Lady GaGa frustrates me to no end. She sings recycled pop melodies over the same rehashed Euro-dance beats people were dancing to in clubs in Austria in like 1995 but it's all new to American audiences so we're none the wiser. I also really don't buy the whole, "oh, she's a really smart person and a musical genius, she just chooses to make disposable nonsense pop with a faux-avant-garde image because she's trying to subvert the system, maaaaaan" thing that her fans tend to harp on whenever I'm critical of her. Andy Warhol was obsessed with the fake, plastic nature of pop culture too, but at least he had The Velvet Underground!

Ahem. Sorry. Rant = over. Oh, the only Justin Bieber song I've heard is the one with Ludacris...yeahhh, I'm not touching that one with a ten foot pole.

I can't really blame any of these artists. It's all publicity. I don't think they have half the say we think they have. Especially young guys like Bieber. My husband was ranking on him the other day and I had to say, hang on! It's the media that goes crazy over these kids and we all jump on the band wagon. I'm sure that kid didn't wake up and think... I want girls to lose their minds over me and I want the media to drool and fawn over me. I bet he just wants to do what he loves.

And as an aside, girl fans are NUTS. You never see boys standing in line to see Britney Spears crying, shaking, stammering and passing out. We're NUTS in a pack. :P

Well, the video's not working for me, but I'd say based on the description the poor kid's got the worst of both worlds. Lady Gaga is total trash, not going to start on about Justin...

That's a good point, but at the same time I can't help but feel bad that some kid out there with some semblance of musical talent and ambition is being herded around by the Disney machine or whoever without really being able to do what he wants. I guess we can keep our fingers crossed and hope that after the hype dies down and he's got his millions to play with, he'll be able to do what he wants artistically without feeling the need to cater to expectations or trends. While his music isn't really my thing and it does creep me out that women (older women, even!) are fawning over him like they are, I've got no hard feelings for him, really.

GaGa on the other hand...there's no puppeteer behind that curtain.

And yeah, Kym, it was painful. Kinda funny how Luda's verse is basically, "yeah, young kids being in love is silly. Lemme name drop some playgrounds. Kids are into playgrounds, right?"

I know, you're right. Disney Machine= evil!

And I have to agree that Gaga is beyond strange and frankly frightens me. :P
