Jerry Seinfeld on Lady Gaga: 'This Woman Is a Jerk'

Although taken in context, it appears it might have been a comedic opportunity rather than the start of a superstar war between the two New Yorkers with big personalities.

After Lady's bad behavior at a Mets game (while in Seinfeld's box seats) and the desecration of the Yankees uniform at last week's game, Seinfeld let loose on WFAN sports radio.

Naturally a baseball fan is going to take umbrage with a celebrity upstaging the game at hand. Whether Seinfeld's rant was in actual anger or as part of a running monologue isn't clear.

This riff makes it sound like part of the act:

"You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?" he said.

In his trademark stand-up schtick, Seinfeld added, "Why is she giving the finger? How old is the finger? How’d it even get to be the finger?"

Although the comedian does make a very fine point, funny or not:

"I'm not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about [how] you need exposure -- you could die of exposure."

Do you think Jerry was bashing Lady Gaga, or performing a stand-up routine?
