It looks like Lady Gaga isn’t winning fans over among the comedy crowd. Veteran comic, Jerry Seinfeld, was not amused by the singer’s recent antics at a New York Mets game in Shea Stadium when she showed sports photographers her middle finger.
Although Seinfeld had previously released a statement that his family took an optimistic view of Lady Gaga’s gesture as a sign that she wanted the Mets to be in first place,” he changed his mind during an interview with New York’s WFAN sports jock, Steve Somers.
When Somers pointed out that Gaga (who was dressed in a studded bra and panties) was escorted to Seinfeld’s luxury box after flicking off photographers, he commented: “I can’t believe they put her in my box — that I paid for! You give people the finger and you get upgraded?” Seinfeld also thought she was a “jerk” for giving the finger and suggested the singer “get an act.” He added, “I’m not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure — you could die of exposure.”
It sounds like Jerry Seinfeld is wondering, like a lot of us, why Lady Gaga is getting any publicity in the first place.
- Jerry Seinfeld had more to add about Lady Gaga when he joined announcer, Keith Hernandez, as a guest commentator for the Mets this week: “But I’m very protective of my Met fans. I love my Met fans and I did not like . . . the finger,” he said. “It was disrespectful.”
