If this is proven to be true, Danny Boyle has the subject matter for his next movie.

When we look back upon the 2011 Grammys, we’ll surely sit our grandchildren down, not to talk about Arcade Fire or Esperanza Spalding but rather Lady Gaga emerging from that egg to open the show and perform “Born This Way,” the song that our grandchildren will know off by heart, for it is so seminal,  it shall replace the Pledge of Allegiance within schools across the land.

But we digress. Gaga has told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that she spent 72 hours in the egg (or, as Gaga referred to it, “vessel”). As she delightfully put it, “I was in there for about 72 hours, and it was a very creative experience, and it was time for me to prepare and really think about the meaning of [“Born This Way”] and get prepared for the performance. I really wanted to be born on stage.”

TIME’s sister publication, Entertainment Weekly, who has been following this story, has yet to hear back from Gaga’s camp on the crucial issue of whether this was 72 consecutive or non-consecutive hours.

Gaga also spoke to Seacrest about her “creative embryonic incubation,” (to which the only response can be, “what did Seacrest ever do to deserve that?”) NewsFeed remains reasonably confident of calling Gaga out for — ahem — eggsaggerating the truth. But if you’re reading Gaga, we’ll happily hear from you, as we’d love to poach a quote or two to ensure that your message hasn’t been scrambled. Meanwhile, you’ve certainly raised the ante for your next performance: Great Eggspectations, if you will.

That this is even an issue shows why the hair should just be shaved off. In the military, exactly zero effort should be given to hair. That's why men just have it taken off. Then women were given limited accommodations. Now this? Hair styles should not even be a consideration as part of the morning military routine. You have six hours to waste braiding corn rows? Perhaps your priorities aren't right for military service.

Let's get one thing straight here.....

Nobody is busting their asses defending mine. They are doing things they decided to do. I never asked anyone to do this sort of thing for my sake, so stop using all of us citizens as a shield for your violence.

I can defend myself just fine. But you know what? I'm a lot more scared of domestic threats than I am foreign ones. Corrupt police, out of control military, a screwed justice system built for the spoiled and wealthy... If I DO need to defend myself, in all honesty, it's far more likely it will be due to corrupt authority than foreign threats.

So yeah, fyi, I don't appreciate your wasteful endeavors. As a USA citizen, at this point, I would much rather support a militia based paramilitary than the official military of police state oppression. The US govt. is denying the citizens basic liberties we are born entitled to.

For example, every citizen has a right to declare themselves a sovereign citizen, which is probably THE MOST AMERICAN way to live. And where does it get you? It gets you put on a terrorist list in some govt. office. Probably the same office you go to request the forms from.



Not to mention the taxes..... With so little to show for it..... All we are at this point is a military empire, and it needs to stop. Stupid bullies.... That's all america is anymore, the nation of bullies.
