    I make no apologies for my unexpected enjoyment of Artpop and subsequent slutification.

    As Madonna (and now Gags) once said, AND I'M NOT SORRY. And yes Chrissy you are most welcome to DO WHAT U WANT with my body.

    I was just following the official line doll. No one's been capitalising ART since this morning!

    We've all been there when a couple of no hoper queens start perfing in the club toilets much to the chagrin of everyone else in there trying to get to the loo and get a Chupa Chup.

    We JUDGE and we JUDGE and we JUDGE :D

    Okay so now that I've heard most of the songs quite a few times, here comes a mini-review:


    11 Aura - This is Judas with a pinch of Tarantino. It's quite clearly the best thing that came out from this mess of a project. Gaga's usually annoying vocal delivery and kitchen sink mentality works so well here. Interesting subject as well!

    07 Venus - This one keeps growing on me. Like everything else on this album and with Gaga songs in general, there are some very nice segments but is ruined by that awful "rap" middle 8 and for like being 3 different songs in one.

    08 G.U.Y. - Love the esoteric intro. It's more Fame Monster than BTW which can only be a good thing.

    07 Sexxx Dreams - The desperation in her voice when she screams "Help me here!" is quite something. I love the verses, the rest is just annoying.

    04 Jewels n' Drugs - I love some urban Gaga, but this is just too much. What's the point of having it here? It doesn't fit in.

    00 Manicure - I can't stand this shit.

    08 Do What U Want - Already getting quite tired of this but it's nice to hear something straightforward among all this mess. I wish she'd scream less, it's really annoying.

    07 ARTPOP - This one reminds me of Goldfrapp. Not too bad and quite surprisingly restrained for being Gaga bringing the art into pop.

    02 Swine - An instrumental version would have been great though.

    -1 Donatella - Embarrassing even for someone like Gaga.

    00 Fashion!
    00 Mary Jane Holland

    03 Dope - The way she screams "from living high for so long" ruins whatever nice elements this mess has.

    06 Gypsy - I'm über disappointed by this; I expected something extraordinary after reading all the comments about it here. Turns out it's basically a poor man's Edge of Glory being polluted by Yoü and I. The unnecessary screaming is, again,extremely annoying. The "Ice Mc- Think About the Way"-esque outro is its only saving grace. SwedenFinlandNorwayBeMyHomeJustForADayImAGypsyGypsyGypseyHey is quite a line :disco:

    07 Applause



    All in all, I don't hate it as much as I thought I would. Half of the songs had the potential to be great pop songs but are ruined by being too messy and by her awful way of singing. Still, there is a rather nice 5-6 track EP inside ARTPOP.

    It'll implode in a sea of recriminations and weave snatching RS very shortly - mark my words!

    Oooh an AMERICAN QUEEN asked me on the beach this morning how I had "Artpop" as he'd overheard me talking about it with MR SHEENA

    I said he can come round later and STEAL my STOLEN mp3s if he likes. :disco:

    I heard she was manhandled by the medics being carried out of Fire last night after too much G, but don't quote me on it.

    Tell me about it Suede! The manifesto of Mama Monster is definitely not being adhered to in the hallowed walls of Moopy!

    We love Chrissy but we'd love her more if she took a clear LOVE/HATE position on ARTPOP

    I LOVE the fact ARTPOP is already turning naysayers/haters into HASBEENS here.

    Get on board or stay stuck in o'12! :disco:

    If you say so Tram. Having just had a spin through the ArtRave, I think someone needs to let Gags know that a dull as live show with a couple of statues in the background does not an art installation make!

    I don't get it. Is that one of those cum-shot album streams she was on about on Graham Norton?

    It's great and abysmal in equal measure. What a merger of art and pop.
