The last time Lady Gaga was caught in pinstripes it was in her jailhouse-set music video for "Telephone," with Beyoncé. But over the weekend Gaga donned a different kind of pinstripe, that of the New York Yankees, when she took in a game at the defending World Series champions uptown stadium.
This marks the second time Gaga has visited a New York baseball park in recent weeks. A little while back, she was caught flipping the bird to some nosy paparazzi while attending a Mets game at Citi Field. This act has prompted the Mets to have a "Go Gaga For Wright" night at the park, encouraging fans to, ahem, make third baseman David Wright "number 1," if you get my drift, in the All-Star voting.
Gaga's visit to Yankee Stadium was not without controversy, either. There were reports that a booze-swilling Gaga entered the Yankees clubhouse and tried to chat up some of the players, causing mayhem in and around the area. There were even rumors that Gaga had since been banned from the Yanks' clubhouse, but General Manager Brian Cashman told the New York Daily News, "She's not banned." He added: "Where a security detail prevents the media covering the game from doing its job, that is wrong. This has nothing to do with her."
Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano wasn't too bothered by the whole scene, telling the Daily News, "She's a great singer -- she can sing. I tell you that. I just wanted to say hi." Aww.
