Five Reasons Lady Gaga Doesn't Matter Anymore
Alright, we don't necessarily buy into this whole plump pop-tart notion, but you guys certainly do. All the gossip rags in America had a field day with Gaga's fluctuating weight, and things go so bad, she even had to out herself as having a lifelong problem with eating disorders. But what kind of pop stars are being hounded about their weight? That's right, the ones that are washed up. There's just nothing else left to say!
She's Let Others Fill Her Void
And that's not necessarily anyone's fault but her own. Gaga's the one who turned her back on the world in 2012, decided not to release a single minute of music. Sure, she's holed up in the studio working on Artpop. But while she's writing what she promises is, like, two albums worth of material, Justin Bieber has taken control of the Twitter universe, passing her for most followers in the world. Katy Perry is winning more Grammys and earning more number-one singles than even makes sense. Carly Rae Jepsen ... was a thing. C'mon Gaga, you're slipping. What are you doing?
She Debuted Songs on Farmville
And then there's this sad piece of information. In fact, the last time Gaga experienced anything close to her former Google glory of May 2010 was when she released some new music ... On Farmville.
Yeah, the same Farmville as that dumb game on Facebook your mom wouldn't stop sending you invites for. No, mom, I won't help feed your cows. No, Gaga, I don't want to listen to your Farmville single. That right there is the most irrelevant thing we've ever heard.
Will 2013 be a new year of relevancy for Gaga? Or have we all just kinda stopped caring?
