I'm a big fan of pop music, but in the end I really don't like Lady Gaga... She is so full of herself and markets herself as a fun and weird artist, then opens her mouths in interviews and says how much she hates all the intolerance in the world and what not. I mean, sure you can have a message and what not, but don't tell me you are one way (Just Dance, Poker Face, etc) then turn around and say "No, I'm a serious person...".
That being said, her first album is her best album. That new stinker she put out is a bore. She lost everything that was fun and exciting in her music and replaced it with mellowed downed piano ballads that only teenagers and the gay community can really rally behind.
