I'm not entirely certain she's as ''clever'' as many in the industry claim her to be. I can appreciate her only in her artisitic capacity and
her eccentricity, and although unique by today's standards, is only reminiscent of the likes of Freddy Mercury, Adam Ant, Madonna and Dolly Parton.
But let me be clear I don't consider her especially as talent as some of the former.
I think being with Def Jam (PolyGram) it's no wonder they employ a Director like Steven Klien too. He's done a few Madonna numbers, and let's not
forget they've marketted Gaga through the same old adage of ''Sex Sells'' as someone above also quite rightly noted.
The symbology, my understanding, is down to cunning art directors. If they consider the symbols to mean nothing, they could leave them out, but they
use a number of symbols partisan to their beliefs (which I am informed is the more common veil under which to convery their message).
Again, I reiterate, I highly doubt Gaga has any true reconigition of what most of the symbology in her videos respresents or implies. She might come
across in interviews as eccentric and articulate, but I believe she plays the role of her character very well indeed. Knowing that it, she and her
ways will sell and people will continue to buy into it. As long as she's marketted as such, Lady Gaga will continue to sell.
