Happy New Year! The Promise of 2012 is palpable! I guess we’ll have to wait and see if all the prophesies for this eventful year are accurate:
Butt heck! It’s New Years Day! Lets enjoy some scenes from last night’s revelry, and maybe consider a couple of New Year’s Resolutions.
Lady Gaga was on hand to bring in the New Year in Times Square with Mayor Bloomberg, and a dignified arrival it was:
Although Bloomie might have been a tad underdressed, Gaga, for her part, did not disappoint: sporting three sparkly costumes:
Lady Gaga sports costumes representing the three possible monetary standards the U.S. is considering for 2012: silver, gold and mud.
Lady Gaga who would have you believe she was “Born This Way” actually wasn’t. Like her idol, Madonna (nee Ciccone), Gaga was born a sweet little Italian girl named Stefani Germanotta..

And while Madonna is clearly Lady Gaga’s idol and inspiration, at just 25 LG may wish to make note of certain decisions Madonna, who will turn 54 this year, has made and file them away for future reference. And since some of these decisions are irreversible for Madge, allow me to suggest a few age-appropriate New Year Resolutions for the original Material Girl, to help her transition into the second half of her century.
We’ll start with the simple stuff: Let’s face it Madge: there is a chronological age at which – no matter how toned you keep those arms – you might want to consider covering them up:
Along the same lines, even if you have rock hard abs, like Trudie Skyler here, (Mrs. Sting),
bare mid-drifts are just not your friend any more, girl.
Even on a Sticky and Sweet concert tour, a bare middle section seems somehow inappropriate after a “certain” age.
Actually, the “bare” part goes for a lot of other body parts as well after a certain point. If you know what I mean.
And speaking of legs: we might want to reconsider certain boot styles as well:
I don’t care how you try to skirt it, and wrap it in patriotism, after a certain point thigh highs might not be the best choice.
Oh, and one last thought: you might want to swear off further cosmetic “enhancements” after the first 50 (enhancements, not years). Although with proper makeup ($15,000 per session) and photo touchup skills you’ll still look great, when you leave the gym sans makeup, well, you might scare people.
Just ask Melanie Griffith what can happen if you get carried away.
Butt if you do insist on having future cosmetic surgery to ward off the effects of aging, I do have one additional New Year’s Resolution you may want to adopt: hire HER surgeon:
Raquel Welch. Age: 71 Is this even legal in America? Where we’re all supposed to be equal?
Happy New Year to everyone from Raj, Little Mo, Little Bo and Moi!
