FAME HOOKER

It's not very often I get super excited about new
music, being the 80's fan that I am! Yet I've
managed to surprise myself by becoming
a fan of the biggest "fame hooker" ever -
(her own words) Lady Gaga!

When she first appeared about three years ago
the music was OK'ish pop fluff but nothing
different to write home about. It also
seemed to be more about the wacky
outfits than the music.

With the new album "Born This Way" she
takes it up several notches - heavy electronic
beats and instantly memorable hooks
which start to swirl around in your
brain immediately.


Also having seen a few live performances
the thing that sets her apart for me from Her
Madgesty, Britney and other contenders for
The Queen Of Pop crown is the fact that
she can actually sing, no lip-synching.
And play the piano.


I'm especially loving the second single "Judas"
not only because it's a great song but also
because the video features the gorgeous
Rick Gonzales (I so would!)
(below with Gaga) as Jesus.




There are two ways to know you've definitely
made it: A) Madame Tussaud's makes
a wax work dummy
of you and B) somebody
can be bothered to do a full blown parody of
your songs. Here's a couple of good ones
