Lady GaGa Superfan Infiltrates Holy Backstage Area, Steals, And Blogs About It
What do you do if you are a Lady GaGa superfan who has been hired to be a crew member for a couple of days during her Australian tour? Steal stuff and blog about it, of course!
An Oh No They Didn’t! member was hired to be a part of the temporary crew in Wollongong, Australia during Holy Lady GaGa’s tour. Naturally, the lucky little gossip couldn’t help himself from posting about his experience. Apparently, he had second thoughts about blabbing to the whole world about his privileged information because the account is now accessible to members only. Luckily, Gawker grabbed the entire entry beforehand. The account in its entirety is posted below:
So I’ve been reading ontd for about 9 months or so and am a big fan, and actually have something I think is worth posting, But I’ve applied to be a member and its not working, my username is lucause but I don’t care if it’s posted on somebody else’s account. I sent this out to 2 of the most recent contributors in the lady gaga tag and the “tip us” email.
Crew Member for Lady Gaga
I worked as a crew member for a Gaga concert in Wollongong, Australia a couple of days and it was quite an experience. Out of like 50 people a friend and I was hand chosen by one of her handlers to help her assistants (Kelly/Kia/Brandon I think their names were) to set up Gaga’s dressing room. I had to get her white leather lounges out of containers, set up her table (it had a guitar in it with glass over it), fill her humidifiers and some other jobs like setting up her tv. When her assistants were out of the room I managed to get a picture :)
What I didnt get was this naked mannequin with only a gas mask and a sketch of gaga sticky taped to the belly, and like 20 cases in the hallway that were wardrobe cases. Some of which were open, with costumes exposed that I had to stalkerishly touch. Like a blue jacket with Asian character over it, and a cream baseball jersey with spikes all over it. (I recognised it and found a picture when I got home)
Some of the other stuff I did in the morning was setting up this creepy fish monster with tentacles, I got a photo on the truck but got cursed at by the homophobic hillbilly in charge.
10 Hours later my friends and I come back for the bump out shift and we have to wait at the gate underneath the venue in the tunnel, Her car was like 3 metres away (like 10 feet for those metrically challenged) from me and I saw a glimpse of her head when she got in it, and then she opened the door on my side and just sat there looking at us/ME!!! for about 20 seconds :), I did a huge wave in the air, But I was like the only person that waved out of all the crew and she didn’t wave back :( Then she drove out the other side of the tunnel to screaming fans.
When we actually started the shift we snuck back down the hallways to where we knew her dressing room was and it was a mess with a violet colored piece of paper that I just had to eavesdrop on. And to my amazement it was Gaga’s itinerary for her stay in Australia, So I kinda maybe stole it. None of her staff was there anymore so it’s all good :) it has everything she’s doing for the next week or so, including addresses of hotels, ties she was leaving to do stuff, like visiting Buddhist temples etc. (it also includes a lot of studio time)
And I got this cool shirt as well. wishing I got her to sign it but I was a little starstruck and didnt have a pen.
Yours sincerely, a major MJ fan and lessthanmajor Gaga fan
While we are sure that the itinerary probably won’t be missed by GaGa and her handlers, the picture-taking and blogging about personal information is probably something they wouldn’t appreciate.
One thing we are intrigued about is “Lite Glam,” something that is listed on GaGa’s itinerary, typically in the morning before a show or traveling. Is that what GaGa and her handlers call doing her “everyday” make-up?
