Maddie, please come back to us!


Adele isn't overexposed and if she is then she should be because she's talented enough.


Gaga isn't on any break. She's still rolling full throttle.



One thing I didn't realize was that Gaga was an admirer of Britney. Other then being a piece of ass for a few years, what has she done for music? Besides lip sync every tour of course.

Did anyone notice Britney's reaction when Gaga came out as her alter ego? It looked like Britney didn't even know it was Gaga in disquise.

Adele is talented but I am more convinced than ever that the British media and music industry are manipulating her chart numbers after her sales jumped up yet again the week after dropping out of #1. She does, however, have my love for apparently dissing Chris Brown at the VMAs. Cameras showed her sipping a drink and looking away from the stage while the thug Brown was performing.

Gaga has said that she was a Brit fan when she was younger but Gaga says lots of stuff that she doesn't really mean so who knows? The derogatory comments she has made in the past about lip-syncing blondes seemed to be directed at Spears but, again, who knows?

Spears knew it was Gaga. She just appears to be uncomfortable in any situation where everything isn't completely under her control. I've not followed her career so I have to ask - was she always like that or did she become that way after her breakdown a few years ago? Someone upthread mentioned feeling sorry for Spears because Gaga overshadowed her award presentation but the blame for that falls on MTV. They supposedly knew weeks ago what Gaga was going to do but they still had her present the award. They couldn't care less about Spears (or anyone else). They just wanted a 'moment'.

Here's a pretty hilarious photo recap of the VMAs. MTV Video Music Awards 2011: Desperate Living in Desperate Times (PHOTORECAP!) - News - TV.com

Did anyone watch her Thanksgiving special? I really enjoyed it, and visually it was beautiful. I believe she directed and produced.

Very cool to see her sing Orange Colored Sky. And to see her in the designer outfits with normal makeup, etc.

I've been ready for that a long time. I was so over that jaded, dated, tough leather chick shtick. (In fact I think I said somewhere earlier in this thread about how it was time for her to do something truly shocking and put on a Chanel dress. I guess it was just a matter of time anyway before she went all the way with elegant.)

I enjoyed the performances but fast-forwarded through the rest of it.

I watched Gaga's Thanksgiving show twice (DVR'd it). It was good. Very good. It was nice to see that personal "normal" side of her, seeing her emotional over family and loved the choice of music she performed as well as the couture. I did find it interesting her make up was conservative but she masked her eyebrows which I thought was odd. I'd like to see more celebrity Thanksgiving shows rather than Xmas shows. For a change. I like Gaga.

I read somewhere that she did direct the special and she has also directed the upcoming video for the 'Marry The Night' single. Gaga recently split with her choreographer and creative director Laurieann Gibson and is apparently taking on the creative director role herself. I agree that it was nice to see her dressed a little more conservatively for the holiday special but I don't expect it to last long. She's appearing on the Grammy nomination show this week and I'd be willing to bet she will be back in full on crazy-Gaga mode there.

She recently did some promo appearances in Europe with one of them being at the Bambi awards in Germany. I really like this performance of 'Marry The Night' with just her and her band (no dancers) but it is bizarre seeing this elegant crowd dressed to the nines sitting there like stones while she's performing her heart out. Then when the song is barely over Karl Lagerfield appears to give her an award to very lukewarm applause. It just seemed almost insulting to her. I don't know much about the Bambi awards so maybe that's always the way they are with performers. Anyway, the performance is good. Enjoy!

I was really pleasantly surprised by the special. It was charming and delightfully old-fashioned, like the old holiday specials of yore.

I teared up a bit myself when she talked about her family.

Yeah, I always just listen to the first two tracks of Born This Way, then skip over to Edge of Glory and turn it off.

I should probably just listen to a pop station for 20 minutes.

You talkin bout the song, the video, or both?

Thought that most of the video was pretty brilliant...especially the first 5 minutes or so. And the very end. Her narration is great - equal parts meta/pretentious/funny as hell. The video loses a bit of steam after a while when it becomes just another typical choreographed dance number, but I think it's still easily her best video from this album, and her best video since "Telephone."
