    Granted, Fag Hag is a proper awful song, but anyway, she's my fantasy fag hag.

    another bland, uninspiring brit who needs to capitalize on the gay market share by making LITERAL songs about us.

    funny she poses the question 'why do you want to be like your father in the song,' yet her ENTIRE success was based and funded off of mommy & daddy's money, whereas lady gaga REFUSED money from her parents during her stripping days.

    she's a lady gaga light stripped of any originality (roisin murphy accounted for), introspection, or cerebral hubris/mockery.

    thanks for the attempt, but i never considered myself a victim from jump, now back to some real music.

    Er... the racist (or should I say anti-colonialist?) overtones of the 'bland, uninspiring brit' comment aside. I know that Lady Gaga has gained like a cult following from the US gays in a mere year but it doesn't make her a saint nor justifies the non sequitor comparison. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I know the US rarely, if ever, listens to artists from other countries. But wtf is up with that post? Have you really even heard of Lily Allen before this thread? icon_neutral.gif

    I'm not saying Lady Gaga is horrible compared to Lily Allen, they're both great. But when you please say 'originality' consider the fact that Lily Allen released her first album in 2006 and it already contained her distinctive dry, no-holds-barred 'british' humor in comparison to Lady Gaga's first album which was only released in 2008. icon_rolleyes.gif

    On the father comment, FYI: Lily Allen's first attempts to get into the music industry failed because of her being a single mom and her drinking problems forcing her to resort to her father's connections, which also FAILED. Y'know how she finally broke into the music industry?

    Through MySpace LOL not her parents' money.

    So who's jumping the bandwagon really?

    Anyway the point is moot. More importantly, why the fuck did you drag Lady Gaga into this?! ROFL icon_lol.gif Dude, no one's fighting ya on which of them writes the more 'cerebral' songs or anything. Lily Allen, in her own words 'does not write songs with a big picture in mind.' So quit trying to put a metaphysical meaning into it. It's catchy, it reflects a lot of people's immediate thoughts, no matter how politically incorrect, and it's fun. And that's that.

    Dude, you're wrong, she doesn't 'need' the gay market - she's massively famous without the pink pound. Her stuff is really mixed. The two songs above aren't her best, but when she is at her best, it's pretty neat social commentary. A kinda British Gainsbourg.



    Give it a listen

    I wanna be rich and I want lots of money
    I don't care about clever, I don't care about funny
    I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
    I heard people die when they're trying to find them

    uhm, sorry you're not in on the joke, ask madonn'as kids uptown.




    maybe subliminal, new york satire dressed with slapstick doesn't translate well to a tropical climate, or just the slow.

    poke her face
    my rubber man
    hair is blond but my heart's brunette (bitch is from yonkers)
    our hair is perfect, while we're all getting shitwrecked (americana mis-priority)
    dumb down for my audience, and double my profits (w/j at the annex)
    this beat is funny, we made it with their money
    perez hilton is brilliant
    i tell lies that turn true
    i look like a tranny

    pop music. this is serious business.

    YES, you've decoded the hidden message in Poker Face. Yay! You're so clever. icon_rolleyes.gif. And no I didn't attack her. I like her AS WELL. Do I really have to make a choice between the two?

    Is there some ongoing secret war between them that I have to choose sides? Or am I... erm... slow? I mean, where the heck did this suddenly become a 'my favorite singer is better than yours, your mom!' discussion?

    Lemme put it this way. Lady Gaga is over here, Lily Allen is over there. They make songs which sound superficially the same. They both make songs that the gay community can relate to. One does it in seemingly nonsense satire that only "in" New Yawkers like you get... apparently. One makes crass songs for the heck of it. Where are they contradictory? And yep it's pop music, whai so seriuzcat? Did Lady Gaga suddenly transcend her genre and become your patron saint of gay-interest music?

    Oh and one more thing, we all know homophobes are so intellectual they actually understand satire! NOT. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Sometimes picking at bigots in a sly way is nice, but sometimes saying fuck you gets your message across better to the haters.

    I'm from a tropical climate and Lily Allen's from the UK, we're both obviously inferior to New Yawkers. So I'll just drop it, hmk? Arguing about pop stars isn't exactly one of the things I'm good at.

    thank you, was that so hard? just making sure you knew your place. art is objective, after all. serious business.

    ^ We-e-ell, perhaps there's space in my heart for Lady Gaga and Lily Allen after all.

    Lily Allen is objectively far better though.

    agree, while Lily Allen is worried about being a weapon of massive consumption, Lady Gaga is pretty much taking a ride on someone's disco stick
