YouTube's most watched videos of the week: Lady Gaga, soccer and kittens
Sunday 06 December 2009
A semi-professional soccer player out of England might not be enjoying his 15 minutes of fame largely provided by a video of a poorly placed shot. Lady Gaga however, the Fame Monster herself, may be more favorable to the five videos of or about her on Youtube, even if two of them are parodies of her "Bad Romance" video. Other features on the list include a tickled kitten, a drag queen fight and a hobbled pop star.
