I keep mentioning the ZooTV aesthetic, no the fly in particular. my point is that a female pop star is succeeding by embracing everything that ZooTV stood for (which was mockery, essentially), embracing it, and succeeding wildly with it. i don't think that could've happened on this before.

someone mentioned siouxsiee or something... never heard of them/him/her ... which means they can't have been that big or important. Lady Gaga is a worldwide hit at the moment.

Again, the main point of my thread is that U2 were wildly ahead of their time.

YouTube - Lady GaGa - Paparazzi [Official Music Video]

:ripoff:
I think the whole reason I don't like Paparazzi is because it sounds so much like a Gwen Stefani song to me.

Gah, I love the argument that if "I haven't heard of them they must not be important"

Yeah, me too. You lost me with that, Mr. The One 1932.

The title is a great example of a U2 fan thinking that everything has to relate to U2 somehow.

Anyway, Lady Gaga is pretty good

I love Lady Gaga, and I do see her as a very different type of artist. Not many pop starlets write their own music or got their big break by doing so. Lady Gaga even has her own fashion brainchild, Haus of Gaga, with whom she designs her videos and outfits. I read recently that she often envisions what she'll be wearing during a song as she's writing it.

I think she's really, really talented, and I see a lot of value in writing fantastic pop songs, even though many people think of pop music as a throwaway genre.

it shows that they never reached complete pop culture relevance, something lady gaga has at the moment. If they aren't everywhere, they aren't immensely impacting pop culture.

And i'm not relating everything to U2, it just strikes me as interesting that a pop starlett is succeeding by doing everything that the ZooTV tour stood for. Ironic has become Iconic.

Definitely. Really can't stand that about this place.

I'm in the GaGa lovers boat, too. She's a breath of fresh air in pop music right now. Sorely needed. And she's certainly playing against type. There's no doubt that there is an obvious sexual slant to plenty of her stuff, but I rarely (if ever) feel like she's using sex as a means to sell her product.
