Lady Gaga: genius or copy-paste expert?


When I first watched Alejandro, the new video of Lady Gaga, it seemed a little boring to me. I thought that I might have been wrong but with a second glance the clip was just a deja vu! Her style reminds me so much of Madonna. The androgynous look, the suit, the dance, the male ballet, the crosses are all ‘’ inspired ‘’ by Madonna. Her videos for Vogue, Erotica and Express Yourself are recycled in Alejandro. The most convincing evidence is the gun bra, which is designed by Samuel Menkes and is a parallax of Madonna’s outstanding bras. Moreover, Gaga recycles her own videos, while she is trying to make something creative and fresh. She makes a provocative use of religion and her sexuality, but in fact, these methods were used decades ago and with more conviction! But it’s not only Lady Gaga who makes extravagant use of the past. The music, the clothes, the shoes, the hair styles and even the majority of the new trends are old! So we cannot blame her, as she follows the tendency of our times and the masses seem to like it.. G
