Contrary to popular belief, since the very beginning of Lady Gaga‘s career Laurieann Gibson has been at the helm as Gaga’s chief Creative Director and Choreographer.
As Creative Director it was Gibson’s job to bring the religion-obssessed Pop Star’s outlandish ideas to life in the form of elaborate stage shows, performances, and music videos.
Whether it be Gaga’s metaphorical death at 2009’s VMA‘s performing ‘Paparazzi’ or her blatant mock of Christianity in the ‘Judas’ video, Gibson was always a willing accomplice. However, after Miss Boom Kack’s alleged firing, the famed choreographer is singing a new tune set to the lyrics of “Gaga became too dark and twisted.”
Hear the tea Gibson spilled to ‘Entertainment Tonight (Canada)’ after the jump and sound-off below.
Of the duo’s professional split she says: “No judgment, but [working with Gaga] just got a little dark for me, creatively. I think it just reached the point where I wanted to keep the brand that I had helped build a little purer and still accessing the kids, and it was fun for me. But gets difficult when it gets a little dark and heavy.”
On the one hand, judging from Lady Gaga’s religiously offensive antics and music videos it’s completely plausible for Gibson to feel the way says. While there should be a strict separation between one’s personal and professional life, when one’s professional choices conflicts with one’s personal morals or beliefs it’s clearly time for a change.
On the other hand, Gibson was just involved in thee most sacrilegious display of blasphemy in the history of recorded music when she signed on to produce Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Roman Holiday’ performance for the Grammys. With that being said it’s unclear if her motives to explain the reason behind her fallout with Gaga is sincere, or yet another vapid publicity stunt to garner attention. After all, she did learned from the best Stunt Queen in all the land.
