Elton John Says GaGa Will Have Long Career

| Filed under: Music MinuteElton JohnPaul McCartneyLady GaGa


We don't doubt it one bit, bb!

Sir Elton John is praising Lady GaGa once again and says she will a long career because she is so "amazingly polite and respectful" to her entourage and fans.

Sine their Grammys performance last year, the two have become close friends and Elton is convinced that GaGa will remain the Queen of Pop because she is still so grounded despite all her fame.

He adds:

"I love her, she's absolutely amazing. We've become friends. What I like about the Gaga most is that she's amazingly polite and respectful to everyone around her. What I loved most about John Lennon is that he was like that. He once gave my mum a lift to the airport and came to my agent's wedding.

The Gaga is like that. But the greatest thing about her is that she manages to let everyone think they know everything about her but no one knows anything. She's a phenomenal star - definitely someone who will be taking on the old sods like me, McCartney and Rod Stewart doing big tours for years to come. Pure genius."

We completely agree. GaGa is up there with the big names and she will most definitely have a long, successful career.

    She won't. Why? Because she is just a Madonna ripoff in stupid outfits and people will get tired of it eventually.

  2. 2

    If Born This Way manages not to be crushed under it's own hype, then yeah, I can imagine her being around for as long as any of these people.

  3. 3

    i disagree

  4. 4

    Yes she will!

    Re: Gagalicious_x
    Madonna never went the crazy outfit route, which defeats your Madonna ripoff argument and makes your point moot.

  6. 6

  8. M: says – reply to this

    Madonna will forever be the Queen of Pop and MJ the King, Perez please STFU. When GaGa is referred to the same way as Madonna "as the female artist that all others before and after are compared to which make her the greatest female artist of all time" we can talk…..oh and after a 30 year career, more hits then anyone except for the Beatles, record shattering tours, 300 million albums and ORIGINALITY! Born this Way already has rip-off written all over it (didn't MJ already do Black & White, Janet Rhythm Nation, Madonna Express Yourself and Christina Beautiful?). A major GaGa backlast will happen at some point in the next few years and I doubt the girl will last a decade. Music would be the same if GaGa didn't exist, we definitely can't say the same if there was no Madonna!

    Re: M:
    She's copying the biggest musical genius of all time? Who would that be? Mozart? Beethoven? Bach? Dylan? Lennon? Ray Charles? Miles Davis? Coltrane? Please don't say Madonna; you'll just make yourself look foolish.

    Re: jp1988
    You're calling a song a ripoff of which you haven't heard and comparing them to shitty songs that weren't that original in and of themselves? Alrighy, then….

  12. 12

    Im already tired of her, so I doubt it. People now at days like brand new things coming out all the time. Its not like the old 70s like Elton has been talking about.

  13. joor says – reply to this


    I'm sure she will succed.

  14. 14

    Give it a rest Elton.Desperate much?Geesh.

  15. 15

    i absolutely adore elton i idolise elton
    im a little shocked by this asskissing episode but yes gaga has talent big talent but she always whines and that is annoying . Maybe if she stop the whining that others where copying her and face reality she would be less annoying . Saying eva was copying her meat dress showed zero personality as it was humorus shes the only one who didnt find it hilarious…

    gone crazy, elton? comparing an ugly costume hanger with the likes of superstars? kissing tranny-arse won`t give you any credibility.

  17. 17

    You cannot put Lady Gag and John Lennon in the same sentence, it just UNHEARD OF. She is too manufactured to have any longevity of a career and people are getting a little bored of her already. Plus, her music seriously sucks. Anyone who actually has a passion for music understands that.

  18. 18

    Re: DarkAdaptedEye – Bjork did the crazy outfit shit way before Gaga.. the only reason people think this shit is new is because she gets more attention then Bjork and others who have already done it..

  19. 19

    Treads never do with out the gimmicks shes ordinary and she knows it.

  20. 20

    BA-HAHAHAH ELTON, you are one, olllld delusional codger! Was that tuna can "amazingly polite and respectful to everyone around her" when she sat in Seinfeld's booth and flipped everyone the "eff you"?!?!? Is she "amazingly polite and respectful to everyone around her" when she walks around in public almost naked, etc?!?!? You people are absolutely past the point of return!

  21. 21

    Re: jennycakes
    My argument wasn't about who did what first. It's about people calling LG a "complete Madonna ripoff" when the majority of LG's schtick is what Madonna never even did (i.e., the crazy costumes, the eccentricity, etc.).

  22. 22

    well the truth is, pretty much anybody can have a long career these days. just keep recycling old hits. of course in Gaga's case, that could be hard because she's really only had about a handful and they're all nothing but dance tunes.
    at some point her costuming is going to get old, so unless she changes some and becomes more like the lounge singer she was before her makeover, then forget it, she'll be done in a few years.

    also, comparing her to Lennon/McCartney was insane. they wrote music that appealed to more than just their age group. Gag's fans are young queens and club kids.

  23. 23

    Re: TwistinMySobriety – you´re right, people seem to not understand what a real music genious is. madonna is as shitty as lady gaga, can´t sing for her life and has absolutely no personality. I actually don´t understand what the fuss is all about with her either. The only reason this dellusional queen (Elton John) is saying these things about Gaga is b/c she tries so hard to be GLT friendly all the time because bitch knows it´s so in right now. but deep down, i bet he knows she is dog shit.

  24. 24

    Gaga won't last because her career is built on stupid gimmicks and publicity stunts. People are already getting sick of her, and perez constantly trying to push her "genius" on us is only hurting her in the long run.
    Unfortunately it seems to be the only way to have a career in pop music these days. Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna etc. are all only around because they will do anything to get people talking. If they spent as much time in the studio as they do thinking up ridiculous outfits and shit, they might actually make something worth listening to.

  25. 25

    Yes she will. All of you haters talk about how she's unoriginal and "copying" off of others. Please tell me someone who hasn't copied someone somewhere along the way? AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY? are YOU selling millions of albums like gaga? I didn't think so. STFU and get ready cause gaga's gonna be even bigger!

  26. 26

    Re: DarkAdaptedEye – Lol? Never even did? Madonna has actually worn crazy outfits. Not in public that often because she didn't have to distract people from her hideous face.

  27. 27

    Re: M:Re: jp1988 – Hagdonna is a thief, slut and a liar. Who today says " I want to be like Madonna"? Nobody !!! She WAS popular in the 80's and 90's. Nobody is trying to be her today. People want to be like an artist with a good voice and writing ability. Two thinks Slutdonna does not possess. Alright for Whoredonna's fans STALKING Lady Gaga posts to talk shit !

  28. 28

    Re: jp1988Re: M: – How much of Madonn's last few albums have been on the radio?? Not much, the only reason that horrible song 4 Minutes got ANY AIRPLAY was because Justin Timbersuck was on it !

  29. barny says – reply to this


    First of all she is NOT the ueen of pop and never will be.She is so far from being Polite and Respectful,I doubt she can even spell these 2 words.In 5-6 years she'll be gone.

  30. 30

    Re: DarkAdaptedEye – Well i guess people are wrong to call her a complete Madonna rip off.. but a lot of her stuff came from other people and i just think that's strange.. you can be inspired but i think she gets inspired a little too much.. the meat dress, Alejandro(pretty much everything in it, Madonna nod at every corner and the song sounding too much like Ace of Base : /) and the whole paying homage crap.. i mean that just sounds lazy.. she too early in her career to be doing that so much.. she should be looking for a image to completely call her "own".. just saying.. i like her music.. but I'm still iffy on the image and originality department.. :P

  31. 31

    Lady gag gag suck shit. What a disgrace the music industry has become. That isn't Music. Neither is rap crap. Music is a band with instruments, people who write their OWN Songs, not little skank whores who rip off other artists, wear rediculous costumes, pretty much look skaktastic all the time. I wish she would get her 5 minutes of fame over with allready, im SO sick of hearing about her, crappy perry and justin beaver. GOD where is the GOOD MUSIC AT anymore its ANNOYING.

  32. 32

    such a joke. i've never heard so many entertainers talking BS about a person in my life. she really knows how to manipulate people, props to that.

    Everyone has worn crazy outfits, idiot, but your lame argument doesn't justify the whole "ripoff" argument.

    Re: jp1988
    A lot of critics have written such glowing accolades about Madonna, but whatever they write about her isn't always the gospel truth; they're just opinions. To say that people before her time being compared to her (which in fact it's mostly the other way around) makes her the greatest female artist of all time is a bit of an exaggeration to which I think she would even agree. And to say music wouldn't be the same without Madonna? Can you prove that? Maybe it wouldn't have been the same…maybe it would have been actually…idk..better?!?. Maybe w/o her the music from the last 25 years would have been more organic rather than generic, and focused more on talent rather than image.

    He does? Where did he buy the crystal balls?

    She's nothing like Madonna, never has been. Gaga is a full blown musician.

    Re: DarkAdaptedEye – Haha knew that would get you all worked up. Thank you for feeding this troll. :)

    Re: Ivybby
    You KNEW that would get me worked me up? Did you even ask if I was worked up? Either you're delusional or you just like to flatter yourself, but either way, it's obvious you just have way too much free time on your hands. Try having an IQ with more than just double digits in order to get me worked up, dear. You're hardly a challenge; you're not even remotely clever.

    I so agree, I so a long bright future for her as Lady GaGa. She will be bigger and she will set many more records.

  42. 42

    No doubt about it, she will last real long and she will be bigger and set a lot more of record to come.

  43. 43

    I agree with Elton. She is really a sweet and humble human being. This is a good example what artists should be, or atleast try and be kind and noble to their fans…

  44. 44

    She might be nice like Lennon, but is ripping off Madonna! Not very original, Lady blah blah
