You think that Gaga is original or at least she’s trying to be with all her different, crazy and outrageous outfits? After seeing these pictures, you may reconsider your opinion. She is a real copy paste actually…

So true.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 16 21:25
..but all those other worthless "singers" are copy/pastes themselves from real artists like David Bowie, Klaus Nomi or even Marilyn Manson.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 16 21:30
Agree with Bael. Actually, her clothing in "Telephone", for what I saw in the picture, because I didn't the videoclip, is more a copy of Klaus Nomi than of Gwen Stefani.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 16 21:40
The funny thing is, most of the women she imitates are far more beautiful. Especially Kylie.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 16 22:47
I HOPE she's copying off these people because Lady Gaga doesn't deserve to listen to someone as great as Klaus Nomi.

God, she's a talentless hack.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 16 22:47
But boy can she make a good music. Yes. Point taken though on the wardrobe.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 16 23:10
Very true. I really hate her. She's the ugliest woman on Earth.

i guess gaga is just better than those artists since she can pull off their trends better they can.

Please tell me that you've got someone else appearing in kermits, steak, and a womb. This list doesn't surprise me at all, but thanks for illustrating what I'm hoping most of the non-14 year old population already knows!
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 1:53
I don't think any of the people listed are desperate enough for attention to wear kermits, steak and a womb.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 2:00
I still don't get what people see in her that is so amazing. She is ugly, use voice modulators and copies practically every single woman who has ever stepped on a stage to sing...
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 2:09
Wow...not so cutting edge after all
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 3:17
@voodoo: from "before she went gaga" she apparently can hold a note and is competent on the piano, so people think that she's ~*~SUPER TALENTED~*~ and different from other mindless pop stars.

I can't figure out why no one points out that Let's Dance and Poker Face are exactly the same songs note-for-note but with different lyrics.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 3:47
Who cares. If it touches someone and if they like it, it's irrelevant if it's original.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 9:23
GaGa is a joke, Forza Madonna (D) ..***..
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 10:11
For me is just a phenomenon made by stylyst, hair-stylist and press...
She will deflate like a balloon in a few years...
In this case you explore only her style..But listen to her last song "Born this Way" Is identical to "Expres yourself"
by Madonna...

Agreed with Bael. Great list.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 12:42
as much as i find her incredibly pathetic and repugnant when she started dressing like louise brooks was when i truly had contempt for her. plus, i'm sick of singers thinking wearing fetish wear makes them edgy.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 14:51
yeah,i don't understand that why she is so popular in China.
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Mar 17 19:05
everytime I see GaGa I can't help but thinking of David Bowie and Elton John..
Posted: 3 years ago at Apr 3 3:55
It's not Gaga's dirty little secret that she is, as was never more poignantly put, "copy/paste". She's doing it on purpose, and she talks about it in interviews. She calls herself a student of fame; and everything she does and wears is painstakingly planned out down to the tiniest detail. She's not the first person who used someone else's works to make a statement, but she might be the one who does it best.

That's my opinion; I don't expect anyone else to agree with it. I'm a Gaga fan, and I think she's intelligent and interesting. And yes, she does have talent when it comes to music.

Please, this list is just awful. There's some clothes Gaga already said was insipirated in some artists like Madonna and Minogue, but there are some comparisons in this list that are laughable.
If Lady Gaga goes out with a white t-shirt, everyone will say "omg madonna wore a white t-shirt 20 years ago omg gaga copied her"
Please, you're jealous because Lady Gaga is making success , stop that.

I am not Gaga's fan but I kinda like her. And abigailpearl, I agree with you :)
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at May 7 20:12
What's weird about her is not just these outfits but that she wears them in everyday life and not just when she makes appearances and in concerts. She does have some talent though, I was nearly blown away by her performance of "Paparazzi" on SNL a year or two ago.

Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at May 12 4:33
Very nicely put, abigailpearl. I couldn't have said it better myself. :]

I'm definitely a Gaga fan and, honestly, I think she does most of the looks that she's 'copied' better than the originals ever dreamed of rocking theirs.
Besides, so many looks have been done in the industry, I imagine that it's hard for people to come up with anything that's going to be completely new. Most just freshen up and revamp previous wardrobes and styles, obviously. It's going to happen, people.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at May 12 15:21
Read Coby's original post:

This list points out to people who think she's original or has anything original to say, that she, in fact, is just taking what came before and trotting it back out again. She's not outrageous and she's not original. It doesn't have anything to do with her as a songwriter, musician, or singer.

Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at May 23 19:42
Perhaps YOU don't care for her; but after seeing her HBO special, SNL and today on the view (and that show my friend is 'Pressure'. I see her as a tiny little 5-1'(105lbs) kid
with an outrageous voice. She tries to come off 'Bizarre' and does it well. There have been so many pop stars/outfits; it's a little hard not to look like someone from the 'past'.
Her album hits today. Let's see how it does. Copy/paste. Give me a break.
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at May 30 0:48
hmm the gwen stefani one.. gagas video is inspired by tarantino movies which are a copy of sexploitation, grindhouse films. that scene is jus ta copy/inspired by women in prison films from the grindhouse era. i dont think she was necessarily copying gwen. i do think she copies Madonna all the time, but its not like she doesnt admit to be "inspired" by all these artists.

no much of a Gaga fan myself.
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at Jun 2 4:34
i cant stand this ugly tranny! i agree with dmk46 about the fact that its almost impossible for a pop star to wear something that hasnt been worn before by another pop star but gaga DOES copy madonna constantly! its getting to the point where EVERYTHING she does is a rip-off or lame imitation of something madonna did in the 80s or 90s. her "shock tactics" are wearing thin and hopefully, she/he will burn out in the next couple years! i cant stand looking at that hideous face!

Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 18 13:54
She's not a bad singer, however this game of wearing and copying these people's styles on "purpose" isn't reeeally holding up. I see the side of her making a statement and the other viewpoint of her copying and I must say that she's just flat out copying people and doing it on purpose isn't really making sense and not likely.

don't really care if she copies other cause despite all those she copies there are still so many of her outfits that's original ;)
when you find all the similarities you don't think about all the things that are different!
and there's many of her outfits here thats not alike the others ;)

A local radio show did a spot about some of her songs that were essentially the same as Madonna’s as well...
I would say she is a good entertainer but she certainly not original.

Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Oct 30 5:58
I love when people have nothing better to do than make comments about things they know nothing about. Forming an opinion without knowledge is really stupidity at it's best. Gaga pays homage to other artists with her tributes to their past looks. Her latest video it a tribute to Pat Benatar. Many of her videos emulate other videos and artists; it is the most complimentary thing you can do to honor people you admire. She is not denying the source of her fashion statements. Learn before you speak.

I remember people saying that Aguelira was copying Gaga recently with her new album but you're right she was on the quirky stuff beforehand.

I think she copies Bjork more than anyone. Bjork for me was the original cooky artist.

I could not agree more that Lady Gaga is a copycat and she seriously needs to consider finding her own sense of style.

I can't count the number of times my neighbour posts on facebook how 'original' and 'unique' Gaga is.

I laugh every single time at such lies!

Very nice list! "Lady Ha-ha" should find out her own style...
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at May 15 16:49
Lady Gaga is a good piano player, a semi passable singer and a questionable song writer that rips off other artists musically. Her "look", be it an intentional rip-off or not, is still a rip off. Saying it's intentional just tells me you have nothing original to say or do and that you are a fame whore.

Not a fan, but I think she's very smart to be able to sucker so many people into her deception.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jun 13 22:55
I think there might be three issues here that are getting confused.

Firstly, because so many people do appreciate Lady Gaga as being original and unfortunately aren't aware of many of the people that she's ripping of (for as people of said there are heaps of people not even in this list, for example David Bowie), I think this list is a valid statement. It shouldn't be dismissed as being ignorant of the fact that Lady Gaga was intentionally copying people for some sort of aesthetic effect. If she was her fans should be aware of this and not bother the rest of the world by going on about how truly creative she is.

Secondly, if (as many of you have said) Lady Gaga is intentionally copying people as a form of artistic expression then everyone has the right to ask what the worth of such expression is. Also, everyone has the right to consider that worth to be nada. Again the fact that she might have been doing something unoriginal intentionally does not excuse her from being judged for her unoriginality.

Thirdly, but this is just my personal opinion, I cannot understand how Gaga, who so obviously appreciates such truly creative artists, can be satisfied with her own artistic accomplishments to date. If she has such great taste why is she making such tasteless (or at least in my opinion) music? Or course the music might not be the point, the art piece she might really care about is the whole spectacle of her life. But judging her as a musician, one feels that she is not even trying to create good music. I believe that she could be quite a talented person, possibly, but her general attitude seems to be that people like shit music, I'll give them shit music. For all I knoe perhaps she even thinks, I can copy people because a lot of people want know who I am copying and will consider me original, but when people call me a copy-cat I will say its a part of my artistic self-expression.

oops!

have not "of" in the first paragraph

won't not "want" in the last paragraph
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Jun 13 23:01
Also the point I was trying to get at in the end was that Lady Gaga seems to represent a failure to even try and be creative, which perhaps says more about the world we live in then it does about whether she is talented or not.

If anyone's interested I know Camille Paglia wrote an article about Lady Gaga in which she calls her a respresentation of the "death of sex". Not sure what it's called though.

Je ne suis pas du tout fan de Lady Gaga, mais étant donné que j'ai vu une liste du même genre sur Madonna, je peux comprendre que de simples hommages (comme le clip de Alejandro par rapport à Vogue) peuvent être interprêtés comme des copies ce qui est faux bien entendu. C'est facile de faire croire qu'une star a copié une autre! Il faut juste trouver 2 photos similaires et savoir laquelle a été prise en premier !

Jealous Madonna fans. Jealous Madonna fans everywhere. You can't call somebody a copycat because they just so happen to wear a similar outfit. That's like me walking down the street, seeing somebody wearing a similar outfit to me, then saying “Like, OMG! You totally copied me! You're a copycat!”. I don't see why it's different because they're celebrities. Madonna copied Marilyn Monroe for about 15 years, maybe you should make a list about that, huh? Gaga wore the purple wig before Madonna actually. Some of your comparisons are so off, they're laughable. Try again, dude.
Posted: 1 month, 3 weeks ago at Feb 26 17:15
Hey Electra Heart, do you even listen to Madonna or Lady Gaga or do you just jack off at pictures of them? Yeah that's what I thought. You don't listen to music. Your entire page is nothing but you ranking celebrities.


You all piss your little panties wet and scream about how bad Madonna, Britney, Gaga, Cyrus and whoever else are for being a "copy paste" yet none of you listen to the fucking music. You're basis of argument is comparing pictures and then whining.

In translation, the fact is you don't like them. You hate Lady Gaga for a stupid reason, and you hate Madonna for a stupid reason, just like all the complaints about Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears and Rhianna.

You would probably have a plausible argument if you were comparing how they sound, but even this is proven false since pop music has always been about copying each other. I never see anyone that wants to talk about how Elvis Presley got his dance movies and his songs from black artists. Or how about the fact Led Zeppelin spent decades in court for plagiarism and faced law suits due to the fact they were covering old Blues songs and not giving credit to the original authors.

Maybe you people should start listening to fucking music and not starring at pictures all day. I have only been on this site, what 2 months? And in only 2 months, I find I'm one in a minority of writers that actually listens to music and reviews albums, where most people just want to stare at pictures all day and bitch and moan about people they don't even like.


I bet that over half of you on here slamming Lady Gaga and Madonna, have never even bought one of their albums before. So shut the fuck up about them. You don't even know what kind of artist they are to really judge them. You can't judge a book by the cover, and you can't hear with your eyes. What you see is not part of the equation. Even if you did listen to them, if it was someone you did like, you would call it an "inspiration" and praise them for it. But since it's someone you hate, oh they are a Copy and Paste.

Fact is, you all hate them for bullshit reasons and don't want to admit it. You need an excuse to hate Gaga just like all the people need some bullshit excuse to say they don't listen to Chris Brown since he's a "woman beater" even though those same people will watch movies with Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Christian Bale and various other woman beaters in them.


Your arguments are pathetic and that's about all I have to say.
