Discussion in 'Lady Gaga' started by Penelope, Nov 2, 2013.
ART uncapitalized was a buzzkill.
Keep sitting on the sidelines watching the other boys dance, you two! Must be a riot!
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 hold my own ARTRaves in my bedroom pancake, ain't nobody got time for watching little lobsters grinding on each other to Jewels n Drugs!
I was just following the official line doll. No one's been capitalising ART since this morning!
Now we're cooking with GAS
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
You think you know but you have NO IDEA
Loving the homage to Whitney (RIP) / Diane Sawyer Oh Two.
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 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
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.
RS bringing it AS PER. Looks like the supposed cool kids club (BITCH PLEASE) is yet another member short
Exterminate that club Chrissy!
Is Chrissy having a rough day? She's snappier than usual!
It'll implode in a sea of recriminations and weave snatching RS very shortly - mark my words!
Doll, I'm off on holiday tomorrow. This is me in cheery mood
Good for you, babe! Hope you have your fave ARTPOP tracks on your iPhone ready for the trip (what am I talking about - of course you do!)
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.
Still, there's FUCK ALL ELSE to do in the Caribbean, so I see your dilemma!
In fairness, he ain't MY CUP OF HORLICKS AT ALL
I don't wanna be ALONE forever
But I can be TONIGHT
Yeah, that's what they all say until the Men At Play theme tune kicks in!
I can't wait for my first listen tomorrow
artRAVE should be fun, do we know she's debuting #volantis tonight i.e. a flying dress!
Dope is like a sobering punch in the gut.
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.
You Little Monsters are so mean to Chrissy!
Well RB I'm not one to judge. Not everyone can take an 2hr extended mix of Gina G!
Fire? I thought that club died!
Tell me about it Suede! The manifesto of Mama Monster is definitely not being adhered to in the hallowed walls of Moopy!
It's alright darling, I'm here for you. Just DO WHAT U WANT with my body and it'll be okay.
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!
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!
The app is now out there with graphics straight out of the Atari ST
Just listening to this. Not hating this at all!
Mind you when Little Mix set you on a pop path for the day it can only help
WHY do the little Monsters have to RUIN anything Gaga??
I dread this would come with the APP
Who's even talking about this crap anymore? We're all letting go this afternoon!
I don't get it. Is that one of those cum-shot album streams she was on about on Graham Norton?
What the actual fuck is that?
This album is far better than it should be! I'm disappointed!
It's great and abysmal in equal measure. What a merger of art and pop.
