Lady Gaga is famous for creating a spectacle every time she’s out in public, and the June 18 Yankees-Mets game she attended at Yankee Stadium was no exception to the rule.
After the Yankees’ loss, Gaga talked her way past security and into the clubhouse, according to ESPN. Yankees General manager Brian Cashman says that reports that Gaga has been permanently banned from the clubhouse are not true.
“She’s not banned,” Cashman clarifies. “Celebrities aren’t banned. If Michael Jordan showed up here he would have access, but not after a loss.”
In the clubhouse, Gaga wore only lingerie and a half-buttoned Yankees jersey, tossed back whiskey, and fondled her own chest. Because of her presence in the clubhouse, the media – which traditionally gets clubhouse access 10 minutes after the final pitch – was refused entry.
Cashman says that Gaga and other celebrities can interact with players elsewhere in the stadium, but being in the clubhouse after a Yanks loss isn’t appropriate. “There is just a time and a place. It is not her fault,” he states, noting that no security employees were fired over he breach.

Joe Girardi, the Yankees manager, isn’t concerned about celebrities distracting his team from the game. “Our guys know when it’s time to play, it’s time to play, and they’re used to it,” he says. Gaga is a very vocal Yankees fan. At a June 10 Mets-Padres game, she gave Mets fans the finger, and inspired their latest marketing campaign. The Wednesday, June 23 Mets-Tigers game has been dubbed “Go Gaga for Wright” night, campaigning for David Wright‘s election to the National League All-Stars.
