Fake Lady Gagas
Fake Gaga

"Nina Liotta bought what she thought was a legitimate pair of tickets to Lady Gaga's sold-out July 9 concert at Madison Square Garden, according to news channel Fox 5 (video embedded below). Only after the cash transaction occurred -- totaling $300 -- did Liotta notice that the tickets were fakes." [Ticket News]

When will the hipster ironic Lady Gaga obsession end?

yes, "she" dresses weird and wears funny hats, but the music is completely horrendous.

I lose all respect for anyone who says they like Lady Gaga (or worse pretends to like it to seem "cool").

I lose all respect for anyone's musical taste when they start telling me what not to like.

This is going to turn into one of those lovely little stories about how Lady GaGa calls this girl and gives her front row tickets to her show in October. GREAT PUBLICIST.

"We went on Craigslist... and thought that would be the perfect place to get them."

Clearly Nina doesn't attend too many concerts.

It kind of sucks that her stupidity was rewarded with 2 free concert tickets.

(And that Randy guy is obviously a dick too.)

Some fucker once sold me fakes outside Irving Plaza. I still fantasize about removing his kneecaps with a baseball bat.

Where was Fox News during the AnCo scandal last year?

Posted by Regular reader | May 20, 2010 6:26 PM

She should've bought Maryland Death Fest tickets instead.

AnCo scandal - give me a f*cking break. AnCo - are we really going there?

I have no patience or sympathy for people who buy from scalpers and support after market ticket sales because it just perpetuates the insanity. If you don't get tickets when they go on sale don't go morons! Stop supporting the leeches and assholes- like Stub Hub.

$300 for Lady Gaga. She shoulda spent that money on psychiatric help.

Nina must die.

Posted by Anonymous | May 20, 2010 6:47 PM

That's too harsh, just not getting the tickets would've taught her a lesson.

it bugged me how nina all but asked for gaga to give her free tickets too... then when it was revealed that she got her wish, she was like, barely excited. probably some stupid entitled jappy bitch.

SHAME SHAME SHAME

"Woe is me" not "whoa is me." Unless of course you're Joey Lawrence on Blossom.

people are retarded.

A) TicketMaster prints tickets with blue paper in the middle, just put your ticket to the light. If it glows blue, it's real.

B) Tickets are no longer colored like that, not for NY anyway.

Randy Walker declined to be interviewed?

Why the fuck did they ask him for an interview. Why didn't they do some undercover shit and bust him like "Dateline to catch a predator"? They could have had Nina come out and kick him in the balls or read from the Torah or something.

She looks like every girl I try to talk to on Jdate!

$300 for Lady Gaga?! She could have spent that money on two Cannibal Corpse tix, and still would have had enough money to get a long sleeve tour shirt.

I´m sorry for the girl.

Posted by Daniel | May 20, 2010 11:05 PM

for $300 she could have bought a good bag of weed. that would have lasted a lot longer.

Hey this isn't Fox News. This is just Fox 5 local news.

this is news?

Two comments.

The chick reminded me of the female Julian Casablancas.

A few seasons ago, some black street hustlers were selling fake Sigur Ros tickets outside Grand Ballroom. The kids who bought it and realized they were fakes just seemed bewildered and/or stoned.

I bought a ticket outside Irving Plaza once in 2000 and it was fake. I confronted the seller, who then got all angry and seemed violent, and since he knew all the other scalpers on the block, I couldn't walk away--I had to jump into a cab to escape. Since then I haven't been burned by stupidly buying fake tickets.

Posted by Buyer beware | May 21, 2010 10:21 AM

I watched the video. What kind of (desperate) person meets a ticket seller at a bank ATM???? That's just asking for trouble.

Posted by Regular reader | May 21, 2010 10:27 AM

Fox News helps those who buy tickets to mainstream concerts. But what of the thousands of indie kids every year who buy counterfeit tickets to Broken Social Scene, Sonic Youth, and Stephen Malkmus? What of their tears? Where are their stories?

So many fake tickets for sale at Stone Temple Pilots Tuesday night.
Buyer beware!!

Posted by smack | May 21, 2010 12:23 PM

It's worth paying the markup at stubhub for the guarantee of getting legitimate tickets and the convenience/safety of not having to meet some possible slimeball scalping tickets on craigslist.
