Ok ok so most of my posts happen to about lesser known hip hop acts (at least until they become famous and sell out TINIE TEMPAH WIZ KHALIFA WHAT HAPPENED) my Korean pop addictions and of course indie rock, but I do post the occasional "mainstream American" pop post. This is that post of the month. I kinda sorta respect Lady Gaga even though I really don't ever listen to her music. I hear it wherever I go, and I really do think she is very talented, she can sing, she can write and produce music and she can dance, awesome. That being said I really don't know how I'm supposed to feel about this homage to her hair? With lines like "I am my hair" "This is my hair" and "I'm as free as my hair" it sorta gives me a weird sensation in my stomach....and I don't like it.
So is this supposed to be another anthem or something? Because her last several songs have sounded like stuff you hear at my local drag club, and believe me I love the drag queens it's fun, they are usually prettier than me and they put on a good show...but to tell you the truth I am getting really sick of this "I MUST MAKE SONGS ABOUT INDIVIDUAL EMPOWERMENT" thing she has going on...Its a great message, but when all your songs end up sounding the same in that cheesy inspirational way, with dumb lyrics and riffs that sound like they have been pulled from a Rocky/1980s motivational film about an athlete...it's time to give it a rest. We get it we really do, you support gay rights (totally admirable by the way...not saying it isn't), you call out certain politicians at concerts and tell people how they don't have the same view points as you...you have a "god like" following, you don't wear pants.
To be honest I really think her ego has become ginormous from her debut album and now she thinks that any song she creates is golden...well let me just tell you Lady Gaga that one man's gold is another man's version of crap. And this is crap. I know you can make better songs than this...because I've heard them.
