Katy Perry vs Lady Gaga

So many jokes, so little time...

Yeah, I know, I could’ve sworn I’d already had this dream too at some point or another…

Nevertheless, our news story of the day is:

KATY PERRY SLAMS LADY GAGA VIDEO

Katy used Twitter (of course) to air her displeasure with Gaga’s new music video for ‘Alejandro’.

Perry, the daughter of two Christian pastors, said of the clip, “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke“.

Uh huh.

Now, I luuurrrrrrves me some Katy Perry. In fact, I like her almost as much as I dislike Lady Gaga. She’s like a sexier, scantily clad Zooey Deschanel-doppelganger. And by all reports ANY woman who can tame Russell Brand’s dickie-doo must be pretty special.

And I don’t even hold it against her when she tries to start a TweetWar. Go nuts. Call Gaga a world-class douche for choosing to ‘express’ herself in a UK concert last week as a murder victim spattered in blood just hours after a British taxi driver killed 12 people in a shooting rampage. Call the ‘Alejandro’ clip rubbish. Call it more self-indulgent twaddle from a pop singer with an extremely inflated sense of her own ‘artistry’. Call it any number of things.

But…

Do you really want to be the one taking shots at other musicians for cheap, tacky n’ tawdry methods of self-promotion, Katy?

That'd be your first hit single...

This'd be you in a skintight bodysuit beneath a water fountain in the music video for 'Starstrukk'...

Annnnnddd this'd be your outfit of choice at this week's MTV Movie Awards

Pot. Kettle. Black g-string with a crucifix emblazoned on the crotch.

S’all I’m sayin.

    Lady Gaga’s new video, “Alejandro” is one of the most vile and offensive videos in recent memory. The new video is filled with cut and dry anti-Christian/Catholic references all over the place (Including upside down crosses in her crotch), homosexual men simulating sex acts , a satanic and Nazi looking backdrop. Parents who let their kids watch this garbage should be jailed for idiocy. Christian, Catholic or Atheist, this is absolute trash.

    Clearly “Gaga” is trying to push the line as far as she can go, attempting to be the Madonna of the 21st Century. Sadly, she fails in every manner Madonna ever excelled. She lacks the looks, the moves, the voice and the inspiration. Lady Gaga however does have a GREAT NAME and a moderately interesting look but thankfully she will fade.

      Sadly, I personally feel that Gaga has chosen to define herself and her ‘art’ simply by being as deliberately provocative and ‘edgy’ as possible. In reality though she’s choosing the easiest possible targets to inflame (the religious/homophobic/middle class), so what boundaries is she really pushing?

      As a consequence her music, the only real artform she has, I think becomes a complete afterthought.
