    FUCK YES. and isn't is strange….because gaga didn't have THAT crazy or weird of antics… she is just an HONEST popstar and she GIVES AWAY SOOOO much of herself. before it was just this boring, sugar coated, shallow world

    gaga brought pop music to the consciousness of society. she made it ALIVE. she created something that was always t here just no one had the balls to work against the system in a mainstream way.

    Pop music sucks! Bunch of untalented fluff. No musicians, just lip-syncing and auto-tune. Just like that crappy disco.



  3. 3

    HAH, pop music is the worst, gayest form of music there is. STudio creations, with synthisized sound, auto tune, and a made up persona. It's fucking horrible, which is why you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a pop star now adays, there are so many of these talentless fucks. Just like gentleman gaga, the born this way, i was always an outcast. When actually, she was popular, went to the same school as nicky hilton, and stole her stage act from a dead girl.

    wonders if Simon is trying to woo little monsters to watch his show. the ratings has been dismal. if i remember it right, he called Lady Gaga a 'boring singer'. Its funny how people change their statements for the sake of MONEY! Oh, and Bette Midler did the same thing!! Oh the Hollywood shallowness!

    New?

    Simon never heard of Madonna?

    Another pop star who made a name for herself because of her outrageous antics & fashions?

    And Michael Jackson was another pop star who depended on the media spotlight.

    Power of the Illuminati and Freemasons is more like it.

    Re: Dark Light

    Agreed. GaGa is just rehashing what's already been done. She just has bigger multimedia to get attention.



  8. 8

    He has singlehandedly ruined pop music with his ridiculous TV show & record company. Pop music continues to get more and more fake & contrived by the minute. Lip Synching & Auto Tune has taken over. Entire CD's are made without a musician in the room.



  9. 9

    Like others said there's nothing new. This happens every few years, someone big comes along and isthe big thing on the scene. Although with GaGa she really didn't bring anything creative to pop music, just wore outfits from Roisin Murphy/Grace Jones closet studied Madonna's career(and a few others) and wrote dance pop songs and tried to force an innovative meaning in them. Flop.

    @kirknyc24 Ur an idiot if u ever believed that. He had complemented GAGA twice before. He wouldnt all of a sudden call her a obring singer. And the report was made up and comfirmed not to be true. Shows how up to date u stay. Although i do agree with u on one thing, i wouldnt be surprised if he was trying to get on fans good side to get them to whatch the show. but i already whatch it so, no change from me

    Gaga new? Really Simon? Madonna was doing things Gaga can only dream of. And before anyone's says Madonna copied pop culture, let's not forget Ms. Ciccone is the most successful solo artist in the history of American Music and Billboard Magazine. Yes, she's bigger then Elvis, Elton John, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey! If anyone doubts it, pick up the Billboard Magazine 50Year anniversary issue, they rank the most successful chart acts of all time, Gaga is not even mentioned!!! Don't get it twisted!!!



  12. 12

    WTF? CaCa has done NOTHING new in Pop Music! NOTHING! Copying is something it's been done for YEARS, so…



  13. 13

    Re: MarcTennisNJ – Don't be an idiot, Madonna has been around for 30 years, Gaga has only been around for 3, all those other acts are established for many years as well, you can't compare them with Gaga who is a fairly new star, of course she isn't going to be on any most successful lists yet, although she did hit the biggest grossing tour record for a new artist.



  14. 14

    that is ridiculous…. gaga like other pop has the addictives added that make kids love the music……. pop is just pop…. she is not that fking gr8…… leans toward mediocre after a few listens…. too manufactured……



  15. 15

    Lol haterz, I think he might know a little bit more about music than you, cuz y'know it's kinda your job. Are we over hating on gaga yet? She's about to start another HUGE tour, she's not going anywhere.
