The Stupid

it burns: “The Obama administration is making a big stink about Israeli settlements on the West Bank, but you know what causes a lot more radical anti-American sentiment in the Muslim world? Lady Gaga, argues Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal .” [Newser]

I agree. In fact, we should adopt Fundamentalist Islamic values, clothing and sartorial styles (chador for you, Lefty!), stop educating our female children, kill our gays, and convert to Mohammedanism.

This will ensure our safety from terrorism.

I saw this earlier and thought what the fuck?
then I saw WSJ and thought, oh, yeah.

@Dodgerblue: She’s kinda plain to be Jewish, once you scrape off all the make -up and outrageous costumery.

@IanJ: I admit – made-up or not, I’d hit it … and wait – her real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – not exactly a Jewish name.

@Dodgerblue: @IanJ: @blogenfreude:

All I know is that she took the command to put her seatback in the upright position awfully seriously in that photo.

@blogenfreude: Oh, I wasn’t saying anything about whether or not she was attractive. Just that when you can actually catch a glimpse of her face through the distractions, it’s relatively girl-next-door, in the big nose and receding chin sort of way. She’s nice enough looking, but I usually think of Jewish girls as having more striking features.

OMG I LUV LADY GAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!1!

(sorry, they put a chip in all gay guys that automatically produces that response. It annoys me too)

I knew it was the fault of women and teh gays!

I’ve been ignoring this gaga person (much like I ignored Marilyn Manson and Cisco of the Ginormous Wonder Balls), and she hasn’t gone away. Am I missing anything?

I’m embarrassed for knowing this, but her ex-manager is suing her for a gazillion dollars, claiming he came up with the whole Lady Gaga shtick.

Oh, and they fucked. They don’t now.

@JNOV:

SHE’S FABULOUS!!!!!!1!!!!1111!!!!1!

(I really need to get that removed).

@nojo: Thanks for that. Other people’s sex makes me feel excluded, so meh.

@Tommmcatt Loves The Giant Floating Head: Prove it. Got a video link?

ADD: And every single time I read her name, I get that gawd-awful Queen song in my head — “radio gaga, radio googoo…” Not a great association.

@JNOV:

That’s pretty fabulous.

I would show you the Elton John duet at the Grammys, but they have some dang copyright or something.

Incidentally, she gets the name from that song. She’s a huge Freddie Mercury fan.

Well, let’s see. She looks like C[h]ristina Aguilera but lacks the pipes, but I’m glad to see Michael and Janet Jackson’s former choreographers getting some work…

@IanJ: IMHO, she’s girl-next-door goodlooking … and my GND was dark and Italian. If only I were 10 years old again ….

@Tommmcatt Loves The Giant Floating Head: Fat bottomed girls, they make the rockin’ world go ’round.

Sorry.

I thought the terrorists were attacking us because they hate freedom. Why does Bret Stephens hate freedom? :)

@JNOV: C. Aguilera – another girl from the ‘burgh!

I love lady gaga, and I don’t have the chip, at least, I don’t think so. Youtube up her early stuff, there are youtubes of her, playing in her college cafeteria as an undergrad, she is real, even if not enormously talented.

She’s funky-hot. Funky looking, but hot.

@ナビスコ: Christina Aguilera is an enormous ball of talent, and I will not hear anyone speak ill of her.

I also have ignored / been ignorant of the Lady pretty much. The little I’ve heard of her music, methinks mediocre in the extreme. Love the over-the-top-ness, but that’s just the same way I love Madonna. Great pop rocket, but I wouldn’t listen to any of that cripe on my iPod.

Anyway, “wanna take a ride on your disco stick” is worth something. Not sure what, but, something.

@Promnight: So, my chip must be defective.

Also: Bret Stephens, obviously, has never spent a few minutes in a Lebanese cafe, waiting for his take-out falafel, watching Arab satellite-teevee videos of scantily-clad Scheherazades writhing across the screen in their burkhinis.

@Pedonator: By his logic, we won’t stop pissing off the jihadis until we all convert and pray to Mecca several times a day. Thats the way to beat them, join them, then they won’t hate us for our freedoms.

@Promnight: I think by his logic, Israel should simply claim the entire Middle East, establish settlements in Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt, and then dare those backward Arabs to make a move, content in the knowledge that US America will continue to supply as many cluster bombs and “depleted”-uranium-tipped bullets as necessary to make possession 9/10 of the law.

@Pedonator: Guns don’t kill people. Usually, it’s the supersonic high-density projectile that does it.

@Promnight: Oh, no argument whatevs, Prom. She’s got a great set of pipes, and her ‘burgh roots just make it so much better. Shakira remains, however, the pinnacle of musical femalatitude for me, outside of punk gals named “Kim”.

@Pedonator: Word, Ped. I also get a gazillion bollywood channels over here (be still, Nojo’s heart), and let me tell you that they should call those outfits “sorrys” not saris for the amount of “whoops, she done it again” moments caused to the lotus-eating fanboys.

Wait. You mean she’s a biological female? Really? I did not know that.

@IanJ: True.

@nojo: In what is surely a sign that the end times are upon us, the complaint is one of the “new trial court documents” featured on the Westlaw splash screen.

@Prommie: How is one to know? I thought she was a drag queen.

@Benedick: You do realize it’s this sort of speculation that probably motivated this Grammy travesty, right? (WARNING: Retina-searing link!)

@flippin eck: Well, Marilyn Manson really does have a heavy glam influence so he may as well rock the Mrs Ziggy Stardust look.

@flippin eck: I have to go and lie down in a darkened room. So. The make-up ‘artist’ didn’t spot the Peace sign on the mic wrist? Like that’s not going to pull focus? Amateurs.
