    a lot of bitter folks on this sight, judging by the comments. I came to this article because I’m a fan of her music. Why did the haters come? To… feel better about themselves. haha, but seriously, I took two minutes from my life to enjoy my evening and read a little story about Gaga. Who the hell takes time out of their life to read an article about someone they seem to despise, to be hateful? a hand full of people anyway.

    also the remixes are amazing. listening now :)

    There’s nothing wrong with making a profit, and compromise is a part of life. If she only worked with people or corporations who were in complete political agreement she wouldn’t have a voice.

    I remember once hearing a story about an up and coming black musician being angry with an older black musician. The younger one felt the elder had “compromised” too much to the white audience in his career (yessa massa sort of thing). The elder felt that his compromise had enabled the younger to be less compromising and still famous, that he had paved the way for more change.

    There is a limit to how much change we can make and Gaga is already showing me more than I expected in my lifetime.

    I personally like the song. I did find it amusing that the car engineer was a “white guy” when almost certainly very few of the real engineers are white (if any?).

    I think it would be fascinating, also, to discuss the nature of irony in both Gaga’s work and this commercial. Fame is desirable, ephemeral, grandiose, and fake all at once. I wonder what Andy Warhol would think?

    At Richard, do you really think Gaga has any say over the song after writing it? Her record doesn’t really care whether or not someone is pro- or anti-lgbt.
