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.

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.

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).

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.

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

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.

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?

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.

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.
