And now something a little different. I spent the evening trailing a Lady Gaga impersonator and wrote about it for BrooklynBased.
As we descend the escalator into Grand Central Terminal, a man taking photos of his friend tries to casually angle his camera and take a few snaps of us unnoticed, but it’s obvious. We end up on the 4-5-6 platform with a group of tween tourists who all whisper. We get a seat on the train and the first person to call her Gaga is a street salesman toting home his unsold purses from the day. His friend turns around and when Cole says hello, he proclaims, “Oh that’s not Gaga, Gaga wouldn’t say hello!” When the train lets off at 14th Street a pretty boy leans close and murmurs, “You look uncannily like Lady Gaga” with a wink before departing.
