ok, Paglia was hot shit 20 years ago, but wtf? I mean, seriously, is she ranting 'get off my lawn' right now?

First, she rants that Gaga is faking her age (who the fuck cares? that reeks of pettiness and jealousy, not a criticism)

Then she is all 'feminism and sex are dead' and sounds like a bitter old lady.

The Gaga of world fame, however, with her heavy wigs and giant sunglasses (rudely worn during interviews) looks either simperingly doll-like or ghoulish, without a trace of spontaneity.


uh... ok...
Quote:
Furthermore, despite showing acres of pallid flesh in the fetish-bondage garb of urban prostitution, Gaga isn’t sexy at all – she’s like a gangly marionette or plasticised android.


first, wft? fetish-bondage garb of urban prostitution? biased much, Camille? And second, Gaga, last I checked (and as I posted here a year ago) isn't in it to be sexy, any more than Marilyn Manson is. She has a schtick, and that's it. But it's not sex.

A feminist should be happy a woman is making it without relying on sex.

Quote:
Going off to the gym in broad daylight, as Gaga recently did, dressed in a black bustier, fishnet stockings and stiletto heels isn’t sexy – it’s sexually dysfunctional.


:eek:
Quote:
Compare Gaga’s insipid songs, with their nursery-rhyme nonsense syllables, to the title and hypnotic refrain of the first Madonna song and video to bring her attention on MTV, Burning Up, with its elemental fire imagery and its then-shocking offer of fellatio. In place of Madonna’s valiant life force, what we find in Gaga is a disturbing trend towards mutilation and death…


Again, because Gaga is the Thanatos, not the Eros. Jeez, Camille, get it straight.

And, what the fuck? What offer of fellatio? Then shocking? I had to listen to that song twice to hear it. 'down on my knees' is not an automatic sign of blow jobs when she is begging him. It's a sign of... begging.


Quote:
Gaga is in way over her head with her avant-garde pretensions… She wants to have it both ways – to be hip and avant-garde and yet popular and universal, a practitioner of gung-ho “show biz”. Most of her worshippers seem to have had little or no contact with such powerful performers as Tina Turner or Janis Joplin, with their huge personalities and deep wells of passion.


oh, sigh.

to read the rest of her dreck, you have to subscribe. Sorry and no thanks. And Camille, I'm done with you and your grumpy whining.

Here's a response to the same article.

So, Camille, go back to your rocker and pretend you changed the world.

Yah. The first couple of minutes especially.



She's trained, talented and has a good business head.

That's dangerous. Especially if you are a woman.

(no wonder people think she is a man. No woman can be all three of those things without having too much testosterone--- right Hex?)
