Lady Gaga goes full vampire/zombie in London: cracked-out or amazing?

wenn20793585

Lady Gaga left Berlin a few days ago (go here to see those Berlin photos) and she went back to London. These are all photos from some of the London outings. My original idea for this post was merely to write “COCAINE” and then just show you the photos. I’m still thinking that would have been a more comprehensive post.

Let’s see… the photos of Gaga barefoot and looking like a ghost/coke-angel/zombie are from outside of her hotel, when she just arrived in London. The Dolce & Gabbana dress photos (the busy, slinky printed dress) are from outside of a London studio. And the breezy Kardashian-looking dress is what she wore (and then took off on stage) while performing at G.A.Y. nightclub.

Remember this, boys and girls: she’s TRYING to be grotesque. That’s her aim, her goal, her raison d’être. She associates “grotesque” with “high art”. Then again, she also takes off her clothes to promote her music. So… blah.

Gaga released the full track for “Venus”. It sounds very Madonna-esque of course, but like she chased several Madonna albums with some David Bowie homage-ing. ARTPOP is a very ‘80s album, isn’t it? Even more so than Born This Way.

    As someone else said, “Just because it’s weird doesn’t mean it’s art.”

  2. Thurston P. says:

    Do people ever just laugh when they see her coming? She looks ridiculous.

  3. Square Bologna says:

    Urgh. Try LESS hard.

  4. Eve says:

    “Cracked out or amazing?”

    Neither.

    Just plain stupid.

  5. PunkyMomma says:

    It doesn’t work. At all.

    ‘Meth. Not even once’

  7. Aussie girl says:

    This isn’t high art. This is high on a substance and reeking of desperation to be unique. I fear the more desperate she gets the more drugs and desperate displays like this will we will see

  8. Launicaangelina says:

    Cocaine is a hellava drug.

  9. prissa says:

    THOSE SHOES!!! how does she walk in them??

  10. Betty says:

    lol, i think she’s the cutest she’s ever been. until now people have said she takes herself too seriously and now when she’s legit trying to have fun everyone is jumping on her arse. the berlin thing is so cute, she’s like a hobbit but without the hairy feet.

  11. lovelylaura says:

    I kinda dig the D&G ensemble – minus the glasses, shoes, bangles and Gooped-up hair. So yeah, just the dress.

  12. Felice says:

    Oh Gaga, I still love you. You looked so fabulous during Swinefest. Why are you doing this?

  13. Beatrice says:

    Trying to compete with twerking Miley for headlines–and losing.

  14. lenje says:

    Her white painted (or is it powder?) feet and the see through dress reminds me of a white goat

    I actually like the off white dress in the last photo.

  15. Naomi says:

    I have only seen her video Telephone with Beyonce due to my having read about it on Gawker. There was a video of a talk show host or anchor person who couldn’t stop laughing because the lyrics were so silly. The video was hysterical. I found her outlandish outfits interesting in the short term but I have found that has not translated into my finding her interesting enough to actually listen to or buy her music. The one item I find of interest is the story of her start and the possibility that her earliest songs were largely influenced or are the actual work of a young woman who died prior to Lady Gaga’s success. I have read that Lady Gaga is a talented singer and musician but weak in song writing skills. I recall reading that the mother of this early collaborator is very bitter and angry as she believes Lady Gaga has built her career on her daughters work and not given her any credit. I really like the glasses but the rest is just tired. If she is talented in the way I have heard I would be interested to see her in a cabaret environment or jazz atmosphere. She could do a Las Vegas residency. That would be a far better show than Britney Spears can ever provide.

  16. Bianca says:

    This is what Luna Lovegood would look like is she had a band. “The Wrackspurts”.

  17. M says:

    Poor Gaga. Just give it up, dear. Put out some great music, that will get you some positive attention.

  18. Kit says:

    The two guys at either edge of the first photo: their expressions say it all.

  19. Dizzybenny says:

    the left side bodyguard,(her right side) face on the first pic is priceless!!! lol
    I wouldn’t want that gig! :D

  20. GlimmerBunny says:

    Haha, COCAINE should definitely have been the post title :D

  21. ANDREA1 says:

    OMG gaga has lost it! She reeks of desperation. I pray it ends well for her..

  22. Angelduster says:

    If Lady Gaga wasn’t famous we would just think she is dressing up for Halloween!
    But this is normal, everyday attire for her – sigh – it’s not even interesting anymore.
    I listened to her new single, can’t remember what it’s called, but she sang, ” Do what you want to my body.”
    I was so disappointed, it was terribly boring and repetitive.

  23. Adrien says:

    Venus sounds more bananarama than Madonna.

  24. Poopsicle says:

    I am tired of the Madonna comparisons. Madonna is a haggard old bitter breezy, she had her time and it’s time to gracefully leave. It’s so pathetic how she is trying to hang onto fame. Her vah jay jay probably looks like a wizard’s sleeve. Difference between Madonna and Lady Gaga… Lady Gaga actually has pipes and can sing. Madonna’s music is catchy but she really is sort of the first of pop artist to be horrible at singing but still make it (ie. Britney Spears) as compared to other 80s artists of her time most of which could actually belt some notes. She’s not really creative in music and doesn’t write her own sh–. Yeah the outfits are super played out and horrible but Gaga’s music is still awesome and she makes it.

    • allheavens says:

      Doesn’t matter if you can sing if you overshadow your talent with crazy bullshit. Gaga could have reivented herself at a certain point but once you start believing your own hype or literally have no clue how to change your image you get this craziness.

      Gaga can sing but don’t delude yourself, her music is nothing more than pop and not great pop.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Uh, Gaga has at least copied one of Madonna’s songs–Express yourself. I don’t listen to much music, and even I could tell you that. I listened to about a minute of “Born this way”, and then literally listened to about 15 seconds of “Express Yourself” and knew immediately that Gaga copied her—the “beat” (or whatever its called) was basically the same, and Gaga copied her dance moves.

      And Gaga’s getting worse. I listened to a few of her songs–and the stuff I like is from her first album, I think she’s getting too wrapped up in her image as an artiste, and not focusing on her music. Which sucks.

    • Elle Kaye says:

      “Had her time?” Tell that to GaGa, who apparently enjoys reinventing Madonna’s sound. You may not like Madonna, but she has had an immense impact on the music industry, and for women in music.

      Why does appearance of her vagina matter in her artistic endeavors? Do you worry about the state of pop male penises? Or do we just bash females who have sex and are older? They should just hang up their old nasty parts and go away so the young people can take over? Please. You have a thing or two to learn.

      • Poopsicle says:

        When I meant she should “hang it up” I meant her vagina, not her career. LOL It was just a joke it’s like saying someone is old they fart out dust… ;-)

        Listen I get what you are saying. The crazy clothes and even her political views get in the way and overshadows the music. Either way I am just saying how can just assume she straight up stole Madonna’s song? It’s just the same chord progression used in a lot of other music as well oh whoooOoOoOoooo but she stole it right even though the lyrics are completely different? Don’t tell me Madonna hasn’t borrowed from others as well.

        She’s also is nasty during her concerts and mocking Gaga, female empowerment? Shouldn’t we be supportive of other ladies in music? Madonna is not. Madonna is not above making a fool of herself in her concerts. Who want’s to see granny go native in a concert. She’s so desperate for attention she flashes her bewbs.

        Oh btw, yes I highly prioritize the appearance of male dong. I have a distaste for shriveled up wieners…

  25. agentscully says:

    She used to wear some really cool, really avant-garde outfits when her career first took off which made her stand out. However, I believe I read somewhere that her stylist/co-stylist either quit or was fired? Either way, they moved on and her clothing choices have been spiralling down ever since. It used to seem – as bizarre as some of her outfits were – that there was a purpose behind the execution, a method to the madness if you will. Now it’s just madness. Her look today is what happens when you binge on drugs and surround yourself with sycophants. It’s become less about artistic expression and more about a desperate plea for attention. Shame that it steals away from the fact she has genuine talent.

  26. MonkSolo says:

    I’ve said this to friends: She had a handful of hits in her and that’s good. Some artists only have ONE. But I think she’s run out.

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Exactly, she’s just an average pop singer with generic pop songs that sound like a bad reprise of the 80s; look how fast this recent single applause (everyone calls it applesauce because it’s so generic) disappeared. And that’s her first single on this upcoming cd. Be interesting to see and listen to the worst track. As everyone has commented, if these idiots just tried to put out good music they wouldn’t become parodies of themselves. I’m glad the great rock bands of the 70s never followed this script; Queen is a great today as they were then. Gaga can only dream that she will be revered that much 25-30 yrs. from now.

  27. pretty says:

    how sad.. nobody even cares anymore.. /cringe

  28. judyjudy says:

    This freaks me out because she looks exactly like my neighbor’s schizophrenic niece.

  29. capepopsie says:

    Poor Gaga! Why does she keep on embarrasing herself like this? I just don´t get it!
    I whish she would just let her music speak for itself, without all the dress drama.

  30. janie says:

    Really? This is beyond ridiculous! Give it up!! Your 15 minutes are over!

  31. Dawn says:

    I find her tiring and boring. She can sing, she has a voice and she needs to just start using it and put all these over used stunts to bed. Is she in on the joke? Does she even know it’s all now a joke?

  32. Abby says:

    Barefoot! On the street? Gross!

  33. Madriani's Girl says:

    In her endless and pathetic quest for attention, she has become plain boring.

  34. mollie says:

    This woman can really sing.
    What would be more thought-provoking and avant garde at this point would be to see her completely bare-faced, singing without accompaniment. Everyone would wake up!
    This schtick is so boring. I yawn each time I see her like this.
    C’mon Gaga, you can sing!

  35. Sassy says:

    Ri-f*cking-diculous. What happened to “artists” just MAKING GOOD MUSIC without all this other bullsh*t?

  36. Yelly says:

    That look is pretty disgusting. And disturbing.

  37. bondbabe says:

    I would consider her music as an art form if she were to just put out the music itself and I would then form my opinion on that; no weird videos, no outlandish outfits, no public antics.

    She asks us to view her work as art. Well then, she should just paint the canvas of music with her voice and message, and allow me view it with just my ears.

    Unfortunately, the over-the-top outfits, the videos, the weird public outings and her TELLING me how I should interpret her “art” does nothing but put me off. The never-ending “look at me” schtick is tiring.

  38. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    It must be exhausting to be around her.

  39. Veruca says:

    I’m normally a non-violent person, but this person’s sick need for attention makes me want to slap her. Hard.

  40. Jayna says:

    When she performed at G.A.Y. Club, she stripped down to completely nude, no G-string, no pasties, nothing. I find that sad to go that far to top the other pop girls.

  41. lylaooo says:

    is she still with her boyfriend? the actor from Chicago Fire….

  42. some bitch says:

    Walking barefoot through London streets… consider me seriously grossed out.

  43. moo says:

    Loser…. she’s ripping of Kanye as some “god” or some such BS……….. always ripping off other artists and then calling it her own.

  44. nicegirl says:

    I have never used cocaine so this is just totally weird to me. LOL

  45. Gale says:

    Does anyone else think she looks like Gwyneth Paltrow in that picture?

  46. vicky says:

    This chick now tops the list of people i wish would just go away. This list includes: Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, Diana Agron….A bunch of loser TRY HARDS! Just GO! PLEASE!

  47. Dommy Dearest says:

    Hahahahahaha, who cares about Lady Gaga? Look at what she’s having to do to get attention now.

  48. JillyRo says:

    It’s so funny how all her “shock” dressing is now having the opposite effect, people are laughing at her not in awe at all. I CRINGE and am so embarassed for her that she is not in on the joke she has become. She acts like “art” is like curing Cancer and that she is “saving” us. She lives for the applause, but she is now being heckled and laughed at instead!!! It is only music, Gaga needs to lighten up, put the silly costumes away and just play music!!!

  49. Jayna says:

    Who cares about Gaga going for shock value. Arcade Fire’s Reflektor is coming out tomorrow, laying down the guitars for all the layering of synths, strings, island rhythm section. No stripping down nude to put out the album and an album that is saying something. They are streaming their whole album on youtube to the1959 movie Black Orpheus, which they said inspired their double disk album.

  50. St says:

    Poor thing. She tries so much to stay relevant and be A-List mega star. All that crazy cloth… But it’s one thing Gaga does not understand. She became popular not because she was wearing ridiculous cloth but because she was releasing mega hits like Poker Face, Just Dance and Alejandro. When she stopped – her mega fame slowly vanished. And now she is just try hard that desperately tries to stay A-List.

    And it will be impossible because she doesn’t have a single hit song on the new album. They are all annoyingly boring. We will not have new Just Dance any time soon. That song with RKelly went to number 1 on ITUNES and stayed there for whole 3 days. And then… it felt so hard. It’s already on #25. While Roar is still on #2. And if this is true that she faked her injury to cancel tour because tickets were not selling then now she will have even less viewers. Will she even go to tour at all? Will it be small arenas?

    • Jayna says:

      The album will still sell millions. Gaga isn’t a singles artist these days and has lost a lot of casual fans, but she’s still the biggest popstar out there out of the new batch. She will sell out on tour far more than Katy. Her tour will be huge because Gaga vocally is a great live performer.

  51. fingerbinger says:

    This song kind of sucks. The 80′s had some really good music so I don’t know if I would say this is an 80ish song/album. This is cheesy pop melodies with pedestrian lyrics.

  52. bondbabe says:

    What’s next? Her naked with a colander on her head with chains attached to nipple clamps and a bathroom plunger sticking out of her a$$?

  53. Tails says:

    Her bodyguards’ faces in the first pic say it all.

  54. Raffy says:

    Am I the only getting thinking she looks like Trelaqwney from Harry Potter with the glasses and the hair?

  55. EscapedConvent says:

    I think we’ve found our next Ophelia in the last pic.

  56. Mabs says:

    We got over Grace Jones in the exact same way…Gaga was never original to me in the first place. Yawn.

  57. Mikunda says:

    It’s not even funny any more. It’s pathetic. She should stop doing that, I really feel bad for her. All this time could be used for something good, like charity or a few good songs.
