    What do you guys think? Lady Gaga: Art or Marketing?

    To me, it’s pretty difficult to choose one answer, because I think the balance between both options is very well positioned. I like her music, some lyrics and songs. But it’s true that she is the result of a business, the icon of the geeks. So… I don’t know.

    I used to LOVE Gaga. I don’t anymore. I think she’s fake. But I still enjoy some of her songs.

    Not the biggest Gaga fan (meaning I’m only mostly familiar with her singles), but I am a Stern listener and was wholly impressed by her live performances on his show:

    I was a huge monster fan myself, but really after Born This Way, I feel shes only out there to shock people and market herself to sell records. She seemed pretty promising at first, but now I really can’t stand her sorry. (And its mostly because of her very annoying stans who feel the need to diss everyone else to benefit Gaga.)

    Yes, it’s both.

    Fame Monster was a good EP. Born This Way, with a lot of editing, could have been the near great pop record she wanted it to be. Her ignorant stans and her overwrought behavior does annoy, but I don’t mind her. I think she’ll be easier to deal with now that hype has faded.

    I think the fact alone that she is commercially successful with her
    “artistry” makes her seem calculating. Maybe she really wants to be
    artistic and her protests against whatever are honest, but it
    automatically makes everything she does appear to be a call for
    attention. And maybe, if her large gay fan base would not dig her
    schtick and pay her rent and wigs, she would have become an AC artist.
    If
    you look at someone like Björk, who isn’t nearly as commercially
    successful as Gaga, her art seems way more sincere and no one questions
    her intentions.

    She is pure marketing.

    Yes, Gaga is still focused too much on shock value, but I’d argue that she is a very genuine artist. For example, ARTPOP is taking so long because Gaga is taking the time to write and perfect all of the songs on the album. She is very dedicated to her work and puts 110% effort into all her songs, videos, performances and other projects, unlike some of her contemporaries.

    I think she’s about 50% of both.   i think she like many before her (Britney, Madonna, Cher, etc) has perfected the concept of using shock and controversy to her benefit.       While, I do think she has a lot of value and has added much of worth there is no denying that she’s also very heavily marketed.
