Lady Gaga's MSG shows to air on HBO. How will she shock us?
Image Credit: Cliff Lipson/CBSHBO picked the ideal moment to announce its plans to air Lady Gaga’s upcoming New York concerts. Anyone who saw her eggs-ellent theatrical performance at Sunday night’s Grammys will be inclined to tune in for the pure, simply WTF-factor. HBO’s concert event, Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden, which will air May 7, will tape Feb. 21 and 22 at MSG. “Lady Gaga is the single most exciting music talent on the scene today,” said HBO Entertainment president, Sue Naegle. “We’re especially thrilled that she’ll be creating unique new elements for the special that will make the show an even more memorable experience for our viewers.”
Unique new elements! But what can she possibly do to one-up herself and keep people gaga? Will she honor Madonna’s 1990 Blond Ambition HBO special and don a conical brassiere? Will she duet with Elton John, with both of them dressed as lawn gnomes? Or will she shock all her little monsters by mildly sitting at her piano, wearing a pair of lazy-Saturday sweatpants as she sings?
Seriously. Can Lady Gaga do anything at this point to surprise us? And isn’t half the fun watching to see her try?
