I Wish UWM Had This Class…

29 Oct

A professor as the University of South Caroline is teaching a class called “Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame.” WTF UWM? I expect this to be on the list of General Education options next semester (oh wait it doesn’t matter, CUZ I GRADUATE IN DECEMBER!!!)

Anyways… the course will explore what makes a person famous and what being famous means in today’s culture. Or, as the course description puts it: “The central objective is to unravel some of the sociologically relevant dimensions of the fame of Lady Gaga.”

Sign me up for sure! I love me some Gaga! Lots and lots of Gaga!

Unfortunately this story is tainted a little bit by the creepy professor teaching the class. He became “entranced” with Ms. Germanotta after he saw her on the Tonight Show, and has since gone on to see her in concert 28 times, purchase 300 versions of her albums (most of them international), meet her in person five times, and start a fan site gagafrontrow.net. Can you say stalker? It reminds me a bit of that Sandy character on Glee who was obsessed with Josh Groban:

K well enough of the weirdness… Back to the Gaga love:
