Rather, we’re talking about their poor judgment in taking a performance from the hottest pop star on the planet and cutting it down from six and a half minutes to five without permission. Needless to say, Gaga is livid!

Chosen by the readers of Time Magazine as 2010's Most Influential Artist on the Planet, her magic is not something Fox or anyone else should be messing with.

Here’s how it went down: “This is a woman who's dominating the charts and pushing the pop-culture envelope," Ryan Seacrest told the audience as he introduced Lady Gaga. In a pre-taped performance, Lady Gaga took to the stage with a large group of shirtless male backup dancers.

Dressed in a black lace body suit, cape, and veil designed by Armani Privé, Gaga surrounded herself with a hot gaggle of shirtless dancers. Halfway through the performance, she dropped the cape and began writhing on the floor. Her American Idol performance was taped after last week's elimination show.

Check out this short article on Lady Gaga written by Cyndi Lauper:
I first heard the name Lady Gaga through a mutual friend. He couldn’t stop talking about her. Then I heard her music, and I thought, Wow, I love this kid.

People forget how young she is. She is barely 24 — much younger than I was when I became famous. It’s very tough being where she is right now. People are pulling her in all different directions. It’s hard to navigate that. Try to imagine what you were like at her age, if you still can. I can’t wait to see how she grows and what she decides her next act will be.

She only has two albums out, but already she is inspiring other artists to go further in their own work. When I see somebody like Gaga, I sit back in admiration. I’m inspired to pick up the torch again myself. I did an interview with her once, and she showed up with a sculpture on her head. I thought, How awesome. Being around her, I felt like the dust was shaken off of me. I find it very comforting to sit next to somebody and not have to worry that I look like the freak. She isn’t a pop act, she is a performance artist. She herself is the art. She is the sculpture. END.

Extra’s Terri Seymour caught up with Lady Gaga to talk about her new video, following Gaga’s racy performance on American Idol Wednesday night, May 5, 2010. Lady Gaga is currently prepping a video for her new single, “Alejandro,” and tells Terri, “I’m shooting this video with Steven Klein. I’m so excited, but like all of my videos, I don’t know what it’s going to look like until it’s finished.” The pop star is constantly on the go — so how does she keep it up? “I’m really not that tired. Of course, I get tired… it’s my passion for my fans,” she said. “It’s their messages, they send me these beautiful videos… I must have thousands of beautifully laminated books with stickers, photos, sketches, poetry, they call me Mother Monster now.”
Her Ladyship also reveals that although she sings about her “Poker Face,” she “sucks” at playing poker and that her inspiration for the song came from a party. “One of the inspirations from Poker Face was these parties I used to hold on Sundays at my friend’s house in Brooklyn, and all the boys would get together and play Texas Hold ‘Em and I’d make margaritas and spaghetti for everybody. Believe it or not I’m an excellent cook, so no, I suck at poker,” she said. May 5, 2010.
