Lady GaGa: “I Have One Of The Greatest Voices In The Industry”

Published: Thursday 10th Feb 2011 by Trent

It seems that success finally gone to Lady GaGa’s head. In her recent interview with Vogue magazine, the singer boldly declared that she has “one of the greatest voices in the industry” and that she is “one of the greatest songwriters” in the game today.

However, GaGa didn’t stop there. While continuing to boast about her own talents, she went even further by slamming her fellow performers who choose to lip-sync on stage. Look below for all the details:

“Speaking purely from a musical standpoint, I think I am a great performer. I am a talented entertainer,” the singer tells the March issue of Vogue magazine. “I consider myself to have one of the greatest voices in the industry. I consider myself to be one of the greatest songwriters. I wouldn’t say that I am one of the greatest dancers, but I am really quite good at what I do.”

“It’s so funny when people say, ‘It’s amazing to see how hard you work.’ We’re supposed to work hard!” she says. “I have the world at my fingertips. I am not going to saunter around the stage doing pelvic thrusts and lip-synching. That’s not at all why I am in this.”

“Nothing has changed since I have become a star,” she says. “I am a real family girl. When it comes to love and loyalty, I am very old-fashioned. And I am quite down-to-earth for such an eccentric person.” {Source}

This is yet another example of how artists cross the thin line between being confident in their abilities and being blatantly arrogant. Although GaGa is certainly a competent performer, singer and songwriter, she has gone far beyond herself in thinking that she is one of the best in the industry.

There are several vocalists in the game today – Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Brandy and Jill Scott – who could easily outsing GaGa on any stage (even on their worst days). Furthermore, given the tendency of her lyrics to be perceived as shallow and sometimes quite confusing, her songwriting skills are hardly poetic – “walk, walk fashion baby. Work it, move that bitch c-razy”.

Regarding GaGa’s comments toward lip-syncing and pelvic thrusting, it is rather amusing that she would highlight those points, especially since the most renowned such offender in Pop music today (Britney Spears) was praising her just earlier today. Hilarious.

Thoughts?

  4. MJSTAN February 10, 2011

    I REALLY WANT TO KNOW IF GAGA WILL STILL BE HUGE IN 2020. LIKE SERIOUSLY, WHO IS SHE TO BRAG??? SHE IS JUST A TEMPORAL PHENOMENON

    • mashi May 29, 2013

      actually i think she’ll be a legend. she’s like the most talented person you’ll ever find in the pop industry. she can surely sing very well even while dancing and is a piano prodigy, but even more importantly, she’s the most creatively talented woman in the world. what other artist writes all their songs which keep topping charts, designs their outfits, comes up with their music video concepts, etc. and is actually talented at all that. there’s no doubt that gaga’s outfits, videos, and every aspect of her visual art is out of the ordinary, and she can get a whole lot of credit solely for all that.

    • Fil February 7, 2016

      Still waiting honey?

  5. Chimier February 10, 2011

    LOL. In 1992, Whitney Houston says “I never considered myself having a great voice”. Fast-forward almost 20 years later and Lady Gaga is saying that she has one of the greatest voices in the industry. How times have changed.

    • Get a Grip October 29, 2017

      The sad thing is that she probably does have one of the better voices in the pop music industry today. But that only serves to show how far the pop music industry has fallen.

  6. Shouw February 10, 2011

    Well she can sing for sure ! (when sing song like brown eyes or when she sung with bruce springsteen) but she’s not one of the greatest voices in the industry ! Sorry Gaga, still love you tho

  7. Andrew February 10, 2011

    I love Gaga but that was a lil much :/

  8. Spunkypoop February 10, 2011

    YES SHE DOES!!!! YALL KNOW THA TRUTH! (in my JANET VOICE)

  9. lmao February 10, 2011

    I SEE GAGA HAS STOLEN THAT LIKE RUSSIAN SWAGG LOOK NOW.. AND IS OFF TO SELL IT AS HER OWN IN THE US.. SMH

  10. KYLE February 10, 2011

    PUKE…AT LEAST BRITNEY IS SWEET AND HUMBLE. THE FAME HAS REALLY GOTTEN TO GAGAS HEAD, SO SAD.

  11. Beyonslay February 10, 2011

    THIS B**** NEEDS TO TAKE A F****** SEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! F*** OFF H**, YOU WASTE OF SPACE! OVERRATED IS NOT THE WORD TO DESCRIBE THIS B****! HATE HER! AND I’M NOT EVEN A BRITNEY FAN, I JUST HER THIS WHORES F****** ARROGANCE!! I HOPE HER NEW SINGLE FLOPS WITH HER SHITTY LYRICS AND AGAIN OVERRATED CREATIVITY!ARGHJHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I’M PISSED OFF.

  12. Nichole February 10, 2011

    I don’t see GaGa having a long lasting career.

    These artists should watch, and learn from Christina. Arrogance+trash talk+lack of being humble=FAIL.

    GaGa is just begging for a backlash, and not even Madonna was this arrogant.

  13. flawda February 10, 2011

    Shots fired at Britney Spears. lol

    Lady Gaga is overhyped though, she ain’t nothing but a freak show and a Madonna/Grace Jones knock off. When what you wear is a bigger topic than your talent, that shows your a gimmick and only a matter of time before fans move on to the next gimmick. These artist are flavor of the month for the most part, anyone remembers Backstreet Boys, Nsync, etc, me neither.

    The test for Lady Gaga will be when the audience taste in music changes (witch it will), can she maintain footing or get washed out.

  14. carl February 10, 2011

    Beyonce… tell your friend to stfu!!!

  15. gio88 February 10, 2011

    if she think so….vocally a lot of artist are better then her , and also as songwriter ….yes she write hher own songs ….like many others artists, and then i would see so much talent in writing lyrics like “rarararara roma roma roma gaga ulla” or others….

  16. Hudson Morrigan February 10, 2011

    Well excuse me but Gaga does in fact sing well, besides Beyonce and Kelly what other young female has vocals right now? Certainly not Straintina Offkeylera, and much less Britney or Rihanna.

  17. CHAUD February 10, 2011

    Believe in yourself before making people believe in you…

  18. FUCKLADYGAGA February 10, 2011

    YOU SEE, THIS S*** WENT TO HER HEADD…DEFF LOST MAJOR POINTS FROM ME AND I DIDNT LIKE HER THAT MUCH TO BEGIN WITH….SHE’S A C*** THAT MAKES GENERIC MUSIC …LOSE THE EGO TRANNY!

  19. brown boy February 10, 2011

    LOL at New york

  20. Nana February 10, 2011

    At least she better than Ciara and Britney

  21. Badd February 10, 2011

    There’s nothing wrong with being confident & praising yourself.
    Considering what is out NOW she does have one of the best voices.
    I mean if they don’t lipsync they sound horrible like Katy & Rihanna.
    and she’s right she doesn’t need to just sing horribly & do some
    random plevic thrusts while wearing nothing (rihanna) to be noticed.

    Trent this is just another one of your s*** starter moves.
    Nowhere in this did she talk about Britney…she LOVES & praises Britney.
    if anything she was talking about Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, & Nicki Minaj.
    The foursome of no talent and they all descibe what she’s talking about.
    Though Britney lipsyncs, she dances none of which those ppl do.

  22. itsbkinthemix February 10, 2011

    Well I guess considering today’s music world is so soaked with autotune and other crap like that she really is one of the only ones with a voice.

  23. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    WTF noooooooo GAGA NOW your ass has certainly CROSSED the muthafuckig line if you thinking your competition with the VOCAL LEGENDS, you deserve to be PUNCHED in the NUTS, if you think you tand a chance with BEYONCE, WHITNEY, MARIAH, PATTI LABELLED the list goes on, you talking to much GAGA #fallback Lmaoooooo #HurricaneBEY plazzzzz hurry up and RELEASE somethig cuz these b****** get a Lil to COCKY lately!!!

  26. Kevin February 10, 2011

    i love gaga. i do.

    but

    NO. her voice is above average but NOT all that.

  27. Badd February 10, 2011

    & she didn’t try to compare herself to Mariah & Whitney.
    they’re not in the industry anymore…& after Xtina’s belting
    & murder of the national anthem…she needs not be mentioned.
    & her song writing skills are AMAZING. just because you simple
    ass can’t get what she is saying doesn mean you have to criticize.
    She wrote some of Britney’s most critically acclaimed songs
    on the Circus….& all of her demos & things from Red & Blue & Words.
    are amazing…hell the entire Fame Monster is amazing.
    So Trent you need to shut your s*** up…your b******* has been dismissed.

    OK Gaga I see you got a little Kanye in you now. COCKY MUCH, If Bey and Gaga would have perform Telephone live she wouldn’t be able to keep up with Ms. Sasha Fierce. Her voice is decent but not one of the best hell Fantasia would sing her under the table

  36. MUZICWHIZ February 10, 2011

    SHE CAN BE COCKY ALL SHE WANTS .. BECAUSE SHE IS THE QUEEN OF CURRENT POP DANCE …. SHE BROUGHT IT BACK TO LIFE !!!!

  37. Huh? February 10, 2011

    This H** is SICK. I can Name atleast 10 Young Female Artists Who are MILES AHEAD of her. In no particular Order.
    1. Beyonce
    2. Leona Lewis
    3. Jennifer Hudson
    4. Christina Aguilera
    5. Kelly Clarkson
    6. Jojo
    7. Adele
    8. Carrie Underwood
    9. Alicia Keys
    10. Hayley Williams…….
    The list can Continue. B**** Needs To TAKE A DAMN SEAT

  38. Time To Shine February 10, 2011

    SHE RIGHT ! SHE DIDNT SAID SHE HAS THE GREATEST VOICE! SHE SAID ONE KEY WORD ONE OF THE BEST VOICE IN THE INDUSTRY!

    JILL SCOTT ?? TRENT WHAT CAREER WHO IS SHE ? WHATS CAREER HAS SHE ? BRANDY/CHRISTINA AND MARIAH ARE NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE.

    GAGA >>>> RIHANNA/C-ERROR/SCARY HILSON/S******/SCREAM TINA / AND ALL THOSE IRRELEVANT GOSPEL BLACK SINGERS !

  39. jeremydante February 10, 2011

    this b**** needs to take a seat because she ain’t fuckn with nothing mariah has done & certainly not beyonce! s*** like this is exactly why i unfollowed her ass on twitter.

  40. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    @ MUSICWHIZ, did you hear anything about QUEEN BEYONCE??? And I can’t wait to hear GAGA song is it UPTEMPO or SOUL??? Also she really getting out hand with being so confident in VOCALS!! I have to see some performances smh

  41. MISHKA February 10, 2011

    Kanye once said he is so good he wished he could sit in the audience and watch how great of a performer he is. And people called him crazy.

    I guess at one point, a lot of great artists go through that phase. They become larger than life for the sake of art.

    By the way, she’s right. LypsYncing is cheating. If I’m an accountant, I have to post expenses. If you’re a singer, you have to sing. I’m growing tired of Britney, Bieber and others who make people pay big money to see their muppet skills .

    Black celebs always state they have to work three times harder than white people. Gaga could have taken the easy way, give her 40% on stage and watch her money pile up but she is committed to her art and I respect that.

    Born this way, baby !

  42. NattyHeron February 10, 2011

    Honestly Lady Gaga is mediocre at best. She has done nothing new in the industry but blatantly decide to celebrate halloween 365 days of the year. While she has catchy songs and a decent voice, she is nothing new IMO and she certainly has no reason to think she has made a lasting impact in the industry when she has only been in the game for a couple of years. I am going to need her to #fallback and pay respect to the artist before her who are still in the game impacting the industry as song-writers, singers, producers, performers etc etc and get off her own jock. it is not very becoming.

  43. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    @ Time to Shine, you must came CORRECT cuz I see ya ass ain’t put LOUD MOUTH JENNIFER HUDSON in there Lmaoooooo

  44. pez February 10, 2011

    riiiiiiiight.

    Because lyrics like “gaga ooh lala, eh eh eh, po-po-poker face, ra ra ra” are those of a lyrical genius.

  45. Leo February 10, 2011

    nice PROMOTION, Gaga! people lick you.

  46. Simhanna February 10, 2011

    WHY IS SHE LIKE THIS? WHY?
    SERIOUSLY, I TRY TO LIKE HER BUT SHE IS SO ARROGANT, IT PUTS ME OFF!

  47. AuntieJackie February 10, 2011

    I don’t see what she said as bad. She said: “I am not going to saunter around the stage doing pelvic thrusts and lip-synching. That’s not at all why I am in this.” That was directed at any one in particular, but she knows that Britney can dance her ass off and entertain so she wasn’t coming at her. The lazy-b**** pelvic thrust award of the year would go to Rihanna and Company. Brit-Brit isn’t a strong singer, but she lip synchs so she can dance harder. EVEN MJ would do that, but obviously he can sing and he’s the King so he gets a pass. Britney is a different type of performer, and GAGA was shading LAZY ass heifers.

    Nice try That Grape Juice…trying to start a deliberate f****** stan war.

  48. MUZICWHIZ February 10, 2011

    @SPEAKS .. THE ALBUM IS SICK SICK SICK SICK .. ITS SO GOOD … U GONNA LOVE EVERY SONG WAY MORE THAN BORN THIS WAY …. BORN THIS WAY IS GOOD .. BUT THE ALBUM IS BETTER … JUDAS IS AMAZING !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    @ MISKHA, I agree I THINK 2011 should be all about TALENT, we got JENNIFER HUDSON, BEYONCE, CHRIS BROWN, CIARA (who’s been performing live goals live for basic instinct) USHER, LADY GAGA BRITTNEY, CHRISTINA, come on now these are somewhat VETERANS Plaz BRInG the TALENT it’s 2011!!!!

  50. Manny Reid February 10, 2011

    Someone please fire Trent. Thanks. *walks off*

  51. FOX February 10, 2011

    I wouldn’t say she crossed the line…but c’mon b**** you KNOW your voice is only AVERAGE. LOL

    DELUSIONAL.

  52. Reasonable Voice February 10, 2011

    And this is exactly why I the feel the way I do about her. When have you ever heard Beyonce or Whitney Houston say “I have one of the best voices in the industry”? Gaga’s fans, the mainstream media, and the people around her have fooled her into thinking she’s unstoppable, can get away anything, and only get bitter (see: ‘Telephone’ and ‘Alejandro’ videos) She’s in for a rude awakening for Born This Way era. This could turn out to be Bionic part two.

  53. Honey Bey my love February 10, 2011

    I use to like this tranny but not anymore im so pissed of shes so freaking cocky now im going with britney im even buying her album gaga get on my last nerve shes so freaking ugly and overrated i hope Britney slay this tranny

  56. MUZICWHIZ February 10, 2011

    HATE ON GAGA ALL YOU WANT .. SHE IS THE CURRENT # 1 ARTIST WORLDWIDE

  57. Badd February 10, 2011

    @ Speaks Truth:
    you just listed a bunch or r&b not pop artist.
    who are hardly relevant to regular ppl…so i doubt
    GaGa was talking or cared about them.
    They’re not even in the limelight of the music industry.

  58. MUZICWHIZ February 10, 2011

    GAGA FIRST 6 SONGS HIT # 1 IN AIRPLAY AND ALL 6 HIT THE HOT 100 ….. ALL HER 7 SINGLES HIT TOP 10 SO FAR . SHE HAS A GREAT RECORD SO FAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. HLOVE February 10, 2011

    GAGA should listen to ADELE new album 21.
    ADELE has one of the greatest voices in the industry today……… not GAGA………

  60. Badd February 10, 2011

    @speaks truth:
    gtfo off this GaGa thread Gaga has talent…talent that she has proven
    again and again…with each song she writes & each performance she gives.
    she’s already shown that through all of her mixtapes and demos.

  61. jeremydante February 10, 2011

    im back; wanted to add to what i said earlier. i know gaga ain’t tryna come for the queen & i do mean britney. britney’s “baby one more time” LP sold 13 million in the US alone- the fame debuted at number-f****** 7 on billboard & the fame monster sold 4 mil. how the f*** are you the greatest when you haven’t even sold half of what britney did on your first fuckn album? i won’t even go into chart tallys against gaga with mariah- gaga needs to stop.

  62. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    @ MUSICWHIZ, good I’m very interested and I just WATCH her perform think it’s “SpEECHLESS” and she DOES have a POINT if shes talking about the NEW GENRATION becuz I HATE the lip-singing s*** that’s why I love BEYONCE, but BORN THIS WAY I know she’s going BRING it cuz she not like some ARTIST who are LAZY and need some one to PUSH them every STEP but I can’t wait this will be my first time giving this type of POP a chance and I think I PICKED the RIGHT artist cuz I need someone who’s going BRING it and can BACK every crazy BOLD/COCKY comment she makes and ONE of those ARTIST is GAGA I have to admit!!!

  63. Laurie February 10, 2011

    I think this girl is good in some points but she’s not going to have a long career to me she’s like a phenomenon that goes away as quickly as it has come ! Don’t get me wrong she is quite a good performer you can enjoy phenomenon like her but it’s not going to last. She’s missing some real material for long lasting career. The thing that I really appreciate about her is that she sings live pretty good and gives you 100% of her while performing !

    So all I want to say is thank you Gaga for having entertain the world for few months it was cool but don’t start being arrogant as you career has no garantee to last

  64. KAT DELUNA FAN February 10, 2011

    THE MALE AND FEMALE HORMONES IN HER HERMAPHRODIT BODY ARE TAKING OVER HER BRAIN.

    LOL,THIS JUST LIKE THE QUOTE: LOUD IS THE NEW THRILLER.REALLY B*TCH ????

  65. Tru Voice February 10, 2011

    I see yoy threw Marah’s name i ther AS USUAL!!!! lol But Mariah’s PRE RECOREDED tracks can outsing Lady Gaga.

  66. Ayo_ronnie February 10, 2011

    Gaga girls u need to slow ithe the fucki down. Your vocals are not spectacular.

  67. KAT DELUNA FAN February 10, 2011

    @AUNTIEJACKIE
    mmm WHAT IF BEYONCE COMES AND SAYS:I CONSIDER MYSELF AS THE DEFINITION OF GREATNESS ?

    IT WILL BE JUST WRONG,LET OTHERS (NICKI MINAJ IN THIS CASE) COMPLIMENT YOU.THIS IS NOT CONFIDENT,I CALL IT ARROGANCE. !!!

  68. MUZICWHIZ February 10, 2011

    @ HILOVE ………. I SO AGREE WITH U .. ADELE IS THE BEST VOICE OF THIS GENERATION .. HANDS DOWN !!!!!!!

  69. Gussy February 10, 2011

    Umm sorry Trent but I’m pretty sure Beyonce is the only one you listed who is actually currently in “the game.” And really? She has gone far beyond herself thinking that she is one of the best in the industry? If you think that, then maybe you shouldn’t praise her so much, this article just makes you seem like a hypocrite. And just because she said she didn’t want to lip-sync and saunter around stage doesn’t mean she was referring to Britney–who you JUST made a stab at in a post today. Using that line for the title and leaving out the part where she says that “it’s good be to confident in yourself” really shows (to me at least) that you are reeeallly reaching for stories when you write for this desperate site. What i’m trying to say is that this is being really sensationalized and it seems pretty unfair.

  70. Time To Shine February 10, 2011

    @SPEAKS TRUTH

    I LOVE DIVAS WITH STRONG VOICE ( J HUDSON/BEYONCE/CHRISTINA EVEN IF I SHADE /BARBRA OR MARIAH ETC)

    BUT YOU CAN DENY THAT LADY GAGA HAS A GREAT ROCKNROLL VOICE. SO SHE HAS A POINT. EVEN WITH DANCE LIKE BAD ROMANCE YOU CAN SEE IT.

    AT GO CHECK HER YOU AND I PERFORMANCE FOR THE TODAY SHOW TELL ME SHE DOESNT HAVE A GREAT VOICE! I KNOW SHE’S ARROGANT IM THE FIRST TO ADMIT IT.

    YOU CANT COMPARE PRINCE OR FREDDY MERCURY VOICES WITH OPERA MALE SINGERS BUT THAT DOESNT MEAN OPERA SINGERS HAVE BETTER VOICES THAN PRINCE OR FREDDY !

    SO I AGREE WITH HER. SHE HAS ONE OF THE GREATEST VOICE IN THE INDUSTRY !

  71. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    @ BAD, well you list BLACK GIRLS who sing CHURCH so you ALL INVoLVED them I just followed up and PLAZ I’m being NICE today don’t feel like ARGUING I want everyone AlBUM to speak for ITSELF #notinthemood

  72. MUZICWHIZ February 10, 2011

    GAGA VOICE AINT SPECTACULAR NONE OF HER FANS ARE STATING THAT .. BUT SHE DOES HAVE A VOICE AND SHE CAN SING … WHICH MAKES HER MORE INTERESTING…

  73. the kiddz February 10, 2011

    How does that one quote go, Pride cometh before the fall? She needs to keep it cute and humble. She already has people breathing down her neck for her overzealous claims for BTW.

  74. Badd February 10, 2011

    @jeremydante:
    you can’t compare the music industry of the 90’s & early 2000’s
    to that of today….that it just foolish & ignorant….as is your comment.
    I mean look the lastest #1 album only sold 40K this week.
    & this has been a trend for a while now.
    If you want to compare albums you should compare Circus to The Fame
    since they both came out in 2008….you can’t compare something
    that came out in 1998 & 1999 to something that came out in 2008.

    writing all these damn hate paragraphs.

  77. Ariana February 10, 2011

    Seriously?
    Can’t believe this is Gaga speaking. Deluded much? The girl is talented but her voice is barely average and her lyrics are just okay — was she being serious?
    It is cool being confident, but she seems to be praising herself way too much. Relax girl, if after 10 years you have sold at least 100 million albums worldwide and your records are still hot on the charts you can come to me with such argument.
    Can’t believe she actually said that…. smh

  78. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    @ TIME to SHINE, I agree sense I just watch the performance of “Speechless” and she is absolutely CORRECT if she’s talking about the folks in the NEW GENRATION I certainly AGREE!!!

  79. Badd February 10, 2011

    It’s clear that she’s talking about this generation of music.
    & since she is everything that she’s said has been true.
    None of Trent’s ppl besides Beyonce (whom she’s friends with)
    are even in the music industry anymore….& none of the other
    ppl listed are even relevant enough to GaGa for her to be
    comparing herself to them .

  80. i’m a s&m lovin’ billy goat….baa, spank me hard! February 10, 2011

    Hummm *—-*

    I’m gonna have to give her the side-eye for that comment. I think that she does outshine her peers/competitors i.e. can’t sing Ke$ha, Naked Perry, Raggedy rihANNa etc. but I would hardly say she has one of the best voices in the industry…..LOL! Does she do drugs???

  81. Simhanna February 10, 2011

    SHE REALLY DOES BELIEVE SHE IS A LEGEND ALREADY, SLOW DOWN
    SHES GOOD BUT I CAN NAME MANY SINGERS WHO CAN OUTSING HER
    GAGA STANS DONT EVEN COME FOR ME, HAVEN’T GOT TIME FOR YOU LIL MONSTERS, JUST SHARING MY OPINION

  82. flawda February 10, 2011

    LOL at her song writing skillz being amazing, please she is making pop ditties. Lets not act like she is the second coming of John Lenon, Babyface, Dallas Austin,etc because i’m sure no one will remember her disposable music in 10 years.

    She’s not saying she’s the best. But ONE of the best. And yes, they are many talented singer, sportswriters, that’s why ‘one of the best’. Here, she’s not saying: I’m best the best. F*** the world. At least, it’s not false modesty. But she never said something wrong about another artist, or compare herself to others.

    U should read the whole interview, when she talks about people she loves.

    So yes, she loves what she does, and thinks it’s good. But her success is a proof that she’s kinda right.

    okay i like gaga, but she is still new, she is speaking as if she has been in the game as long as britney, she aint that good at song writing or singing, i mean she is good, but not ‘the best in the industry’ as trent highlighted correctly

  111. Badd February 10, 2011

    @ Kat Deluna Fan
    look at some of her performances, live performanes.

    but that still doesn’t mean I can’t hate her LOL

  120. JohnVidal February 10, 2011

    people relax! She says those things to create controversy and buzz just like Madonna did during all her career. It´s nothing new. It´s no big deal. I just want to hear the song and the album.
    The problem is when people take those things too seriously. She has a good voice, speciallycompared to nowadyas untalented puppets and obviouly she can´t touch any vocal legend. Come on I don´t think she was meaning she has a voice like Mariah Carey. She just said what she said talking about the most current artists with a little bit of arrogancy.
    And as an artist overall, not only voice I truly think she is one of the greatest right now. No Prince or MJ or Carey (at least for now) but definetely better than Rihanna, Beyonce (yes I said it, as an artist yes), Britney, Xtina, etc. We´ll have to hear her future music anyway, it´s too soon

  121. Camille February 10, 2011

    I’m not blind. I’m a fan, but I’m not delusional. Yes here she clearly said she loved her way to be an artist, and she’s confident, too confident or not. It doesn’t matter.

    Gaga talked about it because of the stereotypes of female popstars of the new generation. Who are not taken seriously because some of them can’t sing, or don’t play an instrument, or don’t have a real artistic sense. In the beginning of her career, she was NOT taken seriously at all. That’s why she’s talking about it now. For people she’s a celebrity. But she considers herself as an good artist. and technically she’s right.

    Britney, Maria, Chistina, nobody is target in this article. She doesn’t even quote their names. It’s a global situation, how the new generation of artists is evolving.

  122. LAMB 4 LIFE February 10, 2011

    1. Queen Beyonce

    3.Mariah Carey

    4.Jennifer Hudson

    Bonus Lady Gaga
    I never really thought about Gaga being 1 of the best singers but hmmm….. she does have a strong singing voice but she should let her fans be the judge of that. But i would add her as a Bonus in the list. Telephone proved to me she could really sang.

  124. Royalkev February 10, 2011

    See, this is what I’m talking about… Gaga is doing way too much to be in the industry for all of 5 minutes! Real Singers are: Whitney Houston , Mariah Carey , Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, even Jennifer Hudson. Lady Gaga, is not any where near these true vocalist on this list! Even if she was singing in her more jazzy style as Stephanie Germanotta, it’s still a fail! Her songwriting is a joke! She really think Love Game, Poker face, Paparazzi and Bad Romance are going to be considered classics. Are the lyrics in these songs suppose to move somebody 5 years from now. This woman is in her own world of delusion! I keep telling people she’s hot now and did alot in 3 years, but so did the Spice Girls! I think by 2012, she will have exhausted everyone’s patience with her and the new girls … Melanie Tipperson or Alana Jacobs will be the new “it” girls( they don’t exist yet, but you get my drift). Gaga need to quit it! She need to find some humility!

    I knew it…. She’s fool of herself!!! B**** SWEARS!!!! I have read some repsonses and they are cracking me up!!!! Lady Gaga is not a vocalist! She’s an entertainer! She’s not AN ARTIST!! She’s a copy cat!! She’s a little girl who screams for attention!!!! Like I’ve said before; she is NOT ORIGINAL!!!!!!! She’s RECYCLE!!!!

  143. Badd February 10, 2011

    @ Kat Deluna Fan: okay that’s you opinion but neither Bruno Mars nor Adele
    can outsing her….she’s a really good singer, artist, & performer
    who has worked hard to get here…i don’t think she’s any better or worse
    than Leona….Leona herself is just boring which is why she doesn’t get much shine.

    but Gaga does use things like her meat dress & costumes
    to get attention…she does it top show her avante garde style,
    express different things, and to prove some points.
    She was recognized wayy before she had all of that.

  144. LAMB 4 LIFE February 10, 2011

  148. AuntieJackie February 10, 2011

    @ Kat Deluna Fan

    I see what you’re saying, but those Divas would never, because they don’t need to in the same way. Gaga is competing with VERY pop-centric stars who have much less of a voice and are even more reliant on a gimmick than she can sometimes be. I think she’s just trying to remind people that she actually does have a voice, creativity and writing ability. She’s not all about the crazy ass outfits. Perhaps people calling her “gimmicky” and lumping her into the same category as your Rihanna’s and Ke$ha’s and Nicki Minaj’s (with the outrageous clothing, hair and marketing campaigns) got to her. People are wary of the gimmicks.

    Gaga isn’t competing with Beyonce or Mariah, or Patti, or or Whitney, not even Britney in terms of longevity. None of those Divas are sweating of Lady Gaga. Christina was, and you see where it got her. She hasn’t been around that long, and she’s trying to prove her longevity. Gaga is a SENSATION, so don’t get me wrong, but GAGA is new to this compared to those other Divas. She’s not trying to prove that she can sell or that people love her, she was trying to insinuate that she’ll have longevity….because being a fly-by-night-fad may be a fear of hers. People are already starting to tire of her antics, and the sting of imitators she created that are getting more and more outrageous.

  149. Camille February 10, 2011

    She’s clearly not one of the best dancers. She said it tough. But she works very hard.
    But TODAY, she talks about the industry, the current industry. Not from the past. Today, in the new generation, YES she’s one of the best singers. She never said she was the best singer of all time. 🙂

    Well for the lyrics of her songs: who said she talked about Poker Face or Just Dance or The Fame + The Fame Monsters Eras. Wait BTW, and maybe we’ll find out that she was talking about THIS album. Some of her songs, are lyrically very good. So Happy I Could Die, Dance In The Dark, Future Love.. and others.

    U should wait the album before judging her. x peace guys.

  150. Prince&Queen February 10, 2011

  151. KaVion February 10, 2011

    Well, you know….s*** I don’t know if I can defend her Lol. Well, she does have a VERY underrated voice and is an amazing performer, but like others have said, there’s plenty better than her. Gaga’s always seemed confident so this isn’t a surprise to me (“BTW will the best album of the decade”) especially considering she doesn’t know how to censor herself. Confidence is one of the keys to success, but pride comes before a fall. Hope Born This Way lives up to the hype. I guess I’m still rooting for Gaga.

    @Music Whiz
    Smh..stop giving out false information

  152. Time To Shine February 10, 2011

    “It’s not a secret that I have been inspired by tons of people,” she says, “David Bowie and Prince being the most paramount in terms of live performance.” She also seems to have made peace with the fact that she is compared to—or, less charitably, accused of ripping off—nearly every artist of the last 50 years. “I could go on and on about all of the people I have been compared to—from Madonna to Grace Jones to Debbie Harry to Elton John to Marilyn Manson to Yoko Ono—but at a certain point you have to realize that what they are saying is that I am cut from the cloth of performer, that I am like all of those people in spirit.” She takes a bite of filet mignon and says with her mouth full, “She was born this way” LADY GAGA Pop reigning Queen !

    It is sad that an amazing artist isn’t allowed to share with others that she is amazing at what she does. Isn’t that the point in discovering what your meant to do with your life?! Lady Gaga should be able to say whatever she thinks about her own work. Every day she brings a joyous feeling to millions of people by giving them that extra boost to tell people, such as the insecure jealous judgmental person who wrote this aricle, to f*** off!

    As for the lyrics, sometimes fewer words display more emotion. God forbid if somebody wants you to think and feel a little more emotions then bitterness. The other artists mentioned are very talented but share a certain quality, they are all the same! Change is good! Lets jump out of the small box society has created!

  155. Speaks Truth February 10, 2011

    @ Camillie, I agree with you about “BORN this WAY” I KNOW that’s it’s going be moving becuz shes an ARTIST who WRITES her own music and that’s another thing I LIKE about her, she gets PERSONAL alot of artist don’t do that anymore, its all bout just send me a demo wit LYRICS and that’s it but what GAGA is doing is SPEAKING from the HEART and I RESPECT her so much for that becuz in the end when all the GIMMICKS are GONE or folks get TIRED of it you then have to rely on your TALENT #thatisall

  156. KaVion February 10, 2011

    Also, is it really that amazing to have one of the best voices in TODAY’S industry?

  157. Camille February 10, 2011

    And she’s NOT a copycat. She’s very honest about who she loves and who inspired her. If she’s a copycat, EVERY artist is. The truth is: u can born with talent, but that doesn’t mean u’re an artist. being an artist means being inspired, using elements from the past and using ur own creativity. that’s what an artist is. and she’s an artist. she is very well cultured. She knows how artist used to behave. She knows how music industry worked and works today. She loves fashion (and yes, fashion is about recycle).
    people act lke it’s something wrong, to take elements from the past to feed ur work. it’s natural. Michael Jackson did it, Madonna did it, Britney… and this is not copying. they are artists.
    At least she’s honest: “It’s not a secret that I have been inspired by tons of people,” she says, “David Bowie and Prince being the most paramount in terms of live performance.” She also seems to have made peace with the fact that she is compared to—or, less charitably, accused of ripping off—nearly every artist of the last 50 years. “I could go on and on about all of the people I have been compared to—from Madonna to Grace Jones to Debbie Harry to Elton John to Marilyn Manson to Yoko Ono—but at a certain point you have to realize that what they are saying is that I am cut from the cloth of performer, that I am like all of those people in spirit.”

    Have you ever saw any Bruno Mars or Adele performances before ?they are way better than gaga.Just my opinion
    Ithink their songs are harder to sing that Gaga’s ones.Just the Way you are is more complex than paparazzi for example.Bruno plays 7 instruments,he is no joke !!

    Leona lewis may be boring for you but she can sing her ass off.Just be honest !

    Lady Gaga is average a la Alicia Keys.

    @AUNTIEJACKIE

    I agree.If we have to compare Gaga with her protagonists doing mostly pop records like Rihanna,Kesha,Perry,Jessie J,etc …she is a quit better….but Is it a reason to act as if she had discovered the Americans?

  167. Jokes February 10, 2011

    This seriously must be a joke.
    GaGa does not have strong vocal ability, I’m sorry. I’ve never heard a song by her where I’ve gotten chills because of the notes she’s hitting.
    People like Mariah and Beyonce should be saying this.
    GaGa may be more popular than them, commercial-wise, but GaGa is a terrible singer compared to the Beyonce’s, Mariah’s and Leona’s. This whole quote sounded absolutely arrogant.

  168. Kate February 10, 2011

    Completely agree with the Post! I dont know why everyone puts this lady on such a pedestal! She’s gotta a couple of good songs. But, I can’t even watch her perform because her stage show is so wierd…who cares if she sings live or whatever….everything else is too strange and awkward.

  169. its February 10, 2011

    It’s the illuminati that has done this. LMAO
    There has not been one moment where GaGa blew me away, vocally.

    Lol, that is true.. I can see where you’re coming from

  171. Kenny February 10, 2011

    Gaga has a good voice but thats it good, she is not one of the best in the Industry…. someone mentioned Adele (she can sang). This is just hype, you put this type of statement out in the air and someone is bound to believe it.

    Comments such as this one are quite depressing.

  176. FIRST OF ALL February 11, 2011

    FIRST OF ALL BRITNEY DID SING LIVE IN 1998.
    BRITNEY NEVER CLAIMED TO BE A VOCALIST, SHE COULD OF BEEN IF YOU LISTENED TO HER FIRST 2 ALBUMS (1999) BUT SHE’S A PERFORMER.

    I RATHER SEE HER DANCE HER ASS OFF THAN TRY TO SING. I DON’T KNOW WHATS UP WITH THESE SINGERS NOW A DAYS. KE$HA AND KATY PERRY, GIRLS WHO ARE SO AGAINST LIP SYNCING WHEN THEY CAN’T SING OR DANCE ANYWAY SO THEY HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO SING LIVE.

    ANYWAY GAGA IS VERY PRETENTIOUS AND COCKY IN THIS INTERVIEW. YOU’LL NEVER SEE MARIAH OR BEYONCE (REAL VOCALIST) ACT LIKE THIS.

  177. ERIC February 11, 2011

    F***! GAGA! WHY DID YOU HAD TO ACT LIKE CHRISTINA AGUILERA THE DAY BEFORE YOU NEW SINGLE COMES OUT!?
    F***, GAGA! WHY?
    WERE YOU ON A BAD MOOD OR WHAT? WAS THE WIG TO TIGHT?
    WHY GAGA, WHY GAGA?

    IT’S PRETTY MUCH NOT A COINCIDENCE THAT BRITNEY PRAISED GAGA AND GAGA’S THOUGHTS ON LIP-SYNCING SINCE THIS INTERVIEW WAS MADE LONG BEFORE BRITNEY TWEETED ABOUT GAGA!

    THE REAL COINCIDENCE IS THAT THIS GAGA INFORMATION WAS REVEALED THE DAY BEFORE THE RELEASE OF “BORN THIS WAY” .

    Only phenomenal voices of today: Mariah, Beyonce, Leona Lewis, Christina, JANELLE MONAE, JoJo, Kelly Rowland, HELL EVEN MICHELLE WILLIAMS.
    But Lady GaGa is most certainly not known for her vocals. Let’s be real, she’s known for the crazy things she does, having people overly excited to see what she’s going to do next, her extreme “fashion” or “Haute Couture” clothing. It’s clear that she’s not humble at all, and I’ve honestly lost a bit of respect because of that.

    I think we are at the very beginning of the GAGA vs. BRITNEY War.

    And by the end Beyonce (or someone else) will be the laughing third who wins it. (Like the Tudors in the War of the Roses in England)

    It’s going to be hard. GaGa vs. Britney. It’s going to be a gossip war this year.

  205. Tha Phoenix February 11, 2011

    OK. I’m going to say what I’ve been saying on Twitter. Being a monster (since Sept 2008), I can get away with saying things non-stans can’t.

    First off, I agree with almost everything Lady Gaga said. Currently, she does have one of the best voices in the pop industry. Consider her contemporaries – Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Rihanna etc. She can outsing them all – especially live.

    However, I am not happy that she said it for various reasons. People already think she is cocky and arrogant, and by saying what she did in this interview, she did herself no favours. Legends like MJ, Janet, Madonna, MC, Whitney and even the soon-to-be-legendary other two members of the Trinity – Queen B and Princess Brit – NEVER discuss how talented they think they are; they let others speak for them, whether they be peers, fans or the media. They have humility – which is an underrated virtue these days, in my opinion. And they have lasted over a decade in a cut throat industry.

    I have little doubt that Gaga’s comments were coming from a confident – not cocky – place, but they come across very badly. Christina Aguilera was the last artist I can think of who boasted about their talents (however justifiably) and look at what happened to her. When you don’t speak in a self depracating manner or big yourself up too much, the media always takes great pleasure in being the first to tear you down if you should ever fall. Heaven forbid Mamma Monster should ever release an album that is relatively unsuccessful; the media will chew her up and spit her out. Especially because they’ve built her up to this high level.

    Next, Gaga seems to forget that she’s only been in the industry for three years. Yes, she is slaying most of the other girls, but she still needs to keep it relatively cute. Calling out the faults of others when your own sheets aren’t so clean, is not a good look.

    And then of course there is my problem with Gaga’s comments on BTW being ‘the album of the decade’. Regardless of your personal opinion on your current era/album, do not share it with the public. In fact, many artists will say one of the following in relation to a new album:

    ‘I feel it’s some of the best work I’ve ever done’

    ‘Personally, I think I’ve never had a better album’

    etc. They always say what THEY think – they never say it’s the ‘album/song/tour of the decade’, regardless of how good they think it is, or whether in their belief it is even better than Thriller. Because, once again, Heaven forbid this album isn’t even as good as the brilliant Fame Monster; the media will have a field day.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say what I thought. My comments come from a place of love. There is nothing I hate more than hypocrisy, so who would I be if I reamed out other artists for bigging themselves up and didn’t do it for one of my faves?

    Carry on.

    *sips Martini and goes back to newspaper*

  206. sane beyhanna stan February 11, 2011

    Well this Is what happens when the media hype someone up like they do with her! She’s always been cocky so I’m not shocked I don’t believe ANY of her claims she made about herself but I respect her for owning up to what she believes she has.

  207. B**** PLEASE February 11, 2011

  208. True Blue February 11, 2011

    @ Tha Phoenix:

    I was in the midst of typing a long-ass comment, then the mobile browser stopped responding and I had to shut it down, which made me mad. Then I restarted the browser, read your comment, and I agree 100%. You spared from having to re-type my original comment (which was VERY long). There is absolutely nothing wrong with being confident and knowing that you’re good, but being boastful about it is quite another thing. Look what has happened to people who bragged about being the s***: Terrence Trent D’Arby, Oasis, Brandon Flowers. Where they now? Exactly. GaGa has a lot of haters waiting for her to fall, and if she’s not careful, she may very well make their wishes come true. Being a TRUE fan means being able to recognize when your fave has faults, and it seems that so far you and I are the only fans who realize that this isn’t good.

    @ Badd:

    I love GaGa, but Adele can EASILY outsing her, sorry.

  213. Misty February 11, 2011

    Uhhh…Lady gaga isnt really MY cup of tea, but where exactly did she throw shade? She said she is ONE of the greatest vocalists and song writers. She didnt say she is THE greatest. And it’s HER opinion and she is great at what she does–she can actually hold a tune, which is more then we can say for some huge figures in the music industry today.

    And as for the lip synching, many artists do it, so who’s to say it was shade to Britney? Hey, it could even be for Ke$ha since she’s been taking hits at gaga. I mean autoune & lip-synching is so prevalent in so many artists’ work that it’s almost unfair to single out one person.

    Lady Gaga I feel, knows to stay in her damn lane because this music industry is NOT guaranteed. One day you’re in, and the next you’re out. So I doubt she’d be foolish enough to talk recklessly, especially when she’s seen how it’s worked for Kanye, XTina and others! The interview might even be done PRIOR to Britney’s return…

    JMHO

  214. Tha Phoenix February 11, 2011

    @TRUE BLUE

    LOL. You’re welcome! And, yes, I agree with you. Being confident is different from being cocky – always let others do the talking when it comes to your talent. Discussing it yourself is not a good look.

    And you know me, sis. I like to think that I’m an honest stan; I’m not here for hypocrisy. I would have said the same thing if it had been an artist I don’t particularly care for.

    she is by no means one of the greatest voices of today. not even with ke$ha and katy perry dominating the scene. shes only 25 and her voice already sounds strained and worn out. just cause she can sing loud, doesnt mean shes talented. jazemine sullivan, jennifer hudson, adele, leona lewis and that country/pop singer jessie james are way better then gaga. her vocal range is very limited and her songwritting skills are a joke.
    “dont be a drag, just be a queen”
    my left ass cheek could have written better lyrics. she needs to fall back. xtinas national anthem performance was better then gagas best

    Um no. The guy ran up there because he was a jealous nobody and in his OPINION MJ was acting like somebody’s savior which is why he said he ran up there.

  228. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 11, 2011

    @Anthony The Great Naw, what he was wearing..the way he went up high up.. He should have known, people would have compared him to jesus.. he was wearing all white etc.
    He is only a singer.. people get very protective over religious stuff, mj will always come of second best.
    And the guy was javis cocker, he was drunk.. but he isnt a no body, he has a classic song called the common people. tbh for what he did.. he is actually seen as the legend by a lot of people.

  229. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue February 11, 2011

    @ Daniel:

    So what you’re saying is, MJ should have never worn white because people might compare him to Jesus? Boy, you need to stop smoking whatever it is that makes you talk s***.

    And why does the Jackson family in general bother you? You come for Janet on EVERY post, regardless of the fact that most of the time she has NOTHING to do with the topic at hand, and you pick on MJ over stupid things, not to mention you once said that he should’ve been grateful if Cheryl Cole wanted to work with him.

    Did you eat paint chips as a child?

  230. Taylor swifts number 1 fan February 11, 2011

    @OMG TRUEBLUE STALKS ME.
    It wasnt all to do with Mj wearing white, if you was in the uk.. with all the media coverage it got, and have you seen the clip? if you have.. you can see why people didnt like what he was dressed like hes a messiah or something. Its not me.. i was to young to remember, or have watched it.. but its still talked about on shows.

    I bought up mj on here, because a couple of post above, someone bought him up and i was just added to that post. I also dont have a problem with Mj, i bet i have more of the jacksons 5 and mj then you do… and as far cheryl cole… i was just trolling… waiting for you to comment.

    Well, thats your opinon.
    In the clip, he puts his hand on the people, and makes out he can heal them. Now, im not even saying he was wrong etc….because im not religious, but for a lot of people, him wearing white putting his arms like jesus on the cross, while a white light is shining behind him is a little to far..

    When the beatles said, they’re bigger then jesus.. people were burning their songs…. people are very touchy about their faith.

    after 6:30.. you’ll see what i mean.. but watch the whole clip. its gold.

  237. BLAH BLAH BLAH February 11, 2011

    sorry 4 those who are offended but it’s just the truth. i love her for bein confident. she’s so right. she works hard and it’s payin. she’s so talented. there’s really nothin arrogant here. it aint her fault if some artisits can’t sing or write.
    go gaga. u’re the best. those who are mad cuz u slayin will be mad again in 2020 when u still keep slayin.
    keep workin hard girl. let some so called divas know that quantity doesnt mean quality……
    #just sayin, no shade

  238. Jasmine February 11, 2011

    I think she was high during that interview. I agree with Trent that the artists he mentioned could outsing her without even trying. Lady Gaga can carry a tune, but she is no singer. She can write a little but she is no great songwriter…if she was she would have not gotten sued for 30 million by producer, ex boyfriend, and cowrighter rob fusari if she was an creative and she thinks she is.

  239. LOL February 11, 2011

    @ jasmine, u r so sad… oops 🙂
    she’s still the greatest of all the three…just look at what she’s achieved in 3 years to start..fall back b****

  240. KaVion February 11, 2011

    Is @TAYLOR SWIFT FAN a child?
    Just the way he types & his arguments seem very childish.
    No disrespect, there’s nothing wrong if he is.
    Just wondering.

  241. can u handle me? February 11, 2011

    yes gaga i so agree with u. u were even so nice in my opinion. if i were u, i’d say im the best, i’m true, i’m original, i deserve everythin i get. im an icon, gimme 2 or 3 more years, u’ll call me legend. i’m gaga, i’m a star, i was born in ny. i’m famous, i’m white, i’m rich, i’m human, I’M one the smartest artist out there, oh u ddnt get that? i said i had a brain considerin the fact that many artists out there didn’t bother goin to school. and i also can write, i used to write 4 other artists, i write my song. i even wrote alone one of the greatest singles of all time, the greatest single of this decade called “born this way”, which will be epic by the way.
    oh i almost forgot, did i tell u i actually always sing live. i think it’s important, when u call urself a singer to be able to sing live, when people in ghetto talk about music industry they use names like “game” but actually it’s not just game (even if it’s really fun n easy for brilliant n had workin act like me) but it’s really a profession, it’s an art, u have to kill for ur art. kill, burn ur godamn vocals.
    of course, i play an instrument. it’s piano.
    then my birth name is stephanie, but i have people in the game calling me “lady gaga” then my fans who always go hard for me calling me ……MOTHER MONSTER, if u know what i mean

  242. jezebel February 11, 2011

    brandy?! lol thats a stretch…turning nothing into negativity. she said shes ONE of the best, not THE best. calm down trent. and, wow, a Christina Aguilera praise?! If one has listened to her albums, then one can contest, that she is a pretty clever songwriter! She has a zany and metaphorical way of writing, I guess thats the ‘confusion’ you are referring to…and c’mon using “Bad Romance” as your reference…weak, overplayed, and to pick that line of all lines in that song–LAAAAME! Listen to Dance in the Dark…Boys, Boys, Boys, shallow–perhaps the content, but the words are cleverly written.

  243. DION-ISH February 11, 2011

    IS SHE BECOMING THE KANYE WEST OF POP MUSIC *GASP* LOL…I Cant.

    And Shes a Great POP artist but um NO Sweetie, You DO NOT have one of the best voices and your lyrics aren’t about s*** either especially since half of it sounds like s*** Kesha would write! …SIT.

  244. Kevin February 11, 2011

    I’m still annoyed by this

    As I’m typing this, Christina aguilera’s FIGHTER is playing. Vocally, Gaga could never.

    And as a lamb, I take the voice comment very seriously. Mariah ‘Diva’ Carey is the best. One of the best signifies that shes bout top 10. Nope.

    And there is no pop industry. The industry = the whole music industry. I don’t appreciate gaga taking it that far. Maybe if she had stated “one of the best voices in pop music today” there would be a different story, but fact is she tried to shine in areas she isn’t a heavyweight. Let her discuss her performances and piano skills, but you have about 50+ years of SANGING to contend with when you start discussing “the industry”

  245. gus February 11, 2011

    ok but mariah carey, beyonce, christina aguilera, monica, katy perry too baby don’t forget this gaga!!!!!

  246. Gabs February 11, 2011

    I love this crazy b****. lol. Again…WHY do people take this s*** so seriously? WHY do you want her humble? Thats boring. Basically she knows how to stay a conversation. At first I thought she meant “voice” in terms of influence like with the gay rights thing but I do think she was being a cocky b**** now. Again, its all entertainment. Chill out people. The whole interview is actually a pretty good read. Im excited for BTW but im not expecting the new thriller like some people.

  247. Sugaranice February 11, 2011

    Well is GaGa being Arrogant?? When she started calling her fans Monsters I thought she had crossed the line..how much of this is publicity for the album and how much of this is really how she feels?? I wonder?

    GaGa uses the term down to earth and Family and humble in her description as well…a wise man once said, the person who wins the award for humbleness can never get up to accept. GaGa is just hyping up the Album folks…!!! Some Artist use the Media better than others.

  248. S*** February 11, 2011

    WHAT THE F*** DID THIS B**** JUST SAY????

    Am I reading correctly?????

    This B**** has OFFICIALLY lost her damn mind, I predict she’ll FLOP & end up like Britney 4 yrs ago.F*** THIS OVERRATED B**** & Her Voice is VOMMIT.

    ===>>

  249. S*** February 11, 2011

    Gag’s Voice = FAR BELOW AVG
    Her Dancing = FAR BELOW AVG
    Her Performance ability = Rihanna’s = FAR BELOW AVG
    Writing = AVG
    Music = MOSTLY TERRIBLE
    Overall = Ke$ha = A HOT ASS MESS!!

    STUPID TALENTLESSS UGLY GAGA B**** AND LMFAOOOOOOOO AT HOW GAGA INSULTED BRITNEY SPEARS LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    EXTREME SHADEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    • mashi May 29, 2013

      don’t call her talentless. she’s the most creatively talented person in the world, whether you think she’s a freak or not. and in the end she has true musical talent, surely over britney’s. she does have an incredible voice, even if it’s not one of the best in the industry. she sings her songs live and sounds great even while dancing unlike britney who doesn’t even bother to sing at all, and like a true artist she writes all her songs, again, unlike britney. she’s even written songs FOR britney! she also designs her outfits, comes up with all her video concepts, etc.

  259. debbi February 11, 2011

    ….she’s delusional. This is just another attempt to keep her in the headlines.

  260. TheRealBabyDre February 11, 2011

    Beyonce or Adele are LMFAO-ing right now … :))
    Gaga u trippin’ girl ..U sound like a fool.. Stop this s*** !

  261. KERIHILSONISSODAMNWACK February 11, 2011

    i think everything she said is true however her singing ability is ok.

  262. Madonna February 11, 2011

    Another cheap copycat! 15 minutes is ova! Express Yourself!

  263. Robier February 11, 2011

    The Greatest? they never had to copy a single note form another song………. Ever.

  264. cheaa February 12, 2011

    I luv lady gaga, but that was a bit much. But, I do think she is great at songwriting. I think she is way better than Brandy for sure. If you’ve seen Brandy & Ray J the tv series, you’ll see that all Brandy does is provide the voice, she has someone who writes the songs for her. Beyonce isn’t even in the scenes anymore, the fame got to her a long time ago.

  265. alexis carrington February 12, 2011

    Oh Gaga…you play a dangerous game when you make brazen comments like that. It worked for madonna, but it has backfired for many others. You’re good, but great at anythign that I have seen from you.

  267. xtian gonzalez February 14, 2011

    overrated b****!!!! christina aguilera is the greatest voice of this generation and britney is the greatest perfomer!

  268. Simone February 14, 2011

    Is she taking cues from Kanye West?

  269. britneyknowles February 15, 2011

    this idiotic cocky ***** needs to fall big time so she/he can have a reality check! Christina wrote her song “Fighter” by herself and the lyrics of that song is greater than any of gaga’s catalogue. And who the hell does she/he think she/he is saying that he/she has the greatest voice in the industry??? all gaga do is shout and his/her range is very limited and sometimes almost sounds like a man. Leona, adelle, Amy winehouse, beyonce and christina can blow him/her out of the water when it comes to singing.

  270. Lady_Caca_Eww February 15, 2011

    LMAO!!!

    Lady Germ’s voice is ugly. I don’t like the sound of it. Nothing about her singing style is epic or outstanding.

    Lady Caca’s songs are incredibly easy to sing. There is absolutely nothing challenging vocally-wise about her wack ugly songs.

    Lady Caca is an embarrassing Halloween clown that wants to be a new Madonna. It’s so unbelievable played-out. I will never understand why this wackness has so many followers on Twitter LOL….

  271. stefan March 17, 2011

    she not push over and shes natural and loyal and sings live and puts on a show and don’t talk about the bitchy drunkard christina ag shes not even worth it i would rather hear her hit a different variety of notes and not like what she did in that terrible album bionic gaga has been talking about acceptance and all of a sudden the stores are flooded with albums with no meaning and sining about accepting who you are and im just angry gaga truly means and portrays a good role model you should be quick to judge she did quote “one of ” not “THE” and she is definitely better than all of us here so stfu

  272. Marcus July 4, 2011

    lol what an arrogant overrated woman… all she is really famous for is her crazy costumes.. her songs aren’t even well written.. like the article mentioned. Maybe speechless is ok but thats pretty much the only one. Judas sounds like Bad romance and she is running out of ideas. yes she is a good SINGER but she has a mediocre VOICE. She’s trying to get people think she is the voice of the generation but unfortunately for her, Christina Aguilera holds that position and could outsing her any day. So she needs to stop letting the fame get to her head. Artists like her who rely on freaky costumes will never make it far and only last a few years. People like Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Mariah Carey etc will last forever because of their vocal ability and songs

  273. rofia September 3, 2011

    Gaga is the best

  274. livi September 18, 2011

    Dont even noe y i used to be her fan anyways.Maybe she shudnt have blown her own horn lyk dat cuz she is jux an average vocalist and i honestly dont see her as such a hotshot ten years from now.The same people praisn her will bring her tumblin down when she runs out of halloweeny clothings and creepy songs.Great singers like mariah,whitney,celine dion and madonna have the bragging rights and even the young talents like adele,beyonce,alicia keys,charice,carrie,christina and Britney.She’s jux not that gud.Mind you, her days are numbered.

  275. Hary March 10, 2012

    She’s so RIGHT! Moreover, I would say she’s the greatest and the most beautiful voice nowadays. NOONE can compare to her. Including Adele, as Adele has incorrect voice-set and for this reason she had to do a surgery of the vocal chords. Gaga sings WAY better.

  276. mashi May 29, 2013

    she is pretty damn talented though. elton john, a legend himself has said that she’s the most talented person he’s ever met. maybe she’s not solely the best singer or best songwriter, but overall she has the true musical talent as well as being a creative genius. she’s probably the most creatively talented woman in the world, whether you think she’s a freak or not. and she is actually a very good vocalist. her live singing is very pleasant to hear even while dancing and she’s a great songwriter too. she’s been writing hits for other singers before doing so for herself. chris martin, lead singer of coldplay, has even said she’s a better songwriter than he is. i don’t even blame her for being arrogant, she’ll be a legend too.

    Yes, for me, she has a really great voice! Just take a look at her live performances, it’s truly awesome, comparing to other artists. Gaga is a really talented singer. i appreciate her efforts.

    it is time to be happy. I have learn this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some fascinating things or advice.

    Perhaps you could write subsequent articles referring to this article.

    I desire to read more things approximately it!

  281. Get a Grip October 29, 2017

    Lady Gaga has admitted that she makes soulless electronic pop. I wonder if her defenders are aware of this, or if they even care. It can be catchy, and it has a beat to move to. But great music it is not, and she’s a mediocre musical talent at best.

    The pop music industry is driven by publicity-hungry entertainers, not musicians, and they capitalize on the fact that most young people are musical illiterates.

  282. Nadia November 13, 2017

    Gaga has a better voice than Beyoncé, Brandy, Jill Scott, but cannot be compared to Carey or Aguillera. They are different genres. GAGA is by far more creative and more entertaining and has a very powerful voice. Tons of people out there have great voices, but they seem not to crack it because you need more than a voice, and Gaga has that. She is one note. Christina and Mariah are one note.

  283. Gourdman December 19, 2017

    She does have one of the greatest voices in the industry today, but that only illustrates how far the industry has fallen.
