That was the headline piece on the newspaper that was shown in Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” music video after she fell off the terrace.


Since I had my straight bangs, most of my friends started calling me Lady Gaga or Lady Paula. Somehow, it  seemed like Gaga and Paula are alike terms. BUT THEY’RE NOT.

Actually, it’s not that I don’t like it. It’s pretty much okay. Before, Paula, as the dictionary of babies’ names puts it, means small. Still, I’d like to think that I was named Paula in reference to St. Paul the Apostle. Now, as said already, it’s being equated to Gaga. At least by my so-called friends. Just kidding!

When Filipinos use the word gaga, however, they unintentionally make it sound SO not likeable. Also, I’m NOT really a fan of Lady Gaga….until lately. I mean, I’ve been singing “Paparazzi” for days. That must mean something, right?

The one and only pleasant meaning of gaga that I found was from where it was defined as an informal adjective to describe excitement. If by being called Lady Gaga, they meant gaga in its positive light, then by all means, call me gaga. Gah. It still sounds so wrong. HAHA

Now let me use gaga in a sentence. I WAS GAGA OVER THE IDEA OF DOING A COMMUNICATION BLOG. As I’ve said in my introduction entry, an academic blog is something different but I’m excited to try it. Dismally, as time progresses, I was not able to sustain my excitement and interest until I gradually became a lady no more gaga.


If you haven’t watched yet the “Paparazzi” music video, you may watch it here. I can’t post it because embedding the video was disabled. I actually subscribe to Lady Gaga‘s official YouTube channel now. Ha!

Reminder when you watch the MTV: When people address me as Lady Gaga or Lady Paula, it is just because of my bangs, and no reason at all that is similar to what you will witness in this video.


If you have seen the MTV, you will know that Lady Gaga was intentionally pushed off the terrace by her boyfriend when she hit him with a bottle of wine causing her to fall. People then thought that she died. Of course they were wrong because all along, she was in disguised plotting a revenge against her ex-boyfriend. When she succeeded, she revealed herself again.

So what do Lady Gaga and Little Miss Straight bangs–I–have in common (apart from the obvious full straight bangs)???

Refer to the title–The COMEBACK

Don’t worry. I’m not plotting against anyone for some revenge mission. It’s just that after 7 long weeks of being stagnant, I am once again sticking my bangs into what is happening in the world of Organizational Communication and New Social Media. And the only plan I am plotting right now is how I’m going to sustain my online presence and how I’ll be able to keep up what with my six or so missed blog posts.
