Lady Gaga's grandfather dies

Joseph Germanotta, the 88 year old grandfather of Lady Gaga, died on 24th September 2010. Gaga had only visited Joseph on Wednesady 22nd. The mature person in me though realises how heartwarming that may be for her in the months to come. It would have been worse if she had not seen him for months.
Whilst touring the UK in May Lady Gaga broke down on stage and told the audience about her grandfather's ill health.
Gaga's boyfriend Luc Carl has been comforting her since her grandfather's death and being as supportive as possible.
The Mail Online has reported that:
"Dozens of messages of sympathy and support for the star have been posted, both at an online obituary for her grandfather and on Twitter.
The obituary in the Star-Ledger said Mr Germanotta had lived in New Jersey. He was self-employed and had served in the Army during World War II. He was survived by his wife of 57 years, Angeline, as well as his son Joseph and granddaughters, Gaga and her sister Natali.
The obituary asked that in lieu of flowers, donations were made to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's research at"
Although they looked sad, Lady Gaga and Luc Carl were spotted in New York on Saturday. As ever Gaga was making a statement piece with her clothing. She was wearing a leotard, killer heels and a leather jacket.
Then again perhaps her grief just made her forget to put a skirt or trousers on.
RIP Joseph
