I really didn't know where to place this, so I chose media.

Lady Gaga launches social site, 'Little Monsters'


www.cnn.com...

Little Monsters, now in invite-only beta testing, is the pop princess's effort at creating a network built around her fan base -- which she's dubbed the aforementioned "monsters."


Even with Gaga's massive social-media presence (she was the first artist to hit 1 billion YouTube video views), it remains an open question whether a social site devoted almost exclusively to her fans will have a big enough user base to fly.

At The Frisky, another CNN content partner, Tiffanie Drayton imagines chat on the site this way:

Little Monster 1: "Lady Gaga sure knows how to rock a bad-ass meat dress."

Little Monster 2: "I think that getup must have smelled horrible."

LittleMonsters.com Administrator: "Lady Gaga always smells like roses!" (squishes Little Monster 2) "Carry on with the idolatry you little monsters!"


I honestly can't stand this puppet. I believe her to be a master of double speak and purposefully causes confusion among her fans. For example, she tells them to always be yourself, yet she rarely ever goes anywhere without being in costume. I think she's an attention whore who gets off on creating shock values. Sure, we've seen this with many musical artists from the past, but she seems influential on a toxic level to me. It's as if she is only in love with herself and can't get enough attention to feed her voracious appetite. Also, are her young fans still going to want to be her "little monsters" when they're in their 20s?

Anyways, enough about her. We already know how Failbook tracks its members and gathers data on them, so is it a great idea to be getting a younger crowd socializing online where they're going to be uploading photos of themselves and goodness knows what else? We already see how people have become seriously addicted to Facebook, so I don't see this "Little Monsters" fan club/social networking site to be much more different. It's as if the spying and tracking has to engage a younger audience as a means of brainwashing them earlier to make getting spied on seem even more natural.

I, personally, can't wait until Gaga's fad train grinds to a screeching halt.

Thoughts?

Little Monsters social site? No thanks.

I think I'd rather bash my own head in with a 2x4.

I think this belongs in MUSIC.
Attention whore? She is an entertainer who performs in front of an audience. Isn't that part of the job?
I can't stand her since the meat dress but think she is like Madonna and others who make up for what they lack in actual talent with being outrageous and having a shock factor element around them.

Oh sweet Jesus a Lady Gaga social site a la Facebook? While I get the whole "fame and adoration" thing, this is just wrong on so many levels. A website for the fans, yeah, that I can dig, many artists have one. But this chick takes it to a whole 'nother level. Anyway, as one of NicePeter's Epic Rap Battles of History put it - 'Everything you do is just a rerun of Madonna!"...and she did it better!

Very true.
In my opinion, Gaga would be the lovechild if Madonna and Marilyn Manson had they gotten together.
