Eh well, she/he seems to enjoy what she/he is doing and is making a very good living doing so. So while I'm not a fan of his/her music, I must admit that her/his drive is indicative of talent. (Hmm, I've never had so much difficulty with a pronoun in my life until this post.)

She can sing, but that does not mean she did not sell her sole to the main stream industry witch exploits music. My girl friend can sing better then any one I have ever heard (I am a musician) but she will probably never be as famous as lady gaga. I do not respect her as a real musician "ma ma ma poker face"edit on 4-10-2011 by 8ILlBILl8 because: (no reason given)

I guess its the style of her songs that make her seem so talentless. The song in her video showed off her voice, her popular songs do not. Any one can sing those I guess mainstream music doesn't like anything that shows real talent. Maybe her "kookiness is is due to her inability to actually showcase her talent because the mainstream music industry inhibits that? Who knows, I still can't stand her, but I will admit underneath it all there is talent, although it is still nothing compared to some of my favorite singers.

She clearly has talent, but it's her personna (created for $$$ shock value) which taints that. The super slutty weird routine is old. If she did what she really excels at. it would be different, but instead the money machine dictates the output. I'm not a fan of of hers per say, but I REALLY love this song.
