This is your standard lawsuit story: someone tangentially-to-fairly associated to someone famous (names in this case: Lady Gaga and former assistant Jennifer O’Neill) levels a lawsuit for something or other (the allegations in this case: $380,000 owed for more than 7,000 hours of unpaid overtime) that the famous person’s spokespeople say is complete bunk. It’ll trickle on and trickle out over the next few months. There, now you know all there is to know!
Almost. Part of the lawsuit involved what THR calls Gaga’s “eccentric whims and demands.” Beneath the deliberate outward weirdness of Gaga’s self-presentation, there’s stuff even weirder? Or put another way, there is stuff so eccentric that even Lady Gaga has to hide it? Oh boy, this is gonna be good. Let’s see: “[ensuring] the promptness of a towel following a shower” and “[acting as a] personal alarm clock to keep [Gaga] on schedule.” Absolutely unprecedented. Might want to stick to the overtime part.
