Congrats, Lady GaGa: You’re More Annoying Than Katy Perry Now
I assumed that Katy Perry would hold onto the top spot of the music-related portion of my Extreme Dislike List well into 2009 (for now, I’m still giving Chris Brown the right to be presumed innocent). Byt somehow Lady GaGa got the impression that a No. 1 hit gave her the right to have outlandish, ridiculous opinions, and that she was entitled to share them with the public.
In a way, I have to thank Whitney Pastorek. Her Entertainment Weekly article (and “outtakes” on the mag’s Web site) have exposed GaGa for the ridiculous loudmouth that she is. When she disappears from public consciousness in a year or so, we can all look back and laugh. “Remember her? The one who seemed to hate pants? She thought she was a groundbreaking artist.”
”I think it’s great to be a sexy, beautiful woman who can f—- her man after she makes him dinner,” she says. ”There’s a stigma around feminism that’s a little bit man-hating. And I don’t promote hatred, ever. That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate women who feel that way. I’ve got a lot of gay women friends that are like, ‘Put your clothes on.’ People just have different views about it. I’m not wrong. I’m free. And if it’s wrong to be free, then I don’t want to be right. Things are changing. We’ve got a black president, people.”
“Being a woman in the pop world, sexuality is half poison and half liberation. What’s the line? I don’t have a line. I am the most sexually free woman on the planet, and I genuinely am empowered from a very honest place by my sexuality. What’s more primal than sex? I mean, it’s so honest. If I didn’t think I had the talent to back that up, I wouldn’t have done it.”
On success or something:
“I’m of course very confident in the way that I got here, and I feel that it prepared me, and at six o’ clock in the morning on my 23rd hour on a video set, I dig way down into my soul and I find that place where I was born to be an artist, and it carries me through. I am everything about what I do. Every marrow in my bones and blood is for this work. GaGa is the greatest creative journey of my life.”
This is Perez Hilton’s fault somehow, isn’t it?
