‘Blinged-out’ 86-year-old among Lady Gaga’s biggest fans
Inez Whitfield may just be one of Edmonton’s hippest seniors. She’s also one of Lady Gaga’s biggest — if not one of her oldest — fans.
Monday’s concert at Rexall Place is the 86-year-old’s second Lady Gaga experience.
The retired teacher once again got decked out in a feather boa and a lot of sparkle for what she says will be “one of the most special nights of [her] life.”
“We decided to ‘bling it up’ as best as we could…because it’s a sparkly night,” Whitfield said.
The senior, whose caregivers nicknamed her “Granny Gaga,” was able to get a special pass from her care centre to go to the show.
It may be just what the doctor ordered; in the last two weeks, Whitfield has undergone two emergency surgeries. Her daughter, Kendra, thinks the anticipation of Monday night’s show is what helped her recover.
The senior explains that what she loves most about Lady Gaga is her youthful energy. She also feels there’s a lot of warmth and love beneath all of Gaga’s glitz and the glam.
Being fathers is getting our daughters up at 5:30 am making breakfast getting them dressed for school and putting them on the bus by 6:30 .This is a typical day in our household . It’s not easy but we enjoy every moment and eveny minute of #fatherhood . #proudfathers #blackfathers #prouddads #gaydads
Okay I’m reblogging this again because I want to point out how beautiful this is and the sheer number of stereotypes it disproves. The stereotype that a gay couple cant be good parents. The stereotype that men know nothing about caring for girls’ hair. The stereotype that all gay men are feminine. The stereotype that black men abandon their children. The stereotype that people with a lot of tattoos aren’t caring. The stereotype that black people are too lazy to care about things like school- This picture is a beautiful thing and I love everything about it and it makes me regain confidence in the world we live in
You forgot one very important stereotype: that gay men are white.
This blows that nonsense outta the water. Right here. Right now.
I love seeing this one go by on my dash. For all the above reasons, and because it’s just so lazily domestically cute, and because, being a white woman, society basically tells me that these two are out to mug/rape me, and that’s all I need to know. IT’S SO MUCH BETTER KNOWING BETTER.
This post made me cry. It’s so beautiful in it’s ordinariness.
