Lady Gaga SXSW Glasses

Lady Gaga‘s performance and keynote speech at South By Southwest Festival will be historic for several reasons. Not only is Lady Gaga’s performance her first at SXSW, at 27 she’s also the youngest keynote speaker the fest has ever had — and the first woman in 15 years’s.

Mother Monster held the keynote on Friday March 14th.

Her tweet, on the 44th anniversary of the couple’s marriage:

“Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980.”

In a series of follow-up tweets:

“31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into war zone.”

“Together, let’s bring back America, the green land of peace.”

“The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him.”

The image of Lennon’s bloodied spectacles, with New York’s Central Park in the background, was also the cover photo of Ono’s 1981 album Season of Glass.

Congratulations to all the winners and to the nominees for the The 85th Academy Awards! Although not many tend to wear their glasses for the red carpet, a few did – and they looked great! Last year we saw many more. I didn’t see any women with glasses though, did you?
