She overtly copies Madonna, Prince, Elton John, and yes, Marilyn Manson. I find that she has very little originality in either her music, her outfits, or her videos. However, originality is a moot point in today's music market, so I don't knock her for it. Her people seem to know how to put together a dance tune, and that's what matters. Her image is simply a way for her to get her mediocre voice and limited talent on the map. She hasn't really changed the game a whole lot more than, say, Fergie or some other space-age mildly-attractive female who can stay in tune, but that's okay because she'll make big bucks before she ends up in the loony bin.
