‘World`s hippest philosopher’ Slavoj Zizek catches Gaga’s attention

New York: It has emerged that mysterious Marxist Slavoj Zizek, dubbed ‘the world`s hippest philosopher’, has befriended Lady Gaga.

Eyebrows were raised over the pop star`s decision to spend a lot of time with the 62-year-old, bearded, postmodern theorist and pal of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange while she was touring the UK and US this spring.

Sources say Gaga and Slovenian-born Zizek - who like Salman Rushdie seems to be intellectual catnip to beautiful women and who was once married to Argentine model Analia Hounie - spent time together discussing feminism and collective human creativity.

The pop star also agreed to support Zizek at a March rally in London when the lecturers` union UCU was on strike.

In a recent blog post titled ‘Communism Knows No Monster’, Zizek called Gaga ‘his good friend’.

“There is a certain performance of theory in her costumes, videos and even (some of) her music,” the New York Post quoted him as saying.

Gaga`s rep declined to comment on her relationship with Zizek.
