As much as it pains me to even talk about her and give her more attention, I think the question is valid even though shock-jock-types go back as far as they come. But what do you think, is her brand of crazy just fine or do you think she takes things too far? And that's in all areas not just the whole meat thing.

I like Lady Gaga. But then again I like ELO, Daft Punk, and Barbra Streisand.

She's the new breed of music star.  Not a star because her music pushes the envelope, but because her clothes push the envelope.  Sad world.

don't care what she wears, don't care about any of the songs

#6 Posted by Skullo (646 posts) -

She has one good song. That's about it. She's fine though.

She's keeping up with the times.  You saw what Cher walked out in.  Two decades ago, that was risque.  

#8 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

None of the options.  I voted it's fine, though, but that's because she should do whatever the fuck she wants to.  If her thing is wearing really weird outfits and being generally freaky, then good on her for it.

God, you put two incredible acts with two awful acts.  Your tastes are weird and slightly unsettling.
#14 Posted by Mmmslash (2171 posts) -

You didn't give me a "I fucking ADORE Gaga. She brings vigor, individuality, self-expression, and talent to the masses. I am a proud little monster!" option, so I didn't vote.

People were making the same comments about pop stars since the 50s.

#20 Posted by YoctoYotta (541 posts) -

I'm not saying they are true, but I still can't look at her without thinking about the rumors of her being a hermaphrodite. Just say no to potential ladydude.

#21 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

I think she goes too far. I like her voice, but i just wish she would revert back to her younger, more brunette self.

#22 Posted by natetodamax (19220 posts) -

I think she is quite the attention whore.

#27 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

yeah, she is stupid. i don't care about her at all. she is really only popular because of how she dresses and the rumor of her being use to be a guy.

#28 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

At least she's different. You have to give her that. I'm not a big fan of her music, but I respect what she does regardless.

Seems kind of silly that anyone would care so much about what she does. Then again, I don't watch TV so I'm not overly exposed to it.

Why would you view the thread if you all don't care? I don't get it.

I think the best thing that can be said about Lady Gaga is that quite a few of her songs are catchy (that's why they translate so well into 8-bit remixes) even if they're not exactly works of musical genius. I have no problems with her image but the media and public seem to regard her music as much finer work than I do and I don't think they've done a good thing by focusing so much on her image.

She is indeed a huge attention whore, but a good amount of celebrities are. I will say this about Lady Gaga; when it comes to getting publicity for herself, she does one hell of a job -- I watch almost no TV, (note: I'm saying I'm holier-than-thou for not watching TV, there are just no shows I want to watch at this point), don't listen to any radio unless you count podcasts, and definitely do not visit celebrity gossip websites yet somehow I'm still aware that she had "meat" on something she wore. Which I'm still unsure how that even works as I've not seen any pictures of this. Personally I do not care what she wears, or what she staples onto her clothes.  
 
And after looking at the photo @one_2nd posted, I've got to say I do think she is attractive in the trashiest way possible.

#36 Posted by Daroki (717 posts) -

She'll be more Boy George than David Bowie.  I don't think we're going to talk about Lady Gaga's "experimental phase" and laud her music 20 years from now.  To quote Faith No More's "Caffiene": 
 
"Relax... it's just a phase... you'll grow out of it...."

I'm not a fan, but this meat dress intrigues me. I wonder if it's as sexy as that hamburger dress I saw on here earlier... speaking of which, I'm going to go hunt down that thread for another peak at it's pure meaty sexiness.

#39 Edited by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

i think the OP gets it all wrong.  
 
The REAL question is why the fuck do we like her shitty, completely corporate created image at all. she used to be a cute little indy chic from NYU and played piano and sang amazing and dressed really pretty. now shes like this a-sexual thing.  
 i actually dont think ANYONE likes her image. at all. but they just love her catchy pop music. i mean, its not bad i like it. its good pop because its a great to dance to. its not like your supposed to buy her shit and listen to it all day like the new albums Flamingo or Hurley. she makes great music for the club. but my goodness, i hope her style never catches on or clubs will be the most boring and weird place ever. 
 
check out this excellent article that just demolishes her: 
LADY GAGA AND THE DEATH OF SEX

#40 Posted by Wolverine (4281 posts) -

In the 90's you jsut had to be hot to be a famous pop star. In the 21st Century you just have to be promiscuous to be a famous pop star. Examples: "I like it Rough" by Lady Gaga, "I Kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry, and "Take It Off" by Ke$ha.

People seem to have forgotten what Marilyn Manson did in the 90s and their music was atleast interesting without the controvercy(something that Lady Gaga isn't)

from:  http://www.zeitgeistyreport.com/breaking-news/2010/09/13/camille-paglia-demolishes-lady-gaga-in-sunday-times-article-must-read/ 

  

  

 Feminist icon and cultural critic Camille Paglia really lays into Lady Gaga in a recent article published in the UK’s Sunday Times entitled “Lady Gaga and the death of sex”

 … and man did she ever NAIL IT.  

 I couldn’t agree more with what she had to say… check out some of the more viciously dead on excerpts below:

On Gaga’s relationship with her ‘Little Monsters”:

She constantly touts her symbiotic bond with her fans, the “little monsters”, who she inspires to “love themselves” as if they are damaged goods in need of her therapeutic repair. “You’re a superstar, no matter who you are!” She earnestly tells them from the stage, while their cash ends up in her pockets.

On her ‘humble’ upbringing:

Although she presents herself as the clarion voice of all the freaks and misfits of life, there is little evidence that she ever was one. Her upbringing was comfortable and eventually affluent, and she attended the same upscale Manhattan private school as Paris and Nicky Hilton.

On her style:

Gaga has borrowed so heavily from Madonna (as in her latest video-Alejandro) that it must be asked, at what point does homage become theft?  Gaga seems comet-like, a stimulating burst of novelty, even though she is a ruthless recycler of other people’s work. She is the diva of déjà vu.

On her sexuality:

Peeping dourly through all that tat is Gaga’s limited range of facial expressions. Her videos repeatedly thrust that blank, lugubrious face at the camera and us; it’s creepy and coercive…. Gaga, for all her writhing and posturing, is asexual. Going off to the gym in broad daylight, as Gaga recently did, dressed in a black bustier, fishnet stockings and stiletto heels isn’t sexy – it’s sexually dysfunctional.

On Gaga being an “artiste”

Gaga is in way over her head with her avant-garde pretensions… She wants to have it both ways – to be hip and avant-garde and yet popular and universal, a practitioner of gung-ho “show biz”. Most of her worshippers seem to have had little or no contact with such powerful performers as Tina Turner or Janis Joplin, with their huge personalities and deep wells of passion.

On Gaga’s moronic fans:

Generation Gaga doesn’t identify with powerful vocal styles because their own voices have atrophied: they communicate mutely via a constant stream of atomised, telegraphic text messages. Gaga’s flat affect doesn’t bother them because they’re not attuned to facial expressions… Gaga’s fans are marooned in a global technocracy of fancy gadgets but emotional poverty. Borderlines have been blurred between public and private: reality TV shows multiply, cell phone conversations blare everywhere; secrets are heedlessly blabbed on Facebook and Twitter. Hence, Gaga gratuitously natters on about her vagina…

Wow… that was a perfect summation.

What do you Gagaloos think?

You might mind the penis.
#47 Posted by SimbaDoozle (45 posts) -

Definitely too far, I mean what was she trying to prove wearing a dress made of raw beef? Not only does it look ridiculously ugly, but it poses a health hazard as well. Attention seeking comes to mind.
#48 Posted by YoctoYotta (541 posts) -
@Pinworm45: Thank you, I thought I was the only person who had heard she was packing heat.
#49 Posted by iTreefish (63 posts) -
@TwoOneFive:  Yeah, that was an entertaining article.
The author summed up her (and admittedly, many others) music very well in my opinion: "catchy but depthless"
#50 Posted by LoggerRythm (190 posts) -

Uh. I first thought when she showed up that here's another chick trying to live off of controversy, a-la Madonna, and then I heard some interview where she said she gets the power of her music and inspiration from her vagina. Wow. There's a chick that's buying a little too much into her own BS. 
Where's option C? The one that says, "Enjoying her flesh peddling before she ends up in a padded room with Britney and Lindsay." 
I vote for that one.
