Take me and Sarah Slean with you, and make a pit stop to the 20th century for Sylvia Plath. ALL I ASK

We'll buy a hippie 1960's combie van and start a revolution.  :icon_rr:

for the first time..ever really, I've started to like pop music.
mostly gaga.
well, exclusively gaga.

Once you like gaga, it's only a small step to Ke$ha.

Ke$ha is basically a bunch of bad rip offs of pop ideas thrown together, and it sounds like that.  You listen to it and go oh this sounds like a big pop song because of all the rip offs, not that it is actually good.

So I am pro-Gaga and not a Ke$ha fan at all  ;D

Gaga on the piano doing poker face got me, plus she does has lots of influences from the past 20-30 years of pop music but they are influences and blended with an overall style, unlike the cut and paste style of Ke$ha.

If Lady Gaga is an artist in the music industry, then all hope is lost forever and I will hasten my attempts to permanently take refuge in the 19th Century.

Who made you the art police? xD This is a wholly pointless conversation - art's completely subjective, that's what's so gorgeous about it. If one person thinks someone's work is art, then it's as much art as the next person's work.

Beat me to it  O0

But let us take a look at the visual arts for a second and one of the major artists of the early 20th century Duchamp.  If you want to talk about artist's creativity in how original their physical creation is you would hate his work:

Also I agree with you but then I never really liked pop music so I don't think it has gone downhill recently - most of it has always been lame. That isn't to say though that a simple song can't be good. Sometimes less is more, even in music.

I HAVE SEEN THEM LIVE. IT MAY HAVE EVEN BEEN THAT GIG.

My oninion is not definiitive, not at all. This is merely a discussion where we civilised 'boxers can bitch and otherwise complain about pop music.

Art's subjective but that's not to say what Gaga does is art.

Also, renaissances bring about new things, new ideas. The concept of renaissance isn't anyone's idea; the ideas it brings about are.

I have seen them live too but only once. Unlike my sister who has seen them many times because she has a weird thing for Jordan.

Only concert I've seen live that was funnier than Axis of Awesome was Tenacious D.
