The individuals have spoken, and most are in agreement:- lady Gaga’s performance as Jo Calderone did not impress and flopped.
It appears that Gaga herself wasn’t sold on her own performance, if repeated references to woman Gaga ‘not being here’ and reminders that she was, in fact, a person are any indication. the actual fact that she was consistently introduced as woman Gaga and not Jo Calderone in all probability did not facilitate matters.
“Gaga’s shtick wore out its welcome within the 1st 2 minutes. In her effort to be original and run far from the cube hat sporting copycats, like Katy Perry, I believe she may need pushed the audience too so much,” Los Angeles-based tv and music producer Edward Paige told Fox News. “People originally embraced Gaga as a result of in all her quirkiness was authentic in that she did not slot in. however stepping outside the softer vixen role may hurt her. Will MTV or its throngs of very little girls’ fans desire a diva that appears like Ralph Macchio doing a Lenny Bruce routine? I doubt it.”
Jed Smith, the pinnacle of music composition company Beta Fish, was equally underwhelmed.
“Gaga’s persistence as ‘Joe Calderone’ degraded an otherwise enjoyable VMAs, and stood in stark distinction to tasteful and fashionable displays by the likes of Adele,” Smith told Fox News. “Gaga’s performance art philosophy might excuse this, however it remains a poor execution of what, at this time, falls squarely into predictably ‘random’ pattern of behavior.”
Though Gaga consistently tops lists of performers with the foremost Twitter followers -even Gaga devotees were not fans of Jo Calderone:-
@ITweetYouuLOL: “Lady Gaga… As A Man? -________-.. She must be running out of ideas”
@87daysbefore: “lady gaga needs to stop giving me reasons to hate her”
@ScottLowe: “Lady Gaga is one painfully contrived publicity stunt away from being completely irrelevant”
@danielwcarlson: “If you saw a homeless person acting like Lady Gaga, you would call for cops or an ambulance IMMEDIATELY.”
@daveihl: “I really like Lady Gaga’s message to never be yourself”
Some have accused Gaga ‘Jo Calderone’ of lifting Annie Lenox’s gender bending performance at the 1984 Grammy Awards. Back then, the Eurythmics frontwoman wore an outfit and hairstyle eerily almost like Calderone’s throughout a live peformance of “Sweet Dreams” though Lenox did have a lot of pronounced sideburns.
Linking to a YouTube video of Gaga’s VMA performance, Kelly Osbourne tweeted:
I love gaga however I want she would begin giving credit where credit is due.
