Once upon a time there was “Sex, drugs and Rock’n’Roll”, right now it’s more like “Sex, drugs and Artpop”!
Maybe Lady Gaga forgot what made miss Germanotta “the real thing” in pop: the connection with “the real people”, the fact that in her songs everyone could see him/herself and in ArtPop you cannot find yourself looking at the mirror, listening to her album.
I miss Born This Way, personally.
And maybe (maybe!) 25 million dollars to promote Artpop are a little bit too much… even for Lady Gaga, right now.
Above all… Lady Gaga is always Lady Gaga, without any doubt.
