:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

What is a disco stick?

I've never really been a fan of any singers in my entire life. But in the recent months, I was intrigued with a photo of a singer named Lady Gaga wearing a transparent "bubbles" stage costume - which appeared in The Star, a Malaysian mainstream newspaper.

(If I say I'm impressed with any celeb, you've gotta take me seriously;) Because I have never paid any attention to Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, or owned any CDs apart from Whitney Houston's)    
- as such, I am reviewing her work very objectively, and void of the intense fan devotion that would usually cause biased judgements

(Source: http://blogs.nypost.com)
Well, I was curious enough to google Lady Gaga's and chanced upon her fan site www.ladygaga.com and quite like the Flash design:) 
- an AI version of New York City 
If you move your mouse cursor on the screen, you will get a Flash view of NYC

I listened to some of her songs on YouTube, read her biography and found myself quite impressed with this young artiste! 


What's interesting about her work is that they're heavy on parody - eg. a love song titled "Brown Eyes" whereby the music video's done in a Salvador Dali style - very Freudian (she hugged a corpse as she was singing the song). You can view the video here:-
(It's in French, with English subtitles - provided an overview of all her songs in her debut album The Fame)


and there's also a song titled "Passion" written from the p.o.v. of a transvestite and sung in an effeminate voice;) lol - which I thought was brilliant
I mean, who else had ever really thought about writing a song for Ladyboys?
I only thought about Ladyboys when I visited Thailand
I do not discriminate and I personally feel sorry for the marginalised groups as I have some gay Asian friends who are very intellectual, but suffered discrimination in traditional workplaces. So, great job, LadyGaga - for doing something to help them out! :)


She has a very wacky fashion sense. 
IMHO, very artistic!
Some snapshots of her bizarre costumes...
A snail-inspired outfit
An eagle-inspired metallic colour dress
Mickey Mouse hairdo
 
Look at those lips! :)

Purple colour hair
"Red Riding Hood" leotard
Geometry dress
My favourite:) Blue puffed-sleeves top
I was impressed because she's only 22 and she has a very good insight on how to capture attention in an uncanny way - injecting art into contemporary music and at the same time, bringing attention to social issues - the 'dark side' of city life that people are aware of, but rarely talk about.
Lady Gaga carrying a disco-stick - her favourite on-stage prop
She probably invented the word "disco stick"
- Well, maybe she didn't... but nevertheless, she did help popularize "disco stick" by giving it a new meaning. In her performances (particularly when she sings the song titled "Just Dance"), she is often seen carrying a rod which she refers to as her disco stick)
She french-kissed two Dalmations in one of her videos. Gross? ;p I actually thought it's quite creative (errm... I'll never look at Dalmations the same way again)
Although Lady Gaga does have her critics, I am inclined to believe that she is a very "original" artiste - and being a non-celeb fan, I believe that I'm judging her very objectively - and this blog post will perhaps, make you curious enough to do a bit of googling on your own;)

I'm just so enamoured with Lady Gaga's unique fashion sense and bizarre videos that I almost forget to mention that she has a very good voice - as good as Christina Aguilera's - Broadway quality!!:)

  13. I think you hater's would DIE to be that rich, and INSANELY famous. I don't care what her songs are about, she has an amazing voice, and body. As well as being able to captivate a crowd, and make people want to dance. I love that she goes out in crazy outfits! As to the "dalmatians" Why don't you shut the F up. Your spelling grammar leaves much to be desired. LOL... Unhappy people are everywhere, so of course there's going to be haters everywhere too.
