Lady GaGa caps off an amazing 2009 by hitting the top spot on the Official UK Singles Chart with current single ‘Bad Romance’. Though facing a serious challenge by the force that is Susan Boyle, GaGa boasts the UK best selling album and single of 2009. {Source}

The level of success GaGa has attained in little over a year is next to unheard of in recent music history. Yet I can’t think of any other artist in recent times who deserves it more than the 23 year old superstar. A much needed breath of fresh air to the music industry, GaGa unique brand of…well…everything…really must be giving her industry contemporaries a serious kick up bum to step their own game up lol. Go GaGa!

    AGREED 100 EFFING %!!! 😀

    Excerpts from her Bio:

    Gaga is the girl who at age 4 learned piano by ear. By age 13, she had written her first piano ballad. At 14, she played open mike nights at clubs such as New York’s the Bitter End by night and was teased for her quirky, eccentric style by her Convent of the Sacred Heart School (the Manhattan private school Nicky and Paris Hilton attended) classmates by day. At age 17, she became was one of 20 kids in the world to get early admission to Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Signed by her 20th birthday and writing songs for other artists (such as the Pussycat Dolls, and has been asked to write for a series of Interscope artists) before her debut album was even released, Lady Gaga has earned the right to reach for the sky.

    ____________

    It’s been a while since a new pop artist has made her way in the music industry the old-fashioned/grass roots way by paying her dues with seedy club gigs and self-promotion. This is one rising pop star who hasn’t been plucked from a model casting call, born into a famous family, won a reality TV singing contest, or emerged from a teen cable TV sitcom. “I did this the way you are supposed to. I played every club in New York City and I bombed in every club and then killed it in every club and I found myself as an artist. I learned how to survive as an artist, get real, and how to fail and then figure out who I was as singer and performer. And, I worked hard.”

    The few people in this world who have the audacity to say Lady Gaga has no talent have no idea what they are talking about.

    This just shows the blogger’s age. “A breath of fresh air”… it’s the same noise pollution we’ve been hearing. Case in point: When I first heard “Just Dance” I thought it was a Brooke Hogan song. I mean really, there’s no distinguishing her sound from the other rubbish on the radio, and her antics have all been done before. That’s not to say she isn’t entertaining. It’s just more flash in the pan than anything else, and serious critics (artists) and the like know it.

    Why, when this b**** is mentioned somewhere, does somebody always have to bring Rihanna’s ass into the picture? If Rihanna was so “not on Gaga’s level”, yall wouldn’t even feel the need to mention her name in the first place.

    The fact of the matter is that when the newest “it” singer comes along, their uber stans will always try to compare them with somebody in a similar class of sound and style who’s already established in the business, somebody who’s clearly on a higher level than that new “flavor of the month” singer.

    When Beyonce came out with her solo effort, everybody was saying how she’s better than Janet, and this and that. When Chris Brown entered the scene, yall were comparing him to Usher, talking about how Usher was “played out” and Chris Brown was the new Michael Jackson. When it comes to Madonna, her role as “Queen of Pop” has mysteriously been taken from her and given to the likes of Britney Spears.

    And now it’s the same thing with Gaga and RiRi. I personally see no difference between the two, beside their skin colour. But clearly Gaga’s fans are threatened by Rihanna (at least it looks that way), and thus try to tear one artist down in order to build up another.

    It looks desperate, that’s all I’m trying to say.

    “But clearly Gaga’s fans are threatened by Rihanna” – LOL. That is the most hilarious breakdown in logic I have read from an internet commenter in a while.

  10. AWOLLUVA December 14, 2009

    “Logic” has nothing to do with it, It’s Me Again, especially when were talking about the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga. I’m just saying, when Gaga’s name is automatically tied with Rihanna’s name and vice versa, as if they’re somehow in competition with each other, how can one ‘not’ think the aforementioned’s fans are a little scared?

    I’m not saying this to bash Gaga in favor of Rihanna in any way whatsoever, hell I hate both these b****** equally. But it looks as though Gaga’s fans are going a little stir crazy with the “watch out Rihanna, Gaga’s killin it right now” and “Rihanna could never pull this off” foolishness. If Gaga was truly the artist you all make her out to be and was truly on a level that Rihanna can’t touch, you folks wouldn’t make it a point to even mention the two’s names in the same sentence.

    Something so good is NEVER compared with something so bad. And chances are if the good in question is constantly compared with the bad, the good is not as good as people think. Think about it.

    @AWOL, i see what u mean now. cuz people hype lady gaga up so much like shes god herself, but they tear rihanna down to nothing calling her a model instead of a singer and saying she cant sing or dance. they compare the two all the time tho; which doesnt make sense. i like lady gaga and rihanna and they’re two different artists, but they are also similar in a lot of ways. rihanna has bn in the business now for almost 6 years. shes proven herself as an artist already and has experience in the industry. gaga is still new and still needs a little more time, but she’s getting there real fast and she’ll be at that level soon if she keeps doing what shes doing. ppl need to stop comparing them.

  12. ThatGrapefruitJuice December 14, 2009

    The thing about Lady Gaga and Rihanna is that both these artists are neither great singers nor great dancers. They don’t have the powerhouse vocals like the Mariah Carey’s, Christina Aguilera’s and Beyonce’s of the industry. And they both can’t dance or even touch any type of complex choreography like the Janet Jackson’s, the Britney Spears’ and the Ciara’s. Both these girls are PRIMARILY known for one thing first: their image. Sam and Trent can refer to Rihanna as a model all they want, but as far as I’m concerned, they’re a little too hypocritical if they don’t do the same for Gaga, as both these girls are models first and singers second. That’s a fact, whether people want to admit it or not!

    When I hear folks say Gaga has such an “amazing voice” and she can “dance her ass off”, I’m just like “what, are you kidding me”? Okay the girl can hold a note, sure, and she can dance for somebody whose had practice from a choreographer but obviously hasn’t made dance a part of their life. But other than that, her s*** ain’t nothing to hyperventilate over! So when I see comments on message boards and blogs and I talk to people I know and they all make it seem as though this girl is the greatest thing to happen to music since illegal downloading (for those of us who are poor), it simply baffles me.

    As I said, I’m really not into Lady Gaga at all. But I will always give credit where credit’s due. She’s doing her own thing and making a name for herself and she knows how to get you talking about her, whether you like her or not. The fact that I’m writing god damn essays on this b**** proves that point clearly, lol. And despite my dislike for her, I’m fully willing to admit that the girl is good.

    But she’s not “great”. At all! So quit trying to turn water into wine, and quit cheapening talent by judging it based on who can “dress the weirdest”, folks. Next…

    Ah, I get what you’re trying to say now awol. I’m not one of those who mentioned Rihanna here but I’ll put in my two cents nonetheless…

    The fact that some people like to compare the two does not automatically mean that anyone is “threatened” by anything. It’s absurd the idea that fans of an entertainer would feel “threatened” by another entertainer. What exactly would they be “threatened” by? I, as a Lady Gaga fan, have nothing to lose from Rihanna outperforming Lady Gaga… so I’m not quite getting that idea that i should be threatened by something. Also, even if i did have a personal vested interest in seeing Lady Gaga outperform Rihanna, there is still the obvious and clear gap in the talent levels of the two artists. Look up the songwriting/composing credits, musical background, current album/singles chart positions and the quality of live performances of both, then come and say if you think Lady Gaga should be threatened by Rihanna.

    I get what you are trying to say is if Rihanna’s worth as a songwriter, singer, artist and entertainer is so far below Lady Gaga’s then why the need to put them in the same sentence and category… but they are contemporaries as far as their level of popularity right now, and their “edginess”, so they in fact ARE in a similar category image-wise. I think it’s a fair comparison for the people (presumably teenagers…) who just want to compare superficialities of image and level of fame without looking deeper into their artistry.

    Comment sections on music blogs such as this are all about, discussing, assessing and comparing talent. Don’t read so much into it when people do just that.
