Now normally, i dont post this kinda thing. But i did for two reasons. Firstly, i kinda like Gaga, she's very very very odd, no doubt, but there aint no one else like her. Secondly, this video is fucking incredible, stylistic, funny, sexy, and probably the best music video i've seen in a long while. Gaga is either utterly utterly batshit insane, or a genius of the highest order.

Oh, and it has Beyonce with very few clothes on.

Though nostalgia has a tendency to distort things in favour of the past, it's a fact that some eras are just better than others for pop music, and I really believe we've been in a fairly poor one for some time. I genuinely can't imagine we'll look back at N-Dubz and think they're of the quality of a Pet Shop Boys, or that Mika can match the spectacle and quality of David Bowie, or that Madonna circa. 2010 has much on the 80's version. With the benefit of hindsight I reckon we'll observe pop right now and see that the only person doing anything worthwhile, or surprising, or even properly entertaining, is Lady Gaga. The girl can do no wrong.

then you're both idiots. Lady Gaga makes very mediocre pop music...
I quite liked the video, even if she did look like a man for most of it.
Song - Fail, Video - enjoyable.

Her music is as made for Radio 1 as it comes. I mean, I like 1 or 2 of her songs, but it really clashes with the whole unique and strange persona she tries to create.

I reckon she's like our Madonna.

I agree with Bob completely, she stands out so much from the rest of the shit thats being made today.

She's not a good vocalist, no, in fact the first time I saw Pokerface I thought she was Christina Aquamarina or whatever her damn surname is. Her songs are earworms once you hear it, but then it's gone tomorrow.

However, from a pop perspective she's pretty much perfect. Everything she does, no matter how cheap, tacky, over the top or plain ridiculous it may be is just one massive trolling of the music industry from the inside. There's a certain authenticity to her that says that she doesn't care about status, she's going to run it into the ground because that's what you do with pop music.

This video is yet another aspect of it, from the prison lesbians being all horribly and dykey compared to what you'd normally see in a video where girl on girl would always be attractive women, to the endless product placement and cheap, nasty acting to it all just says "this is pop music people"
So I like her for that. She's taking it and selling it with no disguise like so many pretentious artists do.

You need to listen to more music lol

She makes very commercial electro-pop music. So does Katy Perry. So does Little Boots. So do JLS. So does every other major label signed pop musician right now because it's the in thing. Theres nothing stand out about her, other than the outfits she wears.

We won't have any David Bowie/Beatles type musicians to look back on because music is so disposable these days. I can't count how many bands/artists have been hyped to be the biggest thing ever, only to be irrelevant a year later when everyone has hopped onto a new trend since the start of the 000s.

Gah, i listen to wayyy enough music, just none of this electro-pop bullshit stands out for me except for her.

And yeah, Raine is right. That what i think Madonna did in the 80's and i think thats what she's doing now.

This, is like, the only commercial artist i like, so shh Sad

Every argument I hear against Lady Gaga which doesn't centre around her mythical phallus is a criticism of commercial pop music. It's a moot point - I too hate the stuff, which is precisely why it's so remarkable that I like Gaga.

I dunno. Gaga kind of reminds me more of a modern day Marilyn Manson than anything else.

I didn't criticize commercial pop music, I like plenty of it - I even said I like some of Gaga's songs!

Im just saying if it wasn't for the fact that she wears kooky outfits, there would be nothing to differentiate her from the likes of Katy Perry or Little Boots, who also have a couple of catchy, similar sounding songs. Her albums will not be looked back on as classics 20 years from now.

To be honest, I'm not a fan of any of the above, but at least little boots / katy perry's songs have some craft to them, not I'l throw on a kooky outfit, act eccentric and people will like it to be seen as different. Same thing with Manson, some very good songs but the guy is very clever for picking out the odd ball look that everyone who believes themselves to be individual will latch onto.

But anyways, back to her music. Very repetitive synth driven pop music with absolutely nothing to offer. It's taken everything good about current pop music and tried to approach it from a different angle, which to my ear buds doesn;t work. Don't get me wrong, some of her songs have a catchy hook, but then again what doesn't when you hear it 8 million times? I could probably quote you the lyrics to poker face and I don't like the song.

I say this, and I strangely like that Kesha song haha...
