Lady Gaga has single handedly enslaved an entire generation and permanently handicapped their creative impulses.
But if you're a fan of hers, she has liberated you by being able to express yourself in nightmare-before-christmas fashion, as well as in many other politically incorrect ways, such as wearing meat.
Depends on your point of view. I think she's completely weird. She knows what she's doing and it's manipulation and it sells. And I like her music, as formulaic as it may be. She's smarter than the masses.
That is a really good question. I can't think of one, but if you really think about it so many things in history are buried. Anything is possible and so many things are unknown. There were very powerful women in the past, so who really knows?
Yes, at least two that I know of. Thankfully, we are no longer married. And life is better.
Dictator is quite a modern word. There have been many, many female monarchs over the centuries who had absolute power, but we don't usually use the word dictator for these historical figures as it is usually reserved for people who take power themselves rather than inherit it and have some kind of political philosophy (like communism) driving them. I can't think of a woman who fits the usual use.
An Empress is not a dictator, she is an Empress, it says so in the title.
I didn't know that "dictator" was a title.
How many call themselves president, which is also in the title, but that doesn't make them any less of a dictator, does it?
My husband would answer with a resounding YES!
Johnny, take your pills.
Johnny, you need to rest.
Johnny, eat something.
Johnny, take your vitamins.
Johnny, drink your Ensure.
Johnny, do your breathing treatments.
He's prolly ready to go back to ICU! lol
Habee, it sounds like he's doing well. Very glad to hear it.
Oh great !! you got him home where you can beat him up then ??
Habee is a loving dictator for sure...
Hmm to answer the OP, there were so called "women dictators" but then they were team tandem with their hubby who had political powers. Ferdinand Marcos and Imelda Marcos (Philippines) and Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife - Romania. But of course history will judge them they say, but whose history, we don't know.
Elena Chauchesku in Romania, had been executed I think in 1989. Dark times of a history not so ancient. Had been a Minister and ruled hand in hand with her husband - the main dictator in bloody deeds...
Well, what do you think about this specimen:
If she wasn't a dictator, she sure was twisted...

Apart from that, the Egyptian queens Hatschepsut and Cleopatra were solitary rulers. I don't know to what extent you can call them dictators though, given the nature of ruling in that age.
Oh, there is a certain Chinese woman, who became ruler when her husband, the emperor died, because she had custody over their young son and ruled in his stead, reluctant to surrender the throne to him when he came of age, but I can't remember her name. She was known for indulging in luxury. Do any of you know her name? Let me know if you do.
There will be when all you disgruntled Obama folks vote for Hillary, ha ha, gotcha all!
I thought there was one in most households. They're called "wives" as a more polite and PC title, but dictators they are!
I don't know of any female dictators but I do know there's some very serious negotiations and diplomacy taking place in every married man's home, especially during a 5 to 7 day time period each month.
Not sure how you are defining dictator, but Cleopatra comes to mind.
Cleopatra, Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, Megwati Sukarnaputri.
Monarchs are not dictators by definition. Dictators are more likely those who violate the law of their country by indulging their own political whimps. So if Catherine the Great might have been the cruelest ruler, she was not a dicator, for the law endorsed her absolutism.
Hmmm... I find it hard to find a female dictator in history, if we're not talking about wives of dictators.
there's Sükhbaataryn Yanjmaa who was President of Mongolia for a while (not elected, I don't think) and Khertek Anchimaa-Toka during the 1940s in Tuva. Tuva then became part of Russia. Her obit is here http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/commen … 269130.ece
Also Soong Ching-ling in China in the late 1960s.
While not quite a dictator, Semiramis certainly deserves mentioning as a strong female figure, for what i feel is not the best of intentions... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiramis
have to agree with the Margaret Thatcher comment, she was elected to be prime minister but the things she did!

Have you ever been so low on energy that even when you wanted to talk you couldn't? Just like your brain refused to think of thoughts and you just look at the person you are conversing with and feel like an .... well idiot!This may include low energy due to lack of motivation in office ... or...
