  1. Awesome then. Awesome now. Nice to know she's always been doing her thing.

  2. She is a true example of someone working their way up through the clubs and actually working for their fame.

  3. agree with both of you guys. love her or hate her, she's a true talent. will she last? i don't know...attention spans are notoriously short in this day and age. but that doesn't make her any less talented. i for one hope she's around for a long time.

  4. THIS video has rehabbed by opinion of Gaga & her talent. Love her presence and command on stage. Great song& looks like a helluva lotta fun to have seen. Sure wish she'd tone down some of the current theatrics and give more of this more direct approach a chance.

  6. I feel like I can appreciate this realness a lot more than her current fame-whoring. This is what she should have stuck with, IMO. There's just no substitute for raw, live talent. Who gives a shit about what she's wearing or how trendy her sound is? Apparently, that's about all she cares about now.

  8. Wow, I guess this was before she saw Roisin Murphy and decided to complete rip off her style. Hilarious, irrefutable proof here:

  9. Terry,

    A lot of those looks aren't even the same, and Roisin Murphy surely didn't originate any of them.

  10. She was better before.

  11. Um, just a heads up to all of you who are saying you wished she hadn't gone in her current direction.

    Don't you realize that you probably would have never heard of her if she hadn't? I mean, were you rockin' out to Stefani three years ago? I didn't think so.

    Who cares about her look? Well apparently you the audience do, since her eye catching make over and musical style switch is why she is so popular now.

    Talent alone won't get you to the top. She's smart to have changed, which is proven out by the fact that you even know who she is enough to comment on her.

    Frankly my look would be all I "cared about now", if changing it had rocketed me to the top after years of hard work, like it did for her.

  12. I've never hated anyone more. Worst lyricist ever.

  13. She's talented...

    ...but if she's 23 then I'm 14.

  14. She has a great voice, but WOW does she look like a muppet. Genetics were unkind.

  15. who cares what she looks or sounds like . who the hell told her the name Lady GaGa was a good one?

  16. jesus wept, how much coke is she on?!

  17. I like this way more than the stuff I've heard from her before. Pokerface makes me want to jump off a bridge every time I hear it. Instead, I just try not to hear it, ever. Not as easy as you think, though.

  18. drummer blows.... and she's kinda more annoying in this vid than at the VMA's lol

    this music reminds me of the jonas brothers..
    no wonder she had to resort to gimmicks like "fashion"

  19. She played Lollapalooza when she was still a nobody a couple of years ago.. i saw some pics online.. she wore something sexy.

  20. I don't get it. Very typical Jersey- or Long Island-looking girl singing cheesy pub rock. She was obviously capable at that and obviously has enough skills to have carried on with changing everything in terms of style/genre (i.e. she will carry whatever tune she thinks she can sell) but she didn't seem to have anything interesting to say then and she doesn't now either. Just because she is super-popular among kiddies and witless older people doesn't mean she is interesting. Wanting fame for its own sake without having anything to say is super-bourgeois.

  22. Ahhh, before she became druggy trash.

  23. All you bitter bitchy queens, take a look at this _recent_ live performance and eat your sour hateful words:
    no matter what you think of her then or now, you have to admit she has talent, orders of magnitude more than your plastic idols Shitney, Xtina, etc.

  24. Great talent then and now. I went to one of her shows at The Bitter End a few years ago when she was dating a friend of mine (not sure if this was the one, as she played a lot of bars and concert venues downtown). I still have one of her EPs on my laptop.

  25. are you people kidding? nobody ever heard of this loser - she was no gay underground club legend/superstar or whatever. this is horrible MOR bullshit, she did not work her way up through the clubs she got hooked up with a producer and agents and people who decided they could mold her meagre talents into what she is today. she is the biggest joke amongst people who really perform in New York on the "underground gay scene" because not one of them knew her or ever saw her. she exploited her gays and continues to do so. she looks like a scared little girl who has no personality and is just gonna keep on faking it till she makes it.
