Lady GaGa Assesses Creative Journey / Weighs In On Art Vs Instagram

As an act who rose to fame by way of the tool, Lady GaGa is all too familiar with the part the internet plays in crafting and sharing ideas, and introducing the world to the artists behind them.

However, in a new interview given to Berlin’s ‘ProSieben‘, the vocalist has weighed in on the negative impact the advent of photo sharing outlets like Instagram has had on the world art…or at least Joe Public’s perception of what it truly means to be an artist.

Indeed, while the Grammy winner doesn’t knock its impact, she does explain why the attention many of its staples receive from the images they share can never truly compare to the passion and discipline it takes to create material that does more than score ‘Likes’, ‘Followers’ and ‘Fans’.

Wise words below…

      EXACTLY.

      • Justice For Bionic 11.11.13 November 3, 2013

        Lady Gaga continues her 2nd-rate Madonna clone act with a handful of songs on the album. “Fashion” sounds eerily similar to “Holiday,” while “Venus” copies the same vocal inflections of many of Madonna’s biggest hits. In “S** Dreams,” Gaga’s unsexy spoken parts are trying (but failing) to coo the listeners as Madonna’s s*** spoken vocals did with “Justify My Love.”

        When Gaga isn’t trying to imitate Madonna, she is trying to emulate David Bowie. She uses the Bowie-inflicted accent on the semi-flop “Applause,” and even evokes some of his style in “Manicure” and “Venus.” On “Swine,” she is in full Joan Jett mode until the EDM beat kicks in. Then, she sounds like P!nk. In fact, the whole ARTPOP album sounds like a kitchen-sink reference to other artists.

        Artpop: 2 out 5*

      Artpop is now a leaking showerhead. 😀 😀 😀

      • JohnVidal November 3, 2013

        After 5 years in the music industry, Lady Gaga has become a parody of herself.

    • Convent Gurl November 3, 2013

      Lady Gaga and Monster need Jesus!

      I pray for this transexual’s soul, i mean that is pure sin that will place on that AMA’s stage this year! i will take out my Bible and sing praise songs in my head just to make it thru this evil and vile show! I hope Jesus can reach Gaga before its too late.

      I’m so appalled by Gaga’s artistic vision that i just want to take my Bible and burn the hell out of this t***** wig! That’s what someone should have done last week in London.

      I could just beat that Gaga dude down to the floor and then take a big steaming wet crap of mine on his fugly gladiator-helmet face! I will pray for Lady GagGag but if the Lord can not reach this superficial musician, then i hope someone turns that freak show Gaga into pampers buttwipe!

      Jesus please help this country for it is full of sin! I dont mind GLBT but the freak Monsters with only talent recycling other people work, stealing and rehashing have brought down the entire music industry, Billboard, The Grammys and a once Christian nation i love.

      God bless USA and please share this on Twitter and Facebook.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily November 3, 2013

      YASSSS THATS WHO SHE LOOKS LIKE!!! DAMN ITS BEEN IRKING MY NERVES NOW I GOT IT!!!!

    • Lamb4Life November 3, 2013

      Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP finally leaked on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, at least for Lady Gaga’s legend of critics, the album isn’t a complete disaster. Unfortunately, for her decreasing fan base, it also isn’t a very good album either. Artpop is like an abortional child from Gaga’s stinky a***.

  2. Amanda Bynes November 3, 2013

    She’s ugly as f***. Yawn*

  3. My face is BEEEAATTTTT hunty November 3, 2013

    Hideously unattractive. She’s f****** repulsive!

  4. Ju don’t even know November 3, 2013

    Didn’t read the article but I know what ever she said or did was = 2 SELF SHADE! Because literally everything she has done recently is cringeworthy and embarrassing.

  5. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare November 3, 2013

    Oh no, they’re already here. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Now as a Janet stan, I agree about the flawlessness of “If” but come on now. TGJ becoming “bash-Gaga-central” has gotten ridiculous.

    • JOHNVIDAL November 3, 2013

      They can´t handle an intelligent artist talking about things. She was right in what she said btw.

  6. Amanda Bynes November 3, 2013

    T***** Caca and Donatella Versace could be twins. U.G.L.Y

  7. Leak That T***** November 3, 2013

    Artpop has more leaks than overused tampons…

  8. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 3, 2013

    LMAO she truly believes she’s creating art, is she deluded? Someone needs to give her a reality check.

  9. Kim (Beyonce/Rihanna fan) November 3, 2013

    But Twitter is her best friend when it comes to share links to help her songs on the charts.

  10. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare November 3, 2013

    That was a GREAT interview. 🙂 Very insightful.

  11. JohnVidal November 3, 2013

    Artpop is like an abortional child from Gaga’s stinky a***.

    🙁

  12. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 3, 2013

    OH Lady Gaga please stop, you’re starting to think you’re better than everyone else when you’re releasing the shittiest music this era and last.

    The delusions are comical to say the least and your obsession to become your own biggest cheerleader is nauseating.

    Somebody please get a shovel, the b******* is deep in that video.

    • Stop the drama Start the music November 3, 2013

      You’re one of the shallow ppl she’s talking about in this interview. I’m pretty sure you think anything that’s not number 1 is s***** music. Well, that’s ur taste. But don’t pass it off as fact if that’s how you feel.

  13. Slayer November 3, 2013

    can’t even take her seriously when her new album sucks so bad

  14. Nilla Malik November 3, 2013

    Gaga trying too hard to sound just like Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. The “ARTPOP” song starts off as a dreamy electro chiller, until Gaga starts singing such cheesy lyrics as “We belong together. We belong togeather. ARTPOP!”

      I see the impostor is back. LOL!

  16. Stop the drama Start the music November 3, 2013

    She’s so well spoken and intelligent. This interview was very insightful about her journey as an artist. I love her. She seems so kind.

    • Xerox Machine Much November 3, 2013

    Artbarf leaked and Gaga stops Tweeting….Amen. 😀

  19. MrTooIncredible November 3, 2013

    I’m sorry but she’s as basic as they come. She gets an A for effort.

    • Lamb4Life November 3, 2013

      She got my A….. a·bys·mal !!!!

      😆

  20. Lady Gaga November 3, 2013

    Artpop is on life support….375k.

    Save me….

  21. HOTSTUFF November 3, 2013

    Great words Gag ! but the problem is when you listen to her album Artflop , you end up asking yourself what the hell is she talking about ?!…lmao she’s really on #DOPE

  22. Convent Gurl November 3, 2013

    I listened to it today and I skipped most of the songs after one minute, then I listened to it entirely just so I could have an opinion about it but I can’t with this woman, the album sounds like a mess, mainly because she over sings every song and those lyrics are cringe worthy, specially the ones for Venus “Don’t you know my ass is famous?” I mean, is that all you could come up with Lady Gaga? and yes, we know her ass is famous for stealing other artists’ works and always playing the victim -_-

    @Suicide Blonde, if you are reading this, please comeback, i came to this site just to talk to you, a post like this would be heavenly with your presence, don’t take me as a crazy stalker, i just want to have a conversation with you, i should have comment when you were still here but i was afraid, now i’m not afraid and you’re not here, sad.

  25. Mary Mary Why You Buggin’ November 3, 2013

    Don’t get mad at Gaga because you stan for people who can’t string two sentences together or can’t actually talk about their music because they don’t have anything to do with its creation.

    Awesome interview!

  26. Monsters Love Artcopypop November 3, 2013

    1) MANiCURE- I Hate My Self Joan Jett
    2) Artpop- Love You Like Love Song Selene Gomez
    3) Aura- In My Arms Kylie Minogue
    4) Fashion- Holiday Madonna

  27. DOSSOME November 3, 2013

    It feels like Deja Vu all over again…Remember Erotica,Invincible,Glitter,Damita Jo,Just Whitney,Bionic and now Artpop???Great pieces of art thrown under the bus because at the moment it was TRENDY to hate the artist…Remember how Madonna’s Erotica was labelled flop despite the hits,or how Invincible was a flop despite selling 9mill ww,or how Mariah’s loverboy was a flop despite peaking at no.2 and becoming the bestselling single in America in 2001???Now it’s Gaga’s turn and as usual the kids will line up to hate …Being the grown ass man that i am,i’ll buy Artpop since it’s her best album to date and the music is refreshingly awesome

    • Monsters Love Artcopypop November 3, 2013

      bad taste…growing up has nothing do with age…it is all about IQ.

      🙁

      • DOSSOME November 3, 2013

        And yours is low…now exit my reply

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare November 3, 2013

      Wonderful to see not all of us are blind.

      This is PRECISELY what’s going on.

    • Grow Your Brain Put More Fertilizer November 3, 2013

      Whoever says Artpop is a good album should be a second-hand car dealer or antique store supervisor.

      😆

    • *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* November 3, 2013

      I will Buy it too, I’ve been dealing with online hateful h*** since rihanna said “pon” in pon de replay.

      the Album is Great, why i should hate on her ? yes i am so tired of her clown antics, but the music is good IMO.

      • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare November 3, 2013

        Yes! During Rihanna’s ‘Rated R’ era, people should have been paying attention to her music. That album is a pop masterpiece. Instead, they were too concerned with Rihanna the person.

        The herd mentality was thick during that era.

  28. JER November 3, 2013

    Lady Gaga’s biggest fan is Lady Gaga.

  29. Yolo November 3, 2013

    She brought nothing new to the table just rehashing and stealing ideas.

  30. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 3, 2013

    These excuses though, it is “trendy” to hate Gaga? Oh no, because by Gaga releasing generic trashy music and attention seeking the most has got nothing to do with it right?

    And let’s not forget stealing right, but no, it is trendy to hate her.

    *flips magazine page*

    • Yolo November 3, 2013

      Eminem uses barely any promotion, social media, and no music video, and he’s number 1 on the charts. Wanna rethink your strategy @ladygaga?

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare November 3, 2013

      All you have to do is look at the historical arch in pop music and you’ll see it’s the same story. No excuses there. It’s fact.

      • Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 3, 2013

        Oh so the silly antics like running around naked in the forest and the generic horrible nail on chalkboard noise she calls music has got nothing to do with it?

        Oh and let’s not forget stealing from other artists, oh no, it is just the “pop” trend.

        Come with something more concrete because that excuse doesn’t make sense.

      • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare November 3, 2013

        You blame HER because Marina Abramović wanted to work with her? Because Gaga agreed to experience the Abramović method that started in 1978? You hate her for that?

        Stealing? Anybody with half of a brain knows that she’s heavily influenced by David Bowie and Grace Jones. She has stated this plenty of times.

        And as a longtime Madonna fan, I never bought the charge and I never will. Now, Carl Bean is a completely different story. That, however, is still not enough to justify what’s happening to Gaga.

        It’s CLASSIC herd mentality. If you can’t see it, oh well.

      • Grow Your Brain Use Fetilizer November 3, 2013

        Oxford dictionary= steal
        Gaga dictionary = influence, tribute, pay homage & “create”.

        🙁 🙁 🙁

  31. Think ! November 3, 2013

    Of course Gaga is lying !!!

    People who create art won’t go telling or reminding others…every month, every year in every magazine or media.

  32. Loyalty November 3, 2013

    Oh please. Gaga is not the only one who receives substantial hate. But all of the sudden, the ‘hate’ for Gaga becomes comparative to legends *rolls eyes*. So biased. People are just bored with her antics this era because she has not lived up to expectation. That’s all it is.

    • Shaquanna November 3, 2013

      she is just bla bla bla…no substance. Her art is only attractive to people like John Vidal, Cake Like Lady Gaga, Dodome, Dildome…..

      😆

    • Anita Faker November 3, 2013

      Let the church say amen!!!

  33. NEXT ????????? November 3, 2013

    END OF DISCUSSION. GAGA, STFU !!!

  34. Shaquanna November 3, 2013

    If you’re stressed, you get pimples.
    If you cry, you get wrinkles.
    So just poop and get Artpoop.

  35. Ocean blue November 3, 2013

  36. Angela Cheng November 3, 2013

    Lady Gaga fans are threatening to behead my daughter, r*** my mother, and make me have oral s** with a Black man with smelly penis.

    🙁

  37. Tisha November 3, 2013

    And yet her ‘art’ plays in car commercials with f****** hamsters.

    This b**** is wearing thin so damn fast I’m not sure she’ll make it to the end of the year.

  38. Sisqo is a Legend November 3, 2013

    Flopause,Flop What you Want,Penis and Joke= FartFlop

  39. Ftheignorance November 7, 2013

    So, lets talk about the real reason people hate Gaga it’s because she is unusual to people who compare her to every other mainstream female artist of the last 20 years. Her weirdness is the reason why people began to notice her in the first place so if you don’t like it STFU and and ignore her. To all these individuals who have pictures posted of artist such as prepackaged pop star girls like Britney Spears and Beyonce please explain to me how they are the epitome of originality every single and every image they have ever been apart of is copying off of someone who came before them. How many of these girls have ever lifted a pencil to contribute a full verse or song to there own albums let alone someone else’s.

    • Chris Brown Beat Me November 7, 2013

      Her “weirdness” is a facade, something she forces to make herself “interesting” somewhat. She’s a poseur. I thought that’s public knowledge.

  40. Chris Brown Beat Me November 7, 2013

    This is JUSTICE FOR BIONIC right here, what’s happening to her.

  41. Rebecca Black = Queen of Pop November 7, 2013
