Nobody is really sure how it started but rumours abounded in the entertainment world last night that singer/fashion icon Lady Gaga has got really hairy legs.
Some commentators maintain that the hairy legs jibes first saw the light of day on a satirical internet website, while others say that a legitimate story run by a major media news outlet had inadvertently implied that Lady Gaga has got seriously hairy legs.
Hairy legs expert Doctor Harold H Hoo said that it is possible that Lady Gaga has got really hairy legs, but that the reality most probably would be that her legs were no more or less hairy than the average woman's.
In the meantime, photoshopped images of a hairy legged Lady Gaga have been popping up all over the net, with some entries going way too far by depicting her as a bearded lady, a werewolf, a shire horse, and other things which can best be described as uncomplimentary.
Doctor Hoo told me that if Lady Gaga is indeed suffering from excessive leg hairiness, there is absolutely no need for her loyal followers and fans to panic. It's highly unlikely that the condition will require surgery, and it may be treatable with a razor, hair removal lotion, or waxing. He did advise however that depending on the severity of the hairy leggedness, waxing could be uncomfortable, and in the worst possible scenario, downright painful.
At this point it remains unclear whether the hariness - if the rumours are true - will affect Lady Gaga's ability to dance, or wear certain types of shoe.
More as I get it.
