We here at Crossfade generally consider ourselves to be gentle, caring individuals with boundless love for our fellow human creatures. So why is it that we find other people's pain so fucking funny? Especially celebrity pain?
Honestly, it's sick. And right now, we can't stop crapping our pants over this video of Lady Gaga dressed in pleather underwear and stripper boots, falling ass-backward off a flaming piano during her concert the other night in Houston.
So yeah ... Want further proof that we might be rotten human beings? Our first thought upon seeing Gaga suffer her hilariously dangerous backflip: "Wouldn't it be perfect if she trips over a saxophone or something at the AAA and we're there to catch it all on video? Crossfade exclusive!"
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
