Lady Gaga Rocks To Queen & Iron Maiden

Lady Gaga insists she's a rock chick at heart, posing and collaborating with famous rockers - while her fans kill a cat to create a meat dress.

Lady Gaga Rocks To Queen & Iron Maiden
0
Lady Gaga might be wearing a pop crown, but through the meat dresses and mile of make-up, there's a rock fan hiding underneath. Not only is she teaming up with Queen guitarist Brian May on her new album - after all, she did name herself after the song "Radio Gaga" - but she's been attending some rather heavy gigs. For her 666th twitter message she posted about seeing Iron Maiden live: "The Number of the Beast. Having' beers listening to Maiden w the New York Boys. Happy 666 Twitterland." She went on to post a photo posing with Iron Maiden drummer Nicko Mcbrain, calling him a "sexy beast". On another occasion, she expressed her delight to hear positive comments from Ozzy Osbourne during her appearance on Ryan Seacrest's radio show back in February. Seacrest played a sample from the Black Sabbath frontman saying "She's very clever, very interesting. She's wacky and I like the zaniness of that woman." "Are you kidding? I'm the biggest Black Sabbath fan on Earth!" she replied. Gaga went on to explain how her centrepiece as a go-go dancer was around the song "Black Sabbath". Ultimately, she can try and impress the rock crowd, but like everything with Gaga, it all feels like a bit of a show. She's earned respect from the mainstream media, but UG readers might dispute whether she can earn respect from a heavier crowd. In other news, a Gaga fan killed their cat this week to emulate the meat dress of her idol. They are now being treated for depression. Meanwhile, a UG writer is avoiding the temptation to say this is because they miss their cat. Thanks for the report to Music Rooms and Blabbermouth.

    She is immensely talented but refuses to show it. She might make "soulless pop music" singles but surely it wouldnt hurt to have a couple of good songs in a whole album??

    The fact is that she's all style and no substance. Being the biggest sensation around in the music business would be worthwhile if any of the waves she was making were actually related to music. Fuck off Lady Gaga

    I actually like her music alittle I don't listen to it when I'm alone but in a car full of friends its the funnest shit ever to have everybody terribly singing along to her songs Has to look wierd from the outside though seeing 4 or 5 metal guys yelling lady gaga songs in the car

    Her musics usually not that bad, but her last single was horrible. If that was influenced by rock I'll be surprised

    Her live opening act was playing Slayer, Pantera, Suicidal Tendencies, Anthrax, and Rage Against the Machine before the show for the "pop crowd", I was ****ing loving it. Stephani picks these people to represent her, she has a good natural taste in music for sure.

In my opinion what she does is the most primitive kind of music and I can't really respect such a person, no matter what her abilities are. But thats only my opinion.

    This just made me lose even more respect for her. Not only is she a supposed 'metal-head' but this metal head goes and comes out with the same generic shit she does. Just goes to show how much of a sell out she really is.

    This, and my thoughts are it would be interesting if she would do like Green Day did with Foxburo Hot Tubs and create a band/artist that does the more Metal/Hard Rock related stuff, just knowing her obvious pop success would likely mean this would carry over just due to reputation.

    This is quite possibly the biggest facepalm comment I've seen on here. and 9/10 comments on here are facepalm worthy; including my comment.

    now, as much as i love Death metal, i love a good melody. and she has great melodys. and a fantastic voice. but it wouldnt work in a metal setting. it just wouldnt. i respect her. she doesnt use autotune. i mean, the music is runofthemill pop, but it not bubblegum pop, at least. I dont like it that much, but she deserves some repsect. alsoi'dgothere
    1000101
    yeah, i hate most of her music. but i really respect her as an artist, and i don't doubt for a second that she's got some roots in rock music. on another note, how the hell do you do a go-go dance to black sabbath? i feel like that song is pretty difficult to make sexy haha.

    I would love if she teamed up with some of metals greatest doomsters and made a psychadelia doom album. It would be ****ing rad.

    I actually respect her, i think Lady Gaga is a great entertainer, composer and a good piano player. She's actually doing something different that might not be pop. Her way of composing is interesting, check out her songs when they're played unplugged. With that said, let me get my balls back a so i can listen to DEATH THRASH HARDCORE METAL to gain the metal community respect back.

    This is one of the few things me and lady gaga have in common. We both think iron maiden is amazing

She was enrolled in a music course in university, so she is at least grade 8 on her instrument (piano I presume) Most alt rock guitarists would simply know a few pentatonic boxes, basic chords, power chords, a couple of diatonic mode shapes, maybe a bit more. She has a good voice without autotune and is an entertainer. She simply represents the hitwriters who write songs for people such as Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers, yet she can play and perform them herself. Hell, I'm not even a fan of Lady Gaga, but I respect her.
    SANITY!! ON MY UG seriously, Gaga may not be an amazing musician, but I remember seeing a video on Youtube of her playing piano pre-famous and it was some good stuff (hell, even what she's playing now isn't terrible)

    She writes her own songs, so she one ups Ozzy on that. Although I'm not a fan of pop or her by any measure, she at least has some degree of integrity. Good on her.

    Haha, I was at the Maiden show that she wasn't at, would've been interesting to see her there, though.
    hassler
    OK, so now we know she's a rock poseur, what a surprise! Her music is soulless pop and a faint afterthought because makeup and outfits are the priority. She's a performance artist first and foremost, the music is a distant second.

    I agree she's talented. Too bad she doesn't use any talent in her music.

    Yeah GaGa loves classic rock, I've seen a video of her covering D'yer Maker by Led Zep and she sounded great
    CameronElektra
    Love it all. Had "Judas" on repeat last night and started tabbing out the Guitar Pro for it. GaGa's awesome, and I can't wait for the new album. Also, can't wait to hear Brian May's bit. It's gonna stick out like a saw thumb

    I hate when people use the term "Sell out" stop jerking off Kurt Cobains corpse and get a grip! people sell out every day for various reasons for money, but when you do it for the wrong reason then fk off. People gotta do what they gotta do for money can't fault them. Lady Gagas music is pretty darn good especially Born This Way. I'm starting to think she has what it takes to beat Madonna for pop queen.

    Why is Lady Gaga news constantly on UG? Her liking rock will not change the music she puts out. I thought she was Lady Gaga because like, people go Gaga for her. I also don't realy know if Queen is a rock band. They have some rock riffs, but they're just sort of goofy to me.

    And also, her new song 'Judas' sounds quite alike (read: too alike) 'bad romance'.. And I've never even listened to 'bad romance', only heard it.. If you catch my drift. Honestly, I think it seems as if most people "respects" her because she's willing to admit her faults.. But that doesn't change the fact about her music.

    The thing is that she might be a great business woman and all of that, but then again I think most haters dislike her because of everything you just said. Music industry is killing music industry. That she's better than other doesn't mean anything, because she still isn't talented in many, including me, peoples eyes.

    Great, lets respect someone who ADMITS that the music she makes sucks balls and only is in for money. I have seen articles where people went SELL OUT on those people. What The Fuck, UG members turned pussy.

    She does Metallica shit too. I'm not a fan of her, but hey. Cool beans.

    Lady Gaga is a man. I know someone who did security detail for "her" and the security guy revealed his intel to his superiors. LOL!!!!
    swedish_chef
    I don't get it. Lady Gaga: 1)admits that she is sellling out 2)makes stupid pop music 3)reinvents herself so the mainstream won't loose interest in her -> Awesome Artist because she can play an Instrument Metallica: 1) Never said they want to sell out 2) apparently alienatet their fan base to make the music they want to make 3) always poor their hearts into their records (at least that's what it looks like to me) -> sell out because they make money. Where is the logic in that?
    lutfish
    ... I don't mean to spam, but did you know she (obviously) took her name from the the Queen song 'Radio Gaga', which in it's turn was supposed to be named 'Radio Kaka', and we all (obviously) know 'kaka' means poop.. Hehehe, Lady Poop...
    lefthandedkid
    :haha: lutfish, that is awesome! Anyway, if she actually does in fact listen to Maiden, I would like her to prove it.

    Why is being a freak a bad thing. Ozzy bit off a bats head and bowie has done weird ziggy stuff. It's all anti establishment, like rock should be
    true_bacon22
    I have no problem beliving she likes those bands, but I don't think they're as central to her musical tastes as she's making them out to be.
