Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah-ah! Excuse us for all the Lagy Gaga coverage, but you know how it is ... Big popstar comes into town and the whole city comes to a standstill.
Our sources have told us Gaga's actually been hanging out in Miami since Sunday, with she and her crew staying at a very prominent South Beach hotel. No surprise there, since she has two South Florida concerts on her schedule -- the first one taking place last night at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise.
But the Monster Ball moves to Miami tonight and opener Semi Precious Weapons is coming along for the ride.
The band has close ties with Mother Monster, who they count as a fan and supporter. They even made a quick cameo in her epic video for "Telephone." So when Semi Precious Weapons hit Mansion tonight for an obligatory afterparty celebration, will Lady Gaga make an appearance? We aren't saying she will. But we aren't saying won't, either. Honestly, we don't know ... Guess you'll just have to take your chances.
Here's the shocker though: Mansion is playing nice and will let you in free before 1 a.m. with a Monster Ball ticket stub. Otherwise, it's $15 via Wantickets.com or whatever the door guy decides to charge you once you get there.
Though, can you put a price on the slim possibility of Lady Gaga showing up, you becoming BFFs, partying until dawn, and waking up the next day thinking it was all a dream?
Semi Precious Weapons Afterparty with DJs Trentino, Ron Luna, and Konflikt. Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Doors open at 11 p.m. and it's free with Monster Ball ticket stub or $15 via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Visit mansionmiami.com
