"All We Hear Is Radio Gaga"

I'm watching the MTV Video Music Awards.

Yes, it's one of the 7 signs, but two things...

1) Kanye West is a petty, pathetic, rude, annoying prick for interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech.

But then again, Kanye has always shown us that he is a petty, pathetic, rude, annoying prick, so I guess it's just another day in the life of this particular celebrity fuckwit.

2) My mother gave the quote of the night and perhaps of the year when she said...

"What in the Hell is a
'Lady Gaga?'"

God, I love my mother. Now, somebody - - what in the Hell IS a "Lady Gaga?" Because I just don't friiggin' get it.

Amen, brutha! There's so much out there about Lady GagMe, but it's all just a very deliberate and well-calculated freak show, designed solely to gain attention to itself in anyway it can. I don't envy her fame so much as pity her inevitable (and probably very painful) fall. You're not the targeted audience, love. That's why you don't get it. It's about making as much money as quickly as you can because the stage could fall out from under you without so much as a single warning.

Kanye might have some decent music, but he is such a waste of space otherwise. I feel so bad for Taylor.

I liked Lady G's performance... It was something new

Does your mother read your blog? If I had to guess, judging from the content, I'd say she does not.

I think a lady gaga is some sort of intersexed thing-- like that south African runner chick. Erm, dude. Well, YOU know...

Aaron said...

I actually felt bad for Beyonce, too. What a position to put her in! (But Kanye only thinks about Kanye, and what the publicity will do for Kanye. His talent is very limited, so he must supplement it with cheap stunts.)

She rose to the occasion beautifully, however.

Now Stephen, why do you defend Joe Wilson for speaking his mind publicly and not Kanye?...

Stephen Rader said...

Bea - What? You turn 30 now and all of the sudden you're gonna give me lip? Is that it? Huh?

Did you like the cd I made? Did you notice the name of it? :)

Lady Gaga is -and after much research I am convinced of this - Donatella Versace's alter ego. Look REALLY closely at that face. Donatella can't be on downers all the time. Every once in a while she switches to the pep pills.

Further proof was that she wore that Phantom of the Opera get-up last night. I always knew Donatella lived in the sewers. I just couldn't ever prove it.

Wasn't great how Madonna rolled out
in her wheelchair on stage during Lady Gaga's number as if to pass the torch?

Fabulastic said...

I also do not understand what a lady gaga is...

Maybe one has to be quite young to do it...

I am a big Lady Gaga fan, her music makes me get up and dance. Funny you should mention your Mama today. I was out earlier and heard that Billy Joel song "She's Always a Woman to Me" and for some CRAZY reason, it reminded me of YOUR mother. Maybe its when I heard you sing the song and you mentioned her before/after you sang it. Bizarre how that was cataloged in the back of my mind all these years.
