So, the second album is out. And, surprise surprise, it's getting good reviews. It'll sell millions and the train will move along.
I'm not a Ga Ga fan, it must be said. I'm not even close to her demographic. The whole 'style over substance' thing doesn't appeal to me. Which is unusual because I'm a guy who usually loves style over substance. But all the costumes, wigs and makeup are only there to distract from the, quite frankly, mediocre music.
Of course, I realise that nothing I say will make any difference in whether you like Lady Ga Ga or not. If you do, you'll tell me to get fucked and, if you don't, you'll agree and we can all move on. The thing I wonder is, where will she go from here?
Everyone knows that you can only stay in the limelight for so long. Especially these days. You have to do things ever more outrageous to gain attention and, if it's one thing that Ga Ga loves, it's attention. Says the man writing a blog. Ah hem.
But, the flavour of the month is just that, flavour of the month. Eventually, people will find someone else and Ga Ga will be evaluated pretty harshly in the years to come. My opinion people, no need to jeer. So where does she go? Where does she go when people come to realise that all that puffery is hiding pretty obvious nothingness?
Well, here's my take: she'll do what people like me accuse her of - she go naked. The only thing that will be left, will be to regress. She'll shave her head and do a whole album of just piano and vocal. No beats, no synths, no vocal posturing, no costumes. Just a bald headed girl and her piano.
And that would be something I might actually listen to. Really listen to.
Remember that, if this actually happens, you heard it here first.
