You Left Me Speechless So Speechless

I'm leery about a superstar who is on tour for much of the year and is gracious to accommodate so many interviews into her busy schedule as Lady Gaga does, whether she will be able to continue to write songs on the same level that she has been doing. Oh, about the eclectic outfits that Gaga wears which have become established as her trademark, why that's strategically to turn the tables on the media. The media and the paparazzi like to circle famous celebrities like sharks and sensationalize their slightest mistakes. Hey, who the heck cares an iota whether Britney Spears forgot to wear panties or what shade of pink had she worn them. However, the impact of tabloid journalism is benign against the persona of Lady Gaga for once the public gets an eyeful of her latest fashion du jour du outrageous, juicy gossip ain't nothing but puny in comparison in the minds of the public. Seriously, have you ever heard of a single juicy gossip about Lady Gaga. It simply would not work for they who earn their living through those means. Paraphrasing the lyrics, "Why you so speechless .... so speechless, Oh-oh ...." Avant-guarde fends of tabloid, so to speak. (Originally the foremost part of an army advancing into battle or the advance guard now avant-guarde represents a pushing of the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm and the status quo in the cultural realm). I'd be replete not to mention that the finest thing about Lady Gaga is that she never misses an opportunity to express her gratitude of her fans. And by her own account, Lady Gaga is a performer not a celebrity. Or 'the performer,' not 'the celebrity.' The downfall of celebrities is that they eventually believe their own krep then attain metamorphosis through propofol like Michael Jackson aka pervert or throw away a $2 million a week paycheck like Charlie Sheen. You poor bastards. Turkeys. That said, I don't know for sure whether I should watch Lady Gaga's 'A Very Gaga Thanksgiving' televised on ABC. I still think the format is restrictive or inhibiting, take your pick, in respect to Lady Gaga's style of artistic expression.

Gosh... Ron... I'm so out of it, I don't think I've even heard one of her songs.

Cloudia- you monster.

Kay- Lady Gaga's songs are opera in comparison to other pop singers. There's Act I followed by Act II and so forth on many of her own compositions. The tempo shifts abouts in an entertaining way. On stage, frequently reminiscent of a Bette Midler (from Roosevelt H.S.) extravaganza. That's primarily why I feel a tv format for a major holiday is not her cup of tea. Dunno yet, of course. Milder song here and discussing handling fame on The View here.
