Three Reasons Why Lady Gaga Visited Julian Assange

Lady Gaga is important. She is important because she loves to act like she is important, and so she does things like visiting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Assange is currently staying in the Ecuadorian embassy in London while his request for asylum in South Africa is considered.  Why would Gaga visit Assange? Your FishbowlNY editors have poured over the details and narrowed it down to three possible reasons:

  1. To discuss freedom of the press, and what that means for Gaga’s plans to enter the 2013 Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Contest.
  2. To show support for Assange and WikiLeaks, which is something Madonna would never do.
  3. So Assange could add vocals to Gaga’s upcoming single, tentatively titled “I’m a Crazy Rule Breaker Breaking The Rules (So Rude).”

We’ll update when we confirm which is correct.
