    Lady Gaga's Little Monsters

    While watching the VMA awards on MTV on Sunday, I wondered if Lady Gaga read Mercer Meyer's books when she was a child.  As you may remember, Mercer Meyer has a long-running book series on a character called "Little Monster." He also has a character "Little Critter."

    Lady Gaga calls her fans Little Monsters, which I think is supposed to be endearing. It's also a reference to "Monsters," one of her hits on the CD by that name.  It seems to recognize that her fans may be a little goofy, off-kilter, but fun-loving.  She also has the term "Little monster" as a tattoo. She had a temporary tattoo put on in Katakana script in Tokyo. And the fan websites make the link to little monsters.

    What other children's literature references did you see at the VMA?  Last year, Taylor Swift entered the award ceremony in a Cinderella style carriage.
