My essay on Lady Gaga, her real fakeness and her as white swan to Britney's black swan in this week's Nashville Scene. My editor said "would you like to write something on Gaga?" and I said "Yes." and he gave me a deadline and this is what I turned in and that was that. It's nice to have creative freedom--I am particularly proud of this one. I guess this the upshot of no one letting me write about Gaga until now, until we are ass deep in her cultural zietgeist, is that it gave me time to consider her.
