbage, over and over and over many times can you listen to it? How many times can you shell out the $$$ for basically the same recording, just so she can fly off for a month long vacation in Mexico and then taunt you with tweeted pics of her idyllic lifestyle?

    You can surf all you want after long as you don't mind rupturing spinal discs every time you hit a wave. If you wait until you're 50, the insides of your discs will have hardened and then it's safer to get back on the board (but then the rest of your joints are giving out). Trust me. I know.

Why cant they do some good and get rid o this waste of life. As a musican as well as being from a family of musicans I get very annoyed when ppl think what she does is lk "new" or whatever, it all sounds lk dumb 80s pop music. I give credit wher its due and yes she can play piano pretty well but it dont take much talent to wear a steak and say u wer picked on for being weird. She is weird, damn weird! No wonder she got picked on. Can u imagine being in school w this girl. I was picked on alot by kids cuz I was into art and music but hey get over it ur 26 act lk it!
