Rant of the Day: Lady GaGa, you were not "Born This Way!"

Lady Gaga is so extra! I liked her better like 4 years ago when she actually made music. Pelvic thrusting in bikini bottoms "bald eagle" is a no go. She was not "born this way." No one is born skanky, and desperate for guess getting a fan base made her give up on who she really is. She was not this extra when she first came into the industry...ugh. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE individuality! I've been one to wear out of the box attire and etc. However, I just don't think she is being genuine. Her style was vastly different when she was a struggling musician. She seemed more real back in the day. Her music was better, and she looked um...normal. She now walks around with flesh toned horns sticking out of her forehead and outlandish get-ups. It's as if she took someone stoned on acid and said, "Hey...shape my image!" Her new video "Born this Way wreaks of desperation and is so weird that it is borderline creepy lol. I'm not sure what to think of her. I also think she is taking advantage of the GLBT community in order to get more publicity.

Another thing that rubs me the wrong way is her obvious rip off Madonna image. She has essentially taken Madonna's image, added a little more crazy, and then tried to use it as her own style. I'm sorry, but I know Madonna's "Express Yourself" when I hear it, and "Born This Way" is nothing more than a 2011 version of Madonna's hit song. When Gaga decides to become a real artist again, let me know. Until then, I will give this "lady", that's if she even is one...the side eye!

  1. I'm not a Lady Gaga fan, but I admired her voice and innovative style when she first came out. But, now I basically ignore her. She's just over the top and silly to me. I agree with everything you posted.
