Sounds Good Comments (6)

Via The Homosexual Agenda: Time's list of the 100 greatest songs, like, EVER is pretty fucking great. Interesting choice to go with Madonna's "Borderline" of all her indelible hits. Lady Gaga is repped by "Bad Romance." It's not as poppy a list as the two I singled out, though.

The Power/Good-Bye Comments (3)

Time's list of The 25 Most Powerful Women of the Past Century includes only two singers—and no other performers save for Oprah Winfrey: Aretha Franklin and Madonna. (Would Madonna like to be on any list that includes the word "past" in its title?)

I'm not sure I can sign off on a list that ignores Marilyn Monroe, but I guess if she had the kind of "power" Time's discussing, she'd still be alive.

Madonna is the youngest person on the list and one of only nine still living.

Stubborn Starlet Comments (4)

Justin Timberlake says of Madonna:

"She's the most stubborn woman in the world. As a woman, she's the highest in stubbornness. But she's very smart and incredibly cerebral. And I think that's why she's been able to change her style and image so much. Her music pays attention to what people are thinking." 

Interesting quote, though it almost reminds me of that fake "tip-top starlet" satirical interview by Garry Trudeau that eventually became wrongly attributed to Madonna thanks to his odd "she's the highest in stubbornness." Teen idols never went to school, so any who are as bright as Timberlake otherwise seems to be probably have genius-level IQs.

The new issue of Time Out New York (September 16—22, 2010) is all about keeping fit using the city as your gym:

All well and good, but I was momentarily shocked when I turned one page and saw this:

GaGa Invented Originality Comments (10)

Untitled0 Just to rile the anti-GaGas, note that Time's "The 100 Most Influential People in the World" issue not only features GaGa (and on the cover), it doesn't include Madonna, arguably GaGa's biggest influence. But it includes...Prince??? Isn't he at the Gloria Swanson phase?

The piece is by Cyndi Lauper, who's much more magnanimous in her appraisal of Lady GaGa than many might expect:

"GaGa's lyrics are incredibly literary...Most of the stuff on the radio is not very clever, but GaGa presents her ideas in a sophisticated manner. She has an incredible pop sensibility. People forget how young she is. She is barely 24—much younger than I was when I became famous...She only has two albums out, but already she is inspiring other artists to go further in their own work. When I see somebody like GaGa, I sit back in admiration. I'm inspired to pick up the torch again myself. I did an interview with her once, and she showed up with a sculpture on her head. I thought, How awesome. Being around her, I felt like the dust was shaken off of me."

It's this universal dust-shaking that is GaGa's main influence, more so than hairbows and sparkler tits. I know lots of my peers are on the anti-GaGa bandwagon (because lots more are on the pro-GaGa bandwagon), but I resist bandwagons and anti-bandwagons and prefer to just like what I like.

Oh, and just purely for fun, I thought of this:

Bowing To The King Comments (1)

Photo I almost did a Michael Jackson tribute magazine (I know, but I'm a pro, you'd never have known I was at best ambivalent behind the keyboard!) having done them on Princess Diana and JFK Jr. in the past, so I'm quite interested in those that do come out. Newsweek (July 13, 2009) has him on its cover, but it's not a full issue. Interesting quote of the day:

"True, for a while he was the King of Pop—a term apparently originated by his friend Elizabeth Taylor—and he's the last we're ever likely to have. Before Michael Jackson came Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and the Beatles; after him has come absolutely no one, however brilliant or however popular, who couldn't be ignored by vast segments of an ever-more-fragmented audience. Not Kurt Cobain, not Puffy, not Mariah Carey, not Céline Dion, not Beyoncé, not Radiohead—not even Madonna, his closest competitor."—David Gates (with Raina Kelley)
