Lady Gaga, You Are No Lady to Me!

Trying to achieve that "Cool Mother" award, I purchased Lady Gaga tickets for my teenage daughters for Christmas. Lady Gaga was going to perform at the Fox Theater, and I envisioned my daughters and me watching a somewhat entertaining singer perform while I sipped champagne in my velvet theater chair, with my antique opera glasses, at the beautifully restored Fox Theater in Detroit. I figured that I could handle screaming teenagers from the comfort of my front row balcony seat (and this was of course after my car was valet parked right outside the door). Surely, a civilized way to view any artist I thought!

An alarming email was received this evening around 8pm. Lady Gaga has moved venues to Joe Louis Arena. Joe Louis is where the Detroit Red Wings Hockey team play. My Fox theater tickets were cancelled and I have to repurchase (with a secret code) new tickets to sit hard chairs in a cold ice arena. I have to do this at precisely 5pm tomorrow evening and I was not planning on being home!! Ms. Gaga, it seems rude to change your venue or for a better word, "greed" may be driving your decision to ruin my perfect evening.

I will reluctantly take my daughters and have to park on the 18th floor of the structure, walk in the freezing cold up 70 stairs and go into the mob to see Lady Gaga. My civilized dream is over!!

So, sorry Lady Gaga, you are no lady to me because I am going from

TO THIS:

And I assure you that they do not sell champagne by the glass here!!!

This is too funny! She moved her concert location in Orlando too. {weird} Snuggle up and sneak some champagne in! :o)

It seems like she would surely enjoy the first theatre since its a lot "more her", if you know what I mean. She seems very eclectic and the first venue seems to fit her and you much better!

That would be annoying!

That's pretty strange that they moved the location. I've never heard of that happening.

I can't take my girls to see her. They ask far too many questions about the R rated lyrics to her songs and I don't want to explain any of them. If anyone has a good clean explaination for "I want to take a ride on your disco stick" let me know...until then...

That is not cool. Well, it will be freezing, but still not cool.

I am laughing so hard at this post. I can hear me saying, "NO WAY! I'm not going now. I don't do uncomfortable!" Bless your heart! Happy New Year to you!
