Lady GaGa “Petite”…with a Secret?
Does she? Or, doesn’t she? “SHE”…is the one and only, 5’1”, “Lady Gaga!”
I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about, right? By now, it’s an age-old question given how fast rants, raves and rumors fly through the Internet! What I’m referring to is…GENITALIA!
Does, indeed, this remarkably-radical songstress have a pent-up-penis? Well, let’s explore that for a moment (not literally, or course!). If she did, would it change how amazingly talented she is, or how.
“Finally, there’s a singer/songwriter with an eccentricity and boldness that NOBODY could ever copy!?” (I feel like I haven’t seen one of these since the petite-pop-queen herself, Madonna!).
MADONNA “Bye Bye Bye”
My 18 year old daughter, Alex (who is a very talented photographer/writer/artist, as well as a “petite” fashionista, herself…proclaimed by “mom”), absolutely loves and adores this singing oddity, and will be seeing her in concert later this year (unfortunately, she won’t let me go with her *sigh*…I don’t think the “valley-girl-Mom” works in this type of crowd, LOL!). Although, you couldn’t find a more opposite persona for my daughter, I believe Lady Gaga shows her not only how extreme and idiosyncratic “art” can be, but that individuality, no matter how unconventional it is, can bring you closer to your own authenticity. As a ‘Mom,’ I’m “totally down with that!” While not to this extreme, I’ve always taught my kids to express themselves through their art, their clothing, their character and personality – but mostly, through their words and ideas of what being “unique” means to them! You can hear me saying, a mile away, “You only have ONE life…this is NOT a ‘dress rehearsal’…make it count!”
This “tiny-monster-petite” (would this be considered a “triple oxymoron?”), Lady Gaga, has had to deal with the question about whether or not she is a “he-she, transvestite, or a hermaphrodite” since her album launched in 2008. In looking for the correct answer, I found 458,000-opinions, beliefs, theories, ideas, judgments, rulings and conclusions – but, no final “verdict!” After the first 30 or so posts, I figured it’s all the same – CONJECTURE! But again, WHO CARES!? Who cares if she has a package below her “package?” As long as she is doing her job – entertaining, singing, songwriting, performing…PROVOKING! That’s all I care about!
I will never forget her bloody-theatrical presentation at the “MTV- Music Video Awards” this past year! This eye-popping-petite had me mesmerized, instantly, by her frenetic piano playing, her “like-a-virgin,” white-on-white, scantly-draped costume (I didn’t know whether to cover my son’s eyes…or my husband’s eyes *yikes!*), her prophetic song “Paparazzi” (because we all know this eventually happens to celebrities), and by her most amazingly-disturbing, freedom of artistic-expression and choice, thought-provoking, intense, “you’ve hurt me with your intrusion and rumors, but I will continue to do what I DO,” performance/statement, that I’ve ever seen! (WHEW!).
LADY GAGA “PAPAZZI” 2009 VMA’S
“Oh bloody hell!” one might say – I say, “BRILLIANT!” At this point, we saw Lady Gaga leaving the stool of the piano, singing with a cry in her voice and grabbing at her bodice. Then, all of a sudden, blood began to ooze out, dripping down…down…down, ALL THE WAY DOWN…THERE! To some, so I read, it was shocking, “satanic behavior,” as well as, a purge of a “suicidal skew!” (OH PULLEEAASSE people – GET A LIFE! Did ya not THINK that maybe it had something to do with tragedies that occurred due to the paparazzo chasing celebrities…for example; let’s just say, um, LADY (Princess) DIANA?)
To me, it was a cathartic journey sending me not only in several directions of meaning, guided by the faint indirect suggestions of my own senses, but leading me to hit the rewind button, over and over, and over, again! If an artist can make you do that, then clearly, (in my opinion), there’s a deeper message in that performance, in those words, and in the actions of the artist than just the shock-value of the “blood,” or whatever prop being used to convey that message – look DEEPER people! I’d like to see “Beyonce” do that! (I know…I know, we all know by now – Beyonce has LEGS, and sends a message to “All the Single Ladies,” but I’m SO bored with “those kind” of messages, aren’t you?).
BEYONCE “ALL the Single Ladies”
LADY GAGA has “reinvented” the second leg of her upcoming, 2010, North America “Monster Ball Tour,” starting June 28th at Montreal’s Bell Centre. This peculiar-petite promises to provoke a lot more emotions during her eccentric and atypical performances at 31 top arenas in the U.S. and Canada.
LET THE SHO…err…um, DEBATE…BEGIN!!
