I posted a comment on my Facebook earlier about this being the beginning of the end of days, and cheekily asked whether or not I was the only one on earth who didn’t give a shit about the always-obnoxious Lady Gaga and her crap club music.
Apparently there’s a lot of Lady Gaga fans, ’cause I got a lot of shit for that.
So naturally, if it stinks, I bring it here – do you guys give a crap about Lady Gaga and her head-scratching interpretations of music?
Moreover, can you even tolerate listening to this song for more than thirty-five seconds?

“Speaking purely from a musical standpoint, I think I am a great performer. I am a talented entertainer. I consider myself to have one of the greatest voices in the industry. I consider myself to be one of the greatest songwriters. I wouldn’t say that I am one of the greatest dancers, but I am really quite good at what I do.”
-Lady Gaga talking herself up in her Vogue profile.
Ok, I can accept that Lady Gaga is a “great performer” and a “talented entertainer” – she drapes herself in dead cow parts for award shows and strives to smell like blood and semen, and no one else is doing that right now – and while I was dubious at first over the “greatest voices in the industry” bit, I then considered what the other voices in the industry are like, and I think I can accept that one too. But one of the greatest songwriters? I just can’t stand for that.
I think Molls described it best when she referred to Lady Gaga’s work as “broke down Soviet disco music,” but what about you guys:

OK, no, really, she’s not, but did you ever wish you could, you know, be involved even more than you are (which is to say ‘not at all’) with your favorite semen-and-blood-smelling idol, Lady Gaga? OK, well, you can. For all of those fucking pointless hours you probably spend at work avoiding ex-boyfriends and stalking their new girlfriends on Facebook, your time can be better spent, guys.
While doing exactly that last night, I came across this new app for Facebook called ‘Baby Gaga Exclusive.’ The premise of the game is to act like a tabloid journalist in shelling out bucks for and hawking photos of Lady Gaga’s baby. Here’s how the game works:
You start as a rookie paparazzi who scored the scoop of a lifetime – exclusive pictures of newborn Baby Gaga. Naturally, your favorite blogs and magazines, including US HERE AT EVIL BEET GOSSIP, ha, are making offers for the photos, and it’s up to you to decide whether to take the cash and run or wait for a better offer.
The best thing about the game (other than the fact that it’s totally addicting – no joke, I spent at least an hour last night messing with it) is that it doesn’t have the ridick Facebook interruptions that are kind of the trademark of a lot of other Facebook game apps.

Just when she couldn’t get anymore obvious, Lady Gaga has reportedly asked the perfumer creating her signature scent to recreate the smell of blood and semen. Because if anyone loves smelling like a bloody cum dumpster, it’s the 14-year old girls and gay men who worship her.
This is, of course, just the latest totally brilliant but generally off-putting move on Lady Gaga’s part. Retarded headgear, public disturbances, a possible dick, and clothing made of pricey cuts of meat… She knows how to keep us talking loud enough to drown out the sound of her shitty music, alright.

I am no fan of Lady Gaga’s broke down Soviet disco music, but I do respect the hell out of her as an entertainer and business woman. The Lady knows how to grab our attention and keep us interested just long enough to keep her name burnt into our brains, and that takes at least some level of smarts and a knack for business.
Today I saw this video (click through, please! It wouldn’t embed on our platform!) of Gaga on CNN’s Closing Bell discussing her new line of products for Polaroid and was blown away by how articulate, informed and accessible she came across. Not only do I understand exactly what’s so cool about her Grey Label cameras and printer, but I’d even buy ‘em. Homegirl made them sound high-quality, easy to use and innovative. What more could a company ask for in a celebrity spokesperson?
I’m convinced that if Gaga quit music tomorrow, she could sustain herself by getting a gig as the ultimate QVC salesperson. Actually, she may be much better at that sort of gig.

“She performed with me on stage wearing a see-through lace catsuit and people thought it was an insult because you could see her bottom. I’m the lady who did an exhibition of bottoms. How could hers offend me? She has a very lovely bottom. I think she’s wonderful. John would have loved her, because she’s an artist, she’s fearless and she pushes every limit, which we both always adored. She has played on John’s white piano and I think that’s wonderful. Life moves on and you embrace it.”
