One Person Who Doesn't Think Lady Gaga Is a Good Example: Anna Wintoureksarran
While we wonder if Lady Gaga might actually be a good example for young kids-what with her open-mindedness and non judgmental attitude, but there is one powerful media figure who disagrees: Anna Wintour. The Vogue editor-in-chief, who interacted with Gaga when the controversial singer performed at Wintour’s Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala in May, was less than impressed.
According to Maureen Callahan, who wrote the Lady Gaga biography, Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga, Wintour was disappointed in Gaga’s pre-performance behavior. “She [Gaga] sort of had a meltdown before she went on and as it was described to me, Anna was really none too pleased with her,” Callahan told RadarOnline. “Anna wasn’t impressed. She thought that she was just sort of behaving like a childish diva and not the professional who was about to perform for her peers; these incredibly famous designers and celebrities.”
Apparently Gaga was demanding, almost didn’t perform, and was summoning the advice and powers of God to fuel her performance. And Wintour simply wasn’t having it. “When you’re dealing with two egos like that, it gets interesting,” Callahan said.
Callahan’s book debuts in bookstores today–perhaps there will be some more clues as to whether or not Gaga should be influencing our kids.
