Lady Gaga made an appearance on tonight’s episode of Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, where she performed “Brown Eyes” in an extraordinary dress called “The Living Dress,” as well as her first ever live rendition of “Telephone.”
While the first performance highlighted Gaga’s massive talent as a singer and musician, the latter seemed to underscore her slightly sub-par dancing abilities. I mostly blame the song, however–I’m of the opinion that “Telephone” is perhaps one of the weakest tracks off of The Fame Monster. It’s just too all-over-the-place for me!
Still, Gaga remained Gaga throughout, which means we still have no idea who the fuck she is as a person.
There’s just nothing about the ‘always on’ aspect of her persona that I find appealing. I simply cannot connect to an artist that’s always in artist mode! I want to know deep down that you have a soul, and not one that’s been manufactured ‘for the fans.’
Great entertainer, though!
