Lady GaGa: Copycat In Her Own Right

We've all bared witness recently to the backlash that Christina Aguilera has gotten from her "GaGa" inspired VMA performance. But is it really Lady AgAg who should be baring the brunt of this assault?

We've been through the fact that GaGa totally bites her style from Grace Jones, Andy Warhol, David Bowie, and Debbie Harry, but little has been said about her true inspiration: Irish Electronica/Nu Jazz singer Róisín Murphy.

Here is some photographic dumpings of Róisín Murphy to compare to those you've already seen (but won't be posted here) of Shady GaGa.

The results are in amigo. What's left to ponder?Collapse )

I was really keen on listening to Lady Gaga as I love lots of her supposed "inspirations" (and in fact Roisin Murphy) but the songs are fucking rubbish. One of her Top Friends on Myspace is Akon which speaks volumes.
Oh really? You're "inspired by androgyny and Andy Warhol"? I'M SURE YOU ARE.
I wonder what her favourite David Bowie album is? The Best Of? For fuck's sake.

Now please PLEASE don't get me wrong here, I cant STAND lady gaga OR akon.
But are you saying that you cant like akon, andy warhol and david bowie simultaneously?
i mean, yeah, akon and andy warhol suck balls but still, you sound REALLY pretentious in this.

this person doesnt know gaga, how does he/she know what kind of music gaga listens to?

Roisin Murphy is fucking awesome. Lady Gaga is not.

That is all.

I love them both. But Róisín OWNS her in every way.

I know barely anything about Roisin Murphy, but the one song I've heard by her, I really like.

And based only on that, I can say, Roisin > Gaga.

Also, Roisin ftw because of her name.

her album overpowered is amazing. "movie star" and "cry baby" put anything gaga has ever released to shame

idgaf. I like the music and don't care who is copying.

thanks to people saying gaga copied roisin murphy, I gave roisin a listen and liked her music too.

But Gaga makes it WORK.
pantless_deacon 28th-Nov-2008 03:01 am (UTC)
She actually doesn't.

who the fuckkkkkkkkk carrrrrrrrres

everyone changes their images so fast. so what if xtina does it now, she'll do something else for her next album. it just goes with the current concept of the album she's bringing out.

gaga will prolly just do pin-up 50s for her next one. SO WHAT? i like them both.

im kinda liking britney's circus thing tho.

christina fans...you waste time as in britney posts.

umm... English please.

Gaga is a copycat.

She's just pissed that Christina is more talented than her.
when_itsizzles 27th-Nov-2008 05:03 pm (UTC)
i dont think she gives a fuck about christina tbh. their music is too different for them to even be direct competition. i dont see xtinas music being played in clubs without ALOT of remixing.
encyclopedicace 28th-Nov-2008 02:41 am (UTC)
Well, I hardly know who Gaga is, so I'm not too familiar with her style...I only know that Poker Face song...

If she didn't care that much about Christina, then why did she accuse her of copying her style? Really, it's the biggest form of flattery.

LOL. I'm sure if Christina wanted to make club music, she could make club music. Don't play yourself.

Xtina's last album sounds so much like Goldfrapp, she's stealing from them!
flossylina Nope27th-Nov-2008 05:16 pm (UTC)
She's working with Allison. Also just so you know Christina is doing a remix of Slave to the rhythm by Grace Jones.
fioredimerda Oi!27th-Nov-2008 05:31 pm (UTC)
She'll start ruining Grace Jones!
arctic_chick 27th-Nov-2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
I've been saying this for a while now!

Also, Roisin >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Lady Whatever. Her album is amazing and she's all kinds of fierce.
