First, she attends a screening of 'The Great Gatsby' in NYC, arriving fashionably late, marking the fact that she is coming out of hibernation after recovering from hip surgery in February, which caused the tabling of her Born This Way Ball. Now, Lady Gaga is really getting back into action, giving an impromptu performance at a New York bar last Thursday, May 9.

Gaga lives to perform, so it's got to be eating her alive to be off the stage. She satisfied her hunger to entertain by getting on stage at the Rose Bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel in her native NYC. Those were some lucky bar patrons right there.

Mama Monster joined jazz singer Brian Newman for a duet of 'Someone to Watch Over Me.' Newman, who also plays trumpet, has worked with Gaga in the past and she has joined him on stage previously, as well.

Newman tweeted about the impromptu gig, thanking Gaga for her participation.

We would have severed a limb to have been there and to have seen that.

Gaga is slowly but surely returning to public view. It's been said that a new single might drop this August – with her dad Papa Joe Germanotta as the source -- with more activity rumored to be swirling in September.

We're just glad she is coming back to us, even if it is piecemeal fashion. Good things come to those who wait, right lil' monsters?
