Win Lady Gaga tickets in Thursday's Got Plans? chat

By David Malitz

We've got quite a giveaway for you in tomorrow's edition of Got Plans? Because you already saw the headline, you know that it's tickets for next Thursday's Lady Gaga concert at Verizon Center. We have three (3) tickets to the Feb. 24 that will be awarded to one lucky winner in tomorrow's edition of Got Plans?

Gaga has transcended simple music stardom to become one of pop culture's most fascinating figures. Much of this is due to her singular fashion sense and ability to make an entrance. We remember when she wore a meat dress at the MTV VMAs. And she managed to top herself at Sunday's Grammys by being paraded into the event inside a giant egg. She even told Ryan Seacrest she spent 72 hours inside the egg.

So our challenge for you is this -- Tell us how Gaga can top herself at the next grand entrance. Maybe it involves wearing King Tut's burial mask or arriving via one of those giant robot things from "Empire Strikes Back." Join us Thursday at 1 p.m., tell us your best scenario and you could end up a winner.

Though Lady Gaga’s outfits are for shock-factor, they are oftentimes also for social commentary as well. They make people rethink norms and what is socially acceptable. I approached the question with this in mind. My idea for how Lady Gaga can top herself is that she can a costume that is a costume in itself.

Essentially, it will involve her enlisting the help of a Lady Gaga lookalike (which is no hard task!) to walk the red carpet followed by a hoard of paparazzi specifically recruited to follow her around. However, little does the audience know that the real Lady Gaga is disguised as one of the paparazzi members following the fake Lady Gaga. When it’s time to get on stage and perform, the still-disguised real Lady Gaga should jump on stage to grab the microphone from the fake imitation and reveal herself to a surprised audience. Not only will this shock the audience members who will realize that they’ve been duped, but will also be symbolic of the mechanisms of fame, a topic to which Lady Gaga is no stranger.

Yeah, the idea above sounds really good and intriguing, but she can do something way better.

Over the years we've seen Lady Gaga wear the most, crazy, amazing, over the top, but interesting outfits that no other singer/celebrity would wear. Obviously, Gaga is a huge fashion icon! Her outfits wow us and makes her audience/fans want more! Gaga should do something different and new, something that no other person has ever done before. My idea for Lady Gaga to top herself is, arrive in a huge Lady Gaga robot, a robot that is one of a kind; like her. The Gaga robot should be identical to her. Not only is it going to be identical to Gaga, but Gaga should be carried by herself, the robot. Gaga robot will be carrying Ms. Gaga by the robots hands. The robot will have its hands out carrying Gaga in a glass covered globe, inside the globe will be Lady Gaga; but to keep the audience and the paparazzi guessing who's inside. The globe will have steam inside of it and it'll also be flashing inside; like stoke lights. The globe will show that she's taking over the world with her talent and music, but it will also show that the future for Gaga has yet to end, and this is only the beginning of her!

Also, to make it eve more interesting and shocking, Gaga robot will have paparazzi "people" chained to the globe and to Gaga robots hands. The paparazzi will be dragged, pulling Gaga robot. Showing that even though Lady Gaga gets criticized and is misunderstood by the paparazzi, she steps over them and doesn't give what they say. Instead of Lady Gaga being dragged around by the paparazzi, she will be dragging them this time instead. But the paparazzi won't have it that easy, they'll be chained to their bodies and they'll be almost completely nude. Well, with metallic covering their personal areas. This is something Gaga should definitely do! No doubt about it! With this idea I've provided, it'll show how Gaga is one of a kind and this is something people will not stop talking about, ever!
