A Real Example of Lady Gaga Merchandise

This is a sticker set from the official Lady Gaga merchandise shop.

Are there any non-Monsters left denying that Lady Gaga’s exploitative, marketing-based attitude toward gay people is clear as day? Wake up, people! Christ.

PS — I’m not dead. Just been AWOL.

    I feel sorry for you. You really can’t accept the fact that Gaga has changed our lives because you don’t have anyone to change yours so yeah. I feel sorry for you and your shitty life.

      Asshole Knepper sees sense in his truth 🙂
      The truth of Gaga is insistive, but expressionless.

    Don’t worry, dear. True Little Monsters don’t judge.
    Oral sex loves Gay sex and Anal sex loves Gay sex
    Incestal sex loves everybody else
    But hell is blood and semen perfume
    Mama Monster is really going on a trip now

      But it is the truth 🙂 Gaga is manager of Target and she will prevail in the aspects

    I hate Gaga and her fans(well, most) as much as anyone else, but this isn’t really a fair example. You get T-shirts with ”Proud to be Gay” on and I even saw one once with ”Dicks aren’t just for chicks” printed on the back. How is this exploiting or stereotyping the Gay community any less than the ”I love Lady Gay Gay” shirt?

      Silly baptist 🙂
      Chicks aren’t just meant to suck on dicks is more approximate example 🙂
      Rihanna will teach MD a lesson when Loud comes out. Her ass will be blown away to oldieland 🙂 Will Target ever see sense? 🙂

      Because she is pretending to be more than just a marketing gimmick for gay people. She and her fans herald her as some revolutionary, world-changing artist who changes lives, changes politics, changes minds. I saw a Top TT during the failed ‘Queen Gaga’ attempt to match the record of ‘Femme Fatale’ for longest-lasting music-related TT that said “Gaga is creating a new race of man without prejudice” — I mean, this is what they’re selling her gullible fans. Of course there are all sorts of gay-themed shirts…but they don’t pretend to be anything other than a silly marketing thing. Gaga and her fans think she’s more than just a pop star. She’s not.

      Lol, no, you hate her because you like Rihanna and Rihanna’s sales can’t touch Gaga’s.

    You’re comparing junkfood from McDonald’s(Britney) with junkfood from Burger King(Gaga).

    What’s the difference? Same shit, different name.

    Although I think Lady Gaga is a manafactured joke, I fail to see how your idol is any less manafactured. At least Lady Gaga can sing, play instruments and write her own songs.

    As one great artist once said:”Pop will eat itself and die”. So will you

    Get a fucking life and stop worshipping a whiny basinhead *Cough* Justin Bieber *Cough cough*
    I may not like Lady Gaga but I don’t create some blog with the sole purpose of hating her.

      Because Britney never pretends to be anything she’s not. Furthermore, my main complaint is not that Lady Gaga is “manufactured,” although she definitely is, but that she swears, swears, swears, that “Lady Gaga and Stefani Germanotta are one in the same.” They are not, and we have proof of this.

      No, you’ve got it wrong, if your going to make that analogy.
      Britney may be ‘junkfood’ from mcdonalds, but that means Gaga is a sandwhich from Burger King that they are marketing as a gourmet angus burger, but really, it’s just another shitty mass-produced burger. Britney may be another pop star out of this ‘system’ but at least she doesn’t act like some world-changing god.
      and whether or not he likes Britney over gaga, his points are still, valid so that was a petty attempt to try and undermine them. Nor have I witnessed in any case him ‘worshipping’ Bieber, who is also not some pretentious, “i’m going to change the world” pop-star like gaga.

      and the fact that you think this is a hate blog shows that you just ran in here as an angry stan(even though you say your not) and angrily hit your keyboard. maybe you should read the essay he wrote, and you would see clear as day this isn’t some ‘hate blog’ but actually arguments analyzing the other side of lady gaga. The oh-so-obvious pretentious side that we are sick of hearing about in the mass media, thank god a free blogger took it upon them to address it so well.

    Looks like someone didn’t do their research. A fan created the “Lady Gay Gay” design and Lady Gaga’s team, not Gaga herself, chose it and decided to sell it. Her merch is created and sold by her label, not her.

    What she does for the community, such as fighting for gay rights, overpowers and contradicts her so-called “exploitative” schemes.

      You think her team isn’t in on the marketing gimmick? What is your point?

        Her team IS the marketing gimmick. There would be no Hades Caca without the team. This person has absolutely no creative power and has surrounded herself with a team of people that does. No team? No Caca.

    I use to cry every night.

    I just wanted to be normal like everyone else. Just because I’m not thin enough or pretty enough or clever enough, because I’m not PERFECT, people made fun of me in both RL and online, they used to make my life a living hell every day. I tried to kill myself 2 times. But I’m done with that.

    Lady Gaga changed my life and gave me a strength to carry. You can ridicule and laugh at me all you want, I don’t care what you say. I will forever love and thank Gaga with all my heart for making me love myself more. Now I know I’m not a freak. I was born this way, no matter what. Thank you, Gaga.

      Awwwww ❤ I'm not a big Gaga fan, but she is a really great and emotional performer.
      This performance always makes me cry. Sounds lame, but it just does.

      She's amazing. I just can't believe how far she's come just through using her knack for what people want. I don't think she exploits her fans or the Gay community. ''Little Monsters'' is just an affectionate term to her.

    You are dumb, Google Gaga and see what she has done for over 2 years.

    Britney Spears has had a 12 year career, has gotten 9 Grammy nominations, and won…1.

    Gaga has had only over 2 years in the music world, but Gaga has gotten 12 Grammy nominations, and won 5.

    Now you tell me who is ignorant and delusional. And don’t tell me Grammys don’t matter, because they do. You are not only ignorant but hypocritical.

      really? personally I think the grammys are shit. half the time it’s about people who are commerically successful, not ciritically, and hell, here’s a couple quotes some from people, since I am sure you don’t give a shit what I say because I’m not a lady gaga fan:

      Lead singer fomr Tool: “I think the Grammys are nothing more than some gigantic promotional machine for the music industry. They cater to a low intellect and they feed the masses. They don’t honor the arts or the artist for what he created. It’s the music business celebrating itself. That’s basically what it’s all about.”
      Eddie Vedder, from Pearl Jam, his acceptance to award: “I don’t know what this means. I don’t think it means anything”

      you wanna know who the nominations where for record of the year this year? “Nothin’ on you” by B.O.B, Love the way you lie by Eminem/Rhianna, Fuck you! By Cee Lo Green, and Empire State of the Mind By Jay-Z/Alicia Keys. The winner was “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum, the most obvious choice. Lets jump back 20 years, 1981, Christopher Cross won with his song ‘sailing’, nominees included Kenny Rogers, Frank Sinatra, and Barabara Streisand. do I even need to compare?

    She is a brilliant person. I don’t give a damn if she’s ”ugly” or exploitive. Her brain is rightfully better than her beauty and she’s a damn sight better than some of the people on Exhale who constantly try to bring her down out of pure jealousy. If she continues to be successful or not, she will always be a respected artist.

      what a contradictory opinon…first you say you don’t care if she’s exploitive, then you say her brain is rightfully better than her beauty? ‘exploitive’ it’s no a quality I’d want, personally.

    If it were not for GodGa we all would burn in the depths of Hell. We Little Monsters are merely undeserving sinners saved by GodGa’s grace.

      Let us pray together, Jess. -Bows head and stands in prayer circle-

      GodGa, We humbly request that you forgive these unrepenting sinners. They do not yet know of your saving grace and cannot see the light. In the name of The Fame, Amen.

        Sorry, I think you prayed wrong…

        It’s Godney, the Holy Spearit, that you should pray to.

        Pray, little critters, pray!
