Lady Gaga, once again, makes us all ponder the truly unanswerable questions: Which came first, the Gaga, or the egg?
Or I could take it another direction and officially say that she needs to attach some fallopian tubes and a uterus to her outfit to make it a complete ensemble.
Let me preface this post by stating that I do not play Farmville, nor will I ever play Farmville. I find people’s addiction to it fascinating – Farmville is like cyber crack. Correction: it’s not really fascinating, just sad.
So I was completely surprised when I read the following headline:
Lady Gaga and FarmVille team up for ‘GagaVille
Yes, that’s right. Lady Gaga – the current “trendsetter” who preaches about being you, being born this way, being in love with Judas, and how she’s half motorcycle-half human – is selling out to FARMVILLE, for christ’s sake. WHAT A SAD DAY FOR THE LITTLE MONSTERS…sad like a day without Farmville crops, if you will.
According to the article, “players will now get to interact with a Lady Gaga-inspired farm full of unicorns, crystals, and…leather clad-sheep. “Lady Gaga is as passionate about her fans as we are about our players,” said Zynga’s Raquel DiSabatino, director of entertainment and media. “This really was a great meeting of the minds to create an innovative and playful experience for those folks.”
Now, let me make it clear: I do not like Lady Gaga and yet this reeks of desperation to me. Even as a non-fan, I am offended that this wannabe “groundbreaking” artist is selling herself out to something as inane and idiotic as Farmville. Pretty soon she’ll turn into a waste of space like Katy Perry. Whatever happened to just putting out good music without the gimmicks and marketing? Oh, that’s right, the music industry sold its soul to the devil long ago…
You've always sucked, but now you suck just a little bit more.
