WebPulse: A terror alert, Gaga flight vid, bacon art

[cnn-video url="http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2010/10/04/lok.robertson.europe.terror.alert.cnn"%5D

Searching for alert details - An alert was issued for Americans traveling in Europe to be extra aware of their surroundings. Western intelligence officials said they'd learn of a terror plot. Details about the plot were not released but many people were trying to figure them out anyway. Throughout Monday morning and much of the afternoon, "terror alert" was the most searched term on Google and Yahoo.

CNN reported that a group of jihadists from the German city of Hamburg is alleged to be at the heart of an al Qaeda plot targeting European capitals. The news was being linked to the July arrest in Afghanistan of Ahmed Sidiqi, a German citizen of Afghan descent.  Sidiqi was questioned at a U.S. air base at Bagram but has not been charged. CNN talked to his family.

Authorities told CNN he is cooperating with investigators. Watch what the White House said

Daily dose of Gaga - That story competed for Web love with a strange and amusing flight safety video inspired by Lady Gaga. The viral video shows Cebu Pacific Air flight attendants demonstrating safety rules as Gaga's "Just Dance" plays. NewsPulse wants to know when Gaga isn't going to make headlines. We expect to come in the office on some morning and see she's taken over White House press briefings wearing a neon codpiece and necktie.

Gaga. Weird. Outfits. Meat. Bacon. Kevin Bacon.

Tasty art - Someone has finally created a bacon sculpture of Mr. Footloose. Sure, it's subversive. Jeff Koons would dig it. It's being auctioned off to benefit kids with cancer. But, we're hungry. Where's the giant potato?

    Lady Gaga is a twentysomething who is not very smart. Give her an I.Q. test and the result would be average.
    She a singer who just knows how to wiggle her butt.
    Since I'm on a singer, let me go to Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift has damaged her carreer. She let herself be used then forgave the, he's not a black person, he's the Mark Furman version.
    Madonna would have said, f u. That piece of garbage can go to Hell. Never ever sang about forgiveness. She would have sang about kicking some black guy (Mark Furman version) in the balls. But they would have never got away with pulling that on Madonna in the first place.
    Also anyone who believes Beyonce is all nice and everything. She is a gorgeous, calculating, cold hearted, ruthless, intelligent demanding witch with a b instead of a w. I really like her alot.

    correction: She's a singer who just knows how to wiggle her butt.
    Some things are worth repeating. Lady Gaga repeats stuff in her butt wiggle songs.
