Lady Gaga Rocks New York, Gives Shout Out to Liza Minnelli and Marisa Tomei
Lady Gaga professed her love for New York City, Liza Minnelli, and Marisa Tomei during her concert at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night.
Lady Gaga certainly has a sweet spot for her hometown of New York City — she made that very clear Tuesday night when perfoming at Madison Square Garden. In between stellar performances of her hit songs like “Bad Romance” and “Telephone,” the singer made reference to taking the L train, going to class at NYU, and believing in all her “Little New York Monsters.”
Thanks to got2b, we were able to enjoy the vivacious concert and test drive the latest products from the new got2b Rockin’ It collection (which includes Encore Hold Hairspray, Dry Shampoo, and Gel, available in stores this month), in a private suite high above thousands of screaming Gaga fans. For a concert as loud, crazy, and costume-filled as Gaga’s Monster Ball, we can see why rock-proof hair products are so necessary!
For starters, the girl can move. And she can definitely sing, which she proved during her performance of a new track off her upcoming album, “Born This Way,” called “Speechless.” She dedicated the song to all the “drunken a**holes in my life,” as well as Liza Minnelli and Marisa Tomei, who happened to be sitting in the audience.
“In my singing class at Tisch, my teacher would tell me, ‘You’re never going to be the blonde, the ingenue, the star. You’re too brunette, and you’re too ethnic,'” Gaga recalled. “And I’d say, ‘What about Liza?'”
She continued, “In acting class, my teacher would hand me scripts from parts that Marisa had played, and they’d say, ‘It’s because you’re ballsy.’ So, thank you Marisa, for playing the only roles I’d ever want to play.”
Here she is performing part of the song, “Speechless”:
As if that didn’t bring the house down, Gaga ended the night with an explosive performance of her new hit, “Born This Way.” We have to hand it to the Lady, she certainly knows how to get her city on its feet!
