Why are people so unkind, to Lada Gaga
The SMH called her a “mediocre pop star” and a “fashion victim.” Every FM breakfast presenter worth their salt has cracked jokes about her having a penis, which is not very nice.
The Daily Telegraph today speculated she didn’t even have the stamina to make it through her Australian concerts.
And The Sunday Telegraph on the weekend wondered if the film clip for Telephone was too racy for her young fans. The video does address the penis rumours, to dramatic effect, and contain a bit of girl-kissing-girl. If you’re still shocked by that in 2010, you need to get out more.
Why is everyone giving Lady Gaga such a hard time?
The American pop star seems to have freaked a lot of people out with her tendency to forget her trousers. So she’s been lumped in with the gaggle of other “mediocre” pop stars, relying on their lack of pants to sell albums.
The penis rumours, that have become so ubiquitous journalists have been known to ask her in press conferences if she has one, are particularly nasty. It’s pretty easy to find out that Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta went to the same fancy Manhattan all girls school as Paris Hilton and there’s loads of pics and video of her hamming it up for the cameras from the time she was a little girl.
And the Telephone video, which has been an international smash hit since she launched it online last Friday, features that anything but-mediocre pop star Beyonce.
Those wondering if the out-there pop phenomenon actually can actually sing or play an instrument should watch this.
And after all, she’s not really that shocking. Remember this from 20 years ago?
