Gay/Straight Viral Video: Ga Ga for GaGa
No need to watch the whole thing, unless you want to. But check out the last 30 seconds or so...
What motivates a sixth-grade boy to play an acoustic version of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi," a song about fame and sexual obsession, at a middle school talent show? And with such emotion?
He's pretty -- OK -- really good. Not to mention fearless. But, isn't it a questionable song choice? Or is it a calculated pick-up technique? Most of the girls in the background look unimpressed, but I bet he got a lot of buzz around the cafeteria (good and bad) for this.
I can't say much more without making assumptions and insinuations that I shouldn't make... I regret what sixth-grade me would probably have said, though I simply can't imagine anyone this bold and talented from my childhood. At that age, I could barely ask a girl to play tether ball. So belting out "Loving you is cherry pie" and "I'll chase you down until you love me," would be unthinkable.
