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.
Lady Gaga is ridiculous to the point of being a bit farcical at this point – especially since she takes herself so seriously with it all. If she at least knew she was ridiculous and was doing it purposely for fun rather than because she’s an ~artist~ who is so above the rest of the world, she’d be slightly more enjoyable. At this point, however, I just can’t with her.
That’s why it’s not at all surprising – and totally eyeroll-inducing – to know that Gaga goes for hikes with boyfriend Taylor Kinney wearing high heels. As you do.
GLAMOUR: And if Gaga comes back home with you, what do you guys do with that time? TK: We’ll hike together. I’m always giving her flak, like, “Babe, you can’t wear your heels when we’re hiking.” We’ve been painting a bunch lately too. GLAMOUR: What do you paint? TK: I can’t tell you—I’ll have to leave it up to the imagination. There’s a lot of laughing. I think that’s the basis of a healthy relationship. We laugh a lot. GLAMOUR: I love that. You guys are under such a spotlight—how do you deal with it? TK: I have no desire to talk about rumors. But I think we just complement each other. I’m proud of her, and I’d like to believe she’s proud of me. We’re kindred spirits.
It’s nice that they’re happy together and all of that – like I’ve said before, it’d be interesting to see what she’s like in an actual relationship and not with all the bullshit she puts on for the public eye. Still… high heels while hiking? Girl, no.
Katy Perry is out on the road killing it with her Prismatic World Tour at the moment, and while fans are loving it and Katy is set to rake in millions from the dates, there’s one person out there who isn’t so thrilled with her success: Lady Gaga. Poor Mother Monster has been sipping on the haterade, apparently, and tweeted out a catty remark basically implying that Katy had copied off her looks with some of her own stage props.
It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now ????
Yes, because Gaga has a copyright on green hair and anyone else who has it is copying off her. Same with horses – she’s the first and only person to ever use a horse in her act (which – oh wait, she didn’t even use it in an act, she rode it to an awards show), so how DARE you copy!
Some people are so pressed. Gaga needs to chill out and maybe reassess reality a bit. We’re sorry ARTPOP flopped, girl, but it’s not that serious.
I don’t know why I’m shocked that Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney are still going strong. I literally know nothing about their relationship (or about Taylor Kinney full stop), but for some reason it’s somewhat shocking to me that they’re not only still together but apparently pretty in love and doing really well. Huh, go figure.
“It’s someone who’s always in your corner, that believes in you and your work, and vice versa,” Kinney said of his longterm girlfriend. “You know, I love what she does and her work and music and charity. She inspires so many people including myself.”
When asked if he was ready to settle down with the NYC native, he coyly paused and smiled before saying, “Not that I’ll talk about.”
Aw, well ain’t that sweet? I honestly cannot imagine what Gaga must be like in a relationship. Like, when she’s not “on” and acting like she just escaped from an insane asylum – when she’s just Stefani Germanotta. She can’t possibly be nuts all the time.
There’s not much to say on this one besides the obvious: Lady Gaga is fucking WEIRD. There’s no point to it, there’s no art to it, she’s just run out of actual intelligent ways of expressing herself so she sticks to shock value. I’m not shocked by her choice of Yeti birthday attire so much as I am mildly annoyed and tired from how often I’ve had to roll my eyes at this woman. Like, really?
Although, let me be honest… I don’t know what’s worse, the Yeti outfit or what she wore to see Of Mice and Men on Broadway. Yes, she rolled up to a Broadway show in this:
Lady Gaga has a long delayed second music video out from her album ARTPOP. It’s called “G.U.Y.”, she directed it, and it’s over 11 freakin’ minutes. Like, are you kidding me? Why can’t you just make a normal music video like anyone else? Why does (nearly) every video have to be a thing? Just do the song and dance and end it, jeez.
ANYWAY, the video stars some Bravo celebs, like Andy Cohen and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies, including Lisa Vanderpump. No, I’m not kidding. It was also shot at Hearst Castle, which according to E!, hasn’t had a video shot there in over 50 years. But for whatever reason they made an exception for Gaga.
What do you think of the pretentious mess video?
I’ll say this: Gaga looks pretty. So that’s something.
Lady Gaga is rich as hell now, but did you know that even after her breakout hit with ‘Poker Face’, she was close to bankrupt? By choice, of course – she chose to throw millions into her Monster Ball tour in 2009, so it looks like things worked out for her.
I do think you need to invest money to earn money, and clearly it’s worked out well for her b/c Gaga has a shit ton of it these days. However, I still wouldn’t pay to see that bullshit in a million years. No thanks!
