Tony Bennett ft. Lady Gaga: “The Lady Is A Tramp”

Lady GagaLady Gaga is at the top of my list of celebrities I cannot stand – but she is there for much different reasons than most. It is not her lack of talent, her unconventional use of meat products for clothing, her lack of underwear or her face that bother me. What bothers me most is how she defends her “work” as being so cutting edge and innovative when, for the most part, she has recycled songs and/or schtick from artists before her and calls it her own.

I saw her perform at Lollapalooza two years ago and walked away completely bored. I thought I was going to see a spectacle but came away with nothing to write home about. Even more interesting: I left Gaga to watch The Strokes and was absolutely blown away by their performance even though they pretty much looked like hipster statues with moving mouths (side-note: this might be a great concept for a Logan Square Chuck E Cheese). Eventually everyone else will grow tired of the foie gras tampons and she’ll have to figure out who she really is.

What makes this so maddening to me is knowing somewhere under all of that flashy uncomfortable wardrobe is someone with an incredible amount of talent. While you may not be able to catch it on her own albums, you can definitely hear it in this rendition of, “The Lady Is A Tramp”, from Tony Bennett‘s album, Duets II, which comes out tomorrow.

This seems like a very harsh opinion from someone who is obviously so untalented themselves, they feel the need to sit at a computer locked away from the world and take shots at people who have made something of themselves from just being the self. If you don’t necessarily like someone’s work or who they are, then don’t sit here and bitch about it. Honestly it’s people like you who are screwing up society. Get a life, and haven’t you ever heard, if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. Have a little respect for difference, because whether you like it or not it’s all around you, this won’t change.
