    Not quite. We have to see what comes out of her next CD to determine if she's done or not.

    OT but related to Lady Gaga-

    http://www.advocate.com/News/Daily_N..._Gaga_to_VMAs/

    She chose 4 Gay soldiers to escort her to the VMAs yesterday. Nice gesture. I like to see entertainment figures bring current issues to the attention of all.

    I think it's a few months too late for that - she should have laid low after the release of the "Telephone" video.

    At this point, there is SO much hype around her that there is no way that her next album is going to live up to the expectations.

    We get it. You hate pop culture.

    Lady GaGa's inspirtion from Madonna is obvious, but if we're going to go into "derivative" territory, I think she's more like a whitewashed version of Peaches. Or maybe the love child of Peaches and Madonna

    Of course, Madonna wasn't ever entirely original herself.

    I don't buy into her hype, but it's hard to begrudge her for doing something pertinent like that. Even if I don't care for her or her music, I think she's being genuine when she supports LGBT rights.

    Besides a million other things that have already been done, it's funny how people even think she's shocking or creative at all. Hullo, flip back to any episode of Donahue when he interviews Club Kids, there ya go - 100s of teenagers doing it better.

    That's a comment on all her aesthetics.

    The DADT soldier statement, however, ... I give her credit for using the platform she does happen to have.

    For the risk of going OT in this thread, I really have to comment -

    Absolutely right. Back in the 'True Blue' days [late 80s] I remember everyone thinking Madonna was shamelessly ripping off Marilyn Monroe's look.

    Then, she was accused of seriously ripping off Marlene Dietrich's whole gender-bending sexual persona in her 'Blonde Ambition' days [1990]. I read in Christopher Anderson's bio 'Madonna Unauthorized' in 1991 [yeah, I read it ] that a 90 yr. old Marlene Dietrich had been asked about Madonna, and Dietrich replied "Her like me? HA!"

    Here is a video of Lena Morgana, the girl who died and whos mother is saying Gaga stole her style of dress and music. I don't see it at all. She is very talented though. There are pictures of her dressed kind of punk rock, but it looks more Avril Lavigne than Gaga. Pretty song though and she has a great voice.

    I think her mother is looking to make a quick buck off of their connection to gaga. Its actually a good idea. I bet a lot of people have downloaded her music now.

    This is I guesss supposedly the song she did with gaga. Writing credits go to Gaga at the end of the video. It says Ft Lady gaga and I think that is her voice at the end?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKhgj...eature=related

    Also I was just kind of reading about this online and people are accusing gaga of killing Lena LOL. There also apparently is no death record of her. This is actually very interesting.

    Too bad we can't put Gaga on a spit and stick a fork in her because she's pretty much done.
    I didn't get it other than to assume the obvious, that she guaranteed herself the morning headlines. It was only when I saw that she was on Ellen and heard her speak and apparently it has many meanings and that night (not sure if that is VMA night or Ellen interview night, or maybe those were the same night) it stands for
    if we don't stand up for what we believe in, if we don't fight for our rights pretty soon we are going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones

    What the fcuk does that mean Even Ellen looked confused.



    But it's good to know she is the "most judgement free individual on earth", now I can stop waiting for the second coming of Christ.

    I'll only pop in to say that a dress made of raw meat is gross, but only because it'd smell REALLY weird by the end of the night.

    Gaga is pretty talented, and I admire her devotion to being outlandish, because to summon up the energy to keep it up 24/7 sounds exhausting.

    Too late.

    My "open letter" to Gaga...

    Dear Lady,

    We get it. You're a weirdo. You can stop now. Thank you.

    So that's why they call you "adMEANistrator"!

    I am an omnivore, but the problem I have with this is the problem I have with Gaga in general (I don't dare call her a lady) - her attempts to publicize herself. Stuff like this, her outlandish costumes, blah, blah, blah. I think she'd sell tickets to her pap smear results if it got her name in print or her face on camera. She is so unsubtle and obvious.

    But I wouldn't put raw meat on my person either - that is yucky.

    Found a link to this on another site:
    http://eil.com/shop/moreinfo.asp?catalogid=400591

    This record might have been released even before Her Ladyness was born, but again maybe she's not as artistically groundbreaking as she thinks she is.

    I have never heard LG say personally that SHE is original. In fact, she always cites Madonna, Bowie, Grace Jones, and a few others as her inspirations. I think its the media as well as her young fans that do the "she is so original" thing. In fact, in one interview she said "I did not invent bangs and sunglasses".

    But if you do compare her to the pop stars of the last 10 or so years-britney, Christina, Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry etc...she is very different from them and I think that is where the whole "original" urban legend started from. She is not conventionally pretty, she is sexual but I dont think she is trying to get guys horney like the other three, and she plays an instrument and writes and composes her own music. part of trying to shock people is just part of being a pop star these days. But instead of shocking with over the top sexuality like Madonna, Christina, britney, Katy Perry etc...she will just wear a meat dress. I can see how it annoys people but I just think its funny. perhaps others have done it before her, but its not typical of a pop star. Sadly in todays music world image is just as important as talent and if you are boring you can get left behind. Ask Avril Lavigne, Ashlee Simpson, and Michelle Branch LOL.

    .
    True, but she does like to go on about "creating art" like she is the only musical star to ever incorporate artistic influences into what she does, or like her audience is too dense to recognize the art references in her work/image.

    I think the only thing that would really shock me now about Lady Gaga is if she wore jeans.
