>>> We liked the Big Band music. Our parents thought anything with horns in it was the Devils own.
Precisely illustrating the point I’ve made in several of the Lady Gaga threads. The drama queens moaning she is the Whore of Babylon are oblivious that every generation has the old fogies moaning about the “depraved” music of the kids.
I happened to catch lady gaga on Letterman. Can’t stand Letterman anymore, but wanted to see who this gal was. Okay - she dressed weird. (The first 10-minutes of the interview her face was covered completely by a thick cloth - not just a see-through veil!) But, her conversation was decent.
Letterman praised her for being to the show so early, rehearsing, being prepared, etc. She said something like “Being able to be on your show - we wanted to get it right.” He said something like “But you’re the big star!” She replied “Naw, I’m just a girl from Long Island” or something.
She also talked about how she has her own line of clothing and costume designers and makers. And praised them on being able to change all of the support dancers costumes overnight for some big awards thing based on her last minute change.
She sounded very professional and business-like. I don’t recall the song she did, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.
In the documentary about the band RUSH, they talk about opening for KISS back in the day. They said something like “Say what you want about Kiss or their music, but they taught us a lot about work ethic, putting on a show, and being in business.” It sounded like Lady Gaga is about the same.
