Pop Star: Lady Gaga

Postby Minotaur029 on Mon Nov 30, 2009 12:24 am

Steve, kerble, mods-

Please ban me from the board. I'm asking you to kick me off the fucking board. I have been enjoying Lady Gaga songs.

I just turned on Masters of Reality. If that's reason enough to let me stay, that'd be great.

This song I'm listening to, "Paparazzi" is pretty lazily put together/intellectually bankrupt. "Poker Face" is fucking hilarious though.

Mike, of course I want a flamethrowing brassiere.

Wow. That is a revelation, PJ.

I have to say I find her awesomely retarded. I enjoy seeing someone nutty enough to dress in a kermit plush dress or razorblade sunglasses. I will say that you can do worse in the techno-pop sphere but I'd rather listen to Goldfrapp when it comes to dance-pop-techno-crazy outfits. She's also influencing a bunch of Etsy accessory tycoons.

Crap on the entertaining side.
You guys don't mind that I crash your little sausage party, right?

I like Goldfrapp. I guess you're onto something there.

Some primitive part of my brain strongly approves of:

-Madonna
-Lady Gaga
-Goldfrapp

And yet, I don't often find myself wanting to listen to Bowie.

I don't know nothing about this Lady Gaga. Is she the one someone posted an anecdote referring to her sexual proclivities a while ago?

better than Girls Aloud but that still leaves about 5000 planes of shite to ascend before we emerge into the light.

quite like her unusual head movements (bird or alien? how kooky) but otherwise how i imagine oding on aspartame to be. a load of shiny new wank.

The only pop star that I'm fascinated with and yet I've heard maybe 30 seconds of her music. She's THAT good at the pop star routine.

Go on with your crazy ass, Lady Gaga!

All Music wrote:The times were crying out for a pop star like Lady GaGa -- a self-styled, self-made shooting star, one who mocked the tabloid digital age while still wanting to wallow in it -- and one who's smart enough to pull it all off, too. That self-awareness and satire were absent in the pop of the new millennium, where even the best of the lot operated only on one level, which may be why Lady GaGa turned into such a sensation in 2009: everybody was thirsty for music like this, music for and about their lives, both real and virtual. To a certain extent, the reaction to The Fame may have been a little too enthusiastic, with GaGa turning inescapable sometime in the summer of 2009, when she appeared on countless magazine covers while both Weezer and DAUGHTRY covered “Pokerface,” the rush to attention suggesting that she was the second coming of Madonna, a comparison GaGa cheerfully courts and one that’s accurate if perhaps overextended. Like the marvelous Madge, Lady GaGa ushers the underground into the mainstream -- chiefly, a dose of diluted Peaches delivered via a burbling cauldron of electro-disco -- by taming it just enough so it’s given the form of pop yet remains titillating. Sure, GaGa sings of disco sticks, bluffin’ with her muffin, and rough sex, but her provocation doesn’t derive solely from her words: this is music that sounds thickly sexy with its stainless steel synths and dark disco rhythms. Where GaGa excels, and why she crossed over, is how she doesn’t leave all this as a collection of hooks and rhythms, she shapes them into full-blown pop songs, taking the time to let the album breathe with chillout ballads and percolating new wave, like the title track that echoes Gwen Stefani in dance diva mode. But where Gwen simply celebrates celeb consumer culture, GaGa bites, her litany of runway models, pornographic girls, and body plastic delivered with an undercurrent of disdain, even as she loves all the glitz. This dichotomy propels much of The Fame, particularly on the clever “Paparazzi,” where she casts herself as the photographic parasite chasing after her crush, but none of this meta text would work if the songs didn’t click, functioning simultaneously as glorious pop trash and a wicked parody of it.


I definitely like her record and her schtick. "Poker Face" is such a good song.

EDIT: Also, look at the cover of her new record--

That's fucking awesome.

Didn't Madonna do the dangerous pop-star for people who don't like pop, or danger thing, already?

Meh, boring.

I think that was Lady Sovereign.

I hate myself for knowing that. For a number of reasons.

Lady Gaga seems like one of those popstars from outer space or who was grown in a lab or something. Her connection to the world as I know it seems wholly synthesized.

Laughably unremarkable vocal range over vapid coked-out club music. Easy guilty pleasure. Pretentious but not shrill, exceedingly enjoyable on its own terms. Lots of really weird, surprising rewards. She's nothing like the stuff I normally listen to, but her "Bad Romance" music video makes my erogenous zones gurgle with delight.

Worst fucking name ever. I mean, seriously. Nothing screams "music for braindead teenage preps in training" like "Lady Gaga". Does her CD come with a pair of those ridiculous Lindsay Lohan/Britney Spears gigantic white sunglasses?

Fucking awful. Kill yourself.

Lady Gaga makes dull, ordinary, middle-of-the-road, flavorless pop music, with just enough of a hook to make it palatable.

The only reason anyone pays attention to her is because of her extravagant visual aesthetics and performances, which keep her in your, my, and everyone's mouths long past the sell-by date implied by her boring, boring fucking music.

The similarity between Lady Gaga and KISS is striking.

She, at least, is using imagery that isn't inherently juvenile to sell herself, but goddamn she makes boring music.

Crap. No waffles. Any waffles I'd consider are related to the sheen of unusual that is, in this case, nothing more than a marketing strategy.
Pibroch wrote:Worst fucking name ever. I mean, seriously. Nothing screams "music for braindead teenage preps in training" like "Lady Gaga".
In her defense, the name is intentionally ludicrous and vapid and, if it wasn't for the fact that her music was boring and pedestrian, would be adequately justified by the reasons she has offered.
