Despite its positive intent, Lady GaGa‘s 2011 effort ‘Born This Way’ wasn’t as well received by some of the singer’s fans as it was from others.
Ironically, though boasting groundbreaking production from Hip Hop producer DJ White Shadow, the LP failed to live up to the response garnered by its older sisters, ‘Fame‘ and ‘The Fame Monster’, billed as ‘overproduced’ and pretentious by British publication NME.
Now peep her speaking on the album during a show in Helsinki last night below…
Hit the 0.49 mark:
With Camp GaGa making a marked effort to soften her brand by the time ‘ARTPOP‘ arrives, we can’t wait to see how the last year has shaped both her ideas on both a thematic and visual tip.
For, whatever one thinks of ‘Born’, there’s no denying the power behind its message or the- and forgive us for this- ‘epic-ness’ of cuts like ‘The Edge Of Glory’, ‘Black Jesus’ and the TGJ favorite ‘Judas‘.
It’s only fault lay in its delivery, too loud and abrasive for any who didn’t consider themselves a ‘Monster’, or didn’t have an existing interest in her work.
Here’s hoping ‘ARTPOP‘ sees her deliver material just as meaningful but in ‘simpler’ and ‘digestible’ packaging.
Packaging, that allows the casual listener to enjoy her music without feeling like they’re being bombarded with mantras left right and centre once unwrapped.
