I’m not a big Lady Gaga fan, but I do appreciate her art. I find her music videos interesting, and I also like that she’s become so popular while promoting LBGT rights. I think she really deserves some credit for the work she has done in that area.
I also like the fact that she keeps coming back to Nebraska, where — even in Omaha — she would seem like a fish out of water (and may even be dressed like one given her propensity for strange costumes). I don’t know if she is still dating a guy from Nebraska (the tabloids have reported they are no longer together, but there are conflicting reports, apparently), or whether she’s just developed a soft spot for my native Cornhusker state, but she is apparently in the Omaha area shooting a new video of some sort.
The Omaha World-Herald has the story:
It hasn’t been a long time since she came around. But Lady Gaga is back in town.
According to people with knowledge of the project, the singing superstar arrived on a private jet at Eppley Airfield on Tuesday night and spent part of Wednesday filming something in Sarpy County, possibly a music video. Roads surrounding the filming site at 108th Street and Capehart Road, in Richfield, Neb., were closed and onlookers were kept out of the area.
Angela Lewis, a teacher at Springfield Elementary School, saw road closure signs go up Tuesday near her home and thought crews may be preparing to pave the gravel road.
But to her dismay, she got Lady Gaga instead.
“She’s kind of weird,” Lewis said.
Sarpy County Sheriff’s Capt. Dan Williamson confirmed that the Gaga crew had gotten permits to close several roads around the perimeter of the set.
