"This woman is a jerk, I hate her," Seinfeld half-joked during a radio interview.
Apparently, the 56-year-old comedian was not happy that the Mets allowed the 24-year-old pop star to be the (temporary) master of his domain.
"I can't believe they put her in my [VIP] box, which I paid for," Seinfeld vented.
Gaga was ushered to Seinfeld's luxury box after she made an obscene gesture to paparazzi-and fans-from her behind-home-plate seats. Apparently, Gaga was upset that photographers were snapping pics as she tried to enjoy America's favorite sport while scantily clad. (Considering she showed up during the fifth inning, Gaga was clearly intent on watching the game.)
When she asked to be moved, fans started booing her and she responded with the features. By the seventh inning, the Mets staff had moved her to Seinfeld's empty box.
"She is talented though," Seinfeld eventually conceded regarding Gaga's artistry. "I don't know why she's doing this stuff."
Since the incident, the Mets have publicly apologized to long-time fan Seinfeld for their "quick decision" to give Gaga his box.
Gaga, however, wasn't finished striking out. After the Yankees lost to the Mets last Friday, Gaga talked her way past security and visited the Yankees clubhouse. Dressed in not much more than a half-unbuttoned Yankees jersey, the Manhattan-born pop star met with Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano, telling them how honored she was to be in the hallowed locker room.
Although it was initially reported that Yankees co-chair Hal Steinbrenner permanently banned her from the clubhouse for her outrageous unauthorized visit, general manager Brian Cashman has clarified that she's welcome to visit again.
"Celebrities aren't banned," Cashman said. "If Michael Jordan showed up here he would have access [to the clubhouse], but not after a loss." Cashman insists the incident was "not her fault," and it was a case of "the wrong time and the wrong place."
While stories of Gaga raising a ruckus might not come as a shock, her recent behavior stands in sharp contrast with what she recently told Rolling Stone for a cover story.
When asked about testing "borderline positive" for lupus, a disease her family has a history of, Gaga assured her fans she's changing her outrageous habits to ensure her health.
"I reduce stress in my life to make sure I don't develop [the disease]," she said. "I make much more of an effort now to minimize the drama or the stress [in my life]."
Keeping in mind her antics at the Yankees and Mets stadiums, Her Ladyship must hold different definitions of "stress" and "drama" when it comes to her brazen lifestyle.
