Who IS Lady Gaga?

There have been a few odd, random thoughts that come to my mind occasionally and seem to come back. Maybe I just want to find some answers to these thoughts and so they come back to mind?   Hmmm...I guess I'll pick out two of them to share as my "Two Thoughts on Tuesday" - the BlogDumps meme this week.

First up - is Lady Gaga for real?  I mean, I really never paid much attention to her because I've been really into more rock, grunge, and alternative music lately.   But I kept hearing people talk about her and that she was going to perform in this year's Grammys (which I watched and thought she did pretty well, especially in that duet with Sir Elton John).   Anyway, I kept thinking, "who is she?!"

The reason I wonder is because after I listened to her album (which I have to admit I kind of liked because it was very danceable like the old Madonna music I loved to dance to when I was in my 20s and early 30s), I realized that there is something different (or strange?) about her voice.  It's no wonder I never knew it was "Lady Gaga" on the radio.   She sounds like she could be Christina Aguilera, Pink, or even Gwen Stefani!  She doesn't have one distinguishable voice.   So it just kind of makes me wonder if Lady Gaga is just a show and if her music is the creative collaboration of these women I mention.  Aw heck!  Who really cares?  What matters is she has sold a lot of music that people enjoy and that her extreme costume and bizarre performances give us entertainment we haven't seen since Sonny and Cher. (Wait - I'm not THAT old! I was a kid when my mom used to watch them on TV, okay?!)

Now, my second thought - I can't wait for spring!    No, I don't look forward to my annual battle with springtime sneezing and itchy eyes.   But this dry, indoor winter air is really causing me to experience static electric shocks more often than I have in all the years I've lived in the continental USA.  No kidding!  That's more than 20 years!   My gosh, I shock myself just touching the bathroom doors at work!   Ouch!!!

(Hey, remember these guys from Poison back in the hair band days?)

I agree, AngelBaby, Lady Gaga's appearance can be pretty scary-looking. I just saw one video of hers and decided I'll stick to the audio. The visuals are a bit extreme for my taste!

Aw, I like her - I think she's a freak but since she's hot right now, she makes all the freaks look good.

I also think she's a good pop song-writer - she's a great hook-writer definitely. My fave song of hers off her new EP is Teeth - the tribal beat makes my day.

True, true, RandomizeMe...

That reminds me, the song I like best is Alejandro. It kind of reminds me of ABBA...hmmm...

One generation's bizarre is commonplace to the next. Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar, the Who smashing theirs. Kiss and Elton John's costumes. Even Amadeus was known for his wild outfits. For me, the question always is: Does the music stand the test of time.

I'm giving you a click in spite of that comment about Sony and Cher ... and your Mom.

At first listen I thought Lady Gaga was ok - saw the "Paparazzi" video and was slightly intrigued.. but when my favorite radio station went down during the blizzard and I had to listen to the top 40 station I heard so much Lady Gaga that I went gaga. Totally not for me. Dance-able? Yes. But so is every other song if you know the way to dance to them (and you don't mind how you look while dancing) LOL
