[…] According to the airline, that change will result in savings of about 2.4 million pieces of paper, and it says the cost of the project will be offset by fuel savings from the reduced weight, and additional savings that are expected from “fewer back and muscle injuries caused by pilots carrying flight bags,” which can weigh up to 50 pounds.

Lady Gaga: icon or just eye-candy? | Telegraph

A really excellent assessment by the Telegraph’s Neil McCormick.

Key quote, commenting on a private gig she did in London recently:

At moments like this you were reminded what an extraordinary talent Lady Gaga really is. Strip away the costumes, autotune, synthesizers, beats, dancers, special effects and all the smoke and mirrors of 21st century pop production, and you are still left with a virtuoso pianist, soulful vocalist, masterful songwriter and commanding performer. Often compared to arch media manipulator Madonna, she has a range of skills that leave her role model in the dust: the musicalilty of Prince, the craftsmanship of Elton John and the peculiarity of David Bowie. She is the next stage in pop’s evolution, the girl who seems to have everything.

Her new album Born This Way releases globally on May 23.
