Lady Gaga Hits a Foul at Citi Field

NEW YORK (CBS/AP) The New York Mets don't need more bad press.

But that's what the team got Thursday night when Lady Gaga decided to take in a game at Citi Field.

Photos taken during the opener of a day-night doubleheader between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres showed the pop music star making an obscene gesture. The Mets say she did not attend the second game.

Known for her wild wardrobe and songs such as "Paparazzi,'' Lady Gaga grew up in New York going to Yankees games with her father. She was in town this week for her sister's high school graduation.

It was unclear what prompted the obscene gesture, first from her seat behind home plate and later from a luxury box, but some have speculated she was upset at photographers taking her picture.

If she didn't want to stand out in that crowd of T-shirt-wearing, baseball-capped fans, why in the world was she dressed in her "Telephone" costume? A metal-studded black leather bra and matching knickers are bound to be noticed, no matter who is wearing them.
