She is pretty gross.

"I dig way down into my soul and I find that place where I was born to be an artist, and it carries me through. I am everything about what I do. Every marrow in my bones and blood is for this work. GaGa is the greatest creative journey of my life."

Just like Dalton from Road House.

i am not sure why i dislike lady gaga as much as i do. as tim said, she has all the elements necessary for an infatuation for me but somehow she just pushes it all too far. as with the popstars i do like, which include britney, there still some human element i can cling to. britney became more interesting as soon as she became more human. with lady gaga it all seems a bumbling art project gone wrong. i like robotic voices but only if they are presented by something which seems human. also the name. urgh, so so so wrong.

that quote could've come from any solo girl out there. big deal.

i like the mask she wears in the new vid (esp. as it hides her annoying hair).

I am still somewhat convinced she is a tranny.

nosotros niggamos (HI DERE), Thursday, 12 February 2009 19:40 (eight years ago) Permalink

I don't think so. She styles herself like one.

The Reverend (rev), Thursday, 12 February 2009 21:13 (eight years ago) Permalink

Oh it's very clear that she isn't, or that she's had surgery if she has, but almost everything about her screams TRANNY!

I might like her more of if she was a tranny. Except then I think: the drag queens who are like Lady Gaga I'm not so much into. I prefer my drag queens more... blowsy? Mrs Havisham-esque?

Which is why that chick from Scissor Sisters going solo probably would have been a better version of Lady Gaga than Lady Gaga is, esp. if she'd gone hyper-commercial too.

She'd be like the tranny version of Fergie, rather than the tranny version of Christina Aguilera's new look.

Tim F, Thursday, 12 February 2009 21:19 (eight years ago) Permalink

I am trying to imagine the tranny version of Fergie and all that comes to mind is:

fergie is already her own tranny version, surely

lex pretend, Thursday, 12 February 2009 21:22 (eight years ago) Permalink

Well the same applies to Christina Aguilera surely?

Maybe this points to the super-double-pointlessness of the entire Lady Gaga Project.

Tim F, Thursday, 12 February 2009 21:23 (eight years ago) Permalink

also:

standard lily allen interview with jonathan ross, but wait for the gaga mention at 3mins in. it's worth it.

sounds like if paramore were writing songs when they were 15

Woah, I really like that. The way she sings "some may say I need to be afraid of losing everything..." makes it sound deep. Deeper than the song actually is admittedly. Is the guy interviewing her supposed to be a send-up of Perez Hilton?

^just as a prophylactic against any "everybody has a bad shot sometimes" comments, she looks like arthur kane in every single one of those

Looks almost like Amy Winehouse there. :)

Lady Ga Ga is one of many examples that extremely mainstream manufactured chart pop sounds better now than it has done for 25 years btw. Roughly because it sounds more or less exactly like it did 25 years ago. Only with more advanced drum programming and a lot more dynamic range compression. :)

and apparently her face

Surmounter, Friday, 6 March 2009 22:51 (eight years ago) Permalink

see the difference here is that amy winehouse looks bad when she is cracked out and wearing no makeup and hungover or whatever. that's lady gaga....at a photoshoot.

do u realize u were describing paramore's actual first album here

Hateful Guard at Maryland Training School for Boys (some dude), Friday, 6 March 2009 23:01 (eight years ago) Permalink

tbh i have no recollection of paramore existing prior to "misery business"

wow heaven is cool (J0rdan S.), Friday, 6 March 2009 23:08 (eight years ago) Permalink

yeah but i'm just saying they were writing songs at 15 that sounded just like their recent stuff they wrote at 17/18, so it struck me as a strange qualifier

Hateful Guard at Maryland Training School for Boys (some dude), Friday, 6 March 2009 23:19 (eight years ago) Permalink

essentially i think i was using paramore as a stand in for "this sounds like a song written by/for teens and fronted by a girl"

wow heaven is cool (J0rdan S.), Friday, 6 March 2009 23:25 (eight years ago) Permalink

yeah...i mean it actually does sound like Paramore (one album track in particular it reminds me of more than the singles) so if you'd just said "sounds like Paramore" i'd have no quibbles. sorry silly number of posts to spend discussing this.

Councils get banned jargon list

Winston Churchill is an example to council workers, campaigners say
Council leaders have compiled a banned list of the 200 worst uses of jargon, with "predictors of beaconicity" and "taxonomy" among the worst horrors.


Just so's you know.
