access 99 cover 297x400 You Know You Can Act When You Feign Stupidity

I recently read an interview with Lady Gaga in Access Magazine. The things she talked about made me think about the immense pressure celebrities are under to be unintelligent.

This is because: Sex Sells.

I know that, Lady Gaga knows that, advertisers know that…actually, I think most people know that. Anyways, the point of the matter is, Lady Gaga sells sex with her music, her videos, and with every appearance she makes.

All of her music is about sex and money, all of her outfits barely cover her parts, and her music videos show her doing some fairly explicit things that probably shouldn’t be shown to the public: especially young girls who idolize her and aspire to be like her.

The thing is, when you delve deeper into what she is thinking and who she truly is, Lady Gaga really isn’t as superficial as she appears. LG, whose birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelica Germanotta, went to the same high school as Paris Hilton (although, I wouldn’t say that’s a compliment) and she studied at the Tisch School at NYU, a very well-respected school of the arts, but she chose to leave because she felt art was better learned by experience.

That move, in itself, is one reason to respect LG’s knowledge of the performing arts.

Lady Gaga seems to know a lot about Pop Art, which she claims to be her style. She also knows the artists, such as Andy Warhol, and their works, which she emulates.

So why the constant references to such lowly things?

It’s what sells, it’s what makes Pop Art, and it’s what defines Lady Gaga. She enjoys her work, but she feels like people don’t take her seriously because of the subject-matter she covers.

Now, I don’t blame anyone for not taking her work seriously. Honestly, all it is good for is dancing. Her lyrics have no depth and her music videos lack creativity in terms of new ideas. I’m not trying to be condescending, I love some of her songs, but they are definitely not the right way to get people’s attention as an artistic genius.

Lady Gaga is not alone when it comes to celebrities who dumb themselves down for the public: apparently Lauren Conrad is quite the savant, as depicted in Family Guy’s We Love You, Conrad episode.

I hope that we can find a way to accept celebrities and all of their assets, including intelligence. We could really use things other than sex, money, and violence being thrown at us from every direction.

    My boyfriend showed me an interview with Lady Gaga that she did in Australia where she basically said that all she wants in this life is (insert something explicit and kinda gross here) and I was thinking to myself, really? That is all you want in this life? How sad. I do love some of her songs myself but also feel very similarly as far as respect of an artistic genius goes.

    If SE was smart (and had a heart) they’d make this thing for every carrier. Take over Android, get buzz in the handheld arena again and take on Apple in a big way – don’t give this to AT&T and call it a day. I know SE hates CDMA but make it for Verizon and AT&T at the least, and Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile if you’re serious about this thing making an impact. It’s gorgeous and this is very exciting. The choice of touchpads instead of analog sticks is interesting. It could work, but odd since we know they are capable of thin nubs for sliders (Go).
