Sandra Bullock
Sarah Palin
Lindsey Vonn

Lady Gaga is clearly the most influential individual in the world, she perfectly captures the spirit of the times. Let`s get real, artificiality and pretence permeates our culture, and there is nobody more fake than Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga is a gifted vocalist; she attended the prestigious New York University`s Tisch School of the Arts. Lady Gaga`s voice doesn`t need any digital fine-tuning, yet she distorts her voice with autotune, making herself sound more like a machine than a human being.

The controversial singer is always professing love for her fans, but if Gaga really loved them she would become a trendsetter by lowering her ticket prices.

Lady Gaga dresses like a dyslectic drag queen on crack, there`s nothing real or honest about her theatrical look. If Lady Gaga wore a garbage bag instead of a dress and a diaper on top of her head in lieu of a hat, her fans and music critics would marvel at her eccentric genius.

Lady Gaga`s videos have been viewed over a billion times by people all over the world, and she`s the most downloaded artist of the digital age.

Only President Obama comes close to matching the influence of Lady Gaga, but he doesn`t have a reality show, and he doesn`t have a hit on the billboard charts.

I will join the bandwagon, drink in the spirit of the times, and pretend that I`m enthralled by Lady Gaga. Vote for Lady Gaga!
