I'm convinced I'm in a matrix of the insane.

BBC News - Lady Gaga bans Lady Goo Goo song (http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/rss/int/news/-/news/entertainment-arts-15307052)

How dare people waste the resources of what used to be the beacon of legal standards throughout the world? The blindfold is perhaps the most important component of the British legal system now the subjects of the law are simply stream of the deranged.

News flash, Loose.

It's been mad a bit longer than you think. ;)

Lady who ?

I thought it always was mad:sad:

As a dad of teenage folk, all this modern stuff is sometimes hard to fathom. Can't help thinkng though, that there is (or was) something quite refreshing about Ga Ga, bit like when you first saw Boy George, Adam Ant,The Ramones,Stiff Little Fingers or, in my mum's case, Tommy Steele......some'at, a bit different.

PS love the term "mad" Have lot's of patients who could easilly fall into this category....after much debate, we've decided between us that actually they're not actually that mad....IT'S THE REST OF THE WORLD THAT'S SCREWED UP:}

Lady who?

Stage name "Lady Gaga" (I presume for tax purposes).

Real name Stefani Germanotta.

IMO has good potential to end up as psychotic as Jackson
(and'll probably go the same way as well).

But maan she is so fecking talented, listen up peeps...

I'll give you that Stef was pretty talented back then Ozzy, but
if she hadn't allowed the promoters to invert herself into the
convoluted teen-orientated bullshit she's become, I might've
even enjoyed her music since that particular piece above.

Even the whacko Jacko was a talented kid till he turned into a
complete psycho nutcase, and Germanotta I reckon will head
down the same road. She shows all the hallmarks to me but
then (like Jackson) I don't give a rat's arse what she does. Its
none of my business anyway.

Very well said.

From the article:-

"it's pretty obvious that kids will be able to tell the difference between the two characters"

Not so sure about that.

I wonder what she'd do if someone was enobled and took the name Lord Gaga? (Sometimes seems many of them are!) But then there would be a real Lady Gaga! That could be interesting.....

if someone was enobled and took the name Lord Gaga?

Prescott must be a contender ?

All we need is a Radio Gaga .... or has that already been done?

I think Slasher is right. Many people like her and Jackson find themselves surrounded by promoters, advisers, lawyers and 'friends'. Who only have her best interests at heart:rolleyes:, so she thinks.

I very much doubt she was too exercised about a kid's cartoon character. But no doubt she was advised by her acolytes that it was neccessary. They have to justify their existence on her payroll after all.

I often wonder what's it's like to live in that bubble where the only people around are there to fawn on you and protect your ego.

A bit like the Kings of old.

Nothing new there, the world is mad for a long time.

I saw an interview with her when she was down here in Australia, quite a surprise, she came over well, said her appearance, behaviour etc. was all part of her act and not be be taken too seriously.

Can't help thinkng though, that there is (or was) something quite refreshing about Ga Ga...Same. To me, the refreshing thing is that unlike Britney, Xtina et al, she doesn't pretend to be stoopid. Many of the previous girl idols thrived on being dumb, vapid, slutty, 'Don't Ask Me, I'm Just A Girl' stereotypes (apologies to Malibu Stacey). Pink and Gwen Stefani were notable exceptions who were lost in the wilderness of stoopid sluts. They had songs you could bop along to, but when compared to the eighties female popstars like Debbie Harry, Joan Jett and the dreaded Madonna, they were really submissive, like singing porn stars. Of course, maybe I just got old. :{

At least Lady G is a bit different with her avante garde catwalk clothes, largely uplifting messages and songs you can still bop along to. She may turn into a basket case, but she'll be a wealthy basket case so good luck to her and she'll be able to afford the therapy.Wealthy family notwithstanding, at least she's not from the bloody Hilton/Ritchie 'my Dad's a big cheese so Look At Me' school of fame! :ugh: In the meantime, despite the revealing outfits and tabloid antics she still avoids the 'I'm just a girl so like please be nice to me, handsome' message from the previous teen starlets.

Parabellum's impression is interesting (I didn't see the interview). It's quite possible that like Alice Cooper, the whole Lady Gaga thing is the stage persona and lil' Stef is really a very astute businesswoman and performer who saw a gap in the market and is riding the wave for all it's worth. I'd like to think so, anyway.

I've seen her interviewed a couple of times. She is indeed a very bright woman, well aware of what she is doing, and playing into a character she has created. Quite profitable, too. Who knows if she will turn out to be a cokehead down the line.
Agree that her biggest risk is all the hangers-on who are always attracted to popular celebrities.

Define "finally" please.

Of course it's an act! Don't people remember Madonna and her antics from the late 80s/early 90s - Like a Virgin, Erotica - with her conical bra? The similarity in their voices is also surprising, sometimes on the radio I think it's Madonna singing. She's got a very wide range in her voice, too. The dresses et al get people talking I guess.

I'm not even sure if it was Gaga herself got involved with the lawsuit; the music cartels surely employ a phalanx of lawyers to look up all possible copyright issues with their "products".

Thankfully this is covered under parody by the law:


And this is the original Gaga, minus audio frills:


Not bad, I say.
