Lady Gaga Fans Paying People To Trash Madonna (PLUS: Watch the Video for 'Give Me All Your Luvin')
What is this? Young people have no respect, and I can't believe any of this is condoned by Lady Gaga. But The Lady Gaga Project (Where Little Monsters come together to help Mother Monster with her music and causes) will pay 5 to 10 cents per page hit to disparage Madonna's latest set, MDNA, on different web sites after they post reviews. (Huffington Post especially.) What are they looking for? "People to make negative and cruel insults on different websites...long, negative comments on any Google News approved site...that cover one of the following topics:
1. Madonna's new single is flopping. It's getting bad reviews.
2. Madonna is a has-been. Lady Gaga is more current.
3. "WE" is getting really bad reviews.
4. Madonna is a copycat, not Lady Gaga.
5. Madonna's Super Bowl show was awful.
6. Madonna's body parts (mostly her grotesque arms)."
At press time the site had more than 30 people on board. If this site is in keeping with Lady Gaga's message of "Be yourself and love who you are and be proud because you were born this way," then we say more power to both Lady Gaga and her fans.
As an artist, Lady Gaga owes so much to Madonna--even beforeGaga plagiarized, oh, "Express Yourself," and "La Isla Bonita," and "Vogue," and "Like a Prayer," and "Oh Father" in a bunch of her songs.
We doubt that rabid Lady Gaga fans will make a difference in the reception of Madonna's latest, anyway--especially if Give Me All Your Luvin' (Feat. M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj) is any indication! It's ultra-catchy, and Nicky Minaj and M.I.A. are totally on Queen Madge's court. According to Perez Hilton, the deluxe edition of her new album has already reached No. 1 on iTunes even though it's not officially out til Mar. 24.
