Lady Gaga

Whether you like porn or not, I'm sure you've seen it at some point in your life. In fact, if you weren't aware of it, porn is freely available on the internet. I'm not talking about the infinite number of sites that ask for your credit card for free porn, there is actually a number of sites that feature it.
Needless to say, those who want to can find it as easily as 123.
Porn movies usually turn to mainstream movies for a theme hence the endless takes on titles that with a twist of words become the title of a porn movie.
Porn is about sex and sometimes violence mixed with porn.

The interest in porn and violence must be more than I imagined because today I watched a new video by Lady Gaga. I'm not into the latest music trends but Lady Gaga is quite famous so whatever she does to promote herself is of public interest. BTW, she features with Beyoncé in this video.
Obviously Lady Gaga wants to shock the public if not her audience. How otherwise to create a media frenzy of interest, much has been learn't since Madonna played the media like a violin.

Personally it's not the porn influenced theme that I find offensive as much as the notion that a lack of talent cries out for a need for attention by whatever means is available.
Set the scene: an all female prison with lascivious prisoners and naked female figures. Add a touch of S&M images and a lesbian kiss. Just for fun add a cat-fight. So who is Lady Gaga's target audience? Horny guys who get off on lesbian porn? Maybe. As far as the music is concerned, thump thump thump sqeaul two lines of verse over and over again...sounds much like every other thump thump thump music that's ever been out there.
Sorry Lady Gaga but unlike Jimi Hendrix who's put out a new album 40 years after his death Valley of Neptune, your contribution to music will linger only as a stain on the carpet left by an incontinent bitch.

Madonna is pretty much a has-been too now.

Lady Gag(a) will last until the next sexy no-talent comes along.

Jen said...

The thing I like about Gaga is her willingness to look ugly.

It's not shocking to me, really.

SHe is bordering on Marilyn Manson type tricks, though. Played out.

Jen said...

Oh, I do LOVE her Bad Romance video...and the song.

I'm torn about Lady GaGa, I can't make up my mind if I like or dislike her music, but I will say one thing in and industry as old as dirt she has managed to garner attention.

As for porn on the inter net, I ran into it accidently searching something totally innocent. I guess porn is titillating for the young and inexperienced, but if you lived your life right, by the age of 60 all you can say about porn is: "Been there, done that."

I've been wondering about the fact of why it's so difficult for porn stars to cross over into the music industry? Many have tried but failed to achieve stardom. I just feel it's only fair since so many pop stars have been toying with porn in their videos.

I do not believe Lady Gaga actually sings this stuff. She's the new Milli Vanilli.

My girlfriend told me she actually kinda likes Lady Gaga, or at least one of her songs. I nearly had to disown her, but for years she's cranked on me for liking techno so I guess I can tolerate the attempt to meet me halfway, even it it's Lady Gaga.

For the resurgeance of basically early 1990's house techno 4/4 beats and bass, sure bring back the yummy delicious. But the whole made-for-video aspects of the "look" ... meh...

I prefer dance music to have no lyrics or video component whatsoever.

beamish said...

For the record, I thought Traci Lords was a better techno music star than porn star, Lex.

ThePaddy said...

I agree. She will be forgotten in no time. Much like I hope and pray that Pink creature is and that horrendous Morissette thing has been.

Jen said...

Creature...and thing???

Sounds like misogyny to me.

Pink won't be forgotten, as long as there are loud-mouth assholes who put women down, she'll only be more popular...and others like her.

And Alanis Morisette hasn't been forgotten, not by a long-shot.

beamish said...

I don't know much about Pink. But Alanis Morrisette is a warrior poet, yo.

ThePaddy said...

Wow, pick on a few horrible women singers and get accused of misogyny, and being a loudmouth asshole!

Pink will indeed be forgotten, as history has shown with 99% of pop tarts. If you want great women singers, there is always Nikki Lamborn, Melissa Etheridge, Pearl Aday, Suzi Quatro, Linda Perry and countless other equally wonderful women singers. However screeching about head jobs in the theater and thinking about other women during sex hardly rates her as a "warrior poet".

She has been forgotten by pretty much everyone, just like Pink and the Ga Ga monster will be.

I have always been a pretty firm believer that if a woman can actually sing, she doesn't need to remove her clothes.....witch reminds me, anyone see the Morresette creatures "thank you" video?

Pop tarts....bah hmbug.

Jen said...

Yes, your first comment did reek of misogyny, but I did not call YOU a loudmouth asshole.

I said that because Pink rose to fame by singing songs about the men who "misunderstood" her or held her down.

We may have different ideas about what makes a quality musician / artist. Alanis is one of hundreds that I appreciate.

Hey, I just watched the video for Thank You (which is one of my VERY FAVORITE songs, by the way...reminds me of one of my best friends). GREAT video!

I gotta say Alanis Morrisette is a warrior poet again. I mean it in the Zen sense. I can't explain what I mean by that, wouldn't dare try microscope the magic out of it. I can only say she gets it. She knows what it is all about.

Your mileage may vary.

beamish said...

She played God in a Kevin Smith movie. If you were going to cast a female in the role of God, who better than Alanis Morrisette?

Jen said...

Amen. ;-)

Jen said...

Pop tarts....bah hmbug.

Oh, go scrooge yourself.

Hahahaha. You made it too easy.
I'm just kidding around. ;-)

Britney Spears has a new song called "Womanizer" that if you strip her vocals out of it and just listen to the music will take you back to the underground rave scene circa 1993.

Her vocals compliment the track nicely, but old school techno was more about the track than the lyrics so there's almost a sense of intellectual irony in the juxtaposition of her new found riot grrrlness.

But you can dance to it nonetheless, so what the hey.

Just proves neither techno nor Britney Spears are necessarily disposable "commodities."

ThePaddy said...

As I recall she played God that never spoke for fear her voice would deafen....(or kill?) anyone who heard it. Quite apt I would think.

"She gets it". Thats very deep. If only one could actually say "she can sing" with a straight face, that would be far more impressive.

beamish said...

I bet she sings better than you or I, Paddy. But I listen to the lyrics, not the voice.

If Alanis Morrisette's vocal tonations match the spirit of her lyrics, she's pulled off an impressive feat of artistry in my book. In other words, she gets it. She sounds like a voice you either ignore or learn from.

If you get it you do, If you don't you don't.

Sorry dude, but thats an irrelevant argument. I don't make my living singing.

Her vocals are the musical equivalent of watching The Nanny on TV.

beamish said...

So you don't get it.

[Fran Drescher is kinda hot, though]

Jen said...

It's a pity, Paddy.

She gives a ton of insight into Female.

One of my favorite Alanis songs.

Alright then. :-)
