Uncle Luke loves Lady Gaga

Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness once made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Luke expounds on the greatness of Lady Gaga.

In this age of digital media, when you can download any new album or movie for free on the Internet, it is damn impressive that Lady Gaga sold more than a million copies of her most recent release, Born This Way, the week after it came out. She is a beast who will be around for many years. Lady Gaga is not just an artist. She is a movement.

Teenage girls love her. Gay people love her. You can play a Lady Gaga track at an all-black nightclub or at an all-transvestite bar and everybody will dance. Her style of dress and her music videos are absolutely genius. That is why she can sell millions of records and have a fan base like no other.

She is only going to get bigger.

Lady Gaga truly has a style and talent all her own. When you see Beyoncé perform, it's clear she is trying to be like Tina Turner. You can easily see the similarities between Nicki Minaj and Lil' Kim. You can find a thousand Britney Spearses. Dancing R&B singers such as Chris Brown are a dime a dozen.

In the early '90s, I met Madonna at a party that Island Records founder Chris Blackwell was throwing in the Bahamas. You could feel her star power when she stepped into the room. Lady Gaga has that special aura too. When you see her on the red carpet in a meat dress, you know she doesn't care about being a mainstream celebrity. Lady Gaga has no problem pushing the envelope.

Many people think Lady Gaga is like Madonna, and there is some truth to that. Both ladies are once-in-a-lifetime performers. Madonna and Lady Gaga have changed people's lives the same way the Beatles and the Rolling Stones did in their heyday. When you can change a fan's life, that person will stay loyal to you no matter what. Lady Gaga's fans are like Dead Heads, following her on tour and dressing up all crazy to be a part of her Little Monster nation. That's why I respect Lady Gaga's art form and her music.

I just hope she doesn't go crazy and end up like Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, and all the other great artists who died too young. Hopefully, she is surrounded by the right people to keep her grounded.

THE ONLY REASON LADY MAN GAGGED SOLD MILLION AND CONTINUES TO DO Si is because of idiots like you and her worshipers, that satanic moron has absolutely no talent, steals music and dresses like a freak from hell.

You talk about Beyonce pretending to Tina, by the same grain you could say Gaga-Madonna. The article would have ben better off w/o that.

I think that Gaga has the star quality of Madonna...but as far as music/videos/performances go, she has pushed the envelope in different ways. Madonna was all about sex. Gaga is free from the mold of sex kitten that most pop stars, including Madonna, try to fit into. You can see Gaga's inspiration from Bowie, Mercury, Elton John...artists that have nothing in common with Madonna. As a girl who grew up loving rock, piano, and pop, I LOVE that she has meshed inspiration from all of these different sources into one new artist.

Can't believe you're drawing comparisons between the inate star power of Madonna and err.....the manufactured Lady Gaga! Madonna is smart, beautiful, bubbly, funny, entertaining, fascinating, inspiring .... That's for starters! How does LG fit into any of that??? She can't come close even to that? Fact! She doesn't. Madonna stands alone, she is UNIQUE ie without parallel. Purrleeease stop trying to create one!

I identify myself as bi/transvestite, drag queen and I TOTALY agree! She has been an inspiration to me since 2008. I love her music, make-up hair and her clothing style. As a fan, I spend a lot of time making outfits and updating my wig collection in an attempt to keep up with her ever evolving style. She's cutting her own path and where that path may lead no one knows (including Gaga herself)! I know I'm probably one of many gay boys who daydreams about what it would be like to walk in her fabulous heels! Her support and embrace of the LBGT community and her song born this way, makes me proud of who I am and unafraid to be ME!!! She's my idol!!! I'm so happy you agree!!!!!
