    I haven’t heard much of this lady but a few days ago, I listened to her Anna Bolena. It was just ghastly. She just chucked anything Donizetti might have written and sang her own poorly composed music.

    Sorry to threadjack but last night I came back from a concert with another dimunitive diva — LADY GAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Omg it was amazing, unless you’ve seen all of MSG screaming and crying during the refrain of “Bad Romance” you haven’t experienced Gaga. And the night was capped off when we were leaving the concert, walked to the subway, and plopped down in the subway seat only to notice Caroline Kennedy right across from us. I guess me and my friend were trying hard not to stare but not doing a good job so she waved and said hi. CAROLINE KENNEDY IS A LITTLE MONSTER TOO!
