Lady Gaga: The Perfect Pop Creation

I found this article about Lady Gaga and I found it to be pretty interesting drawing comparisons to David Bowie, Queen, and every other glam rock star of the 70s and 80s, so I thought I would post it here for you guys. Enjoy!

See, GaGa came along with Iggy Pop’s sluttishness, Bowie’s pretention and Lou’s Warhol wet-dream and decided to make music that was equally pompous and knowingly dumb as the aforementioned canonised rock stars. However, GaGa suffers from being too brash and too brazen in her quest for fame. She’s hungry for it to the point where it’s borderline perverted. Continue reading

2009: a Pop Culture Year in Review

Note: Watch this video for a mixtape mash-up of pure pop bliss from 2009.

When I think back on 2009, the first thing I will think of is that it was the most creatively inspiring year of my life.  It’s been a long time since artists seemed to be so excited about their craft and dedicated into putting out work that is interesting, thought-provoking, and daring.  We got Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video, Beyonce evolving into Sasha Fierce, a new slew of young Hollywood actors rebelling against the formula Lindsay Lohan had strewn along, and a surplus of young indie bands releasing some of their most original work yet.

So, come inside for a look back with me and be sure to leave your comments for some of your favorite parts of 2009. Continue reading

Lady Gaga Gets Hit In the Head With a Bouquet of Flowers

Last night a monster in Atlanta got a little too carried away and threw a bouquet of flowers onto the stage during Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” performance.  Sadly, the bouquet didn’t land on the stage but on Gaga’s head instead.  She recovered quickly though and the only thing that was damaged was the fan’s self-esteem as he/she is probably sitting at home mortified because they hit Lady Gaga in the head.

Also, WERK IT GURL!  I dance like that when I’m up in the club too!

Lady Gaga Would Like You To Know That She’s Not Poisonous

Ahh, Lady Gaga, I can always count on you to deliver some crazy quote or do some insane photo shoot to make my job easier.  And I love you for that.

Case in point, a recent interview with MTV News (seriously, why do they even bother interviewing artists now?) where she says this gem:

“When I say things like, ‘Do you love me? Do you want to f—me? Come on, Hollywood, take my picture,’ it’s the ultimate epitome of what that fame monster is. And somehow, if you make fun of it or you make it a bit more tangible, fame is something that my fans can have for themselves. It’s not quite so poisonous.  Continue reading

Lady Gaga Would Like To Wish You a Merry Christmas with Reindeer Antlers and I-D Mag

Lady Gaga waltzed into the Jingle Bell Ball Saturday night looking like this.  A reindeer!

It must take so much work to wake up every morning and think to yourself, “Okay how am I going to out-weird myself today?” because she somehow manages to do it every. single. time.  I like the whole ensamble though. 

Anyway, for those of you needing more Gaga in your magazines, be sure to check her out in I-D magazine.  She shot the feature for it yesterday, and the pictures are pretty stunning.  

Pictures from that shoot, and one more from the Jingle Bell Ball after the cut! Continue reading

Grammy Nominations Are In!!!

The Grammy nominations were announced last night during a Grammy nomination ceremony (gettin’ all classy this year, I see) and to the surprise of no one, the queen, HBIC, fierce independent woman etc Beyonce SASHA FIERCE Knowles took the lead with ten noms.

Overall, I was pretty pleased with the list.  I was a little shocked by the amount of Black Eyed Peas love, but they put out some great party jams so I have no issues.  And apparently, since Gaga couldn’t be nominated for Best New Artist the Grammys compensated and put her in EVERY CATEGORY IMAGINABLE.  Which she deserves.  But what do you guys think?  Was anyone left off?  Anyone you think absolutely has no place on this list?

Either way a big congrats to all the nominees!!

Complete list after the jump!
