    A real ANTHEM for today's youth,,,,YOU and CACA say that…doesnt mean its true.

  4. 4

    Goodness that sounds positively GROTESQUE. Like tortured cats. :(

  5. 5

    Anthem?? Really?? I don't think that a rip of Express Yourself is my anthem.

  6. 6

    Yep it still sucks.

  7. 7

    btw it sounds even more like Express Yourself than ever.

  8. 8

    I don't do it for the money I don't do it for the fame?? Woooow what a bunch of bullshit. That was hard on my ears, it sucks when your backup singers are better than you.

  9. 9

    Even sung A Cappella it still sounds like a Madonna rip off…

    it sounds awful if was not for the backup singers this would it be even worse. she should stick to the maddona,s version. because without the music and the inhencement on the voice she just sounds like screaming cow,or goat

  12. 12

    Flawless compared to what ?

  13. 13


  14. 14

    still letting the fans piss in her hair I see………….

  15. 15

    NATIONAL ATHEM?? WTF perez!!! tell me..no, really..tell in what effing way are these lyrics special!!!
    jesus!gaga made vudo out of you!! i like gaga but you star to annoying with that obsession..oh gaga and that adele thing!

  16. 16

    Re: most everyone else… yep.

  17. 17

    you're all losers

  18. 18

    I also hate this yellow hair… it's obvious it's supposed to be crayola yellow but the roots detract from that - either do it 100% or nothing… ick. I'm over her - which is sad bc her at the piano just singing can be magical. The gimmick is up and I've moved on.

  19. 19

    It's bad when the backup singers are more talented than the main artist. It still sucked and sounded like she threw the arrangement together 5 minutes before going on stage.

    I love how she keeps saying that she's not doing this for money or fame. Protesting too much?

  20. 20

    Know whats really fun tho? Madonna was at the concert in the audience…suck on that gaga haters who think she is crappy. So was Elton Jon, Sir Paul Mccartney, Beyonce, Billy Joel and others and they are like legends so yea stfu

  21. 21

    not her best.. but you people are making it sound like someone's dying. i'm pretty sure she's doing 1000x better than any of you could.

  22. 22

    Man Perez, you have a total blind spot when it comes to GagHag. Her "singing" was absolutely horrendous. If she tried out for American Idol she would come off as one of those delusional nit-wits who thinks they can sing, talk about screechy. I agree, her back-up singers sounded a lot better than her.

    "I don't do it for the money I don't do it for the fame…"
    Boy that's going to come back to bite her….

    Mariah Still Queen of Pop Debuts
    Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" rockets to a record-setting debut on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart. The first single and title track from the star's third studio album storms Pop Songs at No. 14 with 4,602 plays, according to Nielsen BDS.

    By launching at No. 14, "Born" logs the second-highest start in the Pop Songs list's archives. Only Mariah Carey's "Dreamlover" began at a higher rank, having soared in at No. 12 the week of Aug. 14, 1993. Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" and Madonna's "Frozen" follow with No. 16 arrivals.

    eeeeeeeeeeeek, and I actually like this song sort of…

  26. 26

    Honestly, you calling this "flawless", "amazing" and "absolutely breath-taking" proves you have absolutely no music cred whatsoever. If it were anyone else you would be slamming them big time.

  27. 27

    Absolutely the most amazing concert I have ever been to. She KILLED it last night! Burned the mother fucking place down!

  28. 28

    This was totally EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EPIC FAIL!!! The lady has some talent but not for "singing".

  29. 29

    GagHag is a prime example of why gays should not be incorporated into mainstream society. I blame them for supporting this crap.

  30. 30

    lmao even when artist can sing really good, people find a way to hate them.. give it a rest.

  31. 31

    OMG HER VOICE!! IT'S SO AMAZING! love you gurl ;)

  32. 32

    Perez' ass-kissing of this performer borders on psychotic.
    She's mediocre in a mediocre music industry.
    And the song is just okay, not a long that will be played 20 years from now. No one today has songs that will be played 20 years

  33. 33

    ohhh her voice is flawless.
    just amazing, amazing, amazing.

  34. 34

    Surprise surprise! Perez is speaking of gaga in a positive light!

    I can't wait til it comes out that she is a total pothead/drug user and that she actually hates gays.

  35. 35





    PS: anthem?? my ass

  36. 36

    Pssst, wanna hear a secret? Gaga is actually a cock-hating lezbo. Just listen to the lyrics of "Poker Face".

  37. 37

    Ok…I love Gaga, huge fan. Follow her, buy the music, I downloaded "BTW" the minute it was out…saw her in Philly, have a few shirts, etc. etc…BUT….even the most dedicated Gaga fan (aka people like me) are getting tired of hearing about her. Overexposure is going to ruin her. People are more interesting when they are talented and use the talent to get ahead, not all these 'extra' things. Be a singer and stick to your talents. She is truly the best when she's simple and on the piano. A true gift she has. I just feel like Perez, you are overdoing it with talking about her every 3rd of 4th post!

  38. 38

    I'm a huge Gaga fan, I pretty much love everything she does…..but even I think enough is enough. Overexposure is gonna kill her career.

  39. 39

    Psychotic, inhuman bitch looks better/more appealing lately.

  40. 40

    Re: WowzaMagazine.com – LOL, I was thinking the same thing!

  41. 41

    BTW, this is no anthem for "today's youth", you sick bastard!

    There are a-lot of "today's youth" that hate this sewer scum and what she stands for!

  42. 42

    i was there, it was sooooo amazing! she's so inspiring and grounded, i love her! if anyone wants to see all the songs at the concert, go to my youtube page: youtube.com/sohoshoppergirl

  43. 43

    Re: blaakq – so true. Atleast GAGA can sing though.

  44. 44

    wow, i actually used to like lady gaga but this site is just too much. all you do is write about her and its not just news, its EPIC! WONDERFUL! BEST EVER!
    even when she says shes on a freaking drunk diet or embrace drug-use you keep it and says its absolutely FAB! thats nothing but crazy man.
    i dont know, im just fed up. i cant even hear a song of hers anymore without feeling sick in my stomach. too much ass-licking and way too much exposure. yuck…

  45. 45

    Stick to the original, this version SUCKS! She seems to think that she can do anything and people will love her. Wow, fart in a can…. woo hooo isn't she talented! LOL

  46. Tasos says – reply to this


    Since when does one declare a musical piece of 'her own' an anthem for a group of people? … a group to which she doesn't belong? Instead of arriving in an egg, she should have sported a pair of ballz before her peers, to perform her rip off Madonna's music, and then claim it a gay anthem and herself as its composer. Unless GaGa is lampooning the ego that celebrity can breed, her presumption is offensive, obnoxious, off-putting, and it certainly is not "performance art".

  47. 47

    I don't care at all what any of you say, as someone who works in the music industry, I think she sounds amazing. She always will. She is one of the best artists to come around in a long time. And get used to her. People like me will continue to buy her concert tickets and albums and she won't go anywhere. I love you, Gaga!!!!

  48. 48

    talented, but this does nothing but show her as just another screecher from the AI generation. gf should sit her ass down on the piano and write some decent tunes - this "I'm such an outsider like you" bullshit is TIRED.

  49. 49

    I don't care at all what any of you say, as someone who works in the music industry, I think she sounds wonderful. She always will. She is one of the best artists to come around in a long time. And it's people like me that me that will continue to purchase concert tickets and albums, and she won't be going anywhere. I love you, Gaga!

  50. 50

    That was really beautiful and inspiring. She has a good message for others and i like her.

  51. 51

    Too bad the song sucks and everyone agrees she ripped off Madonna.

  52. 52

    Re: Matthew Montgomery – What part of the music industry?Cashier at HMV?

  53. 53

    Amazing !!! she can sing !! , not as Whoretina only screams like a whore

  54. 54

    anthem?? these lyrics are terrible!!! "Don't be a drag, just be a queen" hahahaha, if you want lyrics search bob dylan and then see why his music has lasted decades and why this will be forgotten in about 6 months

  55. 55

    she's shit!

  56. 56

    Re: morgankrista – people like you said things like that when just dance first came out, and look at where she is now: at madison square garden for the 3rd time, tonight will be the 4th.

  57. 57

    I like Lady GaGa and am a fan but this just hurt my ears =/
    There's no need for your incessant fan girl cheerleading Perez.

  58. 58

    I was there in person! She was awesome! There is a new Queen of Pop, Madonna is soooooooooooooooo done!

  59. 59

    She is very Crazy and Qnique Lady! lol

  60. 60

    Lovely! (:

  61. 61

    Re: sohoshoppergirl – just dance/poker face are just songs that are exactly the same as all others in the charts right now -they will be forgotten, to be an artist you need legendry songs that will last forever and 'let me ride on your disco stick' isnt exactly a classic, shes just in her 15 minutes of fame right now

  62. 62

    Re: tenyearsgone – You're a disgusting human being, do you know that? They said that about black people not 100yrs ago. Are you going to suggest public lynching next? It is so pathetic the way people are treating homosexuals and lesbians. The worst thing is the contradictory attitude these fucking Christians (and probably you) have. You all say that it's a disgusting lifestyle choice, but it's not. People are BORN THIS WAY and so many people struggle with it. You ought to take a good look at yourself in the mirror. YOU and so many others are the reason these people kill themselves everyday…how does it feel to have blood on your hands?

  63. 63


    why can't she stay in tune. I really want to like her as she has some good moments .. but man… brutal… i'd be upset if that were me…

  65. 65

    Lol not doing it for the fame?? what about your album called The Fame and the title track, the chorus of which reads:
    Doing it for the
    Cuz we wanna live the life of the rich and
    Doing it for the
    Cuz we gotta taste for champagne and endless

  66. 66

    I love it. It's amazing. I don't understand how people can be so cruel. If you don't like it, don't listen!

  67. 67

    Re: pearlchavez – and with your comment about "fucking christians," you are doing the exact same thing as he is. I happen to be a very devoted Christian and yet I have no problem with gays. Some of my best friends happen to be gay. Hell, my godfather is gay.
    If you're going to try and preach about loving and openness, maybe you should try it yourself first

    Re: pearlchavez – and with your comment about "fucking Christians", you are doing the exact same thing as he is. I happen to be a very devoted Christian, and yet I have no problem with gays. Some of my best friends are gay. Hell, my godfather is gay.
    Next time you are going to scold somebody on something, make sure you're not doing the exact same thing in your comment

  69. 69

    Flawless was Christina Aguilera's version of Ain't No Way at the Grammys. This sounds ok. GaGa can def sing but she isn't one of the great vocalists nor is she as great of a performer, dancer and artist as Madonna

  70. 70

    It wasn't that bad. I've heard worse from so called singers before. And Tenyearsgone, you are a terrible person. I blame your mother because she should have swallowed.

  71. 71

    This song is a complete bastardization of Express Yourself, Deeper & Deeper & Vogue. The idea that THE WHOLE WORLD thinks it sounds this way but you don't? You're lying to yourself because your meal ticket is a total fraud.
    I think it's revolting that she is on the cover and in public with horns and wtf ever like some kind of freak, basically insinuating that gay people are freaks, when, they are not and frankly it is totally insulting.
    I'm a very proud hag, I came to this site 5 years ago because I loved Perez's humor but a) it's totally gone downhill & not funny anymore, b) he's totally sold out, c) he's forsaken Madonna so he can ride Lady Gaga's coattails, and d) he is a very poor representation of the gay community.

  72. 72


  73. 73

    Love her

  74. 74

    Sounds very screechy & screamy. Certainly not flawless or breathtaking : /

  75. 75

    She sang fine, she just was a little too loud. I was at her concert in AC this past Saturday…hate on her all you want, but go see her show and then talk. She knows how to put on a fuckin show better than anyone I've ever seen.

  76. 76

    no harmony, and she's having flat some!

  77. 77


  78. 78

    Re: evolheather77
    Not all gay men like the idea of "hags" either. Just saying…

  79. 79

    This overhyped ugly person is talentless Madonna rip off.

  80. 80

    Re: didiroro – then fucking go to another site or start one. We're sick of your same old bullshit complaining. But you won't go do that because you obviously can't

  81. 81

    I am all about the Gaga but that is sloppy. It's all over the place. Im sure if it's done in the studio it will sound MUCH better!

  82. 82

    Fantatic, love her so much.
    Can't wait to see her myself when she is performing BTW.

  83. china says – reply to this


    someone get off the cat`s tail and do it fast!!!
    that`s considered singing? LOL

  84. china says – reply to this


    you definitely have to be born brave to sit through this crap…i`m not.
    ten seconds, period.

  85. 85

    Re: rcs – Love Gaga but "I dont do it for the money or the fame"…she said on 60 minutes she told everyone shes going to be a mega star someday.
    oh well

  86. 86

    She totally ripped off Madonna.. just like everyone is saying (for good reason). And her entire pathetic attempt to cover her tracks at the Grammys by mentioning Whitney Houston made me lose even more respect for her. I actually loved Lady Gaga before the entire "meat dress" stupidity.. and she has been all down hill from there.
    Madonna may have been around for a loooong time.. But she has loyal fans that are in their mid 30's and early 40's.. Gaga could have won over all of those fans if she had stuck to her own creativity. It's like she got cold feet or got nervous trying to live up to expectations, so she decided to copy off of a legend. Her biggest mistake was thinking everyone above 25 wouldn't notice. Can't make a career off of naive high schoolers Gaga!

  87. 87

    this was beautiful. haters step off,

  88. 88

    Re: GoodBoyNC – Good point, actually.

  89. 89

    anyone who uses those backup choirs for their song needs to be slapped

  90. 90

    someone needs to fire the backup singers. wheeww. rough to listen to.

  91. 91

    Sounds great! Just posted a similar story on my own blog at www.jmusicology.com, check it out!
