All Star Impressions Show

Now, a television show so culturally and intellectually impoverished that the producers should be tried by a hastily reconvened Nuremburg court. It's the All Star Impressions Show. The small-screen embodiment of Hannah Arendt's "banality of evil".

Imagine, for those of you who didn't pay witness. The idea, bizarrely, was for D-List celebrities to impersonate Z-List celebrities. Mick Jagger's ex, Jeri Hall, pretending to be Katie Price. Claire Sweeney imitating Stacey Solomon from X-Factor. Mackenzie Crook from genre-defining sitcom The Office giving the world his Steptoe and Son, a 70s television show for racists and homophobes.

It did, however, contain two of the greatest images of the decade, mere days before its end. The first is a parody of the Sugababes, but with the Hon. Dianne Abbott MP (who I actually bloody love) playing Keisha. I think it's not an over exaggeration to say, omfg.

The second; Joe Pasquale performing as Lady Gaga.

I feel violated. But I think I like it.

So much <3 for Gaga, San Francisco, Gays, Xmas

A retweet from some glorious dipso/discomaniac:

@wubbolicious got so drunk celebrating b4 @ladygaga 's concert in SF i blacked out and missed the whole thing! :(

But isn't that the true spirit of a Gaga concert/Christmas?

Reasons Sweden Rules the World #467

The ridickalously delectable Alexander Skarsgård.

There is a lot that could be said about this particular Scandinavian sex-monger, but right now I'm just going to sit here and watch him lounge.

A Very Important Part of The Internets

Lady Gaga's stylists's blog. The unexpectedly male Nicola Formichetti is the creative genius behind much of La Gaga's most gloriously insane get-ups, and documents them all on his blog, not only showcasing such unfairly overlooked Gagas as
Antler GagaBurning Piano-Playing Gollum Gaga and
Jacket With Her Own Face On Gaga,
but also thoughtfully informing us as to the designers behind classics such as the polar bear coat (Benjamin Cho- SANTA TAKE NOTE). That's not even to mention the odd RPattz styling. What a hero!

Hell For Leather

Lady Gaga: Your Majesty, I hope you appreciated my homage to your distinguished forebear, Elizabeth the First.

The Queen: Bitch, you know I love you.
