Meh. Roll eyes. Shake head. Move on.
Lady Gaga is awesome. Loved it.
U2 jumping shark for relevance. Classless gaga shouldn't be on the same stage.

The Troubles should only be performed by Lykke. I think LG would overdo the vocals like she did on OL

I saw the Youtube clip thought she did a good job.

Clearly a few of the ladies on here didn't like it because they caught their man staring at her ar*e the entire song....  ;)    (I kid, sortuv)

I think she added a nice spark to the show. Not a fan at all but she has a great voice.
I enjoyed it more than some random guy from the audience playing piano or guitar.
I have to admit, I thought some stripper was taking the stage when she walked up.

im not sure, but seriously, what if a u2 fan did wear a 2 piece number like gaga--would they let her into the show?

is there a dress code for fans?

if my man looked at her, so what, then, when I caught bonos water... ;D

knowing Bono if she was pretty she would but up their dancing to Mysterious Ways.

It occurred to me that having Lady Gaga sing the co-vocal on "Troubles" would have given that song an interesting performance on this tour.

I'm not a fan of hers so I wasn't really impressed or excited about it.

That was Lady Gaga? I thought it was a drag queen with a really bad voice!

It was horrendous. Maybe I am getting old, but maybe that was a time where U2 should have said "no"

Neither. Hope it's just a one-off.

Not a fan of Ordinary Love, and I have preferred the more democratic ethos where a fan comes onstage and performs with the band.  However, the crowd seemed to appreciate the performance and she played the piano and sung well.  It also seems rather one-sided to comment about how she dresses as I doubt anyone would say anything about "appropriateness" of clothing if a male performer had joined the band on stage.

If I was a woman then I'd be upset.

All the hassle women have in this male-dominated world and LGG just comes on stage dressed like a w**** - it's true - and what does that say? That says 'only judge me by my body'.

I understand that there are stage clothes and all that - see Madge, Beyonce and Rhiana - and women can dress how they bloody well like (don't need men telling them what to wear), but it just makes me sad that 4 middle-aged men are all dressed in standard 'rock dad' clothing and Gaga is dressed like a slut.

Or am I getting old?

Imo, women should be allowed to dress how they feel comfortable, without being judged. Lady Gaga included.

Exactly.  You'll notice noone ever accuses a male star of dressing like a "slut" or "w****".  Such judgmental labels are always an attempt to shame women into dressing in ways the accuser finds "acceptable".

I doubt anyone from U2 has ever listened to any of her albums in their entirety.
