So on September 18th, 2010, I went to see Lady GaGa in concert. I can't believe I didn't tell you guys sooner about how it went, so here it goes...
I gotta say, the opening act, Semi Precious Weapons, was really Rated R. Every other word the lead singer said was the F word and then she CHANGED ON STAGE. She took off ALL her clothes (I looked away though) and changed. O_o Then at the end she said "parents, don't Semi Precious Weapons because it's offensive. Be glad you're experiencing your children to REAL rock & roll!"
Hmm... if I wasn't already expecting a very explicit show, I sure was now. But to my surprise, Lady GaGa was PG-lady.
After Semi Precious Weapons went off the stage, we had a long wait before Lady GaGa came on. But my mom and I were in just the right position to see the making-of-the-set.
When she finally came on, she was in a "car" singing Just Dance. Then she came out of it with two other people. "Ugh. Now we're going to be late to the Monster Ball!" she turned and faced the crowd after saying that and we clapped as a way of trying to tell her that she already was at the Monster Ball. She continued the game though. "The car crashed and left us in this strange place...."
Speaking of games, the next song she performed was LoveGame.
After that (or one song after that), she said "...Don't leave here loving me more, leave here loving yourself more."
I can't really really remember the song order after that, but I do remember quotes:
"I like (forgot his name) because he likes American g irls, but I also like (forgot his name) because he likes American boys....... sing and embrace your orientation!" *sings Boys Boys Boys*
(talking to the crowd) "Let's see. You want (forgot what she said), you want to have , and you were born this way baby!"
*picks up toy penguin from stage* "Oh look, it's a gay penguin. And he's sad because he wants you to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
"I don't want to bring politics into this, since you're here for music, but in 20 days, the senators will meet to decide on Don't Ask Don't Tell. So if you haven't called already, the number is...... I don't want to be a pain, but there it is."
A giant monster appears to try to destroy Lady GaGa. "Little monsters, save me! Take as many pictures as you can to save me from this fake monster!" Then Paparazzi started.
*has fake blood on* "Little monsters, save me! Clap as much as you can or else I die."
"Jesus, I'm confused. Some people say that you h ate people of a certain group, or sexual orientation. And I bleed in front of over 20,000 people a night, enforcing gay rights. If that's true, then JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY!"
"Oh no, little monsters, it's a twister!"
"Monsters, you make me So Happy I Could Die." (and of course right after that, she performed So Happy I Could Die.)
"...When you're lonely, I'll be lonely too, and this is the fame."
After it was all over, I was sweating so much and walking so slowly, because I overdanced it. XD But it was all worth it! I now also own two GaGa T-Shirts, a glow stick, and a book full of Tour pictures.
I also took some low-quality pictures before the battery ran out (mommy forgot to charge it! -_-)
I must say, much better than my first concert, The Cheetah G irls. I hope to see her again in the future. :D
