In 2011, rumors were swirling that the pop diva was planning to buy on Chappaquiddick. A Vineyard Confidential classic.
The original version of this post was published on MV Patch May 2, 2011 as "Lady Gaga's New Funhouse." Read Holly's new serial novel, "Lady Slipper Farm and the Summer People," on Patch.

There have even been purported Gaga sightings in Oak Bluffs and Menemsha, but now the final word is in and Lady Gaga is not, at least not now, going to be anyone’s neighbor.
