Lady Gaga is in no way a marketing genius.

She is a tool used by the corporate music industry to bring funds into their pockets. I'm not saying she is not talented. I'm saying "She" did not create the huge image that she portays, it was created by someone sitting in an office.

If you tell the American public that they need something long enough, they will buy it and buy it with their last penny. It's not marketing, it's more like peer pressure.

And by the way I thought the meat dress thing was kinda cool.


Lady Gaga definitely knows how to market herself and gain attention. She seems to gain more popularity as time passes. I don't particularly like her, but I admit that she's talented. The songs she sings are very catchy, and I can't help but get the tune stuck in my head when I hear one. This post gives another perspective on how to look at the artist and her marketing techniques. It's insightful and well written.

Pop songs generally conspicuous by a heavy rhythmic element, a mainstream style and traditional structure. The most common modification strophic in form and focuses on memorable melodies, catchy hooks and appeal of the verse-chorus-verse arrangement, with the chorus sharply contrasting verse melodically, rhythmically and harmonically.


I have to say I haven't ever really bought in to all the Lady Gaga hype, but Of Mice and Men covered her song Poker Face and I have to say I did dig it. This blog was incredibly informative because I realistically had no idea exactly how big Lady Gaga had gotten. The fact that she has already had six No. 1 songs is astonishing, most musicians never even have one.

Nice article Beth! I should have known the article was about Lady Gaga lol. I really don't like much modern pop music but Gaga is pretty much awesome.
