Why Lady Gaga Sucks

Everywhere you turn Lady Gaga is there and making news. With her singing career just underway, she already has 7 Billboard Top 100 songs to her credit, and her popularity is just getting started. I do have to give her credit, she has taken her hype and made the most of it for herself. Lady Gaga started off by writing songs for Britney Spears, Fergie, Akon, and the Pussycat Dolls, and then launched her music career. While I generally just ignore people like Lady Gaga, it is hard to when she, along with her fans, are so in your face and convinced oh her greatness. Her songs are all based around weak lyrics and catchy hooks, much like Akon, who signed her. Of particular annoyance is the song Telephone, which intentionally is an offbeat song, which is the look that she loves to embrace. Lady Gaga tries her best to be as far out there and "original" as possible.  She, along with her fans, equate unusual as creative and artistically inspired, but they aren't the same thing. Those of you familiar with the Fountain by modern artist Duchamp know the difference:

A urinal is a urinal, even if you place it on its side and call it a fountain, it's still just crap; but somebody just might fall for it and believe you. Not to mention she must likely is just a copycat anyways.
