As the final season of The Oprah Show winds up, Oprah is securing a few heavy interviews.  I was almost starting to feel some kinda way about this final season after her last few shows where she revisited DL brothers (who DIDN’T know JL King was Gay?) and the show on 30 something virgins almost killed my soul.

But I digress…

Lady GaGa Takes a Tumble

Lady Gaga Takes a Tumble…

Lady GaGa struts her stuff in London’s Heathrow airport dressed in yet another one of her signature outfits. Normally we’d all be laughing at her sci-fi like ensemble, a bizarre mix of thigh-high black leather chaps and platform heel-less boots, but this time it’s her balance that’s got everyone tickled.

Lady GaGa may have fell down, but she got up again. I dunno why we find falls so funny but CLICK HERE to revisit a classic tumble video that’ll really tickle your tummy!
