Lady Gaga’s New Music Video: Stupid Love

She’s developed backward as an artist. So embarrassing!

I don’t like old hag Madonna but at least that cunt’s music videos are Art. Gaga’s latest one is just pure trash.

Stupid Love. Stupid Video.

Gaga's earlier hits were mainly due to the work of Akon and RedOne. Since parting ways from them, it's become apparent she's not a good songwriter or an inspired creative force. She's a glorified performer.

I am a fan of the older stuff. She’s lost it. This sounds a lot like Born This Way and the song doesn’t have a good hook. It sounds like mediocre club music. Its odd that she’s run out of things to say so early on in life but maybe she shit her whole was in the first few albums or it’s as R5 said.

R5, "Marry me." You are so spot on. Akon and RedOne ,make very creative videos with inspirational, energizing lyrics. That's why I initially liked Lady Gaga. This video is as awful as Brooke Candy's.

This chick has no idea what kind of artist she wants to be. I said it when it came out but I'll say it again--A Star is Born is a fluke in the same way The Fame/Fame Monster were. She's the most diffuse MAJOR pop star in recent memory. Katy, Rihanna and Beyonce all had more consistent success than she did. It's a miracle the media still gives her any attention.

by Anonymousreply 1402/28/2020

R14, I don't disagree with you but those two men had more success in a given time frame than Lady Gaga did. Gaga had basically one huge album (Fame/Fame Monster) and 1 sort of big one and then was done until A Star is Born. Her career is incredibly diffuse, despite the fact that she was hyped more than any pop star since Britney Spears, maybe even since Madonna.

R12 is right. She's all over the place and full of affectations, which makes it hard to see a glimpse of her authentic self. I guess Madonna was also guilty of this, but her persona was more consistent and the cuntitude is not an act.

I haven't followed her career in years but I thought she was done with the crazy outfits and has become a more mature artist with more mature sound. I guess I was wrong. Of course I don't mind a catchy retro bop but this song sure isn't one. It sounds cheaply made and the video is a cringefest.

My problem with the whole shebang is, as usual with her, the choreography. It's always that same herky jerky hopping around fast-forward vogueing that she's always done.

I think she has real vocal talent, but any song of hers I've found enjoyable has been a direct rip off of another artist's work. When she came on the scene having completely stolen the style and persona of Dale Bozzio, I never thought she'd last this long. But that was before getting schooled by her Little Monsters who think she is the second coming of Christ.

I didn't find the song to be that bad, but the video was completely unnecessary. I agree with a previous poster, it doesn't feel as though her music "evolves". It jumps from one type of thing to another, which usually makes an artist versatile, but doesn't come off that way with her.

That is one of the ugliest videos I've ever seen. The choreography and set-up reminds me a lot of weird eighties videos (like Pia Zadora's and Jermaine Jackson's "When the Rain Begins to fall").

Express Yourself copied parts of Respect Yourself by The Staple Singers. Ray Of Light copied parts of Sepheryn by Curtiss Maldoon. Madonna's music video for This Used To Be My Playground ripped off Boy George's video for To Be Reborn. He was angry after seeing it and remarked: "This Used To Be My Video." Her Love Profusion video ripped off Billie Piper's video for Honey To The Bee.

She was successfully sued by the son of Guy Bourdin for copyright infringement because she duplicated many of his father's photographs for her Hollywood video.

Yes, Gaga is derivative and reductive. Madonna is, too. Madonna has been copying for far longer, doesn't get permission, and often acts like she came up with those ideas by herself. It's no longer an homage when you habitually appropriate other people's work without giving proper credit.

R55, To be fair, Madonna did credit Curtiss Maldoon on the album notes in this case. But her fans act like she regularly farts original inspiration. The list of copying is long (see link below). I don't agree with everything said on that site, but there's enough evidence of her appropriation. She even copied the lines of a poem used in a Gap commercial for her song Sky Fits Heaven.

If she had started her career during the social media age, she wouldn't have gotten away with so much. It's karma that she's getting the backlash now.

I'm not a huge Madge fan but at least she managed to stay somewhat interesting and fresh for almost three decades. She only started repeating herself in 2012, when Give Me All Your Luvin came out; that song sounded like a lame remake of Beautiful Stranger. Her career hasn't been the same since and her albums since then sucked big time.

Gagz, on the other hand, has been in the spotlight for little more than a decade and it looks like she already ran out of ideas. Her first two albums remain the only decent stuff she's ever done.

The bitch ran out of ideas around the time of Born this Way. I remember being so disappointed when I saw the album cover. It looked like something that a little kid drew with MS paint. And then there was the music. The only huge song was the title track. The Fame and The Fame Monster had at least three or four huge songs each. I remember around 2011, there was a Lady Gaga Thanksgiving Special on (I think) ABC. It bombed. The public grew sick of her antics and she still hasn't learned her lesson.

by Anonymousreply 7302/28/2020

Artpop was an amazing album. Gypsy may be the best song she ever recorded. Do you what you want was great in spite of R Kelly's involvement. It was stupid of her to disown it. Joanne was a total snoozefest though. I played this new song 10 minutes ago and already forgot it. It sounded overproduced, her vocals sounded processed, and it didn't flow. Bad Romance didn't flow either, but the chorus saved it. Same with Applause. Gaga can't write good verses and her lyrics are deliberately obtuse. Even her best songs have weird things in them that don't stand up to scrutiny.

It's weird and people probably won't agree with me, but I actually do think Lana Del Rey also took away some attention from Lady Gaga. They both have contrived, weird "personas" and both started off with weird music video imagery, but unlike Gaga, she seems to be a chill person. And unlike Gaga, Lana has progressed as a songwriter and artist. Nobody can say Fucking Norman Rockwell is a step or two down from her debut. She also deserves extra points for threatening to beat Azealia Banks up.

I really liked Artpop too. There was some dud songs on that album but overall I loved it. Can still listen to Applause, Venus and Artpop title track.

It’s almost like she deliberately tries to make bad music. You listen to this song and see the video and struggle to reconcile this crap with the Gaga of The Fame. She was so game changing she ended Xtina, gave Beyoncé a run for her money, nearly gave Madge a mental breakdown (she still hasn’t recovered from Gaga)..where did that Gaga go?????? I think working with RedOne, Rob Fusari, Martin Kierszenbaum, Akon and Laurianne Gibson on The Fame is what made her a success and then it went to her head and she thought she alone was the reason for her success. The truth is she’s a great pianist and singer and a great chameleon but she has to be directed on image and given good songs.

I was really excited about hearing new pop music from her because pop music in general has been absolutely bleak for the past five years or so. Gen Z has the worst taste in music based on the type of tuneless crap that has dominated the charts in the latter half of the 2010s (I'm late Gen-X). That being said, I was hoping Gaga would deliver, but the song is really bad and completely bland and forgettable. The music video looks like something that would have been made in the early 2000s when a lot of pop music videos had that obviously CGI'd look to them and now look dated as hell. This already looks dated and it was just released. What a disappointment!

The dawn of Lady Gaga. I did like her products earlier, but it appears that her time is simply over. Her career started by being pop singer with punk rebel soul. It was kinda great. Now it's just an ordinary pop and another 30+ singer with pink hair. I belive she knows her career is coming to an end, that's why she's actively developing her " acting skills".

R125, Applause did decently. Not nearly as good as Katy Perry's Roar which came out within a day or two of it, but it still didn't do badly at all. And Million Reasons did okay, but it did take quite a lot of pushing. She performed it literally everywhere (including the Superbowl, which was the final push needed to get it to #4 on the charts). Some of her fans actually nicknamed it "Million Performances" for that reason.

Pretty mediocre. She has never decided what or who she is. She has a good voice- not great- and has used it to be a Madonna like pop star, aping a Lena Horne chanteuse, and doing very fine Julie Andrews karaoke. She knows original talent when she copies it, but cannot find it in herself. She did a Streisand like turn into film but no follow up. What is she? With music buried in tech production and voices molded into auto tune tunnels I wonder if we’ll ever get another Joni, or Aretha, or Barbra. Talent and artistry are not that complicated- they bloom and with good management become greater. Madonna’s talent was the steady production of catchy pop and dance hooks- however she accomplished it.

R118 she’s a good actress, she’s very talented as a singer and pianist and is respected for being a hard worker. However she’s just not interesting as a person for us to care about her work. What is her personality? Celebrities need to have interesting personalities even if their personality is “crazy”. Gaga has no X factor although she pretended to have it. Female Celebrities with the Xfactor - Cher, Madonna, Janet, Kylie, Barbra, Beyoncé, Mariah, Whitney, Britney, Rihanna, Diana Ross, etc..these are people that have captured our attention. We’re interested in them outside of their music. We also love their music. Notice I didn’t mention Xtina or Jlo and Xtina has had great music and Jlo has had great relationships. And Gaga, as talented as she is, is not a good song writer. At least if she was producing Adele level music rather than 90s 00s gay derivative songs we could appreciate her music. I feel like Gaga May be an interesting person behind closed doors but it just doesn’t translate in front of people.

Yeah no one is jealous of Gaga and her success. If we had the chance to be any pop star we would pick any of the other more interesting ones regardless of Gaga’s singing and piano playing ability. She has zero Xfactor! After the fame, her success has only been the product of very strong collaborations ie. working with Ryan Murphy, working with R.Kelly, working with Tony Bennet, working with Bradley Cooper. She cannot have success on her own because in the immortal words of Kim K in reference to Kourteney, “she’s the least interesting to look at”. Yeah Gaga is not interesting at all!

Who is this troll always insisting on other artists thread that Beyonce is a big flop. Lemonade was the best selling album of 2016 and won a Peabody award. Just because you don't hear her songs on mainstream top 40 doesn't mean they are flops. The fact that you only listen to those stations make you a fkin Mary. She doesn't need pop singles to sell records, just like many huge rock bands, and hip-hop artists. Furthermore Drunk in Love was a huge hit on the charts and in the clubs. All of her albums last decade were successful, and generated multimillion $$$ tours. Her success and influence cannot be quantified, especially by something as basic as number one singles.

by Anonymousreply 14503/01/2020

R145, I agree. Any unknown singer can get a viral hit single nowadays. Hit singles don't mean that much anymore.

You judge an artist's real success by how well their albums and concert tours do. Only a handful of artists today can sell albums and gross big bucks from touring. Those artists are your true superstars.

R145 and r146 I agree Beyoncé may not be commercial anymore and doesn’t get number ones but her music is good to the point where I’ll listen to the entire album for weeks. Meanwhile, Rihanna is super commercial, getting number ones but still making good albums that I want to listen to in entirety for weeks. Why can’t Gaga work with good songwriters like Rihana does? You’re not rubbish if you make songs that you didn’t write. Madonna’s best songs particularly early in her career were written by other people. Gaga did one awesome album then thought she was more talented than she is as a songwriter. She’s not.

I have access to some ticket data and Madonna can sell higher end floor tickets at a higher price point currently than Beyonce but they're about on the same level.

R152 I continued to answer the question in r143. She’s going downhill because her success has been the product of great collaborations rather than solo efforts. I acknowledge that she’s a talented actress but for her age and given her meteoric rise, she’s simply not interesting enough to sustain a high level career. People don’t like boring singers or actors regardless of talent, you have to be commercial. Gaga is riding off the fumes of her early career success. We talk about her because we still remember the meat dress and the other weird shit she did and wore but in 5-10 years “The Fame” and “The Fame Monster” will be long forgotten albums and the little monsters will be 30 something’s who could care less about her.

That's the thing about Gaga--she was interesting in her first year or two because we didn't know anything about her. She was this enigma who dressed wacky and made catchy pop music. But when we started to know more about her and she started doing more interviews, she came off as a pretentious twat. She tries soooo hard to be loved and appreciated. That is the real Gaga, forever striving to have something stick with mixed results. That's why she can't maintain a steady career the way Rihanna has or Katy Perry did for five or six years.

I know this is a Gaga thread (I love Stupid Love), but I have to weigh in on Madonna v Janet. I was a teen in the 90s. I didn't like nor dislike either, tbh. But from an outsiders POV? Madonna was bigger. Janet released a big album in 1995 (I think) that made her bigger for a moment. But Madonna was ubiquitous. She was part of the fabric of culture in a way that, in my life, no other pop star has done. Again. I am not a big fan. But I was alive and part of mall/teen culture during that time.

Frankly, I remember Whitney being bigger than Janet.

by Anonymousreply 25403/06/2020

^LOL, nice try troll.

[quote]Janet released a big album in 1995 (I think)

Mm-hm. Yeah. Sure.

CONTROL (1986) massive, landmark #1 album that blew up on MTV due to highly played, iconic music videos and 6 super popular singles, five of which went Hot 100 top 5. Gave birth to the careers of various dance divas of color, from Jody Watley (solo career), and Pebbles to Karyn White and Paula Abdul. Still a part of pop culture today do to its innovation and the catch phrase “Janet, Miss Jackson if you’re Nasty.”

JANET JACKSON’S RHYTHM NATION 1814 (1989) even bigger than its predecessor. Janet’s second #1 album. Spawned a still- industry unmatched 7 top 5 Hot 100 hits. Won grammys and a slew of other awards. Biggest selling album of 1990 in the US. Revolutionized the pop and R&B genres due to its sonic innovation and begat the New Jack swing era in R&B music, which would go on to rule ‘90s R&B and which her brother Michael would later copy. Inspired a host of future pop artists. Wildly popular, still mimicked music videos. Set so many industry records that many of them remain u touched. Spawned a tour that not only sold out all over the world, but also set concert box office records and still makes Janet the artist with the biggest debut world tour in history. An album that made Madonna so beside herself with self-doubt that she snipped at a dancer who was wearing a Janet-esque outfit in her Truth or Dare film.

janet. (1993) an even bigger seller than RN 1814. Massive #1 debut (the first for a female in the SoundScan era). Five of its eight singles went Hot 100 top 10, with two of them going pop #1 and one earning an Academy Award nomination. Another sold out world tour and a laundry list of industry awards would follow, including more Grammys and MTV awards. Released hot on the heels of Janet’s film debut (also a box office #1), this is the era which begat Janet’s iconic Rolling Stone cover - arguably the most mimicked, most popular photo of a pop female star, ever. From the Oscars stage to the SNL stage, Janet was there. And her smooth #1 hit That’s the Way Love Goes (the longest running #1 single by a Jackson) was the song of the summer.

DESIGN OF A DECADE (1995) successful the world over, having sold 10 million copies worldwide. It’s lead single “Runaway” would debut at #6 (and peak at #3), making Janet the first female artist to debut a song in the Hot 100 top 10.

THE VELVET ROPE (1997) heralded as a masterpiece upon release, Janet’s fourth #1 album would go on to be a multi-platinum template for the musical styles of multiple future artists (Solange, FKA Twigs, HER, etc.). Darker than anything she’s previously released, and he album tackled a myriad of subjects from examining self worth, depression, homophobia, the lost of loved ones and abusive relationships. TVR would be championed by a host of LGBT fans, artists and activists, many of which credited the album with saving their lives (Pose writer Janet Mock named herself after Janet due to this album). Won a bevy of awards, #1 singles and begat yet another successful world tour.

ALL FOR YOU (2001) another multi platinum seller. Janet’s fifth #1 album, it gave her her biggest first week numbers of her career. Two of its singles made Janet the first artist with a #1 song in the 80s/90s/2000s and gave her the longest running Hot 100 #1 single of 2001. The title track made history being added to every radio format at the time, a record that would take Lady Gaga nearly a decade to match. More awards won including another Grammy, more Billboard awards and various world awards. Another successful world tour which was captured for HBO ( a second showing of a Janet tour, behind the Emmy winning, hugely rated HBO airing of her Velvet Rope tour). More iconic videos...

by Anonymousreply 25503/06/2020

All of Janet’s studio albums from 1986 to 2015 have gone #1, save Damita Jo and 20 YO, which peaked at #2 due to her blacklisting at the time. Her 2015 release UNBREAKABLE made Janet one of only three artists in history (and the only black artist) with a #1 album in each of the last four decades (Springsteen and Streisand are the other two).

R257 huh? Madonna had 15 tip 10 hits and 4 #1's on the Billboard Hot 100 in the 90s

ALL 7 of her albums released went multiplatinum in the US, her 1998 Ray of Light album had the highest first week sales EVER by a female artist in US music history but it still debuted at #2, because of the Titanic soundtrack, it had higher first week US sales than the 1993 Janet album, which debuted at #1

Madonna was the #6 top selling artist in all of music in the 90s in the US and #4 worldwide not the decade

R258 BBC1 wouldn't play her newer stuff, since it appeals to 18-34 year olds, BBC2 played and plays her old stuff constantly. She was the most played artist on BBC radio, all stations, during the 2000s, male or female. BBC1 doesn't play Janet either

In any given week in the UK, Madonna gets more radio play on ALL radio stations than any other legacy female artist combined

by Anonymousreply 25903/06/2020

Madonna also had Evita in 1996 and the Sex book earlier, no matter what your views on either. So...couldn't get arrested? Look I am not a huge Madonna fan. I have seen her live twice and I didn't love her- both I got for free so that's why I went. But her cultural impact just cannot be disputed. And to have albums hitting the heights world wide for 30 years is astounding and has never been done. It's just a fact.

by Anonymousreply 26303/06/2020

Madonna has three albums that have sold over 20 million copies--Janet has none. Madonna has around 6 songs in the 200 most popular songs of all time--Janet has one. Madonna is popular in multiple continents and regions--Janet main source of sales was/is North America. Madonna wins.

Regarding Lady Gaga, her approach is "everything but the kitchen sink". Madonna's desperation to be approved as an actress (particularly during the Evita era) is what Gaga is like 24/7. Every move she does is highlighted by "look at me--I AM talented AND quirky!".This move is no different.

I liked some of Joanne but it really needed that big song. Some of that album was just very bad. Angel Down and hey girl were not good.

Dolly Parton, Tina Turner, Cher, Aretha Franklin etc NEVER had a #1 album on the Billboard US charts, doesn't mean that at the peak of their careers they "couldn't get arrested" because of that, again, as said upthread, many of Madonna's 90s albums sold extremely well without going to #1 like The Immaculate Collection, one of the biggest selling albums of all time and biggest selling greatest hits album by a solo artist in history, the Evita soundtrack and Ray of Light, they all peaked at #2 but spent years on the albums chart

As oppossed to today when a big artist debuts at #1 on the albums chart and drops off of it in two-three months

Even without those big sellers hitting #1, Madonna STILL had 9 other US #1 albums, 3 in the 80s and 6 from 2000 onwards....

You probably grew up around a bunch of white girls. Janet had black women all over dressing like her, from the shoulder pads to the big hair (or straight Pleasure Principle hair) to the key earring and the baseball caps. But they weren’t all black. Carmen Electra once stated:

“I saw the video for 'Nasty', and was blown away. There were no other girls like her. I had my mom take me shopping to buy clothes like hers. I permed my hair and dyed it black. I wanted to dance like her. I wanted to be Janet Jackson."

If only that were true. House music has dominated pop music the last several years. I don't hate house or techno but I really miss the art of good songwriting. Pop music these days relies too much on hooks. Can you imagine anyone singing or performing karaoke along to any of the songs that are popular on the radio right now? There is no melodic progression or structure to any of these songs, especially if you remove all the production behind them.

Streisand was incredibly successful--no other solo artist has maintained that success for that long-- and she did have some global success but Madonna was truly the first global female superstar and arguably the biggest one ever (but Whitney had the largest peak of any female purely in terms of sales). The fact is global music markets were much smaller before the 80s and 90s. I'm sure Streisand had a European presence, but it was nothing compared to Madonna's. Madonna's True Blue set the record at the time of its release as the album that hit number one in the most countries ever. No female was setting those kind of records before she came along. And she did that again with COADF and the song Hung Up. True Blue is probably the first album by a western female artist to sell MORE globally than it did in the United States (15 million in the rest of the world, 7 million in the US). It was after Madonna that every record company HAD to have a top female artist. That was after Madonna, not Streisand. Streisand didn't have a really huge global album until Guilty. It sold very well but not on the level of Whitney Houston, Whitney, True Blue, Like a Virgin, The Bodyguard, Music Box, Daydream, Falling Into You or Let's Talk About Love.

And Madonna was at the top of pop culture for 20 years which will probably never be repeated. And Streisand straddled both music and film in the 1970s to a high standard which will probably never be repeated either. And then you bring it to the personal about Lady Gaga because you cannot argue with facts. You have actually embarrassed yourself. Why?

Her new album is Chromatica, April 10.

[quote]What exactly is Chromatica, aside from something that sounds like a vague reference to both the chromatic scale and color theory? Well, as Gaga told Zane Lowe in an interview, in making the album she realized that “I can view the world in whatever way I choose to see it … it doesn’t mean that I’m deleting the bad things, it just means that I can reframe my life experiences and reframe the way that the world frames life experiences to a way that I love and believe in … that is Chromatica. I live on Chromatica, that is where I live. I went into my frame — I found Earth, I deleted it. Earth is canceled. I live on Chromatica.” Also canceled?

You can't steal someone's voice. Gaga stole Madonna, Grace Jones, Bowie, Elton and most especially Xtina Aguilera's personas. Christina has a better voice, was prettier and had a more classic and reverent point of view, with just as many ideas. She played too many vocal tricks and experimental games and didn't suck up to gays. BUT her failed Bionic Album is better future pop than anything Gaga will ever do. Xtina can sing from the back of a truck and Gaga must have a truck as a backdrop to 'perform' her singing. I don't stan either of them, but Aguilera is still the better vocalist today. Her talent is sincere. Female pop stars don't need to be able to sing right now. That's why vocalists like Kelly C, Xtina, Jessie J, & P!nk all lost out to Billie, Ariana and Halsey. Not the worst three non singers...

I think Grace Jones and Gaga are completely different artists. Bizarre to compare them.

by Anonymousreply 33903/11/2020

Gaga was definitely trying to dress outrageously in the same sense like Grace Jones. Jones picked up on this and even said she wished Gaga would stop copying her. I don't think she ever thought they were musically similar.

Gaga is one of the all-time great singers, I'd say. Definitely better than over-singing, ultra nasal Christina. Gaga's voice is very versatile - she can sing pretty much any genre and nail it. It has a deep, raspy, throaty tone that Gaga uses to great effect, and she's a very earnest and emotional singer. There's depth there.

Her ad-libs are also heavenly. Again a great singer, and a strong songwriter too.

Bowie and Grace Jones seemed like very intriguing people even when they removed the crazy outfits. But when Gaga takes her costumes off and stops acting crazy she turns into something resembling a spoiled guidette princess - totally uninteresting and sans any mystique whatsoever.

by Anonymousreply 34203/11/2020

R342, that's probably why her handlers insisted she wear all those crazy costumes. If you can never tell what this chick looks like, speaks like, etc. she comes off as an enigma. But the more she choose to "endear" herself to the public, the more boring and desperate she comes off.

I see that Stefanie herself is chiming in at 341. Guess your fibromyalgia is in remission. Now begone. No one on the planet thinks you are one of the all-time greats, much less earnest. You aren't that good of an actress.

Gaga has a great voice and strong sense of melody but her lyrics are garbage.

by Anonymousreply 35003/12/2020

Gaga has a broadway style voice, very nice and big, with a lot resonance and too much vibrato. The bragging about her being classically trained is a bit much though. Her voice was noticeably damaged long before she reached 30 years old. Her singing style is much closer to Liza Minnelli and Bette Midler than she is to Whitney, Barbra, Kelly Clarkson or Donna Summer. She's not a great singer, but she could have been quite good in a piano bar kind of way. Gaga sounds great, on a few notes and she can hit a long sustained note, but not without noticeable rasp and strain anymore. There's a lot of weakness in between. She should have kept up her "classical" voice training, because at least 10 female pop singers can sing "The Shallow" better than Gags.

She isn't as good a singer as Pink, Sara Bareilles, Kelly Clarkson, Jessie J, Beyonce, JHud or Aguilera anymore. She can't touch Celine. And she's not as interesting or fun as Lizzo, Ariana, Lana, Halsey or Billie.

She's more like Liza in a leotard.

Ryan Tedder talks working with Lady Gaga on Chromatica: “I’ve heard a few tunes and I was floored. It's the coolest sh*t that's going to drop in 2020. [...] I was lucky enough to be apart of a true unicorn song. [...] I think she's going to give a lot of people what they want."

by Anonymousreply 35403/12/2020

R351 you lost me at Beyonce. Gaga sings circles around Bey. But I agree with the others. Though I think she's on par with Pink, Jessie J, and and Christina (Christina has a better voice, but no restraint).

Yeah R355, Gaga is a much better singer than Beyonce, IMO. As well as oversinging messes JHud and Aguilera. Lmao.

& Lizzo, Ariana, Lana, Halsey or Billie - those girls are neither interesting or fun. Lizzo is just fat and an attention whore, and randomly adding a flute (badly played) to basic R&B songs doesn't not equal interesting or fun. Ariana is literally the definition of basic Instagram thot, Lana's is flat out dull and a Fiona Apple wannabe without the talent. Halsey & Billie? You've gotta be kidding me.

Gaga remains the most versatile and exciting talent in pop music.

[quote] Gaga remains the most versatile and exciting talent in pop music.

She was--for two years (2009-2011). That ship has sailed. Lana makes far more interesting than Gaga and she started off with a similarly weird image. But unlike Gaga, she doesn't need to constantly "reinvent" herself or act desperate. Nothing Gaga has done is as good as Norman Fucking Rockwell.

Gaga has been doubted ever since ARTPOP and she consistently proves everyone wrong. She'll be fine.

by Anonymousreply 36403/13/2020

^100% agree. After Artpop, people (here in particular) said she was over, but she went on to put out more #1 albums, garner more hit singles, win more Grammys, two Golden Globes and an Oscar, successfully headline a Super Bowl halftime show, put on more hit global world tours including a highly successful double Vegas residency and star in her first leading role in film - a critical and commercial smash hit.

R361 Lana is a pretentious untalented racist Republican cunt with boring dreary unlistenable songs. Gaga is an ubertalented inclusive pop megastar with a heart of gold who has literally changed the game, and actually, really, cares about people and her fans.

I bet Chromatica absolutely slays anything Lana has done. Let's wait and see on April 10. You mad?

R365, I really don't even care about all that, I just love the musiccc, even the spotty records like ARTPOP and the boring records like JOANNE. But isn't she so fucking successful. She's such a powerful global force, and thats what makes the haters so rabid.

Lady Gaga is a better vocalist And less dumb than Beyoncé.

Now back to the Lady. Can she be any more pretentious? 🤢🤢🤢🤢

“ Lady Gaga is publishing an anthology of inspirational stories by youth”

“ Lady Gaga is publishing an anthology of personal stories by young people called Channel Kindness, which is scheduled for release on Sept. 2, 2020.

The collection, which also features messages of empowerment from the pop star, is all about sharing the power of kindness.

"Channel Kindness is an embodiment of the everyday acts of kindness that uplift communities and instill a sense of hope in each of us. If it inspires one act of kindness, then we've accomplished our mission," said Lady Gaga in a press release.”

She's not had a genuine man or relationship or vocal inflection in her life. Bitch fakes everything. Her singing was only superficially good. The rest of her can't even manage that. Hard as she tries. So she hires good looking men to portray her boyfriend. Not a single moment with Gaga is anything more than illusion. Name one friend she has? Other than coke and heroin - none.

When Chromatica flops, it will be because of the Coronavirus. What had happened to Gaga's romance and best friendship with Bradley Cooper btw? If you're going to be that gross you better deliver some good music bitch. Germanotta is a fake fuck hyped up drag queen with bad plastic surgery. She can sing. Lots of nobodies can sing better.

On an unrelated note : Carly Rae Jepsen has released Dedicated Side B. I know you all know and make fun of her as the "Call me maybe girl" but she has amazing music outside of that song. Check it out (especially if you are interested in either disco or pop)
