Lady Gaga Breaks Down On Stage
"Lady Gaga is not known to be a cry baby, but the controversial singer could not hold back her tears at an award ceremony where she received a trophy for selling 8 million records worldwide.
Decked in another dazzlingly weird outfit, the eccentric singer spilled her emotions after receiving the commemorative plaque at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles during the last of her three sold out performances, reported Daily Mail online." Read More
I`ve seen singers shed a tear when they make an emotional connection with an audience, or when a fellow entertainer makes a surprise appearance and joins them on stage.
But Lady Gaga broke down like a schoolgirl whose Barbie doll has been snatched away by the principal, when she was notified that her album "The Fame" has sold 8 million copies worldwide.
With Lady Gaga it`s all about The Fame, she doesn`t care about artistic achievement, but about moving product. If achieving fame means she has to dress like a drag queen on crack, then so be it, anything to extend those fifteen minutes of fame.
If Lady Gaga relied simply on the power of her vocal chords, and eschewed the campiness and silliness she could move her audience to tears. Lady Gaga is a very talented singer, and she doesn`t have to make an ass of herself to succeed. How sad that Lady Gaga has become a pathetic caricature of herself.
