To me Lady Gaga was nothing special. Heard her music (which I didn't find at all appealing), watched her perform, saw her on t.v with Kermit as her date to the MTV awards and all I could think of was "why on earth is this lady so popular?" But now, months later, I've come to appreciate the world of the Lady. She's successfully created this weird/fun character that's not to be taken seriously. I like that. It's fun. It's Pop. I'm still not a fan, but i can safely say that i can now go to bed not wondering how the 'Gags' became to be so successful.
