The level of disrespect shown to Lady GaGa was immense.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do, Blue31.com

Yo-Landi Vi$$er in blackface. Is it racist?


Her being slathered in black skin paint is as "racist" as her being slathered in white skin paint, which happens for about as long in this video. So if you're going to make a racial thing of it (colour doesn't have to be a racist thing) then she's clearly being the opposite of racist.

This is the first Die Antwoord track I haven't liked. I'm not sure why, but I don't like it.

OK, I know they are trying to make a statement and earn money by shocking the public, but I don't know how anyone comes up with this without severe mental issues at the source, or mind-altering drugs.

I think the wild animals on the street were meant to poke fun at Americans' perception of life in South Africa.

The photographer was from South Africa. When I look up 'hyenas in Johannesburg' all i get are articles about dangerous hyenas that escaped from a zoo.

C'mon man, all of Africa can't be that crazy

"I strip down to my panties and wear wigs in public all the time, and I can't even sing."

You'll make someone special very happy doing that. I was never able to convince my wife to.

"She also plays instruments on her songs, even if she may not play them on stage all the time.

I know for a fact any piano you hear, she recorded."

I guess we just differ on what we want from a live performance. But I appreciate the skill level required to step in front of an audience and play an instrument or sing, live, without being able to fix a mistake. If I want something previously recorded, I'll go buy a C.D.

And that is also my point, that other musicians then have to compete against previously recorded concerts. It almost forces them to do the same, so that they can put on the same show.

auburnjunky - If she played more piano for her concerts, I'd probably be a fan. That is kind of my point.

She clearly does lip-sync, because much like the talented mister Bieber, she threw up on stage without missing a note (though she also kept dancing which is to her credit as a performer).

Finally, most church choirs have voices that can match lady Gaga's voice, especially in that video. My wife probably has more range and clarity in her singing. I've attended small college plays with singers that put me in awe. But most of them won't strip down to their panties and wear wings in public.

All I really said was her voice is so-so and I really don't think that is what made her famous. But if you want to think I'm just a judgmental non-nice individual, that's cool too.

zombunny - First, I wasn't very clear. I have almost no musical talent. I can probably still play Twinkle, twinkle, little star on a guitar, but that's about it. I meant I would post music that I think is good.

Second, I listen to music like metal and techno when I workout and run respectively. But I wouldn't classify most of it as good music. Still, I get your point. I guess I misunderstood thinking that you thought of this as modern masterpiece of musical art. I actually think it may have been Auburnjunky's post that it was "epic." that threw me off. So I probably did bash it a little hard. I still don't think they are very talented, but if they do something for you, then cool. Sorry I was mean.

"and lip syncing entire performances."

Oops. She doesn't do this.

"Obviously the recorded and digitally enhanced version sounds better than her actual live voice, and it completely changes the what a live musical performance is."

Doesn't do this either.

She also plays instruments on her songs, even if she may not play them on stage all the time.

I know for a fact any piano you hear, she recorded.

I dunno. You judge. Can she sing?

Auburn (cont.) - I think this ruins music for a similar reason. It just seems like a huge gimmick. Don't get me wrong, I used to like a lot of bands that had crazy stage antics. But back when, there wasn't this much digital processing. So if you got famous off of being crazy, but your lead singer couldn't sing or your drummer sucked, you would be found out to be a fraud. Now half the musicians are just as fraudulent as Milli Vanilli. But we just expect it.

Plus, as I said, I don't think they are that talented.

auburnjunky - You are right. It was a non-nice individual thing for me to do. I was honestly surprised that there was a reaction at all to my original comment, and I tried to defend my claim, because I still think it is true. I admit I was probably a jerk about it.

I think Lady Gaga unintentionally ruins music by dressing up like a peacock, having huge dance routines, and lip syncing entire performances. Obviously the recorded and digitally enhanced version sounds better than her actual live voice, and it completely changes the what a live musical performance is. I think she has done it to cover up her so-so talent, because she has even said all she ever cared about was getting famous. Still, she has gotten so wealthy off of it that the majority of other artists follow suit to get paid. I think it ruins the product.

It is just so mechanically processed that really don't think it is music at that point.

thefatkid: how can you say this ruins music? For that matter, how does Lady Gaga ruin music? You're entitled to your opinion, but don't be an non-nice individual and don't dismiss the opinion of others.

@johanvb: Yep. The PC liberal touchy feely douchebag crowd has made America hyper sensitive to things like race. They make things that aren't reallly racist, seem racist, so it's hard to avoid.

I just don't think that music needs to be profoundly moving to be enjoyed. People who think that way take themselves too seriously. Sometimes music is just fun. I like serious music, and I like silly music. I don't like Die Antwoord because their poetic lyrics have changed my life. I like them because they're fun to listen to when I work out in the morning. The rest of my iPod playlist reads like the vinyl collection of a brooding liberal arts student.
