Lady Gaga = God

There has never been, nor will there ever be, a more perfect singer, songwriter, performer, and fluffer than Lady Gaga.


Surely you jest. Lady Gaga is manufactured terribleness. In fact, I consider the last 10 years with few exceptions to have been the worst decade in the history of rock and roll. Hell, you could make a record. Just use Auto-Tune and you’re all set.

Lady Gaga is no less manufactured.

Airman, I sensed some ironic intent in the OP.

She seems like a flash in the pan to me. If she’s still around in a few years she can then be at least be entered into the debate about who is the best but for now she’s just the current flavour of the month.

The OP appears to be continuing this thread. I’m not sure why he felt the need to start a new thread about it, though.

Lady GaGa doesn’t produce rock and roll. What’s your point?

Also, he randomly brought up GaGa in the “Do you eat your feelings” thread, here.

I got news for the OP…GaGa is meant to provoke and stimulate, and you are coming off as provoked and stimulated.

I remember when I used to rock n roll all night and party every day

Then it was every other day

Now I’m lucky if I can find half an hour a week in which to get funky.

I know…and I hate it!

Is this some sort of a sick joke?!

I was having a discussion with a Lady Gaga fan last night – I know she’s actually talented (YouTube is full of videos of her pre-“Gaga” performances, and one apparently more recently where some backing track malfunctioned and she a-capella’d the rest of the song). She can sing, write songs, play piano, etc. She’s doing this instead. Which is fine since it’s working for her at the moment.

What our conversation was about, was that unlike most other purveyors of mindless pop, she will likely have the talent and ability to evolve or re-invent her schtick into something completely different when this one wears out. And she’s probably smart enough to start easing into something different before people get tired of the current routine.

So, current flavor of the month - definitely.

But I would not be surprised if she is still around in 10 years. Maybe she’ll go from mindless pop to rock, like a more talented (IMO) reverse-Gwen Stefani maneuver.

I used to be with it.

Now what I’m with, isn’t it, and what’s it seems weird and scary to me.

It’ll happen to you, too.

Fluffer? I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

Or does it? :wink:

Well, there is that rumor she has a penis…

Good point. R&B hasn’t been good since the 1960s. That’s even worse.

Grandpa… is that you?

Moving thread from IMHO to Cafe Society.

No, it’s real. Lady Gaga created the heavens and the earth.

Yes, my children. That is how God really dresses. You thought that God would walk around in a plain white robe? That’s nuts. God has access to the finest clothing designers of all the 40 Billion Worlds and wears a different one each day to create the heavens, the earth, and all the things that crawl upon the ground in that image. Now you know where the Platypus came from.

I love Lady Gaga. I love that she’s continuing the outrageousness that’s a proper portion - though only portion - of rock ‘n’ roll in a world of rock groups so drab and impersonal that you can’t tell any two of them apart.

Where were you guys when Peter Gabriel and Bootsy Collins and Prince and KISS and Adam Ant and David Bowie and Hammer and Gwar and all the other guys dressing up in costumes and weird clothing were in their heyday? Or is it just, as usual, that when a female does it, she’s a no-talent slut, and when a guy does it, he’s a groundbreaking genius?

Gwar had a heyday?
