Wow. That's a compliment since that dude really knows music.

I've heard this, but I've never seen any proof. Unless by "knows music" you mean "knows how to rip off Madonna"

Gaga continued her praise of the singer, but admitted that she hasn't yet seen the Black's video,

ha.

To be cynical about it, that's part of the key to pop success: knowing what to steal. You're not in the business of deathless art, you're making bright shiny disposable music and trying to be perceived as "edgy". By those standards she is very good.

I dunno, I've seen her all over the damn internet for the last two weeks. If fame is your goal, she's doing something right.

A genius because her mom paid 2 grand to some company who gave her that shiatty abomination of a song to sing?

I've had it with all the haters. I like her now because people are being ridiculous over this whole thing

Carry on, sir.

Today: Lady GaGa calls Rebecca Black a genius.

Tomorrow: "Rowdy" Roddy Piper calls Casey Heynes to say, "Sweet moves, bro."

Saturday: George Lucas hires Ghyslain Raza to be Lucasfilm's chief fight choreographer.

And Sunday comes afterwards.

I'm Team Black in the same way that I'm Team Wiseau. I do worry about a couple of my friends who've said, "No really, it's a good song." I worry and walk away quietly.

It's probably not written for you.

I seriously can't think of a more contrived and boring pop star that Gaga. I don't care how "wacky" her drama club costumes are. Her music is completely uninteresting.

the 13-year-old is now making around $27,000 a week from iTunes sales and YouTube streams

Okay, so I have to know, do people actually make money from YouTube streams now? Or did people take that South Park episode a little too seriously?

Lady Gaga - Marry The Night:
Tonight I will return
all the fame and riches earned,
with you I'd watch them all be burned


I'm gonna marry the night,
I won't give up on my life.
I'm a warrior queen

I'm gonna make love to the stars
I'm a soldier to my own emptiness
I'm a winner

FTA the 13-year-old is now making around $27,000 a week from iTunes sales and YouTube streams.

Haha, good for her.

Still not as much as the Black Eyed Peas make for the same amount of lyrical talent, but it's a start.

She didn't actually wrote those lyrics, ARK music or whatever its called then. Also, isn't that place taking most of the revenue coming in?

FTFY. Lady Gaga is a pop culture crap factory and she knows it. She and her marketers have managed to convince millions of people that garbage is gold, and the idiots practically throw their wallets at her. She's Oral Roberts in a meat dress, vomiting the gospel of pop down the front of our Sunday best and bilking the rubes for as much money as she needs before the God of Obscurity calls her home. Ark Music Factory will do the same for Rebecca Black. More power to 'em. I wish I had their balls.

I consider Lady Gaga's music to be on the same level as her gimmickry: derivative and uninteresting. Your mileage may vary, to each his own, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

Good for Rebecca in doing something she enjoyed and making some money off of it. And good on her parents for supporting her in her endeavors.

The core audience of Lady Gaga is the internet generation. I would posit that a lot more people are enjoying her music for free than you may estimate.

Let me see if I have this straight:

- Tween girl, like ever tween girl ever born, aspires to be a famous singer, in between aspiring to be a fashion designer and a lawyer
- Tween girl happens to have parents willing to drop a couple thousand bucks in the hope they can turn their tween girl into a human cash register
- Tween girl is taken to a literal music factory, who write for her a horrible song, film her in a horrible video, and post it to the internet, in the hopes they might luck out and get in on this human cash register action

So clearly, the person to blame/hate for this is the tween girl? Come on Internet, you're better than that
 
2011-03-24 7:00:37 PM  
For someone so completely driven by an insatiable need for attention, its no surprise that Lady Gaga considers a 13 year old girl, who didn't have to work much at all to achieve massive publicity, a genius, but the true geniuses will be whoever can capitalize profits on the 2 minutes remaining of this girl's fame.

Its reminiscent of the "She Bangs" guy from American Idol. He attained instant fame because he was not only terrible, but unapologetic. I think he even cut an album, but by then, the clock had struck 15 and everyone had moved on.

Black's handlers better move much faster if they want to cash in on the fickle suggestibility of 14 year olds.

Here's the thing about that song. The music and melody of it are massively catchy, in that retarded way.

The lyrics are beyond stupid though. I've learned just under 100 words of Polish and it would be like me writing a song in Polish.


/gf is Polish

What evidence do you have that the girl's parents intent was to make money of their daughter?

Well at least she has that going for her. The Black Eyed Peas can dodge no responsibility for their lyrics.
 
2011-03-24 7:14:39 PM  
She's right. Black is this years Tay Zonday. It's a crappy song but thanks to the internet(most likely b-tards) she's making a tidy profit. Marketing and hype goes a long way, just look at the pet rock.

Terrified Asexual Forcemeat: That unfortunate black guy on the right looks like he accidentally stuck his head into a golf ball dimpler.


First off, do you think no one has noticed your little shenanigans? We're onto you.

Secondly, this situation with Gaga and Black puts me in a pickle. I can't go on telling the world how Ms. Black is far and away better than Gaga if Gaga is claiming she's a genius. Somehow, this delegitimizes my entire argument. Even if it doesn't.

Oh, well, It doesn't matter. There's no way of knowing right from wrong anyway. I just hope that I don't attract the attention of the Frankenstein Radio Controllers.
