From the Los Angeles Times (link broken, but he quote is correct):
Lady Gaga has been spending time with internationally known philosopher Slavoj Žižek, if you can believe the heated headlines of the New York Post. Lady Gaga is even more widely known, a pop-culture one-woman phenomenon of singing, dancing and crazy out fits. Žižek, a lively philosopher and theorist, is a critic who often turns his attention to pop culture.
To quote John McEnroe, “You cannot be serious!“
