oh.. it's just showbiz. You can't really take any of it too seriously. She seems like a decent person and with her work schedule it's unlikely she could have a stable relationship with anyone other than the drummer. And they tend to combust :>)..
Wow this woman is an idiot. Shame on anyone who buys this commercial garbage.
I wish she would do the world a favor....and stop breathing...
Please... She's the new Madonna... All of it has already been invented, reinvented and perfected. She's smart enough to repeat and recycle and rechannel Madonna of the late 80s and early 90s. But these 12 year olds, of course, don't even know who Madonna is, so for them, Gaga is sui generis.
Just another phony. Someone that's famous for nothing more than being famous. Somehow she mistakes stupidity and lewd behavior to equate to some type of creative genius. Shame on us for buying into this tripe.
She is self serving. She says things to shock people and does things to shock people. Imo, she needs some serious mental health therapy.
As hard as times are I respect any B that can get up and say, "I am whomeverthehellIamtoday!!!" and then be brilliant, which she is and nobody gonna steal nothing from her jina or anywhere else. I am sure Madonna loves her little Mary Magdalene.
Where is this woman from originally ?
If she had learned what a bra does she wouldn't be sagging like somebody twice her age.
you see, now, people complain that the media is whats screwing up their kids, and normally I say it's the parents fault, not the media, but in this case, i cant help but say that it's her fault...
I think she is much better then Madonna. And definitely allot cuter!
I'm by no means the #1 fan of Lady Gaga, but it's hard to deny how influential she's become in today's society. She definitely voices/reflects a lot of the sentiments of the younger and emerging generations. I'm almost positive that most of the angry/rude comments on this article come from an older demographic bitter by the fact that they're being replaced by a younger generation with a different mentality and way of life. I'm by no means saying that Lady Gaga and her comments fully reflect every single young adult, but there are some parallels between her and this rising liberal generation.
fed, you are absolutely, positively a moron of the lowest order. I am pretty sure Lady Gargoyle, who didn't even exist in the public eye prior to this year is NOT the voice of my generation. My contempt for her as a 19 year old is glacially apparent every time one of my idiotic siblings starts singing her praises. I hope her career is short-lived and her vapid appeal is replaced by the "next big thing" by the end of 2010. God, I can only hope...
Lady Gaga advocates celibacy
What an Absolute disgrace
If she won't let me stuff her muff
Then I'll just Poker Face
Ho-hum, another allegedly *shocking,* potty-mouthed, mundane, tasteless, and most importantly TALENTLESS, flavor of the day. Someone remind me, who died and made her important? Can't wait 'til this idiot flavor of the day's 15 minutes are up, what a tragic waste of oxygen...
Love her, hate her...it really doesn't matter what we think, Lady Gaga is laughing all way to the bank! She must be doing something right, especially if we're here discussing her.
WHAT AN OBVIOUS MADONNA RIP-OFF... LADY THIEF-THIEF.
WHAT A JOKE...
She's WAY more talented than Madonna ever was!
just because your generation grew up with madonna doesn't mean that every damn creative, pop artist is some copy of her. have you heard the trash Madonna has put out in recent years? Lady Gaga might have gained some inspiration from Madonna... but thank god she is no carbon copy. You can keep your 1980's, Buddah meditating icon... and just please let Gaga do her thing.
I wonder how many of you all (who think she is the most talentless, idiotic, stupid, ugly, manly etc etc etc singer to ever happen to pop music) read through every single quote one by one... and even had the nerve to scan the pictures presented with each quote. You may not be a fan of pop music, but it is pop music... and she does it well.
She's so damn hot I'd go down on her after one of her two hour concerts....mmmm....scrumptious!!
SO THAT'S WHERE HER BRAINS ARE!
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
IMHO, say what you want about her. She'll cry all the way to the bank, for sure. I've been a musician for 50 years and I believe there is talent there, maybe not your style, but she is talented. Reminds me of Dolly Parton, has enough understanding of the music industry and uses that understanding to her advantage. Over the top, yes, but it's working for her. She does nothing at random. As for her comments, I actually get them. Now you can say something nasty about me if that'll make you feel better.
Everything she says sounds like it came right out of "Zoolander".
lol ok that's hilarious, and so true. Everything she says is very cartoony and extremely calculated, just like her image, it is all calculated, she makes it so obvious.
I hope she gets what she's looking for...."I want you, I want your disease". Yuck.
I think she's bloody brilliant! Keep up the great quotes Mama Monster.
I think her creativity was already stolen... she stole it directly from Madonna! Even that hairdo in the photo is pure Madonna, it was Madonna's signature hairdo already stolen from Marilyn Monroe, Gaga just wears it a little bigger and longer. Gaga is a Madonna carbon-copy for the current generation. Still get a kick out of her just like I did Madonna in her heyday but she's not an original by any means.
Lady Gaga says some crazy thingz even if she means to keep them to her self! I say crazy things like "Lets go hurt my brother" or "I hate fish that dance" its all wierd if you think about it people, but what she said was just to crazy!!!!
I like her, maybe even a little more BECAUSE she's kind of cookoo bananas.
she looks so much like madonna on #11. my mom is always saying that she's the next madonna- that she'll be remembered in 50 years and rappers and other artists won't be. 🙂 she's got talent... some weird quotes, there's no denying that, but she's a really talented musician.
What's up with people's obsession with comparing every female pop stars to Madonna? Christina Aguilera was called the next Madonna, and so was Britney, Lady Gaga is next in line, but years down, there will be somebody else to come along that you will say "She is the next Madonna." Why even compare this woman to the likes of Madonna when she doesn't even have the music and the longevity (it has only been 2 years) to back it up?
She's a Madonna wannabe, no one comes as close to being a direct copy of her. Besides the hair and crazy outfits, Madonna also used to say some very off the wall things just to stir it up. I like both of them.
Lady Gaga is very ugly. Even with tons of make up. Don't understand why she become actress? Probably the one who accepted her is also a blind one. GET OUT LADY GAGA.
She's a musician...not an actress. Do you live under a rock somewhere?
i like turtles
Oh folks, let her be, she is talented in my books, I love her, and her music. I love poker face, it's a great song. She will probably just fad away. Thanks.
Regardless of my opinion of her, she is still the best marketed thing on the planet. Yes Madonna did things like this: Same old song, new lyrics. Another will come along to feed the need of the lambs.
hmmm... not one of those things she said seem strange, just normal 20 something talking. anyway, she's colorful and the music is hot... go gaga!
She's a little "unique' and I forget who posted she's ugly, because she's not, she does have a beautiful face. Her music is good too. Every so often someone comes along to shake stuff up. If you really dont like her let it be because you dont like her music, not because you think she's an idiot, or ugly or a man, etc. It goes back to people disliking anything different from themselves.
I THINK LADY GAGA IS MARILYN MANSON FULLY TRANSFORMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO AGREES!!!!!!!1
Dude whats wrong with you person she said her idle was Maryilin Manroe freakin idiot i would know because lady gaga is cool!!!
Witty and gorgeous, you. morons ~000000
Blurg, she reminds me of Madonna in the 90's. Anything for attention.
I can't stand this person! She's awful.
She is a disease that needs eradicated, NOW!
I got my entertainment of the week 🙂
Lady GaGa is so hot. I would toss her salad in a hollywood minute!
She looks like a Jersey girl to me......
Well, what do I think about "Lady GaGa"? I love her. If she came to my part of town, i would love to see her. I would love to have a back stage pass to just see her. I am 63 yrs old, but in pretty good shape, but that doesn't matter. I am married for 36 yrs but would love to give her a kiss. Oh yeh. What a Babe........
Im GaGa for GayGay. Oops. bending over to fetch my toilette...Im GayGay for GAGA. She leaves me speechless, and I love her. Besides, who else buys their fans pizza? Love her, she is awesome.
i bet none of u have never even listened to any of her music, i know people in real life like u,i call them losers. losers soon become idiots and haters when they call her "talentless" and compare her to other pop acts of put her beneath them..she is worlds above beyonce, or spears, or anyone u can throw out there. how is she talentless when shes been playing piano since 4yrs old, writes all of her own music, all of her own lyrics, was performing on stage since 12...the list goes on and on...beyonce doesnt even write her own songs...listen to her lyrics instead of passing judgement on THE pop talent of our whole generation. especially listen to "speechless" and " you and i" ....i too thought she was the same as the rest...then i listened to her music and lyrics....now i proudly call myself a "little monster"
Are you 12? You write like you are, that might explain your adoration.
She sings brainless pop hooks and has a calculated image. All she has done is ape Manson and added a touch of Madonna.
I'm sick of the argument that because this chick played the piano, that is an obvious sign she is a musical genius. She sings pop music, it's not groundbreaking, it's not deep, it's merely pop music; hooky nonsense.
Ryan is right. I like some of her songs, they are really fun and catchy and her music videos and performances are great, but I don't get some of you fans that act like the type of music she is making stands in the same class as Mozart and that her lyrics should be in the same league as Shakespeare. I mean c'mon, she sings about a Telephone, about a man named Alejandro, about wearing a Poker Face, about the Paparazzi...basically every song of hers is so straight forward, cheesy, corny, shallow, and mindless, why take it as something deeper than that? And why constantly rub it in about how she plays the piano, so what? I can play the piano, does that make me a genius too? Some of you Gaga fans need to seriously calm down, Gaga is fun ear candy, take her and her music and lyrics for what it is!
Lady Gaga is very talented, but boy she has the largest ego of any pop star i've seen or heard in awhile. It's awfully irritating, and her whole "image" is so forced and over the top. Why can't she just sing and perform? For somebody who is so talented she doesn't need to try so hard...
I can't be here. There are too many jealous morons posting vile hate and it reminds me of why our country is in the toilet.
I'm convinced "she's" a dude!!!
What!? She have a fajita! I though she was a Man...
what a bunch of haters !
she is so talented? What are these peoples problems? that she is a women? or that she is successful?
i'm not a hater, she can do what she wants and bless her heart. her music and her act bores me. i would never interfere with her right to do it though.
gaga owes EVERYTHING to Marilyn MANSON. She ripped him off as completely as one COULD. The fact that she's not paying him any ROYALTIES is a crime.
Brilliant or not, she's having fun with her life. I'm not a muscial fan, but may of her songs are really catchy and her looks are outrageous and fantastic. We should all be so lucky to have so much fun doing what we want to do and to be mutli-millionaires at 24. I love that about her.
Can you imagine how loud her snore would be? SNORE! I bet it sounds like a tuba...two tubas...one from each nostril. THEIR IS A HUGE NOSE ON THAT CHICK!!!!
Anyone who can take the spotlight and shine it on to themself and carve out a great bid niche for thier abilities
WE have a histroy of Rehashing the past.........everyone does it........just look at a commercail for Target and Old Navy!
But what critques like these here refuse to acknolwedge is ...... the girl has chops! she can SING! And no this isn't all remixed and digitally master crap like the rest of the Barbie dolls on stage today!
SO GIVE THE GIRL PROPS!!! and go on ..... get going with all little existance ............your no GAGA!
So by your logic then the cast of Jersey Shore is also talented as they draw huge crowds and attract the limelight?
Que Herb Morrison: "Oh, the Humanity!"
Ironically, it's humanity itself that is going down in flames.....
Zombie Jesus...nobody here but you and me got your reference....you rock...these people should learn their history!
Lady GaGa tries WAY TOO HARD! The comparison with Madonna are accurate. However, Madonna (who did it first) does sometimes go back to being just a human being (like her most recent appearance on Letterman). GaGa, though, apparently feels she can't be seen by the public without doing something totally outrageous. "If they're looking at me...well, I've got to do something crazy to MAKE them look at me and KEEP LOOKING!!" And the gullible public looks, of course, the same way they can't keep from looking at a car crash.
Dial it down a notch or ten, GaGa!
EXACTLY. She tries way too hard and comes off as so self-important. She does need to tone it down, because seriously after awhile it gets so old to have her yet again wear another outrageous outfit and to yet again say something that's off the wall. Even Madonna didn't take it to that level. Gaga needs to realize that it is OKAY to sometimes act human, it's called having a balance.
I wish she'd have her fairwell tour already.
Gaga is just a little on the off side, Actually..she is A LOT on the off side, I think if she could marry herself she would!! lol
MAE WEST would be proud of your GAGA isms-GAGA is very very witty indeed!
Trolls are way cuter than real people.
Ho hum. I feel trolls posting here basically repeating mindless dribble over and over about no talent. Let's compare these to the millions that see just how talented she is. Who would you rather believe? Trolls or actual people?
As with most hacks of their generation; until the kids listening to them grow ear drums and seek out talent, let's see where Ms. GaGa is in a couple years.....let's hope she wins some of those MTV awards, so she has something to credit her arrival on thier lame reality shows.....where is Marolyn Manson?
I liked her better when I thought she was a guy...
You have to understand the underlying message she presents. You either dont get it or dont agree with it clearly. Its your choice to like or not like her, but that does not mean she is talentless. She doesnt sell out 20,000 seat arenas nightly for not being such.
The Grammy's are irrelevant. They do not represent 99.9% of the music that exists in the world. As for the MTV awards......they do not represent 99.9999999% of the music out their. BTW, how can MTV have a "music video" award show when the entire network is dedicated to "reality" shows. As for Lady Gaga...yes, she's making money, but as for being shocking, creative, or new, that song-and-dance has been done before many times over. Any performer who has to "market" being shocking and outrageous is neither. Like most current pop stars, she'll fade into oblivion once the new cohort of tweens finds some other trite outfit to follow.
she's like Madonna but without the talent. ever listen to what passes for her "lyrics"?
It doesn't matter if she's talented, a rehash of someone else, or writes poor lyrics. She's getting attention. She's making piles of money. She's "using" the mass media perfectly and it's a lot of fun to watch her doing it.
I don't understand the constantly referencing of Madonna as talented. Madonna did the exact same thing with LESS talent. she does not/did not ever writer her own music. She has pretty much always taken other peoples songs and sang and danced to them. Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, etc. are all doing the same thing. The difference is (I believe) that Lady Gaga writes most if not all of her own music. Madonna and Lady Gaga are using the "shocking" and somewhat off kilter perspective on the world as a way of "marketing" themselves .. nothing more ... nothing less. So I'm a little baffled as to why that qualifies as LESS talent than Madonna.
I don't think some of you GaGa-bashers "get" her at all. The entirety of GaGa - everything she does, everything she says, everything she wears - is a phenomenal marketing ploy. She is extremely smart and knows this kind of thing will get her attention. It's a giant put-on, a Halloween event. That being said, it makes her even more fascinating. I just love watching her to see what she's going to do next and then smile at the attention she gets. I think the Lady must be secretly smiling under her masks as well. What a bravo performance!
phn, i'm sure you're the same idiot who gushed over paris hilton when she was the media's flavor of the month. baa like the sheep you are.
Looks are irrelevant last i checked when it comes to talent. Obviously that hate filled post of yours is simply an opinion. Shes unorthodox which makes her interesting, and she can sing to boot. No lip syncing or effects. You dont like her thats perfectly fine, but don't bash that which you dont understand.
most rock bands and many artists do way worse then snort coke. DO you drink? Its a vice as well. Maybe not as bad, but nobody is perfect.
As a matter of fact, I do not drink. I understand that lots of people have vices, but what makes hers influential? I have seen nothing in her short career thus far that makes her special other than her god awful annoying songs.
"Don't understand"??? Oh.. yeah... there is so much to understand there!
Kudos to you for not drinking, I don't either. I am not trying to be rude, but what do you mean? She has brought forth a voice for kids, and gays alike. She has donated all the money from some of her concerts to Haiti, not to mention oil clean up, and protested against the Arizona Law, and BP. She has brought awareness to AIDS, and has supported celibacy in youth. So what if she did drugs, everyone in California does, none the less even our president has, plus most of population. That is the world we are living in. Many young teenage girls look up to her, and by being so crazy, she has reminded kids, once again, of something kids forget, that being different is okay. I love Lady Gaga, and I am forever a little monster!
It's very clear you have no clue what you speak of. Over 15 million albums sold, numerous award nominations, and voted by TIME magazine as one of the most influential people in the world today. Clearly no talen /sarcasm. Numbers don't lie my friend. How would we all go blind im curious? Very weird statement there. Do your research on her then get back to me with the facts.
You're reading that rag right now, you fool.
She has a very large nose. It's an extra-large nose. It is so very very large.
@jdf Who cares about the size of someone's nose, or any other body part? Is there a rule that we should all be tall or short, fat or skinny, with long or short hair, with blue or green eyes? You get the idea. Embrace diversity, something like a "big" nose make you who you are.
She's from Jersey!!!
I whole heartedly agree with Thingee! Would hit that anywhere, anytime.
clearly she has no talent. because talent alone with her, she'd be buried 6ft under already. She NEEDS to be like this in order to get anywhere.
if everyone today became blind and nobody could ever look at her again, she'd disappear very quickly and we'd never know of her anymore.
but because we're such suckers for different and the unusual, she has us right where she wants us.
I think you're not correct about her not having any talent.
She was writing songs for others for some time before she herself became famous as a performance artist.
Her appearances and shows are very entertaining and nothing like anything else today.
She has a great voice.
What talent does she not have?
Hey Russ, did you know that not only does she write her own music, but she designs her own costumes...she's been playing and writing since she was a child!!!! She has gone to exclusive music schools... and just because she is Lady Gaga now, doesn't mean you can't go onto youtube and check her out before she became GAGA. She was and is amazing.......what have you done with your life that you can say has touched millions of people???? Jerk!
anyone who thinks gaga has no talent obviously hasn't seen or heard any of gagas stuff . i'm not into gaga but she can sing and play piano like a pro. and she does write her own stuff and design her own costumes.
I'm tired of people saying she has no talent. She does have talent, she is a very acomplished songwriter and pianist. But the majority of her songs before the "Gaga" phase were things that appealed to people in Europe, especially places like France and Germany. That stuff doesn't sell well here so she changed it up and created "Lady Gaga." So obviously she has the talent because she changed her entire repotior (sp?) without a hitch. Many of the songs you hear started off as more "highbrow" concert pieces that did well overseas and changed to excite the youth and comnsumerists of America.
Is she weird? Yes, but even she admits that.
Is she outlandish and over-the-yop? Yes, and she admits that too.
Is she an untalented hack? No. She has more talent for her passion (music) than you probably have in your whole life.
I still want someone to tell me who really cares who gives a crp what pretend people like her say or think
I love Lady Gaga, and the fact that she says things out of the blue like she does, makes her just as human like as anyone. Now, all of you might be old boring stick in the muds, but some people like to have some adventure in their life, and I praise her for what she has done. Now I don't know about you, but she isn't like other singers, who make being famous so out of reach. So, I don't care what you guys all say, but I am going to her concert. Keep rocking Gaga!
Is she crazy and weird or just different from everyone else? You don't have to love her or her music but bashing her simply because she is different isn't right.
With 6 Grammy noms and 13 MTV VMA noms, she is laughing all the way to the bank and doesn't care if people bash her or not. She is brilliant.
She is defiantly not brilliant, it does not take brilliance to copy the past. That being said, of course she has had nominations and wins and whatever, when a new star comes on the horizon and makes it big with the young ones they do make the top of the list, but just you watch. It will get old real fast then the next new thing will make their millions and we move on.
Yeah Sherry, that's what they said about Madonna too.
you are right sherri. last year it is was taylor swift. It seems one day you're in the next day you're "OUT".
Oh, how sweet, Ron. It's just not right, now is it? Geez, give me a break. Gaga or GooGoo, or whatever ridiculous name she wants to use is nothing but a no-talent, drug addled moron that has succeeded in suckering millions of people out of their money. She is living proof that P.T. Barnum was right when he said "There is a sucker born every minute". Get a life, people.
Actually Rob, David Hannum is responsible for that quote... not Barnum. Ref. the history of the "Cardiff Giant".
Clearly not a man!
I love that each photo of her she looks so amazingly different....now that's just STYLISH....
It's all been done, there is nothing stylish about it. Nothing new, no shock value. And the things she says are so off the wall they make her look like and idiot.
go GAGA!!!! The first refreshing woman in a long time!!!
I've seen better and more 'interesting' hairstyles on David Bowie, back in the day....lol
And how can we talk about hairstyles without mentioning Patti LaBelle – remember her hairstyles. Now THAT'S real creativity 🙂 Check out her ever changing "do's"!
Such a sloven person... ignor her for your own sanity!
Your right..... she is just a freak.....much like other pop so called stars. No talent there.
I'm not sure if she's crazy or trying to be witty and amusing. She's missing the mark if it's the latter and proving hands down to be the former.
LG makes more sense than Sarah Palin. And which of these 2 women wants to be taken seriously.
She definitely seems crazy but i don't think "missing the mark" is an accurate term.I think if she was missing the mark she wouldn't have the fan base she does,and(of course)you wouldn't be reading this article. I beliveve eccentric fits her a little better.
Geezus this woman is an idiot. Shame on anyone who buys this commercial garbage.
She's an "idiot" and rich and famous. You're "brilliant" and making snarky remarks while behind an online screen name.
I'm not really a fan of LG, but it does make me wonder who the real idiot is...
Shame on you for being ignorant.
Yes she is a garbage...
How did the Taliban get access to this forum?
@asdfghjkl: They're both idiots, you idiot!
Dude, it's all an act. That's all it ever was. She knows how to constantly make headlines with her statements, her fashion, her demeanor. All that equals butts in the seats and record sales. And it's WORKING. She's a gazillionaire. She's the Madonna of our age and the current queen of pop.
Personally, I like her because she took her name from my favorite Queen song.
Marco, not sure how old you are but over 40 years ago there was another flamboyant performer who did over-the-top things, wore outlandish costumes and constantly said outrageous things. He was obviously gay though never really said so (the times and all). He was a piano virtuoso but chose to ham it up on schmaltzy tunes to please a mass, low-brow audience. He took a lot of heat from high-brow types and snarky comments in the press. And no, it wasn't Elton John. When once asked about how he "felt" about the criticism, Liberace replied, "oh I'm crying...crying all the way to the bank." Fast forward through the years and you get Elton, Madonna and now, this trollop and a hundred lesser wanna-bees. Some have real creative talent, some don't but have simply got the shtick down pat.
Other comments here have it right. The whole shtick is a calculated formula and commercial strategy to sell to another generation of young people who fancy themselves fiercely individualistic but are in fact part of a lowing herd. There is nothing so conformist as an "individualistic" youngster, and not so young youngsters in our culture these days, and if you can find a formula to appeal to a segment of them you will get rich. The best kind is that, like Gaga and her predecessors, allow the person to flatter themselves that they're rebelling and breaking away when they are really just filing into the cattle chute with all the rest.
People like garbage.
Yeah, a real idiot. She only made $62 million so far this year. But I'm sure the opinions of haters on internet message boards really matter to her.
Whoa, whoa, wait a minute! Have you actually seen her perform live? Why is Lady Gaga such a unique talent in today's shyte, computer-simulated music industry?
1. Lady Gaga can sing. Really well. And without the need for computers in the studio to fix inaccurate intonations (off-key singing). Just download her live SNL performance - this is no Ashlee Simpson lip sync'ing no-talent, wannabe.
2. Lady Gaga actually plays an instrument: The piano. Really well. Not just a couple of chords but this woman actually knows what she is doing.
3. Lady Gaga backs up her talent with true Vaudevillian showpersonship. She has the panache of Madonna but with much more than average talent (sorry, Madge).
I will go as far as to say that Lady Gaga is not the Madonna of her generation, she is the Elton John of her generation!
I dont think her creativity is being stolen thru her fajita, but rather the other end maybe
LOL!!! so true this... other than being extremely talented at getting attention .. she is a carbon copy of an artist
Hmmmm.....I've never looked at it as eating a woman's creativity
She should go live in an Arabic country for a month or so and see how she dresses then hahahahaahah what a bonehead she is, another Jennifer Aniston.
