Why do gay men love Lady Gaga and claim that she's sooo original?

    Putting aside the fact than her music SUCKS, her sound/look has obviously being heavily influenced (almost to the point of plagiarism) by the likes of Madonna, David Bowie, Cher, Grace Jones, Queen, Prince, Andy Warhol, Gwen Stefani, Brigitte Bardot and many more.

    And the vast majority of her outfits have been ripped off a European pop star called Roisin Murphy.






    So why do gay men love Lady Gaga so much? I think it's because gay men secretly know they're not very original themselves (i.e. stealing black women's way of speaking, etc.) so they empathize with a rip-off artist like Gaga.

    I'm a fan, but Lady Gaga is no longer a "thing". She will be remembered as possibly the biggest pop star in the world for a short period (2009-12?) but her most recent album was a massive flop.

    She is one of the few pop stars with actual singing talent and training, so that stands for something.

    For me personally, I love her personality and her early records. Nothing to do with being gay. I could care less about her so called "appeal" to gay men.
