Lesson 26: Lady Gaga sets Facebook record / VIDEO Script

Hey John, did you read that article on the BBC web-site about Lady Gaga’s Facebook page. Apparently she’s breaking all sorts of records for the number of fans that she’s attracted.

I did come across the article, but to be honest, Al, I hadn’t the faintest idea who she was until I saw it, and then looked her up on Wikipedia. The numbers are staggering, though.

I have to agree there: over 10 million fans. She really must be something. It really shows what a phenomenon she is, but also the huge influence of Facebook. But come on John. You’re really showing your age not having heard of her.

The first I heard of her was when Larry King on CNN said that he was very excited to have secured an interview with her. He was also very impressed that she had gained a spot on the Forbes list of the 100 most powerful celebrities.

Well, I don’t know what planet you’ve been living on. Time magazine has her in its list of the 100 most influential people in the world. She’s also spawned a whole industry of young women wanting to imitate her looks and style. And she took over her top spot with most fans on Facebook from President Obama.

Well, I’m glad that the tech-savvy young people of our time have got their priorities right. Wouldn’t want America’s president to be more popular than Lady Gaga. I still don’t know what she sounds like, but my tastes in music are rather out-dated.

You are a bit of on old fogey, aren’t you?

And proud of it.
