Lady Gaga’s Hurricane Blues for the LES

Posted on: October 30th, 2012 at 8:49 pm by


The Mother Monster has been following Sandy’s messy path which brought back some memories of the LES.

im not sure where to put these feelings. im so sad. i feel like my entire childhood is underwater. the boardwalk in atlantic city, my old Apts in Brooklyn and LES. all the bars and friends. im just so sad. i know it will be ok. im not sure why i feel this way. maybe homesickness, or maybe its easier to be a gypsy if you know your soul grows from somewhere great. and that great place protected me my whole life, now parts are destroyed. just very sad and pensive today. thinking of everyone today.

Hang in there, Lady Gaga. Ain’t nothing gonna hold down the LES. We’ll put together a benefit show if you’ll play it…
