Still Not Madonna

Maybe it’s the mix of religious and sexual imagery for no good reason , but not really feeling it. The thing about the Bad Romance video is that it all was in context to the song. This video has things I do like( men in heels.) That said, she needs to chill on the Madonna biting and maybe it would be more unexpected if she just did something really bare and not so over the top. When Madonna did controversy, she did it with style and purpose. This seems driven by the need to be different and not much else(maybe Lucifer?) ha.

any thoughts?

  1. can we start to file gaga under musical-appropriation artist? she referencing everything: janet, madonna, sister maria (sound of music), tootie (facts of life), madonna, dwayne wayne (a different world), tilda swinton, c.s. lewis, christina aguilera in “stronger”, madonna, rita repulsa (power rangers), madonna…

  3. i feel this song is a blatent ace of base rip off… but an interview with M.I.A. best describes gaga….

    “The pop rebel also had some choice words for Lady Gaga in the interview: “People say we’re similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same. None of her music’s reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza disco, you know? She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I fucking do!”
