'I'm feeling particularly slutty tonight," Stefani Germanotta purred to a sold-out Susquehanna Bank Center on Thursday night. Known to her fans - as well as anyone who's passed within hailing distance of a working radio or TV set in the last year - as Lady Gaga, she arrived with the kind of explosive force that can incinerate artists unprepared for the spotlight. Since the success of her insidious, inescapable single "Poker Face," Gaga has staged a blizzard of reinvention, from sex kitten to bondage queen, as well as what might be a visitor from a far more stylish future.

Until Friday's Electric Factory show, the hype surrounding Lady Gaga seemed too good to be true. Lada Gaga's 2008 debut, The Fame, offered a mirthful mix of theatrical electronic disco and grand glam pop filled with snitty, pithy lyrics and coy vocals rich in cold soul. While Gaga, born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, had her hands in Fame's production, playing and songwriting, she's also a fashion maven with an eye toward wearing asymmetrical '80s tops, bodysuits instead of pants, and complementing her ensembles with an eyewear selection of disco-ball masks and TV-screen sunglasses.

You say you're rushing out Wednesday to get the new Rolling Stone when it goes on sale, to read about Gen. Stanley McChrystal dissing Veep Joe Biden . But we know what you'll really do: ogle Lady Gaga on the cover showing a lot of flesh (the weapons on her chest could kill), then turn to the Gaga story, titled "Tells All. " "Sex is certainly not, like, a priority at the moment," she, like, says. Other Gaga-ntuan news: Her highest priority is her relationship with fans; she models her celebrity on Michael Jackson ; she has a recurring dream starring "a phantom and a blond girl who's tied up with ropes" and is wearing her shoes from the Grammys.

L ADY GAGA HAS been booted from YouTube after her account was suspended yesterday. The notice read that the suspension was due to "multiple or severe violations of YouTube's copyright policy. " Who complained, Madonna ? The Google-owned YouTube declined to comment (but maybe someone could post a video commenting for YouTube). YouTube's policy is to remove accounts after three copyright violations, though they can be restored after being corrected. Reports have suggested that the infringing video was a recently uploaded clip of Gaga's performance on Fuji TV. The account, "ladygagaofficial," is one of two for Gaga and is run by Gaga's camp, which isn't really a camp except it involves a lot of athletic, young people who have fun. Gaga also has an unaffected Vevo account.

Adele scored six Grammy nominations Wednesday night, including for record, song, and album of the year, but the owner of 2011's best-selling album with 21 wasn't the night's top nominee - and that wasn't the evening's only surprise. Kanye West came away with a leading seven nominations, including a bid for song of the year for his all-star song "All of the Lights. " However, the album from which it came - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, heralded by many critics as the best album of 2010 - was shut out of the best album category, and all of his other nominations were relegated to the rap fields.

NEW YORK - Lady Gaga sold more than 1.1 million copies of her new album "Born This Way" and set a digital sales record last week - with an assist from Amazon.com. Billboard announced Tuesday that "Born This Way" debuted at No. 1 on its Billboard 200 album chart, becoming just the 17th album to sell a million copies in its first week since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991 and the top-selling digital debut. The dance pop provocateur is just the fifth female with an album that sold more than a million copies in the SoundScan era. Lady Gaga's first No. 1 album sold the most copies of any debut since March 2005 when 50 Cent's "The Massacre" sold 1.14 million.

I've avoided writing about Lady Gaga because, frankly, the woman scares me. OK, maybe scares is too strong a word, but one must admit: Her getups are unsettling. I mean, she wore a costume of blood and exposed bones at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. And remember the raw meat dress and matching shoes she donned at the VMAs in September? Eww. But as we wrap up this year in fashion, I must admit - albeit warily - that I can't ignore the blond songstress anymore. 2010 was the year of Gaga.

WITH A SPRINKLING of young darlin's like Lady Gaga and Michael Buble (and their fans) taking a serious shine to pop standards, there's hope that Philadelphia-based author Ben Yagoda won't just be preaching to the choir with his new book, The B-Side: The Death of Tin Pan Alley and the Rebirth of the Great American Song (Riverhead Books). Millennials also should have fun digging into this carefully researched (and breezy-reading) tome, discovering where most of popular music's great bones are buried - in the rich catalogs of the Gershwin brothers, Rodgers and Hart, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, in the musicals of Hollywood and Broadway's Golden Age of the 1930s to '50s.

On "Cheek To Cheek" she's introducing her "Little Monsters" to the sophisticated pop standards that have long been Bennett's stock-in-trade, and (surprise!

Are you ready for some football? In the fall, always, but this weekend even more so after seeing Half Straddle's In the Pony Palace/Football , a fast, funny romp and stomp all over the gridiron on stage this final week of the 2014 Fringe Festival. Half Straddle parodies the game, sports movies made for boys (grown or otherwise), and the attitudes of players at all levels - current, retired, or still scoring touchdowns in their own minds. Statistics become "likes and dislikes," the coach yells "Don't leave anything on the field!"

IN THE SPIRITUAL realm, they call it karma. In the celebrity realm, they call it payback.
