A New Holiday Is Born This Way! The Taiwanese Announce Lady GaGa Day!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

lady gaga gets holiday in taiwan

But will they get that day off from work???

Lady GaGa will go on a five day promotional tour in Taiwan from July 1 to 5, and in honor of her visit, she's getting her own holiday on July 3!

Here's what the mayor of Taiwan's Taichung City, Jason Hu, had to say about it:

"We have spent a great deal of time and energy inviting Lady Gaga to visit Taichung and we are very pleased to see the success of our efforts…Therefore, we are determined to designate the day as 'Lady GaGa Day.' During the event, Lady Gaga might meet the media and I will represent our city in bestowing upon her the keys to the city."

Such a lovely gesture! We expect EVERYONE in The U.S. to observe Lady GaGa Day as well! LOLz.

Will U celebrate Mother Monster's holiday on July 3?

    oh wonderful. right on my fucking birthday. she better not make a big deal out of this. ……wtf am i saying…

    this is absolutely ridiculous and indicative of how media/celebrity obsessed the world is nowadays. its truly depressing that this mediocre human caricature of questionable talent should have a country designate a whole day in her honour. there are people in this world who give more to humanity each day than this self-obsessed joke will give in her life. where is their "holiday"? Taiwan should be ashamed.

    Re: M: – Madonna has been in several countries lately.. oh wait, she doesn't have a holiday….. YOU MAD?



  8. 8

    She's coming to TAIWAN, not "Thailand"…….
    Since July 3 is Sunday, most of the Taiwanese don't have to work XD

    Re: amycakes86 – girl calm down, sometimes countries need a little humor to keep everything in place!.. they are just acknowledging all their efforts in bringing Gaga into the country that will generate more attention + tourism to the country which usually means, money.



  10. 10

    Oh so I wish!! I live in Taiwan (I'm Canadian) we don't even get Easter holiday or Christmas day off, so defo not.



  11. 11

    Lady Gaga day also known as "Diahrrea Day" in Chinese,,,



  12. 12

    The world is so decadent. There are so many real truly important people but they had to make a holiday over one of the mose useless persons in the world.



  13. 13

    Madonna sang Holiday. Gaga has a holiday. Will the rip offs never end?



  14. 14

    Re: luisforgaga – yes. the far east is exactly the kind of place that thrives on humour *facepalm*.
    unless you're implying that gaga is a complete joke. in which case i can wholeheartedly agree.

    Are you bipolar or something?



  16. 16

    Congratz GaGa, wish it could be a GaGa day all over the world, but every day is pretty much a GaGa day for me. lol

    Re: M: – How many Madonna days does Madonna have?



  17. 17

    She cut off the $$$ P.? Government [s]Hooker[/s]Holiday…I guess you two have had a falling out maybe?

    Frequently we will see high value coupons available at "Printapon" (printable coupons) when a new product is being introduced or when a product is going to undergo a radical change.

    poor country…Taiwan is one of countries which citizens have the lowest ability in English, they probably don't even know what Lady Gaga's songs are about. They don't understand the lyrics, they just listen to the catchy music/ beat without understanding the lyrics. Most of Gaga's lyrics are horrible and garbage. Taiwan should've learned from Lebanon



  20. 20

    Taiwan is well known for producing knock-offs of originals so no wonder they gave Gaga a holiday.



  21. 21

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – I'm worried ’bout you, clinger! lol!!



  22. 22

    Perez needed to get everyone focused on something other than the masterpiece that is The Edge of Glory!! LOLZ!! Pez Head didn't mention that GaGa couldn't get along with Joseph Khan and decided that she should direct this masterpiece herself!! Well, with the help of Laurieann Muff Diver Gibson. Another genius!! Could this album be MORE of a FLOP?!?! Three terrible videos in row!!! Too fucking hysterical…Can't wait for the 'Hair' video!!!!



  23. 23

    Me and my gf love Lady Gaga!!! I saw that special she did talking about her making it big from the beginning and how people used to be towards her… Man, she's real and I love her for the strong and dependent woman she has become!



  24. 24

    Re: KamEva – LMAO!! ”for the strong and DEPENDENT woman she has become!”?! DEPENDENT?! You little turds are too funny!!



  25. 25

    Ladyboys rejoice!!!!!! your fav tranwreck has been glorified with her own day. EPIC



  26. 26

    Hooray!!! Lady Gaga rules.



  27. 27

    Madonna will get her own STREET CORNER!



  28. 28

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – No ned to worry about me, think of yourself first because if it's really you in that picture and you are sincere with what you are saying you need professional help.



  29. 29

    STUPPPIIIIDDDDDD! When she cures cancer or turns into Mother Teresa then I'm all for it!



  30. 30

    But of course we all know that those 'naming days after people' are pointless.

    Here, I'll help you out, M: "A NATION LOVES HER SO MUCH THEY"RE WILLING TO NAME A HOLIDAY AFTER HER. THIS IS SOMEHOW MORE PROOF THAT NOBODY LIKES HER ANYMORE."



  34. 34

    are you f-ing kidding me? dumbest thing I've ever heard.



  35. 35

    Can she just stay there?? Seriously we dont want her anymore!!! PS I wonder how much $$$$$ Gaga had to give Taiwan to make it look like they actually care about her? Probably the amount of $ that could fit in her nose! For real, that thing is like Mt Kilimanjaro!! LOLZ



  36. 36

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – She has an international Madonna day lol



  37. 37

    Re: Starlit – At least I'm a no life that spends it on someone I like compared to you that spends it on someone you obviously hate.
    Re: tiki876 – lol, but seriously, they aren't that alike.
    Re: goingtohell_500 – We? Who are we? Can't be the whole world because there are plenty of people that are dying for more GaGa (not literally of course). You may not like it but she will always be there and you will be watching her. She didn't have to give them any cash because they already love her over there obviously. Stop hating her for her success.



  38. 38

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – What do you mean? They are both holidays people actually celebrated named after them.



  39. 39

    WHY IS EVERYONE SO NEGATIVE GOOD ON YOU MOTHER MONSTER WE LOVE YOU!!!

    Re: tiki876 – Now you lost me, what do you mean?



  42. 42

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – I thought you replied saying International Madonna Day and Lady GaGa Day are not alike o.o



  43. 43

    So awesome. Lady Gaga gets a holiday in a country known for its cheap knock-offs. I guess they know a cheap knock-off when they see one.



  44. 44

    Re: tiki876 – Is there an International Madonna day?

    I live in Taichung, and I'm involved with the local live music scene. Many musicians in Taiwan are upset with Mayor Jason Hu and the city government about Gaga Day, because most other musicians CAN'T play live in Taichung any more. A few months ago, there was a fire at a local bar, and nine people died. It was tragic, and also completely preventable. The city government didn't know how to deal with the public backlash, so they over-reacted and closed most local live music venues (along with hundreds of restaurants, bars, and clubs) in the city until further notice, making it virtually impossible for any band or solo artist to perform live within the city limits. So yeah, great, Gaga gets to perform live on stage in Taichung. The people who live here can't. If the city of Taichung wants positive international publicity, it should probably make sure that the international media doesn't get to talk to local musicians and music fans.
