lady gaga bad romances the indoob


So I wasn’t going to post anything today, but I checked some stats and hits and thanks to the lovely Lady Gaga, the Indoob shot up over 100% of hits since yesterday’s friPod post.

I’ve admitted to many before that I’m not really a fan of Gaga, but she definitely impresses me in just about everything she does. Music, wardrobe, videos. Live performances especially. I’ll be honest and say that I really had no idea what to think of her when I first saw her in “Just Dance” but knew I didn’t care much for her or her music. But I did some homework, and she’s technically been around for a while mostly playing in the background, writing songs for many other popular acts. Now she has her time to shine, and I think “shine” may be a bit of an understatement at this point.

Not only is she illuminating, but she’s proving that she will be a force to be reckoned with. Love her or hate her, you will know her name. And if you don’t know… well… you kinda just read it… but if you run into someone who doesn’t know, they will before 2010 ends. Not that there’s anything big going on that I’m aware of next year, but that’s just how these things work out.

So am I a fan? I’ll say that the Indoob is. I’ll also put it this way: if I’m handed tickets to her show for free, I’d probably go. Depending how many tickets I’m given would make it a difficult choice who I take with me. But that’s a pretty big hypothetical on it’s own right.

So on behalf of the Indoob, thanks and kudos to Lady Gaga for being a great source of intriguing, creative, provocative and original entertainment. You’re definitely a star to be watched.

  1. I love, love, LOVE her! She’s an incredible, talented artist with so much to offer. She writes, plays music, sings, designs fashion, and develops the concepts for her videos and other artwork as well as her live performances. She’s so dedicated to her work, and I find that inspiring. Plus, (I mean come on) she makes DANCE music and you know I’m all about that! I spent some time watching her interviews on YouTube and found her completely fascinating, funny, and pretty classy too. I can’t remember the last time an artist shook up the music industry and pop culture the way I think she’s doing. It was probably Madonna, and that was about 25 years ago.

    As a writer, I enjoy looking over her lyrics. She’s still pretty young, but I think she demonstrates a definite talent for wordplay.

    You are becoming a best friend because I absolutely agree with everything you said. And how can I not know you are dancing machine queen? But I saw a few interviews and I think in one she even had a little tea cup and saucer? Classy indeed. Now it might be a stretch, but I would liken her to Kanye West to a degree when it comes to creativity and all. And I could so understand why they would go on tour together. But there really isn’t much comparison other than what you made about Madonna, which I also agree. Perhaps she’s the next generation. Madonna is like 51 now, so… new blood is needed.

  3. I have to confess that when I was about eleven and Madonna first came on the scene, I totally idolized her. I’ve always been drawn to the rebels in art and music, and Madonna embodied rebellion and especially female independence. But Madonna was more of a performer than an artist. She was all about image, shock, pushing the envelope. Her voice and music were almost secondary.

    GaGa also focuses heavily on performance but she is a true artist in the sense that she is the driving force behind all the creativity that goes into her work. For this reason, I think she has the potential to eclipse Madonna in terms of success. Lady GaGa is not only enjoying great commercial success; she’s also receiving much critical acclaim in all aspects of her work from her voice and music to her fashion. She’s quite incredible, and I love her bit with the teacup. I think that was the week before she performed the Queen of England (she was INVITED by the royals!).
