    I think she is a good singer. I like her voice. I don't understand why she feels the need to jump out of eggs, wear meat dresses, and other freakish stuff. Is this what one needs to do to get noticed these days? Maybe I'm just getting old, but is it not enough just to produce good music?😕

    For the most part, good music is not enough. It's a young audience, and they apparently
    value showmanship over talent. Fortunately for her, and us, Lady Gaga has both.

    Musically, Lady Gaga is about as valuable as my left shoe, but from a marketing point of view she is a genius. I guess one could say she is the Steve Jobs of the music industry, the "outsider" who is really no outsider but who cleverly manipulates people for profit.

    Hendrix used to set fire to his guitar, the Who used to smash their instruments up, the Sex Pistols used to spit on thier audience. It's all theatre.

    And let's not forget about Samantha Fox or Sabrina. Oh, yes. The good old days were it was all about the music.

    Lady Gagagagme shortened her name for marketing purposes! Next she'll jump out of a vat of egg salad and really disgust people!

    Iggy Pop told me to F off, Johnny Thunders tried to kick me in the face. Its not theater, its rock and roll.

    Now don't be peevish. I know other preformers resort to this kind of thing as well, it just seems like a waste of energy, besides, Samantha Fox is a total hottie!!😲
