Hey, isn't that...?: Lady Gaga doing yoga on Capitol Hill


Lady Gaga -- so flexible! (Tracy A. Woodward/The Washington Post)

Hey, isn't that Lady Gaga dropping in for the Wednesday noon class at Bikram Yoga Capitol Hill, after her previous night's show at Verizon Center? What does Gaga wear to yoga, you ask? Five-inch Louis Vuitton heels and a gorgeous blazer, which she shed to work out in a bra-and-panty-type ensemble. Platinum bob, fake eyelashes. Small entourage -- an advance guy and bodyguard. She made charming small talk with a teacher's 6-year-old daughter. Left a trail of white-tipped bobby pins in her wake. The eight or so other people in the class were calm and unruffled by the celebrity in their midst, said studio owner Liz Glover: "Everyone's the same in the yoga room."

See -- celebrities are just like us. Well, except for the yoga in your underwear part....

Yoga is not about showing up with an advance guy and bodyguard and doing poses in your bra and panties. How disruptive for the serious students! Why didn't she just schedule a private class if she was so desperate for her yoga "fix"? Ugh.

There are "serious students" of yoga? Fascinating.

Bikram isn't real yoga; they shove you in a 105°F room - humidity 40% - so most students are half naked (but trust me, it's not sexy). Instructors are more drill sergeant than yogis and proper form & spirituality are ignored. Helluva workout, though.

I hope this doesn't appear in the print edition, since the demographic for print is probably a little older than the online demographic. I don't know/don't care who Lady Gaga is but I really have no interest in reading about her or her lingerie outfit for yoga. Come on, Reliable Source, get back to covering people who are truly of interest to us in the DC Metro area.

"bra-and-panty-type ensemble" doesn't mean she wore a bra and panties to yoga.

No doubt this will be reported in Celeb Yoga Magazine with photos

Yeah...like the Real Housewives of DC. C'mon...this is a gossip page. I'd rather hear about rare DC appearances of famous people with actual talent (be it even pop music) than these manufactured celeritards who think they are famous because they agree to be on camera.

It takes a real Bikram yoga lover to get up after a 2 1/2 hour performance, do a 90 minute class in a 105 degree room, then go and do another show in Charlottesville six hours later. I was at Gaga's show - it was talented genius. I actually practice Bikram yoga and know her teacher - no havoc was wrought. Celebrities are people too and are entitled to real moments with real people. Unfortunately some of you posters really don't get it. You -go Gaga!

I'm having trouble believing silentnomore is serious. I'm not much of a fan of her music, but Lady Gaga is right now one of the half-dozen or so most popular performers in the U.S. She's not a Paris Hilton "famous for being famous" type. She's famous for having millions and millions of people buy her records and go see her concerts in huge arenas.
