Lady GaGa Fans Air Their Grievances

If you are a Lady GaGa fan who sat around yesterday waiting for her “Bad Romance” video to make its way online, then you’re a Lady GaGa fan who ended their day with sad frown-y face. The singer, photographed above by Max Abadian for her upcoming Flare Magazine cover shoot, initially announced the clip would premiere on her site on Monday. But by the afternoon, Cherrytree Records tweeted the following: “The ‘Bad Romance’ video is delayed. When you see it- we hope tomorrow- u’ll see Lady G has been working to make it perfect.Thx 4 ur patience.”

At any rate, they say curiosity killed the cat. Or, in this case, the cat-suited pop star. So delving into comments posted at fansite GaGa Daily proved to be impossible to resist. Below is a sampling of some of the messages.

* “I hope it is up at 12:00 tonight. i was up till 4am last night and woke up at 6am. i only had 2 hours to sleep.”

* “Tomorrow??!! UhhHuhh….Yeah right……we’ll see about that. I dont beleive anything I read any more…”


* “ah what a tease! i got some serious blue balls for bad romance!”

* “I cant believe she would do this to us. I’ve been waiting since mid-night.. Im so mad, I dont even want to watch it anymore. How disappointing for us ALL.”

* “All I can say is poor Gaga! She has to write and compose music, sing, perform live, design the stage and outfits, rehearse choreos for the tour, do TV and radio interviews, photoshoots, shoot videos, and now, on top of all that, she has to EDIT HER VIDEOS. All that JUST TO PLEASE US, her beloved fans. When does she eat or sleep??”

* “its f***ing stupid that they release a date and get everyone excited and don’t show it. How about you f***ing have it ready and then you let people know when you’ll show it.

* “i hope the video comes out at 12 am pacific time, cos that will mean it is 8 am uk time, and that means i can watch it before school, i’ve had like no sleep cos i’ve been worrying about seeing it lol.”

* “she’s no human, she’s a goddess”

* “I dunno, it takes years of college for people to learn how to professionally edit music videos. Gaga is amazing, but I doubt she edits her own videos. Whatever the reason, I’ll be patient.”

* “Take your time, Gaga. Your monsters will wait.”

    “frown-y face”? Really?

  • brasstax

    Robbie, you do realize you’re going to be terribly tortured and ridiculed from now until the point many of us just get bored coming back here, right?

  • DocStrange

    @brasstax: yup. Just like what happened to the writer who turned into a blog for TV Guide.

  • Jess Harvell

    really? …really?

  • Nicolars

    It is kind of sad when Gaga fan comments are as literate as the writer of the post.

  • KingofPants

    This is going to end extremely poorly.

  • KingofPants

    Because it began extremely poorly, you see.

  • Dickdogfood

    Uh…hi to you too, Robbie.

  • TheRunningboard7

    Best of luck, Robbie…

  • marahe

    what a whimper-y way to start.
    paragraphs would have been nice, to say the least.

  • JohnOO

    The video?

    By the way, that is as crappy a picture as any I’ve seen.

  • TheRunningboard7

    Also: Any post that contains “Air” and “Grievances” should also mention Titus Andronicus… but that’s a bit lofty an aim. And an incredible personal bias.

  • Dickdogfood

    I mean, I assume you’re not (say) Robbie Rist or Robbie Robertson or Robbie Williams, but a clarification of such matters would help some.

  • brasstax

    @Dickdogfood: Yes, perhaps an introduction was in order, don’t you agree? I mean, in walks some new guy named Robbie and lays down a fairly terrible opening post about Lady Gaga’s video being pushed back and OMGLOL at the people who post on her fanboards, makes a mess of the curiosity/cat figure of speech, and assaults our more forgiving nature by immediately bringing the word “frown-y” into play (“frowny” would have sufficed, Robbie).

  • Nicolars

    @Dickdogfood: It could be Robbie Nevil.

  • brasstax

    Maybe Robbie’s just a temp. Or if not a temp, just a lowly cog in the Buzznet machinery. Introducing himself would only bring shame upon his name and his family’s name.

  • ObtuseIntolerant

    So far, I am only happy if this “Robbie” is Robbie Williams. Oof. Away we go…

  • Nicolars

    @ObtuseIntolerant: Even on his worst drug and booze bender, Robbie Williams could do much better than this.

  • fre2daa

    It’s actually very disrespectful to Idolator readers (of years) to start posting without a proper introduction of the new writer.

  • propaganda-artist

    Uh. Good luck, Robbie.

  • loudersoft

    Hi Robbie. I stopped commenting a long time ago because I’ve been very ill. Now I’m much better. But you never know — I might get “sick”. Hard to know right now. Tell you what — I’ll keep reading Idolator for a month or so and let you know.

  • loudersoft

    Also, not Robbie Williams — it’s Robbie “C’est La Vie” Nevil IMO

  • Poubelle

    @TheRunningboard7: An entirely justified bias, though.

  • goldsounds

    I so totally have a frown-y face right now.

  • troybulldogs21
  • Nicolars

    The picture they used is so appropriate.

  • loudersoft

    Not Robbie Williams, imo — Robbie “C’est La Vie” Nevil.

    Because, after all, people are going to be giving you trouble for weeks and…well… that’s just the way it goes… sometimes.

  • allyzay

    I always wondered what would happen if Perez Hilton and a lolcat had a baby! Now I know! I will treasure this day for a while.

  • ObtuseIntolerant

    @Nicolars: That is so, so true. Just trying to keep hope alive. :(

  • Thierry

    @troybulldogs21: Looking at that chartrigger blog just gave me a total frown-y face about the future of Idolator.

  • michaela

    @allyzay: OH SNACK.

  • BangalterEgo

    Buzznet… you better sleep with one eye open.

  • andrew

    as opposed to a happy frown-y face?
