It's All About The Fame For Lady Gaga
"Lady Gaga would `die` if she wasn`t famous.
The `Poker Face` singer - who is well known for her eccentric clothing and party lifestyle - can`t stand the thought of life away from the public eye and wouldn`t be able to cope with normal life.
She said: `There are times when it can be a lot to deal with but always when I get up in the morning I try to find that very joyful place that reminds me that I would die if someone took it all away. If someone did that I wouldn`t be a person any more.`" http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/showbiz/2009-05/24/content_7936784.htm
Lady Gaga, as anyone who isn`t living in a cave knows, is a performance artist, singer-songwriter, dancer and musician. Lady Gaga attended the same high school as Paris and Nicky Hilton, but unlike those bimbos she has genuine talent.
According to Wikipedia Lady Gaga "honed her writing skills by composing essays and analytical papers focusing on topics such as art, religion and socio-political order." Paris hones her writing skills by tweeting on Twitter such dribble as: OMG! I forgot to take off my panties b4 dancing on top of da table at da club last night!
Lady Gaga may be talented, intelligent and driven, but the bottom line is that she is not much different from Hilton, Lohan, Kardashian, and Spears. Lady Gaga isn`t obsessed with releasing good music, but with fame. Her smash debut album is appropriately named, "The Fame."
The giants of pop culture produce great works of art because it`s what gives meaning to their lives, and they aren`t overly concerned with achieving fame. Bob Dylan went electric cognizant that it would alienate his fan base -- he was seeking to experiment and grow as an artist, not to please people.
Lady Gaga, despite her incredible talent, may be just a flash in the pan. If Lady Gaga cares more about fame than creating works of art that will stand the test of time, in a couple of years the fickle public may forget about her.
