daddy, im so sorry, im so s-s-sorry, yeah, we just like to party, like to p-p-party

I'm not really into pop stars...I can enjoy a lot of pop music as evidenced by the mad love I have for Blackout, but I never really get ino modern pop stars. However, this case is a little opposite. I really like Lady Gaga and her image. Her music however, I'm not super-impressed. I can enjoy parts of "Beautiful Dirty Rich", I finally relented and started liking "Just Dance" after months of being disgusted by it because it sounds like its about date rape.

However, her music would be nothing but horribly irritating to me if it wasn't for her amazing videos. Whenever I watch one, I get a sudden, immediate urge to dress like Ziggy Stardust and go party.
"Beautiful Dirty Rich"

"Just Dance"

"Poker Face" (really am not a fan of the song, but what a fantastic video)

Probably what I would recommend most is watching the videos on mute with some really awesome music of your choice playing.

I am just so, full-on, hypnotized by her! Even that lewd little hip pump in 'Poker Face' ... mesmerizing!

i had no idea who lady ga ga was until i heard she had a beef with christina aguilera ... ahhh pop music! how silly.

I saw her do a live song on Australian TV recently and I have to give her props for her amazing outfits and showmanship. Her music is as bland as a beige paintchip so I guess she does have to amp up her style to become memorable.

The videos are really awesome. But the music doesn't fascinate me thaaat much... Noawadays pop isn't what it used to be... I know it's mostly trash but I like to listen to 80s and 90s pop ;-)

Id have to admit.. I did like Britney's blackout. I enjoy it whenever I hear the songs but its not the kind that I would "crave" hearing over and over..

As for Lady Gaga-- I do think I would've to go with your "mute" suggestion. :-)

Just Dance has played like, a zillion times on the radio here...inbetween I Kissed A Girl. But yes, the videos are quite wild. Also, Catherine James gave you a compliment? I'm usually just "so jealous", but now it's more like "infinately jealous".

Katelin said...

yeah i am definitely becoming a fan of hers lately too. it's just sort of fun and her videos are like wo.

i honestly didn't like her music until the music videos either. but i can't get it out of my head now. its evil stuff, evil catchy.

I love her look, it's different and her explanation of her sound and image is interesting... She said 'Andy Warhol "made fine art out of, I don’t know, commercial … the concept of commercial work. And that’s what I’m trying to do. It’s pop music, but it’s art. It’s pop art music"' I do have poker face on my page, it has a great beat to it!

Fantastic pics!

Her song Dance is really good, but I listened to her entire album on Rhapsody, and I was deeply upset at how bad it was.

Lady gaga has such a great image. I love women who give off the "don't mess with me..I have the look, I have the moves, I have it all" vibe like she has. And I have to admit that whenever "Just dance" comes on, I'm the first one to start dancing haha.

Isabel said...

Haha, yes! I'm not a huge fan of the music (Just Dance is played at about every single dorm party I end up at) but her image is super cool!

She is definitely a wild child! We have tickets to see her in concert on Friday, I'm super excited!

I know what you mean. I'm not always a fan of modern pop music. Her videos have really drawn me in. The music is pretty much forgettable pop music. It's definitely her videos that are what are so wonderful.

I have to look up more Lady GaGa pics, I like her style

Flat out in love with Gaga. Crazy performer, intriguing fashionista and die-hard pop. Gotta love her.
