Ever since Lady Gaga hit the national scene a few years ago, she's been trying to invent herself. First copying punk and glam rock stars such as Iggy Pop and David Bowie and then megastars Cher and Madonna, she's never really been able to come into her own as a star.
Maddened by the fact that she is constantly being compared to someone who is already famous, Lady Gaga has finally thrown in the towel and admitted that she's just stealing Madonna's act outright.
"It takes way too much of my energy," said Gaga backstage at a recent performance, "to try and create myself as something unique. I just can't seem to come up with something that no one has tried before. You can only get so far wearing funeral regalia and those stupid heel-less shoes before people start calling you a no-talent hack. In this business, you need something that will really pop, and so far, I'm at a loss."
Gaga went on to say that she finally decided that she could either rack her brain trying to be something different, or just hitch a ride on the coattails of someone she could easily copy and that's when she decided to just steal Madonna's act.
She admitted that the artist she really wanted to emulate was Kiss but that would mean that she would have to take on four different personalities and the costume changes for each set alone would be hell in her opinion. "I could've really gotten into just being Gene Simmons, my favorite Kiss performer, but it wouldn't have the same impact as it does with four grown men in full kabuki makeup," said Gaga, "so I decided to go with Madonna."
"Besides," she continued, "I don't think the world has gotten enough of Madonna yet, and with her getting up there in age, it's just a matter of time before she can't do her act anymore and that's when I'll really start making the big bucks. I mean, come on folks, do you really wanna see an aging Madonna doing explicit sex scenes for much longer?"
