Does it matter? Its breaking record left right and centre, its confirmed GaGa is the 'Queen of pop' and her competition has no answer. I bet in the next few years we'll see Britney, Christina, Ke$ha, Rihanna all dropped from their labels because they won't be able to recreate what GaGa has! I'm not even a fan but you can only stare in awe at what she's achieved.

'Rookie's thread about Gaga - A shameless attempt at being negative'

So what no artist can ever sing about being the person you are and embrassing that give me a break.

The Negativity on this forum is ridiculous. Its so much easier to be negative than be positive. Your message is completly opposite to what this song is trying to promote. Go and get laid then you might be a little happier.

It was going to happen regardless of what the single was. The hype was ridiculous. And no, it does matter for her future prospects.

Anyways, this is shit. A poor man's Express Yourself with bad lyrics that actually takes itself seriously without a hint of irony. RS called it "better than Express Yourself" but after how Britney's latest was received, nothing surprises me anymore.

Considering all the people Madonna has ripped off in her career, why should it be a big deal if someone rips her off?

Yes! Lady Gaga will be the only singer in the world. In fact, Our Lady of Gaga is going to take over the world. Like in "1984", we're all going to have radios that play Our Lady's songs 24/7. Those who disobey will be dealt with quickly and mercilessly. Children at schools will learn about Our Lady and literature classes will consist in analyzing her poetry. And yes, it will be mandatory. Our Lady's face will grace every wall in every house in every street.
What a brave new world!

I count 22, but I heard 30 from somewhere, so it may actually just be 22.

Might of been a typo.

The Lady in The Slaughter

With her new single, the Lady Gaga backlash finally begins. Advocate contributor Zack Rosen wants to know why did it take so long?
By Zack Rosen

If you're remotely aligned with the mainstream queer community, if you're a pop music aficionado or contrarian hipster or simply a member of the human race that has the misfortune to live anywhere beside a YouTube-less desert island, you've probably heard Lady Gaga's new single "Born This Way."
Here's what you should do next. Turn off your stereo. Open your windows. Take a deep breath and just listen. That noise you hear? It isn't nearby construction or birds cawwing. Its not the rumbling of a train or even the low roar of the ocean. It's not an American Eagle-clad youth screaming "Whoo!" in your ear at a megadisco.

That noise is one million gay men simultaneously vomiting up the kool-aid of arbitrarily prescribed cultural icons. And I don't know why it took so long.

This morning, Facebook was abuzz with disappointment about the latest lump of sequined coal to fall from Stefani Germanotta's meat diaper into our open ears. And by some blessed miracle, some divine intervention of truth and common sense, that buzz was not good.

Activist types were dismayed about Gaga's exclusive marketing deal with Target. Club fags found the song to have crossed the line between "Madonna homage" and "'Express Yourself'-related intellectual property lawsuit." And everyone else imploring the world to shut up about Lady Gaga, already, was finally in some good company.

Lady Gaga is a brilliant self-marketer who writes stellar hooks and looks good wearing items that appear to have been fished out of Karen O's dumpster. I find her songs to be as emotionally evocative as lichen but they make me dance. And that's pretty awesome. I do not, however, understand how she transitioned into the shortcut for all things gay. She doesn't represent my life, no matter how many times she might be played at a gay bar or how many men take pride in knowing the entire "Bad Romance" dance by heart. Contemporary gay culture has become so entwined with this one woman that I can barely breathe

I am forced to keep abreast of her every single move by the endless, breathless accounts of gay blogs, gay clubs, and overly enthusiastic gay friends. So I might crank "Paparazzi" when I'm at home alone, but the rest of the time I just want her to be de-canonized as a homosexual omnipresence so I can go on with my life. I do believe in culture as politics. But Lady Gaga is not culture.
