I'm getting ridiculously excited for the Lady Gaga concert I'm going to with my sister next Thursday. She is such an amazing entertainer and I really cannot get enough of her music. She seriously has it all going on! I mean, this girl can sing, dance, play the piano, write incredibly catchy and melodic music and entertain. There is nothing she can't do! My sister wrote a perfect post about her in her blog, Letters for Lucas. I completely agree with her, I believe Lady Gaga is a genius.
I really love the latest article about her in the July issue of Rolling Stone. "As she puts it over and over in the show, she is a 'free bitch,' and the audience should be too; free not just of society's pressures to conform but also of letting the men in their lives control or define them. She sees her audience as a collection of mini versions of her socially and romantically rejected self, telling them at one point, "Let's raise a glass to mend all the broken hearts of my fucked up friends." Her success is the ultimate misfit's revenge". I just love this. It's such a powerful and inspiring message.
Later on in the article, Lady Gaga says, "I guess what I'm trying to say is, this is show biz for me. It might not be show biz for the rest of you, but for me, this is show biz. If I were to ever, God forbid, get hurt onstage and my fans were screaming outside of the hospital, waiting for me to come out, I'd come out as Gaga. I wouldn't come out in sweatpants because I busted my leg or whatever." She also goes on to admit that she doesn't even drink water on stage because she doesn't want to appear 'human' to her audiences. Wow, she definitely takes performing to the next level. I am sure the concert is going to be so awesome. Stay tuned for all the details!
So, can I please get a job working for her?!
