Because Gay's Are Sick of Her Too

This group of men are not impressed nor happy with Stefani appointing herself as the "face" of the Gay and Lesbian community.  Check out their blog on tumblr to read what they have to say.  

Stefani, with all her cheerleader rah rah for gay rights, she is actually enforcing stereotypes of gay men in particular.  

Don't be a drag, just be a queen

Gaga Pays "Homage" Once Again - Ripping Off Concept of Madonna Sex Book

She just doesn't know when to quit.  Stefani just finished reading page 22 of the Madonna Playbook and she is now collaborating with photographer Terry Richardson.  Grand Central Publishing just announced that they will be putting out a photo book of Stefani and her everyday life.  Apparently nothing will be off limits.  Not that it's ever stopped her before.

The book will contain of 350 black and white and color images to be shot over the next 10 months.  The book is scheduled to be released November 22nd, just in time for the holiday season.

Sound familiar?  Back in 1992, October 21, Madonna released her controversial "SEX" coffee table book to accompany her album "Erotica".  The release date was to coincide with the Christmas season.

Madonna's book contains a series of black & white and color photographs that are very sexual in nature and soft core pornographic.  While Stefani's book won't use sex as it's main theme, the concept is the same.

While there is nothing wrong with releasing a book like this but when you add this to the long list of other things she's copied from Madonna and other artists, you can't help but be suspicious.  Only little monsters will think it's earth moving and so brilliant. 

When is Stefani going to be held accountable for her actions?  When is she going to fully absorb that she is constantly being accused of ripping off this or that artist?  But please, go ahead Stefani.  All that you're doing is further alienating people from you.  That will just make you go away faster.

Oh, and allow me to point out that Madonna released her book 10 years after hitting the scene.  Stefani is trying to condense all that Madonna has done into 3-4 years.  Burn out baby, burn out.

Survey By AskMen.com Reveals Celebrities Men Are Most Sick Off

AskMen.com conducted their 2011 Great Male Survey on more than 70,000 men from the U.S.A., U.K., Canada and Australia, asking them a variety of questions from relationships, women, movies, etc.  One question was which celebrity are they most sick of hearing about.  Looks like Stefani made it to No.1 again.

The poll reveals that Stefani/Gaga is the female celebrity men are beyond over.  The list looks like this:

29% Lady Gaga
25% Sarah Palin
17% Kim Kardashian
15% Lindsay Lohan
3% Kate Middleton
3% Pippa Middleton
8% None of the above


When you slice it up, 42% of men in the UK are sick of Kim Kardashian, 30% of American men are done with Sarah Palin and 34% of Australian men and 32% of Canadian men are finished with Stefani/Gaga.

HBO Monster Ball Special Rips Off Madonna's Truth or Dare




The kingdom of my fans?  What. The. Fuck.

If Stefani wins the Emmy for this, she should give it to Madonna.

Who's The Copycat?


Ok, so truth is, I can't stand Christina Aguilera either but there are some uncanny similarities in this video to shrug off as a coincidence.

Stefani is five years younger than Christina and Britney and you just know she listened to their music in the not too distant past and I bet she was a huge fan.  Stefani will never give them credit though because it's obvious she doesn't want to be lumped in the same category as them.  Stefani desperately wants to be the next Madonna and have the same impact as she has twenty plus years later.  Stefani, do you know what happens when you burn the candle at both ends?  It burns out faster.  Snuff!

Katy Perry Can't Even See Gaga In Her Rearview Mirror Anymore

Stefani buying her own CD's, Born This Way, at Best Buy.

Stefani must be ripping the blue hair off her crotch with her bare hands!    While Born This Way is nominated in the Best Female Video category, she fails to do a full sweep or score as many has Adele and Katy Perry.

Stefani has two more nominations in Best Art Direction and Choreography.  That's like having your film skipped over at the Oscar in the Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay categories but getting a nomination in Best Sound Editing.

I guess the "album of the decade" didn't quite make the cut this year.

Me personally, I hope Adele takes it.  I barely know any of her songs but from what I heard and read, she fucking deserves. She can sing and it's "her", a real, human, non gimmick, person who's killed it this year.  No 0.99 cents here.

Foster The People rock and they should definitely take Best New Artist.

Gaga Responds To Better Midler

Gaga has responded to Bette Midler's claim that she copied the mermaid in a wheelchair routine.  

"(It was) not (a Midler tribute) in the beginning... because I didn't know that she'd done (it), but I do now and I think it's great. Obviously I feel connected to women in theatre and women from the past.

"Maybe we're just cut from the same cloth. I couldn't hop around in that tail so I just stuck myself in a wheelchair. All I'll say is that I... admire her and find her to be one of the most brilliant and incredible performers, so that's all I'll say." 

Gaga clearly is being extremely patronizing.  If she is so connected to women in theater, she would be educated and would and should know about Bette's routine.

She also could have had a mermaid costume that had a cut out for her feet which would be hidden by the tail allowing her to walk upright in the costume.  There are just too many accusations and very similar styles in a lot of what Gaga does, for them to simply be shrugged off as a coincidence.  Or to claim ignorance as she does in regards to Better Midler.

Gaga is the perfect example of someone that the comment "trying to invent the wheel" would be appropriately directed to.  It's been done, and aside from blind flop monsters, everyone else is aware of it.

Better Midler's last tweet to Gaga was , let's drink this over at the Emmys in September. Fabulous mermaids can coexist!"

I hope that drink Better is referring to ends up in Gaga's face after she throws it at her.

Down Under, Adele Is Still On Top


Even with all the gimmicks, hype, manufactured persona, little monster Gaga feeding frenzy, surprise visits at Gay nightclubs on Oxford St., over the top sexual shows with her dancers feeling her up on stage, ridiculous costumes that just scream "Look at me!!", Gaga still cannot top Adele in Oz. 

Gaga's 6 day visit Down Under to promote Born This Way did help her sales and it also helped boost Born This Way to the No. 2 spot on the ARIA charts (Australia's music chart).  It even helped shoot her single Edge of Glory to No. 6 from No. 22.  One has to ask though, why was it at No. 22.

That's easy.  It's called hypeI remember I went to see Alanis Morrisette once only because I had a friend working her tour and the tickets were free.  I was seated 2nd row from the stage, a damn good spot.  I should tell you I cannot stand Alanis' music but after the show, a small part of me kinda liked her.  I was feeding off the energy of her fans at the show and seeing her up close on stage.  After about 3-4 days, I went right back to not thinking of her at all.  

Same thing here with Gaga.  Her visit created an energy that was infectious.  It spread, but like all viruses, it will go dormant once again.  

Want proof?  Adele is still No. 1 Down Under.  Gaga's gimmicks and shenanigans still was not able to knock powerhouse Adele out of the No. 1 position.  Adele prefers the "less is more" approach.  She has been quoted "I think it's shameful when you sell out. It depends what kind of artist you wanna be but I don't want my name anywhere near another brand. I don't wanna be tainted or haunted," she said earlier this year.  Adele has also refused to allow her songs be attached to a product or advertising campaign.

Even though Gaga is embarking on a huge world tour in 2012 which includes stops in Australia; Aussie concert promoters keep Adele at the top of their list of artists they are dying to sign to tour Oz.  

She's reportedly hesitant because of a fear of flying.

Bette Midler Not Impressed. Calls Gaga Out.

The Divine Miss M has spoken!  On Twitter.  She tweeted three tweets directed at Lady Xerox calling her out on the mermaid in a wheelchair routine.  Gaga clearly copy and pasted Bette's routine that she's been doing since the 80's.  This isn't the first time that Lady CrapGa has been accused of ripping off other artists and their routines.

While Bette's version is a more upbeat, happy mermaid, Gaga thinks she can get away with theft by making her mermaid a more dark, Gothic and somber mermaid with a more "Joan Crawford - Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?" vibe.  No dice CrapGa.

If her little flop monsters would just take their noses out of Gaga's ass for 5 min and do their research, they would see the evidence is undeniable.  However, I'm sure they will rationalize it to themselves. 

I resized this screen shot so that flop monsters can get a good view of what Bette is saying.  





To my readers, please share this, google+ this.  Let's get the word out.  I've googled "Bette Midler" and there are barely any stories about this.  Help me to make sure that Gaga's antics are seen for what they really are. Thank you deeply.

Gaga Copies Bette Midler's Mermaid In A Wheelchair Routine



Well, Gaga does it again.  In Australia, Gaga offended scores of disability groups by rolling herself on stage in a wheelchair dressed as a mermaid.  Aside from offending people, she also demonstrates, yet again, how unoriginal she is and how she rips off other artists.  "Delores Delago" is the name of a character that Bette Midler created as an on stage act.  

Milder recently resurrected her character during her long time running Vegas show "The Showgirl Must Go On".  The show debuted on February 20, 2008 and played its final performance on January 31, 2010 after a two year run and surprise, surprise, here is Gaga once again jacking off an act that's been done.

Doesn't Gaga read or hear about the stuff being said about her?  Not just from my blog but all over?  You would think she'd tread lightly.  This girl has so much nerve.  Keep it up human photocopying machine.  It's all down hill from here.

Just like we have internet trolls, Gaga is a music industry troll.  Like I asked before, how do you like your eggs Gaga?

Move Over Gaga, Facebook Has A New Queen



Facebook has a new queen: According to famecount.com, a social media statistics service, Rihanna passed Lady Gaga in total fans sometime around 12 P.M. EST on Thursday, July 14th.

With roughly 40,516,728 fans as of this writing, Rihanna's new accolade brings her one placement closer to the Facebook fan champ, hip-hop artist Eminem, whose page has been 'liked' an impressive 43,225,888 times. For some perspective, Rihanna had just over 5,000 Facebook fans one year ago.
She's come this far, will Rihanna make it all the way to the top? Apparently, not without a fight. In response to the news, Lady Gaga fans took to the Twittersphere, demanding that people, "unlike Rihanna on Facebook".

My own two cents:  Looks like Gaga taught her monsters well!  They're learning to cheat and using trickery to keep her on top.

Born This Way Sales Sink Even Further

Would you like your eggs scrambled or sunny side up?  How about fried? 

HollywoodNews.com: Reports of revived CD sales are highly exaggerated. According to the numbers collected on hitsdailydouble.com, last week is pretty bad for the music industry. Summer used to be a time when kids had to have their music. But last week the top 10 totaled less than 500,000 copies sold of anything. Lady Gaga‘s “Born this Way” was down to 30,000 units. That’s not enough to pay for anyone to carry her rapidly cracking egg.

The number 1 CD, Beyonce‘s “4,” made the grade with a mere 111,000 copies. The only bright spot was Adele, as usual, clocking in at number 2 with 79,000. I’m not sure if anyone’s explained this to her, but Adele is the record business right now. Other than Adele, who’s also selling copies of her “19″ album (yes everyone’s just numbering their CDs for titles–this generation can’t remember titles like “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys” or “Songs in the Key of Life”– the next hit album will be called LOL) everyone else is at a standstill. Both new generation “American Idol” (Scotty McCreery) and old (David Cook) are just about tied with 13,000 copies each.

To his credit, Barry Manilow sold 10,230 copies of a CD full of original material on a small label and finished at number 36. The next big release, fingers crossed, will be country singer Blake Shelton this week. But other than that, it’s not such a promising release schedule.

Lady Xerox Copycat Picture of the Day

Gaga out in Sydney two nights ago and Bjork's cover for "Crystalline”, the first single from Biophilia from JUNE 2011Aside from the head dress and the color, the dress is the same.  Look at the material and design.  Gaga didn't waste any time.  Come to think of it, it seems like Gaga is trying to distance herself from the Madonna comparisons by looking toward the direction of Bjork.  Bjork is authentically avant garde and eccentric.  She never tried to shove herself down the public's throat with her weirdness and style.  I mean that as a compliment to her.  In fact, Bjork shuns fame.  It's not what she's about so it's accurate to say she doesn't try too hard.  Gaga on the other hand is a desperate poser and that's just laughable.

Excuse Me!!??

Little monsters all over the world are flipping out because they are accusing Katy Perry of copying Gaga's mermaid idea.

Well, isn't that rich!!  They're accusing someone of copying Gaga!!  I repeat someone copying Gaga.
Did I hear that right?  Wait.........let me take the ear condom off my ear............Ok, that's better.   Yep, I heard right.  Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!!

Katy Perry took a picture of her planking wearing a mermaid costume on the set of her new music video.  Gaga's original theme for her Edge of Glory video involved mermaids but after creative differences with the director, the video was changed.  Rumor has it that the next video for her next single will be mermaids. 

Now flop monsters are pissed that Katy's doing it.  I don't know if Katy deliberately used the theme or not, but if she is taking a swipe at Gaga by giving her a dose of her own medicine, I say good for her.  

How does it feel Gaga, to have someone rip you off like you've ripped off others?  Not too good huh, to have an idea taken from you either?  I'm sure Loli Lux understands how you may feel. 

Oh right, Katy's just paying "homage" to Gaga.

Gaga In Australia, Says She's Born This Way

During an interview on Aussie television show A Current Affair, Gaga tells host Tracy Grimshaw that she was "born this way".  What does she mean?  Well, the get ups, wigs and other crazy hair, just her overall eccentrics, and egocentrics.   Gaga, at every opportunity possible, has to reaffirm to the world that "This is me.  This is who I am.  I was born this way". It's really starting to sound lame, using the term "Born This Way" at every given chance.  It's also starting to sound like the only person she's trying to convince is herself. 

Enter Lady Gaga quote here:  "I'm telling you a lie in a vicious effort that you will repeat my lie over and over until it becomes true" 

Interesting.

When Rob Fusari first met Gaga, she was a pretty normal looking Italian lass from New York.  She looked more like a cast member on Jersey Shore.  Long brown hair and according to some old friends, the craziest look Gaga went for was wearing suspenders. 

Gaga's main style of music was jazzy type ballads with her on the piano.  The clubby, Euro-pop dance music was a polar opposite of what she was all about.   Rob Fusari was searching for a rock type chick to front an all girl band with a similar style to The Strokes.  He thought he found that in Gaga. Then known as Stefani. 

When the female band idea didn't materialize, Fusari worked on convincing Gaga to give up on rock and roll and focus on dance music by telling her that her second rate Nora Jones act isn't cutting it.  This would mark the beginning of Lady Gaga. 

In fact, it was Fusari who gave her the idea for the name "Lady Gaga".  In a 2008 interview with MTV's Buzzworthy blog before The Fame's release, Gaga credits Fusari with her new name.  "My name, Lady Gaga, comes from the first producer that I worked with, Rob Fusari," she said. "I was playing a record for him one day in the studio called 'Again Again,' which is actually a B-side for the album, it's like this super-Beatles/Queen theatrical ballad. He said, 'God, you're so "Radio Gaga," ' and I thought that was funny. And every time I'd come into the studio he'd say, 'Gaga is here, Gaga is here! Gaga Gaga!' So it sort of stuck, and I tacked on the 'Lady' as a sort of ironic contrast to the crazy of the Gaga."

Enter Lady Starlight and thus began the transformation of Gaga's look. “Hello, hello Lady. I’m Lady Starlight. I’m a DJ. I want to help you make some great onstage fashions. First, a good idea is setting this can of hairspray on fire! And here are some disco balls.”  That was the very first thing Starlight said to Gaga when they first met through Akon.  

Starlight at the same time, probably introduced Gaga to whole new scene.  Eccentric club folks, colored hair, flashy clothes. I'm betting this was also the time she got really into the drugs.  Gaga was probably so enthralled by this scene and wanted to be a part of it and accepted by it so bad because it was more exciting than what she had before.  I get that.  As young people grow up and experience more, they change and experiment several times over the years.  Be it who they choose to hang out with, where they choose to hang out, the music they like, clothes they like and hair cuts they like.  But don't claim to be born that way when clearly you're not.

Fast forward to Gaga's interview in Australia.  She claims that due to the bullying she got in high school, she was afraid to dress the way she wants to dress, in reference to the way she dresses now.  She was afraid of being made fun of so she tried to be as normal as possible and that she wasn't brave.

OK, fine, that makes sense however, IF that were the case, wouldn't Gaga have had these ideas already and brought them to the table herself when she started recording with Fusari?  This idea and look of who she really is inside, how she was "born" would've already been there.  She didn't need Starlight or anyone to help manufacture a look and gimmick for her.

Gaga basically settled for a product and now that she's famous, is trying to peddle it as art and claiming to be original.  So now, all the monsters are buying it up and they will rip your face off if you try to show them otherwise.  Listen Monsters, Gaga was not "Born This Way", she was "Manufactured This Way".  Gaga is the last person who should be preaching this "be yourself"  ra ra sermon.  Stefani molded and shaped herself with the help of others to become the person we know today as Lady Gaga.  She has lost herself in her alter ego and I think she is really believing the lies she tells herself everyday.  

See Gaga quote above for a reminder. 

Gaga was not a weirdo in school.  Tell me, how can someone with long brown hair in a pretty normal green strapless dress playing jazzy ballads on a piano be considered weird?  I'm not buying the story.  

Looks like she has friends.  This doesn't look like a weirdo Gaga at all. Born this way?  I think not. She's actually very pretty here.

Gaga Obsessed With Weight. Could Be On Drugs.

It's no secret that Lady Gaga has used cocaine in the past.  She's admitted it on television and in interviews, honestly saying that she's done bags and bags of the funny white stuff.   Could she be using right now?

According to Ian Halperin, celebrity unauthorized biographer who's penning an explosive biography about her, she is. Halperin has been tracking Gaga's every move for the past year and heavily researching her. 

He says she is abusing drugs once again and it doesn't end there.  He also claims that she is completely preoccupied with her weight.  Ian says to Star Magazine “Those who have worked with her on tour reported to me that Gaga barely ate for weeks at a time to fit into her costume. She is sick and obsessed with her weight.”  Ian also says “One friend told me Gaga will stare at herself in the mirror for hours on end, analysing and critiquing her body. It’s an unhealthy obsession.”

Given that, the theory of Gaga being back on blow makes perfect sense.  Cocaine suppresses your appetite.  Basically, you don't eat and the thought of food is repulsive.  If you try to put the smallest morsel of food in your mouth while on cocaine, it's enough to make you throw up in your mouth.  Since you don't eat, you lose weight......and fast.
Gaga also has been go-go-go for a few years and you need energy to do that.  Cocaine also gives you energy.  I also think Gaga knows when to stop for a while to put on a bit of weight so that it's not too alarming.  I say that because her weight does fluctuate.   Right now, she looks pretty healthy.  But in the not too distant past, she looked very thin, cocaine thin.  

I don't think it's far fetched to think she's using again because she's used before....a lot. 
Halperin also shed light on her use of narcotics, stating that "her drug use started young".
"From heroin to cocaine and ecstasy, her friends say that she has done every drug conceivable. You name it she has done it," he said.

Its seems to me that Gaga has an addictive personality.  Addicted to fame, drugs, whiskey, adoration, media, pot, attention.   Gaga is as insecure as they come.  She behaves and says things in a way that she feels like she has something to constantly prove.  Being whether she can actually sing, doesn't lip sync on stage or is original.  Actually, during her HBO Monster Ball Concert Special, she screams it to the point where it's really kind of scary and reminiscent to the stand up comedy routines Sam Kinison would do.  Look him up if you don't know who I'm talking about.   Addictions help to cope with insecurities temporarily and unhealthily. 

Ian also says to Star magazine that the Mother of all Monsters is losing touch with reality, saying she is turning into a caricature of herself and not the 'Stefi' her friends once knew. 

Arrogance and Honesty

Can you guess which is "arrogance"?

I don't know about you but lyrics such as the ones outlined below aren't exactly deep or clever.
They are juvenile and very amateurish. How this song got to be so popular is beyond me. It's terrible.

"My mama told me when I was young, we are all born superstars".
"Don't be a drag, just be a queen".

Hardly words of a great songwriter.

Gaga Keeps Reporters Waiting

Annoyed reporters stood by at the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore for nearly two hours waiting for Lady Gaga to show up at her scheduled press conference.  

When she finally decided to show up, late, Gaga allowed only three questions - all of which had to do with Born This Way - and ended the conference in less than ten minutes after having the audacity to keep reporters waiting for as long as she did.

Gaga is in Singapore to do a private show to support SingTel's 2nd Anniversary of it's AMPed music-download service.

As she leaned back on her leather sofa, having her Cleopatra moment of grandeur, Gaga talks about Born This Way and calls it her baby.  She continues to talk about her Edge Of Glory video and childhood moments. 


The question reporters were waiting to ask was what would Lady Gaga have to say about the Fun Pack Song, the song penned for the National Day Parade that used the music to her big hit Bad Romance?


Before a reporter could even finish his question, he or she was rudely interrupted by one of Gaga's goons stating that Gaga would only take questions relating to her Born This Way album.


That did not go over well with the reporters, who have been waiting for her for ages.  Gaga did not respect their time nor their job.

Although Gaga is on a world tour to promote her latest album, she is in Singapore for the AMPed music download service.  Not once during her press conference did she mutter a single word about the service - a polar scenario of how she was in 2009 when the service first launched.

youtube Shuts Down Lady Gaga's Account Due To Copyright Infringement

Lady Xerox's official youtube account has been shut down by the website due to multiple, yes multiple, notifications (translate: complaints) of copyright infringement.

The only question I have is what the hell took so long?"  Did Madonna finally speak up and say enough is enough?  Or Jana Sterbak perhaps?  Maybe it was Porcelain Black, another artist Gaga may have deemed obscure for anyone to notice.

Or maybe it was Roisin Murphy.   Or Kylie Minogue?  Or Gwen Stefani?  Or Paulina Rubio (police line tape outfit).  Or Shakira?

I can only hope that whom ever complained to youtube isn't going to stop with youtube.  Gaga has been going too far and for too long with paying *cough* "homage" to certain artists.  It's time this nonsense stops and Gaga is held accountable.  There is nothing original about her.  She is one, big huge "Copy and Paste".

Who knows how long her youtube channel will be shutdown or if it will remain that way.  In the meantime, you can check it out right here!

Gaga Panda


Finally! I thought I was the only to notice this.  Time of India has too.  When Gaga was in Japan, as a sign of her love (or ignorance) for Japan, she paid tribute by painting her eyes to look like a panda bear. 

She says "I really like pandas. Pandas have paws, and I always tell my fans to put their paws up. I've been eating a lot of bamboo this week," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling the show.

The problem is that Gaga may have confused her love for Japan with neighboring China.  You see, the panda bear is a loved symbol of Chinese culture, not Japanese.  Gaga appeared on a Japanese television show dressed as a panda.  

She later added during the how that her dream is 'one day having panda babies'. Whatever that's supposed to mean.  

Then again, most of the stuff that comes out of Gaga's mouth is nonsensical gibberish peppered with big words to make her sound smart and educated. But I guess the "haters" just don't get her or her message.

A Brilliant Article on Mother Monster

I stumbled on this brilliant article on Lady Gaga on fierceandnerdy.com.  The author, Joshua Mauldin, puts it so eloquently on why he's a Gaga "hater".   Just because one doesn't like Gaga doesn't mean we are haters.  We just see through the facade.

The Court Jester of Pop: Is Lady Gaga Using Payola?

It sure seems that way to Peter Buchanan and other music industry insiders.   According to sources, Gaga's been on the decline and her PR team and Gaga are paying Rolling Stone Magazine to publish stories about her which praise her and make her larger than life.   

The latest would be crowning Gaga the new Queen of Pop of this generation.  Let's get real here though, the title spans from the years 2009-2011.  That isn't enough time to call it a generation.  Is this a blatant slap in the face for the other pop girlies from say 2000-2008?  There were others you know.

I'm not a fan of Britney either but she was a huge force to be contended with.  Britney was a mega pop star.  So why were the years 2009-2011 singled out to be relevant opposed to 2003-2006?  Did Gaga's team pay off Rolling Stone to pick those years where Gaga is at her strongest to try to cement her longevity in the music business?  Is Gaga getting desperate due to her declining sales and over exposure?  Can she tell that once where people saw her as the only one who would be able to match what Madonna has accomplished now see her as this parody?  Maybe.

Gaga is tanking.  She did not sell 5 million copies worldwide.  Honestly, I think she refers to the single Born This Way and not the album but she didn't exactly spell that out.  She knew people would assume she meant the album and chatter across the Internet would spread like wild fire.  Well, she got it.  Now everyone thinks the flop of an album is selling faster than hot cakes when the truth is that it isn't.

Look up the numbers and do the math.  There are countless articles about Gaga's decline in sales.  The sales were helped enormously by Gaga goosing the sales through Amazon's 0.99 cent deal.  Just for the record, I don't buy it that Amazon would allow themselves to lose millions by deciding to sell Born This Way for 0.99 cents, considerably less than what they paid for it.  That was just some made up la di da to make Gaga look good.  She goosed her sales over two days which aided the final over all sales amount.

Album of the decade, I think not.  Nor will she ever be The Queen of Pop.  The Court Jester of Pop is a more suitable title.
