* Does anyone honestly believe that Gaga's celibate? I dunno, with a decent portion of her songs being about sex, love, and/or relationships, the idea of her being celibate is about as comprehensible as hearing that the VillagePeople are secretly active members of the Westboro Baptist Church.

* Four words. Two sentences. "Self-Esteem." TheOffspring. If you don't find any odd similarities between that & another song...

*** It's also probably that in things like stan wars (fanbases basically shilling their favorite artist while putting down other "competition" artists) it's important to make your artist seem better and it's usually helpful to imply that said artist has more "autonomy" and "authenticity" and that usually ties into old ideas about music that those things make an artist inherently better. Of course this isn't true because artists like BritneySpears (who Gaga fans often put down because of a perceived lack of autonomy partially do to the fact that she doesn't participate in songwriting as much Gaga would claim) play the piano.

*** "Celibate" does not mean "virgin." It can just mean that one isn't in a sexual relationship.

*** I always thought the OK sign thing over her eye was a shout-out to DavidBowie. He used to do a similar thing, except with his hand facing down, and considering how Gaga has borrowed from Bowie before...

*** ''"Conspiracy Theory"'' is an all-purpose shutdown to dismiss any idea of the utilisation of media for underhanded propaganda. She isn't using Illuminati symbolism for provocation: her videos and outfits are WAY too blatant and WAY too heavy on this for it to be only promotional material. Along with Music/JayZ, Music/KanyeWest, Music/{{Rihanna}}, and to a lesser extent Music/{{Kesha}} and Music/KatyPerry, she is among the increasing number of artists that now use Masonic and Illuminati symbolism in their videos, which they didn't do in earlier videos.

* Here's something I don't get. In [[http://www.nme.com/news/lady-gaga/56214 this]] interview she compares herself to [[JohnLennon John]] [[Music/TheBeatles Lennon]], saying she is never happy with her work, even if she calls it a masterpiece. Then she says [[http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1653141/lady-gaga-born-this-way-will-be-greatest-album-this-decade.jhtml here]] that her album is going to be the greatest of the decade. If the former is true, how can she have the balls to say the latter?
** Some days she feels like [[{{Oasis}} Noel Gallagher]]? Noel goes around all the time blowing his own horn and then unloads mountains of vitriol on ''Be Here Now''...

Added DiffLines:

** She generally seems more involved in her music and image than most pop stars, as well.


Added DiffLines:

** Gaga is supposedly allergic to cherries, so cherry pie would be toxic to her.


Added DiffLines:

** Many of her jokes get taken too seriously (i.e. claiming that her perfume would have blood and semen in it). Calling Born This Way the album of the decade might have been a joke.


Added DiffLines:

** Given that she was raped by a record producer at 19, she could have genuinely been celibate when she claimed to be. She certainly isn't anymore.
