This story was splashes across the New York Post wood this morning. Here’s Tom McGeveran’s take in this morning’s The Front column:
“Lady Gaga stole my man,” reads the knockout type in the lower-lefthand blue box, with a head shot of Gaga. It seems a local actress was dating an ex of Gaga’s for about a year, and, according to her, the guy went back to Gaga. Internal gags include a description of the jilted lady, who is an actress, as having run “out of Luc.” (The boyfriend’s name is Luc. Get it?) Anyone else want to come out of the woodwork with their minor connections to the pop star? The Post is all ears!
We imagine the appeal of this story is something like the appeal of Taylor Swift in her new video: Gaga’s evil tricks and, as one commenter put it, her “pig” sexual mores, make her unfair competition for any regular working gal, and these tales of injustice must be told.
Hate the Gaga story as I might, I don’t think anyone needs to actually turn to the Georgina Bloomberg story [in the New York Daily News] after seeing it bugged on the front, whereas the reader will have already plunked down his or her 50 cents before getting hosed by this fame-seeking actress inside the Post.
