It takes a lot to overshadow Lady Gaga, especially on a night in which she's the sole name on the “Saturday Night Live” bill. However, after her two musical performances, many people were asking, “Who are those people, and is that actually a job?” For her first performance, Gaga sang “ Do What U Want ,” accompanied by R.

When Madonna declared herself fed up over the "death of creativity" after a world tour in which religious conservatives protested her concert in Poland, fascist skinheads heckled her in France and she received terrorist threats in Russia, the pop provocateur decided she needed to do more to inspire her followers to fight oppression and stand up for human rights.
