A week can’t go by without Lady GaGa finding something to come to the press about being hard done by – whether it be the press itself, the music industry, fame, life… you get the drift. This time around, the Lady is upset about the delay of her music video for ‘Do What U Want’, something that’s all her management’s fault. You see, her management is apparently shit and are always delaying her projects and interrupting her artistic vision, so what better way to solve such an issue than to take to her website and post a rant?
It is late because, just like with the Applause video unfortunately, I was given a week to plan and execute it. It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you. All my my most successful videos were planned over a period of time when I was rested and my creativity was honored. Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result. Millions of dollars are not enough for some people. They want billions. Then they need trillions. I was not enough for some people. They wanted more. I am very grateful to the photographers and designers who have always stood by me to make sure my fans are never aware of the things that happen behind the scenes, but unfortunately after my surgery I was too sick, too tired, and too sad to control the damage on my own. My label was not aware that this was going on. The next few months of ARTPOP will truly be its beginning. Because those who did not care about ARTPOP’s success are now gone, and the dreams I have been planning can now come to fruition. Please forgive me that I did not foresee this coming, I never thought after all the years of hard work that those I called friends and partners would ever care so little at a time I needed them the most. Give me a chance to show you the meaning of seeing art all around you. Open your hearts to me again that I may show you the joy of us coming together through our talents, that we are stronger as a unit than when we are alone. Let me be for you the Goddess that I know I truly am, let me show you the visions that have been in my mind for two years. I love you. Forgive me monsters. Forgive me ARTPOP. You are my whole world.
“Forgive me ARTPOP”? Is she touched in the head or something? Last time I checked, an inanimate object/artistic concept doesn’t care about your apologies. Also, I love that she talks about how she got rid of the people who didn’t care about ARTPOP’s success. Well, that’s a bit of a doozy since there wasn’t much “success” with this album to care about… In all seriousness, of course it’s important to work with people who care about what you’re doing, but with how far her head is up her own ass, I can imagine it’d get rather wearing quite quickly.
I used to really enjoy Lady GaGa at face value, though I always thought she was full of bullshit and slightly unhinged, but the music was good, at least. Now she’s so hit or miss – with most swings being serious misses – that I don’t really know what to say about her anymore. She’s just awful.
