Madonna has also been doing the same thing for her entire career. I often refer to Gaga as "Madonna 2.0".

And, unlike 99% of Pop performers these days, at least Gaga writes music.

I'm glad no one is posting photos of Marilyn Manson and his creepy outfits! I always thought Target was cooler than Walmart in many perspectives, but I didn't realize they supported any anti-gay movements.

From what I have read, Target kind of got caught up in this mess, and their PR department didn't handle the whole thing in a good matter. Perhaps an honest mistake. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now.


Now that "Eat more chicken" place!

Yes yes...
Cyndi had funky clothes and hair... (and has real talent )
Cher too.
Madonna - is okay, not a fan - but makes shrewd moves
Pink - so not into her.

And it could be that I work around advertising
and I know how marketing and promotion work but -
I'm Still chary of the REAL motives behind Gaga.

Once again JUST MY OPINION.
Worship Gaga to your hearts content.

I'm not a GaGa expert by any means, but I'm pretty sure she has raised a lot of money for HIV/AIDS, campaigned for us politically, and has been an advocate for our causes.

I don't think Cyndi and Gaga can be compared. Cyndi has that incredible voice, and her version of style was new, funky, different and she still is. Rather like Betsey Johnson with a voice.

Gaga isn't so new! I like her, but she takes as inspiration those that go before her. Nothing wrong with that, just that she didn't come across to me as new and fresh and different as Cyndi did back in the day.

Gaga can wear meat and bubbles... yep, but so what?

Madonna crawled across the stage and did that stint with Jean Paul Gaultier... so what? She beat Gaga to the punch solely because she was born first. LOL.

Born this way is a total riff off of Respect Yourself, so meh... what's all the fuss?

I like Gaga, am ok with Madonna, but love Cyndi.

Oh and Pink is fine, but never got into her too much.

I am not convinced Target will keep their money away from the Right Wing Anti Gay believing politicians. Maybe they struck a deal with her, maybe they didn't, But I would prefer to find retailers that are not gay neutral, but gay supportive. Although Lady Gaga has previously said she is gay, I wonder if she isn't the Anne Heche of the 2010s.

GaGa caters to the gays because she knows they will eat it up like candy. If she wasn't getting money and if she wasn't famous there's no way she would be contributing to the gay community. And yes, she did falsely claim that she was bisexual. I personaly can't stand the hack, but I don't begrudge anyone who enjoys her.

What money does she get for going to gay pride in any city?
How do you know what she did before she was famous?
Im not famous and do you know how much money i raised for the gay community?
Get your facts straight or keep your mouth shut!
