!! OMG, Lady Gaga Might Be Making An Appearance !!

This could be is probably a total publicist created rumor/lie, but here at OMG blog the G is quickly starting to be for GAGA. So it would be irresponsible of us not to pass along whispers of her peripatetic doings. Michael Musto, New York’s most bicycle-riding rumor witch, is reporting that Our Lady of the G just might maybe be holding mass at Providence’s Club 57 in NYC sometime soon:

‚ÄčTake this with a grain of menstrual blood, but the word on the street is that this Saturday, Lady Gaga might–repeat, MIGHT–go to Club 57, the weekly gay party at the multi-level West 57th Street club called Providence.

But I checked the girl’s schedule and it turns out she’s performing in Atlantic City that night, drowning out the casino ka-chinging with her own pricey warbles and glitzy sound effects.

Of course, she could always sweep back into Gotham right after the concert for another chance to compare eyeliner with the gays. But more likely it’s the week after–when she’s playing Radio City Music Hall–that she’d be dropping by the HK club. Or maybe both times. Or perhaps neither.

If you don’t want to pass up an oppo to see Gags in the real live flesh, you know where to go. (And blame Musto, not us, if it turns out this rumor ends up being about Lady Bracknell instead of Lady Gaga.)

!! OMG, How Sinister: Hoodies! !!

Beware the mysterious figure in a hoodie! Yes, it might be your grandma– because she has probably been known to wear a hoodie in more casual moments– but it also might be a dastardly criminal bent on rape, murder, or worse. What’s a girl to do!?
The good people of crime-hotbed Cape Cod, MA, are struggling with just this question, as a recent article in the Cape Cod Times reports. Well gee whiz, how can you use clothing as an indicator of who’s a criminal when criminals/terrorists and normal people all wear similar clothing!? It’s an important question with no obvious answer! Nonetheless, the Cape Cod Times is trying to unravel it:

The popularity of hoodies can be a boon or bane depending on the context. The sweatshirts can be a statement of anti-social tendencies or a colorful and extroverted expression of the wearer’s tastes.

Nightclubs from England to Hyannis have implemented bans on hoodies, but balancing safety concerns with concerns about profiling can be difficult.

“You try not to judge a book by its cover but if the shoe fits,” said Jason Irving, general manager at Tommy Doyle’s Irish Pub on Main Street in Hyannis, where a hoodie ban has been softened because of the sweatshirts’ popularity.

For Cape banks and other businesses, the past six months have increased awareness of the more nefarious uses of the hoodie: a means of concealment while committing a crime…

Although some banks post signs asking customers to remove hats and hoods, police on the Cape and around the country continue to grapple with the trend, more popular than ever with age groups from grandparent to grandchild.

“You can’t confront everyone who is wearing a hoodie because everyone is wearing them,” said Yarmouth police Lt. Steven Xiarhos.

In other news, many criminals have also recently taken to wearing shoes– all the better for making a quick getaway on foot when being pursued by the long arm of the law. More experienced villains have gone so far as to adopt the practice of driving cars, which offer even easier means for evasion. Lawmakers and journalists take note!

!! OMG, Is Jay Quitting Too? !!

The worm turns! Popeater is now reporting a rumor that Jay Leno is also considering leaving NBC along with Conan.

Sources close to former ‘Tonight Show’ host Jay Leno tell me he is furious with the way NBC has treated him and Conan O’Brien and is considering walking away from the entire mess with his head held high. “Now that Conan has made it clear he is leaving the troubled network, Jay is considering doing the same. They have put Jay in a terrible position. It looks like he is the reason that Conan is now without a job. Jay is a great guy and it’s not fair that due to NBC’s stupidity he looks like the bad guy,” a TV insider tells me.

What will NBC do if both of its stars forsake it? Since I’m sure OMG readers are way smarter than television executives, I’ll let you guys make the big decision as to who should take over the Tonight Show:

!! OMG, Thunderheist’s Isis Salam flies solo with “Avenue” !!

Isis Salam is best known for her commanding stage presence as the emcee in Canadian club rap duo Thunderheist. Since the band went on hiatus late last year, the Nigerian-born performer has been busy working on solo material with Toronto-based producer Alixander III. The word on the street is that Isis solo is more Grace Jones than hip-hop and judging from the glossy new wave number “Avenue”, the first track to hit the web, the comparison is spot on.
