Politics, Paris And Decapitated Santa Claus: Lady Gaga's Crazy Weekend

Above you see Lady Gaga, via her own Twitpic account, expressing her joy at the repealing of Don't Ask Don't Tell in a typically Gaga fashion: taking a charmingly rough, if still somehow glamorous picture of herself and tweeting her joy: "Can't hold back the tears+pride. We did it! Our voice was heard + today the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 YEARS."

It was one of several nutty things that went down in the world of Lady Gaga this weekend, and Mama Monster kept us all informed via her always interesting Twitter feed.

On Thursday night, Lady Gaga played London's O2 Arena. You got the feeling something exciting was going to happen when she tweeted, "London, I have never felt more grateful for little monsters, music, and creativity. I can't wait to blow the roof off the 02 arena tonight." She didn't blow the roof off the place, but she did bite the head off a Santa Claus doll. Bah humbug!

Perhaps that was tempting fate or something, because the rest of the weekend didn't go exactly as planned. While Gaga was elated at the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, Gaga's spirits soon sank when all 28 of her Monster's Ball tour trucks were detained by French authorities, and two of her crew members were arrested, forcing her to cancel her Paris show and post a lengthy emotional apology. Oh, and this picture of a storm, taken from her bus:

Very moody. Very French! Lady Gaga's European adventure continues all week. She'll be making up her canceled Paris gig tomorrow night. Tweets and twitpics likely to ensue!
