Lady Gaga’s doppleganger hits the Utah stage this month … and no, I don’t mean Gene Geiber. If you don’t know Wiki, she runs in a circle with Tay Tay, KP and the Lorde. Damn I wish I was Ellie, I just run continuously in tiny circles with my shadow.
Rihanna don’t wanna be baptized Momo-anna but she’s willing to step on sacred ground … and no, I don’t mean Try-Angles. If you don’t know Wiki, she’s a Barbarian. Oh, wait … Barbadian!! Oh shit, am I going to get a beat down from Chris Brown?
