    And its like a few posters above me stated, if this were Rihanna, yall would be screaming “s***” and “Classless.” Hypocrites.

    @Miss Kerry Baby and october beauty, gaga has talent and her albums are selling.Unlike rihanna who had to strip down to get attention.I won’t bash gaga she’s doing great, but I definitely bash rih rih because this is all she has to do to sell her albums and she stiil flop.

    Anyways gaga looks really nice,can’t wait to see the telephone video.

    @Sasan, no dear. That excuse is not going to work, at all. This isn’t about talent, this isn’t about who’s selling albums. This is about the double standard between Rihanna and Lady Gaga, and the way people can so easily classify one as a s***, while the other does the exact same thing and nobody bats an eye, period.

    I think the reason why people pick on Rihanna for posing half-nude is because she actually looks good while doing so. Say what you will about this goat’s lack of talent or album sales, a b**** always gives her all to the camera no matter what she wears. And this is in no way coming from a Rihanna stan.

    Gaga poses nude and all of a sudden we got Beetlejuice without a shirt on. Why would anybody diss her for doing this, it’s not as though she’s offending anybody or making anyone jealous. Something that isn’t worth being hated on usually isn’t, as is the case here. But let’s cut the b*******, you can’t excuse Gaga for posing nude without doing so for Rihanna because she “has more talent” which is based solely on one’s own opinion anyway.

    As far as I’m concerned, none of these skanks have enough talent to back up a nude photo shoot. The difference is one looks good doing it – the other…*side eye*

    Gaga is only 5 foot 1, so she can’t have that much weight on her body. Plus, being in the public eye a lot also requires for her to be on top of her body a little bit more than she’d like to be.

    It’s all about being proportional and healthy.
    Also, I’m actually going to order this and have it shipped to me.
    Then I’m going to frame it. The only reason that Gaga has dominated the pop scene in under 2 years is because she’s unique to everyone, she has catchy music, and she’s basically the new madonna for this generation.

    She broke the mold.
    So she’s being given the attention that she deserves.
    She’s worked so hard for what she’s done for years on end before she finally broke through and became an international icon.

    Her hard work paid off.
    Without Gaga, music would be boring right now.
    You kinda have to admit….

    Rihanna could never do this cause it would make her more contrived than she already is… she’s already a poser and doing things out of character, she doesnt need to do this to make it worse….

    Lady GaGa was never contrived she came out with all her weirdness she didnt change over night into something that she is not… she is what she is…

    @…, the fact of the matter is that they DON’T know whether her weirdness is contrived, plain and simple. Yet when it comes to Rihanna, these people are psychic. Actually though I agree with them on Rihanna so I can’t even front there, but I also think Gaga is just as guilty of putting on a fake ass act. It’s just real foolish when they pull this “Gaga can do it because she’s original” s*** because in my eyes, they’re both not who they really are.

    Look at Gaga back when she first came out. Better yet, take a good look at her BEFORE she became big. Then take a look at her today. These people are seriously trying to convince us that Gaga has always been weird? How she was back in the day is not weird. Different, yes, but not weird. And it’s nothing NEAR the extreme she goes to nowadays to get attention. But they act like her dressing like Kermit the Frog or a Tampon at the Brit Awards is something that she’s ALWAYS done, when looking at her old pics that is clearly not the case.

    Rihanna may be upping the ante by “dressing down” and putting on this “dark” image, but don’t tell me that Gaga isn’t doing the same thing with her overboard costumes and outfits.

    “Without Gaga, music would be boring right now.”

    Why, because nobody else in the business dresses like her? If by “boring” you’re talking “visuals”, you’re still wrong because walking around in eccentric clothing falls under the “fashion” category, not “music”. When it comes to music and the sound of today, that statement doesn’t apply either. Realistically, Gaga sounds like any other electropop artist out today. I mean she’s no groundbreaker when it comes to the next big thing in music. Electropop was here before she came, and it’ll be here when she goes. The only reason why one would say music would be boring without her is because she’s the “flavor of the month” chick right now, plain and simple. She’s the leading force behind the genre right now, but she certainly didn’t invent it. Britney’s “Blackout” was the first real BIG “second coming” of electro, if you wanna get technical. There are many great artists out there who are sustaining the sound of today’s music. Gaga’s sound isn’t significant enough to be held up on a pedestal to where it would be “missed” or to where today’s music would be any more “boring” if she were not around.

    some of you all are full of s*** with that gaga came out like this mess. Gaga is just as manufactured as anyone else, and her whole situation ,get up ,look whatever you call it, is a gimmick. Google stephani germanotta and take a look at what Gaga was before her huge transformation. She was in no way like this, she was a normal average looking white girl with brown hair kinda like alanis morisette. She even had a band the stephanie germanotta band, which didn’t exactly take off. She was even dropped by def jam. She took some time off to still try to make it, then all of a sudden, she transformed her self from stephanie to Gaga, with all the over the top customes and stuff, then everyone bought it hook line and sinker. You guys have been bamboozeled into thinking this is all natural, when in fact its not. Its just a made up persona , a gimmick to sell herself. but you guys are always on rihanna’s back, but at least all she did was change her clothes. Gaga changed her whole look, clothes, and name, plus poses naked, but its all good. I see the double standard.

    I swear to god people be on rihanna clit to damn much.
    lady gaga is naked ok and?
    theres a difference, between being naked all the time and having the talent to back it up.and showing ur azz all the time to sell a record with ZERO SINGING ABILITIES.
    all that s*** aside, theres a man in there. lady gaga is really strong in the face.
    I think shes one of the people who doesnt look good naked at all.
    but she is a bad bish though, all the other singers wants to collaborate with her.

    Let me elaborate a little cos some of you can take things too far…
    obviously i dont know how gaga was before, but she came on the scene one way and didnt change… of course i know there all posing (manufactured) at the end of the day but when you do or introduce yourself as a type of person in the spotlight it will stick with you…

    Rihanna came out with her carribean queen rnb stuff mentioning all these bashment and rnb artsist that she likes… because that wasnt working for her she woke up one day, and says she dark, mysterious, blah blah and she loves rock, kings of leon, and tried her damn hardest to make it believable but it was contrived as things like that dont happen over night if she wanted to make it believable she could of showcased how edgy she was in interviews way back it didnt have to be directly in her music as we all know she had no control of her music… she just jumped on a bandwagon of what was going on.

    I can use PINK as an example to this… while she was doing her rnb stuff in interviews she would say how much she loved three non blondes, linda perry, guns and roses etc, and did say she grew up listening to rock, so by the time she switched over i knew i wasnt contrived it was just a matter of time she got to do what she really wanted to do, and still her image was still edgy and wild and was always a badass.

    Im no rihanna hater but some of you have got to keep it real and know she is contriving herself, whether you like her or not, and i think she’s not bad…

    @ YOUPUTTHELIME–

    This actually doesn’t have anything to do with her fashion sense. I hardly look at it because I’m just used to how she dresses at this point. I said that music would sort of be boring without her right now because that’s just my personal opinion. I listen to a variety of music within the mainstream and outside of it and the only other definite originals to break the mold of the music industry in terms of of course fashion, sound and initiative have been P!nk and RIhanna. Gaga is just next in line. She’s been recognized because regardless of people calling her manufactured, fake, or an attention w****, she keeps going. Not only because she does it for her fans because she’s so thankful to them but also to give the critics a show.

    She doesn’t care what people think. And I’ve also seen her photos from when she was back in high school. I know that she looked pretty normal. But those were only her school pics. Have you seen any of her early performance pictures? They definitely weren’t as grandiose because thats what happens when you try to break into an industry. You can’t act however you want because you’re trying to appeal to a fanbase. Look at her actions and creative choices starting off from her ‘Just Dance’ video. You saw that she was a bit different looking, but nothing too out of the ordinary. As she gained more popularity, that was basically the ‘okay’ for her to branch out into more costume esque outfits because the public wasn’t entirely scared off by it.

    Then in terms of her ‘evolution,’ you people do understand that we’re all human beings. No one ever looks and acts the same over a stretch of years. Gaga’s obviously been changing because she’s discovering herself as she grows older. That can be compared to Madonna, P!nk and Rihanna as well. When they first broke into the music scene, their looks and approaches were radically different when you compare to how they look and sound today.

    When you’re accepted by people then you tend to feel more comfortable with just ‘being’ yourself. When you aren’t comfortable, then you’re much more apt to try to mold yourself into what they want. Hence Gaga and the affrementioned artists’ radical progressions.

    Also, you guys are retarded for bashing her for thinking that she’s suddenly terrible for being topless for a high fashion photoshoot.

    All that is – is just basically her saying that she doesn’t care what people think and she’s finally comfortable with herself and with her sexuality.

    Also..thinking that she’s a man is just speaking out of ignorance.
    Look on gagadaily.com and look for her photos that are zoomed in when she’s squatting down while performing. You can see her clit and her vagina.

    And who cares if she’s strong in the face? A lot of women are in the world. A woman shouldn’t have to have an extremely feminine looking face in order to be considered by a minority of people to actually be a woman.

    by saying shes strong in the face is not bashing her, some people take ish to damn serious, she is strong in the face, still doesnt take away from her real talent.
    because i said she looks like man in the face thats bashing? come on now
    I’m one of gaga’s biggest fan, but i still think shes strong in the face, ..
    just because am a fan doesnt mean am going to like everything bout her.

    Gaga is manufactured….Nothing she does is authentic. She need to give Grace Jones a check for swagger jacking her. Why does white people rip black culture and then act like they invented it? When Gaga attended the Brit Award she was rocking the same outfit Rihanna wore at the Pepsi Superbowl Smash. Rihanna was called ho, ugly etc yet you can see all of Gaga’s goodies in the sheer outfit and no one said s*** about it. Wake up Negroes and realize what is going on. Rihanna came out before Gaga. When she first hit the scene they wanted her to be like Beyonce and she rebelled. Cut her hair and did her own thing. Went Gaga first hit the scene she was not as weird. She became that way over time.

    At least we did not see Rihanna on her patio rocking blocking draws with a tampon string hanging out. Nor does Rihanna use she is bi-sexual or gay to get fame and fortune. That pic on the cover of GQ is tasteless. Why would GQ allow this shim to the be on the cover with a dildo imprint in her pants. Had Rihanna done this she would be called a ho foe days. Like I said previously Willie Lynch Syndrome is still affecting many of you negroes in this country. Remove the chip and get it together.

    we get the fact that you hate lady gaga, all i see are your big essays bashing peoples opinions. the truth is gaga is running things if you like it or not, and for people saying rihanna posed half naked for album sales, sorry i do love rihanna but its true. gaga album covers and single covers are NOT sexual in any way, as people have said these magazine covers are the only time she is half naked, but people appreciate it as its rare she would do something like this. dont bash me, i havent harmed anyone or anything lol.

    Yeah rihanna is manfactured, but not gaga? You guys are the biggest hypocrites there are. And as for Lei, Yeah rihanna came out singing reggae, but that doesn’t mean that that’s who she was. If you can say that you can tell Gaga and Pink is not contrived and pink switched over although she started singing Rand B, to what she naturally loved, which is rock, why can’t the same be said for rihanna. People out side of the Islands like to pigeon hole islanders into this one type of music. Saying if you’re from the islands, you need to sing reggae. Look at the examples in the pop world, Sean Kingston, Jamaican, his music is always reggae tinged, Rihanna, Cardinal official, anytime you have a caribbean background, people automatically think they can stick you with reggae music. People from the islands do have different musical tastes. They listen to all types of music, and love all types of music, so maybe rihanna wanted to do different types of music she loved, but the label stuck her with reggae. WHat is wrong with her doing and experimenting with all the type of music she loves. Oh she can’t because she is black and caribbean, but gaga and Pink get a pass, because they are singing pop, and rock, which suddenly belong to white people. You guys love ass kissing white people too much, and putting your own down. Rock and Roll music was invented by blacks, so if rihanna want to sing rock or pop, she can. Gaga did whatever it took to make it in this industry. Listen to her album red and blue, her sound was nothing like this electro pop thing she is singing now, but you guys say she’s all natural and this is the real her, but rihanna can’t sing nothing else but reggae? You all full of s***, and make up different rules when it comes to rihanna. Everyone else could do it, its okay but not rihanna. Gaga having talent has nothing to do with her baring all. She is doing what many artist are doing now, taking it off, but rihanna is the only one doing it to sell records? But gaga and the others are doing it for art. You see the double standards? Yet failing to realize that rihanna was selling records, won grammys, had 5 #1 hits, and was an international star, way before she took her first topless photo at 21.

    I LOL at the ones thay say Rihanna has to be naked to sell, since she is showing her body, being naked, the Rated R era, she isnt selling that much, but with Girl Gone Bad, she wasnt naked and she went multi-platinum, how can you say she is naked to sell? Stupid f****** morons, think a bit before saying something.
    And yes, just because Gaga is white, no1 says nothing, when Rihanna does it, she is a s*** a b**** a w**** and there are some morons that say that she deserved being beat by Chris Brown just because she is showing her body.
    She was 17 when she began her career, how do you compare when she was a teenager to what she is now, a grown woman? Then you wonder why people think we are the inferior and dumber race…

    Why are you guys throwing race into this?

    The more you drag on your comments saying that “Why white people doing this?” – the more it shows that you’re proving your own points that you bash by ironically throwing your own ignorance into it.

    Its really a shame that my african american community still can’t move forward and continuously sets themselves back by trying to blame everything on people and things that shouldn’t affect them.

    All those talking about how contrived Gaga is they are right just like EVERY OTHER ARTISTS is contrived. But if you look at Gaga’s performance pictures when she was performing as Lady Gaga and Lady Starlight at Lollapalooza you see she was already evolving into the arist that we are seeing. She has had a change since she first came out, first it was Andy Warhol inspired now she looks like some East German fetish girl.

    The difference is a lot of people believe her evolution, she didn’t go from a cleancut chick to what she is now. Honestly everyone mentions Pink, her music changed- her imaging really didn’t… she was a badass when she was singing r’n’b just like she is singing the pop rock she sings now. That’s why they get a pass! Pink and Gaga are always nearly nude and no one really complains because there is no sexuality really attached to it and I think that is how they like it, they don’t sell themselves in a conventional sexy way, they had to create their own lane.

    I’ve always thought it was weird when artists say their label controlled them because I know labels do but how come artists like Alicia Keys don’t complain about that. I think if you come with a really strong vision the label may fight you but maybe compromise is reached but if you come in with NO REAL VISION they will give you an image.

    Gaga looks good in these pictures…she looks softer than normal or during her performances. I really am floored by her seemingly quick ascent to the upper level of music and fashion. I didn’t really see that happening, especially the fashion thing but people like McQueen, Michael Kors and a load of other designers seem to have taken a que from Gaga ( at least that is what ELLE magazine and others are saying). It’s actually fascinating to watch and I’m enjoying what I see. Good job, GaGa!

    I’d say I’m going Gaga over my rattle, but she’s everywhere I turn around and always half undressed, so this isn’t anything new…

    I agree with those seeing this ignorance for what it is. Oh I just love how Gaga’s image is allowed to evolve and considered genuine but Rihanna’s isn’t. This type of thinking is exactly why its so hard for black female artists to do anything other than R&B/ hip-hop, because when they do try to step out of the box and try out different genres, shade is thrown, especially by members of their own race, as evidenced by this thread. Show me a young, black woman that could get signed today with a Gaga style act? This is exactly why Bey keeps putting out the same album. She’s not allowed to evolve. She’s black, so she has to keep booting shaking and singing R&B. Rihanna switched it up and put out her best disc to date. If she’s “suffering” because people are too narrow minded to accept her changing, that’s their problem. Rated R is nearing two million sold in less than six months, so how is she not selling? and that’s not even including her paid single downloads.

    @lawgirl

    aint that the truth. I don’t even have to tell you what the response would have been if Rihanna wore her one legged body suit AFTER Gaga wore hers? Wear’s the shade, indeed? Remember what haters were saying after seeing the 18 second preview clip for Rude Boy and how it was supposed to be Kitty Kat 2.0?

    Look at the caption for Rihanna’s GQ cover post

    http://thatgrapejuice.net/?s=rihanna+GQ

    and scroll up and look at the caption for this one

    The Rihanna one says . . . “Having once again forgotten the whereabouts of her bra and digninty . . .

    The Gaga one says “the saucy shoot which was photographed by . . .”

    Sam, I think this goes without saying, but you’re a racist asshole

    you all are ignorant….i dont think that race has anything to do with it.. i’m all about her exposing her sexuality but still i was not exactly pleased when she started appearing in photos mostly unclothed.when you start with a certain image it happens that ppl expect you to transitionm slowly. i’m not mad at rihanna for trying different things or at gaga… jus look at things from other perspectives. besides i dont think that her trying to switch between genres has anything to do with anything.

    @matt, ms. marie

    Oh, so it’s ok for Sam to s*** shame Rihanna for doing the same thing as Gaga because he likes one artist and not the other? I mean, I too believe that Sam is too stupid to make fun of Rihanna without resorting to sexism and racist tactics, but thanks for proving my point.

    Scrutinizing a black woman for behavior that he excuses when a white woman engages in it isn’t racist? Wasn’t Rihanna nude and covered with silver body paint in the Umbrella video? Wasn’t she in a sheer body suit with live spiders in the disturbia video? Oh, but I thought all this “naked craziness” happend overnight? Do some of you idiots think before typing? The fact that Rihanna didn’t pose topless on a magazine cover before she was 21 is no reason to criticize her and look the other way when Gaga does the same. In case you didn’t know, (because you obviously don’t) that’s racist!

    “@Reasonable Voice, THANK YOU for pointing this out! Two people doing the EXACT same thing, yet only one of them “loses dignity” for it?”

    @limeincoconut

    oh no, it’s different. see, Gaga is wearing pants. Rihanna wore shorts when she posed topless, which was way sluttier (sarcasm). And as you can see, Gaga’s hands are covered, not like that “skank” Rihanna who covered her boobs with bare hands. Rihanna didn’t have the decency to wear gloves, like Gaga. So I can def see how Ri deserved a call out (rolling eyes).

    Please keep schooling these asshats. It’s a wonder that some of them are literate enough to even read your posts in their entirety.

    This post has nothing to do with Rihanna, but yet you find a way to bring her in it anyway. That right there proves how much you’ll are on her clit which is a damn shame. Its not that serious people. They are so eager to defend their “God” that they brought racism in it. Just wow at the fuckery on this post..

    reasonable voice, i just think that you are one of those asshole rihanna stans who just want to make an issue of a non-issue…. the issue was never racism or anything of the sort. the only point that you idiots were discussing was race like if that matters when you seeing a titty or two. what next are you going to say, that the whole janet jackson superbowl thing was rascist too?dumbass,the only point i was trying to make was that it does not matter!! people only fussed off of rihanna being naked because she never appeared on the scene with the propensity to change that suddenly or drastically, the same thing was an issue when britney spears started appearing half naked when she was much younger. i think that stupidity and ignorance is a double edged sword and before you start playing the race card, maybe you should evaluate the situation first. yes there is an uproar when its rihanna vs gaga concerning the nudity that is mostly because gaga is bat s*** crazy and they accept that as part and parcel of her crazy ass demeanor whilst a lot of people find it very odd that after last yr feb and on the journey towards the release of her album she jus suddenly decides to pose topless after explicitly stating in issues that she would not.

    to me it matters not if they decide to be naked, and to normal ppl rihanna being black has little to do with the criticisms levelled at her. i think its sheer stupidity and ignorant ppl who make that an issue. both of their semi nude pictorials were well received for the most part.

    mushylove_1992, i agree wit u and it pisses me off that i had to be one of the idiots to comment on rihanna, i was jus getting tired of the ignorance of ppl playing the race card cuz they’re psycho ass fans or somethin!!!
