I’ve been working out a lot more lately. It feels good, and heaven knows I have the time (super regular hours at the *new* job). I’ve also taken the cue from Lucy Actually and started running. Right now I’m on week four (I repeated week three two times) of the Couch to 5k. But really, more on all that later.
Anyway, since Lady Gaga’s latest album leaked, I’ve been OBSESSED with it. It is, without question, the best soundtrack for any cardio workout. I can’t get enough of 90% of them, but my recent obsession has to be “Hair.” The lyrics are a little weird, but you know… Lady Gaga is weird. So it makes sense. And I promise you – there is nothing better than running hard, having my long ponytail swing from side to side, sweat flying (sorry, treadmill buddies) and hearing:
I’ve had enough,
This is my prayer,
That I’ll die livin’ just as free as my hair…
It makes me feel invincible. I highly recommend you download this record at your earliest convenience.
In the meantime, check out Lady Gaga’s slowed-down performance with a bald head. Brings another level of hotness to an already hot song:
I just wanna be free,
I just wanna be me,
And I want lots of friends that invite me to their parties.
Don’t want to change,
And I don’t want to be ashamed,
I’m the spirit of my hair,
It’s all the glory that I bear.
I know, I know… it’s not a shock that I’m pimping out Lady Gaga. Clearly I’m one of her biggest fans. But lady gives good music.
