Is Lady Gaga The Most Influential Person In The World?
The 2010 TIME 100 Poll
It`s that time again to cast your votes for the most influential person in the world. Time magazine has compiled a list of candidates culled rom the realms of art, music, politics, fashion and sports.
Here are the first ten candidates listed by Time magazine:
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!
