SH: Why are you waiting overnight outside in the miserable heat?
Random Fan: It’s Gaga!!!
SH: Has anyone heard of Leigh Bowery?
Random Fan(s): Deaf ears…
SH: That’s L-E-I-G-H Bowery, like the street.
Random Fan: Huh?
SH: He was a performance artist.
Random Fan: What’s that?
SH: What about Grace Jones?
Random Fan: Oh, I think I’ve heard of her.
SH: Do you know about the Club Kids?
Random Fan: Wasn’t that a movie?
SH: Does she remind you of early Madonna, especially some of her videos?
Random Fan: Well, Lady Gaga says Madonna inspires her.
