Madonna deserves respect. She is an iconic sex symbol. But, I enjoy listening to Lady Gaga’s songs more than the material girl’s music.
I don’t intend to diminish Madonna’s legacy. I just want to highlight Lady Gaga’s achievements. Lady Gaga is the new Madonna. But let’s not forget how Madonna blazed the trail for today's singers.
Do you think Lady Gaga cares more about the music or the sex? When you’re on her level, money is not a real concern. Lady Gaga can make a living just by licensing her name. This is a fair question.
I ask this question because I like to know what so-called sex symbols think. Take Scarlett Johansson for example. Does acting come before beauty?
Look at Lady Gaga. She is a perfect specimen created in a laboratory. Her Body Mass Index has to be lower than 15. Does she eat at all?
Can Lady Gaga dethrone Madonna? Yes. Give Gaga some time and she’ll rise to number 1. I rank Lady Gaga 2nd right behind Beyoncé.
In 5 years, Madonna must answer to Lady Gaga. The telephone will ring and Gaga is on the line. Will Madonna accept the call? If not, Beyoncé is about to bust her out of jail.
If I’m having a party Lady Gaga gets the first invitation. Then I’ll invite Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Katy Perry. It’s all a matter of preferences.
I prefer high quality entertainment. In the words of James Brown “we’re gonna have a funky good time.” I like Lady Gaga because she’s comfortable in her own skin.
She’ll wear her birthday suit anywhere. She digs deep down in her soul when she performs. Can you name a better performer?
Would you rather go to a Lady Gaga or Katy Perry concert? I am a Katy Cat but I am also a Big Little Monster. Katy stays in the safe zone.
Gaga takes you on an adventure. Now, Katy is the perfect wedding singer. I can imagine my future wife walking down the isle while Katy Perry hits a high note. But, make no mistake Lady Gaga will perform at my bachelor party.
There’s TV Politics and there’s Music Politics too. Lady Gaga appeals to an adult audience. So she makes riskier music than Perry.
If Katy Perry is rated PG 13, Lady Gaga is rated R. Okay, I’m not saying Katy gets a free pass. I just think Gaga gets sacked a lot.
I didn’t understand the Tony Bennett affair at first. Now, it makes perfect sense. Gaga is his Wonder Woman and Bennett is her Batman.
Lady Gaga Sings the Blues
Tony Bennett rescued Lady Gaga. Tony took her under his wing in the nick of time. Bennett provided Gaga with a safety net.
Nobody embodies greatness better than Lady Gaga. Gaga became famous out of the blue. She committed herself to music like a soldier.
She’s highly trained and disciplined. Who outranks her? Just think about her devotion.
She loves entertaining. What is more, Gaga engages her fan base in real life as well as on social media. She has the cutest poker face.
You never know when she’s bluffing. Lady Gaga can do what she wants with her mind. I’ve seen concerts where she dominates the stage. She’ll make the stage her boyfriend.
She doesn’t have to sing Alejandro for you to get the point. Gaga plays to your senses. She is a sex symbol. Moreover, she can deal with fame. Check out the Top 20 Celebrity Quotes.
As a celebrity, you have to face pressure. There’s no way around this. You’re expected to do your part. Many celebrities avoid the spotlight. Lady Gaga embraces the attention.
Grabbing attention is not a bad thing. Would we really care about a ‘twerkless’ Miley Cyrus? Entertainment is meant to entice us.
Who wants to see a mediocre or boring performance? We want to see the best. So, what does it take? The answer is sacrifice.
Lady Gaga is outspoken about sacrificing her love life in order to build her career. That’s how she befriended Tony Bennett. Tony saved her from being a one hit wonder. Now, Gaga soars the charts like Wonder Woman.
I just want Lady Gaga to be healthy. Check out how to be healthy like Katy Perry. You see Lady Gaga appears to live on the edge.
I hope she gets centered. She can take a page from Tony Bennett’s playbook, and sing songs until she’s 90. Learn from Madonna.
Music moves fast. So, it’s surprising when a celebrity like Lady Gaga stops to smell the roses. Why can’t the Paparazzi leave her alone? She has the right to privacy.
Lady Gaga doesn’t owe us an album every two years. She should take a break and experiment a little. She should make a new sound.
Lady Gaga has an untouchable voice. At times she sounds like a DJ scratching a record. She can do what she wants with her vocal cords.
Can you imagine a Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars duet? Let’s make it happen. I’ll write the song.
Welcome to the Texas state of music. Music is not dead. In actuality, music is better than ever. It’s not fair to compare today’s sound with the 60s and 70s.
Bob Seger has got it completely wrong. I like that old time rock and roll too. But, I also like this new time rock and roll... Lady Gaga's got the same soul!
I got three words: Beyoncé, Shakira and Rihanna. How can you throw their music under the bus? You can’t write off legendary talent.
Bruno Mars is in another world. Just the Way You Are, Grenade, and the Lazy Song combine for over 1.5 Billion YouTube views. So don’t believe the hype. The haters will hate.
Now, I’m not naive. I’m not saying every song is a hit. I understand there are misses.
All I am saying is don’t dismiss hit makers. YouTube is largely popular, in part, due to VEVO. Who listens to music on YouTube?
In this new age, Lady Gaga pushes the limits. I admire her bravery and courage.
Katy built a powerhouse because Gaga took a little break. Katy has evolved to number 1.
I previously ranked Gaga higher than Katy. However, right now Katy tops Gaga. But watch out: Lady Gaga will reclaim her position. Thank you for reading. I am Guru Jay launching off into orbit in 5-4-3-2-1!
