I have read and heard her interviews; she is no intellectual. An excellent huckster coupled with shrewd agents and talented business managers, to be sure. So you like her “music”, that is no reason to sully the name conservatism by trying to justify your enjoyment by claiming that she is a conservative. She is what she is, a well-managed attention whore.

Have you even listened to her lyrics/songs?

You haven’t. You are judging a book by its cover.

The show is a show, How did you feel about K.I.S.S. and Alice Cooper, and W.A.S.P. way back when? How do you like them now?

Just sayin’...

Sorry, mate, but I have listened to her music. Some rehashed disco and pseudo techno beats coupled with some passable lyrics. I know this is difficult for you to believe, but there are audiophiles you have taken the time to listen to her music and still find it to be annoying.

Yes, she has a shock-value show. Big whoop, if that is what turns you on, so be it. Remind me when KISS or Alice Cooper openly lobbied congresscritters for their pet causes. She sure as hell does.

‘I give her kudos for her business acumen.’

.....and there’s this...’THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND...’ so maybe we can depend on her to give jihadi’s heck in the future’

That’s ‘cause droids don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.

She is astute and intellectual, more so than most on this site.

Right. What we need in this counhtry are more intellectuals. Like Gaga, Madonna, Cher, Elvis (if only he were breathing), Bono, and other intellectuals.

I won’t remind you of Blackie Lawless then, or Alice Cooper...both lobbied.

Gene Simmons voted for the ‘won’, Jesus Christ on crutches....lobbied.

Who doesn’t freaking lobby? I don’t because I don’t have any freakin’ money....If you did, you would, so don’t take me there...

She is a personna; nothing more. Don’t take her to heart, she seems to disturb alot of folks. That seems to be the only way to make any money these days.

I am just a plain ole East TX. cattle wrangler and former musician. I can tell you when a duck is a duck.

Good day to you, and Bless Those Who Did Not Make it Home.

Or Marilyn Manson, Phd. Whatever happened to Marilyn? He wrote that groundbreaking work on quantum giga-fibrillators and then just disappeared. Like that J.D. Salinger guy.

Well, there ya go. As you have pointed out so well, she is completely derivative. I could care less about her schtick, I just don’t dig her music. Big whoop. If you dig it, fine; just don’t try to justify it by claiming that she is a signing dancing right winger. Fair enough?

On a more important note, what sort of cattle do you run?

You don’t know anything, and you are no conservative.

You seem to worship money and whatever it takes to get more of it.

No wonder you think so little of conservative Americans and freerepublic.

This just cost the GLBT crew a couple things. One is money, two is propaganda value in that country. Now that the muzzies scared her off, they will turn their threats toward other performers who are unislamic. But alas. music itself is unislamic.

The powers in the entertainment are now faced with a very real dilemma. Continue kissing muzzie ass and go broke/lose converts to their agenda or be honest with their treatment of muslim coverups going forward.

I think money and the gay agenda will trump muzzies in short order. It may turn out that (and I can’t belive I’m typing this...) Lady Gaga is the turning point we’ve waited for. Then again, we still have the lesser of those evils to contend with.

Metal has a much more dedicated and hardcore fan base than pop ever will. They’re usually a huge draw.

I have heard every song thanks to my future bride (a 42 y.o. woman).

UP THE IRONS! (said the long time Maiden fan);)

This is true. but I was more referring to the political side of the industry. Metal, while now commercialized to a greater degree than ever, is a lot less agenda oriented. That side of the fence should be fine, but the ‘Britany’ crowd is (and always has been) the problem. For purposes of this issue anyway.

BUMP what you said.

I agree completely except, being old enough to have seen Madonna in her prime (at JFK Stadium - Live Aid), I would say Lady Gaga is more "Madonna redux" than "Madonna on steroids". Madonna was easily (and remains) as prone to frequent reinventions and outrageous costumes and dazzling showmanship as Lady Gaga. It is yet to be seen if Lady Gaga is as talented and durable as Madonna, but I sure do like some of her songs. Lady Gaga's performance HERE, playing piano and singing a song she wrote, is simply extraordinary.

Got to see Maiden, Dio and Motorhead at Cricket Pavilion in Phoenix. My then young daughter, whose only concert has been a Brittany show in Vegas and thought she had been to a ‘real concert’ became suddenly edumicated in the ways of ‘the Metal’ ;)

She’s been a metal chick every since. How could she not be? Dio, Maiden and Motorhead in 6 hours? That would convert the Pope ;)

When you have Lemmy screaming “The OUICE of SPOUIDES!”, followed by a contest between Dio and Dickenson seeing who can string out a high vibrato’d note for 2 minuets (to midnight?), well...that’s metal heaven right there.

Why don’t YOU go to Jakarta and denounce Islam if you’re so tough?

If she had gone through with it, and if she, any of her staff, or fans had been killed, you would be saying she was such a stupid idiot to be there in the first place.
