What is it about Lady Gaga that's so appealing? Her visit to Houston was closely followed by CultureMap readers, snagging three of the top five most viewed stories of the week.
Gaga finally overshadowed Lois the corpse flower, who had her swan song, but not before the voice of the wildly popular CorpzFlowrLois was revealed at a rollicking midnight party at the Houston Museum of National Science. It was none other than CultureMap's own Steven Thomson.
