Lady GaGa was amazing last night. I don't know what more I can say. I must say that she is probably one of the best acts I have ever seen at Lollapalooza. The set, the music, the mood, the choreography, the costumes, the makeup, everything was just so, so perfect. My eyes actually started to well up when she started talking to the crowd. You could tell she was overwhelmed by everything. You could tell that she wanted to cry, but she held it in.
I know some assholes are going to be like, "Oh my gosh, but like, The Strokes are so much better. Fuck Lady GaGa and her pop music." I'm sorry, I love The Strokes, but comparing the two is like comparing apples to oranges. Everyone was engaged. Nobody could take their eyes off of her. Her set was elaborate and flowed really well and it seemed like a lot of people were impressed with her. There were times where John lifted me up and there was so many people flocking to her stage. It was said she had 80,000 people watch her! Now that really says something. There were some cute surprises during the show. I don't know, I had a lot of fun and that's all I care about. Music snobs can go and be bitter jealous haters. That's fine with me.
Another act I must give credit for is Hot Chip. They too, had a really great show. But really, no one compares to GaGa. Can't wait to see her again! I wish everyone could experience The Monster Ball.
