Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

I really liked Lady Gaga's performance at the VMAs... the whole bleeding and dying on the stage and such... I can't really describe it other than I visit Los Angeles regularly and understand what the Paparazzi does and has done to celebrities. They destroy people with their cameras, captions, and rumors. Unfortunately, I hope Lady Gaga is keeping her whistle clean because with this performance she has essentially thrown wood into a raging fire ... just when she made me a fan.

Re: Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

I'm not normally into divas but I love her. Some of her music is a little bland but her originality can only be a good thing.
I love Paparazzi and thought her performance was really impressive, albeit completely over the top!

Re: Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

just another version (with ketchup and different choreography) of Madonna's 1990 Vogue performance nothing else.

the biggest difference being one is an iconic classic while the other ...

Re: Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

I found it a bit weird.

But after watching the performance i understood the song a bit more. The gist that i got was it was about stalking.

I love Lady GaGa, sometimes she can be over the top though.

another critical difference being that Paparazzi is actually a good song, and Lady Gaga also has a good singing voice


must say, this performance has made me a fan of Lady Gaga...

i'm so bored with the Mandy Moore's, the Christina Aguilera's, the Christina Milian's...all goodie goodie's who suck up to the media, who are so mindnumbingly boring and conformist!

loved the performance, and love the song! lady gaga, you made a new fan

Re: Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

I didn't really like the song Paparazzi that much until after I saw this version. The instrumental with the strings sounds much nicer.

I personally loved the performance. It was just really really different. I think that's what we need for people who think pop music is dead nowadays.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

I thought her performance was great. I never heard her sing live. But it was pretty good.

Re: Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

talking about bitchy girl with powerful voice Aguilera (the true one, the old one ) was still another level

Re: Lady Gaga @ the VMAs

Well she had to do something over the top for Paparazzi to be a hit in the states.
As of now it really only has overseas potential which sucks because it is my favorite song of hers.
The fact that people are still talking about the performance is a good sign.

Although it was a bit on the creepy side, the thing that really shown for me was her vocals.
She modulated well in minors that made the song even creepier in places.
And she knows how to play a wicked piano.
