Lady Gaga
Posted 6/27/11 , edited 6/27/11
So, a lot of attention has been focused on Gaga lately due to a couple of things:

1. The whole Hatsune Miku cosplay thing.

2. Lady Gaga being sued due to profiting from those bracelets when the whole money was s'posed to go to charity.

There's a lot of debate about it in the pages above. on the comments below So I guess for a proper debate and discussion it would be best to start a thread about it.

So what do you gals and guys think of what has been reported?

Oh yeah keep this clean.

Here's a little something I did for the lolz.

Okay, I have no problem with the Hatsune Miku thing. She can cosplay whoever the hell she wants. But the second issue... Wow I'm so disappointed if it's true. She is already making a lot of money with her new album "Born This Way" (oh wait, it was sold for 99 cents right?) and was Forbes ' number 1 most powerful celebrity. Why would she pocket some of the money that's supposed to help Japan in its recovery? I just don't get it. It's either she's being greedy, or none of this is true. I'd like it if it's the latter.

Shame...

EDIT: LMAO @ this picture

All I'm going to say for now is that I enjoy some of her songs. I'm about to leave for class so I can't debate in detail yet. Don't worry, I'll be back. I love to debate.

It would've been quite the moral highlight if she actually gave ALL the funds to the relief charity, but she didn't. Which has probably left the stigma of being either greedy or two-faced. Or both. Unless there are documents saying she was going to get a percentage of the profit, which I doubt it is, she can be tried for this.

That's all I really have to say, I'm already not too happy with her right now. Considering how eye-gouging her 'cosplay' is. I seriously can't believe she even tried to do Miku.

I think the image you edited is relatively apt, considering.

If lady gaga is doing this for publicity, I think it worked.
Posted 6/27/11
I saw her on the Paul O' Grady show last week, she seems the most down to earth person in Pop and adores her fans. All the money she makes goes to House of Gaga which means she spends it on her costumes and shows. I don't believe everything I read about her. I'll bring up the meat dress for a second, just coz her quote was awesome on the Grady show. She said "Well what's the difference between that and leather?" the animal rights people shot her down for cruelty when infact she was just making a bold statement. The media likes to twist things up. All I'm saying is, she was on air Live for a whole hour and a half and from what I gather, she's too nice to do something like this. Maybe she isn't entirely in control of the money she makes and where it goes, she only has to put her stamp on it to sell it.

Care to elaborate on that? I did say keep this clean so I urge you not to call anyone morons because their view differ. I've read your comments on the pages where the articles are and I understand you're upset.

Here is the question I must ask you regarding this topic.

A user said to someone in the comments section (regarding the bracelet scandal)

"Read the story carefully. If she is personally making a profit from this, she is as responsible as the merchandising company"

And you replied

"YOU should read carefully"

So what is it you meant by that? I think this is a fair question considering I'm asking for people's takes on it. By the way I'm neutral on this, I'm not a fan of Gaga but I don't dislike her nor do I have a problem about the whole "cosplay" thing (I'm not a fan of Hatsune either). It's an honest question and I started this thread because I'm interested in people's views. I'm not attacking you.

I LOL-ED at the pic.
Apparently, they say she's $3M in debt due to the total cost of all those crazy eye-opening costumes she wore on her latest tour.

Really? Well I won't believe until she confirms it herself. And by that I mean, an interview.

If this whole situation with the charity is true, than I've lost the little amount of respect I had left for her. Also, though she tried to pull off Hatsune Miku, she failed completely

I've heard all sorts about her since 2009, I remember seeing her on a show over here called Friday Night Project back then, she was nobody, people were hearing "Just Dance" for the first time ever on this show. Before that she was just a delightful character sitting on the couch talking to Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins, she was normal. Now she's got world domination people are just stirring shit like crazy and have been for ages. I still adore her music, she's a talent and a half and her personal life has no effect on my music tastes. Just like when Chris Brown beat the crap out of Rhianna, I still think "Deuces" is one of the best R&B songs ever made.
