    Problem with gimmicks is soon or later it turns to schtick.



  2. 2

    uhmmmmm, YEAH, like DID YOU KNOW REALIZE THAT MARIO ? Have you NOT READ REAL PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT HER? or even worse, DO YOU MARIO, not really talk to her in DEPTH? It has been obvious, to most, from a few months in, that this gaga bit is a gimmick, from a girl who was originally insecure about her looks and became someone else in order to perform.



  3. 3

    And he is so fucking right!!! I say it all the time if she was so talented she would have made it as the dark haired girl behind the piano. Instead she had to dye her hair blonde, dress like a fool to get attention and write and co-write more popish songs.



  4. 4

    She is all gimmicks and no talent. She is almost over.



  5. 5

    Fuck..FINALLY someone with brains!!! And he's right! An era attracted to gimmicks, because people are lazy and dumb.



  6. 6

    Hey dick breath, you do realize this is a slam?



  7. 7

    Her current gimmick is : I was bullied by mean girls who called me a slut.



  8. 8

    That is pretty funny and accurate. Gaga is like the metal hair bands of the 80s. But who will be her Nirvana?



  9. 9

    And he would be right on. I'm surprise you would but this quote on here you do realize he's dissing her right? Along with what society considers amazing these days aka gaga.



  10. 10

    Not a gimmick, just a mimic.

    Re: SlaveMeh – You STILL just cannot get it right….she is a PERFORMANCE ARTIST! She changes her look for reasons that are NOT because she is not talented….Look at the reviews for her new album…Rolling Stone for example "Brilliant, disarmingly great"….this is by people that actually know about music….not the the haters here that have armchair opinions….She is real, legit and talented….her hair color and costumes are just a part of her artistry, vision and complicated personae…. It complements her amazing talent….Got it yet? Her new album is like no other….Again, just accept…don't hate…Re: CaliCoyote – Read the above.

    haha Perez is too dumb to even realize that Larry King is making an underhand dig at his "wifey" She is a GIMMICK! A novelty; just an act. Without all the "smoke and mirrors" what is left? Nothing but your typical Hollywood entitled dimwit… her gimmick is getting old fast- I suggest she try something new for attention- the outfits and over the top nonsense isn't exciting anymore.. and honestly what was once unpredictable is now predictable- the prediction is always lady gaga will wear weird shit for attention and no one will really care. A lot of celebs recently have said that her look at me antics take away from the purpose of the events (award shows etc) to make them all about her like a lady gaga freak show.

    He said that perfectly!!! True.

    Re: sanfran1 – please don't quote rolling stone as a source that "knows" music.. Rolling Stone is no longer a credible source.. they put snoooki on the cover and she has NOTHING to do with music and is so off course with what rolling stone should be covering… Any music magazine that features a reality show smutbag on the cover clearly has no business reviewing anything music wise.



  16. 16

    Larry nailed it! The old guy still has it!



  17. 17

    LOL, love it

    Re: CaliCoyote – It's one thing that you don't like her but she has talent hater (none liker) or not, you can't deny that. She is amazing on the piano with other things and that is talent.



  18. 18

    WOW…MArio actually allowed something about GAGA to be posted that wasnt kissing her ass! So it is a gimmick and she wasnt born that way..personally i call the gimmick madonna v1.5

    Re: sanfran1 – Rolling stone has no credibility period!!

    Wake up people! Some of the best minds in the industry clearly see her gimmick. It IS a great gimmick yet so many of you are still being mind fucked into believing she is some new age, musical messiah. WAKE UP!

    Back handed compliment

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – I totally agree. She is talented and very good to her fans. I would still buy her music regardless what she wore. Not many artists are as caring as she is. She has a bit of that Princess Diana sparkle in her. I still can't comprehend why people hate her so much…



  24. 24

    Re: sanfran1
    Wow .. the fact that you mentioned Rolling Stones just shows how stupid her fanbase is .. xD

    "Her album is like no other" - I have to agree with that tho xD - biggest drop in sales every :)
    Shes amazing!

    Anyone who takes advise on talent from Larry King has a screw loose. Larry King in his earlier part of his career, was a criminal and bad check writer. He was later known to lie about knowing baseball great and Dodger legend Sandy Koufax. Anything this cat says I would take with a grain of salt.

    Re: SlaveMeh
    When did Rolling Stone lose their credibility? When they put a half naked 17 year old Britney Spears on the cover? I guess when you and your ilk on here can write better than the journalists who write for RS, then we'll starting citing you as someone credible.



  27. 27

    Re: oxceranoid – She is no where near anything princess Diana was.. i don't know where you can even compare them..thats fucking ridiculous.. such a insult to someone dead….



  28. 28

    Re: GoodBoyNC – Who the fuck brought up britney!!! I think its funny anytime someone says something about gaga her fans bring up britney!! Baby we know who britney is when shes not on stage shes the southern small town girl that dresses normal when not on stage!! Who the fuck is gaga where does stephani start and lady gaga end!! I never said i was a music critic but i can say that Born This Way is SHIT the Fame and Fame Monster was/is 100 times better!!!



  29. 29

    Re: oxceranoid – You need slaped in the mouth!! Lady Gaga is no where close to Princess Diana!!!



  30. 30

    Re: SlaveMeh
    I brought up Britney the same reason you're always in a GaGa post: because I can! And I knew it would get a rise out of you because you're so fucking predictable. And you're right: You're not a music critic, so don't expect anyone to take your ramblings seriously.



  31. 31

    Even an old dork like Larry knows crap when he hears/sees it.



  32. 32

    Re: GoodBoyNC – And like were going take your ramblings seriously!! How did you get a rise out of me where in my post does it look like im mad??

    Spoken by a man known as much for his suspenders as his show. Hehe. Whatever works.



  34. 34

    Re: @v@ – That would sorta make him an expert on gimmickry, eh?



  35. 35

    Re: SlaveMeh
    Right..because your posts just exude love and happiness!

    Re: MsJules
    Rolling Stone isn't JUST about music. They also cover current events, politics, and current pop culture, of which Snookie is a part. I don't care for her myself, but having her on the cover doesn't undermine their credibility when reality TV is very much a part of our culture. In the past they have had movie stars, TV stars, comedians, politicians, boy bands, models, cartoon characters, athletes, daytime TV hosts, late night TV hosts, TV & movie cast ensembles, etc. on the cover.

    Re: Phibes – She's outdone and trumped him by a country universe on the ensemble gimmicks for sure…almost to the point of OCD-ness.



  38. 38

    Yup…cheap gimmicks…and it NEVER LAST.



  39. 39

    Larry King is a national treasure.



  40. 40

    LOL, I don't feel so old anymore. I called it along time ago. 99 cents anyone? Performing artist my ass, and Mario knows it!! He's not B/Sing me. Laughing all the way to the bank Perez?



  41. 41

    LOL !!! A Gimmick Indeed! I remember when Cyndi Lauper created a unique persona by dressing creatively AND ACTING CRAZY! But at least Lauper was, and still is, very talented; and left the crazy persona (gimmick) a long time ago to become a legendary singer. Lady Gaga has two options: She might continue her gimmick and kill her career short, Or she can stop being a circus freak and focus on only playing her piano and sing. THE LATER WILL SAVE HER… ’cause Lady Gaga is talented, not as much as Cyndi Lauper or Christina Aguilera but got her talent!

    she needs to well die
