egh.. but she aint got shit on bjork...

i see the reference though... shes a shock star diva or whatever you call it..
but bjork has 1000X times more integrity/creativity than gaga ass..

for instance.. they both have done some vids in the nude
to make a statement in one way or another.. bjork has always
done it in a great artistic fashionable sense..
but gaga just comes off as tasteless to me and immature...

bjorks music is just as amazing as the concepts she makes for her music..
they go hand in hand very well and have a much bigger impulse then
then what gaga does..

but i will say tho she comes out with a fun side to it..

She is definitely NOT the new Bjork. Bjork has never made trashy club bangers and (to my knowledge) done crass advertising.

Lil Wayne must be the new Tricky...

Bjork? She is on a WHOLE different level. Probably a whole separate dimension really. And i am not even some big Bjork fan.

Cthulhu, I thought you meant that goth rock band Bauhaus. I never knew there was such a thing as a pre-WWI artistic-achitectural movement called Bauhaus haha.

I don't get why you people call her ugly and stuff, she's quite pretty I think. Nice big ass too.

It comes down to subjective values. When it comes to music some people just want mindless fun. I'm not sure I'm willing to embrace generalized statements about society just because a great number of people were never inclined to foster a sophisticated taste in music. Though I do believe many of these generalized statements to be fairly accurate, I don't think you can draw them from Lady Gaga's popularity.
Hey, dont take this as a personal attack but, these kind of namby-pamby over gerneralizations are what got us into this mess in the first place. Next, we're gonna start rehashing esoteric foolishness like, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one's around to hear it, does it make a noise/sound? It's called "hubris".....always remember; the soliloquy at the end of the alien invasion movie where the protagonist waxes rhapsodic about how aliens see man's stuggle as noble and intrinsic was written by a man/human not an alien. There's a huge difference between an individual's subjective likes/dislikes and actual qualatative standards. Stand up for your fucking selves already. UGH

Jesus Chalky, did you even read what I typed? I'll summarise what I said for you nigga;

I think Bjork and Lady Gaga are similar because they're both obviously a bit mad, but they're both sexy. I also said there is something sexy about the mad ones in a half-hearted way.

THAT is what I said.

edit; at no time did I say they were the same. Ever.

I'm not sure I see this addressing my point. I'm simply saying Lady Gaga provides value to people who don't care about musical depth or music which maintains a high level of quality of art. Rather, music to these people is in the periphery of entertainment. I don't think you can argue that there is something objectively wrong with not making a deep appreciation of music a priority.

Lets evaluate:

I think she's definately a bit crazy, but she's also attractive. She's kind of like the new Bjork, mad as a hatter, but still would. There's something about those crazy chicks, eh?

Strange world.
At NO point did you specify you were speaking about them purely from a looks and craziness based department. You may have only referred to those 2 aspects in the paragraph where you mentioned Bjork, but your sentence contained this phrase "she's kind of like the new Bjork". Had you said "She's kind of like Bjork, in that she is mad as a hatter, but still would".
Your sentence was misguiding, if your true angle was only that.

Not to mention your "she's kinda cool" comments, etc, gives one the impression you feel she has some worth, so of course any comparison after that initial paragraph could be read that way.

I am not the only one who took it that way, perhaps consider it was the way you presented it, and therefore not me who made the mistake here.
