Beyoncé Becomes First Woman To Win 6 Grammys

Though most of the world has tired of Beyoncé, the Grammys committee decided to gift her with 6 Grammys. Congratulations, however chances are all that comes to anyone’s mind is Halo, which was not written by her (but well-sung) and the annoying Single Ladies, which for some was “empowering” but annoying. Every song Lady Gaga came out with last year on her album and its re-released version were amazing or at least, they were different enough to stand on their own as individual singles. Why was she forgotten?

Artists seem to be losing themselves in each other in that no one is able to differentiate between them nowadays. One catchy poppy tune is quickly replaced by another so it makes no sense that the Grammy committee votes blindly and decides to award artists of the industry with these generic and predictable sounds in their music. They support a narrow manufactured image consulting their own ‘professional’ opinions on what they assume to be the ‘best‘ albums of the year and it’s quite sad.

The Grammys for this year were a disappointment due to the mediocre musical performances and lack of excitability factor, more emphasis on the latter.

Grammy Album Of The Year Winner Taylor Swift Performing With Stevie Nicks

Lady Gaga should have won more than 2 Grammys especially if she has set a record by gaining five number 1 singles from a single album, something unprecedented.

However, even though most people would credit Taylor Swift’s success to Kanye West’s interruption of her MTV acceptance speech (and they would be right), she sold the most albums last year out of anyone, even Gaga. Yet, this is also thanks to Kayne West. Initially not many people seemed to know who she was before the ‘incident’ but now, everyone knows who she is.

In any case, tonight she performed with Stevie Nicks. Stevie Nicks was great while Taylor has a long way to go.

Tragic Grammys, Unoriginal Fashion And Gems

Oh there was failure all around in big red, garish packages except for Katy Perry who looked elegant with her beautiful bindi and Lady Gaga with her originality and faboosh (and 5 or 6 costume changes).

Lady Gaga Performs With Elton

Not her personal best but the best performance of the evening hands-down. The Grammy people should be ashamed.

Why isn’t she being given awards?! She’s original and stands a part from so many artists of the last 10 years.

Blood, Sweat and Dirt On The Runway

DSquared2’s Fall/Winter Men’s collection debuted in Milan inspired by Lady Gaga no doubt

Which is your favourite fox? 1 or 2. hee hee!

3 is irrelevant

We pick 2. He’s wrapped like a surprise

Lady Gaga Performs On Oprah After Fainting Incident At Concert

It is so inspiring that she works so hard. Before her concert at Purdue University, Lady Gaga collapsed and was confined to the walls of her dressing room as paramedics told her she had an irregular heartbeat originating from exhaustion and dehydration.

She wrote on her Twitter, “I’ve been crying for hours, I feel like I let my fans down 2nite. An hour before the show, I was feeling dizzy and having trouble breathing. I can’t apologize enough for how sorry I am. I could hear my fans cheering from my dressing room, I begged everyone to let me go on stage.”

It makes sense since her “stage has complicated mechanical elements, everyone was concerned [she’d] be in danger during the 2hr show, since [she] had passed out earlier.” She continued, ”I am so devastated. I have performed with the flu, a cold, strep throat: I would never cancel a show just based on discomfort. I hope you can forgive me. I love my little monsters more than anything, you are everything to me. I will make-up the performance on Jan 26.”

That’s so sweet and dedicated. She even got her chance to perform on Oprah the day after.

Just Because

Ke$ha Is The New Gaga

According to Advocate editors and critics, Ke$ha is the new Gaga. Hmm! who are these “critics” we wonder? The “serious issues” staff for Fox news? or maybe the morning staff.

Let us impolitely beg to differ and give a few obvious reasons why this crack-pot crystal ball theory is ridiculous. There is only one Gaga. Ke$ha, the silly girl has a dollar sign in her name and ‘sings’ in a forgettable k-lassy style that is as ridiculous as the bi-sexual label she seems to have recently adopted.

As Marcus, an Advocate reader so eloquently put, “Nobody cares about attention-whoring faux-bisexual girls who can’t sing. When she develops Gaga’s musical ability and vocal prowess, call me back and we’ll chat. (Anyone who believes for a second that she cares about LGBT issues beyond the edginess that “coming out” got her, I have a bridge to sell you.)” And we concur.

Lala gaga has always said she puts her music first above anything whereas Ke$ha at 17 was already throwing up in Paris Hilton’s closet. Even if she has outsold Gaga’s Just Dance with Tik Tok would you really want her as your star in the making?

Experimental Audiovisual By Student Designer

Looks like fashion photography to us. Student Designer Anna Daubner came up with this for her editorial debut. Amazing! The last outfit looks kind of Gaga-esque, non?

Controversial Bad Romance Body Language

Apparently this Michael DiMartino is so popular that a deaf woman emailed Britney Spears who fell in love with it. She then subsequently posted his interpretation of Womanizer up on her website.

DiMartino is quoted as saying that his passions lie with singing and hand signing. He says that ”both languages are so expressive” and felt that they needed to be put together to make a ”kapow”.

This is his sign language tribute to Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance.

SuperGaga, A Comic Book Hero

Some might say she’s an icon and some might say she’s certifiably insane but the one thing that is certain is that Stefani Germanotta better known by her stage name Lady Gaga  is fearless and inspirational individual who overcame much to soar to where she is today.

In fact, she has made such an impact that she will be featured as a comic book hero in the first issue of the Fame series by Bluewater Publishing. We suppose naming the book Lady Gaga would have been too obvious.

You can expect to see the first issue of the ‘culturally relevant’ celebrity comics on May 5, with Lady Gaga as the first to grace its cover. In future, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Swift, David Beckham and 50 Cent will receive this honour (Quel joie! minus Fiddy) .

The appropriateness of Gaga becoming a comic hero is just as she does have the costumes for it.

On a personal level, Lady Gaga describes her performances as part of her evolution as an artist, writer and woman

“I feel I’ve evolved so much.”

We think so too.

Never Had A Barbie Like A Gaga

Old bore Barbie no more! Barbie with something of the Gaga persuasion yes! And we can all thank 29-year-old Viek who copied these Gaga looks incredibly well..not even too well…perfectly!

Barbie gone all Gaga, we love it

She’s the kind of independent woman that women and even men should be able to look at and find inspiration from. This does necessarily mean copy her in her dress but to understand that taking risks or ‘wearing kermits’ is all a part of being comfortable in one’s own skin and experimenting with your own boundaries in the search of finding out who you are and want to be.
