Why can't I be you

It's difficult to call yourself a fan of Gaga, especially when she chops and changes so ruddy often, it's hard to keep up. I think I was a little too in love with the 'Telephone' package , so colourful and fun - whereas this new offering is just a little too much for me.

Is it just me or is this just some kind of video montage, an ode to Madonna through the ages?

So far I have noted Like a Prayer, Material Girl, Vogue, Express Yourself, Open up your heart, 4 Minutes and a smidge of Frozen. And that's all before even mentioning how Gaga's 'Alejandro' sounds like a cheap and nasty rip off of 'La Isla Bonita' (I mean who uses foreign accents in pop music anymore, I thought that ended with Geri's 'Mi Chico Latino'?) the beginning is a complete take off of Evita, and the gun bra...hello did some one say John Paul Gaultier?

Ok so yes I have followed Madonna through the ages, I may not like her as a person but god she's had some hits, and Gaga is a star in her own right but what are you doing woman? No, step away from the Madonna Greatest Hits Collection VHS that you have obviously been playing and just get on with being your own version of great.

Now for some Madonna, need you ask why?

  1. Know what you mean about the whole Alejandro Gaga video experience. It was very Madonna tribute, which whilst flattering to Madge I did think border more on to tribute-act, which I don't think is where she intended to go!
