Entry Description

Lady Gaga backstage at Le Pouisson Rouge Manhattan when she came to meet the Fat White Family after their show. The meeting was over in an instant and getting a clear line of shot in a very crowded room was almost impossible, but not quite. My line opened up as she was looking for someone to give her a cigarette, and got a couple of offers. I feel this is a rare image of a celebrity relaxing and enjoying herself away from the spotlight...almost!.
