When Lady Gaga appeared on the scene, listeners loved her music. The upbeat melodies were perfect for a night out. Her lyrics were enticing and relatable. She was quirky and interesting. Unfortunately on her journey of fame, she has become quite extreme and has gained and lost fans because of her antics like her recent meat dress worn to the 2010 MTV Music Awards. Is she still a fashion and entertainment icon? Or has she become a target of comedy and mockery?
Lady Gaga is a great singer and a great performer. However, her fashion leaves a little to be desired. Although, I love a good shock effect for event award ceremonies, but the line can easily be crossed and considered tacky. I now refer to the star as “over the top.” Her yellow wigs, extreme platform shoes, and meat outfits are too much.
Her videos are so suggestive that television must edit the majority of the videos to be able to air them. Not to mention that her recent songs are confusing and make no sense to the listeners. If I met the celebrity, I would tell Lady that she should shape up or ship out. I would beg her to go back to her beginning days of Lady Gaga where she was still interesting and had hits that made me want to dance instead of having to dissect her choice of lyrics and video ideas. I am still a fan of Lady Gaga in general, but it is mostly because she still has potential to be the entertainer she once was before fame got to her.
Lady Gaga is all over the news of entertainment. Good or bad press, she will not be forgotten for quite some time, mostly because of her fashions. It’s sad that some parents are not letting their children listen to her music because of her stunts on red carpets and her bogus appearance. I applaud her for being successful with her music, but I mock her for her lame sense in fashion. If she were to tone it down a bit, she would regain me as a fan, and plenty of other individuals. I would also appreciate songs with lyrics that make a bit more sense. I personally think that Lady Gaga was trying to create a persona for herself and make a point that it is ok to be an individual, but I also think she has taken it too far. Bring it back home and gain more fans, if its not already too late.
