Lady Gaga Doesn't Want To Look Like Amy Winehouse

By Robert Paul Reyes


"According to the British tab, the `Poker Face` star recently admitted to dyeing her hair blonde just to avoid people confusing her with the "Rehab" singer. This came to be not because Lady Gaga really thinks they have that much in common to start with, but rather because she noticed journalists and paparazzi had a certain inclination towards believing she was the tattooed, brunette British crooner."

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and when a gifted and innovative entertainer like Madonna comes on the scene everyone copies her style.

It speaks volumes that Lady Gaga is going to extreme lengths to avoid comparisons with Amy Winehouse. Lady Gaga is a rising new talent, and I can understand why she doesn`t want to be confused with train wreck Amy Winehouse.

Amy Winehouse is a supremely talented crooner, and if she wasn`t a crackhead alcoholic dozens of wannabes would be copying her patented beehive do. But nobody wants to be mistaken for a crackhead loser.

Lady Gaga`s diss of Amy Winehouse should serve as a wake-up call. Girlfriend, get your act together before it`s too late!
