Gaga of Oz

Lady Gaga has continued to promote APPLAUSE and I have to tell you, I am loving this whole era! From her stellar iTunes Festival performance (I vote ManiCure for the next single please!) to her latest performance on Good Morning America, it’s fun, it’s campy and it’s pop! I checked out what some of the blogs had to say about her Wizard of Oz themed performance on GMA this morning, particularly, OhNoTheyDidnt, and of course, the reviews were mixed. In my opinion, it was genius! Criticize her all you want but you cannot deny that she gives her all in these performances and does what any good popstar is supposed to do… put on a show. Check out her performance and tell me what you think!

A Word on Princess Diana

I usually try to stay away from any sad or depressing stories on my blog. I like to keep it positive and uplifting but every now and then a story will come up or something will catch my attention that might not always be in that vein. In today’s case, I wanted to briefly take a moment to remember Diana, Princess of Wales, who passed away on August 31st, 1997.  I really cannot believe it has been 16 years. I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was fascinated by her for most of my childhood. I did all of my school reports on her and have read every book and seen every documentary.  She just radiated something I can’t even find words for.

She was such an inspiring woman and truly left such a light behind. She didn’t just the change the face of the British monarchy, she changed the world.  RIP Princess Diana, always in our hearts.
