Lady Gaga stole the show on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live 10-03-09, which featured a surprise cat fight with the real Madonna. After the broadcast, she attended a gay benefit where she urged her fans to attend the National Equality March October 11. We have video snippets of it all, plus the entire SNL episode, in case you missed it! Lady Gaga never fails to shine!
On SNL, in the middle of the fake MTV show called Deep House Dish, hosted by two stereotypical gay guys (Kenan Thompson and Adam Samberg), the two ladies came out in tiny black leather outfits with thigh-high black boots, and danced to an electro song before trashing each other.
Then the claws came out and Lady Gaga and Madonna began pulling on each other's hair (the head kind). 10-03-09 SNL photo
"What's wrong, Madonna,” Gaga asked. “Can't get into the groove?”
As the fake cat fight continued, Lady Gaga and Madonna began choking each other. 10-03-09 SNL photo
"Looks like your wig needs a fix!" Madonna replied. A catfight ensued with Gaga and Madonna pulling at and strangling each other.
After Madonna sat on the boys' SNL couch, it became clear that she recently had some plastic surgery. I say, more power to her! She never looked better! 10-03-09 photo
"Guess what Madonna, I'm totally hotter than you!" Gaga said.

"Guess what, I'm totally taller than you!” Madonna retorted. “What the hell is a disco stick anyway? And what kind of name is Lady Gaga? It sounds like baby food!"
But the kiss landed on Kenan, after which Adam jumped on top of the trio, in what can only be described as a mock orgy. 10-03-09 SNL photo
“The kind that’s number one on the Billboard chart!” said Gaga.
SNL host Ryan Reynolds all but got lost in the blinding glamour of Gaga and Madonna, even though he appeared in most of the skits. Maybe if the muscular star had taken his shirt off, things would've turned out better for him. 10-03-09 photo
Then Kenan told them to kiss and make up, but they ended up plastering him with their lips instead, much to the disappointment of all the hetero-males in TV land. In real life the two get along grandly. Madonna recently told MTV she’s flattered that Gaga tells people Madonna has been a big influence on her.

For her first song, Gaga performed "Paparazzi" in a red outfit and feathery headdress, accompanied by three dancers and a live band with synchronized choreography.

She uttered the "Snap, snap to that shit on the radio" line loud and clear, to the chagrin of the censors, who were still reeling from last week’s show, when newcomer Jenny Slate slipped and said the f-word live on the air.

Although Lady Gaga was widely expected to debut her new single, “Bad Romance,” which will be released on The Fame Monster, a double-disc repackaged version of her first album that will drop on Nov. 24, she only gave us a snippet of it in a medley during her encore performance. (You can hear the new song in its entirety in one of the videos below, although she recently twittered: “Leaked next single is makin my ears bleed. Wait till you hear the real version ;)).”

During the second song, she stood still at the microphone, wearing a huge wild gyroscopic contraption that moved around her body while she sang. About halfway through the song she moved to a piano and performed the aforementioned medley of several songs.

Gaga then performed a skit in a plastic-bubble getup with Andy Samberg, who was wearing the same outfit.

They both said they were embarrassed about the "fashion faux paux" before attempting to kiss, which turned out to be impossible with the bubbles between them.

Lady Gaga attended a Billboard Magazine event last week and said that she and Kanye West agreed to cancel their Fame Kills tour together. “It was a mutual,” she said.

Lori Ann Gibson, Gaga's longtime choreographer who worked on moves for the cancelled show claimed on her Twitter feed that “creative differences” between Gaga and West led to the tour's demise.

However, rumors abound that Kanye was/is about to enter alcohol rehab and that he is on the verge of a nervous breakdown over the fallout concerning his embarrassing, alcohol-induced interruption of the 2009 VMA Awards show. It’s also true that music fans are now boycotting him to the point that the booking was suffering from poor ticket sales.
