    I have a feeling that Born This Way (single not album) Will be STYLE over SUBSTANCE overflow and a side of shock value. First those lyrics, now all we need is drags appearing in the video, how orignal. :zombie:

    God I can't wait for this all to tank and for everyone to wake up and feel fucking embarrassed


    Jesse J is a good example of someone who is also a pretentious wanker, but guess what, she's written good SONGS, not monotone robotic semaphore signals

    and anyway, how irrelevant does all of this feel now that our true pop princess is back, like an older sister returning from rehab. WE DON'T CARE WHAT YOU DID, WE LOVE YOU BRITNEY

    Aren't singers only supposed to start actively courting the pink pound when the rest of their fanbase deserts them because they HAD CHILDREN?

    I've just read the full lyrics and FUCK ME it's going to take a miracle to turn this lyrical piece of shit around! She needs to give us the melody to end all melodies.

    So, that's not a RedOne production then.

    By the way, if any of us only had read the lyrics to 'Poker face' or 'Just dance' without knowing the melody, I don't think they would have left us impressed, so let's just hear what the track actually sounds like first and then we can all bitch together :D

    Are we REALLY ripping the lyrics apart?

    Oh COME ON, this is LADY GAGA, let's have a look at her track record or LYRICS. She's NO BOB DYLAN. Thank FUCK.

    HUGE mistake unveiling the lyrics before the song itself. If the first thing we heard was the song and it was brilliant musically then nobody would give a flying fuck about the lyrics. Now, we're all well aware of how shit they are, and I don't know if I'm able to get past that.

    That being said, if that bridge turns out to be spoken I might just be able to get on board with this in an ironic way.

    I'm now beginning to seriously wonder whether her claims about it being an "anthem for our generation" were actually made before she'd written the damn thing, and that she'd just decided she was going to have a crack at writing one.

    Are we seriously worrying about slightly shit POP LYRICS? It's a Lady Gaga single it will clearly be HOOKS APLENTY and have a hot shit melody.

    Regardless though, the follow-up single is just as important as it will likely be released to coincide with the album and the lead single is pretty much guaranteed to be a hit of some sort as it's one of the most anticipated of the year.

    What a loony post I've just made :disco:

    Yeah not a big fan of this idea though. I don't quite understand her, she constantly tries to go down the unexpected route with her career yet she is going with the most OBVIOUS one with this supposed single/video

    Oh come ON people, that bridge is clearly going to just be an extension of the Dance In The Dark bridge. Or the hot mess to end all hot messes.

    Either way I'm ON BOARD with this patent attempt to do one 'for the gays' *puts paws up* :disco:

    Maybe Jennifer Snow was right all along. We've all been so misguided.

    OMG

    Is the imminent Gaga backlash starting sooner than expected?

    I think these lyrics are the first sign. :zombie: Is it too much to ask for a regular normal pop song? It's like she's not doing it for fun anymore, she just wants to shock people and the haters.

    Transgenders are marginalised even by the marginalised. Funny that.

    I want an American Life-esque RAP bit to the bridge. The lyrics are shit but what were we expecting? There's bound to be more to it than the lyrics (well, obviously :D).

    WORD.

    Get over your hangups people!

    And realise that none of Gaga's biggest hits have ever been LYRICALLY CREDIBLE.

    PS. I'm ALL FOR a Tranny video. Gays are OKAY, but Trannies are BAD?
