What about her? She was smart enough as a young adult to exploit her sexuality to make up for minimal vocal talent, and was smart enough to let her team produce everything she ever did to make up for minimal creativity. Though unfortunately she didn’t have the resources to create the proper safety net of good influences around her, which led to her breakdown. The direct result of being commoditized and objectified by her own team. A literal puppet that was seen as nothing more than dollar signs with tits, and never ever being held to a high standard of creativity or authenticity (things she could be proud of). She kinda sorta got back on track, allegedly taking an interest in producing her own music nowadays but she’s so far gone; she only exists as the symbolic shell of her former phenomenon self (which was barely there to begin with). Her fans don’t even expect greatness from her. They don’t even expect mediocrity. As long as she can stand and exhale she’ll have millions of fans happy to witness her presence. It’s really sad, I feel. A cautionary tale of stardom and mental health that barely anyone cares to talk about. Instead people just want to enable the behavior of treating these pop stars like goddesses for doing literally nothing interesting.
Do I like her music? Sure, of course. The same way I like sleeping in on the weekend, or like peanut butter M&M’s. But as an entertainer there’s nothing there, and as a person I just worry about her health.
I guess the difference is that I don’t see Gaga stans running around shading other singers for their failures, it’s only when Gaga’s brought into the conversation. Like, I had no idea that Katy’s prior single didn’t chart well. I had no idea Miley’s tour is getting bad reviews. I had no idea that…
I don’t like pop stars that insult Gaga for attention, pop stars that claim to support the lgbt community but write homophobic lyrics, and I don’t like pop stars that changed their look circa 2010 to mimic the “be a fashion weirdo” aesthetic that Gaga launched back into the mainstream, without acknowledging Gaga as their influence for doing so and acting like they introduced the trend. Katy has done all of that. Simultaneously.
