Lady Gaga Talks Her Artistic Drive and Always Wanting to Be a Pop Star (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 27th 2011 12:44AM
'Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside'Lady Gaga has created one of the most unique artistic experiences with her pop star persona. It's so ingrained into how she chooses to be perceived that the outlandish costumes and even body-morphing face prosthetics are with her during any appearance, including her new documentary special, 'Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside' (Thu., 9PM ET on MTV).

It was something she developed even before hitting the big-time, and it's a vision she will not compromise. "I would work endlessly toward this experience with music, with songwriting, with performance art, and how I could bridge fashion and technology and pop culture into one performance and then make it commercial," she said.

It was certainly an ambitious and unlikely rise to success, but perhaps it's her determination to stand by her belief in her art no matter what. Even with radio stations saying they don't get it and people advising her it won't fly in the Midwest, Gaga stuck to her guns and rode them straight to the top of the charts.

Lady GaGa has a great voice, but really she is just starting to look crazy. I think she hates middle America values and is slowly working at pulling us down. Not sure what it is that drives her, but she should realize she needs to cool it or people in general will start to get tired of her need to shock and awe.

I love her. She is different. Some love and hate, so goes fame.

Gaga is cool, it's her act, her showmanship. She entertains crowds that pay $128 for a seat at her sold out performances. I don't particularly enjoy all the ghey crap but hey, when the crowds stop showing up, she'll move on to do other things.
Hell, I remember KISS being call radical and Knights In Satan's Service or worse, then, it was Ozzy's crowd who were met by bible fanatics handing out pamplets as they were leaving the concert. It's all just a game these entertainers just play a role. I mean, Ozzy plays a mumbling drugged out rockstar but in reality he's laughing all the way to the bank. If he was as doped out as he seems on camera, how would you suppose he remembers the words to his songs and even still comes out with new metal? You've been played like a fiddle if you buy into any of the hype!
If you don't care for anyones abilities, don't go watch or listen to em. Simple as that

Well, she got what she wanted. Now can we turn our attention to stories that deserve it--like the folks in Joplin, MO recovering from that tornado?

Gaga is a very talented singer. Yes she goes to extremes, yes she is a bit off the wall and yes I believe she is very insecure, that is why she wears the makeup, the costumes. She hides behind them. She also does not lip sync during her performances and writes her own music. If you watch an interview with her and really watch, you can tell she is nervous and insecure. She has a heart of gold, anti-bullying and is involved in charity.

I thinks she is a disaster. and always turn her off when I see her. but I have seen her enough to see her. Too bad that she has to act like she does.

True artists attract an audiance by walking on stage and demonstrating their great talent for singing. People like the gaga lady seem to realize that they have very little talent and try to attract attention to themselves by doing outragious stunts and wearing outlandish costumes
