i know: i should be writing about the oscars, right? but i keep reading about how lady gaga is so weird- and it makes me laugh because i think lady gaga is the cyndi lauper of our time. remember? she was so unusual!
amanda palmer has a song/video about responses to lady gaga: gagapalmermadonna. i think lauper is a better illustration than madonna, but i can agree with the rest of it:
"...and if someone talented wants to make pop music, why should we worry when there's so much other shit wrong?"
