Lady Gaga‘s former assistant is suing her for unpaid overtime. The assistant claims to have been overworked and underpaid, official court documents reveal that Lady Gaga is not pleased. Lady Gaga said, in court, “[Jennifer is a] f**king hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn. She thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe. And, you know what, she didn’t want to be a slave to one, because in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day. She knew there was no overtime and I never paid her overtime the first time I hired her, so why would she be paid overtime the second time? This whole case is b******* and you know it.”
Gaga claims the assistant should have been grateful because being her assistant is a luxury. While travelling the world sounds great, did she ever consider that constantly being on the go, basically giving up contact with your family or friends, all the while being underpaid may not be something you’re grateful for but simply a job that one must do to support themselves.
She said, “It is, like, such an amazing luxury that I get to travel the world and have planes, she doesn’t even see what a luxury it is, but she thinks it’s owed to her for no reason.” The full document reveals Gaga to be a bit of an ego-tripping brat.

• Hillary Clinton departs from office and leaves us with inspiring and heartbreaking words on the struggle for equal rights:
” Now we have placed ourselves at the frontlines of today’s emerging battles, like the fight to defend the human rights of the LGBT communities around the world and religious minorities wherever and whoever they are. But it’s not a coincidence that virtually every country that threatens regional and global peace is a place where human rights are in peril or the rule of law is weak.
More specifically, places where women and girls are treated as second-class, marginal human beings. Just ask young Malala from Pakistan. Ask the women of northern Mali who live in fear and can no longer go to school. Ask the women of the Eastern Congo who endure rape as a weapon of war.
And that is the final lever that I want to highlight briefly. Because the jury is in, the evidence is absolutely indisputable: If women and girls everywhere were treated as equal to men in rights, dignity, and opportunity, we would see political and economic progress everywhere. So this is not only a moral issue, which, of course, it is. It is an economic issue and a security issue, and it is the unfinished business of the 21st century. It therefore must be central to U.S. foreign policy.”
