Lady Gaga Weighs In On Potential Olympic Boycott Of Russia

Mother Monster spoke out on whether or not the United States should boycott the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. 

She tells The Sun:

I don’t think we should be going to Russia for the winter Olympics, that's my personal opinion. I care so much about these issues and I don’t think we should be bringing any commerce to a country which enforces such a lack of equality and a lack of human rights. A country where so much abuse of youth is happening, how can we bring so much attention to that part of the world and reward them for that? For me it’s shocking, then again everyone thinks Miley Cyrus is shocking and that's the world we live in…”

Do you agree with her stance??

Hey Deluded Gag gag,  you admit Gaga can sign and write catchy music, but then go on a rant that she as a performer does more for her performance?  If you don't like her performances then don't watch them.  She is just giving her opinion because she was asked.  Get over yourself already.

s/sign/sing/....

She just wants to sell records and increase her fan base !!!

So she's a pig, and she's made her fans pigs - is there something there I'm missing, beyond the obvious? She's made a career out of recycling others (like Lennox and Madonna - which is even sadder, considering that Madonna also recycled the ideas of others) and just being shocking for the sake of shocking - really, it's not far removed from the tactics of people like Courtney Stodden. Sure, Gaga can sing, and she can write a catchy chart tune, but I'm a lot more impressed by the artists who don't have to hide behind costumes - Whitney could just walk out and sing. Adele can just sing, Winehouse really didn't need the beehive and the makeup. And for anyone who saw Shirley Bassey's performance at the Oscars - that's a performer who owns the stage she's on. I guess I'm just more into music than theatricality, if I'm not at a musical. Sure, people can wear pig noses and listen to whatever they like, but it is pop after all, so let's not pretend it's deeper than it really is. Her poor justification of the meat dress pretty much summed up for me the lack of depth of thought. I wouldn't put her name in the same sentence as Warhol, who also did what he did 50 years ago. She wishes she were Warhol.
