All of the above. She likes the idea, she's angry at them from taking even a little attention away from her, and her dressing as an adult baby seems like the logical end game. Adult babies seem like something right in Lady Gaga's wheelhouse. With her insatiable craving for attention, is she that much different from the adult baby fetish community? She wore a meat dress. They wear diapers. Thin line.
In case you don't know, Lady Gaga is an adult singer who puts on weird get-ups like a four year-old who is asked to dress him/herself and they end up coming out wearing a tutu, Superman cape, no underwear, a pirate hat, and flippers.
Adult babies are dudes who dress and act like babies to satisfy whatever impulse drives a person to cry and poop themselves.
So what if she dresses up like a weirdo? She's not the first pop star to try and achieve popularity using something other than talent, and she's not the most egregious. She's less gross than Kiss simply from a "not constantly trying to take your money through vile over-branding" standpoint. If she dressed up as an adult baby, it would still be less egregious than selling a coffin with her face on it (yep, Kiss does sell a coffin). People forget that David Bowie was the master of gimmicks. You may not like her music, that's subjective, but she's trotting on well-worn territory. Other gimmick musicians: Elton John, Devo, Flaming Lips, the Misfits, Madonna, Jerry Lee Lewis (what, you thought he was dating his cousin for real?), ACDC, Seal (awwww I'm mad at myself for making an implied Seal's messed up face joke), and on and on and on. Don't be an adult baby and complain about Lady Gaga.
|Yeah, sure that's not a diaper on there.|
|See, I can get in on the action too. BEAT YA GAGA!|
|You didn't think you were getting out of this post without the most |
disgusting picture of an adult baby I could find, did you? Image source
In summation, if you pay me well, I will be the "mama, dada" and change your diapers, adult babies, with an open offer to do the same with Lady Gaga when she inevitably goes that route.
[Editor's note: I believe I deserve some credit for going the entire length of this post without pointing out the obvious "googoo Lady gaga". You're welc...Awww crap.]
