I read this and thought "she's never 56" and then read your user name - as it ends 53, and it's 2009, I figure YOU'RE 56?

She's good looking, and writes and sings catchy songs - no shame in admitting to liking that.

I must venture a little deeper into Miss Gaga's music. Saw her recent TV appearance on this side of the pond on the infamous 'X-factor' (final, I have a teenage daughter, I swear ;-)

I think she represents an anti-pop performer.

1) She can actually SING and PERFORM.
2) Has there been a singer that openly says "God" and "Gays" in the same sentence, with both words being used positively?
3) Her look is definately different from other major performers.
4) Her music (IMO) transcends any age group and doesn't just play to the teenyboppers.
5) She is sexuality... her music is deeply sexual, her look is sexual, she doesn't hold back. Unlike some performers who just "act" like it to appeal to a different audience, whether positive or negative.

I like her, but her music is not something I'm interested in. Hypocritical? Not really, I can admit an artist is decent even if it not something thats heavy in my rotation.

just some of the opinions of others in which I found amusing. I may not like her, (It would seem I don't "like" anybody since I don't consume music regularly; I usually pick an artist, year or genre, and seek to complete an anthology... so, I'm really unplugged from whatever music culture pervades the radio and your MTV's) but ...[stalls]... I don't have an opinion either way.


I'll give you this: when I saw her "love game" music video, while I thought it was ridiculous and not very clever innuendo-ized, I still opined that it was a superbly choreographed number, probably the best I've seen this past decade (again, I'm no expert, and I don't make my living watching music videos, actually, I shy away from them more often than I'll watch them, but still...).

  • 10 Hidden Surprises In Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” Video



  • 1. A Star Wars reference

    The poisons: Fex-M3 is from the Star Wars extended universe, Meta-cyanide is from Dune, and Tiberium is from Command and Conquer.
  • 2. “House of Gaga” is misspelled

    It should be “Haus of Gaga.”
  • 3. “Ein” is misspelled

    It should be eins, which means 1.
  • 4. The diner in the video is from the TV show NCIS

  • 5. Gaga's sister, Natali Germanotta

  • 6. A completely random anime reference

    The woman in this scene gets her ass slapped by Tyrese and says “One Piece,” which refers to a popular Japanese anime. Why? No clue.
  • 7. A porn star

    This is apparently Alektra Blue, she's a porn star.
  • 8. The name of the prison

    Not really hidden, but awesome.
  • 9. “Telephone” lyrics in Swedish

    Scrolling at the bottom of the screen are the lyrics to “Telephone” in Swedish.
10. Ms. Mann from Scary Movie

One of the security guards is Ms. Mann from Scary Movie.

You know, I enjoy Lady Gaga to an extent. Vapid pop music has its place, and she's come out with some pretty enjoyable songs.

But... This new song/video is TERRIBLE. I didn't think her lyrics could get worse than "Where are my keys I lost my phone" but the lyrics to Telephone are much worse. Whatever might be enjoyable about the song is then further ruined by the video which is bizarre in a bad way, has nothing to do with the song, and worst of all has terrible pacing.

Anyway, it's disappointing, because I've been entertained by her until now.

P.S. I haven't watched the vid for the "Telephone" song, but I understand with the lyrics. They're bad ... and yet I sing it in my head right now ... **sigh**

Would shallow be a more acceptable adjective to you? Keep in mind, I don't mean this as an insult, I don't expect pop music to be overly thoughtful. That said, I do expect it to be better than "Telephone." It could be worse though, she could be Ke$ha.

Haven't seen the new video she has out, but I heard people on CNN bitching about it this morning. "Too controversial" or something like that. Who really gives a shit? Not I.

The only song I like from her is Just Dance. Catchy stuff. Her other songs aren't bad, I just don't like them too much.

My very alternative new age punk rock Olympia garage band bass player daughter really surprised me when she visited recently and said she loves Lady Gaga...I would have guessed quite the opposite but now I'm relistening to Gaga's tunes and trying to figure out why. Otherwise, I'm please to announce that my nephew and Lady Gaga dated and were a cute couple for a while...they went to music school at NYU together.

I like that she's very "Warholesue", but after about 10 minutes I'm less impressed and looking elsewhere for better music and stage presence.

In truth, I feel her 15 minutes of fame are close to the end.

15 minutes plus years of writing songs for Britney Spears and a few other major artists. I'd say she's halfway between Bowie and Warhol.

I quite enjoy the contrast between her overall style and her genre of music.

I have tickets to see her in August, and I can't forsee it being disappointing in any way. Every production I have seen from her troupe has been spot on thus far.

How did I know you would post in here?

:P

I'm under the impression that pretty much everything GaGa does is for publicity and attention.

So it turns out Telephone was originally written (by Lady Gaga) for Britney Spears. She recorded a demo version, but it was rejected by her label.
