awesome. i'm definitely not one for putting labels on sexuality. i mean, i define myself as 90% lesbian, but only because i'm sleeping with a married man and i have a crush on another guy... does that mean i'm not attracted to women/wouldn't want to exclusively be with women? no. love makes stuff happen. maybe i'm bi, idk. labels, labels, labels. feh!
also, i don't even know who lady gaga is, nor do i care much. i hear the name a lot, though.
and i'm all for vampire and goth style, so yeah. nice.
Personally I think the problem is she's aiming to be uber-different, but has only one way to go about it. True of most in the zitpop world these days, and people rapidly grow to hate the thing that drew them in 6 months earlier.
Every act needs a hook, so when you go mainstream we can hang you from it.
She reminds me of this crazy girl who stalked me in high school. She went around telling everyone she was gay but then only slept with men. Sorry but that doesn't make you a lesbian, just someone looking for attention. Although maybe I'm being unfair. Personally I'm only physically attracted to women but in the past few years have only dated men because women are just too damn crazy to deal with.
I get that a lot with pop fashion. It tries so hard to make real things happen within the narrow range of permissible expressions that you need a looking glass and a book explaining their over-stretched terminology to tell a clown from a pimp or a black-and-white vampire from a 'I roll around in motor oil lol' car-glam chick.
She is a classically trained musician and wrote for big music labels before she got in shape and got some good clothes. I like a different body type usually but girl earned what she got and I would not kick her out if a girl I'm seeing wanted her for a third.
I saw an interview with her where she said that a lot of the music on her new album was inspired by tracks she heard at european goth/industrial clubs. Which would explain why I find some of it catchy...
