  1. If Lady Gaga is so gay-friendly, why doesn't she collaborate with openly gay male singers? What's she afraid of?

    Almost all female singers since Madonna have exploited gay men for their money. We've been used.

  2. @Jason

    I don't understand the point of using all these different identities if you're just going to recycle the same tired points you've made hundreds of times before under your own name. At least change some of the words if you want to make believe that these are really different people.

  4. Here's an idea! How about we just don't respond to Adam/Jason?

    Looking forward to the new album.

  6. Whaaaaaat? I love me some Gaga but that read like word soup.

  7. as long as she's done with RedOne, I'll give this album a listen. the previous production was totally lacking innovation.

    oh, and Adam/Jason, when an 'artist' uses their sexuality to gain traction, they're usually not all that great/worth collaborating with. (I know that sounds kinda dark, but its true)

  8. What a complete mess. I read that wordy nonsense three times, and I still can't tell what the name of the single is.

    I love that her record label hires an outsource marketing firm to build an app, and she calls them TechHAUS. Sure, Gaga, you have developers on your staff full-time. Are they also the backup dancers?

    It's also fairly amusing to think that all her batshit crazy insane little monsters are going to join the community on this app, and she thinks they're going to bring "art culture." High-larious.

    PS: Pet Shop Boys already titled an album PopArt.

  9. "Wrote Gaga: "Altering the human experience with social media, we bring ARTculture into POP in a reveres Warholian expedition..."

    Well it was her god awful fans on social media that altered my view of her. She used to be enjoyable to me, now she is just a try-hard who condones her fans terrible behavior.

  10. she sounds like a very immature art student. Tiresome.

  11. Finally! Can't wait!

  12. she don't look so good.

  13. Ripper, gaga and her manager have their own tech startup that has investors like google. They've built a social network backend on which her littlemonsters(dot)com site is built on (search for Backplane)

    Also anyone that collaborates with her closely is part of the haus. Terry Richardson who's been photographing her on tours for a while is also considered part of the haus.

    Lastly, Popart existed before the pet shop boys album, and Gaga's concept is to bring art into popular culture, not the opposite (like turning soup cans into art)

  14. Cannot wait. I need some new booty shaking music.

  15. Boring.

  16. The description of the app sounds like Stefon describing a club on SNL.

    Posted by: jimstoic | Jul 12, 2013 11:13:01 AM

  17. Oh please. So Gaga has invested some of her millions into a tech startup that Eric Schmidt, not Google, has also invested in. It still doesn't mean she has some developer branch as part of her drag queen-inspired "haus."

    And Terry Richardson is a world-class scum bag.

  18. I'm interested in hearing it, but still remain skeptical. And with a "rage of electronic passion and fury" it sounds like she's once again copying Madonna.

    But I'm also reminded of a few years ago, just before the release of the "Born This Way" disaster, oops, I mean, album... Gags said "it's going to be the album of the decade!" Hmmm... we're still in the same decade... so I guess ARTCRAP isn't gonna be as good as her last effort. Oh well!

  19. @Jim... when an 'artist' uses their sexuality to gain traction, they're usually not all that great/worth collaborating with. (I know that sounds kinda dark, but its true)

    You mean like Mick Jagger, Eartha Kitt, Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury, Annie Lennox, PJ Harvey, Patti Smith, Jim Morrison, and on and on...all of these people used sexuality to draw attention to themselves. Or did you mean sexual preference?

  20. Get over yourself Gaga, yawn!

    Posted by: JDW | Jul 12, 2013 11:56:43 AM

  21. Lady WHO?


    That being said, of course I'll buy her new album.

    Posted by: Mark Alexander | Jul 12, 2013 12:15:57 PM

  22. Why, why, why? would Inez and Vinood soil their reputation by collaborating with caca.

  23. You old f*ggy madonna stans are disgusting...always bashed gaga always will....keep badmouthing her hiding behind your screen losers...while she STRENGTHEN her influence in the MUSIC INDUSTRY.

  24. Oh, goodie, the Little Monsters are arriving with their foul mouths and incessant homophobia, all things their idol preaches against. Irony alert.

    It's look the good ol' days when David Archuleta fantards used to flock here.

    Posted by: ripper | Jul 12, 2013 1:08:02 PM

  25. Tell me things that madonna did for YOU gays...she once said EXPRESS YOURSELF. but that was for women to dominate their husbands...sorry gays never for you.

    So far Gaga,
    1. Attended the2009 national equality march and spoke against inequality.
    2.Cancel Target deal for being antigay.
    3. Attend grammys with discharged gay troops
    5.Who can belittle the message of BORN THIS WAY.
