I resisted the pull for as long as I reasonably could. I’d heard the name, in whispers and shouts, but dismissed her as another pop tartlet whose 15 minutes of fame would be up shortly.

Only she kept getting more famous. Creeping further into my consciousness. Gaining purchase in my mind.

It turns out Lady Gaga might be a genius.

I don’t know. Maybe it would make more sense if I were Catholic?
