Lady Gaga Performs With Elton John at 52nd Grammy Awards Show

The 52nd Grammy Awards which aired on CBS on January 31st, 2010 started off with an incredible performance. A song and dance number began in front of an elaborate set labeled The Fame Factory. The "Fame Factory "owner dragged a Gaga look-alike across the floor during the start of the dance number. Lady Gaga rose up amidst the belching puffs of steam while standing on a small elevator platform and started singing her song "Pokerface"(beautifully). She descended the stairs into the midst of the floor show. Near the end of the song she got dragged off by the Fame Factory owner, up some stairs and dropped into a flame-belching "rejected" funnel. Shortly thereafter two large doors opened to reveal Lady Gaga and Sir Elton John both singed, sooty, and sitting at pianos facing each other. It was clear that they had spent a fair amount of time practicing each other's songs together. Unfortunately the YouTube Video of the performance I had originally embedded is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Grammys, but there is another video of the performance with Lady Gaga performing first "Pokerface" solo and then "Speechless" and finally "Your Song" with Sir Elton John where embedding has been disabled by request, but the quality is good. That video is also up or available at Lady Gaga's website. The 2010 Grammy Awards show was a real winner. There were great performances by Beyonce in what appeared to be Kevlar panties, and a phenomenal acrobatic aerial performance by Pink while singing beautifully live and being drenched by a torrent of water. There were plenty of other great performers too. Naturally I thought Lady Gaga should have won and that Pink should have gotten an award for her song "Sober". The 52nd Grammy Award Show was a memorable one.

No Pants Subway Ride 2010 and No Pants Day

How could I have not known about the No Pants Subway Ride until I saw it on the television evening news on January 10th 2010? After having seen Ida Siegel of NBC television interviewing a woman as she stood there in her pretty pink panties on a New York City subway, naturally I did a few Google searches and then read in in Wikipedia about No Pants Day and the Annual No Pants Subway Ride being totally separate events. Before I could write a post or attempt to take a crude video of the television set when the story came back on that night Improv Everywhere's No Pants 2010 Reports were already coming into their blog at a good clip. There were participants, observers and news media already posting photographs and videos online. I was delighted to find out later that the the same Pants Off On the Subway was posted on line with embedding enabled:

This second version of Ida Siegal's nbcnewyork.com report on the 9th Annual No Pants Subway Ride New York City - Improv Everywhere - January 10, 2010.wmv which was uploaded by "BigAppleM" to YouTube seemed a little more complete and seemed to run a little smoother:                                 
                                                       

                                                                                                                                                                   
     I hope to read a lot more accounts, comments and opinions about these public underwear exposure events and all of the various underwear that was on display. There are oodles of blogs, photographs and videos posted by participants, observers and various media. I love it! I cross-posted this on my WordPress blog as well. So what do you think of the 9th Annual No Pants Subway Ride and of No Pants day? What do you think of the various underwear that were on display? Did you participate? Do you think you might participate in next year's event or in the No Pants Day in May?

Another Brief Lady Gaga Post: 52nd Grammy Awards!

Initially I had resolved to keep this blog more to the subject of the blogs title: "Full Brief Panties", and hadn't intended to do another post about Lady Gaga quite so soon. Then I read on the Lady Gaga News Feed that Lady Gaga will perform at the 52nd Grammy Awards on January 31st on CBS, and that Lady Gaga is up for 5 Grammys, and just had to. There is more info about the awards at http://www.grammy.com/ . How could I not write this quick note? To me it's great news!
