I don’t get it. What is all the hype about Lady Gaga? I don’t think I have ever heard a song played on the radio sung by her. If I did, I totally missed the DJ’s credit after or before the song. I bounce around the dial, and with the exception of country, I’ll listen to most music.
I do admit I miss the days of the really good bands: Chicago (the best in my book), Blood, Sweat and Tears (second best), even the Monkeys (Listen to the Band was their BEST), were on my list. Who can forget Earth, Wind and Fire? Put some Badfinger on and turn it up and you’ll find me singing along, “No matter what you are…” In fact, put Twist-n-Shout by the Beatles on at a dance, and you’ll always fill the dance floor.
So, after the big hoopla about Britney Spears dodging a kiss from this very, very strange person who calls herself Lady Gaga, I decided to go on-line to see if I could listen to some of her music. I even heard someone comparing her music to Madona’s (which she really had some great hits). It’s time I find out what she sings and why she is getting so much attention. (Oh, prior to this… okay, I admit, I read fashion magazines. Well, actually I don’t read them. I look at the pictures. I’m a photographer for Pete’s sake. I’ve got to see what the competition is producing. So, prior to this I did see a pictorial in one of the magazines featuring her. I wasn’t impressed. She’s creepy looking and has “empty” eyes.)
Here I go again. The Emperor is not wearing any clothes. Did you hear that folks? The Emperor is not wearing any cloths.
Yeah, that’s how I feel about the Lady Gaga hype after listing to that techno-hip-hop created by anyone with a beat-box synthesizer. Lady Gaga has no talent. Whoa, people actually pay to download that stuff from iTunes?
Rebecca Black’s Friday is more entertaining and better sounding.
Or, perhaps I don’t get it because I’m not strung out on booze, ecstasy or some designer drug while being surrounded by head-bobling clubbers.
Well, I guess I should look at the bright side. At least Britney Spears had enough brains to dodge that would-be kiss. Ewe… the very thought turns my stomach.
So, with all of the talented performing artists out there – singers like Jason Mraz, Adele, Train, and I could go on… (there are still people with amazing talent)… I don’t get it why people waste their time on hype like that.
