1Lady Gaga got something right, for once

Lady Gaga Live at Roseland - Arrival - April 7, 2014

Lady Gaga rarely says anything that a) makes sense or b) that I agree with, but she has a point here. Even though it is a bit self-congratulatory, as all things are coming from her mouth, she said in a new interview with Extra that she always sings live and hates when artists don’t:

“I don’t think it’s cool to lip sync. I’m not judging if people do because it’s everybody’s own style of what they decided to be, the type of artist they will be, but I think if you pay money for a ticket to see a show the artist should fucking have some pipes and sing their records for you.”

Yeah, that’s true, but… frankly, lots of artists have layered vocals, and lots of artists have a lot of physical stuff to do (dancing, singing, climbing, etc) in which those layers help. And also, I’d rather listen to a slightly polished, recorded version of Britney Spears than her actual voice, for example. That’s just not good for anyone.

I do get the point of what she’s saying, though – there’s no reason an artist shouldn’t be singing live at their LIVE SHOWS. It’s a bit ridiculous, but it is really difficult to kill your voice like that night after night, so I have to give her credit for that.

    Shes one to talk. She’s used layered tracks for ‘live’ performances (I’m not a fan… And the only time I saw her sing ‘live’ was a Good Morning America summer concert – along with the layered tracks that were being used, it was blatantly obvious to me she was lip syncing for part of it). Just saying.

    She needs to just shut up and go away.
