She's a bitch

If you're a bitch, you are at least in good company historically and otherwise.

And the stranger the better, no?

I want your shoes, baby. And then to be able to pull them off, of course. But poets don't really "do" shoes do they? (Warning I have some very candid poet shoe shots...)

Yes, Madonna must be rolling over in her grave.

I love her. and I could write several thousand words about that song. It's incredible.
More musicians (and poets) should pay attention to the performative, and the complete sensory nature of the performance (be it live or otherwise). there's a huge amount of potential there (though to qualify, I'm not sure how to fully engage with it).

I want to marry your comment above. I completely, completely, completely agree, and this is what I'm trying to do in my own work, with fashion and performance (which I still have so much to learn about). And I am so, so gaga for Gaga!

Thanks for posting this, Sina. Your blog is great, and I've also enjoyed all your Tweets from Poetry (and glad to know Poetry has an interest in fashion too)--speaking of interesting ways to present and perform "poetry" in the world, Twitter is one of them.

Thanks Ross, Kate. Everything is performative, as Poetry points out, even that which steadfastly refuses to acknowledge performance.

Lady Gaga is amazing, yes. Sartorially and otherwise.
