Around 300 Lady Gaga Books Sold at New Museum

Photo by K Webster.

Lo-Down reader K Webster snapped this photo early today high above the New Museum, where fans camped out on the sidewalk for a chance to attend a book event next Tuesday night featuring Lady Gaga and celebrity photographer Terry Richardson.  In order to score a ticket, you had to buy a copy of “Lady Gaga X Terry Richardson” ($54).

We hear about 300 copies were snapped up shortly after the museum opened at 10 a.m.  There’s no doubt they could have sold a lot more but Lady Gaga’s people wanted to make sure everyone who bought a book gets a chance to meet her.  Gaga and Richardson were excited to hold the event in the neighborhood due to their Lower East Side ties and the New Museum Bookstore was happy to oblige.

Did you score a ticket today? If so, we’d love to hear from you. You can contact us at tips@thelodownny.com.

    just wanted to make sure the comment I sent with the photo was included!
    So while Occupy Wall Street is bulldozed for free speech against corporate crime… we have our neighborhood weighing in to the fray with it’s own protest against the clearly visible income inequality between hedge fund Numu and the SRO guys …oh wait…. it’s just fans lining up to buy a $50 book to be signed by Lady Gaga. love her music but with news of todays OWS destruction it just looks so sad.
