okay....

I clearly admit that I'm "old" now when it comes to the music scene. I don't know what's hip. I don't know if it's lame to say "hip". I always told myself in college that I would never become this. But I have. So....the point I'm getting to is this....

Who the heck is Lady Gaga? And why did her performance tonight on American Idol remind me of the "Industry, Charity" musical scene from Beaches. Please tell me someone knows of the bizzarness I'm referring too since now I'm really dating myself! (and feel justified for being out of the "hip" music scene).

p.s.
How quickly I went from loving cute Megan, to being COMPLETELY annoyed by her. Glad her flapping wings are flyin elsewhere. And awesome that Simon didn't even want to hear her sing again.

haha, you know how i feel about it.

not only did lady gaga's performance leave me wondering, what the ?? but her voice SUCKED.

and buhbye megan...totally time for you to leave, and I don't like you anymore

Casey said...

I thought Lady Gaga's performance was amusing. I found it refreshing that Idol would put on a comedy act for once.

i know what was up w/ megan tonight! big let down. like act your age girl! glad she went home too.

Nat said...

What is with Lady Gaga and her leotards?! I honestly don't think she owns any pants.
Her music is catchy...but she should never perform live.

And Megan, you're cute but out of your league.
My two cents...(and no, I can't sing a fraction as well as these two lol)

Uh yeah...I know exactly the Beaches number you're referring too...see the movie about a million times...was at class and haven't watched AI yet, but I have NO IDEA who she is...but I'm nowhere near Hip when it comes to music, so I'm sure I'll hate her too...Andy said MEgan sucked too...guess it's a consensus

lyndsey said...

um...lady gaga was STUPID. i mean, her name is lady gaga. that right there should tell you she's an idiot.

and i wanted megan to stay just because she's pretty. but she was BUGGIN tonight. her and her dumb caw-ing need to go back to utah.

and if allison gets in the bottom three again i will freak.

First of all, I've never even heard of Gaga (she is no lady!) Second of all, her performance was so disturbing that I deleted the show off my DVR before my kids could see it. Shame on "family-friendly" Idol for putting such a yucky performance on their show!!!

Erica said...

CRAP!!! I need to stop reading your blog before I get a chance to watch AI. But I totally agree about Megan, she started getting WAY to strange.

Jean said...

Hahaha! Okay, I don't know who Lady Gaga is either, but I DO know that Beaches scene -- hahaha! That's funny. I'll have to find a video of that performance.

Lettie said...

I don't watch American Idol at all and I am for sure out of touch with what is hip (sort of depressing), however, I HAVE heard of Lady Gaga. Ok, its only because of this blog:

And I didn't even know what she did other that apparently she was "famous" somehow.

Brad and Shanell Farr said...

yeah, i really liked megan at first, but lately she's just annoying! what was the wing flapping about?! weird. and yes... lady gaga??? who knows?!

Saunja said...

Okay, this morning I asked my kids about Lady Gaga, and of course they knew who she was... I had never heard of her before LAST NIGHT! And I am NOT impressed. YUCK. What's with the unzipped eyepatch? Nasty. The ONLY thing I liked about her performance was the pink bubbles in the piano.

Megan... so bugging. Was the wing flapping an inside joke between the 9 finalists? I'm glad she's on her way.

Trailer Trash Traci said...

Okay -- so I like Lady Gaga! Her name comes from the Queen song "Radio Gaga" and she's going for an over the top, Freddie Mercury stage persona. But yes she is slutty. And she's not a great vocalist. I think her edge is her "artistic creativity" and not being conventional. If you YouTube her music videos the only one you may be familiar with is "Just Dance" and the video is, well, odd.

I thought that pink bubble piano was kind of awesome.

As for Megan, that chicken thing was weird. I'm really glad it wasn't Anoop, but I think his days are numbered.

Ben was singing Lady Gaga's song one morning and I thought he was crazy. I asked him what the heck he was singing, and he wondered back if I ever listened to anything besides my classical station. So I guess I am out of the loop, too. I wonder if anyone could even recognize her in public because of all of her makeup and costuming. Awesome bubble piano!

I liked Megan when she was still new to the scene, but once she settled in and didn't improve her singing, I got tired. We think that her "I don't care" attitude and flippant behavior was a defense mechanism to handle rejection. She is beautiful though.

dana said...

Danielle, I couldn't agree more!
And yes, I liked the bubble piano too.

dana said...

Ah, thanks Traci. Good to know. Casey was actually singing that song all night when he heard her name. So he was on the right track!

And yes, too many attitudes going around with those kids. Apoop Dawg may be next to go.

Jen Suman said...

Yeah, I hear ya' on the Lady Gaga thing. So weird. I really did like Megan's voice, but she just hasn't quite figured out how to use it, or how to dance for that matter.

But I have to say - why on earth is Scott Macintyre still on the show?? I'm sorry, he has a great inspirational story blah blah blah but the guy STINKS. He pretty much sings the same song every week and personally, I'm a little put off by his facial expressions/eyes as mean as it sounds. Honestly I would rather have had him go home than Megan, she at least has potential. Just my 2 cents.

dana said...

Jenni,
SERIOUSLY....I've been SO done with Scott for weeks. He's "fine". He's not going to win. He's boring. And totally...his eyes (as rude as we sound) are real distracting. Casey keeps hoping that Will Ferrel will do a parody on him. I'd love to see that too.

Toughskins said...

I went from really diggin Megan, to wanting to throw vegetables at her as hard as I could. Her bird flapping made me insane.

So glad Simon dissed her.

devin said...

Lady Gaga. First saw her on a miss Universe pageant about a yr ago? I think the Eurotrash LOVE HER. Lady Gaga is to Eurotrash as Creed is to Douchebags.

As for Megan, yeah the girl is cute, but I knew from the VERY BEGINNING that she was obnoxious. And unique voice if you hear it at a coffee shop, but pretty weak overall. If you want to see pretty girls with MUCH better voices and music visit Paper Bird

Ok, that is EXACTLY what I thought when I saw her too. But not on American Idol, but when we saw her live at So You Think You Can Dance. She performed her most popular song (forget what it's called) like 3 or 4 times. We were literally 4 feet from her as she sang it over and over again. It was so interesting to watch her interact with her crew and hair and make-up, and all I could think of was how much she was like Bette Middler in that Beaches scene. She is super eccentric....but she looks pretty young, which seems like a weird combo. I'm not sure what to think of her. I can't tell if she normal but puts on a show, or if she's just totally out there all the time. She definitely can sing though!!
