I just read the EG piece on GaGa properly, and eh, she is irritating. I feel like she doesn’t quite understand the concepts she’s playing with, but you can never pin her down on it because, according to the logic she claims to be using, so what if she understands it or not — whatever *it* is becomes meaningful once we start viewing it as meaningful, etc. Key points:  

  1. ‘All music is inspired by sex. It’s the primal rush and instinct and the insatiable need for orgasm and procreation. Isn’t that why we’re all here? Love and sex are the only reason to make art.’
  2. ‘I want to transform the ideas into something simple that everybody can understand. I don’t want to shock to the point of confusion or molest the audience. I want them to feel free and that they are a part of my exhibition, not at its mercy.’
