just dance

courtneymusic, some girls are (your mom)

So I got my second editorial letter for Some Girls Are last week and I’m on a considerably tighter deadline than before. And now you know what killed my return to regular blogging! I am on such a tight deadline, you guys, I technically don’t even have time to write this entry to tell you that but since I spent like, 30 minutes last night watching REAL TRUE GHOSTS CAUGHT ON CAMERA on YouTube, I thought, you know what?

I will MAKE the time.

Except now I don’t know what to write.

I have burned up like a comet upon entering the atmosphere.

So maybe I will just talk about Lady GaGa.

I feel pretty confident that I’m the last person in the world to discover Lady GaGa. Haters to the left, I love this chick and foresee us being BFFs the moment she knows I exist. She’s ridiculous! And she doesn’t care! Me too, Lady GaGa! Me too! I haven’t reached the point where I will be traipsing around Paris in a nude bodysuit, but you know. One day.


Anyway, here is the reason I love Lady GaGa: her songs, Beautiful, Dirty, Rich and Just Dance totally remind me of The Great Gatsby, which is the only book about Beautiful, Dirty, Rich people who Just Dance that I can stand. I bought her album thinking the whole thing would be like this sonic cynical take on lifestyles of the rich and shameless from someone who is shamelessly rich, but mostly it’s about Buying In, which is mildly disappointing but IT’S STILL REALLY CATCHY SO THAT’S OKAY.

Also did you know GaGa penned Quicksand, which is the best B-side on Lady BritBrit’s latest, Circus? If you don’t love her for that I don’t know what to tell you. You’re a weirdo. Here is the music video for Beautiful, Dirty, Rich. I was going to put a disclaimer about how she’s writhing around on money in little clothing, but there’s lots of swearing in Cracked Up to Be and nobody disclaimered that, so I think I will just let you discover it all for yourselves and then watch you be appropriately shocked about what they’re putting on the MTV these days.

Hee hee hee! Oh, you should’ve seen the shocked look on your face! It was great!

Now I shall post an amusing image.
