My Response to Arrogant Bastard DJ White Shadow

CONFIRMED: DJ White Shadow has read this blog post. I tweeted it to him and he replied saying that he read it and that “it’s great to have an opinion.” Diplomatic PR statement, or cowardly refusal to engage? You decide, reader… (Since I know that he reads his tweets, though, I told him that it speaks poorly of him and everyone on Gaga’s team that none of them had the guts to tell her that the song sounds like “Express Yourself.” Will he reply? Time will tell…)

Remember when the NME interview dropped and I speculated that, since Gaga revealed that no one around her had the courage to tell her that her “anthem of her generation” was blatantly plagiarized from Madonna’s “Express Yourself,” it is quite probable that Gaga surrounds herself entirely with sycophants?

Today, we have proof. Check out this quote from one of Gaga’s new producers, DJ White Shadow:

How many people have been copying Gaga since she came out? Oh, I have that answer: everyone. Have you seen all the lightning bolts painted on faces, or the one hand eye cover ups during photos, or the exact same promo posters being put up as Gaga’s, or the new popularity of unicorns, or the copycat fake “Oh I’m so cool with the gay community” rhetoric? Or how about the fact that there was barely any dance music on the radio until “Just Dance” came out? Come on motherfuckers, let’s keep it real here. If we are going to talk about who is chasing who, I think we all know the answer to that. So yeah, she did something new, and people had to reach back 20+ years to find a song that could have possibly sounded like it, and that made news? Come on. And I get to watch people try and fuck Gaga all the time and steal her shit, but guess what? While you were out trying to make the music she made off The Fame, thinking she was making The Fame v2.0, she went and made some next shit for you to chase for the next 3 years. So, suck on that.

Wow. Let’s take this cocky cunt’s bullshit line-by-line:

How many people have been copying Gaga since she came out? Oh, I have that answer: everyone.

A few have. Natalia Kills is a particularly glaring example, for instance. Besides her, I can’t really think of anyone “copying” Gaga.

Have you seen all the lightning bolts painted on faces,

No?

or the one hand eye cover ups during photos,

Two answers to this: (1) Apparently nobody covered one eye with one of their hands before Gaga did it in a split-second frame in the “Just Dance” video, (2) No?

or the exact same promo posters being put up as Gaga’s,

No?

or the new popularity of unicorns,

The fuck?

or the copycat fake “Oh I’m so cool with the gay community” rhetoric?

There’s a pro-gay zeitgeist, but Gaga is almost entirely a symptom, not a cause, of that.

Or how about the fact that there was barely any dance music on the radio until “Just Dance” came out?

Absolutely everything on The Fame has a precursor in three trailblazing albums: Loose, FutureSex/LoveSounds, and Blackout, whose sounds were crafted largely by the likes of Timbaland, Danja, and Bloodshy & Avant.

Come on motherfuckers, let’s keep it real here.

Indeed.

If we are going to talk about who is chasing who, I think we all know the answer to that.

Correct: Gaga is chasing Madonna.

So yeah, she did something new,

She didn’t.

and people had to reach back 20+ years to find a song that could have possibly sounded like it, and that made news?

It’s a rather famous song. The chorus to “Born This Way” was written in the same key and was, note-for-note, the same melody as the bridge to “Express Yourself.” The title of the Madonna song was trending on Twitter higher than the name of the Gaga song on the day of the song’s release. Let’s get real, here.

Come on.

Seriously.

And I get to watch people try and fuck Gaga all the time and steal her shit, but guess what? While you were out trying to make the music she made off The Fame, thinking she was making The Fame v2.0, she went and made some next shit for you to chase for the next 3 years. So, suck on that.

If he’s referring to “Born This Way,” then we’re about to hear an explosion of songs that sound like 90’s club remixes. If he’s referring to “Judas,” then he’s full of shit, since that song is most definitely The Fame v2.0. Perhaps there are fully innovative songs on the upcoming album, but from the previews we’ve been given, I seriously doubt it.

But there’s big news lurking underneath this: This man is representative of the type of people that Gaga surrounds herself with. That’s a rather unsettling thought!

    Hey Alex,

    Remember when you thought you were going to have a career as an opinionated columnist because you were a young rising star in the rightwing blogosphere?

    Then remember when you alienated any mainstream audience forever by blaming rape victims for being raped? Then remember when you alienated any conservative audience (who already hated you enough for your sexuality) by having your sexual attraction to underage teens discovered? Then remember how you went from blogging for David Frum to trying to start some bullshit site no one read and are now reduced to posting on yet another bullshit site no one reads? Basically, remember when you ruined your career by being an insufferable douche? That was awesome.

    It’s all the more awesome because you’re $100,000 in debt and with your only potentially valuable “skill” now useless as a result of your own doing, how you made yourself a pariah and with the memory of the Internet forever ruined your career, you have no chance of paying that back within the next 10-15 years while it keeps accruing interest. So young, your fate is already sealed and it’s entirely a result of your actions. Now you’ll have to struggle just to make end’s meet just like all the leeches you and your hero Ayn have so much contempt for. Poetic justice doesn’t get much sweeter.

    Enjoy your lifetime of misery, you’ve earned it.

      (1) You mockingly ask me to delete you by implying that I oppose ‘transparency’ if I do so, and yet you don’t even have the courage to reveal your own name; hence, you’re a coward and a hypocrite,

      (2) I received an outpouring of support from all over the country for my opinions about ‘date rape’; it’s only on college campuses and left-wing blogs that it’s a controversial idea that going to a party alone, getting wasted, and going to a guy’s room is an indication that a person is interested in sex,

      (3) I’m already writing again on a conservative blog that receives hundreds of thousands of hits on a monthly basis, so it’s a demonstrable falsehood to say that any conservative audience was alienated. I continue to be good friends with several conservative writers. Furthermore, half of the writers for the site that “exposed” me resigned due to the editor’s treatment of me, and the site lost half of its traffic thanks to its deranged obsession with me and certain other writers that they hate — although let’s just say that, given my obsessive Facebook postings about Justin Bieber, it’s something of a stretch to say that they “discovered” anything, as if I were hiding it —

      (4) I have certain projects in the works that will (hopefully) enable me to pay off the debt sooner than anticipated, although, yes, it was a horrific mistake,

      (5) This site is just a side project; I’m not trying to gain any notoriety with this,

      (6) I’m still going to have a career as an opinionated writer,

      (7) There’s no apostrophe in the word “ends.”

        My name is Scott A. Bass, I’m the Provost. Thanks for all your monies, I’m laughing my way to the bank.

        “Indication” ≠ “Consent” apologist. I’m sure lots of bros supported you, but no, the idea that girls who are date raped deserved it is pretty unpopular and controversial (though a favorite tactic of unscrupulous lawyers).

        Hundreds of thousands of hit a month? Lol. That’s not a popular site. Oh, and Justin Bieber has nothing to do with what I referenced. AFAIK, you don’t post about “Children I’d Like To Fuck” (apparently they’re called “CHILFS” in the pedophile community) or how you had sex with a 16-year-old on your facebook posts.

        I’m sure you hope they will. They won’t.

        I’m sure you’ll continue to write your intentionally contrarian and usually ill-informed essays, but you won’t be able to make a career out of it now.

        Oh noes! I made something possessive that isn’t possessive! You’ve bested me now!

          1) Hilarious. You’re probably ‘Emanuelle Jensen’ again, the same coward who made a fake Facebook account to stalk me and leave nasty anonymous comments there, too. And you call me creepy? Yikes,

          2) Not rehashing what I already explained in two dozen television, radio, and print interviews last year; go listen to me on NPR or something; I’m not engaging someone too cowardly to reveal their name,

          3) While it’s not “popular” in the same sense as, say, Daily Caller was, it’s a step back up. You don’t know who I’m talking to about new positions. Come back to me at the end of the year. I know how to make things happen,

          4) They probably will; I’d give it a sixty to seventy percent chance. See, the difference is: you don’t know what I’m referring to and I do…hehe.

          5) Well, sure I’ll be able to make a career out of it, in the long-run. I have a decent job lined up in the short-term, but you don’t know who I know and what they can (and want to) help me with. Again — come back to me at the end of the year and you’ll be frustrated and pressed as you see me gaining prominence again,

          6) Well, I don’t talk about the twenty-somethings I’ve had sex with on my Facebook, either, but I certainly have nothing to hide. 16 is the age of consent in my state. Yeah, I’ve had sex with teenagers. And I’d do it again, too, buddy!,

          7) You’re sexy.

    By the way DJ White Shadow, just so you know, you really don’t need to engage with this kid. You probably weren’t going to anyway seeing as how you’re a successful musician and he’s some bitter kid with a blog, but just to assure you:

    He’s a staunch defender of date rape and he just loooooves to fuck 16-year-olds.

    When someone is that thoroughly disgusting and discredited, I wouldn’t worry about their opinion of your music. He’s impossible to take seriously.

      Justin Bieber is 17 now; it’s now more accurate to say that I looooove to fuck 17-year-olds. My one love, my one heart, my one life for sure, I’mma tell him one time, I’mma tell him one time…

    hahah wow oy mh GOD…I can’t believe this guy is real. he needs to get a handle on himself. first off, lightnging bolt across face is an extremeley iconic Bowie image, so wtf he is going with that I don’t know, second, the lightning bolt as well as the ‘one eye’ are all VERY COMMOn symbols that have been around for hundreds of years. (considering gaga combines the ‘one eye’ OFTEN with the also well-know ‘666’ hand symbol, i’m asuming shes is going for the ‘all-seeing eye’, pretending like she is some kind of martyr hero who is giving into the judas’ of the music industry to act like she cares, when actually to say she care about anything more than the fame is ludicrous)

    and two of them that you also hit on the head that stand out to me: this whole gaga acting like no-one did anything for gay community before her. bullshit, i’ve never seen anyone exploit them for their own gain MORE than her though, she can take that crown. absolutley ridiculous.

    second, i can’t believe he actually said there wasn’t dance music before just dance. i mean, you don’t even need to argue this one? and hes a fucking DJ???

    btw, this “everyone copies lady gaga and lady gaga copies no-one” thing is the most god-awful thing i’ve seen all her fans say. I am a big Roisin Murphy/moloko fan and lady gaga has copied huge amouns of her clothing, videos, her ‘weirdness’. cept roisin is actually ‘weird’ in a sense, not that she calls herself a freak or anything (like gaga) but that her stuff is genuinley different, it sounds innovative and fresh, not 90’s dance beat remixes that gaga is trying to look cool for.

One of them in particular — I honestly do not know who it is (although the IP says that it’s from New York, these people are so freakish that whoever it is is probably using a proxy) — has been leaving nasty comments on all of my blogs for about six months now. Freeeeeaks.

    Ugh.
    I don’t expect you or anyone else on this blog to read this, but I’m getting so many stupid ass, motherfucking hate messages from Gaga haters lately that I just can’t deal with it anymore. Most of you blindly hate on the bitch because you know nothing about her and/or because it’s so cool to hate on something that is incredibly popular. Ohhh, Gaga is too ugly for my sexy hip ass, so I have to hate on her. No, you’re dumb. The woman does nothing but walk down the street in crazy outfits and spread messages of love and acceptance. If that bothers you THAT much to the point where you hate her, then you have a problem. Unlike most of the popstars today, Gaga writes all of her own lyrics, composes all of her own music, co-produces most of her own songs, creatively directs every aspect of her career, says what she wants, wears what she wants, sings about what she wants, speaks up against things that she doesn’t believe in, and is actually an amazing singer and performer. Apparently all of that’s a bad thing though, because you all want untalented slutty twats who do nothing but use gallons of auto tune and shake their asses around on stage. If you don’t like Gaga, that’s fine, but have an actual reason to dislike her and disliking her because you dislike her “arrogance”, “ugliness”, “trannyness”, etc, is not a valid reason. Every single person on this planet is arrogant. I am arrogant, you are arrogant, yes, Gaga is arrogant. It’s human nature to be arrogant. Most Gaga fans will tell you she’s not 100% original or non-gimmicky and even Gaga will tell you that (see the Larry King interview). Some of you dumbasses are under the impression that Gaga thrives on being a pseudo, “edgy” and “original” Artist and tries to make people think that. No, not at all. Gaga has absolutely no problem with crediting and telling you where she gets her ideas and who inspires her. At any given time, you can ask her who made what she’s wearing and she will tell you their name along with the story behind the outfit. She is incredibly aware of her surroundings and doesn’t wear something unless she knows where it came from and what it’s about. It seems like some of you haters would actually love her because she’s a giant-ass troll. She does what she wants and says “fuck you” to the people who don’t like her. That’s a good thing, imo.

    Yes, I am aware there are tons of crazy Gaga fans, but Gaga is not the only person who has batshit retarded fans. Britney, Madonna, Katy, Ke$ha, Rihanna, Justin, Miley, etc. all have a group of fans who act as if they’re God and do everything they say, so let’s not pretend Gaga is the only one.
    In conclusion, thank you to the people who understand what Gaga is doing and .F.U.C.K.Y.O.U. to the people who are too stupid and wrapped up in their own bullshit to get it. Next time you try to hate on someone, do a little bit of research so you don’t look like a shithead.

    • Posted May 6, 2011 at 7:15 pm | Permalink | Reply

      Hey, I have an idea: how about you reply to the points I make, rather than the points that you wish I’d make?

      Also, no: she doesn’t write “all” of her own music. Like Ke$ha and Katy Perry, she co-writes all of her own music. Ke$ha does everything Gaga does but never gets any fucking credit because unlike Gaga, Ke$ha doesn’t feel like she has something to prove to anyone. She’s just having a good time doing what she loves.

      “Every single person on this planet is arrogant. I am arrogant, you are arrogant, yes, Gaga is arrogant. It’s human nature to be arrogant.”

      There are degrees.

      “Most Gaga fans will tell you she’s not 100% original or non-gimmicky and even Gaga will tell you that (see the Larry King interview). Some of you dumbasses are under the impression that Gaga thrives on being a pseudo, “edgy” and “original” Artist and tries to make people think that. No, not at all. Gaga has absolutely no problem with crediting and telling you where she gets her ideas and who inspires her.”

      Bullshit. Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit! She has refused, to this day, to acknowledge that Born This Way sounds like Express Yourself; in fact, she cried when an interviewer told her that it did. She gave a shout-out to Whitney Houston at the Grammys for inspiring her to write it — Whitney! A notorious Madonna rival from the 90s! — I mean, what the fuck! — And has she, to this day, credited Roisin Murphy for all of the outfits she ripped off from her? Ace of Base for inspiring Alejandro? I mean, come on!

      And yes, she gets off on looking ‘edgy’ — listen to her talk about Judas — the song or the video. It’s fucking ridiculous. She honestly thinks she’s extremely artistic and avant-garde and pushing boundaries, when everything she’s done has been done before. It doesn’t mean it’s not worth doing again, but not if you’re gonna act like a trailblazer. Listen to DJ White Shadow talking about her, for instance — that’s how she thinks! That’s the bullshit she’s fed! She thinks she’s revolutionized the game! — This is so farcical!

    I am just fucking disappointed to learn that a seemingly intelligent anti-gaga ally thinks it’s a woman’s fault if she’s raped.

    1. You are a man, you will NEVER understand the feeling of violation that all women inherently know of and fear, you have no right to have an opinion.

    2. no woman EVER EVER deserves to be raped, no matter what.

    3. a man should NEVER sleep with a drunk woman because she is incapable of giving informed consent and will be highly likely to regret it.

    ps – seeing as you don’t understand “consent” what “informed consent” means is whether a person is psychological capable of understanding what they are doing.

    It’s the reason why it counts as statutory rape to have sex with someone age 12 or under (in the UK) because, like a drunk woman, they may be aroused and want to have sex, they may be able to say, “yes, you can fuck me” but they don’t understand the consequences and deeper meaning of their actions.

        I agree with you Alex and I’m a woman. It’s a taboo subject but it should be common sense. Saying that a man is more responsible for sex is insulting to women and some people just don’t get that. If you didn’t want to have sex with a guy then you shouldn’t have had sex with him. Stop blaming men for your lack of judgement and feeling sorry for yourself because you messed up.
