Whoa. That's saying A LOT!
But then again, she does have a point.
Liz Rosenberg has been by Madonna's side for many, many years. In a recent interview, she was asked to talk about the rise of Lady GaGa and how her career is parralleling that of Madge's. Turns out, Liz thinks that GaGaloo is doing far more in this early stage of her career than Madonna had done in the 80s. She explained:
“When Lady Gaga’s record came out and she was doing TV all over the world, I would say it’s five times more than Madonna did. If they’re not saying ‘You’re overexposed,’ then you’re not doing your job. The appetite is insatiable. It’s way more extreme than it used to be on the wardrobe part. Some divas work directly with couture designers; some have stylists who pick out their clothes. Any way you look at it, fans expect much more. They used to just expect a great record and maybe a little press. The revelation of a lot of their lives is amped up these days. Drama, though, doesn’t always equate with commercial success.”
It should also be acknowledge that the Queen of Pop didn't have as many outlets as GaGa has to promote herself with. There was no such thing as the internet. TV had like 10 channels. We have no doubt that Madge would've picked up her game in promoting

But kudos for acknowledging how hard our wifey works! We think people forget that sometime, which we don't think is fair.
