Don't worry! I swear I will include actual facts and information!
Also! As a heads up, this post is absolutely and completely biased in my perspective and is meant only for entertainment.
Aside from her ephemeral fashion onslaughts, there are a bunch of reasons why Lady Gaga is quite possibly the most attractive human being, as well as one of the most caring, creative and intelligent people in the pop music buisness. I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not the biggest fan of pop, and anyone around me can confirm that, but for some reason, an unknown reason and a bewildering one, this human being in particular, connects with me through her music. Weird right? I know, trust me, it is, I think about it all the time. So I start thinking, why do I and millions of other Gaga fans that call themselves 'little monsters' (I refuse to call myself a little monster even though I am a HUGE fan) love this woman so? Let me list a couple reasons:
1. Seriously, Talented.
Classically trained in piano, and can also bust out a couple riffs on guitar? Yeah that's pretty cool. It's not like she's Beethoven or anything though, so what else?
2. She's a humanitarian
A serious one too. Remember when Japan was 6 feet under (yup, you have to admit that was a good one), and she started “We Pray For Japan” prayer bracelet available online for $5.00. All the proceeds went to Japan and Haiti after the Tsunami and Earthquake.
She did a lot of work to promote HIV/AID's awarness and health, complete with gaga-esque costume.
2....... some more
Gaga partnered with Virgin Mobile on her Monster Ball national tour offering premium VIP tickets to fans who volunteer their time to homeless youth organizations, which raised more than $80,000 in proceeds to support homeless youth, and generated 30,000 hours of community service for hundreds of charities across the country.
SEE WHAT I MEAN NOW?!
And in case that wasn't enough, here is a list of charities she has also donated time and monetary support to, according to looktothestars.org
Lady Gaga has supported the following charities:
Artists for Peace and Justice
Born This Way Foundation
It Gets Better Project
Lupus Foundation of America
M·A·C AIDS Fund
Stand Up To Cancer
The Trevor Project
3. You have to admit. Homegirl has style.
For real. Before her, how many people did you see dress up like this...ALL THE TIME WHERE EVER THEY WENT!? Never
........and theeeen came Nicki Minaj, Ke-dollar sign-ha, and all the other lame-o's
4. Believe it or not, she's actually pretty smart.
Private school kids have the benefit of being able to have small class rooms and more individual attention. She went to private school. She was smarter than most kids at age 15.
8. She's a musical evil genius
You can't tell, under the fancy pancy synthesizers, and the auto tune, and what ever else in the hell the producers use to make her sound like pop, but she can really, I mean REALLY compose a great piece of music.
9. She's an environmentalist.
Out here in SF, fuck it, that's all you need to say to get on our good side.
10. She's a masterful performer
Go to her show. Balls up and pay the $220 bucks to see her live. Guaranteed you will be glad you spent the money.
11. She is kind of like a Jack-in-the-box
Or a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.
13. She's actually, just NATURALLY pretty
My favorite pictures of Gaga, are when she is stripped of all the make up, the costumes, and the high heels. But then again, I'm the type of person that DGAF about aesthetics.
2. She's a f***ing HUMANITARIAN!
She visited this school and gave some of the most unfortunate kids tickets to go see her VERY EXPENSIVE show.
18. Poker face may have been the single that made her famous but....
Her best music has been the stuff she composed LONG BEFORE the fame. Go find it. It's online.
23. This picture of her abs.
imagine licking peanut butter off them......oh wait, did I say that out loud?!!? =O
Out of all the things that I've mentioned, nothing is more satisfying than hearing her and a piano. Stripped of all the aesthetics, materialism, fame, money, producers; even stripped of all the make up and clothes and jewelry. Just her, and her instrument and the wave lengths she creates. That above all else is worth loving.
Well! Hope you had fun reading this. Love it or hate it, regardless, let me know in the comments.
