    I know, I know, she's this indifferent woman who is supossedly a gay activist BUT is she really being genuine? I mean this new song she's put out preaches to be yourself and love who you are, yet she projects this image of an exaggerated self. With prosthetic/fake/ cheek and shoulder bones she's absolutely NOT being what she was born as.....I know it's all symbolic and blah blah blah but....ugh......Can't she just look like a normal person and preach about loving yourself? Oh yeah..no one would like her.
    Oh, not to mention the song really is cliché and really isn't that catchy (to me at least). She could write a song about taking a dump and sprinkling glitter all over it and the world would love it......

    I will probably get smashed for my opinion but, I believe she is a good singer and a drag queen version of Cher and Madonna. When will there be another one of them?

    She's actually pretty talented. There are various YouTube videos of her before she adopted the Lady Gaga persona. I honestly don't know how/why the Lady Gaga thing came about. She's much better without it.

    Thank you for sharing this. Adele is amazing. I love how she doesn't even need to try, or that's how I perceive it. She just is.

    I see so much of Lady Gaga in that Stephanie Germanotta Band video clip. I believe her when she says this is who she really is. I'm glad she's finally able to express herself the way she's always wanted to and can be appreciated for it. Every interview I've ever seen her do, especially her interviews on Ellen, has made me love her more.

    I agree. In her interviews she's seems very real and unrehearsed. Well, unrehearsed to a degree. Maybe it's because she's still new to the scene and she's a bit messy. Madonna can seem too rehearsed in interviews and stiff. Like, she knows what she's gonna say for whatever question. I really believe Gaga is speaking from the heart. I do like born this way but not as much as her other jams. Telephone and Bad Romance are fighting for the top spot.

    I'll be honest I didn't like telephone at all! The video was fun, but the song was irritating - especially working in a gay bar and hearing it EVERY night...
    Bad Romance I could listen to everyday. It's art.
    lol

    WWHHHHAT?! I LOVVVE TELEPHONE! I love the video but the dancing is sooo bad! I learned each routine sitting down. Bad romance too for that matter. She needs some Tina Landon in her life.

    Dude you are so lame! I hate to say to try to bring down this woman says a lot about YOU. Supposedly a gay activist? Where the hell have you been. Have you seen her march in Washington for DADT or speak in Maine. This woman walks the talk. You are apparently another hater that doesn't know what the hell he is talking about and just wants to see thing "pretty" in a nice little package, grow up and stop being so Superficial, for real...geesh.

    Don't be a drag, just be a queen?

    Or look like a drag queen?

    And I'm livin' for those Adele vids. You have to check out the remix of Rolling In The Deep with Jay Z and Biggie. Amazing.

    Her "art form" might be original in its freakiness but her music really isn't........she just copies Madonna's old songs and revamps them and overuses voice synthesizers like so many singers do now a days because they sound like shit live...

    Yes, supposedly. I feel like she uses gay men as something to make herself seem way out there. She also supports it more as if it's a lifestyle and not an orientation. How does my opinion on a pop star shape the kind of person I am? It's a completely understandable opinion. Who are you to start slandering? You're the only one on this forum that's hating.....Why don't YOU grow up..

    Another moron that doesn't know what he is talking about. Don't post crap unless you know your shit ;-) She is amazing live and never lips syncs. Her voice live sounds very comparable to the recordings. And again, stop the hate, if you don't like her music don't jump on the bandwagon to spew your hate but rather give her kudos for her fierce advocacy. She has probably done more for your equal and civil rights than you have.

    If she didn't stick out the way she does, no one would listen to her. She LOVES getting talked about. Her whole entire first album was about getting The Fame.

    She claims to not be a manufactured pop star, and people fall for that. But really, come on...all pop stars are "manufactured" to sell to the masses.
