“It would be easy to dismiss Lady Gaga as just another pop puppet—were she not pulling all the strings herself. The outspoken, rule-breaking superstar is making 2009 her year by saying what she wants, singing how she feels, and never compromising on fashion.”—from the Daily Mail.
“She reminded me of a young Madonna - with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing,” Bolton added. Listen to Michael's new song, "Murder My Heart," written by Lady Gaga, at the bottom of this post.

In an July interview in V Magazine, Lady Gaga was asked about the subtext of “Boys, Boys, Boys” in her Poker Face album.

“I wrote the track as a mating call," Lady Gaga said. "I was dating this guy who was really into heavy metal and I wanted to write a pop song that would make him fall in love with me. So I wrote that record and we dated for two years.”

“It reminds me of ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ by Mötley Crüe," she continued. "The subtext is that even though I’m a very free and sexually empowered woman, I’m not a man hater.”

“I celebrate very American sentiments about bars and drinking and men buying women drinks. It’s a very heavy metal sentiment that I celebrate in a pop song."

She was also asked if she’s ever encountered an item of apparel too outlandish for her.
Lady Gaga answered, “I don’t consider my own clothing to be outrageous. It’s very strange to me the way people say, ‘Oh, Lady Gaga and another one of her wacky outfits!’ Or, ‘You always dress so crazy!’ The truth is that people just don’t have the same references that I do. To me it’s very beautiful and it’s art, and to them it’s outrageous and crazy.”
