I got a chance to watch her in concert on TV...she's fantastic! She's a talented concert pianist and is a "free spirit." ( and has a pretty good bod!) There were 24000 in the crowd! She rose from the streets of her beloved NY city to being one of the most popular females on earth. I was hesitant to watch her because I had a preconceived idea that she was just another flash-in-the-pan entertainer. I've changed my mind. You?
Totally in the same place Qwark - saw her live on Radio 1's Big Weekend a few weeks ago and was totally blown away. She seems to make a lot more sense as a live performer. The Good Morning America performance was good, but try watching the HBO special of the Monster Ball - she ROCKS!
Although I didn't like her at first, now I really like Lady Gaga - for the message she sends to the world. Very similar to the TV show "GLEE". Self-Love, Self-Acceptance. Would have appreciated that message when I was growing up.
Hey Qwark!...I'm droppin' by to say hi...i don't know very much about LG - her songs don't get any air play on the satellite stations i tend to listen to. (and my tv is in storage land for awhile) I'll google and take a peak at what you are talking about.
She's definitely different...but in a very entertaining way. Her dancers are wonderful too. She offers a message of love and hope that I really appreciate. ....and the girl is an incredible pianist! I think you'll like her. Qwark
Cool.:..I didn't get that from the "degenerated" comment. She's not pretty (beauty IS in the eye of the beholder) but she, from a mans point of view, does have a pretty hot "bod." : ...and that "Lady" can play piano! Qwark
PS...and the lady writes much of her music scores.
Yeah, big difference between "degenerated" and calling someone a "degenerate"! I agree she's very talented. I hate all the gimmicks, but realize everyone tries to have their own schtick to begin with. Maybe she'll be like Madonna and gradually start dropping them as she becomes more secure in her own success. She's most popular with the tween set here...and of course...drag queens!
I'm at the top end of "middle aged," : ...but am still mentally "kickin-it." "Real" talent is recognizable, immediately! I don't particularly like the "new age" music but the dancing, artwork and backdrops are amazing. It all adds to the talent of this wonderful entertainer: "Lady GaGa." : Qwark
every new artist needs a gimmick to get noticed.. she was interviewed on a number of talk shows in NY recently as she and Justin timberlake were in town to do a show...and i found her to be very articulate and down to earth...despite the facial stickers and large cross dangling from her fake hair...
I really, really like Lady GaGa. Her music is good and she interacts with her fans. She is also very smart! She knows how to get the media attention needed to keep her fame up. (a-la-Madonna!) I would love to see a Madonna and Lady GaGa duet or show/tour together. Now, that would be awesome.
in my opinion, gaga is one ugly chick! She could look nice though, if she wore nice clothes..I think shes mental, but i have to say that shes a bloody good singer..Love or hate her, i'm always interested to see what...
