Lady Gaga's Newest Music Thing is Actually Pretty Good

8/29/2013 6:00 AM PDT, by Sarah Taylor

So, all right. The lyrics, to be quite frank, aren't great. They're this: "I know you want me. You're just a pig in a human's body. Squealer, squealer, squeal out! You're so disgusting. You're just a pig inside. Swine." Not genius, you know? But the music is pretty great -- kind of Pink Floyd-esque -- and Gaga's little demonstration on the drums was pretty great, too. 

The video is from a rehearsal for the iTunes Festival, which is going to be on September 1st in London, so you can assume that the full performance will be floating around sometime thereafter. 

If absolutely nothing else, the song is curious ... and it could be her best "ARTPOP" single yet, huh?

You're fucking kidding me, right?

you people are ridiculous. You're all about the big, sweeping knee-jerk reaction stories and it's so lame. Pink Floyd? maybe for half a second. it more resembles Hole, and for that, it is awesome.

If you don't like it, don't watch. I prefer watching lady gag gag anyways.

I agree. My first thought is that is had a Courtney Love vibe to it, but Hole is a truly raw, tortured reality to it, and this is a pop-song parody of that.

As usual Gaga is all cock, and no balls.

I'm not the biggest Pink Floyd fan, but I know enough of them to know this doesn't really resemble them in any way. If anything, it's like a pop- y version of Nine Inch Nails, especially with the pig and sex references, the whispering followed by manic playing.
It's all been done before...

Sarah dear,

I love you with the power of 1,000 burning suns, but this is nothing like Pink Floyd. They were geniuses, she's a joke in the end. Roger Waters takes shits with more talent that Lady Gaga

I'm sure you can find some sound clips that mimic a similarity, but you could do the same thing if you put a family of monkeys in a room with a bunch of garbage cans and a key board.

Doesn't make it Pink Floyd, or music

Its ok to admit you're wrong. Some guys find that attractive. Some girls two, if that's the way you swing.

My toilet bowl makes a zillion and 1 sounds, and most of them sound like Lady Gaga. Only a handful sound like Pink Floyd.

What's your point?

This Yawn.

GaGa is so insecure and looking for attention that she will go to any lengths. All the attention has shifted from Gaga to Miley and this is her way of getting back into the limelight. Really, who the hell dresses like a jobless Vegas stripper to take a flight and then walks thru an airport.

This p*g doesn't care if its bad attention as long as its ATTENTION. She knows she has a limited talent this shot of fame is going to be short lived so she gives us shock treatment rather than talent.

Lady Gaga, Stefani Germanotta, or whatever one wants to call her, was a privileged upper class member of the type of people who fund records -- not dance to, build their lives around, and listen to them. She is the spoiled only child of a right-wing burghermeister, whose worst moment in life was likely not being given the right breed of Arabian horse or exactly the Porsche she wanted. The average man or woman, dancing breathlessly in a nightclub in hours snatched between working two minimum wage jobs, cannot relate to such a person, or her narcissist demand for "Applause".

I hope Americans, Brits and the civilized nations are saving their money.

This article is a joke or what? It could be her best "ARTPOP" single yet, huh? Another flop, it seems.

Come on Miss Taylor and other journalists, you guys really needs music an intensive basic course for before writing. This is nothing like Pink Floyd. Gaga is just an annoying noise with no substance. Grow up!

This is what happens when mediocre NY musicians take the stage. They need shock value in order to make up for how terrible they are musically.

Lady Gaga was a symptom of a corporate entertainment industry become too overhype, too incestuous and too unaccountable, too out of touch with the streets real music comes from and the tastes of real audiences.

Gaga is too self-conscious and serious to be fun, and there are too many half baked ideas thrown together for it to make sense. Her songs now are just random hooks Madonna-ed together with some glossy production, marketing and given titles that the songs themselves don't live up to.

Her new music video OMG isn't art. It is an epic moronic hot mess and commercialism trying desperately to make her song so addictive, and it lacks all the warmth, emotion, depth and accessibility to a 18 -yo jobless teenager and Monster to watch YouTube. Applause is the 1st single and just imagine the rest of the songs in Artpop.

Dismiss this record's company puppet!

GaGa is getting boring, repetitive and boring.
