Lady GaGa Slams Critics In ‘The Advocate’

Published: Wednesday 6th Jul 2011 by David

It seems that although she has kept mum about the various criticisms she has faced in recent months, Lady GaGa is very aware of everything that is being said about her.

So much so that she has addressed these criticisms  in an upcoming edition of ‘The Advocate‘ magazine.

Find out what Ms.Germanotta said below…

On the claim she copies Madonna, she explained:

I just feel so connected to Madonna in a lot of ways, and I feel connected to Barbra, and I feel connected to Cher and Blondie and all of the women who came before me. I worshipped them my whole life, and I would never be where I am today without all of them to inspire me. I feel so grateful that I have such strong women to look up to.”

Addressing the suggestion she uses the LGBT community for her own personal gain, she revealed:

“To say that I would use the gay community to sell records is probably one of the most ridiculous statements anyone can make about me as a person,I would say the top thing I think about every single day of my life, other than my fans, loving the music, and my family being healthy, is social justice and equality.”

It seems that the issues of Madonna and the LGBT community have become a staple star in the galaxy that is Lady GaGa’s career.

For whilst many critics have suggested that the ‘Born This Way’ singer is nothing more than a copy cat impersonator, it should be noted that Madonna also faced the same claims when she debuted.

Often accused of ‘swagger jacking’ Bananarama and Cyndi Lauper as well as Cher and Marilyn Monroe.

However, if the excerpts of this interview are anything to go by, it is the issue that surrounds GaGa’s reasons for supporting the LGBT community that seem to touch more of a sensitive nerve with the star.

Unfortunately for the ‘Poker Face’ singer, this seems to be an issue that does not seem to be going anywhere soon.

Especially as she continues to face claims that her underlying reason for affiliating herself with this community is to add an extra edge to an act so many of her Monsters love and adore.

    That’s one ugly cover of one ugly tranny.

  2. DUNKFAN July 6, 2011

    Sounds like a Madonna fan upset that shes being replaced, Madonna pimped out the Gay community as well.

    • HA HA HA November 7, 2012

      Except she’s not being replaced.

  3. matt July 6, 2011

    Madonna – Marilyn/Bananarama/Cher
    Lady Gaga – Bowie/Grace/Madonna

    Madonna had it, now Gaga has it, if anyone thinks Gaga is still on her 14th minute need to fix up and get the f*** out

  4. steven33 July 6, 2011

    the b**** is a flooooooooooooooooooop . f*** lady caca the b**** with a d***

  5. bey’knight July 6, 2011

    i think i missed the part where she slammed her critics, someone point me in the right direction

    far be it for halfbaked journalists to make a mountain out of a molehill *eye roll*

  6. HaYYYYYYYYYYYy July 6, 2011

    she probably is copying them and getig influence from them but so what
    theyre not out making music or doing anything, so why does it matter if she is doing what they did and is still having a huge fanbase

  7. nic July 6, 2011

    Wait okay- so are you saying it’s not okay to be a transvestite or have a d***?
    she’s never said she was either, but if she was- Is that wrong? There’s a difference between criticising someone’s music and criticising WHAT they ARE.

  8. Lady whatever July 6, 2011

    Lady Caca will always and forever remain a lame, embarrassing, cheesy, wack newbie wannabe, in my opinion.

    Lady Caca is a foolish newbie that keeps talking about how great her own sh*t is, when really she’s just a freaking tribute artist. A f*cking plagiarist. Nothing she does is actually special, innovate or good. It’s all a redundant, stupid mess.

    Lady Caca sounds like a really bad, terrible male singer with no real vocal range or talent. Her piano is a boring average mess and she is extremely generic without her stupid troll wigs.

    The media in general continues to adore Lady Caca and I will NEVER in a million years understand why. They’re all a bunch of clowns, all of them. Eww eww eww.

    Lady Caca and her monstrous fans need to learn to show some f*cking respect to the real innovators and legends more often. Stupid f*cking newbs.

    Madonna, Cher, Grace Jones, Christina Aguilera, Britney, Ayumi Hamasaki, Roisin Murphy, Michael Jackson, etc ALL take a big fat sh*t on Lady Wannabe. Lady Caca’s troll @ss is like a stupid mosquito : annoying.

    S@m does this on purpose. Sometimes I think he comments on here himself.

    I love the cover. The hat and hair reminds me of the film “Bonnie and Clyde”.

  11. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) July 6, 2011

    I get what she’s saying about these female icons/legends and I respect that. Glad she cleared this one out. I still don’t like her.I don’t get her music, her vision, her attitude…

    @BEY’KNIGHT
    “To say that I would use the gay community to sell records is probably one of the most ridiculous statements anyone can make about me as a person” That’s the ‘slamming’ part

    • HA HA HA November 7, 2012

      Except she doesn’t. She “does” everyone else.

  15. stefani germ July 6, 2011

    Lady Graga is 25 years old. She most definitely grew up actually worshiping Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera (more so then Cher or Barbara LOL I mean please).

    I find it highly hilarious how Lady Gagag continues to pretend like Britney and Christina didn’t exist and didn’t influence her at all. LOL!!!!!!!!!! She simply refuses to give Britney and Christina any real credit.

    Lady Gaga is fake and transparent. But all the “monsters” are too blind and ignorant to realize.

  16. ISTANN4GAGA July 6, 2011

    @WildChild…I know lolol
    @Bey’Knight she was addressing the claims that she was using gays(a claim I have seen being used on this site.) I personally don’t believe these claims but people have their opinions….

    as for the Madonna praise,I think people are still going to act as if she never praised madonna and use that as a reason to bash her.

  17. bey’knight July 6, 2011

    @ASAP

    thats not reallyt slamming CRITICS per say, she only rubbished their sentiments

    @WildChild

    obviously comprehension is not your forte, i’d say more but i dont think i can break it down to your level of daftness

  18. bey’knight July 6, 2011

    i know what she was saying, she seemed very collected. the post made it look like she went in on them . she addressed each allegation maturely. she had gone in on her critics’ in past interviews so i was expecting somewhat that.

    my original comment was directed towards tgj staff for being unnecessarily hyperbolic but what else is new in pseudo-journalism

    If the media is allowed to kiss lady troll’s b*** 24/7, then
    I am allowed to come here to express my personal negative feelings about the epic FAIL that is : the media, Lady Facking Sh*t and her annoying fans.

    Period, point blank. Lady Wannabe is TERRIBLE, REDUNDANT, UNORIGINAL and the media will never convince me of the contrary.

    They can keep trying to shove that sh*t down my throat unsuccessfully.

  22. ISTANN4GAGA July 6, 2011

    You don’t have to like gaga but to call her Lady Cacacaca or Lady Poop sh*t while going on a good number of her posts are not able to solve your problem at all…..

    If you don’t like the media “shoving her down your throat” then there’s always different types of music you can explore…..

  23. stefani germ July 6, 2011

    Lady Gaga is a composite and hack of many different older pop artists that came before her. She is MOSTLY a mixture of Aguilera and Britney. But of course the proud, delusional drug-addicted, deranged Lady Poop would NEVER admit to this fact! lol

    Lady Gaga is extremely lame and derivative. She is not fooling me.

  24. Truth Seeker July 6, 2011

    It’s great that Gaga addressed the ridiculous claims that she is using the gay community for her own gain. It’s not slamming the critics so much as finally taking up for herself about the absurdity of the claim. Really if anything her pro-gay stance has alienated a lot of potential buyers. While some artists have a gay following based on the camp factor that comes with their music and persona, Gaga has actually taken a real stance at the height of her fame to help bring forth change.

    It’s not just with her political rallying but also in her music, for example while others would have skirted around saying, ‘No matter gay, straight or bi/ Lesbian transgendered life’ Gaga not only sung those lyrics but she put them in the song that would be her 1st single from her highly anticipated album. Instead of choosing Marry The Night, she put the spotlight directly on a song that talks about what she stands for and that is equality.

    As for the Madonna comparisons, it is what it is. I view them both as artists who have taken from the past but while many of Madonna’s image changes can be pinpointed directly to Monroe, Dietrich etc Gaga seems to make things her own. I also must say that I find it a tad annoying that many would rather be lazy and compare Gaga to Madonna as oppose to doing their homework and looking at the work of Leigh Bowery, Isabella Blow, Grace Jones, David Bowie etc

  25. WildChild July 6, 2011

    @Bey Knight WTF are you talking about? I was agreeing with you.

  26. Truth Seeker July 6, 2011

    Hmm…Gaga has said in the past how growing up she was a fan of Spears doing the TRL fame days. She has also talked highly of Aguilera despite the nasty comments that were directed towards her. Yet with all of that being said, to claim that she is mixture of the two is absurd. Neither of those ladies have made a artistic mark that would take over Bowie, Jones, Springsteen, Jackson, Harry, AC/DC, Crue or Madonna’s that would have Gaga aspiring to be like them.

  27. ISTANN4GAGA July 6, 2011

    @Truth Seeker I agree but the reason many people do it is because she comes across looking/sounding like Madonna more than anyone else.(I mean she did say Grace & David inspired her.)

    @Stefani Germ…
    She’s more of a mix of Glam Rock artists with a bit of Marilyn Manson,Grace Jones and Madonna thrown in…
    PS,she did say she admired Britney & Christina(she even took a picture @MonsterBall with Britney.)

    Yes! They are obviously in love with Gaga. There is no way in hell that anything can be shoved down someone’s throat unless they look for it habitually.

  29. ISTANN4GAGA July 6, 2011

    @Wildchild exactly…..

    it’s like that one period of time where a Britney Spears fan comes onto Ladygaga.com’s forums to start s***.(I haven’t been there in a while so IDK if they are still there.)

  30. Truth Seeker July 6, 2011

    ISTANN4GAGA, I honestly think that Gaga being compared to Madonna is mainly due to lazy journalism. They seem to compare any Caucasian blonde who sings pop music to her. I still have never got the Britney comparison. If anything Britney reminded me much more of Janet than Madonna. There is no doubt influence there and they do look a like, as Gaga said on Larry King, its not her fault that she looks like Madonna considering Madonna and her mother favor each other lol.

    I just see Gaga as someone who is blazing her own trail. I don’t think that she is the most original artist not even close but I love that she is progressing and aiming for those original moments as she mentioned in her ShowStudio interview. 🙂

  31. bey’knight July 6, 2011

    @WildChild

    oh am sorry i thought u were referring to me as a loser troll cus u misread my comment as a diss towards gaga. apologies

  32. King B July 6, 2011

    Haters will always hate. Seriously, the chick could cure cancer and people would accuse her of doing it for self-serving purposes.

    But I have to point out one crucial fact that the haters either seem to not know or conveniently ignore. She’s bisexual. So when she’s fighting the good fight for the LGBT community, it’s also worth noting that as a member of said community, she’s also fighting for herself. So she has an extremely good reason to be invested in this like her life depends on it.

    Although even if she were straight, it would be just as ridiculous to accuse her of exploiting the gay community for personal gain. Yeah, cause we all know how many people in the public eye have taken advantage of the profitability of gay people. *eye roll*

  33. ISTANN4GAGA July 6, 2011

    exactly @TruthSeeker

    What people have to realize is that sometimes,even the most beautiful work of art can be inspired/taken from something….

    while we’re on the subject of her artistry…I know people have been questioning what she will do when she runs out of ideas,my response is that EVERY artist has those moments(creative blocks) and that she’ll probably find it the same way most everyone else finds it.

  34. King B July 6, 2011

    @ Truth Seeker:

    100% agreed. Gaga does remind me strongly of Madge at times, but to call her a clone is highly inaccurate. And I totally agree that Britney is way more Janet than Madonna as well. But some people really do think that white, female and blonde = exactly alike. It really is lazy journalism at best.

  35. Malibu Barbie July 6, 2011

    learn from her Nicki Minaj, THAT IS CALLED PAYING HOMAGE… not making dumbass diss tracks and getting kims friends to betray her so u feel like uve won

  38. Truth Seeker July 6, 2011

    ISTANN4GAGA, Well Said! It is really a shame that people are awaiting for her to not be able to come up with a idea or for her to just fail in general. The thing that I have found refreshing about Gaga is that she is well versed in many areas. She has a vast amount of knowledge when it comes to pop culture past and present as well as more obscure references and religion.

    King B, Exactly! I don’t expect the Madonna comparisons to go away anytime soon if ever but Gaga seems to be well on her way to making a mark in the industry that is totally her own.

    • HA HA HA November 7, 2012

      “The thing that I have found refreshing about Gaga is that she is well versed in many areas. She has a vast amount of knowledge when it comes to pop culture past and present”

      She doesn’t, actually.

    How the f*ck does a person avoid hearing about Lady Wannabe in the music channels on the television… when all they do there is talk about how supposedly “awesome” and “great” Lady Sh*t is????

    F*ck Lady Caca and her embarrassing fans! You are f*cking nuts and delusional if you think the Gaga haters actually like her!!!!!!!!

    You foolish kids!!!!!! GTFO with that mess!

  49. Musicfan July 6, 2011

    In other news; her next single is coming soon. She’s working on a video and her tour is coming soon y’all! Don’t be mad though. Lol. Let Britney do her thing on Femme Fatale tour cuz when Gaga begins her tour, it’s over.

  50. lady wannabe : fact indeed July 6, 2011

    Lady Gaga doesn’t respect the latest pop stars that paved the way for her : Britney and Christina.

    Gaga keeps making fun of Britney’s lipsynching on her tours. She also said this about Christina Aguilera : “Anyone with two eyes can see the resemblance.” insinuating that Christina was copying her. That’s simply delusional. Did Britney and Christina also copy Lady Gaga when they joined the Mickey Mouse Club and made dance and pop music in 1999??? LMAO!!!??

    Lady Gaga allowed her team to use Christina Aguilera’s name everywhere online, in paid banners advertisements, to promote Lady Gaga’s debut “The Fame”! That should be considered illegal, what a mess.
    Gaga lets her buddies Akon and Perez talk sh*t about Christina all the time.

    Lady gaga doesn’t truly respect the ones that actually influenced her the most.

    We all know she is a wannabe. She wishes she could dance and look like Britney from 2001 and sing and be fearless like Christina Aguilera, amongst other things.

    Lady Gaga wouldn’t want either of them to suddenly be very popular once again and take attention away from her… that’s why she likes to pretend like she was never really a fan of them in her lifetime.

    However, Lady Gaga is 25 indeed and most certainly was very influenced by Britney and Christina while growing up. If Gaga says that’s not true, she is most definitely lying.

    Whatever lol

  51. lady clown troll July 6, 2011

    Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” was like a song about Britney Spears and the whole breakdown she had…

    When Gaga attempts to belt in her songs live, it’s like she’s trying to take some of Christina’s styl of singing. EXTREMELY UNSUCCESSFULLY, though LOL. Christina’s vocals and style are unmatched, worldwide

    Lady Gaga definitely wants to be a new Britney/Christina. No doubts about that.

    It’s funny how instead… she’ll mention artists that are very irrelevant today (but legendary, nonetheless) such as like David Bowie and Grace Jones and Barbara has major influences to her… LOL Really? lol
    I am NOT impressed!!!!!!

    nicki did pay homage, then it was kim who started sayin she copied her and wouldnt shut her dumbass mouth and thats why nicki started taking shots at her
    and kims friends did not betrey her, if they want to make a song with nicki, thats not betreying
    and even if they did betray kim, hows that nickis fault??

  57. nice_gurl July 7, 2011

    I’m no Gaga fan, but to say that she copies Madonna is ridiculous. She is inspired by her, so of course there is going to be similarities of the two. Also, how different can one person be so as not to be called a copycat?

    And she does not use gays. It’s just something that she feels strongly about and supports.

  58. sylvia July 7, 2011

    Lady Caca is not inspired by Madonna.

    Are we talking about the same Lady caca, here??? This is a stupid lame imbecile that keeps talking about how original and amazing she is! How everything she does is her own invention and she is inspired by nobody! How The Haus of Caca is her own property and she creates all her looks!

    Lady Caca is a wannabe of Madonna and many other people!

    But she is the cheap FAKE version. Lady Caca is like McDonalds : Cheap product and lots of ignorant wack-@ss fans.

    The end!
