Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is just now speaking out and standing up on the Lady Gaga incident that fell into his New York Met’s VIP box. “I can’t believe they put her in my box that I paid for,” Jerry said. “You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”
Lady Gaga went out to a ballgame with her finger flying and landed in Jerry’s VIP box, without him knowing it.
So what does Jerry think now that he knows?
“I wish her the best,”Jerry told NYC’s WFAN radio (via E! News) of the incident. “You know, you take one ‘a’ off of that, you’ve got gag.”
“I don’t know what these people think or how they promote their careers,” he added. “I’m older, I’m 56… I’m not one of these ‘all publicity is good’ people. People talk about you need exposure — you could die of exposure. I don’t understand how this is good for her.”
But then comedian decided to change up his routine.
“You know I changed my mind, you’re right, this woman’s a jerk. I hate her,” Jerry said. “I can’t believe they put her in my box that I paid for. You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now? It’s pathetic.”
But Jerry didn’t even know of the flip-off at the time it occurred.
“No, how would I know anything? I wasn’t even there,” he explained. “I came for the night game and heard all about it. That was a double-header that day, remember? Oh, she’s a jerk. Giving the finger, what is she giving the finger? Speaking of interesting and new…how old is the finger?”
“Get an act — rhinestone bikinis and giving people the finger?” he continued. “She is talented, I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff.”‘
Later that same month, Lady Gaga had another incident but this time in the Yankees clubhouse.
To that Jerry says, “Oh please. Wake me when it’s over.”
