Got what she deserved


Back in the late 2000's and early 2010's she stole lyrics and even fashion ideas and hair styles from several underground artists. Copying them and pretending she came up with these ideas herself. One of them being the Estonian singer ''Kerli'' but there was another woman who really complained about her stealing her ideas too. Contrary to belief Lady Gaga did not write the majority of her music either. Given all of this I could not but feel terribly sorry for these other girls while Gaga kept climbing to the top with their ''look'' they were left in the dust.

It's nice to know in 2018 that she got exactly what she deserved. She has entirely faded from the public concern. She is but a bad memory. Thank goodness.

I know nothing of these allegations, but I have thought it interesting her star burned out so quickly like so many current pop stars (thank God we don't hear much about the android Nicki Minaj anymore). I used to think she had talent at least in creating well-produced dance songs, but I began to lose all interest after the forgettable "Born This Way" album. Now she's forced to sing torch song duets with Tony Bennett for the octogenarian slot-players in Vegas.

Yeah, she was forced to be on an album that debuted at Number One. By the way, Cheek To Cheek is not a torch song. An example of a torch song is Adele’s overproduced and overbearing attempt at an anthem, Hello.

Tony Bennet is class. That's the thing about making it big and being successful, get to pick and choose what you like to focus on, like in Lady Gaga's case. She is talented, no doubt about it, even if changing gears to get her noticed meant using less of her singing abilities.

Ozzy Osbourne expressed concern to her years ago not to oversaturate herself like what happened to him, according to his own words.

She is worth 275 million and will be nominated for an Oscar this year. Are you saying that's what she deserves?

So, this post didn't age well!!

Don't know about some Estonian singer, but her Bad Romance look got me thinking that she was ripping off Dale Bozzio of Missing Persons, a 1980s New Wave Band. (Those were my single, night-club days...)

Apparently I wasn't the only one:

Since she's worked with Tony Bennett, she seems to have adopted a more conventional lounge singer look in her public appearances.
