"[Lady Gaga's] not banned. Celebrities aren't banned. If Michael Jordan showed up here, he would have access [to the clubhouse], but not after a loss."

Wearing a half-buttoned Yankees jersey, fishnet stockings and a bikini bottom, the pop singer reportedly swilled whiskey and fondled her chest after talking her way past security, prompting a clubhouse ban from furious Yankees co-chairman Hal Steinbrenner.
