kaccioto saidanother 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.
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?
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.
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
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.
