I used to have absolutely no opinion on Lady Gaga other than the fact that I fucking hated Poker Face. And that wasn't even a jab at her, I just fucking HATED the song. Anyway, no opinion on her whatsoever.
Then a few years ago, she stepped out wearing this outfit after a plethora of tabloids criticized her for gaining weight.
Seeing her in this outfit made me like her. Maybe that's a dumb reason to suddenly like a stranger, but that's all it took for me to start having an opinion on her. Still no thoughts on her music at this point.
THAT opinion changed again after I recently saw her perform in Atlantic City. This woman? Fantastic. Forgive me for being THE LAST ONE TO KNOW, but I suppose it's better late than never. I can't describe what a fun show it was. I hadn't heard even one song off her new album Artpop before seeing her and I was still just in awe of her. The entire setlist was great, her outfits were way too fun and magnetic to look at - she's such a great performer. Even her between-songs banter was good! If you have a chance to see her on this tour, there's no reason not to. I'll still never like Poker Face, but this woman is incredible.
