“This woman is a jerk. I hate her.” – Jerry Seinfeld on Lady Gaga
While the comedian was (partially) joking in an interview with New York’s WFAN radio, he’s definitely not gaga over the singer’s recent baseball game antics.
“I can’t believe that they put her in my box, which I paid for,” Seinfeld said, referring to Lady Gaga’s bizarre, profanity-laced meltdown June 10 at Citi Field.
Gaga showed up during the fifth inning of the day game between the Mets and Padres and was furious that her front-row seats were close to photographers.
Instead of sitting, she vanished into a lower-deck concourse, only to reappear in a little bit later in the empty luxury box owned by Seinfeld, a big Mets fan.
“You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?” he said. “How old is the finger? How’d it even get to be the finger?”
Oh, and what is the DEAL with wearing a bra as a top?
“She is talented,” said Seinfeld. “I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff. I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers.”
He then expounded on her antics: “I’m not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure – you could die of exposure.”
Well, there’s one person who won’t be buying Gaga’s new album.
When the WFAN host pointed out to Seinfeld that Gaga was at the rival Yankees’ game on Friday, Seinfeld said, “Oh please, wake me when it’s over.”
“So you’ve had enough of her?” Steve Somers asked Jerry.
“Yeah,” Seinfeld said. “I wish her the best,” but then added in one final dig at Lady Gaga, “you take one ‘A’ off of that and you’ve got gag.”
Not one of the best Seinfeld quotes ever … but good.
