Lady Gaga Explains Exploding Tits

Lady Gaga’s exploding boobs at the 2009 MMVAs.

Lady Gaga made her breasts explode at the MuchMusic Video Awards last night.

The fired-up funbags were part of a surreal live medley performance of “LoveGame” and “Poker Face” that involved an erotic subway ride dance sequence which devolved into a fight between her and some transit cops all flanked by bondage-geared backing dancers.

GaGa later said at a press conference the reason for the boobie blast was because there was some doubt MuchMusic would be able to put together her elaborate subway car set.

“The bra, actually, it was a funny story,” she said. “When I was speaking to MuchMusic, they were having problems figuring out how to build that subway train and get it on and off the stage. And I said, ‘Well, if you can’t build my subway train, I’m going to blow my tits up on stage.’

“I was in Hawaii, and I said, ‘We need to blow my tits up on stage — I’m thinking conical bra, ode to Madonna, fire.’ And David LaChapelle was in the background screaming, ‘Lactate! It should lactate!’

“It was inspired by Helmut Newton. So we built the bra as an in-case-the-subway-wasn’t-built, but we decided to use both anyway.
“My new name is Hot Tits.”

Earlier in the evening, Gaga won the best international video by an artist award for “Poker Face.” Her acceptance speech featured her yelling “To God and the gays!” while hoisting her trophy in the air.

Here is one of many YouTube clips of the performance.

A long time ago in a publishing galaxy far, far away, Sarah once interviewed Franz Ferdinand about “hot-blooded girls” (the band’s words) who wrote fan fiction pairing them up with Morrissey.

At the time she thought she had started something fun… and now she’s not too sure.

‘The Fits’ Is Bringing Art Back To Boxing Movies

The Fits

The Fits

It could be fairly argued that the boxing movie as a genre has gotten quite predictable and stale.

That’s why new indie movie The Fits is such an intriguing, welcome new film.

Its use of the sweet science is a bold new direction for fight — or at least fight tangential — films.

Sarah wrote about it for Fightland.
