Lady Gaga's Label-Mate Wants to Shoot Her
Though it might sometimes be difficult to believe, not everyone in the world is a Lady Gaga fan. She even has detractors among her record label.
The "Alejandro" singer's new label-mate on Interscope Records, Sabrina, sent shock waves through the music community this week with the release of her new single, the provocatively titled "I Wanna Shoot Lady Gaga."
Responding to the subsequent uproar, the singer has now clarified that she doesn't literally want to put a bullet in Gaga—she just despises everything she stands for and thinks that she's washed up. As Sabrina explained at length,
"My song 'I Wanna Shoot Lady Gaga' is not about shooting Stefani Germanotta, the lonely, insecure girl better known to the world as her alter ego, Lady Gaga. The song is about killing off the gimmick, the character of Lady Gaga. Its not meant to be sadistic or evil, I mean, just check out the song's artwork. We used a squirt gun - nothing violent, just metaphorical. I want to kill everything she represents and stands for.
"I read in Forbes that Lady Gaga is one of the most powerful and influential people in the world...that thought turns my stomach. To think about how someone who is so morally bankrupt, who lacks integrity and gives slutty a whole new meaning, could hold such a position of influence is sickening. You know, [gossip blogger] Perez Hilton basically put her on the map and, quite frankly, I'd like to shoot him too. He is just as bad as she is. But when I see so many young girls emulating Lady Gaga - lip-syncing and following her every move, looking up to her - it makes me sick...and sad.
"That's why I wrote this song. Lady Gaga represents everything that is wrong with the core of our society. She's not a lady, she's a tramp. People see her as such a hero, especially the gay community; they celebrate her. She stands up there in her flesh suit and cries big old elephant tears and thanks her dear fans for being so brave, but what they don't realize is that everything she does is calculated. I feel like she uses them.
"I think 2011 is going to break her down. People are tired of her now. The gimmick is old and boring; she came out with such a bang that there is not much else she can do to hold our attention. Her strength has become her weakness. I think she'll start feeling herself being weeded out and she'll fall off as fast as she came in.
"So yes, I wanna shoot Lady Gaga. I'm telling you now, she needs to keep an eye out for me. I'll be walking up on the red carpet with a lil' pocket squirt gun filled with holy water and I'm gonna soak her from head to toe. Indeed."
Given Gaga's unusual wardrobe choices, maybe a baster would be a better weapon of choice?
Does Sabrina have a point, or is she just glomming onto Gaga for publicity? Render your verdict in the comments section—after listening to her tune below.
