I don't know what it is but it's getting louder

So her new song, Bad Romance, is out, and I really dig it. Synth-heavy, and she does this crazy, low "la-la" thing that makes me grin. I was kind of disappointed that she was re-releasing The Fame with a few new tracks rather than gearing up for a whole new album, but honestly, I can't really blame her, and if it means a few new songs to play with, then hey, everyone wins.

Because everyone loves Lady Gaga

Well she's touring so probably hasn't had the time to do a whole album worth of new stuff yet. Oh well, more gaga is more happy for us!

I've literally listened to 'Bad Romance' about 50 times since I found a decent quality copy. It is magnificent. I've got the record pre-ordered already, I can't wait.

I've got respect for her based solely on the fact she writes everything. And she does a lot of her own synth-work. And its catchy. So gently caress the haters.

I'm aiming to get tix for the Nokia LA show in just a few minutes via the online presale... Let's see how good of seats I can get for under $100 each



e: ORCHESTRA Row W )) ORchestra Pit was sold out (( But that's ok cuz that would have been like $100 a ticket after fees. These were $75 a ticket after fees. Fuuuuck I hate ticketmaster's fees. SO MUCH.

I personally love the bit where she stands up and she's practically doing downward dog while playing the loving piano and singing. And the host guy was lke

Bad Romance is great. Being the first new song she's released since hitting it big, I think you can tell a difference, it's more, I dunno overblown than her previous singles but I definitely like it, great attitude, and the chorus is fantastic.

Who cares what they would think, though? This is something I've never seriously understood about other people. I fuckin' love Lady Gaga and I'm not afraid to announce that out loud (among other numerous "guilty" pleasures I don't even feel guilty for enjoying). I get poo poo for it but I honestly couldn't care less. You do your thing, man.

Yeah I was at work on ticketmaster and so excited and refreshing a lot, and I printed out my confirmation and told all my coworkers I was going to see Lady Gaga with my girlfriend SO EXCITED AND I DON'T CARE WHO KNOWS IT!!

The wife decided it would be OK to not wake me up at 10 AM yesterday to get tickets as planned. Of course, being the San Francisco show, it sold out in the hour she let me sleep in. We're both really bummed now. Guess we'll have to go with scalpers.

I subscribe to the Mark Twain school of criticism regarding Jane Austen, so I'm not sure it would be as funny as you'd like. Let me see if Tao Jones wants to assist, but either way keep an eye out for a thrilling comparison of stolid Victorian-era sexual liberation with respect to Lady Gaga's really good beats.

Really good beats.

I'm in favor of anything that explores the cultural impact of Lady Gaga in profound ways. I myself am more interested in the narrative of sin and redemption and the exploration of the value of hedonism, but I could certainly lend my thoughts to a draft of such a monograph as you propose.

Also I'm sad that her tour isn't coming near me. I'd definitely take a weekend off to see it if it were possible.

I like some of her songs especially the ones produced by RedOne and I don't think she gets enough credit for her singing ability. Too many people who buy into the hermaphrodite rumor don't realize that they are being trolled, possibly by Gaga herself.

So my friends don't mind Lady Gaga as much as I thought they would. Phew. Now I can get all the posters, t-shirts, and 32 soon-to-be signed albums out from under the floorboards.

Or I could just put her music on my iPod.

honestly, I think this is one girl who is painfully aware of her music. I think she's a fairly smart business woman, and she and her rear end and dick controversy will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Hell as a musician it loving ENRAGES ME on one level, but on another level I'm pretty cold to it cause it's something you have to expect because this loving industry went to hell a long time ago.

I mean, she's obviously a real musician, she can play and sing quite well. She could be quite popular without the image bullshit, but whoever is handling her PR resorts to it anyway. I admire that she's a pop star with at least some talent, but come one, the stupid image, typical pop beats and songs about poker and stuff, there's no need for it, it's like music industry trans fat. But we all know people love their fat.

I feel the same way about Katy Perry, she has a great voice especially when she did a cover of Sam Sparro's "Black and Gold" but she limits herself to as you say "typical pop". Lady Gaga has a fantastic voice but she hides it under electronic elements. I have nothing wrong with people who like Gaga but it is sad that she went the route she went in the music industry when she had such a great potential like Perry.
