Quote Of The Day

| Filed under: Quote of the DayMusic MinuteLady GaGa

"GaGa is Stefani Germanotta. I don't create any separation between my birth name and my subsequent birth name–Lady Gaga. That's the point of what I'm trying to say. Gaga is not manufactured . . . it is not artificial. I wish I could give that gift to everyone on the planet–the ability for you to create an idea and perceive of something, whether it be a name or a vision for yourself, and just choose to become it. The world, and I base this on the music industry, is obsessed with artists and glamour and creativity and fashion. And artistry has become something that people believe is artificial. For myself, it is my reality. I exist at all times halfway between reality and fantasy. That's the way I was born."

- Lady GaGa tells Billboard

P.S. Watch GaGa's new music video for Born This Way (above)!!!

    She exists half way between drunk and crazy.



  3. 3

    " artistry has become something that people believe is artificial. For myself, it is my reality." Just do NOT forget this is coming out of the mouth of someone who admitted doing coke and smoking pot…

    she cant even be original or smart. her new single and video are pure crap. so lame. she is the dumbass person ever. try to buy ur own personaliy gaga



  8. 8

    I cannot stand her anymore. Self absorbed, limited talent, and the least humble entertainer these days. I hope that she can come up with some original work soon, because with all the comments I hear, her days as an "artist" are numbered.



  9. 9

    What a load of rubbish.



  10. 10

    oh look… another lady gaga post… and its not even lunch time yet in LA… *rolls eyes* i loved gaga in her Just Dance and paparazi days… but now she is just overexposed and predictable. Bring back that gaga and I might convert back into being a fan…



  11. 11

    She has lost it i dont remember her dressing like a clown 5 years ago!!! FAKE FAKE FAKE!!!



  12. 12

    That is complete utter BULLSHIT

  13. 7tizz says – reply to this

    Man, she is so lucky to be famous…like really lucky given her history. She started out as some wacky act in New York doing really bad glam music that thousands before her have done and faded away. Some producer or scout must've seen something and gave her better producers, totally different style of music, and a blonde dye job. Just Dance should have just stayed on the dance charts but pop music was really hungry for something new and she crossed over. Poker Face was what really got her noticed and that crossed over too cementing her status as a pop star. People following in her footsteps will have no such luck as her - it's really rare she is where she is now. Madonna had the exact same start as her so it only makes sense she pays homage.



  14. 14

    Haha, that's why a bunch of marketing geeks at Interscope came up with the name Lady Gaga. she is so delusional its comical at this point.



  15. 15

    sHe needs a reality check.



  16. 16

    gaga is not manufactured? ha utter bullshit! look at her when she first appeared on scene 3 years ago compared to now.. totally manufactured, she's so fucking fake. "i was born gaga" oh please you were plain & simple in your just dance, lovegame & eh eh nothing else i can say videos now you just look like a ridiculous crack whore. i mean seriously she claims she had no friends in high school well go google pictures of her back then and you'll see she had plenty of friends. NEWSFLASH: she pretends she never fit in anywhere b/c like everyone else in the world she knows gays sometimes feel like there's nowhere to turn to. gays eat up any artist who pretends to understand them, you need to realize she isn't a misfit like you, she just wants your money!!!!



  17. 17

    God she talks out of her ass way too much.. im so sick of these gag me posts. She sucks



  18. 18

    I don't understand why you guys are hating on her. Shes promoting love and acceptance, whats wrong with that?



  19. 19

    I'm sorry - I can't stand this *new* Gaga. I like her earlier music - now I am just annoyed by her theatrical BS



  20. 20

    She's so manufactured. It's 90% image and 10% talent.



  21. 21

    She's lovely. I wish more people could really hear what she's trying to say. All the people who invalidate her are just afraid to become something great.



  22. 22

    Dirty Christina Aguilera????????
    quiet same :) )))
    Madonna?????
    Express yourself :) ))))))

  25. 25

    That's how MK Ultra mind programming works to make a corporate puppet to control the masses.



  26. 26

    oops to the person I made the gem/jem comment too.. my bad…. because of the comp i am at.. posts get cut off.. So my apologies :) He did reference Jem and the holograms..lol.. and she definitely does not channel Jem.. Jem was awesome haha



  27. 27

    Wow Perez. Seriously? You are stuck SO far up her ass and I don't tihnk you'll find your way out anytime soon. Do you not realize that you look desperate? You're like the annoying, tag-along friend that everyone secretly hates. Gaga is a PRODUCT of MK ULTRA. You know this. She is way too skinny. LAY OFF THE COKE HONEY IT'S STARTING TO SHOW!!! By the way, don't you love that she totally copied Madonna? HAHA! WAY TO BE ORIGINAL BABY!!! Baby thank GOD I WAS NOT BORN THAT WAY!!!



  28. 28

    Re: Katie Rose-Angel Morris – Was Lady Garbage promoting love when she flipped off people at the baseball game a couple months ago? Also, if she was promoting acceptance and "being born this way" then wouldn't she accept the fact that her name is Stefani Germanotta? But noooo, she has to be a manufactured freakazoid. She should be honest about her love of psycho dress-up and role playing.



  29. 29

    Oh gawd, stfu you contrived manufactured cow……already, please!



  30. 30

    The fundamental problem I have with "Born This Way" is the implication that you can't change who you are. If someone doesn't like who they are- what's wrong with attempting to change? Instead of trying to tell someone "it's OK, you were born that way, be yourself", what's wrong with offering help in changing flaws???

    Also- normalcy, clothing, and given birth names are not overrated. …just sayin…



  31. 31

    It's kinda funny how everybody that's hating still takes the time to bitch. If you hate her, quit talking about her..
    I



  32. 32

    She is constantly making statements as equally as crazy as Charlie Sheen's, yet Perez doesn't make fun of her for it. She really needs to lay off the blow for a while.



  33. 33

    Re: Katie Rose-Angel Morris – love and acceptance? haha, how about lying and ripping off others? Alas, well there's suckers born everyday. Consider yourself SUCKED.



  34. 34

    Gaga also known as Marilyn Manson:

    1. You were born with dark hair.

    2. You didn't have horns or any makeup.

    3. You were not doing cocaine at the age of 1.

    4. You were not yet copying Madonna.

    Nice try but if you want the public to believe that you are no manufactured then quit the mimics, halloween costumes and go back to who you are…a plain simple Stefani.



  35. 35

    Can't believe how many dislike this. I love the alien aspect like she's trying to tell us what 2012 will be like. This is my most favorite video of hers so far and the rest I thought were only so-so. I think this song would be awesome live. Parts of this video feel like an homage to Michael Jackson too which I also like.



  36. 36

    blablabla, fuck off you tranny kunt.



  37. 37

    Gaga is not manufactured? Are you kidding me???!!!! GAGA is the most IMPERSONAL name ever! I will always just call her Stefani. I loved this video, i like her songs but I hate when she talks about herself in this way, omg! It's her personal truth about herself but It doesn't mean i have to believe and accept it.



  38. 38

    "I wish I could give that gift to everyone on the planet"??? Really? Does she think she is that oh-so-special? It just comes off that she thinks she is some enlightened person that everyone else wishes they could be like. This living in reality/fantasy is actually not such a phenomenon for an artist. Most artists live in their fantasy worlds which I think can be quite interesting - I don't think it is a unique concept that she came up with all on her own. Ugh, get a grip, Gaga. You were born a creative person. So are MANY other people in this world.



  39. 39

    I think the song is OK but she's starting to get way out there on the visual stufff. Her persona is starting to border line on the insane and not in a good way. And enough with wombs and birth….please!



  40. 40

    She'll be on Dancing With The "Stars" soon enough. And not as a musical guest. As a "celebrity" has-been.



  41. 41

    lady gaga is the msot manifactured artist in history. she is a walking product.



  42. 42

    She is lieing about her not being manufactured! She use to wear abercrombie and fitch and she looked like a preppy cheerleader. there is a video on youtube of those who helped "manufacture" gaga and they talk about how she was an ordinary girl so they decided to give her a unique name and outifts to make her popular. She didn't do it her self. Ugh she has such a big ego and takes all the credit



  43. 43

    Okay, so I normally love Gaga– but I'm not a huge fan of this single. Sounds like an 80's/90's generic pop song. I understand what she was trying to channel here, but I feel like it sounds like a million other songs I've heard. Doesn't sound like Gaga when I hear it on the radio. Also, what's up with her cheeks in this video and recently? Why are they square-ish and pointy? Any ideas, Perez? Is this permanent or make-up?



  44. 44

    I am a GAGA fan, but she has just gone too far with the new video. Did she forget how to have fun?



  45. 45

    "And artistry has become something that people believe is artificial."

    It's sad that she would even need to say this but unfortunately it's true. Too many people are afraid to take creative control of their images so they let society take creative control of their images. Then they wonder why they are unhappy and unsuccessful. Yet so many people love Gaga who can't explain why they love her. She knows why.



  46. 46

    I hate the song and this video is a ridiculous piece of crap.
    Too much stupidity to detail, but how do you like that smack in the face of Madonna??
    The bitch, gaga, had a fake space in her teeth at the end. Obviously it was a Madonna reference or diss or whatever.
    Annoying bitch.



  47. 47

    Yeah, I live somewhere near lala land myself. How come it made Gaga rich and me a fucking feckless nobody??



  48. 48

    … Oh yeah probably because I spend so much time on here when I should be doing something productive, thanks Perez now when I go to therapy I can blame it all on you instead of my horribly inept parents who cossetted me to almost complete uselessness!

  49. YUCK says – reply to this


    49

    shut up you fake fucking ugly man bitch already. no one cares you cut off your peen. just go copy more madonna songs and marilyn manson looks. #boring and over it



  50. 50

    this is the most gratuitous piece of shit ever…and she's way too copying madonna…even the front tooth suck up…
    she just needs to climb back n2 the womb she fell out of in the first scene.



  51. 51

    Gaga has officially lost her mind. Please reserve a room for her at the looney bin.

  52. mse says – reply to this


    52

    the world would have been better if someone had a coat hanger…….the sucks so bad, what a copy cat.



  53. 53

    Really?? because two years ago i'm 100% positive that she said that Lady Gaga and Stephanie were two completely different people. she keeps lady gaga for her self confidence and fans…she's shut off when she's stephanie……what a contradiction. that only means she's fake, Viva la madonna and BRITNEY!



  54. 54

    really?? that's just so weird being that 2 years ago she said that lady gaga and Stefani were completely different that "gaga was a gift to her fans and self confidence" and stefani is completely shut off..kinda like two personalities, lying sure is getting the best of her lately…or is it called spitting bull-ish?



  55. 55

    *+*+*+*+*



  56. 56

    As an educated person & profound lover of the arts I am blown away by the whole concept & production of this video!! If you don't like the song at least respect the fact that she incorporated many aspects of the arts (aside from just singing or dancing) to unfold a creative, and beautiful story which is meant to inspire us and move us to evolve into better people. What a great message of LOVE - loving yourself, others..it's just a feel good song!! All this bashing just proves the point that our society is far too JUDGEMENTAL and not able to THINK outside the box. Compared to other artists she is above & FAR BEYOND their level. Gotta give it up to my girl, she never disappoints :) & haters you're just fueling her fire, i love it.



  57. 57

    But wasn't she the one who said people are not allow to call her anything but lady gaga? And what about the product placement in her videos how is that artistic?



  58. 58

    Okay seriously who is this girl talking too? She must think all of her little monsters are stupid… She seems to be out of touch with her reality bc she wasn't born the person she is today, she became this person in order for her music to be heard and for her to be recongized. I hate those who become a hit just because their style has made them famous and they try to claim it as its always been their lifestyle. Get off the soapbox already!



  59. 59

    Re: Katie Rose-Angel Morris – and at the same time lies about herself. With that said how much can you believe in what she promotes????



  60. 60

    Well….I want to like it. I really do, because the message is powerful. So I'll say what I liked first, so I don't seem like complete Negative Nancy. I LOVED the day of the dead skeleton makeup. Whoever did that was PHENOMENAL. That part was definitely hot. The whole birthing and the reaching in the crotch and afterbirth and BLECH. I regret eating while watching this. You can talk about being born this way without "showing" birth. I think she could've achieved that with having every one of those dancers be different sizes, colors, creeds, whatever. For everyone being reborn this way, they're all damn thin and that's a shame. The message is that we're all born this way and good enough, yet we all apparently need to look like stick figures with our cheekbones sticking out. She's so thin now that with those fake cheekbones she looks like she's suffering from malnutrition. Gaga has gotten FAR too thin. I just wish she'd have made the message more about how we're ALL beautiful and born this way instead of just the beautiful model type dancer people. She missed out on a chance to show ALL her Little Monsters that they're good enough.



  61. 61

    jesus christ, who likes this piece of shit? until now she was plain weird, now she's fuckin loony, she scared the shit out of me. I swear I will have nightmares for at least 2 days. Please, please, someone get rid of this slimy, disgusting, talentless, weird ass ugly woman. god, i can't even run out of insults



  62. 62

    Fuck this chick is getting full of herself. I may be showing my age, but she's a total rip-off (not musically, but her "persona") of David Bowie, for God's sake.



  63. 63

    I'm over her. I was a big fan in the beginning, and often defended her wackiness because I considered her a genuine artist. I started feeling annoyed with her around the meat dress incident, but the "egg" and the following interviews confirmed that for me - and now this video just puts me over the edge. Her efforts to come across as not manufactured are getting boring and repetitive. We get it - you're revolutionary, born this way, etc. I actually don't mind this song, but I could have done without the 3 minute intro. She just comes across as extremely egotistical and desperate to me now, and as a former fan it's really disappointing and off-putting. "This is the manifesto of mother monster." Oookay.



  64. 64

    she has completely bought into the idea of her own self-importance, which has sucked all the fun out of her music. Gaga is completely manufactured, she needs to get over herself. I'm bored.

    I like what Charo said about her, "I can tell you, to me, Lady Gaga is Madonna with diarrhea. I don't like it when somebody copies somebody and just adopt it. Like, their own idea."



  65. 65

    Did she copy this from Kerli as well?



  66. 66

    Britney 2 - Gaga 0 (Song + Video) :p and that´s what you call dance steps ?



  67. 67

    I LOVE Lay Gaga but this video is a mess. Her dancing looks way too choreographed and it has nothing to do with the snog. It is about loving one self and all she does is dance around and touch herself sexually.



  68. 68

    So your Prince, next your name will be a symbol.



  69. 69

    Wake up people, no one is original today. Everyone copies, she is just more famous. Everyone has done something that someone has done before. Thats life.
    And this generation we just wants to see people fail. Guess what, she wont fail.
    Peace out.



  70. 70

    Good lord, she thinks so highly of herself, she's such a fucking filibustering narcissist! Intellectualize it all you want, Gags, you sing about banal or obvious things with virtually no insight and frequently with "borrowed" inspirations.



  71. 71

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – Everyone doesn't copy. Lame ass excuse!



  72. 72

    She didnt make up the name Lady Gaga for herself. She is SO full of shit. "Gaga is not manufactured" Um doesn't this bitch lie and say she didn't grow up rich? SHE WENT TO SCHOOL WITH PARIS HILTON. She was just a rich ungrateful brat that wanted more.



  73. 73

    um. birthing videos make me queasy in general.. this was too bizarre.



  74. 74

    Piggy hilton did a poll for people to say if they liked Britney Spear's video Hold It Against Me. Wheres the poll for Lady Gaga? BIASED asshole.



  75. 75

    Just when you think she can't get any dumber, she finds a new hole in the floor to dop down lower. Talk about bullshit. This is the same bitch that said "Don't call me GaGa in bed" right?? Why, if there is not difference to her? Pathetic poser bitch.



  76. 76

    Since her album "Stefani"… which goes by her same name didnt sell, she one day woke up with the amazing idea of Lady Gaga to see if she could sell something that way.. ding ding ding… yeh it cought the attention of many consumist people and got it.



  77. 77

    W-T- F was that! does she think she's God or mother nature now?!? I am SOOO over all these publicity stunts she pulls. Just make good music and act like a respectable human being. And Perez please get out of her A$$. I am so tired of you worshiping her for no good reason. Her music is good but all the stunts are totally turning me off to her



  78. 78

    She did NOT come up with the name Lady GaGa herself. She took GaGa from something else. Can't remember but she didn't invent it.



  79. 79

    Re: OH MY GOD
    This coming from someone with a Britney avatar. Funny!



  80. 80

    Delusions



  81. 81

    I forced myself to watch this video, she knocked off Aliens and most definately express yourself and vogue. Just because you put on a a skeleton mask, it's still the same scene where Madonna was dancing in a suit or tux with one guy before grabbing her crotch. Lame…



  82. 82

    I like Lady GaGa, but I think she has gotten a little full of herself. This video is repulsive and offensive. I don't find it artistic at all.



  83. 83

    I am loving all this hate for her!! Finally people are realizing that this bitch is so not worth the hype! Hopefully with the combination of that horrible song and video the fast downfall of lady gag gag will finally occur…and boy it can't happen soon enough!



  84. 84

    I think it's safe to say she has lost the plot. Never mind perez being so far up her arse, she is so up her own arse! I couldn't stand to watch that video. i too was a fan of her but after seeing her in that egg and this video i can safely say she repulses me. She really should stop trying hard to be different, its getting ridiculous. I can't wait for the day the air a "where is she now" on e!



  85. 85

    Perez hilton ruined lady gaga for the world



  86. 86

    Cue Phaggez inventing a thousand different ways that he can post this shiteous video over and over again.



  87. 87

    Wow! That was seriously pretentious.



  88. 88

    Everyone that I talk to hates this song



  89. 89

    What is up with all the satanic symbolism in music videos these days in general?



  90. 90

    Re: Mushu Baby – She took the name from a Queen song ("Radio GaGa") because she claims to be a "fan".



  91. 91

    You know, it really seems like she just threw up a bunch of words and tried to put them together in what she thought was an intelligent way. Also, the more thought and money we give her, the less likely she is to go the fuck away. She is one of the most artificial, manufactured, phony people I have ever seen. She's really not even all that good vocally truth be told. I think it's funny she's all about "Born This Way" but she's not all trying to be who she was actually born.



  92. 92

    She also did not "artistically" come up w/ the idea of the painted skeleton face, just so ya know in case she says she did.
    The guy w/ her has his entire face and head tattooed like that. She must have seen him on the internet and got him to do the video.
    It does look really cool but his beautiful face is destroyed now forever.



  93. 93

    I was hoping for a more Christina Beautiful video. A video less about Lady Gaga being different and more about embracing her fans that do feel different and empowering them to feel good about themselves. I do not think this videos does that, but I do think Christina’s video did that. Plus her dancing around in a bikini? I really doubt that made any women/girl feel good about themselves nor was it empowering. I think that it is just her saying that the only way a female can make statement and get attention for the statement they are trying to make is by being half-naked. I was disappointed. I thought I might like this video for the message she was trying to give, but I think she missed the opportunity for sure.



  94. 94

    Re: AprilB – Born This Way is not about accepting who you are at birth, obviously it's about becoming anyone you want to be… total freedom from prejudice. That means the freedom to be gay, to be tattooed, to dye your hair or pierce your nose or whatever… self expression. With Gaga, she takes it to a new level, but it is unfortunate that her "self expression" is not well understood or received by most people and it overshadows her innate talent… which is a helluva singer (better than Madonna).



  95. 95

    Can't believe all the Gaga haters on here! Its obvious that most of you take her much too seriously or not nearly seriously enough, as she has said herself. I love Gaga and her message. She is one of the most talented artists in the world today and you should all just get a sense of humor and learn to cherish and accept those who are not exactly like you!



  96. 96

    I used to enjoy her music, but lately it has turned to crap. I guess she'd rather shock people then actually perform relevant music. Also, this video doesn't seem to be getting the message of the song across. All I see is her with her legs spread wide open. Needless to say, this video made me want to puke!!!



  97. 97

    Re: Starlit – She got the Gaga from a Queen song"radio Gaga"



  98. 98

    Omg can u people grow the fuck up it's not that deep haters make me sick



  99. 99

    Re: rebbiej – says the person with the Britney Spears picture!! too funny for words. I almost chocked on my pepsi when I read your quote!! THE SIGNING DUCK IS THE WORST MANUFACTURED PET ON THE $%/& PLANET



  100. 100

    anyone else seeing the masonic symbols…
