Lady Gaga, fire your PR/Marketing person pronto

Although I really don't think anyone cares (as I haven't seen this mentioned on any blogs or on the YouTube channel) that there is a glaring TYPO in this commercial, I'm posting about it.

Sheesh!!

Is this world we are living in that grammatically challenged?

Now I know I make spelling and grammatical errors in this blog often, but I don't have people whose job it is to make sure that these types of errors are (or are not) caught and corrected.

Arghh again.


Okay I feel (a little bit) better now.  Off to make relish.

  1. Why does the apricot have to be pulverized? And the tiger heart crushed, and the belladonna crying?

    That note list is a metaphor for Lady Gaga herself: avant-garde and trying too hard.

    1. Hey Joan - I never thought about those notes being a metaphor for her!

  2. Ha! I am still giggling at your subject line. I watched this video a few weeks ago on another blog (maybe the Candy Perfume Boy?) and didn't get through it. I mean, really?!

    Thanks for the laugh. :)

  3. Maybe it was translated by someone who doesn't understand contractions vs possessives?

    1. Sonia, probably - but you would think that someone would have noticed this before it went on the interwebs!

  4. And (it's) likely that the perfume is up to the same standard. Just read about the StyleList picks and bravo to you Frida!

    1. hahaa re: your it's!! Grr that bugs me still, even though I have already ranted about it! hahaaa

      Thanks so much BA - I'm still so bewildered by it - I am in no way shape or form one of the 'best' but it sure is nice to be in print

  5. I'll add my congrats for the StyleList shout-out (although still irritated at them for slagging on Coromandel, the heathens).

    And here's where I admit that just last night while snuggling with The Engineer after the Wild Things were in bed, watching an old episode of Stargate with subtitles (my favorite way to watch TV), I had to pause and have a brief rant about the incorrect spelling of Chronos. I hate it when subtitles are wrong.

    1. Hello D! I'm irritated about that too! I love Coromandel! Another thing to make me go arghhhh!

      hahaaa - I would have been ranting too.

  6. By no means the first mistake of "it's" kind, either! : - )

    1. hahaa, it sure isn't!

      oh the poor Gaga - even in a letter to fans, she uses the wrong its/it's: ""....I am feeling blessed to have removed those from my life driven by money and luxury, ITS all about the art of it. I feel free today. Thank you for always being there for me monsters."

      Okay I'll leave her alone for now!

  7. I would like to collect up all the unnecessary apostrophes in the world and make Lady Gaga a stage costume out of them.

    1. Warning: the outfit will be much less sexy and revealing than Gaga is used to. Once all that misapplied punctuation is knitted together, it will result in a gigantic opaque Mrs. Roper-style muu-muu w/ a 90-foot train. Break a leg, Gaga!
