Let's talk about Lady Gaga for a second
Why? Because it's my blog and I'll write about Lady Gaga if I want to.
Lady Gaga makes me giggle.
She's saturated with sexuality. Her wardrobes are so over the top. Her image is pure plastic.
But I can't imagine that she takes herself seriously. She's got to be in on the joke. Right?
Look at this photo of her. She's wearing some kind of cyborg spacesuit dress, she's got what appears to be a cutesy blonde wig draped over one eye, and then the kicker: She's rocking a keytar.
Unfamiliar with the keytar? Witness this.
I listened to (and enjoyed) "Just Dance" when it came out. And I liked "Poker Face" too. She's got a serious set of pipes (here's proof), which are hidden with computerized effects on her singles. Gaga's got talent.
And today, I've been listening to instrumental versions of her hits, like "Poker Face," "Just Dance" and "Love Game," among others.
I think of those three songs, the only one where Gaga slips up is "Love Game." Listen to the instrumental track. Gaga isn't lying when she says, on the version with lyrics, "This beat is sick." It's a banger.
The weakest thing about the song is her melody. She's got some outrageous lyrics ("I wanna take a ride on your disco stick"), as usual. But her melodies just aren't strong on this one. She spoiled a great track.
But overall, Gaga still makes me chuckle. Keep it
real fake, L.G.
