I’m pretty sure if you gave him the time he’d explain how he’s responsible for the discovery of penicillin, the invention of the printing press, and the design of the iPhone. This week The Donald is sticking with how he brought the world Lady Gaga when he gave her her big break. Where? When? Click for more.
Gaga was the headlining act of Trump’s popular Miss Universe Pageant in 2008, and performed her breakout song “Just Dance” for the very first time on TV.
In a new book, he says, “I own the Miss Universe Pageant. And about four years ago, during what you call half-time, we always have an entertainer. We’ve had a lot of great people, and you don’t pay them anything because it’s one of the biggest audiences and my people told me, ‘Nobody knows who she is but there’s this woman with good talent named Lady Gaga.’ And I said, ‘Give me a break.’ And then they said, ‘She’s really good.’ So I said, ‘I don’t care, if you like her, put her on.’ So we put her on… it was live all over the United States and all over the world and the next day, nobody was talking about (the winner of) Miss Universe, everybody was talking, ‘Who was the woman, who was the entertainer? She was unbelievable.'”
So, there you have it. Without Donald Trump and his incredible comb-over the world would be Gaga-less.
