Watch Lady Gaga Be Desperate, Weak and Horribly Annoying In Her New HBO Special

What is wrong with this woman? And why do people continue to idolize her as this “queen of the freaks”? It is clearly feeding her horribly annoying god complex. In this clip from her upcoming HBO special, Gaga comes across as a desperate and needy mess who is psychotically obsessed with her “kingdom of fans.”

The clip makes clear a substantial difference between Gaga and Madonna, who she’s been ripping off left and right lately: Madonna would never allow herself to come across so weak and bizarrely god-fearing. There’s something really regressive about her behaviour here, and about Gaga in general. While Gaga’s all about this “we can’t help it we’re born this way” watered-down brand of self-acceptance, Madonna was always much more about a complex combination self-empowerment and self-entitlement. It’s not about being born a certain “way,” but about, well, expressing yourself.

You said it the perfect way.
She is so desperate for attention. The name FAME MONSTER says it all. She stole all her ideas from a not famous artist from Germany and she still does because everyone thinks what she got from this girl is her own. She hasn’t created one single thing herself. All her new outfits and ideas are a ripp-off. She is completely mental, i would say.


Hey Peter,
This is Stephen (met in Montreal). I have to say this much: I think Gaga is derivative. Too derivative for my tastes. The second clip displays that perfectly. The outfits, the dancing, the style, the voices, the songs… it’s all too much. And the previous clip kinda makes my skin crawl. At first I was empathetic of her but when she launches into her prayer, I just cringed. Xania (in Trike with me) is a huge fan but I’m much more skeptical.


gaga needs to go and see a psy…
