For a pop album, Lady Gaga's new album Born This Way, like her other two albums is FANTASTIC! yo! dont hate. this ish is really good. I give props to any artist that writes their own ish, Michael Jackson style.
UPDATE from WEIRD AL
Well, this was a strange day.
After putting my Lady Gaga parody on YouTube this morning – and announcing that it wouldn’t be on my next album because Gaga didn’t approve it – there was a huge outpouring of disappointment from the Internet.
Apparently the fact that she didn’t approve it was news to Lady Gaga herself!
Gaga’s manager has now admitted that he never forwarded my parody to Gaga – she had no idea at all. Even though we assumed that Gaga herself was the one making the decision (because, well, that’s what we were TOLD), he apparently made the decision completely on his own.
And Gaga loves the song.
I’m thrilled on many levels to hear this, because 1) I truly respect and admire Gaga as an artist and it pained me to think of her as having less than a great sense of humor, and 2) it means I GET TO PUT OUT MY ALBUM!
As promised, all my proceeds from the song (and the MUSIC VIDEO… I can’t wait…) will go to the Human Rights Campaign.
Thank you, Gaga. And thanks to everybody who had my back.
Sorta related, but a dope bluegrass cover:
Exploitation is probably not true, but I wish music and choir class back in elementary was this fun. We used to sing some of the worst songs. Its pretty cool that these New York kids have a fun teacher to make music class that much more fun. Check out their collaboration with Matisyahu and their rendition of MGMT's and Lady Gaga's classic hits:
