Born this Way Friday

This week I’ve been trying to keep occupied while waiting for Born this Way.  Don’t want to be a total monster right? Just a little one. The hype to Born this Way is building.  The lyrics were released then Gaga said that she was releasing the song two days early.  Originally it was going to be released on the same day as the Grammys. Now we’ll get it in time to sing along, well some people will be able to.  I might be a able to tumble along.  And then there’s her cover art for the album.  She’s got an old glam look from the 70s + monsterness. Alot of people have noted she looks like Ke$ha on the cover, but I’ll say she looks the way Ke$ha wishes she could and tries to look like so whatevs to that.  And everyone seems to think all blonde females look the same. And Little Monsters have been keeping BornThisWayFriday a trending topic  on Twitter all this week.  I’ve never seen this much hype over one song which makes it the most exciting song release of my time and its got to be as good or better than the hype. I’ve never heard a bad Lady Gaga song.  Just ones that wouldn’t necessarily get played on the radio.

In the meantime I’ve been imaging what Born this Way will sound like.  Will it be a dance song? I’m sure it has to be. But when she sang a snippet it was definitely a ballad.   What’s Gaga got in store for us this time? Ellen showed off her imaginings and got James Blunt and Justin Bieber to help her out. Who else has been imagining the song while awaiting Born this Way Friday?

Bigger than Jesus

November 14, 2010 at 7:20 pm (pop culture) (, , , , , , )

In the 60s, the Beatles claimed they were bigger than Jesus. It pissed people off, but no one had any proof if they actually were bigger than Jesus…at least  in the minds of people.  The people at Urlesque decided to see if anyone was actually bigger than Jesus today. And the results weren’t really surprise, well except for the cats.

So whose bigger than Jesus? The singers with the most views on You Tube, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. 

Just don’t replace either one of them with Jesus. It does lead to some funny pics, but otherwise its just scary. 

Gaga as a Saint:

The Last Supper with Gaga as Jesus.

fuckyeahladygaga:  ‘Lady Gaga’s Last Supper.’ (source)  Hahahaha. I like this. There’s Shakira on her right! Hell yeah!  Left of Gaga: Britney SpearsBeyonceMariah CareyJanet JacksonWhitney HoustonMadonnaRight of Gaga:ShakiraKelly ClarksonPinkJessica SimpsonRihanna

I haven’t seen glorifying pics of Bieber yet…but I’m sure they’re out there.

Jesus is definitely not on people’s minds as much as he once was. Its certain that people wouldn’t  be phased today if somesome claimed to be bigger than Jesus.  They would just sigh and accept that as the reason for things being the way they are today (what ever that means to them).

I’ll admit I don’t google Jesus much. I should probably think about him more often, but it isn’t like he is currently making headlines. Maybe sometime after society sped up we slowly stopped caring about things that don’t change.  The Bible stays the same, but our views about it have changed. So we don’t look up Jesus, we look up what people want to change.

I think even if we think about others more often than Jesus, Jesus will remain the constant that we compare everyone to.  Tomorrow we could literally forget all those stars on Urlesque’s list, but we won’t forget Jesus.  We haven’t forgotten in over 2000 years.

I am one of those people who google Gaga all the time (Bad pun?).  With her its different every day.  Just means I’m interested to see what she does. Doesn’t mean I replace Jesus with her though.

What do you think? Bigger than Jesus?
