Almost immediately after she deposited herself in a corner booth at L'Espalier, the restaurant at Boston's Mandarin Oriental Hotel on the December afternoon after the first American date of her Monster Ball tour, Lady Gaga made a confounding statement. "I don't see myself as ever being like anybody else," said the 23-year-old known to her mom (eating lunch nearby) as Stefani Germanotta. "I don't see myself as an heir." Yet there she was, in a blond Hollywood bob and black tuxedo-bra combo much like the costumes Madonna wore 20 years ago, discussing a show that conjures the spirits of Michael Jackson, David Bowie and the punk-rock drag queens of downtown New York and promoting music -- the newly expanded edition of her 2008 debut album, "The Fame," greatly enriched by eight new songs and repackaged as "The Fame Monster" -- that pays blatant homage to ABBA, Queen, Eurodisco and Marilyn Manson.

A veritable A-list of artists, actors, fashion designers and business leaders  streamed into the Hammer Museum in Westwood Saturday to celebrate artists Barbara Kruger and Cindy Sherman, raising a record $2 million for the museum's exhibitions and programs. MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and actor/author/musician Steve Martin delivered the night's tributes. As if their talks weren't entertaining enough, the finale came courtesy of Katy Perry, who has a busy week in store with performances planned at Sunday's fundraiser for President Obama   and at  Thursday's amfAR Inspiration Gala.

Cindy Sherman's Hollywood-puncturing "Untitled Film Stills"--photos recently sold to the Museum of Modern Art for Hollywood-style money--feature their maker in a variety of counterfeit movie poses intended to evoke the irony of the familiar, the seductive glamour of the superficial. As a work of art, they're a one-joke routine. But they're also funny, at least in the fleeting light of first impression.
