Taiwan's Lady Gaga Day


We've all heard of Father's Day, Valentine's Day, Friendship Day and now there's a Lady Gaga Day! Taichung, a city in Taiwan declared today "Lady Gaga Day" to commemorate the pop diva's maiden visit here.

And legions of her fans - known as 'Little Monsters' - paraded on the streets dressed in costumes and wigs. One man wore a raw pig's head, the TVBS cable news network reported, in apparent homage to an outfit made of raw meat that Lady Gaga wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. "My father is a butcher. I try to link Lady Gaga's creativity with my family's business," he said.

And on Facebook, fans have suggested a number of dates as "National Lady Gaga Day". But the most popular choice seems to be January 29 as a massive gaggle of 105,963 Lady Gaga wannabes (Webpage http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=227969205129) picked this one day - founded by student Sarah Jane Elliott - to provide an opportunity to "dress like her, sing, dance, have themed parties, wear a kermit the frog jacket" and "celebrate the 'inner freak' that Gaga allows (and wants) us to be". Double wow!!
