Well, Lady GaGa hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and while I still haven’t watched, I certainly have seen her performance of ‘Do What U Want’ with R Kelly and was, predictably, horrified. This is “art”? For real? GaGa got on her knees in front of R Kelly (can I call him just “R”?) before lying down and having him pretend to do push-ups over her and simulate kissing her neck. I just… I mean, whatever.
Look, here’s problem with Lady Gaga: She acts like this bullshit is avant garde art instead of what it actually is, and that’s weird fucking pop music. Do your thing! Duet with R Kelly, try to do a rap song even though it makes zero sense, wear a giant chicken nugget on your head! But don’t pretend there’s some deeper meaning behind it and don’t take yourself so damn seriously.
