Lady Gaga Nominated for “Great Whore of Babylon” Award By Artopia 444

Copyright 2011-3011 By Chase Kyla Hunter, All Rights Reserved.


Lady Gaga’s new release sounds so much like a 1980s era Madonna songs: “Like A Prayer” and “Vogue”  it’s practically a “knock off.”


Maybe Lady Gaga is the incarnate Great Whore of Babylon. She fits the biblical description in every way.

Lady Gaga needs to either come out of the closet, and come up with the courage to admit she’s gay, or stop pretending to be gay by including herself in gay culture by “self-nominated association.”

See http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/lady-gagas-born-pop-anthem-madonna-rip-off/story?id=12893489

There is nothing I despise more than make-believe gay people. The only reason Lady Gaga is all “out front” for gay marriage rights and other legal issues affecting gays and lesbians is because they fill the stadiums and the cash till for her CD releases. Lady Gaga is not gay, she won’t admit to anything more than “kissing a girl” [big deal ] in interviews, but when she gave her little speech in the link below, she refers to herself via implied semantics as part of American gay culture. Lady Gaga may have claimed gay people as “her people” but I sure as hell don’t claim her. She’s off the charts bizarre, and I think what she does is corrupting to young girls in America, far worse than anything Madonna ever did back in the 80s and 90s. Gaga is a cheap “Madonna knock off” and nothing more. It’s the most tedious thing in the world to have to sit through her “political speeches” where she claims herself as a leader of gay culture. Gaga has never known for a single split second in her multi-million dollar protected elitist world the kind of insults, suffering, presecution and hatred on a day to day basis that ACTUAL gays and lesbians go through. She has NO idea. Her politics have everything to do with keeping those stadiums filled with young gay paying screaming fans. She’s “gay positive politically” for the cash it brings in, and nothing more.

 

As a lesbian, the ongoing sell job, the “Lady Gaga American big media game show” intrigues me, but not in a good way at all. I see the whole thing [Gaga overkill in big media magazines, TV, Glee’s fawning over Gaga’s new music, the ongoing hype] as an out-picturing of the Illuminati owned media dream to flood Americans with ever increasingly depraved ideas, images, TV shows, music, people, and concepts until the average American no longer is able to discern fundamental good from evil. I’m quite sure that’s the goal of Illuminati owned mass media outlets, and has been forover 40 years now. Everything I observe in TV and pop culture media outlets confirms this theory.

Big Media has now really stepped up the debauchery factor by choosing Lady Gaga as their high priestess of visual disgust. I officially nominate Gaga as the personal incarnation of the Great Whore of Babylon. She fits the bill in every way.

I’ve had several interesting conversations recently with other gay friends about what most straight Americans think that the “gay lifestyle” is all about.It’s widely known that even though Gaga is sexually ambiguous, she enjoys her self-appointed role as “spokes woman” for gays, lesbians, transgendered and bisexual people.

Tragically, most every straight American I have ever met or talked to still mostly carries the typical notion that gay people are all petty, narcissistic, exhibitionists who parade around in next to nothing, watch the most trivial TV and films, talk Hollywood gossip incessantly, that they know more about fashion, make-up and pop culture than mostly anything else.

Why shouldn’t straight America feel this way? That’s been the classic Big Media and Hollywood portrayal of gays and lesbians for as long as I can recall, since way before the years of TV’s “Will and Grace.” Little or nothing is known of the millions of quiet, conservative, hard working, self effacing American gays and lesbians who would just as soon blend into the woodwork of American life, than to stand out.

They feel this way and live like other “normal” people do, for the very reasons that millions of other straight Americans are grossed out by gays!  Conservative gays and lesbians have NO desire to be affiliated with the screaming, parading, near nude, in-your-face Hollywood narcissist liberal versions of their peers that we are constantly being force fed by the media. I actually failed to be able to sit through one entire episode of “Glee” because, like 98% of pop culture TV, it just bored me to tears. I am friends with and know hundreds and hundreds of other gay men and women who feels exactly the way I do. We inwardly groan every time we have to witness yet another mindless episode of “Ellen”, which I also have a hard time sitting through, and we groan every time Lady Gaga comes out with yet another revolting music video where murder is glorified, or some other wickedness that she wallows in is peddled as “high art” to the brainwashed masses.

There is a secret subculture of gays and lesbians who refuse to participate in the present mass media orgy of:  “Don’t you just love those wild naked banal, and self obsessed, narcissistic gays?! Wow –  they sure know how to throw a party! I wanna be just like them!”

I personally cannot get far enough AWAY from that message and that mentality. I might represent about 70 to 80% of how gays actually feel about the way we are represented in the media, but I don’t really know. If anyone has recently done any studies on any of this mass media typecasting of me and my gay / lesbians fellows, I am not aware of it. But I was sick of Lady Gaga and her PR antics a year ago. I am way past sick of having her as a self appointed “mass media representative” for the American gay community.

Lady Gaga is just exactly the kind of bad press and disastrous PR that the American gay community DOES NOT need. It’s no wonder that many Christian fundamentalist still think that gays and lesbians are intrinsticly “demonic.” Lady Gaga, as a self-appointed “spokes person for American gays” is more than just a little bit actually demonic herself. She certainly creeps me out and I have no problem admitting that. Normalcy is sexy. And there is nothing “normal” about Gaga, her stage act, her opinions, her philosophies or her aura, in general. I find the woman more than a little bit on the “intrinsically psychotic” side of the spectrum.

Just between me and “she”, Lady Gag Me is so FIRED. She does not represent anything that I want to be affiliated with as a gay woman, or as a woman, period. I want nothing to do  with whatever it is that she represents, which I am pretty sure is just her own narcissistic self image and the advancing of her personal fortunes and media empire. Empty is as empty does Gaga.

Glee to Pay Homage to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

January 10th, 2011 12:23 PM by Free Britney

Tags: Lady GaGa, Glee

Move over, Justin Bieber. You’ve got Glee-ful company.

Ryan Murphy, creator of the Fox series, says a future episode will feature a single that hasn’t even been released yet: Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.”

How will Glee utilize her new song, due out in February (the album of the same name comes out in May)? It’ll involve Kurt’s nemesis, Karofsky.

BORN THIS WAY: Glee will devote an entire episode to the song.

“I love that that song is anthem,” says Murphy. “So I don’t really know what [it’s] going to be yet, but … we’re going to do a whole episode that’s about that song.”

While the full version has not yet been heard, Gaga recently dropped her pants (and the release date). The Lady also sang part of it a capella at the MTV VMAs.

Here’s that one verse re-mixed over a Gaga-esque beat …

Does anyone REALLY believe that Illuminati Priestess “Lady Gag Me” is big on family? I am laughing so hard I can’t see. Like all other Illuminati NYC media portals for high class trash, Vogue magazine thinks Americans are stupid enough to buy their lies.  On  the same internet page there’s a link to Lady Gaga posing nude.

Yeah, those are some really great “Kali Yuga-esque” “Satanic family values” that you are demonstrating for your young American preteen fans, Miss Gaga. I’m sure you are really proud of the “bare-it-all” message you are sending to millions of young pubescent girls.

“I am quite down-to-earth for such an eccentric person.” – Lady Gaga

With the release of “Born This Way” less than 24 hours away, Vogue officially released its March cover featuring the fabulous Lady Gaga this morning.

Despite her theatrical shows, outrageous getups, wild antics, obsession with blood and semen and so on, she says she’s a family-oriented good girl.

Lady Gaga Vogue Cover: 2011

The Italian-American New York native says she prefers to be called by her real name, Stefani, in the bedroom for example. She also cares deeply for her parents.

“I obsess about his health,” she said about her father. “I’m very Italian. I call him every day. I ask my mother if he’s been smoking. They are in their 50s now.”

“They still live in the same apartment on the Upper West Side,” Gaga tells Vogue. “Nothing has changed at all since I have become a star. I am a real family girl.”

“When it comes to love and loyalty, I am very old-fashioned.”

Just one of many reasons why we love her … opulent robes, pink wigs and all. Click to enlarge Vogue’s Lady Gaga pictures below and tell us what you think:

Lady Gaga: Nude, Skateboarding in Purple

If there’s one celebrity who could pose nude, wearing giant heels and skateboarding, and not shock us in the least by doing so, it would be Lady Gaga.

Said pictures, taken for Purple magazine by famed photographer Terry Richardson, should get people talking, though they’re pretty standard for Gaga.

We can only imagine the deluge of naked/revealing Lady Gaga pictures to come with Born This Way due out soon. Nude skateboard shot after the jump:

Lady Gaga Arrives At Grammys In An Egg

Stylist Nicola Formichetti tweets that the singer is in incubation on the red carpet.

By Jocelyn Vena (@jocelyn1212)

Lady Gaga’s arrival at the 53rd Grammy Awards had the world buzzing quite early on Sunday evening (February 13). The songstress, who premiered her new song “Born This Way” on Friday, hit the Grammys in a semi-see-through egg that seemed like something of an arty reference to that song’s title.

Check out pictures of Lady Gaga’s Grammy arrival here.

Outdoing the space-age Armani Privé getup she wore to last year’s Grammys, Gaga was in the egg as she emerged from a truck and was carried by four men in yellow boxers and dresses to the carpet.

Her Twitter page gave a bit of insight into what Gaga might be up to on Sunday. “This is Nicola, Haus of Gaga: Gaga is in incubation,” stylist Nicola Formichetti tweeted on the singer’s page. “Tonight’s performance is in collaboration with Hussein Chalayan and House of Mugler. X”

Formichetti also wrote about Gaga’s big arrival on his own Twitter account. “Grammys red carpet,” he tweeted. “Lady gaga wears Mugler by nicola formichetti. Womb by hussein Chalayan. Gaga’s pryers are in haus of gaga in collaboration with Mugler. My baby is been born.”

Lady Gaga is set to perform her new song live during the Grammy telecast. The singer is up for six awards on Sunday night, including Album of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Dance Recording and Best Short Form Music Video.

Lady Gaga Finally Crosses the Last Boundary Between Art, Narcissistic Personal Exhibitionism, and Fundamental Good Taste As A Music & Visual Artist

RE: Telephone: I watched it. I really didn’t enjoy it.

I actually clicked it off after the cafe mass murder aka group poisoning party, and went on with my day. So I don’t know how it ended and don’t really care.

I don’t think mock art video about poisoning a cafe full of people is remotely cute, chiche’, vogue, ‘fascinating’ or even mildly entertaining.

There are too many vulnerable boy and girl tweens in America who love and follow Gaga, who will just run right downstairs after watching this video, and try to act this stuff out their moms because they got grounded. Or whomever.

Then people wonder why their kids are acting like serial killers by the age of 11, 12, 13. Well why not? They have watched music videos like this one for 8 or 9 years as kids, and they literally can’t tell the difference anymore between good and evil. It’s all mixed up in their heads, just like this video, just like Gaga. Do visual artists like Gaga EVEN REALIZE that there are 20 or 30 million children in America, who watch music videos? Duh. WTF.

There is a line.

Not sure how one defines that “line” in society – but there is a place, a psychological and visual “zone of demarcation”,  where fascinating surreal themed visual art and muscial entertainment fades into explicit images of glorifying death, morbidity, horror, and crosses over from being entertaining into the realm of appalling. The disturbing visual imagery that gets blasted into your face watching this video is just not needed in the world. We see enough of that kind of imagery in real life everyday.

I found myself thinking that while watching the video…”Does the world really need this kind of imagery? Is this contributing anything truly GOOD to the world?” I decided:  Not. She goes. Good bye to Gaga, on this blog and my others.

I had earlier been just a teeny bit fascinated with Gaga artistically. Now I’m just routinely appalled by her, again and again. Maybe it’s just me, [and frankly, I don’t care if it IS just me], but incorporating mass murder into one’s “music “video art piece” really doesn’t interest me.

I am still on a visual quest, still looking for those other rare and precious artists who are actually CREATING BEAUTY AND UPLIFTING THE HUMAN SPIRIT. Gaga is not one of them. Most definitely not. In fact, there is something more than a little bit psychotic abut the art she creates, and psychotic is NOT sexy. Not to me anyway.

Her artisitc personal exhibitionism has finally passed over from “desperate to be seen and famous” into just “desperately sickening and utterly disgusting’.

Bye,  Gaga.

Oscars 2010: Sandra, Jeff – Congratulations! This Was Your Night.

All the Pretty Ladies, All the Sexy Dresses

From People magazine online….

We wait for the Academy Awards patiently every year, dying to see what catwalk confections our favorite stars will wear.

Ruffles ruled from Demi Moore’s Atelier Versace to Jennifer Lopez’s Armani Prive to Vera Farmiga’s Marchesa. And forget about black — it was all about golds like Cameron Diaz’s Oscar de la Renta and Sandra Bullock’s Marchesa and blues like Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Dries van Noten. As for hair, it was the year of the bun, perched perfectly on the glam heads of Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Richie and Miley Cyrus.
