Lady Gaga Is The Voice Of A Generation

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Despite Lady Gaga`s pervasive presence in pop culture and her current ubiquitous notoriety within the tabloid press, the music she produces is fast, disposable, and - regardless of millions of worldwide sales - doesn`t, in my opinion, have a true meaning or message, let alone convey the cultural voice of our generation."


Claudia Moross

Moross is spot on in her assessment of Lady Gaga, the pop tart is disposable as a personality and as an artist.

Lady Gaga is like a cheap bubblegum that you buy out of a machine for a dime, you might get a few seconds of intense chewing pleasure before you spit it out in the gutter.

Lady Gaga`s music is tailor-made for the club, you might think her songs really rock while you are dancing your butt off, but when the alcohol and the ecstasy wears off, you won`t remember any of the lyrics.

Lady Gaga hasn`t invented or refined a genre of music, and she`s not the leader of a social movement. Gaga has glomed onto gay rights in a desperate and cynical attempt to achieve legitimacy. Gaga manipulates her army of gay monsters into buying multiple copies of the same album.

Lady Gaga`s won`t be remembered for her songs, but for her s[e]x-saturated videos. The shameless hussy elevates s[e]x, controversy and publicity stunts above musical integrity.

Bob Dylan was the voice of his generation, he captured the struggle for peace and human rights in his poetic lyrics, and in his rough-hewn voice. In a damning indictment of our society, I must confess that Lady Gaga is the voice of her generation. The pop princess captures the emptiness of a generation where everyone speaks with an ironic voice, and nobody cares about anything but getting high and listening to mindless over-produced drivel.
